E-bike Pedelec: Bergamont Vagonda N8

Bergamont presents the Vagonda an affordable touring Pedelec with great amenities. When driving, the customer has to compromise, as our E-bike test shows.

What we like

  • comfortable, sporty seating position
  • good equipment

What we do not like

  • louder front engine, traction weak on wet or loose surfaces
  • unreliable battery indicator

The Bergamont Vagonda has the makings of premium touring E-Bike: The cranked arm with ergonomic grips feels good in the hand, Magura HS 11 delayed test strong and easy to dose, supported by hitting a coaster brake.

The frame of hydroformed aluminum tubes like that suspension seatpost as the Nexus 8-speed hub that convinces — advantage of the front-wheel drive — is decoupled from the motor works and shifts smoothly and without jerking.

The Promovec hub motor of the pedelec impressed less: He starts slightly jerky after a half turn of the crank, then pushes but strong and constant, accompanied by the typical twang. On steep mountains in the test lacked but the bite — the driver has to pedal vigorously. In flat terrain of movement Senor keeps the engine already in looser pedaling momentum.In tight corners — or to turn back — makes the sudden start of the engine at times for unsightly surprises. Therefore: Better contact with easily drawn lever, a sensor then deactivates the motor.
