To the Dahon Boost aspedelec to “electrify” the engineers built a Sunstar motor ansand a small battery that can be easily removed and used, behind the seat tube. Visually a successful engagement.

Otherwise makes the lively Bike Fun: Agil, but well controlled, it always remains safely on course. The comfortableis not the small battery – and the good handles invite for longer trips.
