TheAspiro receives its driver with a sporty seating position, a narrow arm – and a hemdsärmelig agierendem pedelec engine. Although the Giant has a fantastic even with light pedal pressure forward – but only with a sonorous hum.
The harsh tone does not put the engine in the test from even while driving, but he pushes on the mountain with a lot of pressure. The pedelec battery placed Giant side of the luggage carrier, which is detrimental to driving safety: The focus is off-center, when turning with hands that Aspiro is restless, especially when the narrow tires rumble across manhole cover. Here, the hard spring elements made themselves felt in the test.
The cockpit display shows important speedometer functions and, very reliable, the battery level. On display, the driver turned on by the three levels: no back and forth, but always in one direction. He always stumbles in the “Off” mode. Convince could the good installation and clean cable routing in the test.
