US $640 for a Dahon Vitesse D7HG, after importation and markup fees, that's about C $680~750.
With the MEC Dahon you get a double leg kickstand and plastic chain guard and one more gear, that's not present on the D7HG.
Dahon doesn't offer an 8sp IGH folding bike.
That is pretty much the ultimate commuter bike. Only thing you could possibly improve upon is by having a dynohub and light, but that would make it $1100 or so.
