Here is the Webpage with all the details on this particular kickstand (except that the price is wrong, it is more like 25 dollars).

While it is a perfect fit as far as fitting on the bike, you do have to remember not to bump it against a curb a stair step, or the like as it hangs a bit low under the frame, then it either interferes with the cranks turning or becomes loose-or both as you can see from my photo below before readjusting it (just 1 time, now I know about lower hang). I have been using it for 6 months. I rather liked it.
Just got back from my local purveyors and decided that a single-leg kickstand is not the right kind for the intended use of this bike. Still like your Giant kickstand?

It seems to be on the Dahon Curve too as this video from NYCEWheels shows:

OH MY DOG! That is pretty.Fenders might be a good idea if you can fit them but it looks nice the way it is.
