BH E-motion electric folding bike? Anyone have experience with this?

I'm considering a variety of options for my first bike purchase in 20 yrs, including high-end electric bikes, high-end folding bikes, and the BH E-motion folder. I've detailed my circumstances in a few other posts, but for this forum I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this bicycle.

It's relatively light as electric folders go, but is it fun and comfy to ride?

For that sort of money you could get a Brompton and do your own conversion.



My Brompton weighs 13kgs with the light weight motor and I carry a small 1Kg battery in the bag.

I guarantee a Brompton would ride better and the fold would be smaller and more portable. I commute 10.25 miles daily on round trip on it.

That said, if you want a ebike for long distances forget folders.


Regards

Jerry
