Never heard of that motor but it likely to be slightly better than whatever junk from Alibaba and his 40 theives though I would go Tern if you really need folding. Tern is David Hon's Son and Former Wife taking what they learned and improving, they use quality Bosch drives or lower quality Bafang mid-drives which are at least easier to get parts and get service for not as easy as Bosch but certainly not terrible and you get a 10 year warranty on the Tern parts (5+5 if you sign up for Tern Care). I think Dahon these days has sort of fell quality wise a little they used to make some really nice stuff and now Tern has taken that torch and is burning bright.
