With the Dahon MuP8 Bionx conversion you get the best of both worlds: the Dahon MuP8 folding bike and the Bionx electric bike conversion kit. The Dahon MuP8 offers a comfortable ride and adjustable fit, as well as 8 speeds, a compact folded package, and a sleek, beautiful design. The Bionx electric bike conversion kit offers a wide range of assistance. You have four levels of pedal assistance, where the motor assists you at either 25%, 50%, 100%, or 200% of your effort as you pedal, a throttle (once the bike is in motion, you simply press down on the throttle to ride without pedaling), and regenerative braking (when set, this will help you recharge your battery as you use your brakes.)

The Dahon MuP8 Bionx conversion is one of the lightest and most compact folding electric bicycles on the market. The Dahon MuP8 Bionx conversion can be folded in less than 20 seconds into a compact size of approximately 13" x 25" x 30". The Bionx conversion kit offers an excellent range per charge. Using the bike's regular gearing in conjunction with the electric assistance just makes it that much more effective.

The Dahon MuP8 Bionx conversion is the perfect bike for the commuter or urban cyclist who wants the assistance of an electric bicycle without the usual heavy weight and large size, with the ability to fold it and take it into the apartment, the office, and on the subway or bus.

The Bionx electric motor system is customized for this particular folding bike and has options of a 250 Watt or 350 Watt motor (of continuous power and a peak of 400Watt/700Watt.) If you are of average rider weight and don't live in a very hilly area, the 250W motor will get the job done. If you're above average weight, plan on lugging a lot of weight with you, or live in an area with steep hills, the 350W motor would be your best option. Both versions of the Bionx kit come with both pedal activated assistance and throttle assistance modes.

The battery is Lithium Ion (Li-Ion), which is a simple, lightweight option. It will fully recharge within 4 hours and requires little maintenance. The battery can be charged on or off the bike, and the smart charger won't over-charge it; you can leave it plugged in overnight and not worry about it. The removable battery locks into place on the water bottle mount on the frame (out of your way) and the control console is easily accessed right on the handlebar.

The folding of the Dahon MuP8 is simple as well. All it requires is the hand-loosening of 4 clasps and the bicycle collapses to its folded size without the need of any tools, removing any of the wheels or adjusting any of the gears. The wires are out of the way and do not obstruct the folding and require no special attention in the folding process. The folded bicycle rests comfortably on its two wheels and seat post. The Dahon Mu P8 comes in an attractive blue.

Easy to fold and even easier to ride.
