Can a folding e-bike be beautiful? Hands on with Blaupunkt.

Techstination feature for Friday, November 4, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        A folding e-bike that is solid and looks good too?    That’s the deal from Blaupunkt…the well known automotive audio brand that is out with new, beautifully designed bikes.   Those are our initial impressions of  the Henri model we have begun to check out.   It is simple to fold and unfold…fitting easily in most hatchbacks or trunks….and weighs about 47 pounds.  Brian Tedesco is heading Blaupunkt Americas..

“Our focus or our idea was to be best in class in something that is portable, something that’s affordable and something that is durable.”

The bikes are powered by a 36 volt rear wheel hub motor…which you can use as an assist as you pedal…in throttle mode…or not at all.   The frame is diecast magnesium.   The price…at www.bpamericas.com is under two thousand dollars.
