Pure riding fun, good reliability and great service life. The Haibike SDURO Trekking 4.0 rode to test victory in the
hotly-contested Easy Pedelecs product group.
Test riders were thoroughly won over by this eye-catching bike, much adorned with trendy yellow stickers. With motor assist the Haibike SDURO Trekking 4.0 was "super on all parts of the circuit”, and it was good to ride even without the motor.
When it comes to intuitive usability, Yamaha have taken a real step forwards. ExtraEnergy has for many years bemoaned the placement of their “on switch”, and they’ve now made some changes. When getting on the bike, the rider cannot see the on/off switch, but nonetheless it’s no problem to find and operate it, thanks to the internationally standard pictogram for “on/off” on the remote control unit. Test riders also rated it highly for ease of use, with the caveat that the icons on the remote control unit could be clearer.
In the dealer survey, above average good results were given for service availability, battery longevity and the reliability of the drive system.
