Hercules Alassio - Easy Very Good, City-Comfort Very Good

A lovely city-comfort pedelec in which the SR Suntour drive once again showed what it can do: combined with this very easy-rolling bike it gives a huge fun factor.
 

 
You could certainly ride in comfort along the Riviera di Ponente though Alassio, Italy, on this Hercules Alassio. In a simple, black design with discreet colour highlights and bright lining, it achieved a huge range on the Tour route: 85.4 km. The SR Suntour drive system first came onto the market in 2015 in this form, and on this test bike it has proven itself again. The motor pulls smoothly and powerfully from a standing start. 

“Hills? What hills?” commented our test riders. Yet the power assist factor, at 0.88, is significantly lower compared to the Hercules Jarvis in the 2014/15 test. The reason for this is the exceptionally high leg power put in by our test riders, at 207.7 W, which means that the U-factor has fallen significantly. The test riders were simply having so much fun that they could not rein in their power!
