May be Dahon follows design and color scheme of 2017 superbikes like Ducati Monster, KTM Duke or BMW Motorrad with hump fuel tank and flaming red.

Still think that they should put more effort on the vertical fold model, eezz and Q8 instead of coming up with a brompton alike,with a ugly hump version.

The Curl has been around even before the Qix folding mechanism of the EEzz is invented. At that time, Brompton's 30 years patent haven't expire yet and also when the first launch was done, they made a mistake of pricing the Curl way too high as they had the Schlumpf Drive ( front internal crank gears) and also a rear internal gear incorporated. Although very ideal gear systems, it was too expensive for an unproven model. That's why it failed and over the years they display it in every bicycle exhibitions but fail to launch. Even now, they launched first with kick starter program and later the limited edition series.

I would have bought two if it was launched a few years ago and even after requesting through email for special 2 units (it was sold in US then) , they ignored my email without reply. The hump, some say 'UGLY' is subjective la. The hump is needed to accommodate the wheels (18 inch, bigger than the Bs) under the frame when folded. It folds more compact than the Brompton worr! smile.gif smile.gif But look at their other innovation, the stronger and lighter square top tube and especially the rear triangular latch connector which is like a non fold when unfolded. The Curl is guaranteed for riders till 150 KGS. That's an improvement in rigidity!

It would be a better commuting bike compared to Bromptons (that's what they were striving for, I think hmm.gif ). Lighter, folds smaller, 18 inch wheels (not 16inch), proven Shimano Nexus internal hub gears..........all this features are already an advantage over the Bromptons. But then, Bromptons will be Bromptons in popularity. It will take some time to dislodge their fan loyalty.

If only they sell the Curl cheaper with less specs, so it can be afforded easily.

i need curl, brompton is an status symbol and a bit not affordable to me.
Hope Curl will be below 5k that would be a sweet pricing spot.
I am waiting eagerly to buy one.

i'm hoping it's around 3-4k range. 5k is already near brommie's price territory. status symbol or not, it still screams quality in it's workmanship and the price of the used brommie doesnt drop too much. it has it's values.

brommies copies, when u see it in real life, really lacks in terms of finishing works and the folding capabilities is not as neat as the brommies. well, probably the curl will not fall in the same categories as those china copies anyway. chedech provides brommie carbon fame lookalike, but when you fold it, you cant roll it. and it lacks front fender too.

there's always pros and cons with these copies, with the most obvious pros is the price. it's either whether you can live with the cons.
