    They sure know where their market is - at least half of the motorhomers on my site in Sicily have high-end electric bikes. The other half wish they had electric bikes!

    He's only minted because of all the money he's saved buying in Europe.

    I am minted but only because I pay 2 jars of Marmite for a bicycle... not €2500.

    Madness...

    Can't remember which one, but it is only re-branded bike from an e-bike manufacturer that can be brought for less, unless of course you want to pay a €1000 for a stuck on Hymer label.

    Like any manufacturer branded item, Hymer van's are not a rip off just the UK dealers that sell them, cheaper than a lot of sub standard vans that are sold over here.

    well, of course it's re branded.. just as Land Rover, BMW et all . bikes, prams, clothing etc are not made by them..

    but rather doubt if they are marking it up by €1,000 ..

    personally I prefer our Kalkhoffs .. with the Gates belt drive and cartridge gears which are maintenance free...

    That's the one, actually Hymer have brought the price down below what e-bike retailers are charging for the AVE, I think Hymer's original price was €3499.

    In all honesty ,great as the bike may be ,there is no way I could justify spending that amount of hard earned income on it...in fact even the cheaper ones are well out of my price range..I would love a good e bike but not at any price..

    Quite right. A Rolex watch will tell the same time as a cheap Chinese one, off ebay. In fact the one I got for under a dollar keeps time to a second a month and has done for 3 years. So good I bought a couple more and they stay in near perfect time.
