The Kalkhoff Agattu Premium Impulse 8 not only offers smooth running and controlled power input - it also ensures you're quickly up to speed. This was the verdict of "ExtraEnergy". The magazine also reported that the pannier rack, which can be used for securing a travel bag, makes the Agattu Premium Impulse ideal for everyday and for touring. The shift-sensor makes for gentler gear shifting, which reduces wear to the components and extends their life.
The testers made special mention of the following features:
- The long range
- The starting assistance and pushing assistance
- The remaining range indicator
- The keyed alike battery and frame lock with the tried and tested one-key system
Verdict: A classic men's bike with clean lines and good touring components, which is also a pleasure to ride without the motor.
21 bikes were tested with the results: 11x "very good", 7x "good", and 3x "satisfactory". The full test report can be found in the 3/2015 issue of ExtraEnergy.
