Dahon and Ford Conclude Licensing Agreement
DUARTE, USA – Dahon and Ford Motor Company partnered to create a complete range of standard and folding bikes. Selected models of the range will be on show at the Taipei Int’l Cycle Show.
Later this year the full range will be available at retail in Asia and the USA and will expand to other markets in 2015.
At the Taipei Int’l Cycle Show Dahon will host a booth exclusively dedicated towards the new Ford bicycle range and featuring a selection of the top models. Inspired by Ford design, the bikes will translate the excitement of Ford to two wheels, with each bike featuring a theme.
Subject to market availability, the Mustang for example will be based on speed and style, imitating the original ‘pony car’, whilst the F-150 SVT Raptor will come with extra wide tires for off road riding with comfort and traction.
Additionally, these bikes will also include specialized technological features for performance and convenience, such as the ability to change shape from 3D to 2D for space saving when not in use. The Ford licensing agreement also includes e-bikes as well as bike accessories such as helmets, repair equipment and apparel.
