Reaction from Joshua Hon on Filed Lawsuit by Dahon:

“My father, Dr. David Hon, has done a tremendous amount to further sustainable transport. Obviously, the decision to separate was not taken lightly. I myself have spent virtually my entire working life building the Dahon brand. It has always been my wish, my mother’s wish, and the entire Global team’s wish to let my father continue with the Dahon brand with dignity. That is why we took the hard road of starting a new brand. My father has a legacy to be proud of and we don’t want to see that legacy tarnished.

“Sadly however, it seems that this is not to be. It is true that a lawsuit has been filed by Dahon North America. We believe that the suit is entirely without merit. In addition, we believe that the press release announcing the suit is misleading, inaccurate, and defamatory. We are preparing an appropriate legal response.

“Although you can imagine that I have plenty to say, since we are currently in litigation it’s better to let our attorney’s handle additional statements. Meanwhile, we’re all busy getting ready for Eurobike and getting the new Tern bikes ready for shipment – there are lots of customers waiting who just want good bikes.”
