Gazelle Orange C7 HFP + Step Through
Gazelle - Special Offer.
We have reduced the price of this bike making it excellent value.
The HFP denotes that is it a front hub panasonic motor.
All of the Gazelle range are excellent quality bikes. They are assembled and painted in their factory just outside Amsterdam that has been making bikes for over 100 years. Gazelle are the predominant bike manufacturer in Holland with over 30% market share. The bikes they make are made for comfort, low maintenance and durability. They acheive this with a comfortable 'sit up and beg' style with a wide, softer saddle, a suspension seat post, full chain guard (with brushes inside) and 7 or 8 speed hub gears.
We like the Gazelle Panasonic range of bikes. You get the quality of a Gazelle frame and the components but the overall cost is brought down because it is a Panasonic rather than a Bosch system. As with Bosch we are still able to plug in a diagnostic tool.
The battery quoted is the Bronze version - 238 watt hours. Other options and the additional cost are as follows:
Silver: 317 wh - £90
Gold: 396 wh - £190
Platinum - £260
The bike is available in three colours - matt black, 'industry grey' or premium white.
