Classic meets technology: The DYU C6 electric bike in the test

Classic meets technology: The DYU C6 electric bike in the test

[Display] Today it's all about the bike again! In fact, we recently tried the DYU C6 e-bike and were really impressed with what you can get for well under €1.000 these days. The bike is a new model that impresses with its intelligent, classic and nostalgic design. In terms of looks, we still know bicycles from the past, just not with batteries. The technical details of the bike deserve special mention. The DYU C6 has a 26-inch frame and is equipped with a 36V powerful 350W high-speed motor on the rear hub. This is a decent drive that reliably brought us to a top speed of 25 km/h. The motor's support is noticeable at every level, especially when it comes to climbing hills or moving quickly through city traffic. Because that's exactly where the bike is at home, as we think!

The DYU C6's lithium battery has a capacity of 12,5 Ah, which allows for an impressive range of 50-70 KM. And that's exactly what we've been able to achieve several times. According to the manufacturer and user reviews, the battery can provide enough energy to reach any place you want to visit. That may be a bit optimistic, but it's definitely enough for the classic tour. Another feature that we appreciate about the bike is the Shimano 6-speed gears. Thanks to this, we were able to move smoothly, even on hills and bumpy roads.

In terms of weight, the DYU C6 weighs 27 kg. This makes the bike light enough to maneuver and park effortlessly, despite the robust construction. This is an aspect that some users also highlighted in the first online reviews​​. As for the design, the DYU C6 has a classic and nostalgic look with a traditional European handlebar style. It is equipped with an upgraded, soft and widened high-end seat that not only provides comfort but also adds to the overall aesthetics of the bike.

Good materials and practical details!

Overall we were really happy with the performance of the DYU C6, although we have to say that we've only pedaled 135 km so far. The quality is good and everything stayed intact and the bike always felt solid and durable. Whether we were cruising around town or just taking a leisurely weekend cross-country ride, the DYU C6 was a great choice. And of course we also have to mention the comfort of the frame, which makes getting on and off the bike a lot easier. There was even a nostalgic front basket and a classic rear rack, which made transporting things a breeze. A small dog even sat in the front for a short time, apparently enjoying the ride. There was enough space in the basket!

In summary, the DYU C6 electric bike is a fantastic bike. It is well designed, easy to drive and easy to handle. The battery and the functions/features (12V LED headlight, rear light, etc.) worked very reliably in our tests. The bike is excellent value for money and has all the features we have come to expect from an electric bike. The half-twist throttle is cool, but it is not allowed to be connected in this country.

nothing for the terrain, but for the road

As for the driving characteristics, the DYU C6 performed well especially on the road. It is easy to control and provides a smooth and comfortable ride, with no wobbles or tremors. We enjoyed every ride around the city and other places we visited​. One aspect we particularly appreciate is the ease of use of the DYU C6. The controls are intuitive and easy to learn, making it an option for beginners as well. The 6-speed Shimano rear derailleur also helps make riding easier in a variety of conditions.

Although the DYU C6 electric bike has many advantages, there are also some points that we think could be improved. One of them is weight. While 27kg isn't uncommon for an electric bike, it might be too heavy for some, especially when it comes to carrying the bike down to the basement or anteroom. Overall, however, we think the pros of the DYU C6 far outweigh the cons. With the excellent performance, stylish design and comfortable riding experience, it is a good choice for those who are looking for a reliable and functional e-bike.

To sum up, the DYU C6 electric bike strikes a unique balance between classic design and modern technology. It's a highly reliable, capable and stylish electric bike that's perfect for both your daily commute and weekend leisure rides. With its powerful motor, long-lasting battery and high-quality components, it enables an incomparable driving experience. Our conclusion: recommendable!
