Lidl: out of stock for its low-cost electric bike

With each novelty, history repeats itself: products end up out of stock. After the smartphone at 70 euros, home automation devices or the Mr. Kitchen, Lidl is once again creating the event, this time in electric mobility. As detailed on the site Frandroid, the retail brand has just launched, in partnership with the German manufacturer Zündapp, an electric bike at a knockdown price.

The model, a Zündapp Z801, is sold in Spain and Germany at a price of 899.99 euros. A more than reasonable price for rather attractive options: the bike weighs 22.7 kg for a sloping aluminum frame and 27.5-inch wheels, a Tektro brake system, an aluminum crankset, a 114-link KMC chain or even a battery signed Samsung. If it’s still heavy enough, the mountain bike has a 250W motor with five levels of assistance. According to Zündapp, the bike can cover 30 to 125 km depending on load and riding style.

No mountain biking in France

Like all other electric bikes sold in Europe, the mountain bike marketed by Lidl is limited to 25 km/h. A rather interesting technical sheet therefore, for a price below its competitors, electric mountain bikes being rarely marketed below 999 euros, specifies Frandroid. Qualities that caused a rush of Spaniards and Germans on these mountain bikes already out of stock. Unfortunately for French consumers, there are currently no plans to launch it in France.

But let the French be reassured, because beyond the tempting commercial offer, the mountain bike sold by Lidl is in fact not the only good deal in the sector, specifies the specialized site. It is indeed possible to find other electric bikes for reasonable prices, especially at Decathlon or with the Nakamura E-Cliff, where mountain bikes are sold at 999 euros. Moreover, if the price announced by Lidl remains 100 euros below, it is only thanks to a promotion of 57% on the device, initially offered at 2,100 euros.
