Motobecane announced the HAL eBoost Pro, a full suspension e-bike using the Shimano STEPS e8000 system. It features a RockShox Pike fork, full Shimano XT drivetrain, and true four bar linkage system. Perhaps the biggest news, however, is the promotional $3,500 price – a number less than half of many competitors’ offerings.

Motobecane may not be the brand with the most cachet, but they’re certainly offering a ton of value for your dollar. The 2020 HAL eBoost Pro is breaking new ground with a $3,500 price point (for now), hitting an unthinkable price for a full suspension bike with the Shimano e8000 pedal assist motor. Motobecane also claims that it’s the first full suspension e-MTB in the USA with the high-end Shimano motor, though we’re aware of existing options from BMC and Pivot, to name a couple.
Motobecane advertises an impressive spec, and compatibility with both 27.5″+ and 29″ wheels (with 27.5 x 2.8″ tires stock). Complete bike weight is quoted at 48.2 lbs without pedals or reflectors.
The Motobecane HAL eBoost Pro is available now, for a promotional price of $3,499.95 in partnership with BikeTiresDirect.com. However, they note that this price will rise as sales goals are met, with an official list price of $7,999.
