Cheetah Electric Folding Bike (Discontinued)

The Cheetah has been discontinued - Check back for news on the new Dillenger Eco!

The Dillenger Cheetah represents years of development to deliver the worlds most affordable folding electric bike while maintaining a high level of build quality.


Product Description



The Dillenger 16” Cheetah electric folding bike is a breath of fresh air in a crowded marketplace. We know that you just want a sensible electric bike to fold neatly for travel on public transport. You are not looking for something to ride off jumps with or break the land speed record. Well, if comfort, function and great value is what you are after then you have found it.

Extra Torque

Hills are steep! – You give us feedback and we listen. The Cheetah electric folding bike now comes with an upgraded transmission that uses the latest gear reduction drives. This upgrade results in huge hill climbing gains, and better all-round performance..

Great Range

With the Cheetah electric folding bike, you get our upgraded 12Ah SLA battery as standard. This bumps the range up to a very impressive 40 km. With many of our customers reporting ranges of over 50 km’s! Being a folding electric bike means the Cheetah is perfect for popping in your car boot, parking out of town, and cycling to work. Avoiding parking and fuel charges.


Along with the performance upgrades, we have put a lot of energy into comfort. The top of the line mid mounted shock absorber upgraded and tuned to provide a great riding experience. Combined with the new sprung saddle, riding this electric folding bike feels more like you are riding on a cloud.

Highly recommend for commutingReview by Teresa Zhang
Functions as Described
Overall Rating
Though it took so long to get my new cheetah, it gave me a big surprise. By using it, the slight uphill road becomes just nothing. But on the quite hilly road, i still have to make a lot of effort to make sure the fuse would not blow out. Anyway, it is highly recommend for commuting to save the time and money wasted on the way!

Easy to transport, ride and parkReview by Bill J

We recently went on our first trip in our motorhome. Instead of towing a car we opted to buy 2 Dillenger Cheetah electric bikes. These proved to be easy to transport, ride and park with no security worries and we have ridden them in towns all over central west and northern Queensland. Not bad for a couple of retirees not used to pushbike riding.
Great bikes and top service from the team at Dillenger
When we bought our motorhome every one said you have to tow a car with you. We googled electric push bikes and purchased 2 Cheetahs [price was a big factor] and they proved more than adequate for slipping into shopping centres/sight seeing etc. Initial fears of riding a motorised bike [we are both in our sixties] were soon allayed.
Easy to transport, ride and park with safe key locking feature these Cheetah bikes are revolutionising push bike riding.
Great job Dillenger (Posted on 23/03/2015)
It will pay for itself in just a couple of monthsReview by Ian Proudlock

Here is my Cheetah caged and ready to go. My latest contract is for 2 years and in a place where free parking is over a km away. I saw your add and bought the bike and the problem is solved. Being in the 60s age bracket I didn’t fancy the trudge to and from the work site especially in our Perth summer months so you and the Cheetah came to my rescue and it will pay for itself in just a couple of months.

Life has never been sweeter,
Since I bought my Dillenger Cheetah,
Very handy when going to the shops,
Little chance of being pulled over by the Cops,
The best little bike I’ve ever had,
You see I am a grey nomad,
The Cheetah goes - just like a rocket,
Folds up to nearly fit into my back pocket,
( Oh well ……… nearly,
And, of course, I love it dearly),
It’s all charged up and ready for duty,
My Dillenger Cheetah - a little beauty !!!!

I have had my cheetah for just about 2 months now and I love it, easy to ride and easy to store, and it folds up nicely in my car I do not even have to put the seats down. Excellent for city travel and is able to nimbly weave in-between traffic jams, would definitely recommend to my friends and family. (Posted on 16/02/2015)

I love my Cheetah folding electric bike. Review by Nikki Whelan

Overall Rating
I love my Cheetah folding electric bike. It’s been very handy for trips to the local shops and great for cruising around the suburbs on weekends. Best of all, being electric it takes all the hard work out of uphill peddling and longer distance rides.
I looked at a lot of different brands and models of electric bikes before purchasing the Cheetah, but I couldn't go past the quality, design and value of this bike. I also love the fact that it is made by an Australian company and built to Australian standards. That was a very important point of difference making me choose this electric bike over others available on the market. My Cheetah also saves me money in petrol and public transport fares. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! Thanks so much Dillenger for providing such a high quality product at a very reasonable price.

We purchased two cheetah bicycles. We have had a lot of fun on the bikes they are neat compact vehicles and zip along. Mostly we ride them like normal bikes and just use the power for extra boost when we get tired.
We bought these bikes specifically for when we are on holidays with our camper van. Once set up, we have our bikes to explore the surrounding areas and towns with. Great idea......great bikes......and so affordable
