Not sure about where they sit in the range but Bergamont are ace.
You want to get one with a 3rd generation motor. I think Bosch are top of the line but 3rd gen is the way To go.
Why not save him a ton of money and buy one of the electric wheel/crank conversions for about £3/400 for his existing bike?
My LBS has a dog named Bosch. That tells me what I need to know.
In terms of propulsion, the Bosch crank drive system is reliable and gives a reasonably authentic cycling experience.
It's fitted to dozens of makes - and types - of bicycle, so it depends what father likes to ride.
As a general point, Cube/Bosch bikes look good value, starting at under £2,000.
Hub motor bikes are a bit cheaper, some of the Chinese stuff is truly dreadful, but there are decent makes.
Worth a look at Wisper - various styles available.
Still Chinese, but reasonable quality, @welsh dragon has a Wisper which she is pleased with.
Wisper's owner, David Miall, is a good guy who believes in looking after people, so you will get some genuine customer service which you wouldn't get with a Chinese cheapie off ebay.
As Pale Rider says, i am very happy with my bike. I have had it for 2 years now and apart from a flat this last week, i havn't had any trouble with the bike itself.
