Unidentified light aeroplane D-KDFL

I've not been able to identify this German aeroplane yet (nor make or model). Anyone any suggestions?

Aha! It's what I would call a motor glider!
"The two-place self-launching SF-25 Falke features side-by-side seating, spoilers, a steerable tail wheel and wing outrigger wheel for taxiing. Originally powered by the Stamo, the -25C model introduced the 45 kW/ 60 bhp Limbach SL 1700 EA with a full electric system including starter and optional propeller feathering. The SF-25-2000 has an 59 kW/ 80 bhp Limbach L 2000 EA, and is offered with a conventional powered aircraft two wheel landing gear instead of a single sailplane type main wheel. The –25E Super Falke, with 18 m. folding wing has a 48 kW/ 64 bhp Limbach engine. Falkes were built under license by equivalents of the SF-25B and –25C with a Rollason- Volkswagen 36 kW/ 48 bhp 1, 600 engine, without and with electric system respectively." From the Scheibe web site. I should have guessed this really, as we have a Scheibe Bergfalke (similar glider with no engine) in our museum (Aeroseum Gothenburg), where I showed it to visitors today!
