In addition, Bosch also developed an automatic gear changer for the new systems: when changing gears the torque is reduced, so that damage to the gears and chain is noticeably reduced. The new Bosch Generation 2 motor systems are extremely responsive, giving a natural and smooth ride.
Drive Modes: The Bosch eSystem features a variety of drive modes to meet a wide range of needs, including the option to turn assist modes off. Turbo mode offers maximum power assistance with the motor contributing an additional 275% to the rider’s pedal power. Sport mode will give immediate power assist for sport riding and contributes 170%. Tour mode is optimal for long tours because of its consistent power and adds 110% to the rider’s efforts. Eco mode is the most effective drive mode to get maximum range by contributing 50% power. Lastly, the system has the option to turn off all assist modes and the bike will perform as a normal non-assisted bike would.
Display: The dual mode display has two main functions; to allow the rider to control drive parameters, and to display system information, including distance, time and speed. The control pad allows you to access all the computer and drive functions remotely, leaving your hands on the bar to maintain safety and security. To change motor settings while riding, simply push the large, glove friendly keys on the handle bar control pad. This ensures safety and stability, while still allowing you to control the motor for optimal performance.
