The Bosch system
Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which we hold our E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That’s why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.
Bosch 500 Wh PowerTube
The Bosch PowerTube battery with its 500-Wh energy reserve sets the standard for design and function. Fully integrated in the frame, it remains almost invisible and perfectly protected at all times. The high-quality lithium-ion battery can be charged directly on the bike.
When unlocked, it automatically pops a few centimeters out of the frame, so that it can be removed quickly and easily for external charging with the Bosch charger at any normal socket as well.
Depending on the models
Bosch Performance CX motor
The Performance CX is the most powerful Bosch E-Bike motor ever – with pedal assistance of up to 300 %, a maximum torque of 75 Nm, very sporty start-up characteristics and pedalling rate assistance up to 120 rpm. With “Direct Flow” you have a powerful push on the back wheel from speeds of just 20 rpm. Whether it be uphill or on the flat, this acceleration will inspire you. Another highlight in the new Performance CX motor is the eMTB mode, which replaces the previous Sport mode (this is displayed as Sport mode on the Intuvia Display). Here, the progressive motor assistance automatically adapts to the individual riding style regardless of pedal pressure. This ensures optimum assistance at all times, which really pays off on climbs.
Depending on the configuration
Bosch Intuvia Display
The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times. It provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. On our automatic E-Bike models, the automatic version of the display also offers an option for controlling the pedal frequency. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.
The Bosch SmartphoneHub is the most intelligent communication system for E-Bike riders. The free app turns your smartphone into a display which bundles all functions together: navigation with live weather, fitness data and much more. Other standard smartphone functions such as calls and music playback can be controlled and used directly in the app while riding. It is convenient and reliable to operate using buttons on the handlebar or voice control. Your smartphone is automatically charged during your trip. But it also works without a mobile phone: in that case an integrated display shows key riding data. The Quick Start Guide will get you up and running with the system in no time at all while regular wireless updates will keep you up to date.
Control Technology and permanent lighting
The safety concept
Riese & Müller Control Technology is synonymous with safety and dynamism: the perfectly tuned full suspension of the newly developed rear swing arm ensures a sporty riding experience and the best traction even at high speeds. The permanently switched-on low beam with main beam switch increases your visibility in traffic.
Power from within.
The concentrated power of the 500 Wh battery is so perfectly integrated that it is easy to miss at first glance. However, once located it is very easy to remove: just lift upwards in a single movement – or simply charge it directly on the bike. The integration into the frame protects the battery from moisture and stone chips while riding.
Carbon belt drive
Anyone riding an E-Bike with the Gates CDX carbon belt drive is at peace. And in two ways: because on the one hand the innovative drive offers a wonderfully smooth ride and great riding comfort. While at the same time being unbelievably low-maintenance and performing its tasks with the utmost reliability. The carbon belt drive provides a new, carefree riding experience – for every need and every intent.
Integrated battery and dynamic design

The Culture GT is an invitation: its particularly uncomplicated step-through encourages you to immediately hop on and go for a ride. The battery’s sleek integration magnificently accentuates the Culture GT’s frame and its dynamic look. So, what are you waiting for?
Smartphone docking and additional display
The Bosch SmartphoneHub transforms your smartphone into a display and communication system, in which all functions are combined: intelligent navigation with live weather, fitness data and much more. It is convenient and reliable to operate using buttons on the handlebar or voice control. Your smartphone is automatically charged during your trip. But it also works without a mobile phone: in that case an integrated display shows key riding data.
