Riese & Muller Homage Touring HS 2018 Features:

The Bosch System:

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – our requirements for our e-bikes also apply to all components, especially the drive. That is why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Superior Driving Characteristics:

In conjunction with the low throughput, the sporty suspension gives the homage the best everyday qualities. The extremely stiff frame provides for superior handling – even at high speeds.

Control Technology:

Only an e-bike with true full suspension keeps contact with the ground on bad roads – and you have full control. The active rear wheel swing, the optimized front wheel suspension, and the spring-loaded luggage carrier form the core of Control Technology. They ensure a better road situation and drive safely at high speeds and in delicate moments. The immediately noticeable advantage is the back-friendly ride comfort. Vibrations and hard impacts such as cobbled streets or road edges are significantly mitigated. In addition, your luggage is protected by the frame-mounted suspension rack.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes:

With all the technical improvements the bike has experienced over the last 100 years: strong, reliable brakes are still essential. That is why, depending on the model, we rely on hydraulic Shimano Deore disc brakes that guarantee maximum control in any situation and weather. With its large brake discs, the braking effect can be best measured. They do not create any wear on the rim and ensure constant braking performance.

Motor: The Riese & Muller HS models utilize the Bosch 350 Watt Generation 2 Performance Speed motor delivering up to 60Nm of torque, rated as the best in the industry.  The Performance Speed motor will provide assistance up to 28 mph. The new Bosch Drive Units are fitted with sensors for power, pedal rate and speed with a sampling rate of 1,000 readings per second using a modern 32-Bit processor, the motor seamlessly adjusts to your abilities. 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.

Battery: Bosch PowerPack 500 Performance, 36 V, 13,4 Ah/500Wh – The most powerful PowerPack available from Bosch. Ultra-modern Bosch lithium ion batteries with 500 Wh energy reserve provide the power for our E-Bikes. The more Watt hours the battery has, the wider its range. This also depends on numerous other factors, such as the pedal assistance level set, the pace, the outside temperature or the inclination of the route. The range computer on the display provides more detailed information. When it’s stop-and-go in the city, the range is shorter than with a constant journey over a longer distance – comparable with the fuel consumption of a car. If you find while you’re on a ride that your battery’s residual power is not going to be enough to complete your journey, you can reduce the degree of assistance and therefore still reach your destination comfortably.

The lifespan is 800 – 1,000 charging cycles. Thanks to the short charging times, the battery can be significantly topped up during a lunch break, for example. A complete charge takes just 4.5 hours.

Display: The variable mode Bosch Intuvia LCD 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 handlebar control pad. This ensures safety and stability, while still allowing you to control the motor for optimal performance.

Riese & Muller uses a modern Just in Time inventory strategy. Every bike is built to order in their Germany factory.

We have worked with R&M and several logistics partners to offer our customers several ordering options.

Twice a month we receive a container from Riese & Muller shipped via Sea Freight. If preferred, you have the option of having your bike shipped individually to you, arriving to us one week after it is built, for $300. **please note that cargo bikes are excluded from expedited shipping.

If you’d like a bike shipped to your home it will have to go to our shop first for us to fully build and test the bike. Please select freight when checking out.
