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.
Depending on the configuration
The DualBattery option with a 500 Wh PowerTube integrated in the frame and a 500 Wh frame battery mounted on it combines the best of both worlds. Together the batteries achieve 1,000 Wh. The load on the batteries is minimized by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increases the service life. Using the included Bosch Standard charger, both batteries can be charged directly on the bike or at any normal socket once removed. Both can even be charged together on the bike. The charging time for a single battery from a fully discharged state is only 4.5 hours. Charging them on the bike together, both batteries are fully operational again after 9 hours. It is also possible to use just one battery.
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 Speed motor
Assistance up to a speed of 28 mp/h makes the Performance Speed drive the fastest Bosch E-Bike motor. Sporty start-up characteristics, 350 watts of power and pedal assistance up to 275 % guarantee the ultimate riding pleasure with a maximum drive torque of up to 63 Nm with derailleur gear and up to 50 Nm with hub gear. For the Speed motor, you need an insurance certificate and a driving licence for small powered bikes. A driving licence for class MA (from the age of 16 upwards) or for cars includes this. Helmets are mandatory on HS models. We recommend using an E-Bike helmet that complies with the EN 1077 and EN 1078 standards.
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 Kiox Display
With the Bosch Kiox display, the E-Bike turns into the ultimate sparring partner for performance-driven riders. Various training modes and perfect handling, with special features such as tactile pressure points on the control unit, help you to continuously step up your performance. It is even possible to pair it with heart rate monitors via Bluetooth. The display made from scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass is easy to read in intense sunlight, while the magnetic holder ensures simple handling. The ultra-modern Kiox is small, robust, compact and ready for the E-Bike future.
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.
Great safety, even at high speeds.
And to potholes, lumps and bumps. Vibrations and sharp shocks are simply ironed out. Because with Control Technology – full suspension plus other safety components – the Homage maintains contact with the ground on poor road surfaces and you remain in full control. As the flagship of Control Technology, only the very best components from Fox Factory have been used. The active rear swing arm, optimised front wheel suspension and co-sprung luggage carrier form the core of this technology. They ensure better road holding, a more sporty feel and increased safety at high speeds and in tricky situations.
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.
Because not every adventure starts at your doorstep.
The DualBattery Technology perfected by Riese & Müller ensures twice the range or far higher climbs, fewer charging breaks and longer-lasting riding pleasure. The batteries are so cleverly positioned that the extra weight has no noticeable impact on riding behaviour – and yet both are easy to remove. With the 1,000 Wh now available, completely new destinations can be reached and you no longer have to worry about your range in your daily routine.
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.
Always on high alert.
This lock knows all about quiet and loud noises: the Abus Bordo Alarm 6000A is activated as soon as you use it to secure your E-Bike. Move the bike only slightly and you’ll hear a short, quiet sound. Attempt to steal it, and you’ll trigger a 100 db alarm. Enough to frighten off any would-be thief. Naturally, this folding lock is also extremely strong and robust – and it closes with the same key as the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike.
Load up, set off.
Baskets and panniers can be secured to the carrier in no time, thanks to the “snapit” system from racktime. With just a click, your load can be changed quicker than a pit stop. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.
No more sudden surprises with the Supernova M99 Mini front light. An impressive 1,250 lumens illuminate the road in a way that previously only car headlamps could manage. And even the 600-lumen dipped beam is far brighter than most conventional E-Bike headlamps. On all 28 mph models and even all 16 mph models, the brake light is integrated in the rear light to ensure that you are even safer on busy roads.
The fastest route to a standstill.
The hydraulic Magura MT4 disc brakes deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake discs allow the braking effect to be distributed most effectively. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.
