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 minimised 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 into 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 license for small powered bikes. A driving license 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 pedaling 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 Purion Display
With the Purion, you are guaranteed to never lose sight of things. Its sleek design combines all relevant information on one small, easy-to-read display. While your hands stay firmly on the handlebars, you can navigate through all the functions with your thumb. The Purion is highly efficient, lightweight and trimmed down to the essentials.
Flexible load transport
The cargo bike of E-Bikes.
The Multicharger has a 64.5 cm long carrier and an optional luggage space. These large, fixed, 33-litre panniers make it as easy and handy to transport shopping and parcels as it is to carry everyday items such as laptops, keys, bottles and a spare battery. The shape and size of the bags make optimum use of the Multicharger’s cargo area. Excluding the luggage space, there is room for two standard bicycle bags on each side of the carrier. The standard front carrier offers additional transport space for luggage or smaller purchases.
Safe riding pleasure.
Force equals mass times acceleration. But anyone riding a fully loaded Multicharger for the first time might wonder whether this law of physics needs to be rewritten. Despite its generous loading volume and length, the Multicharger retains its extreme agility and manoeuvrability at all times, and you’re in control. So you can master every situation, whether in the city or on a long ride in the country.
Low weight and high load capacity
Weighs a little. Carries a lot.
The Multicharger sets new standards in terms of the ratio of size and weight to loading options. So a full family shop is no problem at all. Or even two small children – safely accommodated in child seats. It can transport an additional load of up to 60 kg with surprising ease on its rear. And if you carry the Multicharger up or down a few steps, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how light it is: the Multicharger weighs less than 30 kg in most model variants.
To match your Multicharger, the perfect accessories provide the ideal solution for your transport projects.
The optional passenger kit with comfortable foam seat, handles and footrests offers space for one passenger up to 60 kg.
Two fixed cargo bags, each with a volume of 33 litres, make optimum use of the cargo area. Full of useful details, everything finds its intended place.
Power from within.
The concentrated power of the 500 Wh battery is so perfectly integrated that it is easy to miss at first glance. You either charge it directly on the bike or remove the battery by lifting out and down. The integration into the frame protects the battery from moisture and stone chips while riding. The battery capacity can be doubled to 1,000 Wh with the optional DualBattery Technology – the use of a second external battery.
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.
A bright outlook.
At dusk, in the woods or late at night: Supernova’s or Busch & Müller’s LED headlamps provide consistently excellent road illumination whenever you go for a ride. They are supplied with power by the battery. Thus, full lighting power is ensured at all times – whether at high speeds or standing still, for instance when stopping at a traffic light.
Because not every adventure starts on your doorstep.
The optional DualBattery Technology perfected by Riese & Müller and boasting 1,000 Wh 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.
