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
Bosch PowerPack 500 frame battery
The powerful lithium-ion battery attached to the framehas an energy reserve of 500 Wh. High reliability and a service life of 800 to 1,000 charging cycles make it a strong companion over hill and dale. It can be charged directly on the E-Bike or removed from the frame in a single step. It takes 4.5 hours to charge from a fully discharged state. So with the PowerPack 500 you are perfectly equipped for any trip.
Bosch DualBattery 1,000 Wh
For long tours with lots of luggage or routes with considerable height differences, the DualBattery remains the benchmark. Riders using their E-Bike to commute to work also have to charge their bike less often. The load on the two frame batteries is minimised by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increasing 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.
Depending on the models
Bosch Performance Speed Gen 2 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 Gen 2 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.
The SmartphoneHub transforms the pedelec into a fully networked eBike and part of digital life: Thanks to the smartphone and the COBI.Bike app, the SmartphoneHub can become an intelligent control center that navigates, records activities and connects them to other services and apps. The eBike can also be started and controlled without a smartphone, because the display integrated within the SmartphoneHub shows you the most important riding data. That way you will remain flexible at all times – no matter where the route takes them.
Safe child transport
Keeping an eye on the most important thing.
The optional child seat allows you to convert the Packster 40’s cargo surface into a comfortable seating area for your child. A padded 5-point belt provides a high degree of safety and you’ll never lose sight of your most valuable cargo thanks to the upright seating position facing the rider. The seat cushion of the child seat can easily be folded into its footwell, creating a cargo surface in the blink of an eye. And the seat cushion is stowed safe and dry. The child seat is only available in combination with the Carry System.
Flexible load transport
Sets the bar high. Also in width.
Do you need to take more on your trip than you thought? Is the barbecue party in the forest bigger than expected? No need to fret, because the large cargo surface and permitted overall weight of 160 kg mean greater freedom and loads of spontaneity. With the optional box you can remove or fold down the wooden side walls to transport wide loads. And if you need to leave something important in the Packster 40, an optional lockable glove box provides extra storage space.
Adjustable seating position
The right size for everyone.
The height-adjustable stem and saddle allow you to adjust the Packster 40’s seating position to different body heights in the blink of an eye. This ensures that the Packster 40 can easily be ridden by almost any member of your family or circle of friends and a quick change of rider is possible at any time.
Low weight and compact size
Genuinely compact class.
The Packster 40 offers as much cargo surface as possible in as little space as necessary. With its reduced length, 48 cm-wide cargo surface and its agility, it needs less storage space than other E-Cargo bikes. And at less than 30 kg, it’s a real lightweight in its class. Its compact length means it can even be mounted on a car rear-mounted bike rack. To do this you only have to remove the front wheel, so the Packster 40 is only 2 metres long.
Metal framework with upholstered side walls made of weather-proof and water-tight Cordura material. Protected child seat for a child up to eight years of age. Glove compartment usable as an additional footwell. Optional cover.
Made of coated wood. Space for all your shopping. Side walls can be removed or folded down. Also suitable for four-legged friends.
Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.
Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This increases capacity to an incredible 1,000 Wh. Besides being able to go twice as far on long trips, you no longer have to worry about your range in your day-to-day riding either. The second battery is mounted behind the cargo surface in order to keep the bike’s centre of gravity low and to maintain the excellent riding behaviour. This is why the DualBattery version is only available in combination with the box or the Carry System.
Steals success for thieves.
Park your bike wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The permanently fitted Abus Shield frame lock secures your bike in no time at all and the optional 130cm chain lock can be used to quickly lock it to the nearest lampost. Especially parctical: frame chains and battery lock close with the same key.
A bright outlook.
At dusk, in the woods or late at night: Supernova’s or Busch & Muller’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.
Pack twice as much.
If the front storage space is not enough, there is always the optional carrier. It is ideal for attaching panniers, making it perfect for longer bike trips too. On the HS models, the carrier is fitted as standard (not in the USA and Canada)
