The motor

All Riese & Müller E-Bikes and E-Cargo bikes are equipped with Bosch motors from the Active and Performance lines. The drives impress with absolutely no need for maintenance and are among the most reliable on the market. With pedal assistance of up to 25 km/h, and up to 45 km/h on our HS models, you can reach any destination effortlessly.

With the tremendous driving force of the Bosch motors, you can conquer any terrain and any mountain. Its aesthetically pleasing integration into the crank bearing ensures plenty of ground clearance, a low centre of gravity, directional stability and the direct transfer of force to the back wheel via a chain or belt. The riding experience provided by the mid-mounted motor most closely approximates the sensation of riding a normal bike. All Riese & Müller E-Bikes are Pedelecs and S-Pedelecs (with the HS models). The driving force is controlled using the pedals, not via an accelerator handle as on a motorbike. The harder you push on the pedals, the more the electric drive supports you. When you stop pedalling, the motor stops, and you continue to roll – just like on any normal bike.

 

A pushing and starting aid fitted as standard helps your E-Bike up slopes even when you’re not sitting in the saddle. The button used to make your bike push itself at 6 km/h is located on the external control unit. The maintenance-free motors have an electronic control unit with an ultra-modern 32-bit processor and sensors for power, pedal rate and speed. Thanks to 1,000 sensor measurements per second, its coordination is superb. The higher the power, the higher the torque and therefore the faster the acceleration. The maximum speed up to which your motor provides assistance is 25 km/h, while the Performance Speed motor on our HS models assists you at up to 45 km/h. The combination of the motors with a derailleur gear enables a greater degree of efficiency than the combination with a hub gear.

Calculate the range of your next E-Bike tour in advance online. You can enter parameters such as the rider’s weight, motor, battery or type of terrain. You can also influence the range independently of your E-Bike's technology. Reduced pedal assistance and more muscle power on your part can increase the range significantly.
