Performance Line – the smart system

Powerful, but natural

The versatile and virtually silent Performance Line is now also part of the smart system. Take advantage, stay active and keep exploring your surroundings. With the eBike Flow app, you can keep your eBike up-to-date with over-the-air updates at all times: Use the new Auto Mode riding mode and enjoy the ride. Despite powerful support, the drive unit offers a natural riding feel and more safety – for example, through the new Bosch eBike ABS.

At a glance

New Tour+ riding mode

Quiet drive unit

The sophisticated gear concept of the Performance Line enables an almost silent ride.

Multi-sensor concept

The support adapts to your riding style and is optimal for sporty trekking tours.

Over-the-air updates

The Performance Line is fully networked in the smart system and remains up-to-date even after purchase.

More details

Quiet drive unit

Ride almost silently with the Performance Line’s new, quiet transmission concept. You hardly hear your motor, and can enjoy nature all the more consciously on long bike rides.

Natural riding sensation

Get direct and powerful support in any riding situation – whether you pedal fast or slow. The Performance Line supports you with up to 75 Nm and is designed for a particularly natural riding experience. The sensitive adjustment to your riding style facilitates handling and increases riding safety.

Relaxing Auto mode

Make the ride on your eBike even more enjoyable with Auto mode. It automatically adjusts the support between Tour and Turbo depending on the riding situation, without you having to apply more power or switch between riding modes. This way you can fully focus on the road ahead and enjoy your ride to the fullest.

ABS Allroad

Safely on the road even in more challenging terrain: For sporty rides on trails off paved roads, ABS provides optimal, powerful-but-natural braking support. This way, even as an eMountainbike novice, you can ride carefree on gravel and loose surfaces.

Bosch eBike ABS is only available in the following countries: all countries of the European Union, United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway.

Robust drive

Trust the high-quality construction of the Performance Line. It’s robust and can cope with intensive use without additional maintenance. The durable drive unit handles challenges from weather or difficult surfaces at all times. This makes it particularly suitable for long trekking tours.

Customise your riding modes

You can fine-tune the Eco, Tour, Sport, Auto, Turbo and Cargo riding modes to give you more support or to use less power.

Here's how it works





eBike Lock with the smart system

Activating the eBike Lock function via the eBike Flow app lets you use your smartphone as a digital key. Because motor support can only be activated with your smartphone and the Bluetooth connection, your eBike holds no attraction for thieves.

New Even better protected with eBike Alarm

The eBike Alarm is the next step for even more security for your eBike. Made possible by the ConnectModule and in interaction with eBike Lock, it expands the locking of the drive unit with a comprehensive alarm function. When you switch off your eBike, the eBike Alarm is automatically activated and deactivated when you switch it back on. This means your eBike is optimally protected at all times - without you having to do anything.
