Performance Line is the most versatile drive system from Bosch. Whether you're exploring the countryside, commuting for work or enjoying a leisurely spin, this system offers the precise support you need when pedaling. Performance Line is offered in three variants.

Performance Line Cruise provides as much as 65 Nm of torque to a maximum speed of 32 km/h, with an impressively natural pedaling sensation, even on challenging uphill terrain.

Performance Line (32 km/h)

Sporty and natural  

With a sporty torque of 65 Nm and high performance, the Drive Unit provides the right support at the right moment, even in the mountains. The riding sensation remains natural with barely noticeable pedal resistance when switched off or at over 32 km/h. All of this and almost silent too - for maximum riding enjoyment.

Drive Unit

For all requirements and speeds up to 32 km/h.


The highlights

Sporty riding sensation
Naturally better: Efficient, versatile drive unit delivers dynamic acceleration and a familiar riding experience, with minimal pedal resistance.

Off to a good start  
More fun, reduced effort: Support from the motor is felt as soon as you step on the pedals, smoothing takeoffs, even at low cadences.

Robust to the core
Tough performer: Robust drive can withstand extreme loads, meeting the rigorous demands of even the most adventurous eMTB riders. 

Perfect interplay
Consistent: Multi-sensor concept processes information at lightning speeds to provide optimum interaction between the rider and the eBike.

Peaceful pedaling experience 
Sound of silence: Gearbox is optimized for noise reduction, resulting in one of the quietest drives in its class. 


Ready for any adventure
Plans may change: Five riding modes make every ride a unique experience. For mountain bike riders, the eMTB mode boosts acceleration in off-road environments.

Compact, lightweight design 
Less is more: The innovative drive concept reduces both weight and size. This not only offers eBikers more style, but also enables them to benefit from agile handling.
