For limitless freedom

PERFORMANCE LINE

Double the Fun

The Performance Line is the most versatile drive system from Bosch. Whether you're on a sporty jaunt through the countryside, commuting to work or cruising on a leisurely outing, it always delivers the right support at the right moment. There are two variants. The Performance Cruise Drive Unit provides support with a torque of up to 65 Nm and a maximum speed of 32 km/h and offers a naturally sporty riding sensation. It enables riders to get the most out of outings, even in mountainous terrain. 

The highlights

Sporty riding sensation
What really matters: The efficient and versatile drive provides dynamic acceleration and guarantees an authentic riding sensation with minimal pedal resistance, even without support. 

Off to a good start  
More fun, less effort: The drive delivers dynamic and sporty acceleration even at low cadences, offering powerful support as soon as you step on the pedals.

Robust to the core
Unrivalled resilience: The robust Drive Unit can cope with heavy loads and meets the highest demands in terms of trekking or eMTB use. 

Perfect interplay
A cohesive riding experience: The multi-sensor concept and fast information processing ensure optimum interaction between riders and their eBikes.

Quiet enjoyment 
This is what riding enjoyment sounds like: The innovative noise-optimised gearbox makes the Performance Line (32 km/h) one of the quietest drives in its class. 

Ready for any adventure
Whatever you're planning: Five riding modes make every trip a pleasure. 
There is a separate eMTB mode for eMountain bikes, also providing acceleration for off-road adventures. 

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.
