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 Drive Unit provides support with a torque of up to 65 Nm and a maximum speed of 25 km/h and offers a naturally sporty riding sensation. It enables riders to get the most out of outings, even in mountainous terrain. The Performance Speed Drive Unit enables high speeds to be reached even faster, while long distances can be covered with ease. It supports S-Pedelecs up to 45 km/h and will speed riders on their way with a torque of 85 Nm from model year 2021 onwards.

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 (25 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. The Performance Speed Drive Unit weighs in at just 2.9 kg. 

New More power for long distances 
The faster way to the destination: From model year 2021 onwards, the powerful motor of the Performance Line Speed Drive Unit provides support with a maximum torque of 85 Nm and thus provides even more thrust.
