PERFORMANCE LINE

Double the Fun

Performance Line is the most versatile drive system from Bosch. Whether you're on a sporty ride through the countryside, commuting to work or on a leisure ride, it always gives you support precisely when you need it. It is available in three variants. 

The Performance Line Drive Unit provides support with up to 65 Nm of torque up to a maximum of 32km/h and offers an impressively natural and sporty riding sensation. Maximum riding enjoyment is guaranteed, even on mountainous terrain. 

The new Performance Line Sport ensures riding enjoyment, particularly during athletic riding at high cadences. The drive weighs only 7 lbs. and accelerates smoothly over 32km/h, with a maximum speed of 45km/h – for care-free riding and that unique Bosch riding sensation.

You can reach high speeds even faster and cover long distances with ease with the Performance Line Speed Drive Unit. It provides support for speed eBikes up to 45km/h and with the model year 2021 software update, eBike riders can look forward to even faster daily journeys with a maximum torque of 85 Nm.
