The Drive Unit

Harmoniously balanced or assertively powerful? Natural is what's important. The Bosch riding sensation creates a unique eBike experience. Three sensors measure pedaling power, cadence, and speed more than 1000 times per second. This enables the rider and the eBike to interact with each other organically.

The powerhouse

The arrangement of the gear system provides for optimal integration of the Drive Unit design and for more ground clearance.

Compact and lightweight

The Drive Unit's small size means that it weighs less, features a shorter pedal distance, and is more ergonomic.

Exceptional design

In addition to the premium Platinum version, our ergonomic eBike system, recognized with the Red Dot Award for outstanding product design, is now available in a color-inversed version with black as the main color.
