How does it work?


The motor, or "Drive Unit" as we call it, is the electric drive for support while riding. At Bosch we believe that power comes from the center – which is why we only offer eBikes with mid-drive motors. Whether it's a cargo bike for everyday use or a mountain bike on the trail, the Bosch drive system provides support exactly when it's needed thanks to sophisticated sensor management. The start-up behavior ranges from controlled to sporty, different riding modes from Eco to Turbo are available. High-performance lithium-ion batteries known for their impressive design and efficiency deliver the necessary power. A Bosch eBike display on the handlebar completes the drive system. The Purion, Intuvia, Kiox, Nyon and SmartphoneHub displays show all key riding data such as speed, battery charge level, and range at a glance. 

The smart system combines motor, rechargeable battery, and display, and ensures a very personalized eBike experience through the perfect interaction of the components. Your eBike is now fully connected thanks to the new eBike Flow app and the LED Remote – and thus ready for the digital future.
