First, you fall in love with its multi-award-winning design, and then with its athletic features. The Charger models are like a six-pack cast in aluminium. A precisely-conceived geometry and 28” or 27.5” wheels guarantee the ultimate in riding comfort. The elevated chainstays allow versions with a long-lasting and low-maintenance belt drive. Bosch Performance drives reinforce your own muscle strength with speeds of up to 28mph. For that, you need short braking distances, which the hydraulic disk brakes deliver. This level of sportiness looks good on everyone. After all, it’s like it was made to fit.

Features: Style and even more speed. Equipped with the Bosch Performance Speed motor and the efficient Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear, you are always on the move in a sporty style – in the city, forest and the fields. The hydraulic Shimano Deore XT disc brakes ensure safety on fast rides up to 45 km/h. The light-intensive Supernova lighting system turns night into day.

Drive: New for 2017, the Bosch Performance Speed motor system can put out a whopping 60Nm of torque and a top assist speed of 28 mph.  The Performance Speed motor features a composite shell and has been recognized with the Red Dot Award for outstanding product design. The drive unit is equipped with an electronic control system with three sensors for force, cadence and speed, ensuring optimal coordination. It takes 1000 sensor measurements per second. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Battery: New for 2017, Bosch has unveiled a new dual-battery option, this setup allows you to run 1 or 2 batteries.  The Bosch dual battery capacity is a whopping 1000 Watt-hours, the most capacity available on a single bike at 50cycles.  Bosch has made it easier to predict your useful range with their online range calculator.They are linked by a smart Y-cable that not only allows for the synchronous use of the batteries to drive a single Bosch mid-motor, but also synchronous charging. The onboard computer manages all of the battery charging and discharging, so together the two batteries behave exactly like a single, larger battery.  Except for one thing - if you only want to carry one battery, you can simply leave the other one behind - no big deal.Thanks to an integrated locking system, the battery can be removed and re-attached just like any “plug & play” device and can be completely charged with the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. 

Weight 2.5kg each.

Display: The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times, it consists of a thumb controller and a larger console mounted at the middle of your handlebar. The console provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.
