All roads lead to Rome. All of the roads in the world put together, would stretch 29,357,026 km. And that’s not even counting the tracks that are off the main roads. So to make sure you don’t miss out on a single centimetre of them, we've built the Homage. It combines the everyday qualities of a city bike with the athletic chassis of a mountain bike, providing boundless possibilities for use. The Control Technology and hydraulic disc brakes increase safety, especially at high speeds. The Homage is, after all, equipped with a high-torque Bosch Performance drive with up to 28mph. And with this much enjoyment, nobody will take the shortest road to Rome.
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.
