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.

Features: Whether on long tours or in the city, with the lightweight and efficient Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear, riding will be pure pleasure wherever you go. Especially on the HS model with up to 28mph of assistance from the Bosch Performance Speed motor. The Control Technology with full suspension, the hydraulic Magura MT4 disc brakes and the super-bright IQ-X LED headlamps from Busch & Müller ensure maximum safety.

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:  The battery is impressively easy to use. With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. Bosch has made it easier to predict your useful range with their online range calculator. 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.

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. Optional Nyon Display*
