Bosch Electric Bike Mid-drive Motors

Bosch of Germany have developed a range of electric bike motors and celebrate 10-years of production in 2019. 

Dyson Bikes offer Bosch powered ebikes by Orbea and Yuba.

Expand your Life

We are constantly on the move. Whether we are commuting to work, going on a shopping trip, cruising through the city or going on holiday. Mobility is the pulse of the city – and the eBike has developed to facilitate urban and sustainable mobility in recent years. However, in addition to the practical use, it also represents much more: the pure joy of discovery and experiences. Experience your city on the move, like never before.

Bosch Mid-Drive System Range

Bosch offer five different motors from the Active Line to the eMTB focused Performance Line CX, read on to learn more.

Active Line

Whether you need to get to work in the morning or to a restaurant in the evening: Active Line brings the fun back to urban mobility - even in rush hour. Its controlled acceleration with barely detectable pedal resistance at over 25 km/h or when switched off turns every trip into an experience and an elegant statement.

Active Line Plus

The easy way to gather new experiences: Active Line Plus brings mobility to your everyday life, lets you discover the city and extends your options for spontaneous excursions.

 

The quiet, small and powerful drive unit offers a major advantage in riding enjoyment. The lightweight, compact unit can be integrated perfectly in the frame of your electric bike. No disturbing extraneous noises, barely perceptible pedal resistance over 25 km/h - new experiences and discoveries await you.

Cargo Line

From making deliveries, collecting the kids from kindergarten to doing the shopping - the new Cargo Line, which is designed specially for cargo electric bikes, makes transport easy. Whether laden or unladen, the efficient Cargo drive unit provides support up to 25 km/h or, as a speed variant and enables load-controlled acceleration, even when starting off. Ideal for longer distances: the Cargo Speed version, which unleashes its power in combination with DualBattery, even at low cadences.

Performance Line

Whether trekking, all-mountain riding or commuting: The sporty Performance Line is the perfect choice for ambitious eBikers.

 

The finely balanced, high-performance system with a maximum torque of 63 Nm transforms eBikers into explorers and adventurers and provides the required power at any moment. Look forward to even more fun in the saddle – up to 25 km/h with the Performance Cruise drive unit.

Performance Line CX

No path too steep, no challenge too great: the new Performance Line CX is made for anyone for whom the trail is a second home. The most powerful drive from Bosch for ambitious riders is particularly lightweight, compact and at the same time extremely powerful and efficient. eMTB mode will always give you the power you need at precisely the right moment. The Performance Line CX accelerates extremely powerfully, responds without delay and features convincing agile handling and even more control. With up to 340% of perfectly delivered support, it pushes the joy of eMountain biking to the next level.

 

Does Bosch produce its own eBikes?

Bosch does not manufacture a complete Electric Bike. As a provider of eBike systems, we work together with renowned bicycle manufacturers that develop Pedelecs. More than 70 well-known bicycle brands globally and over 20 brands in Australia already use eBike systems with the "epowered by Bosch" quality seal.

Bosch - News

For over a decade, the electric tailwind "epowered by Bosch" has put a smile on eBikers' faces. Bosch eBike Systems was founded in 2009 and since then has been developing products that enable a unique driving experience and make sustainable mobility even more convenient and safer. Thus, the model year 2020 has a lot to offer as well.

Evolution of the Performance Line CX

No route is too steep, no challenge is too big: With the new Performance Line CX in model year 2020, Bosch eBike Systems is launching a drive system for eMTB use that is light and compact but at the same time extremely powerful and efficient. The most powerful electric bike Drive Unit from Bosch convinces even the most demanding of riders with up to 340 percent support. The motor accelerates extremely powerfully, reacts to the rider’s pedal pressure without deceleration and provides dynamic handling from the first pedal stroke. For eMountain bikers this means even more agility and control over the e-bike – and increased riding enjoyment on the trails.

Clever connected biking experience with the SmartphoneHub

The new SmartphoneHub from Bosch eBike Systems connects the eBiker with the online world by means of the smartphone and the COBI.Bike app. The smart control centre offers a wide range of useful functions - from navigation, music control, fitness tracking and making calls to the connection to other services and apps, such as Strava or komoot. An integrated display that supplies the eBiker with the most important riding data, even without the smartphone, ensures sufficient flexibility while on the road.  

 

 

Kiox - connectivity for the next model year

Kiox, the compact colour display for sporty electric bike riders, uses the eBike Connect smartphone app to connect eBikers with the digital world. As a result, riding and fitness data recorded by Kiox can be transferred to the eBike Connect online portal via the app. After the ride, activities can be conveniently evaluated using the smartphone or computer. The data is automatically synchronised between Kiox and the app via Bluetooth, and software updates can be downloaded to the on-board computer wirelessly. 

New software protects against tuning

Tuning pedelecs is a risky business. Many people don't realise that using tuned eBikes on public roads may not only lead to technical problems and safety-related issues, but can also result in serious legal consequences. Awareness and prevention are important. Technological measures will also be taken to make manipulation more difficult in the future. For model year 2020, Bosch eBike Systems is launching software that recognises eBike tuning and consequently reduces support. 

Lock – a smart complement to the mechanical lock

According to police crime statistics about 800 bicycles are stolen in Germany every day. This is particularly annoying when the electric bike in question is a costly eBike. That makes it all the more important to take appropriate protective measures. A mechanical lock is indispensable. The new premium Lock function from Bosch eBike Systems now offers pedelec riders additional digital protection: The function enables motor support to be blocked by removing the on-board computer Kiox.

eSuspension – fully integrated electronic suspension

Bosch eBike Systems has teamed up with FOX to offer eMountain bikers an electronically controllable suspension designed for maximum performance on the trail. FOX E-Live Valve can be easily controlled via the Kiox on-board computer. Using a sophisticated system of sensors, the E-Live Valve determines the conditions of the terrain 1,000 times per second and adjusts the electric bike fork and rear shock accordingly within fractions of a second. This means that the eMountain biker can always be sure of the ideal suspension setting and can concentrate fully on the trail.
