press release

Stuttgart/Reutlingen, Germany – Bosch eBike Systems is exhibiting at Intermot for the first time this year. The International Motorcycle, Scooter and Bicycle Fair, which takes place from October 3 to 7 in Cologne, is focused this year on the trend toward eMobility, consisting in the Bosch eBike System’s case of the components motor, battery, and on-board computer control and display device, and on show in Hall 5.2 at Booth D-035/C-032. Hall 5.2 is dedicated solely to eMotion, a topic that attracted over 100,000 visitors to Intermot two years ago.

“Electromobility moves and motivates people in many different ways,” says Claus Fleischer, head of the Bosch eBike Systems product division, “and that goes for us as a company too. Mobility has, after all, always been a core issue at Bosch. In our opinion, eMobility for two-wheelers has a major contribution to make toward the further development of mobility that is easy on the environment and on resources. As a technology company we are in the position to contribute our know-how toward the development and use of further electric propulsion systems.”

Come and see current highlights
The eBike system that Bosch is presenting at its booth is state-of-the-art. Its highlights are the Intuvia on-board computer and the 400 Wh PowerPack 400 battery. The PowerPack 400 weighs 2.6 kg, making it slightly heavier than the PowerPack 300, but just as compact with an up to 30 percent longer range. It is available fixed either to the frame or to the rear carrier and is fully charged in three and a half hours at most. Using the new, quiet battery charger, 80 percent capacity is reached in two and a half hours.

Intuvia is the next generation of eBike on-board computer controls. As the name indicates, the “ignition key” to Bosch eBike electric propulsion is intuitive to use and gives the user easy access to a range of information and functions. Using the Intuvia control unit, which is attached separately to the handlebar, the eBiker can select any of five assistance modes – Eco, Tour, Sport, Turbo, Off – or use the Bosch eBike System’s newly available pushing aid mode. Intuvia can be tried out on the handlebars on show at the booth. Information about the entire Bosch system is of course also available at the Intermot booth.

Visitors to the trade show booth can find out for themselves just what “epowered by Bosch” feels like on a bike. Step onto the demo bike and you will feel both the wind in your face and the power that a Bosch eBike system generates. The drive system’s comfort, sportiness, and optimal coordination round off the experience.

About Bosch eBike Systems
A new generation of bikes is taking town and country by storm and is already a part of eve-ryday life. eBikes are a modern means of transport for modern people: people in a hurry and people who prefer to take it easy, the fit and the comfort lovers, commuters and pleasure cyclists and, of course, young and old. The tailwind of technology-leading eBikes made by what are already more than 50 leading brands in Europe is powered by components that Bosch is developing to perfection. The Bosch portfolio ranges from the highly efficient drive unit (motor and gearbox) and high-quality batteries to a smart on-board and cycle computer that can be used intuitively. Perfect coordination of components holds the key to typical Bosch performance in terms of both comfort and efficiency. Like other Bosch products, the eBike systems benefit from the Bosch Group’s technology and production know-how. From conception and engineering to manufacturing, marketing and after-sales service, Bosch eBike Systems constantly set new standards for the eBike industry. The Bosch Group’s experience in the areas of electric motors, sensor technology, displays and lithium-ion batteries ensures that Bosch eBike systems use technology that is invented for life and that eBike users have their fun.
