Stuttgart/Reutlingen – Sporty rides in the mountains, active adventures through woodlands and meadows or a quick way to get to the office: the new Performance Line that Bosch eBike Systems is presenting for model year 2020, is the most versatile drive system in the portfolio. The efficient drive unit supports eBikers at just the right moment – up to 25 km/h with the Drive Unit Performance Cruise or up to 45 km/h with the Speed model. The drive offers a convincingly natural sporty riding sensation and accelerates dynamically and powerfully, even at low cadences. Designed for recreational athletes, trekking and touring riders as well as commuters - and for even more riding enjoyment over long distances.

Drive Unit Performance Cruise: active and dynamic trips through the mountains

With a maximum torque of 65 Nm and up to 300% support, the drive unit provides sufficient power for sporty riding, even in mountainous terrain. The dynamic acceleration supports the eBiker powerfully from the moment his/her foot first turns the pedal. The riding sensation always remains natural; in off-mode and over 25 km/h, pedal resistance is barely noticeable and the eBike runs like a conventional bike. The new drive concept makes the Performance Line Cruise light, compact and one of the quietest drives in its class. At the same time, the drive unit is extremely robust and ideally suited for the demands of trekking or eMTB use. Used on eMountainbikes, eMTB mode complements the Performance Line on sporty rides: the progressive motor support automatically adapts to the individual's riding style without having to change riding modes.

Drive Unit Performance Speed: the fast and nimble way to beat rush hour traffic

The Performance Line Speed supports S-pedelecs up to 45 km/h. The powerful motor has a maximum torque of 75 Nm and, weighing in at 2.9 kilograms, is compact and lightweight. This reduces the total weight of the pedelec and enables agile handling. High speeds are easily achieved thanks to powerful motor support of up to 340%. The faster you travel; the greater the support from the drive. This way, even long distances can be covered quickly and comfortably. This makes the Performance Line Speed the ideal drive for commuters, offering a relaxed and stress-free way to get to work.
