Dual Battery Integration
You can upgrade the standard 625Wh battery to the DualBattery option of 1250Wh which will unlock the maximum range with fewer stops for charging. The DualBattery system is fully integrated into the frame which means it hardly affects the handling, leaving you to enjoy the sporty handling of the Homage.
Suspended Rear Carrier
Unique in its design, the suspended rear carrier that comes standard on the Homage will keep all your gear in one place while you tackle the roughest terrain.
Bosch supplies one of the most reliable and performant E-bike packages available for the Homage with a Bosch Performance Line CX (Gen 4) motor and on-board computer.
The Bosch Performance Line CX motor which is integrated into the bottom bracket of the bike, ensuring plenty of ground clearance and low centre of gravity. A Mid-Drive E-Bike provides a more enjoyable riding experience compared to a hub motor. It’s the difference between feeling like you’re riding a normal bike, as opposed to being pulled by horses.
E-bikes do not use a throttle accelerator like a traditional motorcycle. Instead the driving force is applied as you turn the pedals, contribute to a smooth application of the available power. The harder you push on those pedals, the more power your motor will put out to help you.
Sensors in the motor report to the control unit the power, speed and cadence so that the motor can apply the best power curve to support your riding.
However when you stop pedalling there is a minimal amount of friction due to Bosch’s consistent engineering improvements so you won’t be bogged down when you stop pedalling.
All Riese & Muller bikes come equipped with a walk assist function that enables riders to walk along with their bike at 6km/hr which is perfect if you have to push the loaded bike up a steep hill.
Maximum speed of assistance in Australia is 25km/hr.
The Performance Line CX motor provides up to 340% of pedal assistance accessed via 4 different modes of assistance ranging from 140-340%.
Rear suspension on the Charger4 means you’ll have perfect traction on any terrain, even at high speeds. It will also help you feel more comfortable on rough road conditions. Pairing this with powerful Magura hydraulic disc brakes means you’ll have no trouble navigating any situation you find yourself in.
Seeing in low light and night time conditions is handled by the Supernova M99 Mini Pro headlamp. The rear Supernova M99 Tail Light features a brake light to keep you safe in high traffic areas.
The display on a Riese & Muller Bosch E-Bike is the control centre, enabling the rider to select between 4 pedal assist modes. The Bosch Smart System allows for configuration of those modes.
The Homage can be configured with Bosch’ Intuvia100, Kiox 300, SmartphoneHub and Nyon hub.
The Intuvia Display gives the rider full control of their system as well as an overview at all times. Battery status, range, mileage totals, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed are all displayed on an easy to see screen.
