We rave about our Motus range for so many reasons; it’s versatility, style, high-quality, durability. We want to focus on the tech. If you’re investing in an electric bike, you want to know you’re getting the best possible ride you can. With the Motus range it’s easy, we use a Bosch motor. Bosch are market leaders in ebike systems, plus widely recognised and trusted across the UK in other areas of tech and electronics so you know you’re getting the best from your bike. Let’s delve a little deeper!
The drive unit
The Bosch Active Line Plus Motor offers a more agile and dynamic source of power which is great for that little extra boost up steep hills or tracks. The motor is mounted centrally to optimise the bikes overall weight distribution and adjusts seamlessly to your riding style to provide the necessary power as and when you need it. Both Active Line motors are ideal for city riding, surfaced roads and cycle paths making the Motus very comfortable with your everyday ride.The Active Line Plus motor makes its first appearance on a Raleigh electric bike offering an almost completely noise free experience and a higher level of pedal rate detection to improve cycling efficiency so you can get the maximum enjoyment out of your journeys.
The lightweight yet sturdy lithium ion powerpack 400WH battery on the Motus Tour and Grand Tour delivers long lasting and reliable performance which allows you to ride for up to an impressive 110 miles on a single charge depending on mode selected, rider weight and surface conditions. The battery itself can be easily removed and can also be rapidly charged to 50% in under four hours using the compact charger. The balance and weight distribution have been optimised due to the careful positioning of the battery allowing the ride to be as smooth as possible.
Placed in the centre of the handlebars, this refined and sophisticated Bosch Intuvia display allows you to easily view the vital information while the control unit is placed safely on the left handlebar effortless navigation through the bikes features with maximum clarity. This display features a handy gear shift indicator which lets you know the correct gear to be in at all times as well as optimising the battery consumption to ensure your range is increased.
