Bosch eBike Systems is exhibiting at Intermot for the first time this year. The International Motorcycle, Scooter and Bicycle Fair, which takes place 3–7 October in Cologne, is focused this year on the trend toward eMobility. Bosch is displaying its eBike System’s motor, battery, and on-board computer control and display device components in Hall 5.2. Hall 5.2 is dedicated solely to eMotion, a topic that attracted more than 100,000 visitors to Intermot two years ago.
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.—Claus Fleischer, head of the Bosch eBike Systems product division

Highlights of the Bosch eBike system on display 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% 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 a new, quiet battery charger, 80% capacity is reached in two and a half hours.
Intuvia represents 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.
