On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its first electric bike motor system, Bosch has unveiled its eBike Design Vision. The concept bike demonstrates the integration of its components in a way that provides the impetus for the eBike design of the future.
The bike is touted as an urban sports vehicle for adventure lovers, commuter trips, and those who like to ride off-road. It has a carbon frame with a fully integrated front and rear suspension. The frame hides various Bosch components, in particular, the Performance Line CX drive unit, which is installed next to the lower shaft console, a removable PowerTube 625 lithium-ion battery, and the eBike ABS brake system hides behind the front trunk. Besides, there is a new Nyon on-board computer embedded in the handlebar, plus the remote control for the computer.
Under it is the always-on LED light, which complements the taillight, also built into the frame. Cooling channels on the side of the bottom pipe prevent overheating of the power plant. The cables and hydraulic hoses of the brake system run inside the cockpit structure – so that nothing detracts from the design and the shape. It is claimed that the electric bike will stand out from normal two-wheelers with a completely unique design language.
“Our aim in developing the eBike Design Vision is to show what is already possible today when it comes to functional design integration and investigates where the journey might take us in the future,” says Claus Fleischer, CEO of Bosch eBike Systems.
Bosch did not provide technical details; there is no information on whether this concept will ever be implemented.
