Bosch is already well-known for its electric bike motors and related technologies. Now, the German company has unveiled a concept “e-Bike Design Vision”, created to show how smoothly those products could be incorporated into one vehicle.
The crux of the concept “e-Bike Design Vision” be to seamlessly integrate electric components into the two-wheelers overall design, foreshadowing what the German multinational firm believes represents the future of e-Bike design. As such, the concept boasts a carbon-fiber frame with integrated suspension front and aft, with the drive system neatly integrated into the frame and handlebars and a Powertube 625 battery housed the down-tube. The battery cover also extends down to partially cover the drive unit, allowing for an overall more cohesive appearance. There’s also LED bike lights and disc brakes front and back, a Nyon on-board computer, integrated colour display, internally-routed cables throughout, and an integrated front luggage rack that conceals the concept’s ABS module.
Called the e-Bike Design Vision, the bicycle is described as an urban sports cruiser, made for “city adventures, commuter trips and off-road trails.” This versatility is made possible by both front and rear suspension, with the latter utilizing a shock absorber built directly into the top tube. The release of the new e-bike concept was timed to coincide with the 10th anniversary of Bosch’s first drive system for electric bikes.
