A little bit below about the brands we sell

Yamaha PW-SE

The PWseries SE inherits all the popular features of the first-generation PWseries and further enhances the pleasure it provides, and it is now Yamaha's new standard model. A compact and lightweight drive unit designed for riding conditions ranging from standard city streets to more challenging, sporty routes, it enables every rider to enjoy an electric assist experience which is powerful yet at the same time smooth and easy to handle. The maximum cadence at which the unit assists your riding performance has been raised from 100 rpm to 110 rpm*.

Yamaha PW-SE

A large liquid crystal display designed for a wide range of uses, from city to trail riding. It features a simplified and easily operable large display, with speed and battery capacity functions. High importance has been placed on visibility while riding in severe environmental conditions. Support mode can be changed at the press of a button as you ride.

Compact & Lightweight

Losing 380g changes the ride.
Introducing a light weight, compact drive unit.


Making the drive unit more compact, means not simply reducing the overall weight of the machine, but also refraining from interfering with the ideal frame design.
Yamaha thoroughly lightened the design by 380g by adopting a hollow axle shaft, using a thinner driven gear, and reducing the case thickness, while simultaneously reducing volume by nearly 13%. We also adopted the 128mm ISIS interface BB Axle commonly used in MTB in response to expectations for a more authentic ride.

Yamaha PW-X

The large 2.8 inch color dot matrix display provides clear read-outs and control of the connectivity functions. Several display screens are available for different modes. A newly-designed ergonomic remote switch improves ease of operation. By connecting your smartphone with the display you can enjoy extended features via the app. Display C takes enjoyment of your riding lifestyle to a new level.

Multi Switch

With a maximum torque of 75 Nm, the Performance Line CX is the ideal drive for ambitious and demanding eBikers. In eMTB mode, you always receive the required power – from Tour to Turbo. Up to 300% of perfectly delivered support, incredible dynamism and unique grip provide the best possible support on all terrains, as well as improved start-up behaviour. The progressive motor support automatically adapts to the individual's riding style, so there is no need to change support modes in eMTB mode.

Bosch Performance CX

You always have everything at hand with the convenient Intuvia. The display can be read easily in any condition and gives all important information. The on-board computer is controlled intuitively via the separate operating unit.

The Active Line is the drive for anyone who places great value on an elegant appearance. Due to its compact size, the Drive Unit can be integrated optimally into the bicycle frame. Its reduced weight and low centre of gravity provide for safe handling. Without any disturbing extraneous noises, you can experience pure riding enjoyment with gentle support up to 25 km/h. And anyone who wants to go faster will benefit from minimal pedal resistance above 25 km/h. The Active Line is also available with a backpedal function.

Bosch Active Line Plus

Design meets functionality: Purion is the minimalist on-board computer for everyone wishing to have a neat look on the handle bar, be it for use in the city or the countryside.

Five different riding modes give you the individually correct support in every situation.
