Bosch Foreshadows The Future Of eBike Design With A 10th Anniversary Concept

Jul 8, 2020

While electric bicycles have become increasingly commonplace, the landscape of today is vastly different than that of a decade ago. One outfit that was an early investor into this rapidly emerging space was Bosch, which is now celebrating the tenth anniversary of the bar-raising Bosch drive system — an item that has been adopted by countless eBike makers the world over — via the release of a new concept known as the “eBike Design Vision.”

The crux of the concept was to seamlessly integrate electric components into the two-wheelers overall design, foreshadowing what the German multinational firm believes represents the future of eBike 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 onboard computer, integrated color display, internally-routed cables throughout, and an integrated front luggage rack that conceals the concept’s ABS module.
