The Details

With a comfortable geometry and front suspension fork, 500Wh battery and a host of city ready accessories, the Motus is perfect for city riding or weekend trekking.

The Motus features a lightweight and rugged frame constructed of 6061 aluminium, with a low step geometry which makes mounting and unmounting a breeze. The comfortable saddle and Comfort XLC bars ensure a comfortable ride, whilst front suspension forks with 56mm of travel smooth out the rougher terrain. Perfect for urban cycling or a weekend away with some light off-roading.

The Bosch Active+ motor provides seamless assistance with a natural ride feel, offering support of up to 25km/h. There are 4 modes for you to choose from easily controlled via the Bosch Intuvia display, ranging from Eco to Turbo and everything inbetween to ensure that you have the ride assistance to suit you. And with a 500wh battery to boot, you've got the means to go all day long.

The Motus GT is perfect for the city, not least because of the Shimano Nexus drivetrain. Utilising a sealed internal geared hub, the Nexus provides you 7 speeds with the ability to change gear even when stationary, perfect for dealing with morning traffic. Hydraulic disc brakes are provided courtesy of Tektro, allowing you to ride with full confidence in all conditions. The Motus comes with a host of city ready accessories out the box, too. A rear wheel lock provides extra security when hopping between shops, particularly when using the kickstand. Integrated lighting provides visibility after dark without the hassle of charging, and there is even a rear rack for all your luggage needs.

  • Alloy rear carrier
