This E-Bike wants to go touring. Speeding on the flat or climbing hills. In the mountains. In the city. Either way, it's got to be sporty. The bike comes in three frame heights and with 27.5” wheels to ensure optimum handling for any body height. Pedal assistance of up to 300% is provided by the powerful Bosch Performance drive, which transfers the power perfectly to the road through sophisticated sensor technology. All with the best traction thanks to Control Technology with full suspension. Go your own way. Your Delite will love you for it.

The R&M Delite is available in three models: GT Touring, GT Nuvinci & GX Rohloff.  

Delite GT Vario Model

  • The Nuvinci Model includes a comfortable, continuous Enviolo hub gear, and a Gates belt drive so you are always in the perfect gear: no gaps between shifts, virtually maintenance- and wear-free.  Choose this option to be able to shift to any gear at any time and to avoid the maintenance and repair/replacement requirements found with a standard chain, derailluer and cassette configuration.  
Delite GT Touring
  • The GT Touring Model features a Sporty Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear: highly effective, proven shift technology at a lower price than a hub and belt.
Delite GX Rohloff Model
  • The GX Rohloff model uses an extremely robust electronic Rohloff 14-speed hub gear.  It features an enormous ratio range of up to 520% performance and extremely low maintenance requirements. Static shifting is also possible.  The tires are upgraded to Schwalbe Rock Razor 60-584 for more traction and performance
  • Choose this option to be able to shift to any gear at any time and still experience the same range of gears you would find with a standard derailleur.  Rohloff hubs are well known for their durability and reliability, and can save you money in the long run as you won't have to replace the cassette, derailleur, shifters and chain like a traditional gear system.  They are virtually maintenance free, have equally spaced gear ratios, change gears immediately, and have many other benefits to justify your investment.  You also receive upgraded tires and an awesome eBike specific light, making it a great value!

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which we hold our E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That’s why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Bosch PowerPack 500 frame battery

The powerful lithium-ion battery attached to the frame has an energy reserve of 500 Wh. High reliability and a service life of 800 to 1,000 charging cycles make it a strong companion over hill and dale. It can be charged directly on the E-Bike or removed from the frame in a single step. It takes 4.5 hours to charge from a fully discharged state. So with the PowerPack 500 you are perfectly equipped for any trip.

Bosch DualBattery 1,000 Wh

For long tours with lots of luggage or routes with considerable height differences, the DualBattery remains the benchmark. Riders using their E-Bike to commute to work also have to charge their bike less often. The load on the two frame batteries is minimised by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increasing the service life. Using the included Bosch Standard charger, both batteries can be charged directly on the bike or at any normal socket once removed. Both can even be charged together on the bike. The charging time for a single battery from a fully discharged state is only 4.5 hours. Charging them on the bike together, both batteries are fully operational again after 9 hours. It is also possible to use just one battery.

Bosch Performance CX motor

The Performance CX is the most powerful Bosch E-Bike motor ever – with pedal assistance of up to 300 %, a maximum torque of 75 Nm, very sporty start-up characteristics and pedalling rate assistance up to 120 rpm. With “Direct Flow” you have a powerful push on the back wheel from speeds of just 20 rpm. Whether it be uphill or on the flat, this acceleration will inspire you. Another highlight in the new Performance CX motor is the eMTB mode, which replaces the previous Sport mode (this is displayed as Sport mode on the Intuvia Display). Here, the progressive motor assistance automatically adapts to the individual riding style regardless of pedal pressure. This ensures optimum assistance at all times, which really pays off on climbs.

Bosch Display Options

Bosch Kiox Display

With the Bosch Kiox display, the E-Bike turns into the ultimate sparring partner for performance-driven riders. Various training modes and perfect handling, with special features such as tactile pressure points on the control unit, help you to continuously step up your performance. It is even possible to pair it with heart rate monitors via Bluetooth. The display made from scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass is easy to read in intense sunlight, while the magnetic holder ensures simple handling. The ultra-modern Kiox is small, robust, compact and ready for the E-Bike future.

Bosch Intuvia Display

The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times. It provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. On our automatic E-Bike models, the automatic version of the display also offers an option for controlling the pedal frequency. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.




Great safety, even at high speeds.

Only an E-Bike with true full suspension consistently keeps ground contact even on poor roads – and keeps you in full control. The active rear wheel swing arm, optimised front wheel suspension and co-sprung luggage carrier form the core of the Control Technology. They ensure better road holding, sportier riding behaviour and safety even at high speeds and in tricky situations. Vibrations and hard knocks like those experienced on cobbles or kerbs are simply smoothed out. Your luggage is also protected by the frame-mounted, sprung luggage carrier.



Because not every adventure starts at your doorstep.

The DualBattery Technology perfected by Riese & Müller ensures twice the range or far higher climbs, fewer charging breaks and longer-lasting riding pleasure. The batteries are so cleverly positioned that the extra weight has no noticeable impact on riding behaviour – and yet both are easy to remove. With the 1,000 Wh now available, completely new destinations can be reached and you no longer have to worry about your range in your daily routine.


Simple. Indestructible.

Anyone riding an E-Bike with the Gates CDX carbon belt drive is at peace. And in two ways: because on the one hand the innovative drive offers a wonderfully smooth ride and great riding comfort. While at the same time being unbelievably low-maintenance and performing its tasks with the utmost reliability. The carbon belt drive provides a new, carefree riding experience – for every need and every intent.



Folding lock

Always on high alert.

This lock knows all about quiet and loud noises: the Abus Bordo Alarm 6000A is activated as soon as you use it to secure your E-Bike. Move the bike only slightly and you'll hear a short, quiet sound. Attempt to steal it, and you'll trigger a 100 db alarm. Enough to frighten off any would-be thief. Naturally, this folding lock is also extremely strong and robust – and it closes with the same key as the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike.


With no holder, there’s no holding back.

The E-Bike features two water bottles, but without a single holder attached. This technical feat is revolutionary. And it even comes standard on the GT and GX models. The front cover plate of the frame is equippe with two plastic pegs on each side, both left and right, specially designed for direct mounting of the cageless water bottles from Fabric. It doesn’t get any easier than this when it comes to keeping two bottles within perfect reach during a ride. There are no two bottles easier to keep within perfect reach.


Load up, set off.

Baskets and panniers can be attached to the carrier with just one click using the MIK system from Basil. This extraordinarily stable system allows you to quickly swap bicycle accessories fitted with a MIK adapter plate. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.

Super Nova M99 Mini

Proven vision.

No more sudden surprises with the Supernova M99 Mini front light. An impressive 1,250 lumens illuminate the road in a way that previously only car headlamps could manage. And even the 600-lumen dipped beam is far brighter than most conventional E-Bike headlamps. On all 28 mph models and even all 16 mph models, the brake light is integrated in the rear light to ensure that you are even safer on busy roads.
