The Homage.
For the city. For the mountains. For everyone.

Life in the city is constantly moving. The Homage is designed to be one of the frontrunners in total relaxation. Thanks to the ingenious frame geometry, you can quickly get on your bike whenever you want. The optimised, suspended swing arm provides an exceptionally dynamic riding experience that only an E-Bike with perfectly tuned full suspension can offer. The design of the Homage is particularly clear-cut, with its striking lines and the integrated battery. Equipped with Riese & Müller's Control Technology, the Homage wins you over with outstanding riding comfort and maximum safety in any situation. And for those who want to go far away or high up, the DualBattery option offers completely new goals and undreamt-of possibilities.

The Homage is available in three models:

  • Homage GT Touring includes the lightweight and efficient Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailluer.
  • Homage GT Vario features a Gates Carbon Belt, and the comfortable, continuous NuVinci hub gear ensuring you are always on the move in the perfect gear. The gears are also 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 derailluer and cassette configuration.  Read more about the Nuvinci hub system here.
  • The Homage GX Rohloff includes a Gates Carbon Belt and a Rohloff eShift 14-speed hub gear with enormous 520% ratio range and Rock Razor tires.  Choose this option for a wide gear range, to be able to shift to any gear at any time and to avoid the maintenance and repair/replacement requirements found with a standard derailluer and cassette configuration.

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 500 Wh PowerTube

The Bosch PowerTube battery with its 500-Wh energy reserve sets the standard for design and function. Fully integrated in the frame, it remains almost invisible and perfectly protected at all times. The high-quality lithium-ion battery can be charged directly on the bike.

When unlocked, it automatically pops a few centimetres out of the frame, so that it can be removed quickly and easily for external charging with the Bosch charger at any normal socket as well.

Optional: Bosch DualBattery 1,000 Wh

The DualBattery option with a 500 Wh PowerTube integrated in the frame and a 500 Wh frame battery mounted on it combines the best of both worlds. Together the batteries achieve 1,000 Wh. The load on the batteries is minimised by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increases 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.

 

None

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.

Power from within.

The concentrated power of the 500 Wh battery is so perfectly integrated that it is easy to miss at first glance. However, once located it is very easy to remove: just lift upwards in a single movement – or simply charge it directly on the bike. The integration into the frame protects the battery from moisture and stone chips while riding.

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.

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.

 

 Rack

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.
