Be the first to review this product

All roads lead to Rome. All of the roads in the world, put together, would stretch 29,357,026 km. And that’s not even counting the tracks that are off the main roads. So to make sure you don’t miss out on a single centimetre of them, we've built the Homage. It combines the everyday qualities of a city bike with the athletic chassis of a mountainbike, providing boundless possibilities for use. The Control Technology and hydraulic disk brakes increase safety, especially at high speeds. The Homage is, after all, equipped with a high-torque Bosch Performance CX drive with up to 32 km/h of power. And with this much enjoyment, nobody will take the shortest road to Rome.

The Homage.
Boundaries only exist in your mind.

All roads lead to Rome. All of the roads in the world, put together, would stretch 29,357,026 km. And that’s not even counting the tracks that are off the main roads. So to make sure you don’t miss out on a single centimetre of them, we've built the Homage. It combines the everyday qualities of a city bike with the athletic chassis of a mountainbike, providing boundless possibilities for use. The Control Technology and hydraulic disk brakes increase safety, especially at high speeds. The Homage is, after all, equipped with a high-torque Bosch Performance CX drive with up to 32 km/h of power. And with this much enjoyment, nobody will take the shortest road to Rome.

The Homage is available in two models:

  • Homage Touring includes the lightweight and efficient Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailluer.
  • Homage Nuvinci features 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.
  • Homage GT Nuvinci has all of the features of the Nuvinci plus upgrades the tires to the Schwalbe SuperMoto X for maximum comfort and control on any terrain.
  • The Homage Rohloff includes a Rohloff 14-speed hub gear with enormous 520% ratio range.  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.

R&M Homage Video Review:

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which R&M holds their 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 Drive Unit

 

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 Power Pak 500

Bosch Powerpack 500

With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. With the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh carrier battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. Like all Bosch batteries, it can be removed or charged directly on the bike.

Bosch Intuvia Display

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

Master of all terrain.

In combination with the low step-through, the sporty chassis lends the Homage the very best in everyday qualities. The ultra-rigid frame ensures superb riding characteristics - even at high speeds.

None

Maintains a deep relationship with the road.

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

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic Shimano Deore disc brakes deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake discs allow the braking effect to be distributed most effectively. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance. 

 
 
 

A bright future.

Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to the LED headlamps from Supernova. Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness. They are operated via the Bosch Display, while the energy is supplied via the battery.

More than just thick trousers: thick tires.

When you go on a trip, you want to experience things. Those things don’t usually happen on well-travelled paths, but rather off the beaten track and away from the roads. That's why we have equipped the Homage GT models with wide, stable 27.5" rims and Schwalbe Moto-X Fat Tires. The wide contact surface and reduced air pressure offer outstanding comfort and prevent the bike from sinking into soft ground, allowing you to conquer any unknown territory with confidence.

None

Steal success from thieves.

With the ABUS Bordo 90 cm folding lock, the bike can be securely fastened to virtually anything. It locks simultaneously with the battery, which means you only need one key for your E-Bike.

None

Load up, set off.

Baskets, panniers and child seats can be secured in record time to the carrier thanks to the “snapit” system from racktime. With just a click, your payload can be changed quicker than a pit stop. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.

R&M Homage Options:

Air suspension upgrade

Maintains a deep relationship with the road.

Tackle unfamiliar roads with calm and comfort. The air suspension from Fox transforms the stoniest paths into smooth asphalt and ensures maximum chassis control. Depending on the terrain, the suspension fork and suspension element can be set at three levels (Climb, Trail and Descend mode). The rear suspension element can be adjusted by means of a remote control on the handlebar.
