R&M Multicharger Cargo eBike (2019)

Be the first to review this product

What are you taking today? The two little ones to nursery? Tomorrow the big shop and at the weekend all the camping equipment for a few days at the lake. This much cargo space sounds like an E-Cargo bike – but the Multicharger is a cargo-optimised E-Bike in an off-road style and, as a GX model, with all-terrain off-road equipment. Its carefully designed cargo equipment options make it the ideal touring, family or transport E-Bike. And yet it is just as long as the Charger. This not only saves space, but also makes the Multicharger safe and agile to handle – whether you ride a lot, carry a lot of cargo or both.

The Multicharger.
Ride all the time and take everything with you.

What are you taking today? The two little ones to nursery? Tomorrow the big shop and at the weekend all the camping equipment for a few days at the lake. This much cargo space sounds like an E-Cargo bike – but the Multicharger is a cargo-optimised E-Bike in an off-road style and, as a GX model, with all-terrain off-road equipment. Its carefully designed cargo equipment options make it the ideal touring, family or transport E-Bike. And yet it is just as long as the Charger. This not only saves space, but also makes the Multicharger safe and agile to handle – whether you ride a lot, carry a lot of cargo or both.

The Multicharger is available in three models, plus a "Mixte" version here with a lower cross bar.

  • Multicharger Light includes the lightweight and efficient Shimano Deore 10-speed derailluer.
  • Multicharger Vario features a ThudBuster Suspension Seatpost, 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 Multicarhger GX Touring features a ThudBuster Suspension Seatpost, includes the Shimano Deore XT 11 speed derailluer and fat, all-terrain tires.

Drive

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 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 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 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 Purion Display

With the Purion, you are guaranteed to never lose sight of things. Its sleek design combines all relevant information on one small, easy-to-read display. While your hands stay firmly on the handlebars, you can navigate through all the functions with your thumb. The Purion is highly efficient, lightweight and trimmed down to the essentials.

One E-Bike. Room for two – or three.

There is a new way to transport two small children by bike: the Multicharger. When designing the E-Bike and its transport capabilities, particular attention was paid to the smallest passengers. The long carrier has enough space for two child seats. And older ones can ride along too: the optional passenger kit with comfortable foam seat, handles and footrests allows another passenger to take a seat. The optimum position of the pillion gives the Multicharger its agile riding behaviour and safe road holding.

The cargo bike of E-Bikes.

The Multicharger has a 64.5 cm long carrier and an optional luggage space. These large, fixed, 33-litre panniers make it as easy and handy to transport shopping and parcels as it is to carry everyday items such as laptops, keys, bottles and a spare battery. The shape and size of the bags make optimum use of the Multicharger's cargo area. Excluding the luggage space, there is room for two standard bicycle bags on each side of the carrier. The standard front carrier offers additional transport space for luggage or smaller purchases.

Safe riding pleasure.

Force equals mass times acceleration. But anyone riding a fully loaded Multicharger for the first time might wonder whether this law of physics needs to be rewritten. Despite its generous loading volume, the Multicharger retains its extreme agility and manoeuvrability at all times, and you're in control. So you can master every situation, whether in the city or on a long ride in the country.

Weighs a little. Carries a lot.

The Multicharger sets new standards in terms of the ratio of size and weight to loading options. So a full family shop is no problem at all. Or even two small children – safely accommodated in child seats. It can transport an additional load of up to 60 kg with surprising ease on its rear. And if you carry the Multicharger up or down a few steps, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how light it is: the Multicharger weighs less than 30 kg in most model variants.

Transport: good(s) 

To match your Multicharger, the perfect accessories provide the ideal solution for your transport projects.

 

Transporting children

Up to two child seats from some manufacturers can be mounted on the long 64.5 cm carrier.

Transporting people

The optional passenger kit with comfortable foam seat, handles and footrests offers space for one passenger up to 60 kg.

Transporting cargo

Two fixed cargo bags, each with a volume of 33 litres, make optimum use of the cargo area. Full of useful details, everything finds its intended place.

None

Power from within.

The concentrated power of the 500 Wh battery is so perfectly integrated that it is easy to miss at first glance. You either charge it directly on the bike or remove the battery by lifting out and down. The integration into the frame protects the battery from moisture and stone chips while riding. The battery capacity can be doubled to 1,000 Wh with the optional DualBattery Technology – the use of a second external battery.  

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic Magura MT4 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 outlook.

At dusk, in the woods or late at night: Supernova’s or Busch & Müller’s LED headlamps provide consistently excellent road illumination whenever you go for a ride. They are supplied with power by the battery. Thus, full lighting power is ensured at all times – whether at high speeds or standing still, for instance when stopping at a traffic light.
