Which bikes will have Bosch's new motors in 2020?
Posted on October 16 2019
Bosch has released two new motors for e-bikes in the 2020 model year (meaning some of these bikes will arrive in late 2019). These are the new Performance Line motor (which they're calling Gen3) and the new Performance Line CX motor (which they're calling Gen4). In the picture below, you can see the size difference between the old Gen2 CX motor on the left, and the new Gen4 CX motor on the right.
The new Gen4 motor is 1.3kg lighter (2.79kg vs 4.09kg), plus it can give more assistance (340% vs 300%).
The sensors have been upgraded in the motor, so it's more sensitive and responsive to the pressure you're applying to the pedals.
So the big question: which 2020 bikes will feature this motor? Here's the list:
