  • Made for You in Germany: Riese & Müller assembles each bike in their factory in Weiterstadt, Germany to your specifications. This means that you can choose things like color, motor style, battery, drivetrain, and accessories. The New Wheel is here to help you to design the perfect bike. Learn more.
  • The 'Social' Charger: Thanks to an extended cargo rack and optional accessories, the Multicharger is ready to carry a child or adult passenger to join you on your adventures.
  • Able To Handle Your Cargo: Whether it's groceries, camping gear, or tools for your trade, the Multicharger can haul it all with ease thanks to oversized front and rear racks and ample panniers.
  • No Longer Than the Standard Charger:  This fact defies logic, but it's true.  The engineering of the rear rack accommodates the extra payload, allowing the bike to retain its standard length footprint and excellent handling.
  • Totally, 100%, Fully Loaded: The Charger comes fully loaded with everything you need to ride, including front and rear racks, integrated front and rear lights, sturdy metal fenders, a kickstand and top-end tires.
  • Lower Step Mixte Style Multicharger  - Perfect for sharing with a rider of a different height, and great if you just want additional stability when getting on and off of a fully loaded electric bike.
  • Fully Integrated Battery:  Not only does the new integrated PowerTube battery look great - it improves handling by keeping the battery weight low and centered.  Battery charges on the bike, or can be removed and charged off-board.
  • Optional 2nd Battery Extends Your Range:  Add an optional 2nd external Bosch PowerPack to double your range. Only available on the diamond-frame Multicharger due to space requirements
  • Comfortable and Well-Appointed: An upright ride position is complemented by front-suspension and a Thudbuster suspension seat post. 
  • Enviolo + Belt Drive = Amazing: If you're looking for ease of use and low maintenance, consider equipping the Charger with an Enviolo  (formerly Nuvinci) transmission paired with a Gates Carbon Belt Drive.
  • A Warranty You Can Trust: Riese & Müller's warranty is backed by The New Wheel True Warranty™  and upheld by our professional service department. Includes 5-year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 2 years for all other components (some exceptions apply).

Is this The 'Better' Charger?

The Multicharger is a standard length utility bike that can carry a kid or an adult or tons of stuff.  That's right - the Multicharger is the same length as the regular Charger, but can do so much more!

What's In a Name?

Perhaps the meaning derives from this bike's ability to carry multiple people with ease.  Or perhaps it's connected to the multiple functions that this bike can help you accomplish - lugging stuff, or people from here to there.  Or maybe it's linked to the multiple terrains this bike can tackle - the GX model being especially ready for off-road utility cycling.  Then again, perhaps it references the multitude of options available for you to choose from on this bike.  This bike will multiply your experience of cycling through incredibly smart design, near-perfect integration of electric assist.


Two Bosch Motor Options

A high-speed Bosch Performance Speed motor option on the Charger will help you devour those miles in record time. Or, look to the Bosch CX Drive for unbeatable torque to tackle the most challenging terrain.

Designed for Comfort, Built for the Long Haul 

An upright ride position make the this Multicharger supremely stable and comfortable even at speed.

Premium components and an extensive feature set make it ideal for long touring, but also just a durable, sturdy bike that can act as your commuter and passenger carrier.
