The Latest, Greatest All-Arounder

This is the latest and greatest Charger in the tradition of comfortable, upright bikes from German bike-maker Riese & Müller.

Putting the Charge in Charger

The Charger features an integrated electric design, made possible by a concealed Bosch PowerTube battery (new for 2018).  The 500 Wh battery is essentially invisible, well-protected from the elements, and keeps battery weight low and centered for improved ebike handling.

The Charger, one of Riese & Müller's most popular models in Europe, is designed to be an athletic bike that is a bit more comfort and cruising oriented than the Roadster and a little more performance-oriented than the Nevo.

 

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 

A long wheelbase and upright ride position make the Charger supremely stable and comfortable.

Premium components and an extensive feature set make it perfect for long touring, but also just a durable, sturdy bike.

The Charger is a touring bike that is perfectly at home in city riding.  Or maybe it's your city bike that takes you camping on the weekends.  Come check it out.
