The New Raleigh Motus Range - Explained

Posted by Rob Day on

The Raleigh Motus has been a popular bike in Raleigh's city/touring range of Electric Bikes for a number of years, however, in May 2018 Raleigh launched an all new Motus range of bikes to cover an even wider scope of requirements. There are now three bikes in the range to choose from; the Motus, Motus Tour and Motus Grand Tour. Each bike caters for slightly different needs and comes with different setup and sizing options, totalling amassing 33 possible variants to choose from. This article explains the differences between them to help you choose the right bike for you!   

Raleigh Motus

Motus Low Step Green

The Motus is the starting point in the range of bikes and at £1650 it offers fantastic value for money! The Motus is a fully equipped bike packed with extra features and quality components such as disc brakes for ultimate stopping performance, reflective ebike-specific tyres, a traditional bell, adjustable handlebar stem and 7 speed derailleur gears. It is ideal for city riding, surfaced roads or cycle paths so you can use it as a cohesive part of your everyday life. Powered by Bosch's new generation Active Line motor and a 300Wh battery, it gives you 4 different assistance modes with a maximum assistance of 250% and a range of up to 90 miles, resulting in a very capable bike!

Raleigh Motus Tour

The Motus Tour has an increased range along with higher specification components and a different gearing option. The Motus Tour is perfect for a range of city trips, relaxed tours and weekend trails. The 400WH battery will allow you to ride for up to an impressive 110 miles on a single charge, again with Bosch's new generation  Active Line motor, you'll be able to tackle even the steepest hills!  The Motus Tour also benefits from the upgraded Intuvia, which gives you maximum clarity and convenience with the display centrally mounted on the stem. It also contains more riding data such as maximum speed, average speed, clock, trip time and gear shift indicator, helping you to achieve maximum benefit from the motor by suggesting a gear change, if necessary. Along with the choice of frame size and colour, the Motus Tour also comes with the option of an internal hub gearing system to improve reliability, ease of use and reduce home maintenance.

Raleigh Motus Grand Tour

The Motus Grand Tour sits at the top of the range of Raleigh Motus bikes, with a more powerful motor and premium components. The new generation Active Line Plus motor makes its first appearance on a Raleigh electric bike offering an almost completely noise free experience and a higher level of pedal rate detection to improve cycling efficiency so you can get the maximum enjoyment out of your journeys. What's more, with a maximum assistance output of 270% you'll find the hills a breeze compared to a regular bike. It also has the choice of internal hub gearing along with frame size and colour, making the Motus Grand Tour the most versatile and capable bike out of the three.
