The Raleigh Motus electric bike is one of the best electric bikes created by Raleigh to date and is exceptionally reliable, well made and comfortable to ride. The Raleigh Motus is also one of the most affordable electric bikes to use the Bosch Active Line eBike system, widely regarded by many to be the best eBike system currently available.
The Motus has both front and back mudguards, a rear rack for panniers, an integrated front light, an exceptionally comfortable saddle and front suspension. Braking is covered by the tried and tested Magura HS11 hydraulic rim brakes, that provided excellent braking without the extra weight of disc brakes. The eBike is also equipped with Schwalbe's ebike specific Energizer tyres to keep your wheels firmly planted to the road.
All of these components make the Raleigh Motus a significantly better bike than the Raleigh Captus while still allowing eBike to cost less than £2000.
The 2016 Raleigh Motus uses Magura HS11 hydraulic rim brakes. These brakes are used on a wide range of Raleigh bikes and electric bikes and are know for their reliability and excellent safety record. This is all provided without the extra weight of discs.
The Raleigh Motus also comes with the 63mm Suntour Nex suspension fork that combined with the 3 Zone Comfort Saddle and its M Shaped Handlebars creates a very comfortable riding experience.
The Raleigh Motus uses SRAM's Via Centro Gearing. This system harnesses Sram's xGlide technology that provides exceptionally smooth gear shifting.
