New Integrated battery Range

2017 sees Moustache start to integrate their Bosch batteries into their frames. This is a major development for Moustache but also for Bosch. Until recently Bosch powered bikes have been easily recognisable mainly thanks to the precense of the frame mounted battery. This new range of bikes has integrated 70% of the battery into the frame virtually concealing the battery on first glance. This is a feature that a lot of people are looking for and we are excited to see that it has been done with a Bosch powered bike. The new models with integrated battery are:-

  • Samedi 27 Off 6*
