Bosch is a German-based company well-known the world over for reliable and state-of-the-art engineering.
As such, they make some of the best motors on the market, for everything from cars to lawnmowers to electric bicycles,
To help ensure you get a bike with a top-notch motor, keep reading and peruse our list of e-bikes that come equipped with Bosch systems!
1. MoustacheSAMEDI 28.2 Open
A powerful bike with an equally powerful price tag, the Moustache SAMEDI will get you where you need to go and then some.
Certainly not a budget pick at around 3,000 USD, depending on the retailer – this is a high-performance bike for serious e-bike enthusiasts.
Both the 500-watt motor and the 13.4 amp-hour integrated battery are made by Bosch and can take you about 30 miles, give or take.
2. Urban Arrow Family Performance Line Plus
A great choice for any parent looking for a good bike to attach a trailer to, or for that matter anyone who wants to haul any kind of cargo.
This bike by Urban Arrow is definitely on the pricier side, with a price hovering around $6,000, so it’s certainly not for everyone.
However, if you have a need to haul cargo and really want to do it in an e-bike, the Bosch performance line engine and 13.4AH integrated battery will help you do just that!
3. Mondraker CRAFTY CARBON R
If you thought three grand was a lot for a single-rider e-bike, you’ll probably want to stay away from the wallet-busting Mondraker CRAFT CARBON R, which runs for around $6,000.
That being said, if you can afford it, you’ll get a sturdy, state-of-the-art performance e-bike with some of the best components Bosch has to offer.
With a Bosch Performance Line CX motor and an impressively high-capacity 20.1AH battery, this bike will take you where you need to go with speed, style, and efficiency.

So what do you get for all that money?
Well, you get a precision-crafted bike equipped with only the best components, including a Bosch Performance Line CX motor, 16.7AH battery, and various high-tech bells and whistles.
For instance, this one comes with an LED remote control center on the handlebars, alongside handy features like GPS navigation.
5. Cannondale 650 U Topstone Neo Crb 3 Lefty
Running for around $5,000, the Cannondale 650 comes equipped with a Bosch Performance Line CX motor paired with a 13.4AH battery.
Besides that, it looks rather striking with a sort of retro-modern aesthetic and seems quite sturdy besides.
If you’re looking for a top-of-the-line option that isn’t quite as expensive as some of the other entries on the list, look no further!
6. Cannondale 29 M Tesoro Neo X 2
The Cannondale Tesoro Neo line offers enthusiasts a comparatively affordable Touring e-bike option.
It goes for between $3,000 and $5,000 depending on who’s selling. It’s certainly still pricey, but you could snag it for half the cost of some of the entries above.
Equipped with a Performance Line CX Bosch motor and a 16.7AH battery, this long-haul, hard-wearing touring bike will take you far before running dry.
7. Ghost E-Riot Trail AL Essential
We weren’t able to get specific price information for this one, but Ghost e-bikes seem to range anywhere from $500 (used) to a few thousand.
Either way, the E-Riot Trail model is a great choice for off-road or dirt road biking with its thick, resistant tires.
It also features a Bosch Performance Line CX motor and a 16.7AH battery.

This versatile combo, plus the stylish, sturdy frame, allows you to commute—or explore, or try a challenging bike trail—with ease and efficiency.
10. Gazelle Arroyo C7 HMB Elite
It should be no surprise that several Gazelle e-bikes also make this list!
Not only do they make some of the best e-bikes on the entire market, Gazelle’s commitment to quality means only two motor manufacturers meet their very high standards.
Naturally, Bosch is one of them, and the Gazelle Arroyo C7 is among Gazelle’s selection of mid-drive mounted Bosch motor-equipped bikes.
The Arroyo C7 is a versatile Gazelle line that offers comfort, style, and enough power and battery capacity to do a little bit of everything.
Whether you’re commuting, exercising, or trying out hilly bike trails for fun, the Arroyo’s Bosh Active Line Plus motor and 500WH battery let you do it all.
With a price tag of $3,399, this powerful versatility is delivered to you at a downright reasonable price—relative to other, pricier e-bikes at any rate.

11. Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB
Speaking of reasonable prices, the Gazelle Medeo T9 City HMB will only cost you $2,499!
While prices in the thousands can’t really be called a “budget pick,” compared to the competition, this is downright cheap.
Don’t think you’ll be sacrificing performance for that price cut, though; Gazelle makes some of the best e-bikes you’ll ever find and still manages to give you a great deal while doing so.
Gazelle describes this particular bike as “an ideal first introduction to e-bikes,” so between the quality, the versatility, and the price, this is a fantastic choice for your first e-bike.
Whether you’re a beginner looking for an ideal starting point or a long-time enthusiast looking for a versatile budget pick, the Medeo T9 City HMB has you covered.
With a 400W rack-mounted Bosh motor and a 400WH battery, this bike is especially ideal for commuters, whether your destination is school, work, or the grocery store.
12. Gazelle Medeo T10+ HMB
Gazelle’s Medeo line is a stylish and popular lineup among the greater Gazelle fleet, and with good reason.
The T19+ HMB exemplifies the versatility and value of the Medeo line with wide, durable tires, the capacity to carry two batteries for longer trips, and a top pedal-assist speed of 28mph.
This impressive package will cost you $3,799, and features Bosh’s most powerful motor: the Performance Line Speed mid-mounted motor, with up to 85 Nm of torque!
With a max range of 55 miles—which you can double if you buy a second battery to equip it with—the T10+ HMB will take you where you need to go and then some.
13. Gazelle Medeo T10 HMB
The slightly less expensive younger sibling to the T10+, the Gazelle Medeo T10 HMB remains a robust e-bike that can tackle a variety of tasks.
At $3,299, you can save $500 compared to the T10+, and you still get a stylish, sturdy frame equipped with quality Bosh technology.
In fact, the T10 actually beats the T10+’s maximum single-battery range, with a projected max range of 70 miles!
14. Gazelle Medeo T9 HMB
The last Medeo line model to make this list, the T9 HMB will cost you $2,799 and delivers hard-wearing performance for long bike rides.
If the T9 City HMB is the ideal beginner’s Gazelle bike, then the T9 HMB is its older and more experienced brother.
With an especially responsive braking system and a maximum range of 60 miles, what this bike lacks in raw speed or power, it makes up for in longevity.
With a Gazelle Medeo T9 HMB, you’ll find yourself taking the long way home on purpose, secure in the knowledge that this bike can handle it.
15. Gazelle Ultimate C380+ HMB
Gazelle wasn’t kidding when it put the word “ultimate” in this bike’s name: everything from the frame to the tech to the price tag fits the bill.
Running for $4,499, this relatively pricey e-bike is still cheaper than some of the other options on this list, and it probably outperforms them, too!
It’s got Bosch’s most powerful motor, the same as the Medeo T10+: a Bosch mid-drive Performance Line Speed, with an impressive 85 Nm of torque.
This means the Ultimate can handle almost any kind of terrain, can reach 28mph on pedal assist, and sustain this for an impressive length of time.
Please also read our blog about how much electric bikes really help you pedal.
The main appeal of the Ultimate is that it can do almost anything, from commuting to racing to touring to mountain bike trails, and does so nearly effortlessly.
