Eurobike in Frankfurt has opened its doors again, with countless manufacturers presenting a wealth of new products and exciting innovations for urban riding. Amongst them are Riese & Müller, who launched their Delite 5 with integrated Pinion MGU E1.12 motor.

At this year’s Eurobike, the urban bike sector is particularly exciting, with manufacturers presenting countless new products which impress with their comfort and quality. Ebikes have long become an integral part of cities, while trekking ebikes and e-SUVs are trying to bridge the gap between urban transport and leisure riding.

One of the industry leaders in the urban sector, Riese & Müller, has unveiled a new iteration of their popular eSUV at Eurobike 2024. The new Delite 5 full-suspension ebike comes equipped with a 120 mm FOX fork and 45 mm shock, which is integrated at an angle into the bottom bracket area above the motor, protected by a cover.

A first for Riese & Müller – for the first time, the German manufacturer uses a low-maintenance Pinion MGU E1.12 motor-gearbox unit, which features a fully-automatic shifting function and low-maintenance belt – and is also used on the Riese & Müller Homage. The motor draws its power from an 800 Wh battery that can be removed from the down tube for external charging.

The Riese & Müller Delite 5 will be available from the 1st of August 2024 as a full package with a rear pannier rack, mudguards, kickstand and lighting system, retailing at € 8,399. Thanks to the multi-drive concept, which enables you to choose from different drive systems and batteries, the Delite 5 will also be available with a different motor system. However, Riese & Müller’s development team has not yet revealed what the alternative is. Moreover, Riese & Müller let you choose further accessories such as the RX anti-theft chip and comfort kit for more comfort, from their extensive online configurator. Despite looking quite bulky at first glance, the Delite 5 should be a little wonder of technology, and extremely easy to maintain. We’re looking forward to a first test ride with the new Riese & Müller Delite.
