The 2024 edition of Eurobike in Frankfurt is turning heads once again with countless innovative products. Premium bike manufacturer Riese & Müller are causing a stir with the latest iteration of their Homage ebike, which comes equipped with a low-maintenance Pinion MGU E1.12 motor/gearbox unit for the first time.

It’s that time of the year again! Eurobike has opened its doors for the 2024 edition, and brands are presenting exciting innovations in the urban city life, sustainability and comfort segments. We spent some time at the German manufacturer’s fair stand, took a look at their bikes and collected all the relevant information for you.

Premium German bike manufacturer Riese & Müller presented two new models at Eurobike 2024: the new edition of the Riese & Müller Delite E-SUV and, at the same time, the Riese & Müller Homage. The Homage relies on a near-identical frame design and spec as the Delite, but with a step-through frame.

For the first time, Riese & Müller are cooperating with motor manufacturer Pinion, providing not only the Delite but also the Homage with their MGU E1.12 motor/gearbox unit. As the name suggests, this combines a motor and gearbox in one unit and, according to Pinion, it’s virtually maintenance-free, requiring just an oil change every 10,000 km. Following a software update, which is due to be released in the summer, the MGU will also have a fully automatic shifting function. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a low-maintenance carbon belt. The full suspension Homage relies on a 125 mm FOX fork, paired with 45 mm of rear travel. The rear pannier rack is secured to the seat tube and therefore suspended, meaning that your beer crate won’t explode during a rough ride on country lanes, making it to the barbecue unscathed. The Homage can be configured with Riese & Müller’s typical features, like the RX anti-theft chip and comfort kit for an even more comfortable ride.

The Riese & Müller Homage will be available in the last quarter of 2024 for € 8,399. Thanks to the multi-drive concept, it will also be available with a different motor system, which the developers have not yet disclosed. We’re looking forward to a first test ride with the new Riese & Müller Homage, and will provide our first impression after the test.
