Carrie Hampel / electrive »

If Bosch has its way, e-bike riding will be noticeably smarter in the future, thanks to the new Nyon onboard computer that is networked with Bosch digital e-bike products. The onboard computer automatically synchronises ride data with the eBike Connect app and the associated online site. During the ride, the Mini-PC can be controlled using a separate control unit. When on the move, the 3.2-inch colour display shows the user the way, provides fitness data and informs the rider how far they can get with the selected assistance under the geographical conditions or when a different mode should be selected in favour of range. As a premium function, Bosch also offers the prospect of additional digital protection against theft and promises that other connectivity functions are to follow in the future. Nyon will be available for retrofitting from specialist dealers from autumn and is compatible with all drive systems from model year 2014.

From this summer, software updates for Bosch’s Cargo Line, Cargo Line Speed, Performance Line Speed and Performance Line CX will also be available for model year 2021. According to the manufacturer, new features include a maximum torque of 85 Nm and further developed software, which should result in “an even more natural and dynamic driving experience”. According to Bosch, the increased torque provides a plus in performance, which is more noticeable at a low cadence.

The rideshare giant said it would be too difficult to donate these bikes because of safety and liability concerns. A spokesman told CNBC “the best approach was to responsibly recycle them,” while video posted on Twitter from a North Carolina recycling center shows the candy red bikes being crushed as scrap metal.
