Riese & Muller's 2021 range can only be described as extraordinary. It is a beautiful range of ebikes that expands further into the urban category and introduces some clever designs that will set trends across the industry.
Every model from 2020 has been updated or changed in some way this year. Here are the broad changes:
There are four standouts this year.
We were expecting change for this model, anticipating it would be updated to the Gen 4 Bosch CX motor however the whole bike has had an overhaul.
What really stands out though, and is a first for the industry, is the dual battery set up for the stepthrough frame. It has side-by-side positioning of the two powertube 625Wh batteries in the downtube. This provides a whopping 1,250Wh capacity and still keeps the stepthrough area free and clear.
There are a host of new changes for the Homage this year, making it even more beautiful and with outstanding performance. Read our article on the 2021 Homage for further details.
Riese & Muller have replaced the popular Packster 60 and Packster 80 models with this new model. It retains the Packster DNA but introduces technology that makes it even more useable such as:
Another cool feature - A cute, fluffy dog as one of your bike models :)
Another model we were expecting to change for 2021. Now with a new frame that features the Gen 4 Bosch CX motor, the option for a 625Wh battery, or a 1,125Wh battery design that keeps the stepthrough area clear if opting for dual battery.

Riese & Muller have expanded their urban range for Australia this year and there are three excellent models available. These are all classic and classy bikes with powerful motors, extra range and eye-catching designs. And with a bit of sass and personality!
