New Features

Raleigh have teamed up with the German manufacturers Bosch to create a well specified Europe built crank drive bike. 

The Tektro hydraulic disc brakes ensure the Motus Grand Tour electric bike comes to a stop where needed, with good braking performance and minimal maintenance.

Whilst we are on maintenance, aside from keeping it clean and oiling the chain from time to time, there is not actually that much else too it!

The Raleigh Motus Tour Low Step comes fully equipped with all the practical functions you would expect. Raleigh have opted to offer an eBike that you needn't add any extras. Well, maybe a helmet and a nice set of pannier bags?..

Hub Gear or 9spd Derailleur Version?

The Raleigh Motus Grand Tour is offered in two specs - hub gear or derailleur. Hub gears are best for long flatter terrain, they offer a range of gears with minimal fuss. Both up and downhill you'll have enough gears for everyday riding. The hub version is £100 more.

Hub gears benefit from a user friendly system, the controls are easy to navigate (just up and down) and they also benefit from being very low maintenance.

Because the chain does not move, it doesn't wear the same and there is little wear on the sprockets. Thus, not needing for frequent changes of the chain and/or sprockets.

The Motus Tour model features a 7 speed gear system, provided by Shimano, the 7 Speed Internal Nexus gear hub offers silky smooth shifting while maintaining a completely straight chain line.  

It works in harmony with the Bosch eBike drive system and offers a reliable maintenance free solution. The 7 speed setup offers a wider range bottom to top for all hills and descents.

9 Speed Shimano Alivio Gears on Raleigh Motus Grand Tour

Alternatively you can opt for the Shimano Alivio 9 speed drive train on a derailleur gear setup, offering a wide range of gears.

The wheels feature decent hubs & Raleigh have used alloy double wall rims for superior strength and minimal weight.

The wheels on this model are 'quick release' front & rear. This means you can remove the wheels in seconds if required. 

To glide you over some of the bumpier roads / terrain are Suntour's front suspension fork with 50mm of travel to take the zing out of the front end. The rear is covered by the comfort suspension seat post and gel saddle. 

The semi wrap bars are natural to hold and combined with the adjustable stem and comfort grips allow the rider to get in the perfect position.

Raleigh Motus Grand Tour Low Step Electric Bike Review

The Raleigh Motus Grand Tour Low Step includes a complete mudguard set, comfort saddle, ergonomic grips, adjustable stem, prop stand, pannier rack and puncture resistant tyres. It even has built in lights which are powered off the eBike system itself.

No bulbs or batteries to contend with, the lights are always ready for you. Also for this new model it has a built in chain guard, keeping the rider clean and no longer can trousers get caught.

Bosch Active Line Plus System

The new Raleigh Motus Grand Tour features the latest Bosch Active Line Plus eBike system. Offering a larger sprocket upfront with no internal gearing, this motor is much quieter and features little resistance when pedalling outside of the assistance.

The Bosch Intuvia display shows rider credentials at a glance whilst keeping the cockpit clean. It offers quick access to parameters and assistance modes. Also offering the 'Walk Assist' function and the ability to remove it from the bike when parked to immobilise the electrical system in case of theft. 

The Raleigh Motus Grand Tour comes with a bigger 500Wh battery, offering an extra 25% range than the 400Wh Bosch battery. Support is delivered in 4 different assistance modes up to 15mph.

Customer Reviews

Had my mind set on a Raleigh step through ebike. The large national shop "you know who" has pathetic levels of stock so I widened my search to "raleigh step through" and landed on "ebikeshop". They were offering much better scope of choice so I found what iwanted and even more. Alfred, aka "Fred" was to hand to expertly handle all questions and the bike was on its way. During my enquiries and after I took delivery, Fred answered the phone and email queries instantly, such a change to the impersonal attitude we receive from other services. Wish I had listened to others to had said " should have done this earlier" Cant believe how good the bike is. Thank you Alfred for your service.
I love my Motus Low Step Grand Tour - I'm a middle aged, non-athetic lady with short legs, who was looking for a bike that would enable to me to get out and about on mainly roads and the occasional trail. This bike has suited me really well so far. E -Bikeshop were very helpful and kindly ordered in the version with 26 inch wheels from Raleigh for me - this turned out to be exactly the right decision, as even with the smaller wheeled model, the saddle is almost down on it's lowest position (I'm 5ft4 with 28 inch inside leg measurement). The bike itself is well equipped - everything works as it should and the bike feels well made and solid. The tyres cope well with gentle off-road riding, although not so well with full gravel. The racktime compatible pannier systems is great, I have got a trunk bag with fold out panniers, which is brilliant if I decide to pick up some shopping on the way home. The Bosch system is very efficient - pretty effortless riding up all but the steepest hills, and for someone like myself who's not particularly technical, I like the fact the bike only has 9 gears as it means you only have one chainring to worry about. The only things I've changed so far are the saddle (for a Brooks) and the bell (which sadly didn't work at all). I am still on the fence about the slightly swept back handlebars, but I'm getting used to them. Overall, really happy with my purchase, and appreciate the willingness of e-bikeshop to do a custom order for me for the version with smaller wheels.
Review submitted on previous model: Hi, 62 year old male and 5x female. We bought these bikes on a whim at New Forest show. Took delivery from Martin on Saturday.
Review submitted on previous model: This bike is everything I was hoping from an electric bike, after visiting the cycle show in 2013 and months of reading ebike reviews I was a bit nervous of spending such a lot of money. However after my first cycle ride on the Raleigh Motus I am 100% convinced that I have chosen the best bike for me and I love it.
