We are live in Schweinfurt, Germany for the eBike launch and first preview of the 2017 Haibike xDuro and sDuro electric bikes. Want to see what's new?.. The launch set off at a secret location close to Haibike's production facility in Germany. The presentation was attended by the top dealers from around the world in an exclusive first look at the 2017 model ranges that will be officially announced later this year.
Haibike has always been ahead when it comes to electric bike integration with their sDuro (Yamaha) and xDuro (Bosch) ranges of eBikes.
New Features for 2017 Haibike
Yamaha PW-X System
New for 2017 is the Yamaha PW-X system, a totally revised, more powerful eBike system that will feature on some of the higher end Haibike sDuro line up of eBikes for 2016.
You can read our full article on the new Yamaha PW-X system here - Yamaha PW-X 2017.
Integrated Yamaha Display
The Haibike 2017 sDuro model range with the new Yamaha eBike system will have an exclusive Integrated Display, designed by Haibike to mount the complete display within the stem. The new stem will be available in 3 lengths.
This is fully integrated with metal a surround, so nothing protrudes from the bike allowing for a neat bar set-up and less vulnerability overall, particularity for eMTB'ers.
Bosch Purion Display
Haibike have opted for the smaller Bosch Purion display across both the xDuro Downhill, NDURO and so me of the AllMtn ranges for 2017. This smaller display sits to the left of the bars with inbuilt user controls and screen in one small, compact unit.

eConnect eBike App
Haibike have developed the worlds first integrated eBike smartphone application. Some of the higher end sDuro (Yamaha) 2017 model ranges will come pre installed with the hardware to run the application. Users can then become fully connected to their eBikes by use of a smart phone application labelled 'eConnect'.
The eConnect On Board Unit (OBU) hardware will allow many connections from a Haibike including GPS for location tracking, GSM for communication, Bluetooth for data connectivity & an in-built battery. This new technology will open up many new features that we will cover in a separate article. But for the time being, things like Anti-Theft, Bike Locator, Crash Detection & Route Exports will become available.
When can I get these?
The new Haibike sDuro & xDuro 2017 ranges will be announced later this year at EuroBike. With pre-orders starting closer to Christmas and likely stock arriving early next year.
