Sparta E-Speed M9B BOSCH Stepthrough Electric Bike
Like all Sparta e-bikes the build quality and technology of the BOSCH E-Speed electric bike is way ahead of the competition. Its light-weight 400Wh battery is rack mounted and capable of propelling you 90 miles between recharging.
Sparta’s powerful 60Nm motor crank-drive motor makes it ideal for those living in hilly areas …or planning to tour the Pyrenees!
The aluminium frame is beautifully formed, reassuringly sturdy, and the combination of gel filled Selle Royale seat, sprung seat post, and Sparta Headstock suspension ensure maximum rider comfort whether on road or exploring bumpy tracks and rural paths.
Sparta have always been ahead of the rest when it comes to security, the E-Speed comes complete with removable LCD display and built in mechanical lock.
The multi function back-lit LCD handlebar display shows the following information:
- total mileage
- trip distance
- selected assistance level
- battery charge status
- remaining range
- average speed
- time and date
Powerful front and rear lights switch on automatically when the Sparta detects low light levels.
The Dutch have thought of everything… the E-Speed has a park-assist function propels the e-bike through deep sand and slippery paths or up steep ramps and stairs when you’re walking alongside.
Powerful Magura hydraulic brakes front and rear give effective and predictable braking in all conditions, and it’s sporty steering geometry make it a very rewarding ride for accomplished cyclists whatever the road or track conditions. A great choice for men and women who prefer not to do battle with a cross-bar!
Because the Sparta E-Speed can travel at speeds of up to 45Kmh it must be registered with the DVLA and you have to have insurance and hold a driving license to ride it. Registration is a straight-forward procedure – if you would like more details please contact us .
MADE BY DUTCH MEN AND WOMEN IN APELDOORN, HOLLAND.
SPARTA are the most successful e-bike producer in Europe. By a huge margin. Form follows function across their wide and varied range of electric bikes. They enjoy the No.1 spot in Holland, Germany, Belgium, Austria and France where products win design awards year after year.
Sparta e-bike designers began with a clean sheet of paper on which they wrote the following: Reliability; Range; Security; Style; Simplicity; Silence; Comfort; Power; Practicality; Longevity; Versatility; and above all, Value for Money. Have they delivered? We think so.
Sparta started with the advantage of decades of experience producing “SpartaMets” – those peculiar contraptions that combine a bicycle with a small petrol engine hidden in the rear wheel – a few of which can still be heard buzzing around the streets of Amsterdam today. We have a 1972 vintage SpartaMet in our Suffolk showroom (se pic below) – come and try it, its great fun!
As advances in battery and electric motor technology developed to a point where comparable range and power could be achieved without the din and smoke of a two-stroke engine, Sparta made the natural leap to e-bikes
With this wealth of powered bicycle experience behind them they developed a range of beautifully engineered e-bikes that meet the requirements and expectations of discerning customers of all ages and tastes. For example, some Sparta e-bikes have batteries hidden away in their frame so they look like conventional bikes. Some have removable batteries so they can be un-clipped and recharged alongside the toaster up in a 7th floor flat. All have built in mechanical locks and many have electronic immobilisers. All have powerful and silent maintenance-free motors.
In seeking out the best e-bikes available I visit many factories. I’m at Sparta’s headquarters in Apeldoorn at least twice a year and every time I’m surprised by some new manufacturing process or advance in technology. Sparta, you see, are ahead of the game by at least two years. But one thing never changes: the Dutch men and women that operate their state-of-the-art production line, man the phones, print the brochures, and make the coffee, are happy and proud of their work. They may not sport wooden clogs these days, but the sight of a smiling Dutch workforce doing what they’ve done best for centuries is somehow reassuring in this modern age. Producing 21st century vehicles built on the same ‘Quality First and Last’ ethos as their 1930’s machines, that’s something special indeed.
