What it's built for:
The Homage is Riese & Müller’s full-suspension low-step electric commuter, a truly convention-defying bicycle if there ever was one. A full-suspension design means it tracks even the roughest streets with a smooth grip and a comfortable ride while the low-step design means getting on and off is a breeze even for all riders. Top it off with a standard suite of commuter-friendly accessories, plus the ability to double your battery capacity, and the Homage is ready to be your new partner in crime for exploring the city you love. This Vario version uses an R&M specific Enviolo infinite-shift internal-hub gearing system that provides a wide range with no conventional “gears”; the chain is then replaced with an ultra-low maintenance belt for hassle-free riding. The HS version upgrades to Bosch’s Performance Line Speed motor which increases maximum assisted speed to a zippy 45kph.
Why we love it:
Before the Homage was released if you asked us about a low-step full-suspension bike we would have told you it couldn’t have been done. Well, those clever R&M engineers have proved the world wrong once again with this truly unique bike. This brilliant design means that all types of riders can experience the benefits of a full-suspension bicycle, keeping riders safe, comfortable, and happy. We love that.
