E-bike engine brands

Power, energy and reliability. The engine, together with the battery and controller, is the driving force of your electric bike. And that is precisely why we have chosen our engine systems with all due care. The right power combined with the silence of the engine makes for an experience to enjoy every time.

Kreutzer and Bafang

Kreutzer is a premium brand developed based on existing techniques and in close cooperation with Bafang. High-quality displays, batteries, controllers and drive systems that work optimally in tune and are designed to optimize the assist to the user. It gives an instantly familiar, comfortable feel and offers maximum assistance when required.

Bafang engines are known for their high power capacity. This is because the amount of torque on the engines is relatively high compared to other brands. That's a real boon. You feel it when you need a little extra assist. High torque also means faster acceleration from standstill. It also makes cycling on a slope easier.

Bafang M420

The Muon Fusion, Comfy and Invite are all equipped with a Bafang M420 engine. The mid-mounted engine has a powerful torque of 80 Newton metres (Nm) and fits our frames perfectly. Equipped with pedal force sensors that measure exactly how much assistance you need, combined with sporty assistance modes. Even mountains are accessible with a torque at this level.

The Muon Strive is connected to a Bafang M200 engine. It has a torque of 65 Nm and is much lighter than the M420. Wonderfully quiet and intuitive, for everyday use. And also like the M420, equipped with intuitive pedal force sensors. All this makes the M200 a light, quiet yet powerful mid-engine.

Shimano STEPS (Shimano Total Electric Power System) engines have established quite a track record among e-bike systems. And with good reason. The engines offer a pleasant, stable and smooth assist. And you feel that with every pedal stroke. Muon uses three different Shimano e-bike engines: the Shimano E5000, Shimano E6100 and the extra powerful Shimano E8000.

The Muon Vesper is equipped with the lightweight E5000 engine. With a 40 Nm torque, you have more than enough power for daily rides. And thanks to the light weight of 2.5 kg, you can cycle without any pedal assistance!

The Nifty, Lusty and Zippy are working with some heavier guys. Well, with 2.88 kg the STEPS E6100 can't really be called heavy. The smooth and intelligent assist reaches up to 60 Nm. A nice advantage: the E6100 is up to 20% more economical than the normal E6000 variant.

If you want to go for an even sportier experience, the Muon Fine is waiting for you. This sporty e-bike has a Shimano E8000 engine with a 70 Nm torque. Thanks to the narrow engine housing and Dynamic Chain Engagement system, you'll continue to pedal as if you were on a real mountain bike. Even when it gets steep, the E8000 assists perfectly. Muon is also the first to use the E8000 for sporty purposes.
