The Motus stepthrough by Raleigh electric bikes is made for comfort. The step-through frame allows for easy mounting and dismounting, which is especially handy if you utilise the rack to carry panniers.
The swept back handlebars help the cyclist maintain an upright riding position for extra comfort and its wide grip take off pressure off the hands and wrists.
You can tell Raleigh electric bikes had town journeys in mind. The Motus has an in-built wheel lock. It’s so quick to immobilise your bike if you’re making a short pit-stop. It’s a useful feature for shopping or nipping in to the Post Office for example.
However, for all this talk of comfort, you also get power in this bike. The 400WH battery is a match for Scott’s range of e-bikes, which we also stock. The Motus uses the ‘Active’ system, which has all the high-quality components you’d expect from Bosch but is not designed for sport or off-road riding as the Scott’s preferred ‘Performance’ unit is.
Style wise, its smart two-tone frame, combines well with the chrome handlebars, the reflective tyre walls and the classic Raleigh badge on the front stem. The battery is neatly tucked under the rear rack and the grey drive unit fits well into the overall design scheme.
All in all, this is a high-quality bike at a good price and if you need something to get you into town, you cannot go wrong. Raleigh electric bikes have a winner with the Motus.
