Best for the city
Compact and discreet, the SHIMANO STEPS E6000 engine has been designed for small electric city bikes. The assistance provided is therefore important enough to carry out city shopping, commuting or even bike rides. Very quiet and versatile, this engine is the perfect solution to cope with the density of urban traffic and country roads.
Despite its weight of 3.2 kg, the Shimano E6000 power unit remains very discreet when mounted. It is probably the most compact ebike power unit on the market. Its ergonomic and watertight casing, which allows it to withstand the worst weather conditions, is fixed in the bottom bracket box with screws and bolts. What’s most surprising about the Shimano E6000 engine is how easy it is to handle. Thanks to a highly sensitive system and an electronic transmission (Di2), assistance is provided immediately from the first pedal stroke by the user. It allows what is called “natural pedaling”. Indeed, the level of assistance adapts according to the obstacles encountered by the cyclist and there are no abrupt cuts when the engine is started.
Thanks to its 3 assistance modes and numerous options, you will also experience the “intelligent pedaling” of the Shimano engine. The “Automatic Shift” option allows you to automatically engage or disengage the assistance according to your speed and pedalling cadence. In short, the engine offers an improved driving experience and you gain in comfort. So you no longer have to worry about hilly or undulating terrain. The E6000 drive unit delivers an output torque of 50 Nm at 250W. This central engine runs on a 36V Lithium-Ion battery with a capacity of 418Wh/504Wh. The journeys you can make with this combination can be up to 85 km in BOOST mode.
Thanks to its years of experience in ebike, Shimano is able to offer a reliable engine like the E6000. The high quality of the parts is there. This drive unit has an exceptionally long service life, even in intensive daily use. To improve its performance, some cyclists prefer to remove the speed limiter. The BadassBox 4 release kit for Shimano motors must be used for this purpose. Placed directly outside the compartment, the device allows you to benefit from assistance even beyond the regulatory limit (25km/h). Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
