Raleigh Motus & Captus Product Review

Here are a couple of videos showing the Raleigh Motus and Captus models with hub and derailleur gears. The Bosch activeline system powers these bikes and the software it runs is updateable as are some of the hardware components (for example Bosch Nyon satnav upgrade). The Raleigh Motus is one of our most popular models and ticks many boxes for our customers. We have this model in multiple specs and sizes in our Shoreham ebike showroom and Bosch ebike service centre in Sussex. Please call us for further details, we are open 7 days a week.

One of the main reasons I love the Raleigh Motus and Captus models is the Bosch system, it’s resilience and ability to be software updated is testimony to Bosch’s ‘Invented for Life’ philosophy. We have had customers purchase Motus’ when they were first released in 2014 and have since benefitted from many software updates improving their riding experience, here are an example of a few Bosch software updates we have loaded onto the Motus & Captus over the last 3 years:

  • Service reminders: to ensure your bike is regularly cared for
  • Gear change recommendation: to give a longer battery range
  • Key number save space: In case you lose your keys and need a replacement cut
  • Extra torque from the motor: More power in the highest power mode

These are all examples of how our customer’s bikes have got better with age instead of the usual expectation of a product getting more out of date over time. These software updates are performed when you by the bike from us so that you get an up to date machine with the latest software systems on the battery, motor and head unit.

Another great reason to buy a Raleigh Motus or Captus is that the Bosch system is actually also hardware upgradeable if you want it to be. We have had customers change the Intuvia controls to a Bosch Nyon satellite navigation display for example, or the streamlined Purion display.
