Dual battery, 750Wh CAPACITY, Rockshox Lyrik Forks, Brose Drive S Motors, Shimano XT Di2 DRIVE TRAIN. The 2018 line-up for BULLS electric bikes sound like A LOT OF BULL

We’ve surely all heard about Specialized’s eBike fleet for 2018 by now right? We thought that the eMTB world could not get any wilder, but BULLS have added fuel to the fire!

Much like Specialized, BULLS have revealed a multitude of eBikes to be released next year. Starting from a cool $5,700AUD (converted from €3,899) and maxing at $9,500AUD (converted from €6,499), BULLS have compiled an arsenal of serious eMTB bikes for a range of needs and budgets.

There are 3 series that will be released, the E-Core EVO, Six50 and E-Stream. Each possess their own sub-models and variants. Peep the details and specifications below.



 

E-CORE EVO SERIES

The E-Core EVO series are the higher end models featuring the dual battery down tube design to house 2 Shimano juice packs. From factory, the bikes come standard with only one 375Wh offering, whilst the two 750Wh total comes as an upgrade. If riders choose to only go with one battery pack, the other slot can be used for storage. Welcome to the 21st century people!

The batteries are supplied by BMZ, a German company, and also offer power to the Shimano Di2 group set for the top tier EVO EN Di2 model. The E-Core EVOs are expected to release in February 2018.
