About the Raleigh Motus Tour Plus
Relax and enjoy the ride
The Motus Tour Plus - in the same vein as the Gazelle stepthrough bikes that we sell - is built to offer maximum comfort and stability for long leisure rides and cycle holidays, or indeed any time you want a relaxed ride. The bike has a low centre of gravity, good suspension, and a tall, European-style 28inch wheel. All of this gives the rider the ability to sit very upright and yet remain confidently in control of the bike. A bike ride should be a chance to relax and breath, and the Motus Tour Plus gives you that chance.
Intuitive and Smooth
What you'll especially like is the combination of hub gears, and Active Line Plus motor. Both allow for a smooth, easy acceleration and intuitive cycling. Both these components are essentially maintainence-free. When you book in for your annual e-bike service, the workshop technician will re-index the gears and update the motor software; other than that, simply ride and enjoy.
The Tour Plus is in the same category as the Gazelle stepthrough bikes in terms of capability, reliability and comfort, and while it doesn't have the same level of components and luxury feel of its Dutch cousins, what you get in return is good value for money. A bike like this under £2500 is a steal.
