Here is a link to the European Emotion website and the North American Emotion website.  Please note that Pete’s Electric Bikes is the North American distributor and that is not my company.  It’s just a coincidence that they choose that cool name for their company!  You can also purchase Emotion bikes in the US at The New Wheel.

The Emotion Max 700 is ready for the road!

The Emotion Max 700 that I rode had the Panasonic 36V 12ah lithium ion battery which is an upgrade from the standard 36V 8ah pack.

The new 36 volt Panasonic batteries are a little wider than the traditional Panasonic 26 volt batteries.

The Emotion Max 700 has a pretty simple display. High, medium and low pedal assist settings. This electric bike is pedal assist only (no throttle).

The Emotion Max 700 comes with the SR Suntour Swing suspension fork to take the edge off bumps and cracks in the road.

The Emotion Max 700 comes with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes front and rear.

    Hey there. Thanks for the article, but where have all the images gone? ;-)
    I’ve had the pleasure to ride a BH emotion through the City of Berlin (Germany) and I can highly recommend to lend one on a dry & sunny day.

    This sportive electric bike will definitely put a smile on your face without making you feel lazy at all. The fitness challenge is to keep up the great max speed once the motor assistance has faded at top speed.

    Cheers.

    Hello,
    I have the possibility to by a Max 700 from last year wich has only 8 gears on the rear derailleur.

    11-32 instead of 11-34 What is the difference up-hill?

      Hi Hubert, There really is not much difference. The 34 tooth cog will make climbing really steep hills a little easier. I wouldn’t worry about it.

    Great looking bike. This would be the perfect bike for up here in the hill country. Good for both street and forest trails.
