The entire eONE-FORTY all-aluminium range is now powered by the latest EP8 motor from Shimano. This modern power unit brings a long list of upgrades and changes to the table that elevate the eONE-FORTY to the next level. The EP8 unit delivers a maximum power output of 85 Nm, which is an increase of 15 Nm from the previous E8000 unit. This improves the performance on extreme terrain as well as lifting up the other support levels, making them universally more capable and more fun to use. Paired with the high-capacity Shimano 630 Wh or Simplo 750 Wh batteries, the EP8 system delivers a huge range extension, making it easier to cruise for longer or do more runs.
Further to that, the power unit has lost approx. 300 g in weight, has further improved its heat-resistance, allowing the rider to go harder for longer, is quieter and smaller and has managed to achieve a 36% reduction in drag, making cruising about the cut-out speed even easier. All this helps to deliver smooth, direct power to ensure that the rider is always in complete control while experiencing a natural ride feel.
