Bosch Powertube 750Wh battery. New connector, new charger port.

Powertube 750Wh weight 4.4KG (approx 900g heavier than the 625Wh, which is approx. 3.5 kilograms)

Same motor hardware for 2022 (but with new electronics / fittings) - Performance CX Gen4. Can now use the FLOW app to customise the modes.

Will the new Kiox work on 2020 and 2021 motors?

Negative. They claim that they had to start on a new system from the ground up.
Well done Bosch, you’ve just Spesh’d all existing owners.
To make the motor that isn’t even 2 years old effectively obsolete is quite an achievement.

It doesn’t surprise me at all that it’s not backwards compatible unfortunately. Keep the wheels of consumerism rolling

Shame. The controller (not the kiox) and app is all you’d need and I’d be happy to pay to upgrade if I could

Saying that though, the new controller looks larger than the current Purion, has blingy bright LED’s (prefer LCD) and doesn’t display your speed

I’d agree except Bosch don’t sell bikes. They have frozen out a massive revenue stream of people with nearly new bikes who aren’t ready, can’t justify or can’t afford a new bike bike but could be tempted to upgrade to get better connectivity or adjustability on their current bike.

True. I’m sure they could have designed backwards compatibility though and made the decision not to

Thinking about it, if current Bosch motors were capable of customising the power modes, all I’d do is increase the power on all modes and as result decrease overall range, so sometimes less is more!

Is new CX motor and 750Wh battery still 36Volts?
If it is 48V, thats the answer why is not backwards compatible.
