I’m sure many of us are wondering how long our EP8RS can last.
This isn’t a scientific collection of data, thread but more of a nice to know how far riders have been able to ride without replacement.
I’ll start with mine, 1600miles no failures recorded… yet 🤞

2,800km in 10 months without a glitch, and unlocked full power with STunlocker as soon as I bought it.

6700 km in just under 2 years got the dreaded E010 fault couple of weeks ago, awaiting word from the dealer :(

For the most part its been awesome, just issues with creaking suspension/motor that has been problematic to completely solve.

I can resolve the creaking... just not forever :D

Creak creak, strip-down the suspension/linkages/etc re-torque the little tool, bit of grease on the spacers and bolt heads, put back together, silence. Ride, ride, ..... creak..... repeat. At the end of the day it's a 15 minute job tops.... so hardly a massive thing.

I'm going to fit the 23-24 2 piece linkage next time i strip it down and see how that does instead.

Day after I started this thread… I check my Rise for an ongoing creak, and turns out that I have a major crack in the lower chainstay….. that will teach me to post something like this:(
Hopefully the warranty process is pretty quick.

Interested to hear what the clicking noise turns out to be. My motor has clicked for quite some time. I keep riding it.

It's been faultless, but...


Just dropped it off at dealer for diagnostics due to E01020 errors :(
3 weeks later, FOC warranty replacement motor has just arrived at my main dealer :) Quite pleased as it was over 4 months outside of warranty

However, as it's a stock new EP8 motor it doesn't have the Orbea RS firmware already on it. 🤦‍♂️

Dealer will be getting Orbea to remotely flash this onto the new motor, and only then are they stating I'll get 2yrs warranty on it.

No indication/feedback on the actual cause of the motor failure :confused:

E1010 failure on first after approx 4000 km, replaced under warranty, second one going strong (touch wood) after 2000km

I am doing circa 2000km per year and after three years only the original frame, suspension, dropper, front wheel and brake levers remain.

Everything else has been replaced going from XTR to XT along the way.

Great bike but once fully paid off not sure I'd go with Orbea again
