Kalkhoff looks back on a long history. Bicycles have been manufactured and sold under the Kalkhoff brand name since 1919.


  • Bosch Performance CX smart system drive with 85 Nm
  • Integrated Bosch PowerTube battery with 750 Watt hour capacity
  • Range up to 100 km*
  • Plus+: flexible all-rounder with an approved gross weight of up to 170 kg

The Kalkhoff Image 7.B Excite + 2022 Electric Bike has been packed with smart features and quality components which, when combined with a powerful Bosch motor, makes an E-Bike that will allow you to travel further and faster than ever before.

Kalkhoff have equipped the Image with a powerful Bosch Performance Line CX Smart System which can transfer up to 85Nm of power to the pedals and works alongside a high-capacity 750Wh Bosch PowerTube Li-Ion battery that boasts a range of up to 100km.

The electric bike features an Enviolo Trekking groupset which works alongside a Gates Carbondrive CDX belt which offers smooth and response shifting and requires zero maintenance. At the same time, Tektro M535 hydraulic disc brakes offer strong braking performance in both the dry and the wet.

The Kalkhoff electric bike has been packed with intelligent features. A rear rack rack is useful when carrying heavy loads, such as shopping, whilst mudguards ensure that you arrive at your destination clean and dry. Furthermore, a full lighting system enhances visibility when riding at night.

Comfort has been maximised on the 7.B Excite. A Suntour suspension fork soaks up the bumps and vibrations for a smooth ride, whilst an adjustable stem allows you to tailor the bike for the perfect fit.

What is the maximum weight for Kalkhoff bicycles and e-bikes?

The total permissible weight of our bikes is 130 kg. Bikes with “XXL” and “Plus+” in their names even offer you a load capacity of up to 170 kg. The total permissible weight is calculated using the following formula: Weight of bike + weight of cyclist + weight of additional load = 130 kg or 170 kg

How far can I get on my battery charge?

There is no universal answer to this question. There are many different factors that can affect the range. These include, for example, the assistance level, your cycling behaviour, your weight, the tyre pressure and the ground conditions.

Do I need to run down the battery completely before I charge it up again?

No. Most batteries contain lithium-ion cells and can be charged for as little time as you like. Interruptions will not damage the batteries either.

How do I charge my battery?

You can charge your battery for as little time as you like, no matter what its current charge is. Interruptions will not damage the battery either. In other words, there is no memory effect. However, you should definitely make sure that you only use the correct charging device. 

Can the battery be removed from the frame?

Yes, you can remove all batteries from the frame. 

What does maximum torque mean?

The torque (measured in Newton metres “Nm”) describes the rotation effect (or torsion) resulting from the application of force, e.g., pedalling.
If you compare motors with torques of 75 Nm and 40 Nm, a stationary start at 75 Nm is significantly faster and more pleasant than at 45 Nm. This does not include the watt output from the battery. Ultimately, the higher the maximum torque, the better the acceleration.

What are assistant levels on an e-bike?


Power assist is off


Power assist for maximum battery range and efficiency


optimised power assist for a long range


strong power assist for sports biking


maximum power assist for fast riding


improved assist for powerful approaches and a more dynamic ride (especially suited for e-mountain bikes)

Assistance levels can vary according to the manufacturer, both in terms of the number and choice.

What is walk assist?

Some manufacturers insist that walk assist should only be used when you want to push your bike. It is easily activated using an external switch or button. This is generally on the handlebars of your e-bike. As a result, it is not necessary to pedal in order to move the e-bike.
