Gazelle has just launched its latest electric commuter bike, the Medio T9 City. The electric bike uses a mid-drive motor from one of the most popular suppliers in the industry, but without the typical high price.
Powered by a Bosch Active Line motor, the Gazelle Medio T9 City electric bicycle powers the rear wheel through a 9-speed Shimano Alivio derailleur.
Bosch-powered e-bikes typically aren’t cheap. In fact, they’re downright expensive.
Prices vary, but $4K is a pretty typical number. Prices go up even higher with fancy components and fancier brand names on the tubes.
That might not sound very “low-cost” to anyone unfamiliar with the e-bike industry.
But to put that in perspective, many hub motor e-bikes approach that price level despite having simpler, lower cost drivetrains.
