In keeping with its simple design, the 2023 Rise doesn't have any big controllers. Instead, it uses a simple rocker switch to switch between power modes and a sleek, inline twin LED display to show the mode quickly.
The EP8 motor in the new 2022 Rise models has a power band that is designed to make the bike feel like it's alive under you. It has a peak output of 60Nm and a smooth, responsive ride that matches your own power and cadence.
