How to Reset Bosch Electric Bike – Battery, Display – DIY

Electric bikes nowadays are piquing the interest of people and are replacing traditional manual bikes. Manufacturers like Bosch are known for their great electric bikes with unique features in the world of e-bikes. Due to their durable, reliable equipment, they have achieved a dominant reputation in the mid-drive e-bikes. Bosch does not manufacture bikes. However, they produce conversion kits.

The conversion kit includes parts or components that transform a traditional bike into an electric bike. After installing the conversion kit, you may want to change or reset some of the battery and time, display setting, etc. In this review, I will show you how you can reset the settings of the Bosch electric bike. You must know which kind of Bosch electric bike controller, displays, and motor you are using since each e-bike has a different way of resetting.

There are five options such as Intuvia, Nyon, Purion, Cobi, and Kiox. Out of these five, intuvia is a standard onboard computer with a Bosch motor system. It offers preliminary information, and you can scroll through the information button pretty effortlessly. It does not feature GPS, Bluetooth, mapping, and wifi connectivity as it is a cycle computer.

However, it does include a micro USB port. In comparison to Intuvia, Purion Bosch e-bike onboard computer is the simplest and comes with minimalist features. A controller on the left handlebar is present, which shows basic information. Mountain electric bikes usually fall under Purion Bosch e-bike.
