For the City and Beyond
The Focus Planet² 5.9 is an expertly engineered and styled electric bike. It features a Bosch Performance Line motor and a 625Wh Powertube battery. At a good, mid price, you get a beautifully finished frame and good spec components.
Focus is a German brand with a great reputation for road and off road performance bikes.
The Focus Planet² 5.9 comes with the latest Bosch Performance Line motor. This offers assistance of up to 300% in Turbo mode. That’s an extra 3 of you helping you up the hills! As with other Bosch motors, it allows for 4 different levels of assistance and you can turn the motor off as well. We believe that the Bosch motor is still the best in the market.
The battery is the Bosch 625 watt hour Powertube battery – neatly contained within the frame, but still removable. It will give you a realistic, real-world range of 60-65 miles (using a variety of assistance levels and riding on varying terrain).
The display on the handlebars is the Bosch Purion.

This a bike primarily for road use, but with good Suntour front suspension and tough Schwalbe Energiser tyres, the Planet² 5.9 will happily tackle tracks, light trails and gravel.
The gears are all Shimano, Alivio rear derailleur, Alttus shifters with a 9-speed 12-36T cassette.
The brakes are Shimano too – hydraulic MT200 levers and calipers.
To complete the practical features of the Planet² 5.9, you get a Racktime Snap-it rack, Litemove lights that run from the main battery, mudguards and sidestand. The handlebars are complemented by Focus Ergo Comfort grips.
The Focus Planet² 5.9 is a very good looking and capable bike. A combination of good components, large battery and strong Bosch motor makes it both a great commuter and also a great tourer.
