The E-Inception AM 8.7.2 GTF comes across without much of a fuss. Sleek lines and the classic, four-hinged rear end leave an understated impression.
In the automotive and motorcycle world, Japan has always had a reputation for being a breeding ground for excellent engines. Shimano is doing its utmost to live up to this reputation in the e-bike world with the EP8 engine. Steep ramps are no problem for the Shimano motor. Additionally, the Shimano EP8 stands out with a natural riding feeling and a gentle power delivery. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-Inception AM 8.7.2 GTF in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

Carbon frames are rather the exception in the price range of about 5500€. With the carbon fibre chassis, Stevens thus sets clear accents compared to the aluminium competitors. In comparison, it's noticeable that the direct competition mounts better chassises, thus offering significantly more control. At the brakes, Stevens middle class four pistons brakes by Shimano are used. The components and the shifting seem less important for Stevens. The components used here have a clear potential for improvement after a view at the competitors. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward.
