'Think two-wheeled electric vehicle,' says Benno, and we couldn't agree more! Benno continues, 'the longer I design ebikes the more I realize they are less bikes and more two-wheeled electrical vehicles. That means they will continue to take on their own looks, identity and most importantly their own purpose. The electric motor changes how bikes ride, what you can do with them and what they are allowed to look like. Fat, small tires are no longer slow and hard to ride; they are fun, grippy and offer lots of cushy suspension. Low step through frames are cool and convenient. High handlebars allow you to sit upright with a clear view of the road. Bigger saddles are comfy and make you want to ride further. The RemiDemi was designed to shed those old and outdated beliefs. It's a totally new breed of ebikes with a fun yet sturdy and stable ride that gives you more control. The unique and iconic lines of the pragmatic frame design give it a fresh yet timeless and simple look. And of course being a Benno it has our trademarked Etility® Design which means it can carry more cargo and can easily be accessorized with differ- ent Benno front trays, Yepp® child seats and most Rack- time® baskets, trays and bags.
We got a chance to test the RemiDemi at Eurobike 2019, and it is a phenomenal ride. Nimble, smooth, unique, and tons of fun.

Jodie's Eurobike 2019 recap (read the full recap here): The real star of the Benno show was their yet-to-be-named e-bike (now the RemiDemi) that will be arriving Spring of 2020. We had the chance to test ride this beauty, and it was a dream! The unique frame design, combined with the smooth Bosch system, offered a ride quality that was fun and nimble and also stable. We will be looking forward to their arrival in the Spring, that's for sure.
This is a fantastic bike, solid and well built and very comfortable. It is expensive though so maybe 1 point deducted for that and from my point of view as a person with a bad right thumb , hard to down-shift. That is maybe not something would bother most people though . I love the bike overall, it is very comfortable for a shorter person
The remi demi has been perfect for tackling our hills in the neighborhood. It powers through like a little beast. We love it!
