Shimano EP6 EP600 2023 road test ride review
Shimano EP6 EP600 2023 Road test review Build quality
Nothing to complain about the new SHimano EP6 ebike engine is very well made, even if not very light, nor very compact, the only two of its defects that can be reported.
For the rest it is well done.
Shimano EP6 EP600 2023 Road test review group
The new Shimano EP6 2023 group is complete with everything, joins the new Cues group, and is also equipped with ABS.
Adopted in its entirety, it is possible to obtain a valid ebike, relatively cheap, but still of quality.
Shimano EP6 EP600 2023 Road test review drive
The fluidity of the pedaling and the intervention of the electric motor is extremely gradual, very fluid.
Certainly, those who will not like a dry and decisive intervention, but from the biomechanical and physiological point of view, the development of the Shimano EP6 group is remarkable.
Difficult to notice real practical differences compared to the more expensive EP8 group.
Shimano EP6 EP600 2023 Road test review Performance
Overall the new EP6 engine is fine.
Performance is in line with the best competitors and with the more expensive EP8 groupset.
We believe that his smooth and gradual intervention system will not be successful outside the city bki and trekking.
It is not a light group in absolute terms, while the different electronics and management possibilities differentiate it from the more expensive EP8.
In the end it is a rational engine, for a rational ebike.
Shimano Cues Di2 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The new Shimano EP6 2023 groupset extends the range of Shimano ebike engines downwards, with an interesting product and perfectly in line with the Shimano philosophy.
A fluid, discreet motor helps pedaling and relieves fatigue without replacing the thrust of the legs.
It almost seems that it is not there.
From a biomechanical point of view an excellent result.
It goes against the market trend, however, which wants powerful electric motors with a clearly invasive intervention.
From a physiological point of view, Shimano is right and its two engines EP8 and EP6 are a benchmark in the sector.
The Shimano EP6 is great for an e-urban bike, an e-trekking bike, an e-gravel bike, but also for an e-mtb or an e-road bike, but you need to appreciate its technical characteristics, otherwise it will be a disappointment.
