As usual for the German manufacturer, the Charger 4 can also be customized to a great extent. All variants are accelerated by a Bosch Performance Line CX mid-drive motor. The Kiox 300 display is located on the handlebar and is operated with the convenient LED remote at the end of the handlebar. Braking is done with the help of hydraulic disc brakes from Magura, and ABS is also installed.

The basic variant, called “Touring”, which costs just under 5,000 euros, has an 11-speed Shimano gear. The higher-priced variants “Vario” (from €5,450), “GT Touring” (from €5,400) and “GT Vario” (from €5,750) are optionally available with belt drive and continuously variable hub gears.
