Ruff Cycles teamed up with none other than Aaron Bethlenfalvy to develop this bike. Aaron has been designing bikes since 1994 and was previously Global Vice President of Design for brands such as GT, Cannondale, Schwinn, Nirve, Felt and Mongoose.
Equipped with a Bosch Active Line drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes and a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain, the Lil'Buddy is ready for all your adventures. The 500 Wh battery from Bosch offers a range of 50 - 140 km and needs only 2.5 hours to be fully charged.
The LIL'BUDDY, like the Ruffians, is assembled in our own production facility in Regensburg, Germany. The frames are welded by hand in our own frame factory in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Bosch Active Line
The Active Line is the drive for all those who attach great importance to an elegant appearance. Due to its compact size, the drive unit can be optimally integrated into the bicycle frame. The reduced weight and the low centre of gravity ensure safe handling. Without disturbing extraneous noise, you experience pure riding pleasure with gentle support up to 25 km/h. And if you want to ride faster, you benefit from minimal pedal resistance above 25 km/h. The Active Line is also available with a back pedal function.
500 Wh battery
The Bosch PowerPack 500 offers a reliable and long-lasting energy storage system without memory effect and with minimal self-discharge. The rack battery version is used for wheels with a low entry point. Regardless of where the battery is mounted, it can be easily removed and charged at the nearest power outlet. As a rack battery, the Bosch PowerPack 500 is only available in combination with Active Line and Active Line Plus.
Design meets functionality: Purion is the minimalist on-board computer for anyone who wants to get a good look at the handlebars, whether for city or country use. While riding, you get all the information you need at the touch of a button while keeping both hands on the handlebars. Five different driving modes offer you the right support in every situation.
