VR46 E-MTB LIMITED
The myth of the Number 46.
VR46 E-MTB LIMITED is the full suspension enduro e-bike produced in only 46 pieces, numbered and signed by Valentino Rossi.
Performances are even more competitive thanks to the wireless and made in carbon components, which elevate a bike that already offers smooth pedalling and excellent control on descents and corners. The e-bike uses a “Flip Chip” system allowing changes to the geometry of the e-bike in order to adapt to road conditions and overcome all types of obstacles. It is powered by the Bosch Performance Line CX, PowerTube battery and it is fitted with the Kiox 300 display, the Bosch smart system offering a connected, fun and flexibly adaptable riding experience.
The CRANKBROTHERS Synthesis E-mtb wheels are made in carbon and are optimized to endure heavy weights. The Ohlins fork and shock absorber offers optimal tractions and control even in case of smaller bumps. The SRAM electronic groupset uses wireless technology and makes it possible to customise the shifting through the AXS User App. The OCHAIN system removes pedal kick back for an easier smoother ride.
Performance Line CX (250W 36V 85N-m) is a powerful and dynamic drive system that provides ease of use and a unique pedalling feel to push the rider to the limit, for even more fun on technically demanding terrain. The maximum torque of 85N-m significantly improves ride behaviour, particularly at low pedalling frequencies, acceleration is quicker and starting on sloping terrain is noticeably easier.
In the BOSCH Intelligent e-Bike System, the drive unit is fully networked with the other installed components and, through the eBike Flow app, additional digital functions can be utilised and the E-MTB can be continuously updated.
The PowerTube 750 (750Wh) is the most powerful and durable version of the BOSCH PowerTube series of integrable lithium-ion batteries designed for long and demanding trail climbs and adventures.
The Kiox 300 cyclocomputer is the LCD display for the BOSCH Intelligent e-Bike System, intuitively operated via the LED Remote Control Unit, extremely compact and with an easy-to-read, splash-proof and dust-proof colour screen. Fully networked in the Intelligent e-Bike System, it continuously receives new functions via the eBike Flow app.
The LED Remote control unit connects the E-MTB to the eBike Flow app; extremely ergonomic and intuitive, it provides easy access to all important riding data while keeping the rider’s hands firmly on the handlebars. Thanks to the intelligent system, the LED Remote enables autonomous updates for the E-MTB.
New RXF36 m.2 fork is the result of a reworking of the proven TTX 18 damping from the DH Race fork to offer optimum traction and control on trails and enduro race courses. The TTX18 cartridge kit features a trail-optimized 18mm piston that now adds ultra-sensitive tracking over small bumps to the superbly capable package. 165mm air travel, with increased damping pressure bandwidth, the damping valve response and sensitivity greatly exceeds original RXF36 fork to give unrivalled traction control and ultra-consistent performance. The RXF36 m.2’s adjustment range is specifically designed for tough trails and enduro races, giving 15 clicks of low-speed compression and low-speed rebound for total suspension control. For high-speed compression, you get three clicks plus a climb mode setting. Clicker dials make for easy on-the-fly, tool-free adjustments. The retuned, twin piston, three chamber air-spring system allows you to completely dial-in the level of progression – from the initial movement, right through to the bottom out.
TTX22M rear shock delivers great performance and enables you to attack the toughest sections faster and harder than you ever thought possible. Designed to soak up even the most challenging downhill tracks, the TTX22M shock also provides excellent pedal efficiency over flat and uphill sections. Its twin tube design allows the gas pressure to consistently backup the low-pressure side of the piston to keep it at a controlled level. This ensures a highly consistent damping performance and an instant suspension response for outstanding bike control and unbeatable tire traction over any kind of terrain. Super simple to set up, the low and high-speed compression and rebound damping are externally adjustable for easy tuning on-the-fly. The TTX22M Trunnion allows riders to fit a longer shock within a more compact frame area.
Modern wireless SRAM AXS™ technology enables electronic shifting communication between the GX Eagle system’s controller and rear derailleur. The GX Eagle AXS™ controller, through its proven ergonomic shift buttons, ensures precise and effortless shifting in the roughest of terrains and uphill climbs, giving the rider access to a whole new way of customising and designing their shifting experience according to their preferences via the AXS™ app.
Modern wireless SRAM AXS™ technology enables electronic shifting communication between the controller and the rear derailleur of the GX Eagle system, perfected for the new 10-52 tooth cassette, created with a new cage that significantly improves chain control and guarantees more precise shifting while offering maximum riding stability, even on strenuous and very demanding terrain, eliminating shifting rebound and making the drivetrain smoother. Improved and repositioned fixing system for greater strength, as well as allowing the rear wheel to be mounted and removed easily and the chain to be installed quickly. The GX Eagle AXS™ 12-speed rear derailleur, pre-coupled to the controller, guarantees precise, fast and silent shifting, powered by the supplied eTap AXS™ battery, removable and rechargeable through the eTap AXS™ Powerpack, to guarantee a range of up to 25 hours of use.
The new SRAM Eagle 10-52 tooth cassette was designed for the most demanding riders and allows the E-MTB to play with the 12-speeds available, tackling even the toughest climbs without too much difficulty. In addition to the extended range of ratios, this cassette uses Full Pin technology, which provides a light but strong permanent joint between the steel sprockets using high-strength stainless steel pins.
Universal Derailleur Hanger, designed and optimised for use with SRAM rear derailleurs, in addition to improving drivetrain performance by increasing shifting precision. Equipped with a protection system that allows the dropout to rotate in the event of strong impacts to save the rear derailleur and the dropout itself from damage, and with a ramp that is positioned between the cassette and the frame to save the latter in the event that the chain should fall off the smallest sprocket, thus preventing it from jamming into the frame and damaging it.
Chain for 12-speed single chainring system (10-52) with a narrow profile to allow for larger crossovers and to allow for a flatter outer plate, smoother chain riveting and superior overall strength. Equipped with ultra-smooth inner links with no edge with straight angle to reduce friction and ensure quieter performance and excellent durability. Power Lock release system.

OCHAIN-E is the first active spider designed specifically for E-MTB, patented in Italy, which, by dissociating the suspension forces from the transmission, in addition to reducing chain pull and allowing the shock absorber to work without a contrasting force, providing the cyclist with sensation of fluid riding (“chainless”), it is able to perceive the force of pedaling or that of simple support, avoiding unnecessary efforts to the engine when it is not required. The OCHAIN-E installed on the VR46 E-MTB Limited, specially configured for the BOSCH 52mm offset e-bike system supplied with elastomers set to allow a fixed 9° of free backward rotation of the crank arms, is ready for use.
CODE™ RSC is SRAM’s more powerful breaking system, specially designed for the toughest MTB disciplines,thanks to wider 4-piston aluminium callipers, dedicated to Gravity to provide real, usable control on the trail. SwingLink e Lever Pivot Bearings technologies ensure smooth and progressive use of the controls, while the 30% additional volume ensures more power in the most extreme conditions, more intensive use and high speeds, allowing less force to be used for stopping with increased stopping masses.
Heat Shield technology decreases the transfer of heat from the pad to its body during braking, for improved high temperature management.
