Noticeably peppier than competing systems, the Brose T motor is focused on a "natural" feeling power delivery and hitting the perfect balance between plenty of giddyup and efficiency to ensure great range. Brose uses the same motor for leisure, sporty and off road - the tuning is different to suit each experience.
Torque peaks at 72nm and 520 watts, beating out both the Shimano Steps city motors and the Bosch Active line. It is more on par with the Bosch Performance street motors, but gives you more power at lower pedal rpms than the Bosch, so the Brose feels more powerful off the line.
Specialized uses the T motor in the Levo, Como and Vado bikes, but calls it "Turbo 1.2" and there's an app that you can tune motor performance via bluetooth on your smartphone. If you have a Levo or Vado/Como model year 2020, you can connect to the Mission Control 2.0 app (certain older Como/Vados can be upgraded to the new TCD-W display). Raw power is exhilarating and addictive - but full power all the time can also meaning depleting your battery very quickly, so judicious use of power is something eBikers value more over time. The app allows you to custom tune the assistance levels, or use “Smart Control” to algorithmically budget your power for you based on trip time or distance. At this time the app does not work on TF (1.2S) motor systems found on the pre-2020 Vado 5 and 6.
