The Merida eSpresso CC 600 EQ Electric Hybrid Bike offers the rugged ability and comfort of the builds on the incredible platform of the eSpresso CC 400 EQ with Shimano’s class-leading EP8 drivetrain. Indeed, it benefits from Merida’s unique working partnership with Shimano offering an integrated battery in the down tube for a reduction in weight and increased protection for the battery. Similarly, Merida has focused heavily on redesigning the eSpresso CC to be their most comfortable touring model yet! It benefits from a greater maximum tyre width thanks to the choice of an uprated Suntour MOBIE fork as well as widened seat and chainstays of the rear triangle. While the eSpresso CC 600’s features Shimano’s EP8 mid-drive motor for unparalleled torque and smooth, refined performance that redefines Touring on all terrains!
Merida has designed the eSpresso CC models to tame the great outdoors all while offering riders a luxurious ride in the process. So it should come as no surprise that Merida has upgraded the premium eSpresso CC 600 EQ with Suntour’s new e-bike exclusive MOBIE fork which offers a handy 75mm of travel and improved compression! Equally, a Merida Expert suspension seatpost has been installed to offer increased sensitivity and comfort for small ruts, bumps and general surface feedback! On top of this, the eSpresso CC features double-wall 27.5″ rims wrapped in Maxxis Crossmark II tyres for grip in all weather conditions, whether it’s a dry and dusty gravel path or a muddy trail you’ll have grip at all times. While the durable wide-range Shimano Deore drivetrain offers smooth and efficient shifting.
When it comes to frame design, it’s hard to pass up the eSpresso CC’s ultra-low step-through frame which offers riders a lower centre of gravity for increased stability and thus rider confidence. Moreover, it makes mounting and dismounting an absolute breeze! Naturally, it’d be hard to highlight the Merida eSpresso CC’s comfort and versatility without mentioning the unbelievable Shimano EP8 mid-drive motor which is the real point of difference for the eSpresso CC 600 EQ model. It offers a ridiculous 85Nm of torque on tap through 5 different assistance modes so you don’t have to worry about steep hills or tired legs. While the high capacity 630Wh battery ensures you have an average off-road range between 100 and 150km (on-road expect 150 – 200km!) making the eSpresso CC perfect for weekend bike packing adventures or your daily commute!
The Merida eSpresso CC wouldn’t be a true tourer without the extensive list of options that come as standard. To begin with, Sunnywheel SW-FA311-65A fenders are installed to prevent water, dirt, and grime from being flicked or splashed onto you, ensuring you remain dry and clean throughout your journey. The all-new Merida Massload carrier comes installed as standard, offering an incredible 27kg payload making it perfect for a weekend trip away. While a rear light has been neatly integrated so you’re always visible, regardless of the lighting conditions! Next, you’ll find an Abus Frame Lock located below your seat so you can comfortably lock your eSpresso’s rear wheel so you can comfortably leave your bike outside a cafe or pub when you’re out on the road! Up front, a Herrmans H-Black MR4 front light has been installed to light the path ahead and increase your visibility to other road users. Finally, Merida has equipped eSpresso CC with dual-piston hydraulic disc brakes as standard for assured performance and control regardless of weather or terrain.
The Merida eSpresso CC 600 EQ is the ultimate tourer designed to help you conquer the great outdoors and truly enjoy the world around you. With the amazing Shimano EP8 drivetrain, you’ll be able to power up steep mountains like never before, while the fantastic gear Merida have installed as standard and the additional equipment offered, make it perfect for weekend bikepacking trips and daily commutes! You won’t find a model that blends performance, capability or spec quite like the eSpresso CC 600 does straight out of the box!
SHIMANO EP8 DRIVE UNIT
Featuring the top-of-class EP8 Drive Unit, this bike will handle whatever you throw at it.

Even better, using the E-Tube Project App, you can customise your ride even further, making it perfect for your riding style! Ride with confidence, and ride your way.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
Disc brakes provide you with better braking performance in all conditions, unlike rim brakes which can be heavily impacted by dust and water, disc brakes maintain control in all conditions. These brakes give you confidence that you’ll stop when you need to and with a hydraulic system you will have greater control and have better feedback through your levers, hydraulic systems aren’t prone to cable stretch and self adjust as your brake pads wear down – meaning you can focus on the riding!
