BMC launches new premium e-road bike, the Roadmachine 01 AMP X 

Swiss bike builder BMC has launched its latest e-bike model, the Roadmachine 01 AMP X, which features a state-of-the-art motor system.

The new electrically-assisted Roadmachine features a brand new motor designed by TQ, a cycling technology company that developed advanced systems for a variety of e-bikes, from Trek to BMC ranges.

This new bike features the TQ-HPR50 motor, providing a powerful, light and near-silent ride. The drive unit is seamlessly integrated in the frame for an uncompromised look, but with powerful support. The US version of the bike offers assistance up to 28mph (45kmh), while the global version will assist up to speeds of 25mph (40kmh).

Designed for multi-surface riding, this new BMC comes with 35mm tyres with clearance for a maximum tyre width of 38mm. 

The Roadmachine 01 AMP X frame is the lightest e-bike in its class weighing just 3.9kg.
