The BMC Roadmachine AMP e-bike series has been launched. All the pedelecs are equipped with a lightweight Mahle X20 Ultracompact Sport Hub Drive Unit; the lightest bike in the range weighs 11.8 kg (~26.0 lbs). The motor can assist you at speeds up to 32 kph (~20 mph), and the battery provides up to 140 km (~87 miles) range.

BMC has released a new e-bike range, the Roadmachine AMP; three bikes are available, named ONE, TWO and THREE. The pedelecs use the Mahle X20 Ultracompact Sport Hub Drive Unit, which the company claims is the lightest e-bike motor on the market.

The rear-mounted motor delivers up to 25 Nm of torque with 250 W pedal assistance, with a maximum speed of 25 kph (~16 mph) for the European version and 32 kph (~20 mph) for the US version. There are a variety of power modes to choose from, including an Eco mode, or you can opt to ride the bike without using the electric drivetrain. A small LED-backlit module indicates the assistance level.

The Mahle iX530, a 350 Wh battery pack, is stored inside the frame, though it is easy to remove. The battery provides up to 140 km (~87 miles) of range with 3,000 m (~9,843ft) of elevation. You can purchase an optional 172 Wh range extender for an extra 50% range. The battery can charge fully in 3.5 hours, or from 20% to 100% in 2 hours.

The cables are mostly routed internally, making the bike more streamlined. The lightest pedelec in the range weighs 11.8 kg (~26.0 lbs), and the e-bike supports tire widths up to 33 mm; the pedelec comes with 28 mm tires as standard. You can now buy the BMC Roadmachine AMP ONE and TWO e-bikes in Europe starting from 6,499 CHF (~US$6,803). The model THREE will launch in Europe in August, while the American market can expect the model TWO to be available in November.
