TQ motor and suspension stem are the headlines of BMC’s new all-road electric bike

BMC today announced the release of a new all-road electric bike, the Roadmachine 01 AMP X. This new e-bike is a premium gravel and/or road offering with some nice tech inclusions that should give an extra boost to riders who need the power assist that an e-bike brings.

It’s centered around a carbon fiber frame and fork that’s equipped with BMC’s Tuned Compliance Concept Endurance technology, which simply means the frame make-up is a little more forgiving to take the edge off the roughest of roads with added added compliance take.

The advertised overall weight of the bike is 12.9kg, while tire clearance for the frame is listed as 38mm. There are also fender mounts so you can fit full length fenders, as well as a suspension stem, integrated lights and a super light electric drive system.

BMC has chosen to equip the Roadmachine 01 AMP X with a TQ motor system, as used in the new Trek Domane + SLR. In particular, the bike is equipped with the HPR50 drive system, a small unit that integrates very neatly into the frame for a clean look. It uses harmonic pin-ring transmission – best explained with TQ’s own video (opens in new tab) – as well as a 360 watt-hour battery and a chic frame-integrated two-inch display on the top tube. The entire TQ system weighs 3.9 kg.
