BionX D-500 DV, 700C/29″ wheel, rim or disc brakes


With neck-snapping acceleration that eats up hills, the Bionx 500W D-series motors are flatter and thinner that traditional hub motors and fit neatly between the wheel spokes providing more wheel flex for greater grip and traction. A 555 watt-hour lithium battery provides up to 80 miles per charge.

bionx d series electric motor

A radical new take on the bicycle hub motor, the Bionx D series motors are flatter and thinner that traditional hub motors and fit neatly between the wheel spokes providing more wheel flex for greater grip and traction.

Mad Acceleration: By increasing the motor diameter, the tangential speed of the motor’s magnetic components is increased as well. Another benefit of an electric motor with a larger diameter – the magnetic components are placed on a larger circumference thus move at higher tangential speed producing lightning-fast acceleration.

Crazy Torque: At a peak torque of 55 Nm and a steady state torque of 25 Nm, the D-Series is aimed at the on-road and off-road rider who wants high performance and modern design in one product.  Hang on tight.

VDB (Very Dense Battery): Ride from 50 to 80 miles on a charge using the D500’s 48 volt ~11.5 amp hour (555 watt hour) configuration with Lithium Manganese Cobalt cells by Panasonic. Up to 2 hour ride time and a life of 1000 cycles. Only 8 lbs.

bionx rc3 ds2 display console

The P350 DV features a compact Bionx RC3 controller with a throttle and a Bionx DS3 Display with full color screen and Bluetooth capability (Bluetooth Module sold separately). 

The DS3 Display mounts in the center of your handlebars and is operated remotely with the intuitive RC3 Controller so you never need to take your hands off the handlebars.

Silent Power:  Unlike mid-drive systems and geared hub motors that whir and hum, the Bionx D Series electric motor isn’t just quiet – its totally silent. No one will hear you coming.

Descend with Regen: All Bionx systems come with Regenerative Braking, so when you squeeze your bike‘s brake lever, energy is sent back to the Li-Ion batteries helping them recharge.

And if you are flying down a steep hill and want some extra braking, or want a greater workout as you pedal, switch the BionX system into one of the four Generate Mode levels. You’ll feel resistance, and even more energy is returned to the battery pack.
