The 2015 electric bikes are starting to roll out!

OHM Cycles just announced their new and improved 2015 Sport XS750 multi-purpose trail bike.

It features the new 500 watt BionX D Series rear hub motor that has 250% more power than the BionX P and S Series motors.

Their new 48V 11.6ah (555 watt hour) lithium battery is mounted low and in the center of the frame for balanced weight distribution.

OHM Cycles is using a hydroformed aluminum frame along with the relatively new 27.5″ wheel size for improved rolling efficiency.

    I test rode the XS750 today at Seattle Electric Bike and was WOWED to the max! The young guy half my age who rode along from the shop was on an EZ Motion and could not keep up with me going up a steep hill, not that I was trying to show off, which I wasn’t.

    The demo unit had the knobby tires but felt fine on the street. The ride home on my 2012 Ohm Urban XU700 was one of thought about how nice the new motor would be on Seattle’s mean steep streets.
