This top of the line BionX D 500 DV downtube mounted electric bike conversion kit focuses largely on acceleration and torque. The powerful, low-profile, sleekly designed 48v11.5Ah(555Wh) battery is ideal for narrower frames. This BionX D 500 DV’s compact power supply makes for quick recharges on the go. This new and improved conversion kit offers regenerative braking, four levels of pedal assist and regen mode for exercising or descending. The D-series motor is extremely sporty, lightweight, quiet and powerful.
Motor- The BionX D500 DV electric bike kit comes standard with a regenerative 500W nominal output, 750W peak output gearless direct drive rear hub motor. This motor is large in diameter and light in weight. The technology of the larger diameter is a major contribution to the 250% increase in power output in steady state.
Acceleration- With the increased motor diameter, the speed of the motor’s magnetic components also increase. By increasing the diameter of the motor, the magnetic components are placed on a larger circumference thus move at higher tangential speed producing exceptionally fast acceleration.
Torque- By increasing the diameter of the motor, the magnetic components are reduced using less electrical force to produce torque. The BionX D500 has a sophisticated torque sensor and offers a peak torque of 50 Nm and a stable state torque of 25 Nm.
Battery- Cycle for long distances on one single charge using the D500’s 48V 11.5Ah (555Wh) battery with Lithium Manganese Cobalt cells by Panasonic. The battery charges in less than three hours and provides you with up to two hours of ride time or 80 miles. The BionX battery is safe, stable, light, extremely compact, and has a lifespan of approximately 1000 cycles.
Console- The BionX D500 DV electric bike kit is designed to be centrally mounted on your handlebars and comes equipped with an intelligent, multifunctional, and easy-to-read BionX control console. The central mount offers easy accessibility and optimal visibility. The BionX display is considered “the brains” of the e-bike system, giving you full control of your ride. It displays such functions as speed, assist level, battery life, trip distance, and more. With a bright LCD screen you’ll be able to view your stats day or night, rain or shine. You can use the + and – buttons on the throttle to control the system’s four levels of electric assist and four levels of regen mode. The four levels of electric assist seamlessly work with you, offering a safe and natural-feeling ride. To change motor settings while riding, simply push the large, glove friendly keys on the handlebar control pad. This ensures safety and stability, while still allowing you to control the motor for optimal performance.
Pedal Assist- The D500 features four levels of pedal assist allowing you to accurately choose how much help you wish to receive from the motor.
Throttle- The BionX D500 features an extremely responsive throttle mode. As a safety feature, the throttle cannot be activated while the bike is standing still. By using your throttle only when needed (steep hills/ a boost), you can preserve your battery’s lifespan. Be smart with your throttle use, and you’ll get the most out of your battery!
Regenerative Braking- 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 traveling 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.
Regen Mode- The D500 offers four levels of regen mode. This is great for trickle charging your battery, exercising by adding resistance to your ride, or descending.
Range- The BionX D500 DV utilizes an extremely efficient 555Wh battery with a range of up to 80 miles under optimal conditions. Range will always vary depending on use of drive mode, how much you pedal, the type of terrain, and the rider’s weight.
Top Speed- Like most electric bikes sold in the United States, the BionX D500 DV kit has a top speed of 20mph. There are ways to remove this speed limit for use on private roadways, however the jury is still out on how this will impact your Warranty. Until we get an official word from BionX, we’re going to err on the side of caution. Please contact us to learn about the concerns with making this modification.
Mount Location- The BionX D500 DV comes with a downtube mountable battery. A downtube mounted battery tends to be more balanced than a rear rack mounted battery. The battery itself is easily installed and can be removed within seconds.
Wheel Compatibility- The BionX D500 has been designed mainly for hardtail mountain bikes and sport & performance bikes. With this being said, it is available in 650b/27.5” and 700c/29” tire sizes. The D500 DV kit also comes with Spoke to Center (STC) Technology; longer spokes enable the wheel to flex more. This means more comfort, more grip and more traction on the trail.
Warranty- BionX offers a solid two year warranty on the battery and motor.
