BM Helio 650B Plus (2017)
BM-Helio exemplifies the BMEBIKES standard for maximum traction, stability, and balance. Components feature front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, lock-out fork suspensions, and most importantly, the highly sought after 650B PLUS size tires that provide all the advantages of 29ers (frame geometry, better traction, smoother ride) without sacrificing the performance of the 26” wheel. This e-bike is a true mountain hardtail.
The BM-Helio is fast: the 36V mid-drive motor will easily take you up to 28+ miles per hour, while the 48V (off-road mode) can reach speeds of up to 35+ mph. Extremely powerful yet perfectly balanced, Helio is prepared to take you to your destination – fast.

Pedal Assist (1-5) & Thumb Throttle
3-4 Hours (plug and play)
20+ MPH (Programmable)
35+ Miles per charge (PAS 2)
Mid-Drive Engine Technology
A mid-drive engine is essentially a motor with a transmission system. Unlike hub motors that operate on a fixed (single-speed) gear, mid-drive engines drive the bicycle crank -- the bike gears effectively become the motor's transmission. As a result, mid-drive engines provide multiple power output levels for the user, along with powerful torque performance for uphill climbs.
