ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road test review Build quality
The BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 has a high cost, partly justified by its build quality and technology.
The available sizes are the classic four basic ones, as well as the 360wh battery is certainly not the top.
Even the 50Nm power engine is not the top.
As for other competitors, all this was sought to have a light bicycle, but in the end we are talking about 16 kg and 15,000 Euros; we believe that the "light of reason" has long been lost, but as long as people buy ...
The general build quality is still valid, but the price remains high and not very justified, in objective terms. Competitors don't do better ...
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road Test Review Frame
New frame, new geometries, new everything.
BMC's new emtb is in fact a clone of the muscle version, with only a few differences.
The advantage of the new TQ System engine is that it is light and compact and allows you to create a frame that is very close to a muscle bike.
On the other hand, this engine also has its negative aspects: low torque, small battery, reduced autonomy, high price.
The frame is still very well made.
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review
The range of assemblies is, as BMC tradition, complete and wide, the prices remain high, but basically for those who want this model, the choice is not lacking.
The construction and assembly quality, in each version, is high.
The value for money is still within the sufficiency.
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road test Comfort review
With 120mm suspension, comfort is certainly high and this is undoubtedly also due to the quality of the components.
Having said that, the ride comfort is excellent.
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road Test Review Guide
The BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 is one of the lightest full ebikes on the market.
The trend of the so-called light e-bikes, with weights close to 16kg, which are not very little and the money they cost is not even a little, but it is the new frontier to "drag" the undecided bikers to the electric.
In fact, the dynamic behavior of these ebikes is not unlike a similar muscular mtb and the average user will hardly be able to grasp the differences.
The new BMC FourStroke AMP LT joins the batch of light ebike with a high ease of driving, excellent traction uphill, stability and safety downhill.
To be a 120mm travel bike the weight is still high, but not far away, we appreciate the ease of driving uphill and less the additional weight downhill.
In the end, the balance is positive because the ebike is easier to ride uphill and flat and goes just as well downhill.
The performance on the plains is valid.
Excellent braking and valid suspension.
An e-mtb suitable for any route, valid on the flat, downhill and uphill.
A well-tuned frame emerges on everything, manageable the right, without being inaccurate.
Safe and always with predictable reactions.
Easy for the novice and with a high limit for the more experienced biker.
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road test review Performance
If we make a comparison with a muscular mtb, the BMC ebike is heavy and difficult to push without the aid of the motor.
The high weight, the reduced power and the not high autonomy are the weak points of all light ebikes and even this BMC FourStroke AMP LT does not differ from this concept.
If you are looking for an emtb that goes alone, these are not the right models.
In fact, getting off more powerful and heavier e-bikes you can feel the difference clearly.
This is obviously when one only relies on the thrust of the engine.
In reality, however, it takes a good workout to be fast with these ebikes.
Downhill is fine, like the muscular FourStroke, uphill is just as good and suffers a little in the pedaled sections.
Overall, however, it is a competitive ebike in its category.
In absolute terms, however, it is very good downhill and uphill, barely heavy on the flat.
ebike BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The BMC FourStroke AMP LT 2023 demonstrates how light ebikes are close to muscular mtbs, but also very different from normal and not always better ebikes.
The reduced weight benefits on descents, but the lower engine power and the reduced range slow down uphill and in the stretches where greater assistance is needed when pushing the pedals.
The high price is obviously another negative point.
The BMC FourStroke AMP LT is also an ebike very close to a muscular mtb, with the addition of an "electric help".
Those used to other ebikes might find it not very "emotional".
Similarly, those who come from a muscular mtb might find it very effective.
A beautiful ebike, very effective and high performance, expensive, but valid.
