The New 2017 Optibike R15

  • New Digital Display
  • New 48V 22.5Ah 1080Wh Higher Capacity Battery

Industry Leading Power and Torque

The 48V drive system with a massive 175N-m of torque accelerates even faster with a wider power band, letting the rider attain speeds of up to 33 MPH. The R15 electric bike has 1500 watts of continuous power and peak power of over 2500 watts.

Built for Performance

The R15 is built for performance at every turn and will wheelie in the first 5 gears and climb any hill due to the huge 175N-m torque output of the MBB (2-3 times more torque than other electric bikes).

Only the best components are used and the Optibike R15 delivers when other electric bikes stop running. You will not be left behind.

Digital Display with 5 Power Levels up to 1500 Watts

The R15 also features a new digital display with 5 power levels that can be selected with push of a button on the handlebar. The levels range from an easy low torque 250W in level 1, to a blazing fast 1500W with the full 175N-m of torque in level 5.

The display also features functions such as Speed, Max Speed, Average Speed, ODO, Trips A and B, as well as a battery gauge.

In addition the display is backlit for easy visibility at night, turning the backlight on also activates the high brightness headlights on the bike for easy night riding.

Unique Torque Control for Precise Riding in any Condition

Our new torque control throttle makes riding at the speed and cadence that you like much easier, and gives finer control of the output of the motor for those tough offroad trails.
