My 4 kW scooter does 70 km/h, and that's honkin' on bobo. So 8 kW should manage 100 km/h (eventually). See, it all depends on factors like weight and aerodynamics: I have a mountain bike (with street tires) with a 1.5kW motor doing 65Km/h with me (105Kg) folded flat on the bike. The 250 Kawasaki is...

Re: 10kW Motorbike Conversion

Why not get the 17" rim? it would probably get you a better selection of tyres too. Shouldn't be any problem fitting as the 17" tyres are generally lower profile. Edit - I see from the ad it is actually a really wide 17" rim, so may have problems fitting in an older 250. Also the 10kW was just a bi...

https://www.qs-motor.com/product/new-10000w-17inch-in-wheel-hub-motor-with-6-0x17-rim/ Might be a good place to start. Seems like the voltage range is compatible too? Thanks man!

Re: 10kW Motorbike Conversion

Thanks for your reply, Hi Martin, The motor on the swingarm is a well travelled route. If you can make it fit I think it will work quite well. I It fits OK. The battery though - a little bulky for the energy stored, but the right price I guess. I wanted a Lithium battery and being in regional NSW a ...

10kW Motorbike Conversion

Hi Everybody, I am in the process to convert a 250cc Kawasaki motorbike into a 10kW EV.

I also have purchased a Lithium battery bank (Winston) 72V/90Ah....24 cells actu...
