Sports style? I thought they only did standard / classic type styling?

So there is another thread where a QS hub motor was used. ... 641#p68955
The 8kW hub motor was used as that what fitted width-ways I Believe.
The QS site has 8kW, 10kW, 12kW and 14kW.
However the only difference I could see was the kV rating - and you can specify this when ordering!
So I don't know how real the 14kW motor is.
As mentioned in the other thread 8kW has trouble maintaining 100kph.

So if you're not interesting in maintaining highway speeds and happy with cruising around these do look like a good option.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
Help prevent road rage - get outta my way!
