Re: 45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

Thanks for all the replies. Jonescg I think I saw the voltron in a YouTube video, has it got 2 motors? Looks pretty cool. I'll come and watch you if you're at Queensland raceway again. I'm thinking maybe I could go with 5 battery packs that can easily be removed from the bike if more than 2 hours ri...

Re: 45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

Thanks for the reply. I'm based in Tingalpa, it's about 20ks south of Brisbane. Would pouch cell be strong enough? I want to use the bike for motocross. I did a little research and I think for the battery I would be best off using 18650 cells like the Tesla cars. I'm assuming the Alta bike also uses...

Re: 45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

Perhaps 45kw would be a little excessive. I didn't realize these motors produce so much torque. A modern 250 motocross bike produces 45HP and 20LB of torque and a 450 58HP 35LB. So I'm thinking the best option for weight would be a smaller motor with more power from the batteries and an large coolin...

Re: 45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

I found this on YouTube he's got 60HP out of it but it's a custom zero motor. I could do with something that will fit straight off the shelf.

Re: 45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

Hi thanks for your reply. My goal is to build a bike that is similar to the Alta Motors redshift MX. The bike is not available in Australia yet and I believe it's $12000 USD. So I was thinking if I can get a lightweight motor and battery pack I can build something as powerful for a little less. I ha...

45KW + Electric Dirt Bike Best Motor, Batteries, Controller

Hi I'm new to this forum and keen to learn. I am going to build an electric dirt bike using a KTM rolling chassis but I have very little knowledge of the motor, batteries and controller I need to use. So what would be a good motor that is fairly light, reliable and 55HP plus? What are the best batte...
