I have a couple of Razor toy electric motorcycles, they are really heavy with very poor suspension. I of course have them running on lipo. 8s on the mx350, with a 24v 65 amp controller, its pretty good, especially for how small it is. I just have a 12 s lipo in my mx 500, the stock controller is very weak! Melted one motor already, just bought another used bike for $50. They will both haul me, and a kid, they go real good with just the kid.
Are the electrics on the Oset 16 and 12.5 are the same as the currie scooters? The 20.0 probably has a 48 v 100 amp kelly controller and just a 1200 watt brushed motor. (nothing special, but simple and works well). Will the little 63/74 outperform it? How is the throttle control with the rc motor?
I Only had a very small input on the development of the motor/speed controller. The smaller osets are a very good platform for kids to get into motorcycles without being put off by the noise and weight of small ICE bikes. The Oset bikes themselfs are really thought out well .
The motors In the smaller osets are a off the self dc motor, but I have no idea if they are the same that is used on the currie scooters, Same with the controllers for the smaller osets. The Motor on the new 20" is a totally new motor designed by oset for oset ( at the moment ) . The controller is also totally new and made for oset ( it has a couple of very nice features that riders/parents will love playing around with ). Will the small 63/74 outperform the osets new motor the only thing I can say is the new osets motor is rated at 1.2kW ( as standard ) and the small 63/74's are loosely rated at around 3kW ( as standard )
but as with any system there are trade offs . Throttle control is down to the controller and how the gearing is setup. I have spent quite a bit of time playing around with this as I could never get it quite right ( but I think I have it nailed now ).
