-Stock photos will be phased out for actual shots of the bikes
-Power levels will be more clear that they are NOT a continuous rating of the motor, it is just nominal battery voltage x current output of the controller (actual power output)
-Range will be indicated as a maximum range @ 18-20 MPH.
Contrary to what people may think, we do have our own motors, they are more efficient than any Crystalyte HS (less heat buildup at higher wattages), and in one full year of selling our gearless motors, there has NOT been one instance of a burnt motor. We know what we are doing and we keep things at a safe level, but at the same time push "accepted" boundaries. That's what HPC is all about.
Watch as people blow their shiny brand new Crystalyte 54xx's on that kind of power.

Are you joking Neptronix? The 54s will be able to run 4-5 kw without skipping a beat. I used to run that on my X5303 stock, unvented, until my 20ah battery was drained, and it didn't even break a sweat.
On hills for long periods of time?
Were you doing it in a 26" wheel like hipower cycles sets their bikes up, or something smaller?

When you see a commercial for a new car and they claim the new (such and such) now has 260 horsepower, isnt that just an achieved maximum rating?]

Well I'm still suspecting you to work for them more then ever before, just my point of view.richirich1113 wrote: Blackarrow,
I did not say that I do not remember how much I paid. I know what I paid. What imp saying is " I'm not going to do someone's work for them".
Regardless of what anything costs, its customer service and warranty service that is the bottom line and i have been more than satisfied with it. Warranty is the biggest factor for me. .
There are too many complaints on here about china vendors or even group buys that the product is bad and the purchaser is just stuck with it after waiting possibly months for it... That would Fricke piss me off to no end. .
And its been pointed out, that really , who else is going to be able to build bikes like theirs and warranty it for less than what they ask? .
excellent, thank you.richirich1113 wrote:
Blackarrow, I understand that a member here who has the knowledge and want to build his own can of course do it cheaper, I'm not arguing that. .
If a person does not know how or just does not want to, and wants to buy from a company that will provide excellent customer service and warranty claims then HPC is a good choice.
