Aluminum has a lifespan - you can only twist and bend it so many times before it goes. With a hub motor, you also have a powerful thing at the end of what is basically two long sticks, flexing the metal every time it engages, just like a disc brake.
But the torque force is worse than a disc brake.
You need a notably overbuilt front Fork to handle it.. most are not overbuilt..
