Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

The ME1507 is $1000 and its continious rated power is 13kW, peak power 44kW (62hp) at 100 volts and max rpm of 8000 rpm.

For the price of that qs 14kw hub motor I could mount two of the ME1507 motors in the frame and run them in series or pararell and get 120 hp !!!

Re: Bernel's new electric motorcycle build

Definitely interested in seeing this build get done.

I'm considering using a ME1507 with a Sevcon gen4 size6 controller in a 2002 zx6r conversion with lithium batteries

Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

Changing the voltage is not going to change the gear ratio.

Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

Interesting, just one draw back is I can't change the gear ratio. You can effectively change it by changing the voltage of the system. If you need higher speeds, increase the system voltage (and potentially the current). Depending on the motor wind, it can shift the power band around. That is not g...

There are more powerful options out there, but they are also more expensive. Phi-Power have a great range.
I like the Phi27S, going to call them and see that controllers they recommend. Definitely the size I'm looking for.

Besides mid-motor, there are some brave souls out there that have installed two hub motors (one in front, one in rear) giving you all-wheel drive and nearly double the HP.

No thanks lol.

Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

The ME1507 with a good controller and lithium batteries would destroy those QS hub motors and I also want to have the option of gear ratio changes.

Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

OK I will look into those. 160 kmph or faster would be perfect.

Re: Motor options for sportbike conversion

Unfortunately these hub motors are only good for 130 kmph. I want faster, that's the reason I want to say with a frame mounted motor(s) to change the gear ratio.

Motor options for sportbike conversion

Hello, I have a 1999 cbr600f4 and I would like to convert it to electric. I have been considering a few different motor options. ME1507 BLDC, HPEVS AC20, Agni 95R or a ME1003. I would like the bike to have decent acceleration and a top speed of 160 kmph/100 mph or so. What other motor options would ...
