Bafang 500W-BPM also available from ES member Keywin / firstname.lastname@example.org
Crossbreak and Miles have calculated that the Bafangs "might" run well up to 2,000-RPMs at the motor (5:1 reduction to the output shell, so 2,000 motor-RPMs = 400 wheel-RPMs), and any RPMs above that: efficiencies and waste-heat both slowly curve to the bad side...

Jeremy Harris' and Wurlys' acquired data on Bafang code#/turn-countsFirstly, the two BPM models [from BMS-Battery] and the new CST cassette-hub model are all rated at 36V. The coding applies to a 36V input and all the values I will be giving you are in unloaded conditions. Let's begin with a code-16 motor and work our way to the code-8 motor.
_8_______378. mind you, all of these specifications are directly from the engineers of Bafang.
