Nobody here has ever opened both a 450W and 250W motor to see if they are the same thing. The controller on my 450W Trailz Ezip has a sticker that claims 35 Amps which means it can feed 840W peak to the motor. If the ECOride controller is 35 Amp also, I'd bet the 250W and 450W are the same motor.
Other mods to these include modified motor mount plates to fit two motors. If nothing else, it is a heavy steel frame that might be good for a rear hub motor.
