Cool, that's better than I was expecting. Let us know if they get that resonant stator hum that the larger pies seem to get. If you're running an adaptto you probably won't get it either way.The '1500W' Leaf motor I bought is a 35mm wide stator, however the newer Leaf motor's are over 90% efficient
You sure ?? Admittedly I know nothing about them but that sounds a little too good to be true. We're talking about the bigger motor right - magic pie size ? Around 273mm diameter ? If it has a 16mm axle that means it's chunkier throughout than the crystalyte and thus will be heavier. The H40 uses a stamped steel stator so there's no weight to be saved there. It's also physically larger so will presumably have more iron in the hub/magnet ring. Even if it's thinner it should at best come out around the same. The side covers are also bigger, though aluminium so fairly light either way. There's less than 1kg difference between the H40 and the H35 (ballpark around 800g from memory) so for a bigger motor with a bigger axle I can't imagine it should be any more than 1kg less than the H40... (even if I'm off on a wrong tangent about the wider diametre size of the motor)The Leaf motor is also about 2Kg lighter than the HS40 motor's which isn't an amount to scoff at IMO.
