On both motors, i've never been able to max them out in a 26 inch wheel because of wheelies.
Give a 4T leaf 90A x 48v, and a 3T MXUS 90A x 48v... and just go 100% throttle, and..
The Leaf will try to flip you over, but you'll have enough time to adjust and correct... then after 10mph or so, it'll stop threatening to lift the front wheel into the sky, and you're safe.
The MXUS will flip you over, and not give you time to adjust. If you're cautious of this and are careful with the throttle to 15-20mph, you're free from wheelies.
Both motors pull hard enough to overtake a V6, or maybe even a V8 car, from a stoplight. Easily.
The leaf has more power than i know what to do with on a bicycle with a standard wheelbase. Now, if you had a grayborg or something with an extended swingarm, THEN you could make full advantage of the torque and actually saturate the motor.
20S lipo was near terrifying on the leaf. That 'max power' video i shot had me just barely edging the throttle until i hit 20mph. It was very difficult to control the bike at that power.
