All e-Moto electric vehicles are powered by high performance brushless hub motors. e-Motos hub motors are sealed, and have no internal wearing parts allowing for ultimate in weatherproof, maintenance free operation. Whereas both the Power Assist Bicycles and Electric Scooters use the same motor design, there are several key differences in design between the two.
Power Assist Bicycle Motors
Weighing just over 7-pounds, the hub motor installed on all e-Moto electric bikes is rated at a continuous output of 250-watts. (Beware of bike motors advertised with high wattage figures - they likely are peak wattage capability, not continuous output rating.) These 26 and 37 volt, 3-phase DC motors also have an internal reduction gear that amplifies the motors output - making it perform on par with motors of twice the wattage!
Power Assist Bicycle Motors
All e-Moto electric bikes use our VPAC (Variable Pedal Assist Controller) multi-speed controller. The VPAC controller uses an input signal from the bikes torque sensor to provide the power to the motor. The latest generation of VPAC controller offers 2-speeds of assist, that is rider selectable from the bikes dashboard. The low-speed controller setting limits the assist to 10-mph or belowwhich helps your get up to speed quickly, and keeps lots of power in reserve for hill, all while giving the rider a greater aerobic workout at cruising speed. The high setting provides the full 15-mph assist.
Your electric bicycle is a significant investment, and good security measures will help it remain yours. A large part of the expense of an electric bike is the battery and motor - and securing them to the bike is a primary concern. The battery should be removable to facilitate charging away from the bike, but still secure enough that it cannot be stolen. Second, where on a conventional bike quick release hubs are a convenience, on a power assist bike they can facilitate theft of the motor.
Conventional axle nuts are the preferred installation. Finally, some electric bikes come with integrated locking systems as standard equipment. Some of these systems feature a wheel lock that is physically bolted to the bike which will immobilize the bike, at which point you can insert a chain to lock the bike to a nearby pole.
