Of course the motor can be over-volted, but don't bet on the controller being able to handle it.
When over-volting the motor it will still be at roughly the same wattage rating, but will spin at a incrementally faster speed.
If you go above 150% of the rated voltage you will need to monitor the temperature of the motor.
