Thumbs up Newbie EV Motorcycle


I just joined EcoModder and have enjoyed reading the posts so far.

I am developing a project that consists on the conversion of an old motorcycle, with combustion engine, to a electric motorcycle. I pretend 100 km of range and 120 km/h of top speed.

Very intrested on the developing of the Paul & Sabrina's cheap DIY motor controller.


PS:I am from Portugal, so the English language may suffer some attacks. Sorry about that.

Hello everyone,

The project is in a early stage, i am looking for what i can do and what i need to buy, the motor is pre-selected, should be a EMC-RT Motor.

It have 8 kW of continuous power and 19 kW peak, i think it should handle pretty well a motorcycle with 150 or 200 kg.
And i am looking for litium LifePo4 batteries, they are pretty expensive,but they have very high cycle life of up to 2000 cycles, low weight and that should compensate the investiment.

Currently i am searching for DIY controllers, battery chargers and BMS systems for the batteries.

And the motorcycle should be something like this:Kawasaki GPZ GPX 250, something that can support the extra weight and space of the batteries.

Any advices or suggestions, i am always available to listen and learn.
