Vehicle2002 TECC Viento
MotorPerm Motor PMG-132 Permanent Magnet DC
It's a German made radial gap (Lemco or Etek similar) Rated
to 72 volts 110 amps continuous 200 amps for ten minutes.
DrivetrainSingle reduction Synchronous belt drive
ControllerCurtis 1205
24/36volt 275amps
Batteries3 Hawker Odyssey PC1200, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, AGM
42 AH at the ten hour rate
System Voltage36 Volts
ChargerIota 48-15
Iota 48-15 power supply tuned down to 36 volts and 18
amps. This is the stock charger and it's not too smart. I
paired it with a Soniel 3608 which does the (thinking) finish
charging. Total initial on board charge rate is 22.5 amps
(Quick turn around)
DC/DC Converter
36V to 12 Volt at 300 watts
InstrumentationCurtis voltage gauge
Quality bike computer for speedometer and ODO.
Originally it came with a Garmin GPS for speed and ODO
(interesting but not practical)
Top Speed42 MPH (67 KPH)
Stock top speed was 28 mph. The bike is too big for the bike
lane or shoulder. Automobile drivers always slowed thinking
I was about to merge. At 42 mph the bike is comfortable in
urban sprawl traffic.
AccelerationGood, better than most cars.
Range40 Miles (64 Kilometers)
Utilizing the on board main pack of Odyssey PC 1200's and
40ah of low C rate LiFePO4 batteries nominal 38.4V (XR
pack). Total battery capacity is 82ah at 36volts. 2.9 KWH

Current:7,739 Miles (12,452 Kilometers)
Seating Capacity2 adults (total of 340 pounds)
Curb Weight210 Pounds (95 Kilograms)
210 pounds stock

TiresMichelin MC tire rear

Conversion CostRetail ~$3500
I paid less as I bought when TECC was sinking.
Additional FeaturesNice LED tail light
Wireless alarm system
Powercheq BMS for the SLA's. Separate BMS for the LiFePO4 batteries
BLS unit switched for part time use.
Battery heater for the main batteries.

Hybrid Chemistry battery pack which utilizes the best qualities of both chemistries for
great results. Premium Sealed lead acid does the heavy lifting of high amperage
acceleration and hill climbing. The paralleled LiFePO4 battery pack extends the range
dramatically at reasonable added cost and 1/4 the weight of an equivalent lead XR pack.

I can't say enough good things about the ride and overall function of this ugly little
motorcycle. They really blew it on the styling but once you ride it a few times you no
longer care.

The PERM PMG-132 motor is amazing. I geared this bike up >40% over the stock
gearing and the motor barely breaks a sweat. It climbs up hills without loosing speed
like most electrics. The steepest hill I can find it will crest at 38mph!
