Very light weight and well balanced
MotorBriggs and Stratton Etek Permanent Magnet DC
ControllerAlltrax 72V, 450A controller
But because this is also a university project we are creating our own.
Batteries4 Exide Orbit, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded
We originally had AUScell but when testing the bike only made 2km at 40Km due to batts limits. So far the batteries have been very good no problems
System Voltage48 Volts
not in design requirements so, any charger will do. Do not know yet
HeaterWho needs a heater when theres global warming.
DC/DC Converter
Just tapping 12V from the batteries
Top Speed45 MPH (72 KPH)
i think 45mph (72khp) because speedometer is not operating properly and all the vehicles around me catch up to me just to see what on earth is that silent machine with no exhaust pipe in front of them, so i do not know if i am going faster than the car going at the speed limit.
Range27 Miles (43 Kilometers)
Still uncertain
Seating Capacity1 adult
Curb Weight0
Around 150kg (original maybe 170 with batts)
Conversion Timelots of time 3-semester Project
Conversion Costso far around $2000
Additional FeaturesDue to time constraints and budget, we rethink and decided to create a normal e-motorbike we had plans for new methods of propulsion to increase speed and distance but there are other subjects to consider and so we will make a controller and dc-dc converter and see from there.

Sorry about the pics, i am having trouble putting them on this site for some wired reason.

Electric Bike: $1000
Motor: $600
batteries: $1000
Having your own little motorshow in front of 200 people: priceless
