  1. Does the 48V 500W rear wheel drive motor support free rolling under 0 throttle? Also do you ship to India if requested?

  2. hello, sir I am Jaya Prakash from Lycan 3d at Banglore, we have requirements on 48v 750 w and 500 w 16-inch hub motor so can you reply the specification about the motors to me on same mail.

  3. Hello i want electric scooter kit for 16inch wheel 500w and i have a question if it possible that you ship this to Slovenia and how much is sipping

  4. Hi Tony, I have a trike project that I thought I could use the 2 36V 250W permanent magnet motors in 16″ wheels from 2 cheap mopeds for the rears but it seems that it will be lacking power. I’d like the trike to carry a 150-170 lb. person plus golf equipment ~ 80 lbs.. I also would be using the trike in hilly conditions with decent grades for about 5-6 hours (not continuously with breaks between holes) maybe totaling 3 miles altogether. I am interested in this U48500S for rear left and right power. Can you give me specs, e.g. weight each motor/wheel, torque and max. speed, etc. I would also require controllers for each motor/wheel but only one throttle control (twist grip motorcycle type). Would I be able ti use my 36v lead acid battery for now and upgrade to lithium ion battery pack later, If so would your recommended controllers handle 48V?

  5. Can I fix the 16″ Hub Motor Wheel on the Rear of my Moped or it can only be fixed on the Front ? And can you ship it to Mauritius ? And what will be the Cost including shipping ?

    • it depends on what is your rear wheel dropout size. If the dropout size is ok, that is no problem to install it on the rear. And also we have motors for rear wheel.

  6. Do they offer the 16 inch hub motor and a single shaft I’m looking for something around that size with a single shaft thank you

  7. Namaste!
    Nice & encouraged to find that your service would serve my requirement for my 220cc gasoline bike. I believe a 10kw 16′ front electric hub wheel would do.
    How does it cost me with its various circuits & controls? I can manage batteries as you may specify.

  8. Hi, I have an Electric Wheel EW-18 3 wheel front hub brushless motor scooter. It is similar to the Zappy. It has a 350 watt motor and a 36volt controller. I want to upgrade to a 500 watt hub motor. I have already added another battery to my 36 volt and bought a 48 volt charger. It increased speed from 14 to 19mph but I think the controller has given out after a few months of riding it. The charger lights stay green whether I try to charge 3 batteries at 36volts or all four with a 48 volt charger. I will probably need a kit with a new throttle. What do you recommend and how much will it cost to get it to Phoenix, AZ? Would it be better to just spend 700 on a new 500 watt scooter?

    • first, please check your controller whether it accepts 36v and 48v voltage. Some controller can work on different voltage range. If the controller also works on 48v voltage, just use 48v battery to run the motor and no problem. If you want more powerful motor, I suggest you also change a big power controller.

  9. I need a front hub motor. The brake shows 100 servo. Brushless. Controller is 48volt. 2-12volt 12ah batteries. I think the motor is 350watt, but if you have something the same or higher that would work, please let me know and what price to ship to San Diego California. I have pictures of everything if that would help.

  10. Hello,
    What is the tyre specification? Or can you please tell the sidewall to sidewall dimension?

    It would be great if you could send a drawing of the CAD.

  11. Can you please provide a drawing of the hub motor dimensions showing diameter, width, and mounting shaft? I need to check the mechanical compatibility with my moped. Thank you.

  12. can this go on front of my razor eco smart was going to upgrade scooter to have two wheel drive, i,m gonna buy a new 48v cobtroller and 48v speed twist handle can both be controlled by same twist handle i figure each would need there own controller and battery pack

    • you need to check first whether your motor and controller are brushed or brushless. If they are brushless, this motor should be ok.

  13. I have a Tao Tao ATE-501 electric scooter/bike with a 16″ 48v 20 Ah 500w brushless rear hub wheel motor. I want to replace it with an 800w brushless rear hub wheel motor. I would need the entire wheel (including tire, tube, etc.). Do you carry this item?

    Thank you,

    James Davis


  15. Hello, I would like to add a 16″ 500watt hub motor to my Eco Smart Metro scooter by Razor and was wondering if this would fit and what else would I need to buy? Thanks

    • We only has this motor, do not have a matching controller. you also need a controller, battery, throttle, and so on.

  16. i wish to buy a 16inch front tire mounted 36v 350w/500w brushless motor for my zappy escooter. what do you recommend ?
    thank you, brian

    • We can customize such a motor for you, I need to know if your front wheel dropout size is 100mm , and does it use any types braking?

    • I need to replace my Zappy front wheel hub motor assembly.16in,36v350w/500w.Do you have a simple replacement assy? Thank you…..Brian

        • Dear Tony, thanks for your response. I do not know what a dropout is.The scooter model is es3502. Purchased from Wiztem. Same scooter sold under different names..Nothing special about it. I hope this helps. Thanks,Brian

          • The dropout size is the fork size for the motor assembly. I checked the scooter, it is ok for our motor to replace it.

  17. i have purchased a 16 inch 48v 500amp wheel and motor could you please give me an aproximate maximum speed

  18. Hello
    I have some questions about in the 3 wheel scooter front wheel installed hub electric motor.
    Does it drive only forward?
    Is it possible to drive a reverse?
    Or does it need any special, different, equipment?

    • Hello Arnis,

      For our hub motor, it is ok for the reverse and it needs your controller have the reverse support too. Usually, the gearless hub motor and run in both direction but some geared motor do not support reverse.
