    AQ above is correct, if you try to solder the cells directly you will do them damage - if your cells aren't tabbed then you'll need to make, acquire or otherwise gain access to a tab welder. ...

    There are a lot of factors which go into numerically calculating your kWh/km on any bike, not least of all terrain and speed.

    Howdy,

    Busa is a great chassis for this project - would certainly be my choice.

    I'm not aware that anybody has done it no, but for pretty good reason - with 4 motors, I expect you'd like to be able to travel at a reasonable rate of knots yes?

    I bought a brand new Nissan Leaf in May 2012 myself - it has 203000km on it as of this morning. Couldn't recommend the switch to EV highly enough - you couldn't pay me to go back.

    Howdy, and fair play on the Triumph, she's a beauty.

    No harm in getting the charger and housekeeping voltage rails established - you'll need the latter for some of your instruments anyway.

    Don't confuse running a 140V pack with running the motor over voltage - the motor never sees the pack, only the output of the controller. ;-)

    Having said that, there will doubtless be redundancy...

    Love this idea!

    For 60miles you're likely looking at something in the region of 8-10kWh depending on the drag factor for the chassis - the VX-1 will do about 50miles at about 60mph average on 8kWh...
