    new yokeless axial flux topology motor

    I am not familiar with the technology, but this new motor sounds interesting, especially as it is shown installed in a (computer generated?) motorcycle:

    "The result are high-speed motors with power densities up to 15 kW/kg and torque densities up to 35 Nm / kg. It is expected that the 185 mm diameter version will deliver a peak power of 84 kW at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 100 Nm for a weight of only 7 kg."

    That's... insane. 112hp, 73 lb/ft, from a 7.25 inch, 15.5 lb package. Or 400hp from an 11 inch 50lb package. I wonder what the power requirements look like.

    I hope it is all real and that company is just not trolling for dollars, like so many other EV-component startups that never produced their wonderful product have in the past.

    LOL @Stevo. I've swapped out motors 3 times, and run 5 battery packs. When they called it the bleeding edge, I didn't realize they were talking about money...

    Still, though, try swapping out 3 motors on a gas bike, right?
