Just need some advice on motors

Hi just need advice on which motor to buy, I plan to build the eboard with a 10s2p battery made from Samsung 25r5 cells and is 42 volts fully charged. I want to run that through a vesc and into the motor. I want to go upwards of 30km/h (18mph). will be running 83mm wheels so should be heaps of room

190kv motor Gearing 15/36

Look at the motor section in this thread Maytech 190kv motors also seem to be a good choice. Don’t be fooled by marketing and do not buy the enertion motor. Other cheaper ones do just fine.

Enertion doesn’t sell motors anymore, havenet for months.


Your going to need at least a 10s3p to hit 18mph, maybe 4p unless you get 30q cells. 83mm wheels are doable, ive got a board that runs 80mm kegels, but 90mm or bigger are best for your daily driver. I’d look at Popoca’s.

On to motors…for a single motor build a 6374 190-200kv is best, gives you plenty of torque and speed. You can get a 6274 from BKB or TorqueBoards pretty cheap. Also, @bimmer has some choice 6374’s (at least they seem so to me) for sale right now.

Don’t forget about a remote, enclosure, motor mount, wire and connectors, charger, etc.
