Vehicle1985 Honda VF1000F
Complete rebuild of an Honda VF into an EV. Goals with the rebuild were a full-electric vehicle with a range and speed of 100+ km(h). The bike runs about 125 km/h max and has a range of about 100 km.
MotorPerm Motor PMG 132 Permanent Magnet DC
Drivetrainsingle gear, chain-driven.
ControllerAlltrax 7243
Batteries10 SAFT 36/15Ah, 36.00 Volt, Nickel-Metal Hydride
Batteries carry their own BMS, so that part was taken care off. Furthermore a scepsis towards Li safety made me decide for NiMH. Anyone bad experiences with Li batteries in their EV? Please let me know (see email on page)
System Voltage72 Volts

With decent driving, we manage 70+ miles range. Naturally this is much less when "burning rubber" (or is it: "burning batteries"?)
