This is a pedal assist motor. The controller sense the torque applied to the chainring. The harder the pedal is pushed the greater the amperage applied to the motor.
Range10 Miles (16 Kilometers)
There are 5 levels of assist. I set the control at highest assist level and was able to pedal 10 miles before the battery pack was discharged. Setting the control at 1 will apply less asset but will increase the range.

This will replace the electric 2 x 4 because I need the exercise.
The shaft drive on the honda motorcyle reduced my range.
I was getting 15 Miles and Chain drive machines with the same batteries and ETECK motor were getting 25 miles per charge. The Electric 2x4 will be dissasembled and sold for parts.
