Quantya Evo1 is a good motorcycle with good components.
The problem Is that this motorbike is made for motocross parks and
this is the motive it initially has the ratio for only 65 km/h with
very aggressive acceleration.
Cause I use it for my commuting, I need more max speed and better
throttle feeling, so I soon changed the crown with a smaller one
and now I get a max speed of 75 km/h and less aggressive
The other problem Is that the Alltrax controller only is "speed
throttle mode and not "torque" mode, so the trhottle feeling is not
so good.
Lengthening the final ratio also will give me better throttle
feeling, so I will upgrade my Quantya transmission with 30 theet
pulley and will get a max speed of 90 km/h.
Other problem is about battery autonomy, only 2 kwh in total and only
1,7 kwh really usable.
I'm in plan to add 1 kwh of Samsung 18650 25r lion cells in parallel
to the original battery.
Cause the different chimical of two batteries, specially initially I
will have frequently to monitor the batteries.
To conclude, I live in Rome, I use my motorbike everyday to go to
work and sometimes for fun, I'm quite satisfied from my Quantya
motorcycle, I think that with more max speed and more autonomy (that
are work in progress) I will get my full satisfaction.
