Hello Everyone, This is first glimpse at the latest and greatest from Nogas this year. Actually we built the first one in the middle of last year and its just been getting better ever since. I got tired of being limited with direct drive hub motors. Speed or torque are your choices but you cant have both. Vectrix did it with a planetary gear, which by the way failed on my Vectrix along with the batteries and now its in a corner collecting dust because I built a better machine. How'd you do it Johnny? Glad you asked. Really simple. I put dual 6kw high speed hub motors, dual 300 amp kelly controllers, 72volt 60ah thundersky batts with bms of course, one brave test rider, and presto. Problem solved. She tops out at 72.6 according to gps, and gets there in a big big hurry. The Cruiser XS smokes the vectrix from start to finish and certainly out ranges it too. No heat issues with motors, controllers, or batteries that the other guys are still trying to figure out. Want the answer? You're looking at it.
Find the steepest hill you can. Go halfway up it then stop. Now twist the throttle gently because this bike will shoot out from between your legs if you're not careful. Now get your girlfriend, put her on the bike with you and repeat. No worries, finnaly! Sounds fun huh? Well let me tell you it is. I have ridden just about every scoot under the sun and have tested every motor/controller battery combo available off the shelf and know what performance they will yeild. With these hub motors and controllers we are all using this is the only real solution to achieve the performance that we all long for.
I hope this post raises a few eyebrows and people take notice. Though I am light hearted about this introduction about my company and my product I assure you we are working very hard seven days a week for almost two years now to build the machine you se here.
The answers to the three questions are, 70+ mph, 26 miles full throttle on the interstate. 50 miles real world driving speeds, and $6000.
