A new thread for general electric engineering discussions about Electric Motorcycle (EM) truths and half-truths in one place where they are easier to refer to. To start the discussion. Here are few popular myths. Over the next few months, if I can find the time or energy, I will go through them and explain why they are wrong (maybe I'll add some more). If the manufacturer says it takes an hour to charge from 0-100% it will always take an hour to charge the motorcycle. #2 EM are expensive because the batteries are expensive. #6 To increase power all you have to do is increasing the current limit in the controller. #14 Electric motors heat up because there is so much current going through them. #41 Current flowing through motor will create resistance. #49 Electric vehicles have the larger battery, but only the highest model has it unlocked to give the additional range. #56 DC is more efficient than AC. #57 (#59) When battery packs are worn out they can be used in powerwalls. #63 Electric vehicles have zero pollution. #133 We are running out of "DynoJuice" so we have to switch to electric power. #200 If you put a small windmill, or dynamo, on your electric motorcycle you can go further on a charge. #205 Electric motors have full power from 0 RPM. #207 Current equals torque, regardless of condition. Fast charge does not damage batteries. Charging every night does not damage the batteries. Torque in the motor comes from the batteries. Gearboxes have no benefits on EM, and are only added weight. Only current capacities of batteries matter, the low voltage can be compensated for by serial connecting more cells. Electric motors have full power on the whole range from 0 to 20000 RPM. To increase power all you have to do is increase the voltage. The power in EM is not in the motor, it is in the motor control unit. The power in EM is not in the motor, it is in the batteries. The only reason for bigger electric motors is so they heat slower. To get more power out of motor all you have to do is increase its cooling. If motor has built in fan then higher motor speed equals better cooling, and therefore cooler running motor. Power in electric motors is measured in Torque and is directly dependent on current. EM manufacturers will not match components of similar capabilities together, but will gladly purchase much better quality (and more expensive) types of certain components than is needed, so the customers can cheaply "tune" and get more power. Feel free to contribute. Please try not to use singularly unloquacious and diminutive linguistic expression to satisfactorily accomplish the egotistical contemporary necessity. If you think someone is wrong, please explain what you think is wrong.
