The Bafang Geared Front Hub 500W Motor Kit (FMG020) mounts in the place of your bike's front wheel and fully replaces your bike's current front wheel! The kit includes the wheel motor, rim (Disc or V-Brake ready), heavy-duty 12 gauge black spokes and an ultra-high performance, puncture-resistant 2.1" MAXXIS Pace Tire (MSRP $60). This is the newest Bafang 500W Front Hub Motor with a "rated power" of 500watts, however a maximum power of more than 864 watts with the included 18amp controller paired with a 48V battery. Don't be fooled by other sellers who claim to be selling a 750W Bafang Front Hub Motor for $1000+ as Bafang currently does not and has never made a 750W Front Hub Motor (despite other sellers misleading descriptions and claims). This is the tried and true most powerful Bafang Front Hub Motor that is a work horse for hundreds of thousands of pre-made ebikes. We sell the most powerful Bafang Front Hub Motor (48V and 18amps) at the most affordable price to convert your current bike instead of buying a more expensive, heavy, and less powerful pre-made Ebike.
The Bafang 500W Front Hub Kit comes with all of the necessary parts to convert just about any bike (must have an Open-Slotted Front Fork) to transform your bike into a high-powered electric bike! The Bafang Front Hub Motor Kit is a high-performing, lightweight, quiet, fast, hill-climbing, well-engineered electric bike kit. The Front Hub Motor Kit is one of the fastest and easiest installation and conversion possible as the wheel motor comes pre-built and ready to ride! The motor includes 2 types of Pedal Assist Sensors (PAS) options for your installation convenience. You get to choose which Pedal Assist Sensor will be better for your specific installation.
The Pedal Assist Sensor (PAS) allows you to choose the power level of motor assistance that you would like while pedaling. Also, you can always use the throttle in order to engage the motor if you want to take a break from pedaling! Please note, the throttle is limited to the Pedal Assist Level you are in. These Front Hub Motors are designed to be able to go 20+ MPH!
