Maximum power Intuitive delivery

Bafang G510 is just monstrous with nearly 4 times more power & nearly twice more torque than a standard Bosch or Shimano motor. The bike is capable of doing 50kmh+ without breaking a sweat. We are proud of our own firmware eMTB 2.o – a two year effort to program & optimise how the motor responds to the pedalling pressure so the ride can be as intuitive & natural as possible!


This mid-drive motor measures your pedalling effort at a frequency of up to 80k Hz via a torque sensor and two speed sensors. The result is that “the harder you push , the more power you get from the motor” – the right way.

Size matters

Up to 910Wh Premium Battery

Battery is the heart of every electric bike.  Depending on the motor power, every 100Wh is about 5km-10Km of real world range.  The removable & compact battery design means that the removing and installing is only a 3 secs job.


Battery power depletion is not linear unlike petrol. Our optimised Battery-Management-System has been tested by us for 4 years. It is built-in to safeguard the battery and ensures the battery longevity and potency during & after the most demanding rides.

Please find available upgrades/options at the bottom of the page


2000Watts Motor Upgrade

If you are an experienced rider looking for the absolutely max performance in this form factor , here is the upgrade! Increasing the stock 1500peak to 2000watts peak!

What does it mean ?

  • a bit higher torque
  • a bit faster acceleration
  • more robust in 40-60kmh speed range
  • drain the battery faster though!




Bike Safety; Immobiliser +Alarm !

Immobiliser system & alarm system to make sure your bike is always yours!

VOLITION has successfully developed a wireless module to cut off the controller power with our partner in Japan and Bafang China. Without the remote, the thieves wouldn’t be able to turn on the bike thus the bike would have no re-sale value. The module is embedded in the motor system. Riders can lock and unlock the controller wirelessly within 10 meters.

Why are SEALED GEARS BETTER in many ways?


Main benefits:

  • Internal gears use the stronger chain enduring the tear and wear a lot better
  • There is no “strange”  side-way chain movement grinding up and down the cassette
  • Power delivery is more smooth & efficient as the chain line remains straight
  • Internal gears can shift standing still without pedalling (at the traffic lights)
  • Internal gears are hidden from the dirt, sand or oil … and therefore require much less maintenance; lasting much longer


Important Note: there’s a clutch inside. STOP the pedalling or the throttling in order to safely shift between gears.




Questions & Answers


  • Can I just use the throttle and not pedal at all ?

Yes. You can (un-restricted version only). The throttle works like a mini e-moped ; please avoid to over-use the throttle especially the take-off.


  • How many years will the battery last ?

E.Bike batteries should last up to 4-5 years before dropping to 50% of the original capacity . It is a gradual process.


  • What distance can I get it out ?

It really depends. A 910wh battery on a G510 motor can get up to 100km ; but, we also have reports from users achieving less than 50km after sporty rides.


  • Do you have dealers in other cities.

No. Volition E-Bike Australia is a factory to consumer / direct sale manufacturer based in Sydney. We’ve hammered down the price to be the lowest possible.


  • What if I have a problem with my e.bike in the future?

Most parts are just regular bike parts. You could get help from any bicycle store. If you are experiencing any electrical issue, we can remotely diagnose the issue and send replacement parts. We could also arrange a courier pick up for your bike and have it serviced in Sydney.


  • How can I put the bike together from the box.

We have a short video. We will have also supplied basic tools in the box for you. You could also seek help from a local shop.

Mid Drive vs Hub Motor

There are mainly two ebike motor systems on the market


New e-motor and battery trends from Eurobike 2019: Amprio, Bafang ...

[Mid Drive]

  • Produces a lot of torque utilising the bike’s gear system; better for the hill climbing and efficient riding. All premium e.bikes use mid drive systems
  • Light weight, centred and a part of the frame; thus, no negative effect on the suspension performance
  • Riders need some hours on the bike to learn and understand how it works
  • Puts the stress on the bike chain; however, internal gear systems in general can solve this issue.



[Hub Motor Drive]

  • Affordable & popular on entry level e.bikes
  • Impose no stress on the drive system by not using them
  • Not great torque; poor leverage
  • Unsprung mass which means it negatively affects the suspension performance
  • Tyre / tube change is a hassle
  • Subjectively boring …





More about the battery & charger

What is an E.bike battery ?

Voltage = Power

The controller & battery really determine the power level of an e.bike; not necessarily just the motor. The controller draws the current. The battery holds the charge (voltage).  The broad conclusion is that the higher the voltage, the more powerful the e.bike is

This is why you will notice the power decrease as the battery holds less and less energy during use. A freshly charged battery is in its most “potent” condition.


Watt.Hour = Range

The misconception is that ampere.hour (Ah) is the battery’s duration. Watt Hour (Wh) is in fact the correct measure of size for a battery. In an approximate estimation, you can travel 5-20km for every 100watt-hours, based on an average of mixed levels of power and variation of terrain. Our numbers are real world figures based on customers’ feedback.



Like all things, batteries vary significantly in quality and engineering.  Some are just unsafe and scary. Firstly, the battery cells are not made equal. Cells are “farmed” and there are Grade AAA and all the way down to Grade C. The prices vary drastically. Unfortunately,  almost all highest grade battery cells are grabbed by car manufacturers in their exclusive deals. Premium E.bike batteries are made from Grade A or A- or B+. Cheap batteries tend to use lower grades of cells that tend to die prematurely or the power is lacklustre. One analogy is that if a restaurant wants the best grade of vegetables from the farms, it has to pay for it.

A battery is in fact made of lots of cells.  What determines the battery’s overall duration and safety is how they are connected together.  We have spent huge amounts of time researching and visiting battery factories. One can assume that the longer time the production line spends on a single battery, the better & safer the battery will be. More time = better results. We have very strict instructions and protocols with our partner factories as to how our batteries are assembled . We make sure that each and every single battery that we sell is as safe as possible. Sadly, we have seen a great number of unsafe batteries purchased cheaply online.


Battery charging;

One common question we get is that should I care about how I am charging the battery. Modern (our) e.bike batteries have a BMS computer board inside to regulate the charging, discharge and prevent over charging and over-use. It also balances the voltage level of each cell. So with our premium BMS. The answer is “no need & just charge it whenever you feel like”.

The charger determines the speed of charging. Fast charging is convenient. But it decreases the longevity of the battery because the “charging” is in fact putting the stress on the battery cells. The faster the charging, the more stress the cells have to bear. If you are not in a huge hurry, a 3 or 5amps charger will do the job just fine.
