Q. Can I do the installation myself ? Is it hard ? Can Volition do the work for me ?
Q. Can I convert any bike ?
There are many Youtube videos out there that can help you. However, the tool and set up you need for the conversion may cost you hundreds and if you have zero experience with bikes or similar products, you may ended up breaking a few things on the bike ….. We are the most experienced team in Australia and our professional installation offer is only $600.
Not every bike out there but most. We recommend 8/9 speed hard-tail mountain bikes due to their strong frame and suspension. 10/11/12 speeds are not recommended because the chain and cassette start to get really thin and the motor’s pull power may destroy them within weeks. But if you are prepared to replace them often, you will be fine as well.
Q. I only want a 500W or 750W motor ? Do you have them ?
Firstly, the peak power is when you push the motor to its limit; one can just use the 20-30% of the motor power and improve its longevity
By request. We still stock and sell the older generation BBS02B Peak 1000Watts
Q. What is the top speed and range ?
We set our motor top speed to 50kmh. Removing the speed limit voids the warranty. However, the theoretical motor top speed for most bikes is 60kmh depending on the road and gear ratio. The range depends on the size of the battery you buy and how you use the motor. The less you are pedalling , the less range you will get out of the battery. Our range estimates are based on feedbacks we get from our customers.
Q. What is the difference between power and torque ?
You want the power (up to 200oW) for the high speed travelling. You want the torque (up to 160Nm) for climbing the hills and carry cargo goods. The mid drive is better at producing the torque.
Q. Can I buy 48V or 52V batteries else where ?
A. You can source your own battery. Our Batteries have been specifically engineered to take on powerful motors without dying prematurely. In general , the bigger the battery, the better
Q. Is BBSHD / M615 truly better than the older but a bit cheaper BBS0102b
A. 100% so much better. We strongly recommend the BBSHD over BBS0102. HD stands for Heavy Duty. The motor is properly engineered in every way including heat management, gear design & the quality of the components.
Q. What is the difference with peak power and nominal power ?
A. The nominal power (watts) is the stable average power out under a medium level of stress – like fast jogging. The peak power is like sprinting – the motor is giving all it has. Both numbers are important. VOLITION calculates the peak power using fully charged batteries.
Q. Should I purchase some brake sensors and what are they?
A brake sensor cuts the motor power off when a brake is applied. They are additional safety measurement. However, why would anyone apply the brake and pedal forward at the same time ? We do not use them ourselves. You should make your own choice.
Q. Do I need the gear sensor ? What is it ?
Gear sensor is recommended for commuting but not for trail riding. It cuts out the power for a sec to allow gear shifting taking place safely.
There are mainly two motor systems on the market

After my wife's passing, this bike has brought much needed joy to my life.
I have been searching an e.bike for two years and chose VOLITION!
