Proper Motor for Honda Gyro Canopy Swap

3340 4
I've done some research, but getting information in Japan when you want to do something different is far tougher than one when has never lived here would believe.

I'd like a father-son project on a Honda Gyro Canopy:

They are 50cc, so I'd need a motor of comparable size, but preferably with more power. I can find Nissan Leaf battery cells at reasonable prices which made me think that a smaller EV motor comparable to a 500cc-100cc power output with Leaf batteries providing 60kms+ per charge may be the way to go. The box on the back looks like a proper storage place allowing for the rest to still be used.

I'd rather read and research on my own, but my lack of Japanese the lack of interest in doing personal EVs has stunted any progress. Can an angel of light provide some guidance on how I can proceed....if this is a realistic project?
