What would be a good inexpensive motor package to replace a 200cc 16 hp , hub or mid. Would like between 12-20hp complete kit without batteries. I will make my own pack. This is for a Yamaha tw200 legal trail motorcycle

I think that meaty rear tire will take care of any worries about unsprung weight with a hub motor. Love the TW200, so I'm looking forward to seeing more on this project.

And I think a continuous 6-10hp mabey a 15hp motor might be what I need. And really if I got even 10 miles per charge it would be enough.

After looking at all motor options I’m thinking about running 2 5-8 hp hub motors. But I’m having a hard time figuring out what rear motor to use for this , since it has a 6” rear wheel and a 14” rim diameter. Anybody have an idea what hub motors to run . I’m only looking for 35+ mph and 15 or more range. I thought 2 36 volt lithium packs could work.
