Cyclone Motors from Taiwan were back in the golden days of Endless Sphere one of the few places where electric motorcycle and ebike enthusiasts like ourselves were looking to find mid-motors for DIY conversions or projects. The Cyclone Motors website still is in the 90s but offers enough information for a newbie to find what they are looking for. No fancy graphics here, just raw information with a lot of power mid-motors to choose from together with a bunch of mounting parts. Right now the world-wide market offers many options to buy quality hub motors, mid-motors, and other high power ebike and electric motorcycle related parts. It seems that Cycle Motors Taiwan are aware of that, and they have some new stuff on the site added not so far ago.
Nikita 20KW Hub or Mid Drive Electric motorcycle
Nikita electric motorcycle is a good starting point for a DIY electric motorcycle project. We wouldn’t say it is finished because it needs a lot of styling and detailing to make it look good. The minimalist raw looks remind us of a Kalk electric dirt-bike. 20 Kw e-motorcycle has front headlight borrowed from Super Soco TS, DNM front fork suspension and electric hub motor in the rear wheel ( same hub motor size as QS 276 Hub motor used in Evoke Motorcycles). There are two big ass NCM battery options: 120v and 50 Ah (33 Kg = 6 Kw/h ) and 60 V 100 Ah (33 Kg = 6 Kw/h ). Pictures show Nikita 20 Kw motor based on Hub motor. The other Nikita option is a mid motor called CY6K MID but we weren’t able to find that motor on Cyclone website
The rear swing-arm is stock from some existing motorcycle, and front frame part is custom designed and manufactured by Cyclone motors. The seat looks comfy enough.

There are a few NEW electric vehicle motors great for DIY conversions that we like as well. Together with their usual best selling small geared BLDC motors, we find new coaxial 4.8 Kw mi-motor very interesting.
|Coaxial Motor Spec.|
|Torque: 130Nm max|
|Size: Dim. 136mm , lenght 180mm|
|Chainwheel: 42/32/22T or 32/22T|
|Max Output power: 2.4KW @72V|
|Elite e-bike frame Travel 170mm|
This motor together with Stealth Knock-off ENDURO frame kit is in our opinion a very good undervalued option by electric vehicle community hungry of speed and power. You get the mid-motor, and pedals with less weight on the rear wheel.
