    hello, I've been wondering whether a 1000w ebike kit would be sufficient for a 52v 13.5ah battery that I was thinking of getting. I don't really need long range, approx 25km (15 miles). Mostly with throttle. Thank you

    A 52v battery through a 20a controller is what makes the 'kit' motor rate @ 1000w. well 1040w actually. The 13.5ah battery will be 702wh which even if you just use the throttle will easily get you 15 miles. But it you don't plan on pedaling why don't you just get a mo ped or scooter class vehicle?

    JRA mentioned the controller. Make sure it can take that rated load. It will also be getting pretty hot with a throttle only run at that voltage. Keep wires off it and don't stick it inside a bag.

    Thanks for the info :) I'm only 17 and here in Australia you have to be 18 to get a motorbike.
