Bafang introduces rear hub motors for compact and folding bikes

E-mobility component brand Bafang has introduced a range of three-speed and single-speed rear hub motors for compact and folding bikes.

The Bafang engineering team has developed two new motors applicable for 14-inch, 16-inch and 20-inch wheel bikes. These types of bikes, folding or non-folding are strong categories in many Asian markets.

RM G353 - 3-speed hub and shifting components

The 220W powered rear motor model features an integrated gear drive that fits the narrower standard – OLD 120mm – found on many folding bikes. With a weight of 2.4kg it comes as a disc brake-only version.

The special cassette features a 9-13-17 teeth configuration activated by a short cage rear derailleur and 3–speed trigger shifter made by Sensah. The hub can be combined with either a speed or a torque sensor bottom bracket and with many different displays and remote devices.

RM G351 - single speed hub

Like its 3-speed version, this single speed 220W rear hub motor uses the same OLD of 120mm and comes as a free wheel disc brake-only version with a nine-teeth cog. The weight is reduced to 2.2 kg, making it one of the lightest geared hub motors on the market. The hub can also be combined with either a speed or a torque sensor bottom bracket and many different display options.

The products will be on display at the Taipei Exhibition, Bafang booth L-1012, hall one, fourth floor.
