Bigass Hub Motors- Part 1: Protean

Yes.  I’m on a Quest for the Bigass Hub Motor.  And here is the biggest-ass hub motor I’ve been able to find.  This is from a company called Protean, their main site is here.  It looks like two companies- Protean Electric, and Printed Motor Works.

Just for the sake of argument, here’s the spec on a motor that looks swell for a motorcycle:

PMW XR 32-12
Provisional Motor Ratings Provisional Motor Constants
Voltage 135 V Voltage (Ke) 111 V/kRPM
Current 214 A Torque (Kt) 1.05 Nm/A
Speed 1100 RPM Resistance (L-L) 0.035 Ω
Rated Torque 203 Nm
Rated Power 23.4 kW

More to come!
