  1. The Lightning has a fantastic drivetrain highlighting a custom motor case which locates the output shaft concentric with the swingarm. The motor weight is low and rearward with the modified RMS controller just inches away from it. The motor core (so far) is a parallel wound Remy HVH250, output is “tunable”. It is a thing of beauty and one of the most efficient designs I have ever seen, e-bike or not.
