Bafang 8fun 48V 500W Rear Wheel Hub E-Bike Conversion Kit


A rear wheel hub motor conversion kit is a quick and easy way to add electric assist to your bike – the Bafang 48v 500w rear hub motor is not only reliable but produces very good performance. Ease of installation is another plus point, you simply swap out your rear wheel, change the tube, tyre, disc rotor (if you have disc brakes) and cassette/freewheel, re-install. Fix the display to the handlebars fit the battery, mount the controller box and install the pedal assist sensor on the crank axle, plug everything in and away you go!

The Bafang 48v 500w rear hub motor has proven to be very durable over the years and continues to be popular with DIY e-bike enthusiasts.
The 500w version is not legal for road use in the UK, as it exceeds the maximum 250w continuous power output allowed by UK EAPC law. The 500w should only be used on private land (with the owners permission).

Smooth and quiet power delivery from the 58v Bafang 500w rear hub motor
The Bafang 48v 500w rear hub motor has been available for years and the basic design has remained largely unchanged. The is because the simple, geared hub motor design is not only durable but also produces more torque than direct drive motors. Power delivery is very smooth and progressive and the motor is very quiet apart from a slight audible whine. As far as performance is concerned these Bafang rear hub motors really do the job of getting you up hills with ease - it's just unfortunate that they're not actually road legal in the UK.
