Ridden & Rated: 4 of the Best eMTB Motor Systems for 2020 - Bosch vs Brose vs Shimano vs Fazua
@jambarbeast: lol dude, do you not read? Just scroll up to see how many times i’ve said that. The question i asked is clearly rhetorical... no one here seems to have the balls to answer. Its not tricky

@Losvar: Ok maybe I wasn't clear enough (I can see you've interpreted my post not as I'd intended). I was talking in terms of how the bikes are reviewed and marketed. Most companies and reviewers focus their time only talking about power... hence the opening of my post. You've separated them out and removed the context of what I'm trying to say. Talking only about power is irrelevant because there are more factors involved. But I'll ask again because you didn't answer last time. What happens to all that power (from an ebike motor!!!) if you don't allow it to have any torque? Remember that I know it's not actually possible to separate them both, but just answer the question.

@Losvar: meh, not totally incorrect though... you’ve just spent your time here telling me that power and torque can’t be separated when that wasn’t what i was saying in the first place. :tup: :)

@Losvar: thats kind of my point. And talking about power alone is equally as meaningless. But yet we look at almost every review and torque is rarely mentioned PS, i’m not talking about cars here. @boozed, ok take away the torque what happens with all that power?

@threehats: that still doesn’t explain why almost all reviewers barely mention torque. Most high torque motors also have a high power, so they get the best of both. But there are significant number of ebikes (remember we’re not talking about cars/motorbikes here) with motors that have very low torque output.

@sewer-rat: Yep. Yamaha motors are the most reliable around here too. Bosch aren't too far behind. It's the switchgear and wiring that lets everybody down in the UK. All the manufacturers seem to forget to test their bikes in wet conditions and assume that their customers won't store their bike in a cold damp garage or shed. Brose are by far the least reliable from my experience. One of our customers went through 6 motors in less than a year (Levo) and he only rides around town and gravel tracks. Every day in all conditions mind.

It always baffles me why the focus of reviews is always on power. Power only gives top speed and its always irrelevant because all e-bikes have their top speed restricted. The measure of torque has got to be the most important factor because that is what gives acceleration. Not just how quickly a bike can accelerate but also the manner in which it accelerates. High power is pointless if you have no torque. 2nd to torque is battery tech.
