TQ e-bike motors
It is no exaggeration to say that the TQ HPR 120S motor set completely new standards in the field of high-performance e-bike drive systems. It is a mid-mounted motor that is at the same time ultra-compact, very light (3.9 kg), but also extremely powerful with a very high, constantly available torque of 120 Nm and an efficiency of over 80% (over a wide power range). Thanks in part to the patented pin-ring gear, the power of this motor is very strong even in the smallest installation space. With this motor, even the steepest climbs in difficult terrain can be mastered. This makes the drive perfectly suited for e-mountain bikes and cargo e-bikes, but of course also for classic commuter- and leisure-e-bikes. In short, the motor offers maximum efficiency "Made in Germany". It comes as no surprise that the TQ HPR 120S was awarded the coveted "Design & Innovation Award 2018".
The TQ HPR 120S is available in different variants, namely with 25 km/h or 45 km/h top speed. In addition, there are also the "HPR 120S Race" and "HPR 120C" variants.
The well-known bicycle manufacturer Haibike was one of the first to equip e-bikes from the Haibike Flyon series with TQ mid-mounted motors. The first models came onto the market in 2019.
Can TQ e-bike motors be optimised?
Yes! Although the first e-bikes with TQ motors only came onto the market around 2019 and are therefore not yet as widespread as Bosch or Yamaha drives, for example, the tuning developers have not been idle and have developed the first solutions specifically for e-bikes with TQ high-performance motors. Thanks to these tuning tools, the preset speed limit of the TQ drives can be removed, so that the potential of these extremely powerful motors can finally be used to the full.
What tuning tools are available for TQ e-bike drives?
At the moment, the number of tuning solutions for TQ e-bikes is still very limited, but there are already absolutely recommendable tuning tools, e.g. from renowned brands such as Badass Box. If further tuning solutions come along that convince our team, we will also offer them here.
