The AC 23 motor is same size as its sister motor the AC-20, but has been developed to produce more torque. The AC23 is an AC induction motor that operates at 72-130V. It can draw up to 650A producing a peak of 56 HP (42 kW) and 128 ft-lbs (174 Nm) of torque out to 3300 RPM. This kit works very well in a small sized vehicles, karts and motorcycles. Features regenerative braking and idle function as well. At a modest 130 controller voltage it makes a safer low voltage system that will give you lots of reliable EV miles.
