Yes, and that’s what some of us consider to be an issue.
When doing a heavy lean, you press the front of the pedals with most of your body weight. And modern wheels tend to be ok with that, even at 25mph. I would imagine that by doing a fast ankle flick one can only apply a fraction of the force of an actual heavy body lean.
But the flick is very fast, and it might mean that the 16X can’t react to obstacles very fast when going 25mph or above. We do know that many other current EUC models do not behave like this.
Thanks Seba, that makes sense.
I don't want to modify the Google Monster connector to use 4 pins, I will leave it with the original 1+ 5- setup.
So, 100v 6A (c600c 750w) would then be OK for the GX16-5?
That seems to be the most powerful charger I could find under 10A which wasn't adjustable and doesn't look massive.
I don't know the exact reason behind this, whether it's a flaw or by design, but IMHO I think the issue is being overblown a bit. Momentary dipping in the event of such a sudden power demand (which isn't the same as the gyroscope entirely disengaging) doesn't seem like that big a deal, and could even be considered a safety feature to some extent (better than a faceplant at least).
I'm not defending KS here, I do think occurrences of high-speed overlean/speed bump/pothole cutouts, particularly with heavier riders, are a serious issue that needs to be addressed, but at the same time, I can't help feeling that the maxims "know your wheel and its limitations" and "get the right wheel for your riding style" should apply above all; all wheels have had their issues, and knowing these Chinese companies' track record (issue-ridden 1st batches that feel more like beta prototypes and shouldn't have been sold as production units), I figure personal responsibility for one's own safety should be priority no. 1.
That's the reason that, now that I'm used to the 18XL's acceleration, cruising speed, etc., I consciously adopt a very laid-back riding style whenever I take the V8 for a spin (and why I'm planning on selling it and replacing it with a Tesla v2)
Just adding my 2 cents, not trying to throw gasoline on the embers of a discussion that has seemingly finally calmed down...
Because they don't need to.
From standstill you have so much power you can overpower the motorcycle and get it into a wheelie that would send you crashing on your back. So no need for even more acceleration
The above explanation does not mean I believe in this technique actually working.
