    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Only InMotion can confirm, but all components might be sized in line with motor specs, and firmware included protection should be here to prevent any possible fire/electronic damage. I would say that the purpose of all the warning and tilt back are their to prevent anyone to go over the limit. Last resort will be a cut out, but electronics should neved got damaged by heat if eveything has been well engineered. That said, already saw complaints of that kind about the V10 not being able to cope in situation not causing any issue with older/smaller wheels (e.g. https://youtu.be/KwoeHF9i9T4)
  2. As mentionned here above, using a charger different from the one delievred by InMotion may void your warranty. I may have missed the point, but what is wrong with the InMotion charger? The V10 charging time is high and does not offer the double port as other brand to double the speed, so I believe the charge circuit is only sized to cope with the original charger, bur never saw pictures of the final motherboard and electronics of the V10 (only found pre-production photos on the net), so can only make supposition at this time...

    Bob first of all, many thanks for all your honnest replies! That s really help gaining confidence in your brand. Highly appreciated! Hopefully none of the 'bad bearing/motor' wheels got shipped to InMotion France and also that all changes that your engineers are making right now will be software modifications only for all to take benefit of those. kind regards Phil

    I am aware that there is no InMotion Europe, reason why I said 'in Europe' but you are right that that was mentionned by InMotion France. I agree with you that he went through the 'grey market' and bought straight from another source he better talk to them but I am afraid that they will not even know if the wheel is good or bad before he receives it...

    Let's keep cool for now... InMotion said that only first batch was concerned by that issue and that bad motors got removed from production line. InMotion in Europe said that deliveries are planned for July siince they did not want any wheel from first batch. So to make it short, if InMotion did not lie to their customers, we should not see those bearing/axel problems in Europe (out of people getting their wheels straight from China...) That is a good test to see if InMotion is a trustable company or not. For now, I am confident.

    I believe that Bob has already clarified that point when asked about increasing the V10F speed: "Sorry but I guess it's not very possible for InMotion to change the max speed officially, since the safety is the top priority for us to consider, and we may be able to do it with a more powerful motor and a upgraded control board. " What probably means that you might be right when speaking about 'under specified electronics'.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    It really depends on where you are buying it from... in US, both wheels are about the same price. In France, the KS is 400 euros more expensive than the V10F. If you are in Europe and buy from electricunicycles.eu, the KS is about 180euros more expensive, but I don't know about the support from them in case of problem...

    I just got my Inmotion V10

    That is strange since KS is reported as 1Kg heavier than the V10F...

    V10F vs KS18L?

    Understand the feeling... I might cancel as well but still hesitating because of the price difference. But for sure 2 more people reporting the bearing problem in the last 12 hours, added to overheating when max speed is really lower to KS makes no sense...

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Damned! another one... too bad! Bob at InMotion spoke about V10F motors, but I would imagine the 'bad' provider also providing 1800W motors... if different? I am pretty confident that they will take care of you but spare parts might be an issue at this time and you may expect some delay...

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    That is about in line with reviews with V10F at 20.6Kg / 44.1lb and KS18L at 21.8Kg / 48.06lb

    In your video, noted that your tire is a little bit deflated probably due to low pressure you have opted for. But at 4'39", you hit a puthole. That might have pinched the tube against the wheel...
