ELI5: Difference in motor power


Recommended Posts

Since my grasp of the detailed workings of things electronic is just beyond rudimentary, I wonder if someone could ELI5 (explain like i'm five years old) the different motor power options that are available in EUC's.  My current understanding is that bigger is better; an 800w motor is better than a 500w motor which in turn is better than a 350w motor.  And I can understand that the bigger motor will be able to easier support a heavier rider doing an aggressive lean or going up a steep hill because the bigger motor has more "muscle" to do so.  But doesn't the bigger motor also draw more power from the battery hence lessening your battery life?  Or is it the case that the bigger motor only draws more power from the battery when performing demanding tasks?
