Jason Vickery Posted September 27, 2018 Share Posted September 27, 2018 This topic has been made to list differences between these two wheels to better inform new buyers which wheel is best for them. as I understand and being no expert in the matter a higher voltage motor will deliver increased top speeds. I understand the 84v MSX comes with a 1600 watt hour battery pack while the 100v MSX comes with a 1240 watt hour battery pack thus reducing the range. I am particularly interested in top speed difference and i know that no one should be going this fast and it should make the point moot but I am still interested in practical or theoretical knowledge on the subject. I am a rider weighing 230 pounds i am 5'7'' and I would like help understanding what my range would be estimated at on these two wheels. a list of the formula used to reach this conclusion would also be very helpful to me. In my mind the faster a wheel is capable of going the safer it may be. My theory is that the further you are from overpowering your wheel and causing a cut off while driving the better especially if you are going to be pushing the top speeds. I have not discounted the importance of range and 400 watt hours of extra range on the 84v MSUPER X is nothing to sneeze at. especially when you factor in that the 100v MSX with an inferior 1240 watt hours has an increased price tag of $200. My final thought is this. My understanding of voltage is like this. the higher voltage will consume electricity faster thus reducing your range further. All things being equal a 100v MSX will not be able to travel as far as an 84v MSX with the same 1240 watt hour battery pack. The increased voltage of the 100v motor will consume energy faster. Putting aside things like temperature, elevation, incline, rider weight, wind etc etc these things i have listed weigh most on my mind before my purchase and I hope we may all be informed together by the wonderful membership we share in this forum to help us better understand and decide which wheel is best for us.
