Try My Best to Help Our INMOTION Fans

Recommended Posts

Hey @Jason Jiao and @Liamfind, good to have you here! I am wondering: what is in the pipeline as the next EUC at InMotion? Personally, I would really like to see an upgrade of the V8, like https://forum.electricunicycle.org/topic/11892-ninebot-one-e-inmotion-v8-whats-next/ though I could understand if you wouldn't be in a hurry for this, as even after 2 years there is still no direct competitor to the V8 on the market.

Hi,

Good time to show up.  While Ninebot is trying to figure out if they want to sell EUCs anymore, and if they want to be a serious company that supports their products, their dealers, and their distributors, you might have the opportunity to be come a premier manufacture of the coolest and most practical last mile transportation device to have been invented.  Not to mention all it's other values.  It's not without challenges this device and this market.  I hope you are up to developing a market not just trying to exist in one.  Good Luck!

Thanks, FreeRide.

Hi @Mono  It seems we are thinking about the same thing. As for the next design of InMotion EUC, it's still under discussion. Last time, I made a poll on Facebook about the next EUC.

Check this out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ElectricUnicycle/?multi_permalinks=1884433704987917&notif_id=1541577267684622&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

Please make a V5 upgrade with 14" x 3" tire, 1500W average power, and 40kph maximum speed.

The V5 is still the best EUC you've produced in my opinion, just too slow now for today's market, probably why people favor the V8.

.... and this time, please consider sending beta test units 3 to 5 months before official production, to the main Western EUC markets like New York / Paris / Moscow, so we can avoid the V10/V10F problems.

  

Also, who is @JASONJIAO then? :blink:

Hey, @houseofjob   You are correct. V5 is not powerful enough for the current situation. But the price and the performance is acceptable for the beginner I guess.

As for the beta test unit, we will think about it. Thanks.

@JasonJiao and @Jason Jiao are the same. But he prefers to choose the new one.

I agree. The 14" wheels offer a feeling you can't get with the larger ones. A serious performing 14" wheel with 3" tire width and decent pedal clearance would be a game changer. 

@dieterGRAMS  On my way to make it happen. Any other advice on the V5 ideal model?

It’s been 2 months and I’ve still got zero support on The Inmotion Hovershoes.  @Jeffrey Scott Will Ping me on email 2 weeks ago then disappeared when I asked where I should ship the shoes.  Your support is a joke.  The absolute worst support experience bar none!  It is like there is no company to back up their product.  It is really unbelievable.

Hi @eddiemoy  I guess they might be some mistake there. You can send the details to service@imscv.com my colleague from service team will help you out.

Also, please don't be afraid to make your future InMotion wheels with wider bodies, so the battery can be placed opposite the control board side, where on all your current wheels (V5/V8/V10) there is just unused, empty space.

Many customers would prefer the wheel become wider/thicker to house more battery, not taller, like how the V10F became too tall, because all the battery sits above the wheel.

Plus, I know many of your customers who even think the current InMotion wheels are too thin.

@housejob Yes. I have received some emails of talking about the thin body of V10. It takes some time to change the inner layout. I will report it to our Design Team.

Thank you for your idea, actually we are considering to produce an upgraded V8, not V5. And for us, 40km/h on V10 is risky already, we don't want to compete with other brand on speed. Thank you all the same, we will discuss the upgraded V5 then.

Thanks!

My point on the V5 is that there is a market for 14" EUCs, but no real choices.

Many of us on this forum purchased the not so beautiful Gotway MCM5 because it is the only 14" with enough power for experienced riders. 

I would much rather prefer to buy a new and upgraded 2019 model 14" x 3" InMotion V5G ;) I don't even care if you kept a similar design / shell, as it is still excellent!

 

Either way, thanks for listening!

Have you ever tried V5F+ before?

As much battery as you can squeeze into the shell (at least 500wh+ preferably 700wh+) ... range is very important because in hilly areas the battery drains very quickly making current version v5f useless to me even for short trips. I have the v8 and its needing more battery (I am building 720wh replacement). I like the size and weight of the v8 and the trolley handle is nicer than on the v10. I think some replaceable rubber bumpers on a rugged version would be great to protect from falls especially while learning. I love the lights on the v8 and v10. Maybe consider an LCD display so that users don't need a mobile phone to access and configure the unit. You can hide the display under a protective cover when not in use.

I think more work needs to be done with easily replaceable battery packs.  That allows the wheel to remain small and work for shorter trips as well as some longer ones.  I like how many e-bikes have now done to easily replaceable batteries that can be swapped in 15 seconds or less without any special tools.  My bike uses swappable packs that are greater than 600Wh, and there are bigger ones.  Like an electric car, more consideration needs to be given to the design and placement of the battery system.  If you are going to put the battery on top of the wheel then there is no reason it could not be easily replaceable.

One more note about batteries, I think it is time to migrate to 21700 cells on at least a few models.  I know large supplies are tight, but they are the future.
