I prefer the idea of producing an alternative to the 18XL. The V10F is great for a lighter weight full size wheel but has limited range and speed. Inmotion has never had a longer range wheel and they can just use everything from the V11 to make one but just swap the suspension parts for a little extra battery. It would be nice to go back to more ordinary wheel bearings though.

Someone on Telegram posted a link to InMotion store on Aliexpress, so prince US $2,299 (or about 1900€)   More of product description here:    

Unpopular opinion but Sherman is overrated and over-hyped here on the forum anyway, so many people who never even seen one in reality is praising it, we should really stop comparing so much to it.

INMOTION V12 is coming soon? Rumor? No, it's not a rumor. Our engineers are still working hard on the development. We can definitely expect it before June.  Comment below to share with us  w

I don't like the idea of just a slightly better V10f. I'm hoping IM can make a competitor to the 16X or Nikola. One that has the same range, but with the fit and finish on an InMotion wheel. Would be especially cool to see the newer things the V11 brought come into it, such as the headlight and kickstand.

From their post in the official, it does have a kick stand.

I don't understand where comments like this ("slightly better V10F"?) come from. V12 is confirmed at 100v which must mean at least 35-40 mph (if the V11's hidden setting enables 35 mph on their last 84v wheel), a 16x3 tire (a la Nikola+ or KS-16X), a kickstand like the V11, will obviously have at least V11-class lights, and based on deduction from comments likely 1800-2700 Wh.

It sounds exactly like 100v Nik+ specs with V11 niceties (kickstand/lights/etc minus suspension)--which is absolutely nothing like the V10F.

Hi there!
My first post :) 
@Inmotion Global this is my perfect wheel:
1. 16*3" tire
2. No suspension, because of weight savings
3. No speakers. More simple electronics, lighter wheel. If you need music just buy JBL speaker
4. Weight around 20kg, lighter is better
5. 1000wh battary. 
6. 2000w motor, and powerfull controller
7. I am not a speed deamon, so 40km/h is ok fo me. I prefer torque over speed
8. Round shape shell, for more shell protection if wheel overlean. Not like msx square shape or 16x. No sharp edges like tesla, more comfort wheel.
9. Power pads must come with the wheel. Almost evereyone buy aftermarket pads, so why not complete the product with what the buyer wants?
10. Battary indicator from v8/v10 and speed indicator on top of the wheel (Not like nikola voltmeter on the side)
11. Abjustable pedal angle.
12. Water resistance, smart BMS, and overall higher quality product. Enough gotway fires, we want safer wheels
13. LED lights like on nikola ;)

 

I'm confident we will not get a V10f with the wheel being 100v and all the other rumors. I was just commenting on this guy's post.

I totally agree with  mike_bike_kite 
The competition have problems, and a V12 could be a V11 with no suspension and some more battery would be a very good mid sized wheel. The modern overall Inmotion build qaulity is superior to the other wheels on the marked and the tires are not flying off. (huge advantage..)   But the Hollow motor problem with vulnurable oversized bearings needs to be adressed ...   18" tire is better than 16" Methinks.

I hope suspension wheels will stay on the marked. But that is not a V12 issue.

Quality of bearing wont matter because it's protected by a small rubber seal which is not enough at all, need better sealing on the outside of the bearing like the 3D printed seals with waterproof grease.

I hope this is with smart BMS.. please?

What is this smart BMS you're talking about?

I only know about the esk8 company, Exway, that have a smart BMS where it'll drain the battery down to 80% if not used in a week. And that is quite the niche use IMO.

What I expect from a smart BMS is:

  • Better health info and monitoring, ideally per cell (right now, I think that only Ninebot gives better information than "whole pack voltage")
  • Smart cell balancing that's happening all the time and not only at 100% charge.
  • Performance limitation based on battery health (alarm levels gradually shifting down as the battery gets older)

Draining it to 80% after a week if not used is something that would be nice, but it's far, far less important than those points, IMO.

This would be very nice, not sure how the cost/benefit would work out but on paper it's an excellent thought that should spark internal discussion (still might be a moot point though given the current lifespan of a properly maintained pack)

I suspect that my KS does this already based on the voltage-triggered max speed reduction. A tired battery will reach that threshold sooner, but the threshold is constant.

Given that changing out a single cell from a pack is, well, not for the faint of heart I'm not sure this does much other than warn us that the pack as a whole is in trouble. Perhaps it could help for warranty claims because you might be able to catch a bad pack before the 6 months went by.

If you had to buy a mid-sized non-suspension wheel today, what would be the top choice given a decent sample size of enthusiasts, and what might that imply?

Setting aside the oft-mentioned Veteran (which might be disqualified due to weight and size for the category), I'd say the true comp is the MS(X,P)/RS, with speed being the main reason for its popularity, so much so people are willing to sacrifice build-quality and integrity of electronics/battery.

I think Inmotion build quality and safety will be a given, and if indeed no suspension, the thing they must maximize to the best of their ability is speed, really.

If it were up to me, I'd make it an 18" wheel. With even the suspension wheels being >18", riding fast on a 16" wheel today might prove a squirrel-ly experience. And being without suspension, weight savings can be spent on the slight size increase wisely.

 

Surprised at this given the 16" rumors. But smart choice from a company perspective to go 18" where the market opportunity is (if they indeed dethrone the MS(X,P)/RS) IMHO as the other performance alternatives are going bigger, wider and heavier.

“Properly” is the keyword. It would certainly keep the batteries alive longer for the 80%-people. :)

True, I didn’t realize that.

Yes, this is purely for detecting problems before they kill the whole pack and take you down with them.

The mental gymnastics/shifting goalposts here are so blatant and regularly occurring they have become cliche.

For years all everyone talked about here was "yay 100v MSX/MSP/100v Nikola+ speeds & ~1800Wh batteries" and "boo 84v InMotion & King Song speeds & smaller batteries". And "sure InMotion has nice construction/polish/safety... for girls/kids, but just doesn't hit <aforementioned specs that are supposedly where the baseline should be>".

Well the V12 is essentially 100v MSX/MSP/RS/Nik+ speeds & battery size--which everyone said was the standard we should measure by--coupled with InMotion fit & finish.

Yes, I understand the Sherman came out and supposedly "changed everything". Except the majority of even enthusiasts don't necessarily want or need Sherman speeds or range, and/or they don't want something that is *so heavy*, and/or they don't or can't spend close to $3k.

With the utter collapse in public perception surrounding Begode the past ~year, and Veteran failing to provide a more mainstream MSP/RS-class device (weight & price), the market is utterly perfect for a new 100v MSP/RS/Nik+ competitor with similar speeds & range and a sub-$2200 price. (There's a reason old-stock MSP's are in such demand since the RS debacle.) In fact such would immediately be poised to become the go-to baseline higher-speed enthusiast recommendation for all-but the 3% who actually want & can afford the Sherman.

Edit: this would once again be InMotion building *to the market*. After the largest segments of the market they already own, the 100v MSP/RS/Nik+ product category is the next single-largest market segment remaining. They're literally just going down the list of product categories in order by market size.

I agree with everything you said, except the reason im disappointed isnt because the v12 isnt a Sherman. Its because Inmotion said it was a sherman competitor. I was expecting if nothing else a huge sherman esque battery even if the speed wasnt there. The v12 sounds like a fantastic wheel, everyone loves the 100v gotways and im sure the v12 will be super popular. But to me this release is just under whelming for where my expectations where.

In hindsight, it makes sense from a fiscal perspective as the MSX market is probably larger than the Moster pro/Sherman market. But i was looking for the most buzz more than the most profitable wheel

Will be very interesting to see what Kingsongs answer is to this release

I don't know if Inmotion even really knows what the V12 is going to be yet. They apparently haven't even come to a conclusion on what battery size they will be using yet

 

r/ElectricUnicycle - Looks like the V12 is making movement in its development!

People want something new. What IM does may be perfectly fine and a great business move in terms of expected sales, but it does not look like something really new (speed, power, fancy new feature, etc. - the usual enthusiast metrics). So some people will express that.
