It was a legal in Australia hub (200w max output) geared so it is a good climber but top speed is 20 kph. A 200w peak output direct drive hub is a joke unless you live somewhere flat and then why would you need/want power assist unless you are after speed which a 200w hub won't give.
Alot of Chinese market bikes are around 20kph due to their laws.
My trike is setup the same as a stoke monkey but even though the hub has an inbuilt freewheel I fitted an external one to keep the load on the pedals as normal as possible when not using the assist.
I like to keep my trike legal as it is fully faired and gets too much attention as is, any more power and it would be scarey.
