BBS02 BaFang 750W vs. BBSHD 1000W (programmed for 750W) - Which is best?

I have this crazy dream to someday own an E-bike similar to the SURLY ECR with a Rohloff rear internal geared hub and Gates Belt Drive. I came across this Good Rotations customer build:

bling ring Archives - Good Rotations

Now that's a bike I can do "almost" all the kind of riding I enjoy the most with one bike. All I'd add/change is a Rohloff, Gates Belt and a 750W mid-drive.

The addition of the BBSHD 1000W BaFang that can be purchased setup for only 750W to remain California Class-1 legal, has resulted in this thread question. The new BBSHD clearly has larger cooling fins, but I think it is heavier.

Anyone have experience with both and knowledge of their differences?

Got to keep the "dream" alive!

I have the 8Fun 750 watt on a older K2 Attack 2.0 and its a blast. At this point I need no more power. The 750 watt will get me into more trouble than I need and FAST ! LOL

Also have the bing ring and works great.

I'm also using the Luna-cycle 54 volt 11.2 aH battery. Getting more than 30 min's out of it. The stock charger works but a little slow. I would go with the bigger charger.

From what I've read, the BBSHD is definitely heavier (around 12 lbs total; the entire housing is steel), but is substantially overengineered even for the 1000W nominal capacity. You're not going to cook it at 750W.
