With its head of­fice and devel­op­ment cen­tre in China, Bafang, a leading man­u­fac­turer of e-mo­bil­ity com­po­nents and com­plete sys­tems, was founded in 2003, and sells its prod­ucts in Europe, Asia and North Amer­ica. Pow­er­ing mil­lions of e-bikes around the world, it makes front-hub, rear-hub and mid­drive mo­tors. The Bafang line-up fea­tures the M420, which pro­vides a clean, com­pact dy­namic solution for mod­ern city and trekking bi­cy­cles, evolved from the M400 (for­merly Max Drive) sys­tem, and its 250W motor gen­er­ates a pow­er­ful 80Nm of torque. The M500 and M600 pow­er­ful mid-drive mo­tors cou­ple with 459Wh InTube bat­ter­ies to pro­vide a sweet ride for e-MTBs and speed ped­elecs (where al­lowed). The M500 sys­tem is rated at 250W, whereas the M600 of­fers an op­tion of 350W or 500W mo­tors. The M500 and M600 of­fer peak torque val­ues of 95Nm and 120Nm re­spec­tively. For the North Amer­i­can mar­ket, the mo­tors are de­signed to run to 20-28mph max­i­mum. Bafang’s motor weights are im­pres­sive (less than 3kg and 3.4kg) and they sport cus­tom­ized motor cov­ers and al­loy bash­guards. The new 450Wh and 600Wh Bafang F-Se­ries F-Se­ries InTube bat­ter­ies can be in­serted from the top or un­der­side of the down­tube. A semi-in­te­grated bat­tery pack with a max­i­mum ca­pac­ity of 1000Wh is due out soon. Bafang F-Se­ries bat­ter­ies use Pana­sonic/Sam­sung cells and of­fer two charger op­tions with dif­fer­ent charg­ing ca­pac­ity.
