With explosive power, this is the only Bafang motor compatible with wider bottom brackets. It’s very popular with our fat bike customers, or just those people who want the ultimate off road power. We can supply in 52v or at request we can program for 48V. Take a look at our batteries here
We provide the DPC-18 colour screen without additional charge – please bear this in mind when comparing our price to others on the internet – we do aim to be the best value online retailer with UK stock and UK warranty.
It provides huge torque levels (160NM), high efficiency and low noise levels. Please read out fitting guide here.
All motors are reprogrammed using the ‘Hot rod’ settings for your ultimate performance. If you want to reprogram your controller, then consider buying a USB programming kit – available HERE.

Can I fit this myself?
Read our fitting guide here. If you require tools to take off your bottom bracket, pedal cranks and maybe split your chain, follow this link to purchase all of the tools. You will also require a fitting wrench which you can add as an option (above). If in doubt, get us to do the work!
Can I fit a 52V battery?
Oh yes, you certainly can. If you need a 48V let us know, on 01392 580040 and we can reprogram it for you.
Will the Bafang BBSHD fit my bike?
This motor is designed to fit bikes with a bottom bracket of between 67mm and 120mm. The inner diameter of the bottom bracket should be 33.5mm. Most modern bikes sold in the UK meet this standard (but please check). Please choose the correct size at the top of this page. We have a bottom bracket guide here.
What are the (optional) gear sensor and hydraulic brake cutouts for?
The gear sensor interrupts the motor when you change gear, and gives a smoother gear change. The kit comes with replacement brake levers for normal cable brakes, but if you have hydraulic brakes or your brake levers and gears are integrated (ie one joined unit) then you will need to attach these sensors to the brakes. They cut the motor when you brake so that your brakes are not fighting the motor.
The Bafang BBSHD comes with a 1 year warranty based on purchase date. Please return to us for repair or replacement.
