Bafang BBSHD 1000W 48V Mid-Drive Electric Bike Motor Conversion Kit with Display

£599.00 inc VAT


If you’re here, you probably already know that the BBSHD is the most powerful motor we stock!

The Bafang BBSHD 1000W 48V mid-drive motor is not legal for on road use.

It is a cadence sensing motor. With this motor, you can set your desired level of assistance, and for each pedal rotation, the motor will deliver the designated amount of power. The Bafang motor provides a choice of either five or nine different modes to select from, allowing you to customise your level of assistance.

If you want to travel shorter distances at high speeds, this the motor for you!

With explosive power, the Bafang BBSHD 1000W 48V mid-drive motor 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.  Take a look at our batteries here.

We include a screen of your choice at no extra cost. When comparing our prices with others online, remember that our goal is to offer the best value, complete with UK stock and UK warranty.

The BBSHD motor is waterproofed for normal UK use. In other words they are fine with rain, frost, snow and mud. However it is not designed to be submerged in water.

It provides huge torque levels (160NM), high efficiency and low noise levels.  Please read our fitting guide here.

If you want to reprogram your controller, then consider buying a USB programming kit – available HERE.

Can I fit this myself?

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. We can provide you with a fitting wrench if needed – make sure to add it as an option (above). However, if in doubt, get us to do the work!

Can I fit a 52V battery?

No, you will require a 48V Battery.

Will the Bafang BBSHD 1000W 48V mid-drive motor fit my bike?

This motor is designed to fit bikes with a bottom bracket of between 68mm and 120mm. The inner diameter of the bottom bracket should be 33.5mm. Importantly, most modern bikes sold in the UK meet this standard, but it is important to verify this for your specific bike. 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 helps achieve smoother gear changes by pausing the motor during shifts. The kit includes brake levers for cable brakes, but with hydraulic brakes or integrated gear-brake units, you need to attach brake sensors. These sensors stop the motor when braking to prevent conflict with the brakes.
