Umm... I guess because they are nuts, and love more and complicated devices on their engines? Call me old, but I want simple. As far as replacing that motorcycle battery, I solved that with a Genisis dual battery system, love it. Personally, I'd avoid ANY BSG related engine, but that's me and to each his own.Someone tell me why this might be worth the extra cash to some people....please.
Yes , instead of a $100 motorcycle battery , it has a $1200 48 volt battery.So you don’t need to deal with the motorcycle battery?
Shame really, having electric assist at low RPM crawling would be great. I supposed they'd need a much bigger battery pack though.The eTorque system is only engaged at low RPMs. The torque curve will be relatively the same above 1500 RPM. It will also likely be disabled in 4-Low.
I'm not sure you would notice any difference in 4-low, at leas with the Rubicon's transfer case. I've never found the torque lacking in 4-low anyway.Shame really, having electric assist at low RPM crawling would be great. I supposed they'd need a much bigger battery pack though.
