In the past, whenever one would think of commuting to a specific destination or any destination for that matter, the ideal choice would always be fuel-based vehicles such as cars, bikes, scooters or trains. A majority of the population has been heavily dependent on such fuel-based vehicles for their everyday travel. But the rise in the amount of harmful vehicular pollutants in the air has consequently caused a significant increase in global warming, leading to a severe decline in the quality of air around the world.
Due to these factors, the authorities decided to encourage, or rather mandate, a shift towards electric scooters by promoting the adoption of new-generation electric vehicles for urban transportation to improve the air quality and help people save money.
This has led to a new era favouring electric vehicles known as The EV Revolution. Electric vehicles are powered by geared or gearless hub motors. To understand better about the two, a gear reduction system connects the geared hub motor and the stator.
Consequently, each time its case rotates, the internal gear rotates at a higher speed. This allows the motor to comparatively work at a faster and efficient speed, however make them less powerful. In general, geared motors have more friction, and more moving parts. That results in higher wear and tear, a shorter life span and more expenses in defects and repairs.
In comparison, the gearless hub motor’s stator combination is more complicated. At the center of the motor, it comprises an axle which is actually the axle of the motor itself with copper windings fixed to it. However, since the motor is big and heavy, it acts as a heat sink and prevents the motor from overcharging easily. Plus, gearless hub motors provide better torque and power and are more suitable for high performance e-scooters. Which means greater power, higher top speeds and better climbing angles.
We suggest you factor in your power and weight requirements before choosing between the two.
Here are a few reasons why gearless e-scooters are the way to go:
Budget-Friendly – If you are exhausted with the recurring costs incurred on the maintenance of your gear-box & fuel tank, then a gearless e-scooter is an ideal choice for you. Why?
Because electric scooters consist of fewer moving parts, all it needs is cleaning parts every now and then, which means that you can wave your mechanic Goodbye!
This, in turn, leads to less maintenance costs when compared to fuel-based scooters, which require frequent servicing and your constant attention.
Easy-to-ride – It gets tiring and complicated to ride a petrol-based gear vehicle. The constant switching of gears is a big pain point for most people.
Here’s when riding a gearless electric scooter comes in handy as there are fewer moving parts, which mainly consist of an electric motor, controller, and battery, making it
light-weight and easier to ride! It’s convenient for anyone to learn to ride an electric scooter as there is no hassle involved because you don’t need to press the clutch or constantly switch between gears.
With BGauss electric scooters, you can experience utmost convenience since they are equipped with three riding modes providing you with high performance and high speed.
So now, switch between riding modes instead of gears at your convenience for an easy & worry-free ride.
Time-Saving – We understand and respect your time and without any further ado, let’s look at how you can save your precious time by considering gearless e-scooter as your ideal choice. Gearless e-scooters require batteries to function efficiently, unlike fuel based scooters which require petrol or diesel. With this you can be rest assured that you’ll have zero visits to the petrol station and can go to your workplace worry-free and on time.

In general, Gearless e-scooters have gained popularity over time since they are lightweight, easy to ride, environmentally friendly and pocket-friendly. The majority of the population has already started switching to electric, and even the Indian Government has set a target to have 80% sales of new two wheeler vehicles to be electric by 2030.
