Factory Tour: Shengyi Ebike Motors | Chinese Manufacturing

https://electricbikereview.com/forum/threads/ebr-goes-to-china-pt-3-shengyi-motors.26162/ Mikey was invited to tour some factories in China recently and said that he had a great time with Shengyi Motors. In this video, he’s taking you along first hand to see how they’re made. You’ll see the testing, manufacture by hand and by machine. I hope this video, and the rest of the factory tour series are as eye-opening to you as they were to me. Many electric bike components and systems are manufactured in China and then assembled on ebikes that are sold around the world, including America and Canada.

  1. e-bike I hope someone reads these comments because I know you can do better. Starting with the presenter. He seems like a nice guy but comes off like a bikinied blond at a Harley display with a cheap cell phone camera she knows nothing about. She needs to take a leak but hangs in there hoping for a quick wrap. She understands nothing about videography and less about bikes. She follows a heavily accented fluffer from pr around filming his shoulder while he mumbles something inane about cotter pins and beautiful sunrises accompanied by a boom box playing the top ten hits of the "Butthole Surfers"????? The cop-out at the beginning was vapid — THEN — it got worse. Let’s try this again. Send me and Pete a plane ticket + a hunnert bucks a day spending loot so I can take along my friend Pete to help me with the video cuz I hate editing and he’s really good. We will come back soon, maybe. Then we can find out what and how this company makes and whether it deserves our cashish. If I haven’t lost you by now we’re not shitten around, you got our number. Your son is a nice guy but vacuous and we’re both retired and have nothing to do important next week.

  2. Another excellent tour.

  7. this facility can be for 4 factories (with different names) 😀 they just change the logo ……..etc i’m really tired of china model of cheating 😀 so u end up buying products but the source where it’s made u will not know!

  8. I found it hard to hear what the factory representative was saying. Very thick accent.

    I’ve just installed a Shengyi front hub motor on my mountain bike as part of a conversion kit for commuting & touring. Works great so far especially for its size. I’ve heard they are very reliable which probably stems from the fact they have been producing these motors for a long time and have ironed out the the problems. Looks to be a large factory with a good future seeing how Ebikes are becoming so popular. Great to see behind the scenes of these places.

    15 years is amazing! We’re all just catching up…thanks for tour!

  13. Have there direct drive motor on my RadCity bearing failed after only one year of use Rad refused warranty so not impressed with there motors

  15. China takes the lead in small electric motors. I have done 2000 miles on my china assembled bicycle ,never ever had to service the motor.

  16. Many thanks for Mikey’s interview

    Hi I am interested from India
    Plz contect me

  22. Excellent tour.

  23. After this Charlie Brown’s teacher sounds like perfect English!

  24. they brought you to there factory and raced you thru, 00

  25. Thanks for the tour. I avoid buying anything from China.

  26. Interesting and informative video – thanks much. This appears to be one of the cleaner, more modern of the Chinese factories and the fact that Lime chose them, presumably after technical and qualitative due diligence, is a plus. My question about this motor and with other Chinese brands, is where do you get it serviced? Now this is when my brethren that bought bikes online chime in that their bike has gone X number of miles and hasn’t needed service. Good on you mate, but that won’t be the case for every rider.

    Certainly affordability is a huge issue, but I hope as a community we look at total cost of ownership. Often it seems to come down to, do you pay $1900 for a bike with a generic Chinese motor like Shengyi or Bafang, or $2,200 for a bike with an established brand with a global service network like Bosch or Shimano? It’s all a matter of choice, but if there are mechanical moving parts, friction, and load – I know the choice I’ll make.

    We really need an independent testing lab to evaluate the Nm and kWh claims put forth by the manufacturers and the bike brands that integrate them. There’s no reason to believe the ‘creative license’ Chinese manufacturers take with rating standards does not extend to ebike motors.

  27. Thanks so much for giving us a tour of the factory. Very interesting and informative. It sure does help to gap the bridge between the riders and the manufacturer. Great video! Well done!

  28. The most interesting factory tour as of right now, great vid!

  29. Ebike motor manufacturing is really interesting. Quality control seems so important to the process. What’s interesting is in a previous vid, electrical cables were made that will be married to these motors. Its also interesting to see a new mid drive motor that will be coming to the US. It’s obvious we will be seeing more of these motors on different brands. These type vids are very interesting. Keep up the good work and keep these type vids coming.

  30. Hi Court, I would like to ask if you could do a review of the Fazua ebike motor. I think they are now selling on Focus bikes in Europe and maybe Cube brand. What I love about them is their lightness and also when you take the motor and battery off the bike you simply just have your regular bike. TIA. Peter.

    Typical Chinese owned factory, noisy, unorganized, hammers in assembly line? Come on!
