Honda has designed the EV system of the EV-neo so that riders of gasoline engine motorcycles can naturally transition to it. Basic operation is exactly the same:
- The rider operates the throttle, and an APS (Accelerator Position Sensor) converts the degree of throttleopening into an electric signal.
- The PDU calculates the optimal motor output level based on the signal from the APS and information from the BMU*.
- Then, to produce this optimal output level, the PDU sends the appropriate amount of electricity from the battery to the motor.
- Battery Management Unit: Manages battery condition (temperature, remaining charge and other parameters).
