I'm curious on retaining the chassis components but replacing the 200cc IC engine with a 48v electric motor and a 22Ah Litium-Ion with an Integrated Battery Management System (BMS) .
Any advice on the viability or technology approach to prototype is greatly appreciated. If we are successful on the Minimal Viable Product (MVP) we will consider production and commercialization. Initial discussions on financial feasibility and venture funding are on a separate thread.
I wonder how EMhttp://emmoto.com/
approached this. The weight seems similar at 73kg / Sport = 70kg.

Xispa sourced their components from China for assembly in Spain. It is doubtful if Xispa AKA XPA would have survived the judicial demand regarding Intellectual Property on the motor launched by SHERCO. No such issue with an electric powered vehicle.
We assume that the electric motor and batteries may be less costly in China? Maybe cannibalize most of the drive components from an electric scooter made-in-China.
