The use of brushless permanent magnet DC drive motors in racing motorcycles is discussed in this paper. The application requirements are highlighted and the characteristics of the load demand and drive converter outlined. The possible topologies of the machine are investigated and a design for a internal permanent magnet is developed. This is a 6-pole machine with 18 stator slots and coils of one stator tooth pitch. The performance predictions are put forward and these are obtained from design software. Cooling is vital for these machines and this is briefly discussed. © 2012 IEEE.
