Introducing the all New Inmotion V11

Inmotion V11 Front & Rear Views

The V11 is a significant development in the evolution of the Electric Unicycle, with a number of innovations in the areas of design, functionality, & for Inmotion, performance too. A key attraction in the  V11, is the all new pedal suspension, providing a up to 70mm/2.75″ of vertical travel, that is expected to provide a smoother ride for rough roads & trail riding; in addition, the motor is fitted with a 18×3″ XL tire, providing greater contact surface with the road, & improving the ride stability.

Other improvements include the brightest head/tail lighting ever to be installed on a Wheel & integrated folding kickstand. On the performance front, the max speed has been increased from 25MPH (on the the v10/F) to 30MPH, with a respectable 1,420Wh battery pack, for an anticipated range of 57 miles @ a 20MPH cruising speed.  Taken together, the V11 is expected to be among the most hotly anticipated new machines of 2020.

Comparison of the King Song S18 vs V11

Inmotion V11 vs King Song S18 Electric Unicycle Comparison & Specs

The Inmotion V11 was announced about a week before the King Song S18, so how do these two new suspension Wheels stack up against each other on paper? In the graphic on the left is a side-by-side comparison of the different design philosophies the two Companies have taken in producing their first suspension Wheel. In short, King Song’s S18 is intended as a comparatively short range ‘sport’ vehicle, with emphasis on being nimble & light, while the V11 offers a larger sized battery pack (the largest produced by Inmotion to date), which could be considered more a Cruiser. At the time of this writing, there has not been a head-to-head test to assess their relative ride qualitie—this information is gap is expected to be answered around mid-May.   

  • Suspension: On paper the S18 has an extra 30mm of vertical travel, 100mm vs 70mm on the V10. Both the S18 & V11 have air suspension that can be adjusted according to the Rider’s weight and/or ride performance. On paper advantage goes to King Song.
  • Battery & Range: the Inmotion V11 packs in an additional 20x LG M50T/18.75Wh 21700 type battery cells within the internal motor cavity, this compares with the S18’s 60x cells of the same type. All other factors being equal, the V11 should yield an addition 12 miles of range.  
  • Max Speed & Motor Power: there are several factors that determine a machine’s true power capability, including the number of parallel battery cells, voltage, controller’s rate-limiting, & the motor itself—a higher wattage motor does not necessary translate into a higher operating speed. On paper, the S18’s 2200W motor has 10% more sustained power, but with only 3x parallels of 20x cells each, the limiting factor of the battery pack may see the two models at an equal pegging (this has yet to be determined). Both manufacturers have set a firmware max set speed to 50kph/31mph.
  • Retractable/folding Handle: here the two models have adopted very different solutions for their trolley handle: the V11 has an external ‘scorpion’ style, which appears improved over the earlier V10/V5F type, while the S18 has the retractable telescopic rails extend through the Wheel’s body, similar to earlier models. From the standpoint of efficiency, the Inmotion V11 appears to use the internal body space more efficiently. 
  • Lighting: both designs have jettisoned the typical side LED atmospheric light-show of models, in favour of dramatically increased headlight—in the case of Inmotion, taillight too—luminosity. The S18 has a unique high-beam/low-beam headlight, that dips when there’s an oncoming light source. Both the S18 & V11 offer substantially higher illumination than found on earlier models.  
  • Weight: in this category, the King Song S18 has a clear advantage in being 11lb lighter than the V11. 
  • Misc: there are unique features found on both models; for instance, the V11 has an integrated folding stand, to keep the Wheel upright; while the S18 will be shipping with a fanless 2.5A/84v charger as standard equipment. Each Wheel is fitted with XL >9″ grippy pedals & the lift for motor disengagement function.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will the $1,999 price be confirmed?
    Initially Inmotion had set the introductory price at $2,299, we felt this was too steep for a Wheel with these specifications & have been now been successful to be able to offer the V11 below $2k.
  • When is it expected the first video reviews will be made?
    If all goes to plan, the first pre-production V11 will be sent out to our YouTube reviewers around mid-May.
  • If I put a deposit in today, when will the v11 actually arrive? 
    Inmotion have set a target production release date by the end of June. We have placed our order first in the production queue; if there’s demand, we may have some of the first V11s flown in, at an estimated supplementary shipping cost of about ~$250.
  • Will there be the voltage speed reduction similar to the other Inmotion models, such as the V10/F?
    The precise information on this point has yet to be established, we’re trying to work with Inmotion to achieve the right balance between ride safety & to not diminish the performance of the Wheel with unnecessary speed throttling. The ideal behaviour will be similar to the King Song 16X/18XL, with the speed reductions threshold to engage below the 33% level.
  • Inmotion have the range specification as 75 miles, while it’s listed as 60miles here, why is that?
    There’s a tendency for range inflation on the spec sheets. In practice, even under ideal conditions, the typical range of an Electric Unicycle is 25Wh/mile = 60 miles with a 1,500Wh battery pack.
  • Will there be a protective cover available?
    There are current no plans for protection cover for the V11 , the panel surfaces are relatively scratch resistant.
  • The V11 has the dual-input charging ports, can I use 2x 5A rapid-chargers at once?
    Further testing needs to be performed & discussions with Inmotion about the maximum safe rate of charge. At a minimum, it should be able to attain 5A.
  • What type of battery cells are used on the V11? 
    The V11 holds many firsts for Inmotion, it is their first Wheel to use the larger capacity/size 21700 cells. To reduce the center of gravity, 80x LG M50T 5Ah 21700 type battery cells are packaged into the motor housing (40 per side).  Another advantage of this construction, is it allows the width of the Wheel to be exceptional slender than other models with similar specifications.
  • In the 3D rendered images, the tire appears unique to V11, what type of tire is the Wheel shipped with?
    It’s expected that the V11 will be shipped with the popular Chao Yang 18×3 H-666 tire.
  • Is there a warranty with the purchase?
    Yes, eWheels offers a one year warranty from date of shipment, this includes labor & parts for non-consumable elements like the controller, motor & battery pack. Tires, innertubes, damaged sustained as a result of accidents are outside the scope of the warranty. We offer our Customers the choice of either taking on the repair themselves, or sending it in for repair at our Tucson service center, the shipping costs are not included.
