Rad City 5 Wattage for each PAS?

I think  my City 5 has a wattage problem

80 150 250 350 are the MAX wattage levels i get in PAS 1-4.
It seems low and motor feels less power than my Rad City 4.

Anyone tell me their MAX wattage for the levels?
Are these normal or do I have a problem with this bike?

Thanks all. :)


Where did you buy your bike?  In some power-strangled nations in Europe where everything seems to be restricted in one way or another, those might be the maximum.  If that's all you get for a USA-spec bike, something's wrong, and there seem to be controller production issues from other discussions on the forum, so you might need a warranty replacement.

Since you asked, my max is 1,620w - but my MiniST2 has been, ummm.... "adjusted" a bit.
Shucks Ma'am, I'm no "Hero Member", I just like to wear this cape.


Thanks Jim, good question- should have said Canada
The max is 500 which is accurate the problem is 1-4 PAS.

Thanks all for any info :)

We typically tour at less than 25 km per hour. But!
Some weird soft limiter at 32 km per hour kicks in.
That is the weird wimpyness you are describing.
If you raise the power assistance level to 40 kmph or change the power Assistance from 20 to 25 mph.
The bikes power and your natural power will seem more evenly matched and takes that 500 watts further believe me.
Ps   for parents or long distance bikers one can always turn the watts down to 250.
