Torqeedo’s new motor is so new it doesn’t have a name, yet. Based on the popular 403 Ultralight electric motor, the new unit beefs up the size, torque and speed.

Where the 403 Ultralight puts out one horsepower, the new motor will produce 1100 Watts for three horsepower.

Rigged on Bonafides SS127, the motor pushed a mind-blowing seven miles-per-hour.

The motor runs off the same lithium-ion battery that can track speed, range and other functions.

Torqeedo partnered with YakAttack to develop mounts for the controller and adjustable pedal controls to turn the motor.

Look for other companies to work on the open-source Torqeedo accessories after the new motor hits the water.

“Thank God my dad wasn’t a podiatrist,” jokes Ric about following in the footsteps of a famous outdoor writer. After graduating from Radford University and serving two years in Russia with the Peace Corps, Ric returned to Virginia Beach and started writing for The Fisherman magazine, where his dad was editor. When the kayak fishing scene exploded, Ric was among the first to get onboard. His 2007 book, The Complete Kayak Fisherman is one of the first tomes to introduce anglers to paddle fishing and hundreds of articles and seminars have brought countless anglers into the fold. When he’s not chasing every fish that swims, Ric teaches English at a school for at-risk teens.
