there isnt?
I always thought that when you get off the power it will start slowing you down?

Of course when you get off the power you will start slowing down.  How fast depends on the compression made by the engine.  Electrical motor, no compression, no engine braking.

The moment you close that "throttle", the electric motor turns into a generator/alternator, and will provide some "compression" braking.

I stand corrected.  I can only report what I was told by AJ Venter who raced an electric bike on the Isle of Man.  Let me rephrase.  The electric motor will not provide the same level of engine braking, expected from a internal combustion engine with a compression ratio of 10 times or more.

It could even be adjustable for every corner on every track as well as for IOM, with no corners.

You could even reverse the polarity incrementally for different breaking strengths, including an engine lock.

But, you are correct, it will not be the same .................. it will be better.

Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!

All possible in the future.  Not on these bikes at this stage.

An engine lock is old news, I have had a few RD engines lock up on me. :eek7: :pot:

Unless it's used to recharge the battery ........... then you could even adjust engine breaking.
