I have a bmx. The rear fork width is 110mm.
I wish to keep the chain sprocket so I can still use it with the pedals.
Looking for something around 1000-1500w, sensored, gearless.
Can someone please recommend a model that can fit there?

Thank you!

Danger of 1000-1500w rear hub motor combined with smaller diameter wheel is that you might spin out quite a bit under heavy acceleration.
BMW frame doesn't allow much battery placement option.
Unless you're stuck on having the 1000-1500w power output, you're better off getting a complete ebike at $700-800 like a Lectric Lite.
