Agni Motors axial flux DC traction motor/generators are the product of years of innovative design and development. All Agni Motors products are designed to operate in the harshest of environments with unmatched reliability, having been proven in the most challenging of applications, setting world firsts and records on land, sea and air.
While conventional permanent magnet AC motors have only three phases, the advanced Lynch type design of the Agni motor allows for more than 100 phases. This significantly increases torque while also eliminating cogging (the jerky effect often felt at low speed) and low-speed stalling. All Agni motors run smoothly and consistently from 0.1 volts up to maximum voltage.
Agni Motors axial flux pancake motors have a peak efficiency of up to 94%. Not only that, but this extreme efficiency is held over virtually the entire rpm range up to maximum motor speed with a constantly high torque value and no field weakening. This means clients can use significantly smaller, cheaper and more compact batteries to achieve performance and range targets on an electric vehicle. On top of that, if clients plan to regenerate electricity to recharge the battery under braking or when slowing, the efficiency value of the Agni motor is identical to the values of the motor under power which is unique to our motor architecture.
All of this is possible due to the benefits of axial flux technology.

The 7 phase DC is an Axial Flux Brushless motor designed and built by Cedric Lynch. It uses the principles of the tried and tested Agni Motors Brushed DC axial flux motor, but adds upon this by using electronics to control the commutation within the motor. The benefits of the design are reduced maintenance costs and a longer service life. An additional feature is that the 7 phase DC design works with a less complex controller compared to those required to control equivalent AC brushless motors. The 7 phase architecture also benefits from a low cogging effect.
The 119R motor is an Axial Flux Brushed DC Motor 200 mm nominal diameter. Two variants of the 119R are available one with 55 rpm/V and second with 68rpm/V.
The 20kW DC pure torque motor controller is designed to be used with Agni Motors Axial Flux DC motors in electric vehicle applications, maximising system efficiencies in motor and regen modes. It is programmable and can be integrated in applications that require more than one motor-controller.
Agni Motors created history when Agni Racing were crowned champions at the inaugural TTXGP zero-emission motorcycle race on June 12th, 2009. The first ever TTXGP was held on the world’s toughest race track, the Isle of Man Mountain Circuit. The e-bike, powered by two of Agni motors, crossed the line 1st with a time of 25m 53.5s and an average speed of 87.43mph.
In 2010 Agni didn’t just win one race Agni dominated the arena with multiple other bikes also running the Agni Motors motor.
Cedric is globally recognised as a ground-breaking pioneer in electric motors … just Google him!
The son of a London code-breaker who worked alongside Alan Turing deciphering the messages encrypted by the German Enigma machine in WWII, Cedric’s interest in the electrical and the mechanical was apparent from a young age.
At 24, he entered a competition run by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and electrical firm Lucas to create a vehicle powered by two car batteries that could achieve the longest range. With a home-made motor built in his basement, Cedric’s vehicle came second out of 50, much to the surprise of the 49 considerably better funded entrants from the worlds of academia and commerce.
Further competitions saw him refine and develop his motor concept into what would become the prototype Lynch Motor, which used a permanent magnet and revolutionary axial flux that would redefine electric motor architecture. The Lynch Motor went into small-scale production in 1988 with London Innovation and later LEMCO. A year later, four Lynch motors powered the boat An Stradag to an electric boat world speed record of over 80 km/h (50 mph).
Working with Agni Motors from 2002, Cedric racked up a host of prestigious awards including the Guinness World Record for the world’s first manned electric helicopter, the world speed record for the first e-powered aircraft, the Mansura Medal for outstanding contributions to hybrid development and the winning motorcycle at the UK’s inaugural e-motorcycle race TT Zero.
Committed to social responsibility and the democratization of sustainable motor technologies, Cedric embodies the very heart and soul of Agni Motors.
