    So here is the big news from Torqeedo, the Ultra Light 403 can now be purchased with the 915w battery. Cost $2,300. The 915w will let you go all day compared to the standard battery. Also they have reached out to all kayak manufacturers to come up with kayak specific mounts.

    That's it? I predicted that would be at the minimum, the big news, but I was hoping it was something a little more substantial. Can't wait to hear your impressions on the torqeedo that you got though, it's def a cool product.

    custom mounts for each 'bigname' yak manufacturer seems like a big step in the right direction

    It was the reason I held off so long before I bought mine. I really didn't like the mounting system. Now Ill just have to wait and see if they are going to sell the mounts separately to retrofit older 403's.

    Well, that has not been announced yet but there are other things coming within the next couple of weeks.

    I had to do a double take after re-reading this. If the above is correct, it would be some pretty sleazy pricing from torqeedo. Based on full msrp on all components, you have the 403 with base battery which sells for $600 by itself. The 915w battery is $900 by itself. The way I'm looking at it is Torqeedo is planning on charging you $500 for a $300 battery upgrade?

    Memory Maker, it was posted by Jeff Little on the Torqeedo Facebook page. Jeff Little is the sales manager for Torqeedo and sits on their pro staff. So if you know of something different then let’s hear it.

    Nhunter344, you are correct about the up charge. I was hoping that they would just sell it for the difference and not gauge. I really wish you could just buy what you needed. Say just the motor, or battery and so on. Kind of ala carte.

    Nope you are correct. I’m on the Team Torqeedo and knew about this before but told we couldn’t announce it. I just saw that Jeff said it was ok.

    The other big thing is the sale on the 320 battery for $225. These are coming in the next couple of weeks.


    Here is the announcement:


    1. $100 off Rebate:
    For 2018 KBF members only, Torqeedo Ultralight 403 and preordered 403C motors purchases between 1/1/18 and 4/15/18 can receive a $100 rebate check from Torqeedo. Refer to the form listed on the Torqeedo Kayak Fishing Facebook page
    2. Torqeedo Ultralight 403C:
    This is the same as the Torqeedo Ultralight 403, but will have a 915 Watt hour battery instead of a 320 Watt hour battery. It will be available in April 2018. Preordering starts when the product appears on the Torqeedo online store, likely the end of next week. Price: $2,299
    3. Spare Battery Sale:
    320 Watt hour for $225. Available at that price while supplies last. Special pricing will begin when it’s updated on the Torqeedo Online Store late next week.
    4. Existing Mounts:
    The following options are available now for Torqeedo Ultralight installation:
    A. Torqeedo Ultralight Ball Style Mount - works with most kayaks and allows full trim, depth and distance from the stern adjustments required for maximum speed.
    B. Many aftermarket mounts, including those made by Kevin Dismuke, B & C Power Yaks, Bassyaks, Island Hopper Outboard Motor Mounts, The Kayak Fishing Store and other individual kayak shops.
    5. Mounts Being Developed For Future Release:
    A. Torqeedo is developing a mount that will fit the four bolt pattern offered on the stern of many kayaks. It will feature full trim and depth adjustments on a frame that maximizes distance from the stern. This allows for the highest speed and turning responsiveness. It will feature a quick removal feature as well as the ability to stow on the mount for secure transport. It will also be rugged enough to handle a 1000 Watt motor. There is no release date available at this time.
    B. YakAttack Mount
    The mount that was developed by a YakAttack and Torqeedo partnership has become a 100% YakAttack product development. It will be an improved version of the Advanced Integrated Mount. There is no scheduled release date for this project.
    C. Kayak Manufacturer Specific Mounts
    Torqeedo is working with NuCanoe, Kaku Kayak, Live Watersports, Bonafide, Wilderness Systems, Hobie and others to bring brand specific Torqeedo mounting and steering solutions to market. This includes the Hobie Evolve and Wilderness Systems Helix Motor Drive.
    Please watch the Torqeedo Kayak Fishing Facebook Page for future announcements.

    Hmmm, decisions. 3 320's for the price of one 915. Tempting, but do I want to carry around that many batteries?
