The kit includes the Battery, Motor, remote control, battery charger, and magnetic kill switch.
This incredible micro jet motor can power you along at up to 10kph, although the best way to use it is as a paddle assist (kind of like an E-Bike, you still paddle, but it’s much easier) using it this way you can extend your range from 10km to 25km+!
*Lightweight – the motor is just 930 grams, the battery approx 3.5kg.
*32lbs of Thrust (Approx 1Hp)
It’s not just about making it easier to get around, the other cool advantages are that you can fish or take photos and video totally hands-free, the steering is done via the footrests controlling the rudder and direction of the motor’s thrust. This allows you to hold a position in wind and current very easily. When it’s time to head back in it’s very nice to cruise along with little effort, even if there is a headwind or current.
If you have a partner or smaller person that would like to come along but aren’t strong paddlers, then this is the perfect solution! They can come and really enjoy their time on the water with you.
The unique feature that separates this motor from all others is the micro propeller, at just 60mm wide it creates almost NO DRAG when you want to paddle your kayak without the motor running. You simply paddle and use the rudder as you normally would.
Other motors have large propellers that, due to the huge amount of drag they create, must be lifted from the water when you want to, or need to, paddle without the motor running. This can destabilize the kayak and removes the ability to turn and maneuver easily. These large and heavier motors don’t bolt neatly to your rudder blade either, they normally require bulky mounting hardware and large, heavy batteries.
Here are a few thoughts on why a kayak/Bixpy combo may make more sense for you to own over a boat:
Catching fish from a kayak is much more exciting and fun!
Able to get closer to the fish without spooking them – stealthy and quiet
Can go where boats can’t – shallow and in rocky areas where big fish often lurk
Able to position over fish with pinpoint accuracy, fish finders work incredibly well
No crowded boat ramps, launch anywhere and close to your fishing spot
Short trips are practical – boats entail a lot of work before and after each trip
No need for others to help launch and retrieve, go fishing when YOU want
No running costs – no fuel
No trailer to register, store and maintain, use roof racks instead
Minimal maintenance tasks and expenses
This kit includes the Bixpy Jet Motor, 333wh battery and charger, and the remote only. You will need to also purchase the correct adapter to suit your kayak, paddleboard, or small boat.
For Viking kayak owners who do have a rudder system on their kayak, the Bixpy Quick Swap Kit simply drops into the rudder bracket, replacing the standard rudder with the Bixpy Jet Motor.
For Viking kayak owners who don’t have a rudder on their Reload / GT/ 400 / 440 then you will also need the Rudder and Toe Tab kit. If you would like the option of swapping between the Bixpy motor and standard rudder, then you will need the complete rudder kit instead.
Please contact us if you aren’t sure which adapter you need, we’re always happy to help.

*The latest version, the J-2 is finally here!*
The next generation of our ever-popular J-1 Motor and Outboard Battery is ready, the J-2 is now available.
The wait is over but it’s so worth it. The J-2 Motor and PP-378 Outboard batteries are the first major iteration of our flagship product, which has now helped motorize thousands of personal watercraft around the world.
With this release, we have implemented a number of improvements to not only increase the product’s performance but also make watercraft adaptation even easier and faster with more plug and play options.
Here is a quick list of changes and improvements the J-2 Outboard Kit will offer over its predecessor:
NO MORE MOTOR CONNECTORS: The J-2 Motor is now connectionless – the wire harness exits the motor through a permanently sealed wire harness. This reduces the need to connect the motor and reduces the likelihood of failed connections and water intrusion into the connectors.
SMARTER MOTORS: The J-2’s electronics offer a smoother power output profile, dramatically improving on-water experience with slower low speeds and faster high speeds, and super-efficient middle speeds.
CLEANER POWER BAND: The motor now automatically adjusts to give you consistent power regardless of how drained your battery is. So as your battery wears down, your motor will continue to provide a clean and consistent power output.
IMPROVED MATERIALS: We are continuously collaborating with our suppliers and sourcing better and more durable materials for every single component of our products. As always, this iteration will offer improved materials to ensure a long-lasting motor
LESS DRAFT, LESS DRAG: Taking out the connector on the motor has allowed us to reduce the depth of the motor housing and attachment adapter by 57mm (2.25”). This provides lower draft on paddleboards and pod adapters, allowing you to motor in shallower waters without worrying about hitting bottom. The new motor profile also reduces the overall drag of the motor by 10%. This is a major improvement to an already super sleek design that barely produced drag!
IMPROVED ATTACHMENT: The Standard Attachment follows the same 4 hole pattern as our first motor, but offers a far more robust contact point with the motor, making the motor far more rigid and reducing the likelihood of damage or loss to the motor.
BIGGER BATTERIES: Although they don’t look any different, the PP-378 that ships with your J-2 Outboard kit (or sold separately) now provides roughly 15% more power, giving you more range, allowing you to explore more water.
**Note, it is normal for the motor to sound louder at the very slowest speed due to the slower RPM.
