Updated the CGI model of the Zero with a thinner wheel much more scaled to the real one, here you can see the new location of the motor and the drive gear that will turn the planetary gear teeth located all the around the inner circumference of the wheel. The right gearbox will be used to house the transmission system (We've decided to go with a gear system versus the earlier drive belt design), whereas the left one will be used to contain any electronics and circuits that will not fit outside the housings.

Side view of the wheel, here you can see the mounting platform for the rider's seat. More to come...
