I've never heard of a 4s or a 6s motor, I could be wrong. There are 4s/6s lipo packs.
brushed and brushless motor are rated by turns 10t 13.5t 3.5t or for some brushed 13x2 would be a 13 double.
Hope this helps

What he said above.

Also in electric aviation and high velocity cars you'll see motors driven by 4s or 6s LiPO packs, which have very high voltage.

Generally a high voltage motor has more turns of thinner wire than a motor designed to make roughly the same power from a lower voltage, say the standard 2s LiPO in RC cars. Otherwise the high voltage motors would fry from over-current in the windings. A high voltage motor is more efficient at converting energy to work (wastes less energy as heat) and therefore is preferred for systems where the voltage source is not a design constraint.
