The Super Soco has been specifically developed to revitalise urban mobility and commuting while reducing emissions and noise pollution. The new e-motorbikes, designed and manufactured in China, are the result of a joint venture between Australian electric scooter company V-Moto and a $15m Chinese crowd funded project.
The bikes combine zero-emission electric scooter technology with the visuals of a motorbike, making the Super Soco an option for urban riders and commuters looking for emission-free mobility.
Features include keyless start, anti-theft alarm and wheel locking, lightweight carbon steel mainframe and intelligent LED speedometer.
A removable lithium battery (which can be recharged at any domestic 13amp socket or at on-street chargers) and a rear wheel-integrated Bosch motor combine to help provide improved pick-up and acceleration compared to petrol 50cc bikes. The machine is set to a restricted maximum speed of 28mph and is able to travel approximately 40 miles per charge with maximum torque of 120NM.
Costing £2,349 (inclusive of VAT and government grant), the bikes are being sold nationwide in key cities including London, Manchester and Birmingham.
Richard Jordan, founder at Vmoto UK says: "The Super Soco really is the best of both worlds for urban mobility – it's a high quality, light and agile machine with great riding characteristics. Nothing gets through traffic more quickly. I was involved in the latter stages of development of the bike and believe that it will be a joy to bikers old and new. We at Super Soco UK are very proud to be bringing the bike to UK and look forward to welcoming the next generation of riders to fast, fun and emission free urban mobility."
