The UK’s first affordable electric motorbike has arrived

A new zero-emission, crowdfunded electric motorbike has officially launched in the UK in the hope of reinventing British urban mobility.

The Super Soco has been specifically developed to revitalise urban mobility and commuting while at the same time reducing emissions and noise pollution.

Fast, fun and zero emissions

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 crowdfunded project.

The bikes combine the latest zero-emission electric scooter technology with the sleek design and visuals of a motorbike, making the Super Soco the perfect option for urban riders and commuters looking for fast, fun and emission-free mobility.

Super Soco’s stylish design sets it apart from other urban electric motorbikes and scooters. State-of-the-art features include keyless start, anti-theft alarm and wheel locking, lightweight carbon steel mainframe and intelligent LED speedometer.

Speed, range and charging

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 with petrol 50cc bikes.

The machine is set to a restricted maximum speed of 28mph and can 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.

‘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.’
