Super Socos are environmentally friendly as they do not emit polluting gases like petrol or diesel engines. Running costs are extremely low compared to petrol motorcycle, as while the purchase price is approximately the same as an equivalent petrol motorcycle, electricity costs a lot less than petrol per mile, there is no road tax to pay, lower insurance policies and free parking. A simple plug socket is all that is required to charge our motorcycles.
Electricity currently costs around 0.09 to 0.17 cents per kWh, depending on your energy supplier. This means you will spend about 30-60 cents per 100 kilometers on a Super Soco electric motorcycle.
The range of a Super Soco depends on factors such as road condition, hills, temperature, weight of the rider and tyre pressure. Super Soco battery range is set out on the individual model pages. In the TS, TSx and TC models two batteries can be installed for twice the range.
Super Socos batteries are rated to maintain a capacity of 80% of their initial capacity after 3 years. Keeping up with our recommended charging and storage practices will ensure optimum battery life. If your battery loses more than 20% capacity before this time then, subject to compliance with the warranty conditions, we will replace it free of charge.
Charging time depends on how depleted the battery is and varies according to model – please refer to the individual model pages and click ‘Technical Specification’.
