Electric motorbike manufacturer Super Soco have introduced two new models to their range, the 125 scooter equivalent CPx, and the 50cc moped matching TSX.
The CPx is designed with city commuting in mind, with a range of 85 miles and a top speed of 55mph. Two 60V/45Ah batteries work in parallel to power the 4000W, 126ftlb motor but they take 3.5 hours to recharge.
A luggage rack and two-litre storage should mean the CPx is highly practical and there’s also a USB port and reverse button to help move around in tight spaces, although the bike only weighs a spritely 135kg.
The TSX is equivalent to a 50cc bike for young riders and beginners and its 70kg weight and 28mph top speed should make it incredibly easy to handle.
With a charging time of 6.5-7.5 hours and a range of just 40 miles (80 with an optional second battery) the TSX is only really practical for a short commute to work or college with an overnight charge between (the battery can be removed and charged using a household socket).
The good news is that the new Super Socos are both very cheap, with the CPx costing around £3599 and the TSX £2999. And once you’ve bought one the running costs are very low indeed. There’s no servicing to speak of, and Super Soco have calculated that with the current cost of electricity, 100 miles will cost you just £1.
