Vmoto Readying Two New Sporty Electric Motorcycles

The Australian manufacturer, Vmoto, is reportedly preparing two new neo-retro electric motorcycles, one with cafe racer styling

Super Soco TCmx

Two new electric motorcycles are set to be launched by Vmoto, as revealed in recent patent filings. 

In the UK, Vmoto is probably better represented by the Super Soco brand, which primarily markets electric scooters manufactured by Vmoto at its facility in Nanjing, China. But it is the Super Soco TCmax electric motorcycle that is the base for Vmoto’s two new electric bikes, as revealed by patent filings discovered by Cycle World.

Such a base will mean, if the performance figures remain the same in the two new bikes, a power output of 3.9kW (5bhp), a top speed of 60mph, and a capacity of 3.2kWh from the removable battery. So, these are unlikely to pull your arms off, but, if the pricing is comparable to the TCmax (priced at £4,399 in the UK), they’re not likely to blow the arse out of your bank account, either.

The two bikes differ only in terms of handlebar position and styling at the front. One has a small screen above its singular headlamp, and the other has a small front upper fairing in a cafe racer style with slightly dropped handlebars compared to the other. Otherwise, the two are essentially identical, with a flat seat, no tail section, a spoked front wheel, alloy rear wheel, and a swingarm-mounted number plate holder.

In terms of specifications, it’s hard to tell too much from the drawings, but it is possible to see that both bikes will use an upside-down front fork and a single, central rear shock. The fork is seemingly taken from the TCmax, as is the steel tubular frame and aluminium subframe. Similarly, the brakes bear a significant resemblance to the TCmax, which indicates a carryover of the TCmax’s combined braking system is also possible.

There is currently no indication of when either of these new Vmoto motorcycles will be launched, when they will enter production, nor when we can expect them to arrive in dealerships.
