The Voge 500 AC is a classy commuter that could be UK bound

The stylish looking Voge 500 AC packs 43bhp, 30lb-ft of torque and adds some serious class to the A2 commuter market

Voge 500 AC

VOGE is a company that you have probably not heard of in the UK, although its latest bike, the 500 AC, is definitely worth shouting about! It’s powered parallel-twin that slots nicely into the A2 complaint area of licence regulation and it could be coming to the UK.

Voge is the premium arm of Chinese company Loncin, and has been around since 2018. The aim of the company is to build higher-spec, more powerful, and more premium motorcycles than the parent company. The bikes have a totally different flavour to the cheap, almost disposable scooters produced by Loncin. They also succeed where so many Chinese brands have failed – they actually have a bit of European style to them!

The stopping power for the 500 AC is provided by Nissin with dual 298mm discs and two-piston sliding calipers and a two-channel ABS system. The suspension is Kayaba at the front, with natty-looking gold anodised USD forks and a centrally mounted mono-shock at the rear.

One of the standout points of this bike that gets us really excited is the level of detailing and the quality of the kit that’s been used. This isn’t a part-bin special, hacked together out of whatever was lying around, it all looks like decent spec stuff. There’s full LED lighting, including the indicators. A decent size TFT dash that looks like it’d rival anything the Japanese big-four are currently producing. It also comes in that classy looking matt finish that is so on-trend at the moment.

There is no confirmation that this thing will be making it to UK shores, but we do have a Voge in the UK, so there is a chance. We reached out to the UK arm of the firm for confirmation and will let you know. If they do, I’m going to be putting this on my test ride list for 2021!
