Like cars, motorcycles will not be spared from having to adopt electric technology for their engines. When the sale of new combustion engines is banned in Europe, motorcycle manufacturers will also have to skip steps or leave the European market, an idea that makes no sense. In addition, little by little, users are beginning to see electric motorcycles with other eyes, especially those who circulate mainly in the center of large cities, where electric motorcycles offer the best of themselves.
The center of the big cities, at least for the moment and with the exception of brands such as Zero or Energica, is the epicenter of the war between electric motorcycles, since a large part of the models put into circulation are designed not to never go out of town. Where could you go with a range of 150 kilometers? Not very far, but in town this autonomy allows you to move around even for a few days, so it is logical that a large part of the novelties focus on this area, especially the cheaper ones.
And if it comes to prices, the new Super Soco TC Wanderer may interest you, since it has just announced its prices for Spain and is positioned as one of the cheapest electric motorcycles on the market. It is a model equivalent to a 125 with a combustion engine that was presented last year, but this has not been the case until now, when prices have been announced, which, as we have said, are affordable: 3,789 euros. It is one of the cheapest electric motorcycles on the market.
Technically, the Super Soco TC Wanderer does not particularly stand out in anything, although this is not surprising given its price. Motorcycles, like any other vehicle, usually don’t offer great features or finishes when sold at contained prices, it’s pure logic. It has a 2.5 kW electric motor, a very low power that is not even equivalent to 4 CV, which allows it to reach 75 km/h, although its torque figure is very high and contrasts with its limited power: 180 Nm. The battery is removable and also offers the possibility of installing two battery modules (it only has one as standard). The firm announces that with each module you will be able to travel 100 km/h, but from day to day each module does not exceed 60 kilometers and therefore, if you have two installed, the autonomy will not go beyond 120 kilometers. , maybe 130 kilometers on a good day. Charging is complete in three and a half hours at a household outlet (each module separately).
The motor is placed in the wheel hub, while the battery modules are placed where the fuel tank and motor need to go. Both modules are in a watertight cavity, in moisture-proof aluminum enclosures and equipped with safety valves, in case of an overpressure moment inside.
It incorporates a controller called Vector Controller v3.0 which manages the power delivered by the motor, so that it is not too abrupt. This same system makes it possible to increase the efficiency of the battery.
