A real alternative to the 125 scooter, this two-wheeler is a great success in the streets of the capital.
At each light, the Soco arouses both curiosity and amazement. At each start this motorcycle leaves other road users on the spot. In the hiss of his electric machine. Admittedly, the acceleration is not as vigorous as that of the BMW CE 04 scooter or the Zero SR/F motorcycle, but the 125 scooters are not able to match it for the first few meters.
Its main asset: 180 Nm of torque and 5 kW of power available from the first turns of the wheel. The autonomy of the 3.24 kWh battery, which melts like snow in the sun, quickly calms the heat. The Australian manufacturer announces a range of 100 km; 140 km on the first of the three modes limiting the speed to 50 km/h. In real life, in the city, it will rather be necessary to count on 85 km. Not enough to make the round trip to Roissy airport, especially since traveling on the expressways at 100 km / h – the maximum speed of mode 3 -, the autonomy does not exceed 70 km.
