VANCOUVER, BC, April 6, 2022 /CNW/ – Electric powered vehicles are currently a big point of interest. Electric cars are on the verge of replacing Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle and currently, there isn’t a single car manufacturer that hasn’t made a vehicle with at least one electric motor. With the advancement of technology, another category of electric transportation has started to evolve – the electric cycles. Electric bicycles were the first to conquer the European market by storm in 2014-2016, and the North American market four years later. While the e-bike market was expanding in North America, the next stage of the electric cycle revolution began in Europe – the electric motorcycle. Instead of buying ICE motorbikes, the European population began to adopt their 50 -150cc electric equivalents for their daily transportation needs. Their range of 80 -140km and their speed of 70 – 120 km/h was sufficient for the daily commuting needs of the average European citizen even for highways. Switching to this mode of transportation became an attractive option for urban commuters due to four reasons: their zero emission and silent operation, avoidance of the road congestion and substantial government rebates. Ultimately, this created a demand for personal electric transportation and exposed a niche for electric motorcycles equivalent to their ICE counterparts. In 2016 the Australian-Chinese company Vmoto was the first to tap into this niche in Europe with their brand Super Soco. With affordable prices, their bikes proved to be a very practical and convenient mode of transportation especially for those living in cities.
