The Super Soco TC Cafe is designed in a retro style, with every element of its design designed to evoke the 1960s and evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance. However, in terms of technical equipment – it is an innovative electric bike, which is equipped with advanced modern solutions and fully complies with international safety standards.
The motorcycle is a joint product of Xiaomi and its sub-brand Super Soco, with the technical characteristics and capabilities of which we propose to get acquainted in our review.
Xiaomi electric motorcycle is made in the “café racer” style, and its design fully conveys the spirit of the 60s, when the two-wheeled vehicle became synonymous with freedom and independence. To ensure maximum resemblance to the classic Café Racer models, the front round headlight has been given a retro aluminum trim. The speedometer is also in the traditional round design.
It is worth noting the leather two-seater seat, massive fenders and mounted light on the rear fender.
The purpose of Xiaomi Super Soco is to make high-speed rides over short distances. To achieve these goals, all elements of the body have an aerodynamic shape, and in the basic package (as it should be a real “cafe-racer”) there is no windshield, which slightly reduces the speed characteristics of the vehicle.
The model is available in green, black, blue and beige.
The motorcycle is equipped with an electric motor Bosch, built into the rear wheel. The advantage of this option is that it saves space under the trunk, so the rider can place an additional battery there and thus increase the range from 80 to 160 kilometers.
Motor-wheel electric bike Super Soco TC Cafe – is a reliable and durable solution, since its structure has no mechanism for transferring power (transmission) from the engine to the wheel. There are also no rubbing parts, so this version of the engine is virtually maintenance-free and for a long time does not require repair.
Given the fact that the model is a two-seater, the manufacturer has installed a powerful 3000-watt motor (peak power reaches 5000 watts), the torque is 150 Nm. The engine is highly dynamic and can accelerate to a maximum speed of 65-70 km/h in a matter of seconds.
Due to the lack of acceleration time transmission Super Soco TC Cafe electric bike can easily compete even with petrol models. In general, the start is very smooth, as the effort goes directly to the wheel. But at the same time, in terms of its class, in terms of the law, it continues to belong to the electric scooters, so you need only have a license category “M” to drive.
To start the engine, a Start-Stop button is used.
