Super Soco was designed from the ground up as an electric motorcycle, following a $15m crowdfunding campaign and are homologated for the entire European market. Each Super Soco is tested for functionality and quality before it leaves the factory. All Socos that are delivered from UK stock are quality checked in the UK again to ensure they offer a quality product and reliable delivery. An external charger and removable battery are included and can be charged at any common household socket.

Super Socos (available in 5 colours) are environmentally friendly as they do not emit polluting gases like petrol or diesel engines. Running costs are extremely low compared to petrol motorcycle, as while the purchase price is approximately the same as an equivalent petrol motorcycle, electricity costs a lot less than petrol per mile, there is no road tax to pay, lower insurance policies and free parking in some London boroughs. A 13A plug socket is all that is required to charge the motorcycles.

The range of a Super Soco depends on factors such as road condition, hills, temperature, weight of the rider and tyre pressure. Super Soco battery range is 30 to 40 miles and two batteries can be installed for twice the range. Super Socos batteries are rated to maintain a capacity of 80% of their initial capacity after 3 years. Keeping up with the recommended charging and storage practices will ensure optimum battery life. If the battery loses more than 20% capacity before this time then, subject to compliance with the warranty conditions, Super Soco will replace it free of charge. Charging time depends on how depleted the battery is and the power source available. The Super Socos battery takes 7-8 hours to fully charge from 0%.
