Electric motorcycle manufacturer Super73 made waves earlier this year with the release of the C1X, positioning it as a step beyond traditional e-bikes for riders seeking more speed without venturing into the moped or scooter category.
Capable of exceeding 85 mph (137 km/h) and boasting a range of over 150 miles with an extended battery, the C1X merges the familiarity of e-bikes with the performance of motorcycles.
Building on the success of the C1X, Super73 showcased two new concepts at EICMA 2023. The El Jefe, a scrambler-style motorcycle, presents a rugged design with a robust front wheel, knobby tires, and extended mudguards.
Beyond its aggressive aesthetics, the El Jefe features upgraded front suspension with long-travel capability, a reconfigured rear seat transformed into a bench for improved comfort and maneuverability, and a metal bash plate for protection against stone spray and impacts.
In contrast, the C1X Le Pew Café Super Sport, described by Super73, adopts a café racer style with retro-racer inspired looks, a bikini fairing, and clip-on bars. Noteworthy adjustments include a lowered front end, offering riders a more aerodynamic and aggressive riding position, achieved through higher fork placement in the triple clamp.
While specific motor power and specs for the C1X haven't been officially disclosed by Super73, the impressive 100–150-mile (160–240 km) range and top speed of 85 mph (137 km/h) hint at a motor output likely falling within the range of 10–15 kW.
Both new concepts showcase Super73's commitment to diversifying its electric motorcycle offerings, catering to riders who prioritize enjoyment over outright performance in the burgeoning electric two-wheeler market.
