VMoto, a brand in the electric two-wheeler industry with headquarters in China and Australia, has unveiled its latest offerings under the Super Soco brand. These two new models, named On-R and Off-R, mark VMoto's expansion into the off-road electric motorcycle segment, catering to the growing demand for eco-friendly alternatives in recreational riding.
The On-R and Off-R models share a common platform, designed to provide versatility and excitement for riders seeking both urban commuting and off-road adventures. Featuring robust electric dirtbike underpinnings, such as long-travel suspension, wire-spoke wheels, and sleek bodywork, these motorcycles promise an exhilarating riding experience.
VMoto offers both the On-R and Off-R in two versions: L1 and L3. The L1 variant boasts a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour (45 kilometers per hour), making it an ideal choice for city commuters. In contrast, the L3 version elevates the performance envelope, delivering speeds of up to 56 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) for the On-R and 69 miles per hour (110 kilometers per hour) for the Off-R. The Off-R model, tailored for off-road enthusiasts, features a more aggressive 18-degree head angle and knobby tires for enhanced traction on challenging terrain.
Both models are equipped with a mid-drive electric motor, offering a nominal output of 5.3 horsepower (four kilowatts) and a peak output of 11 horsepower (eight kilowatts). The battery options include a 2.3-kilowatt-hour unit or a larger 3.45-kilowatt-hour unit, with respective charging times of 2.5 and 3.5 hours. These batteries provide impressive range figures of 42 and 65 miles (68 and 104 kilometers), ensuring riders can enjoy extended journeys without the need for frequent charging.
VMoto has launched the On-R and Off-R models in the Italian market, with a price tag of 6,990 Euros, approximately $7,511 USD. Pricing and availability may vary by region, so prospective buyers are encouraged to contact their local VMoto dealer or visit the official VMoto website for the latest information.
As electric off-road motorcycles gain popularity, VMoto's Super Soco On-R and Off-R models contribute to the ongoing electrification trend, offering exciting options for riders seeking eco-friendly and noise-reduced alternatives to traditional internal-combustion dirtbikes.
