Britain’s most popular electric motorcycle brand Super Soco has unveiled a new Limited Edition CUx Ducati electric scooter to celebrate the recent worldwide licence agreement between the two brands.
Launched in the UK in 2017, Super Soco offers urban riders a fast, fun, cost-effective and emission free way to get about town. In 2018, the company became the first electric motorcycle manufacturer to sell over 100 units in the UK; securing over 25% of the overall market and over 33% of the L1 Class.
Unveiling the CUx electric moped at EICMA in 2018, the standard version arrived in UK Dealers in March and has been an immediate hit with commuters and journalists alike. The all-new limited edition CUx Ducati comes in the iconic Bologna manufacturer’s red, and features a 60V/30Ah Lithium Battery and a 1.3KW Bosch Motor. Weighing just 70kg, the scooter offers a range of 40 miles on one charge whilst the removable battery can be fully recharged in under seven hours; making the machine a perfect alternative for commuters tired of crowded trains.
The machine features a carbon structural steel frame, which gives less vibration and increased comfort, and an all-in-one wing-style LED tail lights maximise visibility of the rider and bike to other road users. The machine has been ergonomically designed to allow riders to easily touch the ground whilst still allowing those over 180cm the room to stretch freely.
Highly energy efficient, the CUX features an intelligent high-brightness dash display whilst the battery management system protects the battery from over-charge and discharge as well as offering over-current protection and short-circuit protection. The CUx Ducati machine will cost £2,299, whilst the standard version comes in at £2,099 (both prices after government grant).
Andy Fenwick, Super Soco UK, added “We’re very excited to launch this special Ducati version of our CUx moped, a stunning representation of the Italian brand and helps to add even more credibility to the Soco range. The standard version has already been incredibly popular since its launch only two months ago so we’re looking forward to giving riders the chance to purchase this limited edition version.”
