Electric ?
« on: November 28, 2021, 02:26:17 PM »
  Has anyone  thought of replacing their ageing GW with an electric bike?
 I largely use mine for a 15 mile commute and never get out of the 40mph speed limit.
It seems logical to downsize.
   This is a comparison with the  Super Soco TC MAX: ; an electric bike comparable to a rather slow 125.

    GW                          
185Kg
24bhp
80-mph
80 mpg  (imperial)

  TC
100Kg
7.5bhp
60mph (claimed)
70 miles range (claimed)

  I reckon the  TC might prove quicker off the mark than the GW   which sometimes struggles to keep pace with electric carrs away from the lights  :003: 
  In case anyoune was wondering , Super Soco   are made in China  - just like the "Zuma"    :002:

I see one come past my house most weekdays on a commute. I expect the range claim will be optimistic, just as most car ones are. I guess the payback time will be massive with a ticket price of over 4K and I expect they will be almost worthless once they are a few years old and the battery is not holding so much charge. I shan’t be going electric until I have to, car or bike.

For me the infrastructure just isn't in place now. I chose the Inazuma because it's pretty good at everything, having the exact same bike with an battery charged motor would mean it's no longer that same bike.
