Electric motorcycles are exciting, futuristic, and expensive. Nevertheless, there is a miniscule amount of cheap electric motorcycles available. Bear in mind, by cheap, we are referring to electric motorcycles under $5,000 or close to the price point. To find out what these cheap e motorcycles are, read on.
Differences Between a Moped and a Motorcycle
Gas powered mopeds are not as powerful as larger vehicles. For example, many motor scooters have small engines, and can only go up to 28 mph. Motorcycles, on the other hand, are usually just as powerful as traditional automobiles. Nevertheless, there are plenty of mopeds out there that do not fit into the aforementioned generalization.
To address this vast amount of variations, local and state legislators implemented guidelines that dictate whether a two wheeled device is a moped or a motorcycle. As you can imagine, these rules and regulations vary from area to area based on the following metrics.
- CC engine size
- Top speed
That said, electric motorcycles and mopeds typically measure power output using completely different metrics than those listed above. Taking this into consideration, cosmetic appearance and ability to be driven safely on the highway are used to determine if a machine is a moped or a motorcycle henceforth.
The aesthetically pleasing Super Soco from TCmax is considered to be a cheap electric motorcycle. To elaborate on the cheap attribute, the asking price for the Super Soco is $5,250.
