The main feature of novelty is the six-speed gearbox. On most cars and motorcycles from its use declined due to the uniform thrust throughout the Rev range, which develops the electric motor.
But Taiwanese designers have their reasons: the high speed power of the electric motor decreases, and thus the acceleration at high speeds it turns out worse than the petrol counterparts. The transmission regulate the power supply to the motor in such a way as to optimize the dynamics of the set speed. Finally, many riders, as they say in the company, just like to shift gears. However, Kymco motorcycle no need cutoffs of coupling.
According to Kymco, the bike is able to gain 100 kilometers per hour in 2.9 seconds, acceleration from 0 to 200 kilometers per hour it takes 7.5 seconds and up to 250 kilometers per hour, he accelerates in 10.9 seconds. More detailed specifications of the company Kymco does not disclose.
