Vmoto Soco has announced that Its 2023 line-up will include the Stash motorcycle, the ON-R/OFF-R dirt bike and the F01 scooter.
The vehicle’s name is in reference to its multifunctional storage compartment, housed where the fuel tank is usually found in petrol-powered machines. Vmoto says it has room for a full-face helmet, sports holdall, work bag or college backpack. Its electric motor has a nominal power of 8kW and a peak of 15kW, available via the boost function.
In normal riding conditions, the Stash reaches a speed of 110k/h (68mph), while the boost raises the limit to 120k/h (74mph). The braking system comprises two discs controlled by a combined circuit, which divides the action on both wheels. The charging times is three and a half hours with a removable battery, chargeable from a standard three-pin domestic plug.
Weighing 84kg (185lb), the ON-R/OFF-R is Vmoto’s first dirt bike-style machine, available in two models. The ON-R comes with road tires, and the OFF-R comes with knobby tires. It has been manufactured with a die-cast aluminium frame, swingarm and long travel suspension.
The ON-R/OFF-R is double homologated to L1 (comparable to a 50cc) with speed limited to 45k/h (28mph) and L3 (comparable to a 125cc) with speed up to 85k/h (53mph). It features a powerful 8kW engine and guarantees an autonomy of up to 150km (93miles). Re-charge takes two hours for the L1 version and three hours for the L3 version.
Previously only available as a commercial fleet vehicle, the F01 will now be on sale to the general public. The F01 scooter is double homologated to L1 (comparable to a 50cc) with speed limited to 45k/h (28mph) and L3 (comparable to a 125cc) with speed up to 75km/h (46mph). The charging times is 3.5 hours with a removable battery chargeable from a standard three-pin domestic plug.
Vmoto also announced an update to the VS1 in the form of the VS3, a three-wheeled scooter with a 450kg (992lb) carrying capacity. It is L1 approved and limited by law to 45 km/h. Structurally, VS3 is articulated in the central part, so the front part tilts in the curve like a conventional scooter, while the rear area dedicated to the load remains horizontal.
