With the SuperNEX Kymco wants to close the gap between familiar gasoline motorcycles and electric motorcycles. Although it is a full-fledged electric motorcycle, but can drive like a gasoline engine, including domes and switching …
The SuperNEX should accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds. 7.5 seconds should be up to 200 km / h. After 10.9 seconds, it is over at a speed of 250 km / h. More accurate performance data was not revealed.
Clutch and 6-speed gearshift
It has a 6-speed gearshift, so the electric motor can always be kept in the maximum power range. Also a clutch is available. As a result, you can sometimes play on the gas without that this is immediately converted into propulsion. For switching under the ride, the clutch is not needed. With a special slipper clutch you can also shift the gears up and down. This should give a familiar driving experience.
Artificial engine sound
To mimic the engine sound of a gasoline engine, a multi-frequency acoustic generator was installed, which generates the sound of a gasoline depending on load and speed. Turning the engine higher makes the sound louder and brighter.
However, not much is heard in the video. If that’s all, then you could have saved yourself that too.
Kymco also donated the SuperNEX the so-called Full Engagement Performance Package. It includes leek, wheelie and traction control as well as ABS.
Whether the Kymco SuperNEX will come on the market as a production motorcycle is still open.
