The new Super Soco RU classifies as a Electric Assisted Pedal Cycle (EAPC) and as such does not require a License, Helmet or Insurance and integrates features from a bicycle mixed with those of an electric scooter/moped.
Unlike the Super Soco CUx, the 52KG RU has had pedals added so you can use them in case of low battery. Under the seat there is a removable 6.4KG lithium-ion 48V 20Ah battery with 18650 cells which provides a maximum range of 50 miles on its 16" wheels with front discs and rear drum brakes. Its dimensions are 1643 x 725 x 1044mm.
The LCD display allows you to see speed, remaining battery, lighting and any problems with the bike. There is also the Super Soco app as with the rest of their range able to monitor and track the bike, as well as a remote control to activate / lock the RU at a distance.
Available in 5 colours, Red, White, Green/Teal, Gray and Orange.
Please note that as the RU does is not classed as a vehicle, unfortunately it does not qualify for the OLEV grant. However they can qualify for the UK Governments BikeToWork Scheme providing a saving of up to 42%.
