Could this be a viable alternative to the petrol-powered motorbike? The Super Soco TC Max was Move Electric's best electric motorbike of 2022, and here's why...

In terms of straight line performance, there are three riding modes to choose from, but don’t go thinking that these are high-tech motor management programmes that change power output and regen settings. Instead the riding modes do little more than cap the top speed: setting 1’ limits it to 30mph, ‘2’ restricts it to 40mph and ‘3’ allows you to reach a claimed 60mph.

In truth, everytime I jumped on the TC Max I selected setting 3 and forgot about it. This gave me the performance keep up with other commuter bikes away from the lights and also gave me the ability to sit at a comfortable speed on inner city ring roads. The only real complaint I had was that the throttle connection is fairly sloppy and you get a small amount of surge on a constant throttle; trying to hold a steady 30mph past speed cameras was a challenge.

The reason I say it looks premium from a distance, though, is because once you get up and close with the TC Max you start to notice that its build quality is more reflective of its budget price. The plastics, for example, feel flimsy and the single round dial was too dim to read accurately in wet conditions.

And while the the keyless ignition and built-in immobilizer are nice touches, I found that the alarm system would turn on at random. I would therefore recommend keeping the key fob in an easily accessible pocket because the chances are you’ll be reaching for it rather frequently.

Indeed, we reckon the TC Max represents a turning point for electric motorcycles, because for once, we can say that this electric-powered bike is a credible alternative to a petrol powered machine.

Most motorcycles range are in excess of 150 miles This is 50 miles. Ok in City but a decent commute is a no-go. Price is near a Jap 125 though 👍

No, it’s a possible alternative to a commuter scooter but with less than 50 miles it’s not a mb replacement.
