The Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed the daily habits of a significant part of the population. In the field of mobility, it has arrived at a key moment and its consequences are being decisive when it comes to understanding how we move in our day to day, especially in urban environments. And, as a consequence, the electric motorcycle is experiencing one of its best moments .
With the return to in-person work, trips by public transport have fallen , although traffic maintains its usual levels. One of the solutions for cities is the electric motorcycle , which is also reflected in its sales.
From Anesdor (National Association of Companies in the Two-Wheel Sector) they provide data on registrations of motorcycles and mopeds this year. In 2021, 6,654 electric motorcycles were sold in our country, below the 7,418 last year. However, its market share is 4%, significantly higher than the 2.76% of the electric car. It is 10.3 percent less than in 2020, but it must be taken into account that the Moves aid Plans have been losing strength and few communities have joined in the last extension.
Where the electric market does triumph is among mopeds . They represent 29.2 percent of sales but we must take into account the registrations by fleets that make shared-use services, which can distort the general picture.
Why is an electric motorcycle interesting?
The electric motor has become a very interesting solution for those looking for an alternative vehicle for their daily trips, especially in the city, without being influenced by anti-pollution restrictions and for which they do not need to make a significant outlay of money .
Any of these arguments are interesting for the coming years. Low emission zones will be mandatory in all cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants from 2023. The motorcycle is an agile and fast means of private transport for small daily journeys . And, in addition, you can benefit from between 1,100 and 1,300 euros of purchase assistance with the Moves III Plan.
The motorcycles with greater autonomy for a lower price
If you think that this means of transport can fit into your way of moving, here is a list of the motorcycles with greater autonomy that you can find at a lower price . To choose them we have set a maximum limit of 6,000 euros, without the Moves III Plan discounts applied.
Sunra Ange (3,349.95 euros without Moves III discounts)
The Sunra Ange is the cheapest electric motorcycle on this list. And, despite everything, it promises to reach a maximum of 130 kilometers of autonomy . A very striking figure for its price. These figures are obtained from two batteries whose weight is 12 kg each. In addition, it includes boot with fingerprint reader or charging via USB.
- Autonomy : maximum of 130 kilometers
- Price : 3,349.95 euros without discounts Moves III.
Niu NQi GTS (from 3,999 euros without Moves III discounts)
Niu has become one of the references when the words “motorbike”, “electric” and “cheap” are mentioned in the same sentence. There are cheaper options but we chose the Niu NQi GTS as our first choice for having an attractive design and a promised range of at least 75 kilometers with a load of 70 kg and good ambient temperature. For 1,000 euros more you can increase its autonomy, but we prefer to jump to the next proposal.
- Autonomy : between 75 and 161 kilometers (with E-Save mode activated)
- Price : 3,999 euros without Moves III discounts.
Niu MQiGT EVO Standard Range (4,999 euros without Moves III discounts)
With a more packaged feel, the Niu MQiGT EVO Standard Range arrives with capabilities to take into account. It supports loads of up to 275 kg, accelerates up to a maximum of 100 km/h and its batteries, although 14 kg, announce a range very similar to the previous model. What do we gain in this case? Greater reactivity in acceleration and a larger motorcycle, which always gives extra security.
- Autonomy : 75 kilometers of autonomy.
- Price : 4,999 euros without Moves III discounts.
Super Soco TC Max (4,649 euros without Moves III discounts)
With a more aggressive aesthetic, the Super Soco TC Max is one of the most attractive options. Its approved range is 92 kilometers but the brand promises that it can reach 110 kilometers between recharges. Its biggest problem is that the battery weighs 22 kg and takes between eight and nine hours in a conventional socket. With fast charging the time is reduced to four hours. Its top speed is 95 km/h.
- Autonomy : 75 kilometers of approved autonomy.
- Price : 4.6499 euros without discounts Moves III.
Seat Mó 125 (5,450 euros without Moves III discounts)
Seat’s commitment to micromobility has given us this Mó 125, a scooter with a removable battery (which can also power other devices), a maximum speed of 95 km/h and more than 125 kilometers of autonomy , one of the largest in the article.
- Autonomy : more than 125 kilometers of autonomy.
- Price : 5,450 euros without discounts Moves III.
Super Soco CPX (5,489 euros without Moves III discounts and with two batteries)
Also with scooter aesthetics, the Super Soco CPX is the brand’s most ambitious bet. With a battery, this electric motorcycle costs 4,289 euros but it may be worth it for a little more to venture up to 5,489 euros and extend the approved range from 72 to 137 kilometers , a distance to keep in mind. Each battery weighs 18.5 kg and can be charged in three and a half hours.
- Autonomy : 137 kilometers of approved autonomy.
- Price : 5,489 euros without Moves III discounts.
Silence S01 (5,650 euros without Moves III discount)
The Silence S01 is probably the most original concept in the entire article. This motorcycle, which has 127 kilometers of autonomy, has a removable 5.6 kWh battery. This can also be used as an electrical power supply for other devices as it has a 60 V to 220 V transformer with two inputs. But, even if you live in Barcelona, you can exchange a used battery for a fully charged one at one of the stations they have.
- Autonomy : 127 kilometers of approved autonomy.
- Price : 5,650 euros without Moves III discounts.
Vogue ER10 (5,889 euros without Moves III discounts)
The Vogue electric model without institutional discounts starts at 5,889 euros. While it is true that the minimum promised range is 75 kilometers, it must also be recognized that this Vogue provides interesting details such as a brake with ABS , liquid cooling for the engine or a large 16-liter glove box with USB inputs. Its maximum speed is 90 km/h and its battery can be charged in four hours with a 20A plug.
- Autonomy : 75 kilometers of autonomy.
- Price : 5,889 euros without Moves III discounts.
Bravo GLE 2021 (5,900 euros without Moves III discounts)
We close the article with an electric motorcycle with many attributes, the Bravo GLE 2021. This model (to which a beautiful multitubular structure can be added) remains on the verge of 6,000 euros with its 115 km/h top speed, the promise 100 kilometers of autonomy and a charge of around five hours.
- Autonomy : up to 100 kilometers of autonomy.
- Price : 5,900 euros without discounts Moves III.
