The offer is valid across Super Soco’s entire range, which consists of the; TC, TC Max, CPX, CUX, and TSX. All are electric and many can be ridden on a car license, providing the purchaser passed their test before 2001.
Each Super Soco bike uses rechargeable batteries that are removable with carrying handles. This means they can be charged from a three-pin socket in your home, garage or place of work. With no need to stop for fuel or find a public charging station, Super Soco claims this allows users to be ‘both self-contained and self-sufficient’ during the virus outbreak.
“Since the UK went into lockdown, we have been amazed at how many key workers have come forward to say they are using their Super Soco motorcycles for their commute,” Andy Fenwick, of Super Soco UK, said in a statement. “We’ve made new sales to numerous doctors and other key workers and look forward to helping keep them on the road and working. Our affordable machines are a great way to maintain social distance whilst traveling, and with the roads being quieter than ever it is the perfect time to enjoy all the benefits that riding electric motorcycles brings.”
The rechargeable batteries in Super Soco bikes are removable with carrying handles, making them easy to charge from any 3 pin socket in the home, garage or workplace. This completely eliminates the need to stop and fuel up at petrol stations with no need to touch dirty or contaminated pumping equipment, so ensuring Super Soco riders’ journeys are both self-contained and self-sufficient.
Aniko Deierl, a Consultant Neonatologist at Imperial College, London explained, “I decided to buy a Super Soco TC Max because I’ve always wanted something with the look and feel of a big bike, while being light and manageable in traffic. Also, I like to be very environmentally friendly.
I live in Harrow and work at St Mary’s Hospital Paddington, in neonatal intensive care. My Super Soco has halved the time of my commute, and the smooth ride gives me 20 minutes to think at the beginning and end of the day.
If I wasn’t on the Super Soco I’d likely be on the train or driving, both of which involve significantly greater risks of Coronavirus transmission. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Super Soco to other key workers.”
Eager to help out those people working on the frontline during the coronavirus outbreak, Super Soco is giving all key workers a 10% discount on any of its five electric motorcycles. The offer is currently available through participating dealers, including Midland Scooters in Nottingham, Urban Ebikes in London, Whatever Wheels in Blackburn, MotoUK in Staffordshire and Discount Motoring in Glasgow.
With public transport now running reduced services in many areas, purchasing an affordable electric motorcycle could prove to be the ideal social distancing tool – with the reduced volume of traffic on the roads also allowing for some alone time at the start and end of each working day.
Regarding key workers, Super Soco say, they ‘would extend that criteria to anyone who is deemed to be needing a machine to work in the public interest’.
Regarding pricing, the starting price is £4,249 (including ULEV government subsidy), then a 10% discount is enacted on that value.
