Frequent questions about electric motorcycles

How an electric motorcycle works ?

An electric motorcycle works using an electric motor powered by a rechargeable battery.

When the battery is loaded, it provides electrical energy to the engine, which converts this energy into motion.

Here are the main stages of the operation of an electric motorcycle:

– The battery: the electric motorcycle uses a rechargeable battery to store electrical energy. The size and capacity of the battery vary depending on the electric motorcycle and can affect its autonomy.

– The electric motor: it is powered by the battery and converts electrical energy into motion.

– The accelerator: the accelerator is an electronic component which controls the power supplied to the electric motor. When you turn the accelerator handle, you increase the power supplied to the engine and accelerate the electric motorcycle.

– The controller: the controller is an electronic component which regulates the power supplied to the electric motor. It can adjust the power as a function of the demand for the accelerator and the speed of the motorcycle.

– The wheels: the movement produced by the electric motor is transmitted to the wheels of the electric motorcycle via a chain, a belt or a transmission shaft.

– Braking: Most electric motorcycles use a braking system similar to that of internal combustion motorcycles. Disc brakes, drum brakes or combined brakes are used to slow down the electric motorcycle.

What is the regulation of electric bikes ?

Here are the main rules applicable to electric motorcycles in France:

  • Driving license : you must have a driving license adapted to the displacement and the power of the motorcycle. The A1 license allows to drive light electric motorcycles, the A2 permit is for intermediate electric motorcycles. The license has authorized the conduct of all types of motorcycles. For L1E electric motorcycles (50 CC equivalent), you will have to be fitted with the AM license (formerly BSR).
  • Registration : electric motorcycles must be registered such as petrol motorcycles and carry a license plate.
  • Power limitation : In France, electric motorcycles are subject to a power limitation of 15 kW for holders of the A2 permit, and 35 kW for holders of the A license.
  • Parking : electric motorcycles are authorized to park on sidewalks and parking spaces dedicated to motorized two-wheelers, subject to respecting local rules in terms of parking.

How to recharge an electric motorcycle ?

As with a bicycle or an electric scooter, recharging your motorcycle is very simple. Some models have removable battery, such as Super Soco, very simple to recharge at home on a simple power outlet.

Fixed battery motorcycles must have simple access to a charging station or reinforced socket at home.

Here are the main steps to follow to recharge an electric motorcycle:

– Check the plug: Before connecting your electric motorcycle, make sure that the socket is compatible with your charger. In general, electric motorcycles are equipped with standard load, but there may be variations depending on the model.

– Connect the charger: Connect the charger to the socket and connect the other end of the charger to your electric motorcycle (or to the battery if it is removable). Make sure the connection is in place and that the load light turns on on the charger.

– Select the load mode: Some chargers make it possible to select different load modes, such as rapid mode or normal mode

Leave the motorcycle completely loading. The charging time depends on the capacity of the battery and the power of the charger

– Unplug the electric motorcycle and the charger once the battery is full.

How much is the recharging of an electric motorcycle ?

Home recharge

Base option, the average cost of kWh is € 0.20 in March 2023. To find out the charging price of your electric motorcycle, multiply its capacity in KWH by the price of electricity.

A Harley Davidson Livewire, for example, with its 225 km of autonomy, has a 15.5 kWh battery. Complete home recharge will therefore return to 15.5 x 0.20 = € 3.1.

A super Soco TC, with its 1.8 kWh battery, will be fully recharged for € 0.36.

You have a full hour / off -peak package ? Take the opportunity to load your electric motorcycle in off-peak hours and save money !

Public terminal recharging

Certain public terminals are free (supermarket parking lots and shopping centers), but they are not widespread and often taken by storm.

Paid charging stations are a good option when you are on the road and need to refuel. The average price depends on several factors:

– The price of electricity

– The type of terminal (the fast terminals are more expensive)

– The type of subscription you benefit from

– The time slot

Take care to check the billing methods before recharging on a public terminal to avoid unpleasant surprises.

What is the autonomy of an electric motorcycle ?

The autonomy of an electric motorcycle depends on several factors: the capacity of the battery, the energy consumption, the weight of the motorcycle, that of the passenger, the speed and the weather conditions.

In general, electric motorcycles have an average autonomy of 100 to 200 km with a single battery load. However, some high -end models can drive over 300 km !

It is important to note that actual autonomy can vary considerably depending on the factors mentioned above, but also the way in which the motorcycle is used. For example, large accelerations or unfavorable weather conditions can reduce the autonomy of the electric motorcycle.

Plan your journeys accordingly and do not forget to plan the return !

What aid for the purchase of an electric motorcycle ?

You can combine several aids to buy an electric motorcycle, depending on its power and your income level.

The ecological bonus: This is financial aid paid by the State for the purchase of a new electric vehicle. For electric motorcycles whose power is less than 2 kW, the bonus amount is € 100 and cannot exceed 20 % of the price of the vehicle. For electric motorcycles whose power is equal to or greater than 2 kW, the ecological bonus amounts to € 250 per kWh of battery energy, capped at € 900 or 27 % of the price including tax. These amounts are increased by € 1,000 for overseas residents. For more information, see our buying guide.

The conversion bonus: This premium is intended for owners of old thermal vehicles who wish to replace them with an electric or hybrid vehicle rechargeable. The amount of the premium varies depending on the tax reference tax income and the type of vehicle purchased. In 2023, very modest households can claim a conversion bonus of € 1,100. Frozes whose reference tax income is located between 14,089 and € 22,983 will only receive € 100.

Local aid: Some local authorities also offer aid for the purchase of an electric vehicle, in particular motorcycles. These aids can take the form of a subsidy or a zero -rate loan.

Note: the conversion bonus can be combined with the ecological bonus, thus giving rise to financial aid that can reach € 900 for the purchase of a new electric motorcycle, depending on the net power of the engine. The maximum aid that can be granted (conversion bonus + bonus) is € 2,000.

How to maintain an electric motorcycle ?

Maintaining an electric motorcycle may be different from the maintenance of a petrol motorcycle.

Regularly check the liquid levels: Although most electric motorcycles do not have cooling liquid, it is important to regularly check the level of brake and steering liquid if your motorcycle is equipped with it.

Clean your motorcycle regularly: A clean motorcycle is not only more pleasant to look at, but it also works better. And lasts longer. Clean your electric motorcycle often to eliminate dust and dirt that could accumulate in electrical components.

Monitor the state of the battery: The battery is one of the most important components of your electric motorcycle. It is important to keep it in good condition to extend its lifespan. Regularly check the condition of the battery (scratches, damaged cables, defective indicators, etc.) and load it correctly to avoid a deep discharge that could damage it.

Pay attention to your tires: Check tire pressure and make sure they are not used.

Call on a professional if necessary: You are not sure of you ? Do not hesitate to request the help of a professional, in particular for carrying out more advanced interviews such as verification of the state of the electric motor and the replacement of the parts if necessary.
