Stash electric bike will be first introduced in European markets in 2022 – Expected price more than Super Soco TC Max
As part of its product offensive for European markets, Sino-Australian entity Vmoto Soco Group has unveiled its new electric motorcycle named Stash at EICMA 2021. It is likely to be positioned as a premium product in the company’s portfolio. Vmoto already has several other electric motorcycles such as Super Soco TS, TC, TSX and TC Max.
Vmoto Stash styling and features
Stash electric motorcycle easily qualifies as the quintessential head turner. It packs in a sleek design, aggressive front fascia and sharp body panels, which ensure a dominating street presence. Dual-tone theme with use of contrasting colours on front cowl and tank section further enhances the bike’s look and feel. Side panels ensure a sporty, muscular profile for the bike.
Some key features of Vmoto electric motorcycle include sleek headlamp with trendy DRL, sporty windscreen in black shade, spear-shaped front and rear turn signals, flat handlebar, sinewy tank, split seats, alloy wheels, sleek grab rails, edgy tail lamp and rear tyre hugger.
Space for mounting registration number plate has been provided on the rear tyre hugger. The bike comes with rectangular full digital instrument console. It is likely that the bike will be offered with Bluetooth-based connectivity features.
At the time of launch, there will be three colour options of black, silver and yellow. While the bike ticks all the right boxes in terms of styling, it has also been designed to meet the requirements of everyday commutes. One of the useful features is storage space inside the fuel tank. The top section of fuel tank opens up like a lid to reveal decent-sized storage space. It can easily accommodate a full-size helmet.
Even though footpegs are slightly rear-set, users should be able to get a comfortable riding stance. The bike has broad seats with appropriate contouring for both rider and pillion. It should help avoid any type of bum and thigh fatigue.
