5 Essential Tips for Choosing the Perfect Electric Motorcycle

Electric Vehicle

As the electric motorcycle market continues to thrive, due to its convenience, cost-effectiveness and environmental benefits, it is important to be equipped with the right knowledge before purchasing an electric scooter. Hence, to ensure a seamless and satisfying experience, it is crucial to be well-informed for you to make the right choices. This comprehensive guide presents 5 key considerations that will empower you to navigate the electric motorcycle market with ease and confidence.

1. Convenience of Battery Charging

First, understanding the charging process is crucial. Electric motorcycles typically offer two charging methods: battery chargers and fast battery chargers. An average electric scooter in the market typically requires 6-8 hours for a full charge. Consider factors such as battery size, weight, type, charge cycles, longevity, and energy density. Despite their higher initial cost, Lithium batteries have key benefits such as smaller size, enhanced safety, extended lifespan, and higher energy density. 

At Selex Motors, our battery packs are made from high-quality lithium-ion cells, the Selex Battery offers a long-lasting range of up to 150 km on a single charge and a lifespan of over 10 years, demonstrating cost-effectiveness for users . Furthermore, our electric scooters do not require charging! Selex’s smart battery exchange network revolutionises your riding experience, our flagship electric scooter model – Selex Camel can be “refuelled” within a remarkable 2 minutes. This game-changing feature significantly enhances convenience and affordability, rivalling traditional petrol motorcycles.

Selex Motors provides a network of strategically positioned battery swapping stations across 3 major cities in Vietnam: Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh, and Hue, providing extensive convenient access to stations nearby, no matter where you are. With our stations located near convenient and easily accessible places like shops and service centres. We aim to surpass 100 battery swapping stations by the end of 2023 so that you can easily find a swapping station near you, regardless of your location. 

We understand that everyone has different preferences when it comes to charging, which is why we offer flexible options to accommodate your needs. Whether you opt for the convenience of battery swapping or prefer to charge your scooter at home, we have you covered. However, if you choose to charge at home, our easily removable batteries also enable you to charge them at your convenience, providing flexibility and ease of use.

2. Budget-friendly Prices 

Second, establish a budget aligned with your financial capacity and intended use of the electric motorcycle. Research models that fit within your price range and seek out reputable stores with reliable maintenance and repair services. Choosing wisely not only helps manage costs but also the longevity and durability of your vehicle.

Selex Camel offers a more affordable alternative to other electric motorbikes on the market. Our unique battery subscription model eliminates the upfront cost of batteries for users, providing cost-effectiveness over time.

3. Electric Scooter Optimal Performance and Speed

Third, when choosing an electric motorcycle, it is vital to select a vehicle that aligns with your specific requirements in terms of capacity, load, and speed. Assess the vehicle’s capacity as an indicator of its engine’s efficiency. 

For frequent travellers and delivery professionals, prioritise speed, durability, and cargo-carrying capabilities, to enhance productivity and convenience. Next, consider vehicles with an average speed of 50 km/h or higher, as they offer better capabilities to travel on steep slopes, especially in tunnels or low-lying areas.

With a keen focus on maximising cargo capacity, our flagship electric scooter series Selex Camel is meticulously designed to excel in carrying heavy loads. Its exceptional load capacity of 225 kg surpasses that of conventional motorbikes by 1.5 times, making it the most optimal choice for efficient cargo delivery. Furthermore, its versatile design allows for seamless integration with customizable cargo compartments, tailored to meet specific delivery requirements. Whether it’s food delivery or courier services, the Selex Camel is a high-performance electric scooter that offers a comprehensive solution for diverse urban transport and cargo delivery needs.

Furthermore, Selex Camel can travel up to 70 km/h competitive to most motorbikes in the market. Our scooters are designed for high performance and robustness. The Selex Camel can traverse on various terrains and has the capability to travel on sleep slopes of 14 degrees. Equipped with a reverse gear, you can navigate tight spaces with ease. Experience the thrill of riding while reducing your carbon footprint. It’s a win-win situation!

4. Design Tailored to Your Needs

Beyond technical specifications, prioritise the overall design that suits your preferences and needs. Evaluate elements like colour options, trunk size, saddle seat, seat height, driver ergonomics, and mirror placement. A comfortable seat height that ensures stability and comfortable foot balance is essential. Opt for motorcycles with well-positioned, large mirrors for optimal visibility of the roads and surroundings. Additionally, a spacious trunk provides convenient storage for a helmet and other belongings, especially during rainy weather.
