Amid pressing environmental concerns and continuously rising fuel prices, electric motorcycles have become an essential solution to replace gasoline-powered bikes. Not only in Vietnam, the fourth-largest country globally in annual motorcycle sales, but many other nations are also promoting green transportation and encouraging the use of clean energy.

While various electric motorcycle models populate the current market, not all can handle heavy loads, and their designs are not always optimized. Additionally, most electric bikes suffer from long charging times, requiring users to wait between 3 to 8 hours for a full charge.

In response to these challenges, Selex Motors has conducted research, manufacturing, and introduced two electric motorcycle models: Selex Camel 1 and Selex Camel 2. These models aim to spearhead a “green revolution” in the transportation sector, addressing the shortcomings of traditional electric vehicles.

Selex Camel 1 was launched on November 27, 2022, at the company’s factory in Gia Lam, Hanoi. Meanwhile, Selex Camel 2 was recently unveiled on August 25, 2023, at the InnoEx International Innovation and Creativity Event. Both models have garnered significant attention from a wide range of drivers in the transportation industry specifically, and motorcycle commuters in general.

2. Similarities Between Selex Camel 1 and Selex Camel 2

With the goal of promoting Vietnam’s sustainable development through advanced technology applications, Selex Motors has developed an optimized electric motorcycle ecosystem for transportation, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, comprising four main components: the motorcycles themselves, batteries, battery swapping stations, and crucial onboard components such as motor controllers, energy management systems, and displays.

Therefore, both Selex Camel 1 and Selex Camel 2 are integral parts of this ecosystem, designed as smart electric motorcycles optimized for the transportation sector. They both utilize a unique battery swapping solution, pioneering in Vietnam.

Each motorcycle is equipped with 3 lithium-ion batteries. With one battery, the motorcycles can travel up to 50 km, ensuring normal operation even with just one battery installed. When equipped with all 3 batteries, they can achieve nearly 150 km on a single full charge.

When traveling and running out of battery, users of Selex Camel and Selex Camel 2 can conveniently locate nearby battery swapping stations to exchange depleted batteries for fully charged ones. These stations house fresh batteries that users can quickly install into their motorcycles to continue their journey. The cost of battery swapping is notably lower—approximately 25-35% less than the cost of gasoline for the equivalent distance traveled.

Regardless of which model drivers choose, they enjoy multiple benefits: cost savings, time efficiency, and the assurance of not being stranded due to depleted batteries. Moreover, electric motorcycles contribute to environmental protection by reducing air and noise pollution.

Additionally, both Selex Camel and Selex Camel 2 boast exceptional carrying capacity, capable of handling loads up to 225 kg—a feat uncommon among two-wheeled electric vehicles. Their rear seats are specially designed for easy removal, facilitating the installation of cargo boxes, and effortless reattachment for passenger transport.

Regarding their design, aside from the flexible rear seat assembly for cargo adaptation, both models are fitted with front baskets to expand cargo capacity. They are available in 5 colors applicable to both models: red, yellow, gray, blue, and green.

Known as smart electric motorcycles, both the Selex Camel and Selex Camel 2 are integrated with mobile app connectivity, allowing users convenient remote management of their vehicles. They feature reverse gear functionality, are IP67 waterproof rated, enabling easy maneuverability in narrow alleys and confident travel during rainy seasons without concerns of vehicle damage.

In addition, Selex’s “camel warriors” are equipped with a pair of shock absorbers to provide a smooth and comfortable riding experience, reducing back pain for the driver. The storage compartment of the motorcycles has a capacity of 11 liters, capable of fitting a half-face helmet.

3. Differences Between Selex Camel and Selex Camel 2

3.1 Intended purposes

When discussing the differences between the Selex Camel 1 and Selex Camel 2, the first point to note is their intended use. While the Selex Camel serves as an electric utility vehicle suitable for deliveries, the Selex Camel 2 is optimized for passenger transportation.

In other words, the Selex Camel is ideal for shippers and those who frequently transport heavy loads. On the other hand, the Selex Camel 2 has been enhanced to cater to motorcycle taxi drivers, focusing on passenger transport and serving customers who use the vehicle for daily commuting, replacing gasoline bikes to save costs.

Due to their distinct purposes, the Selex team researched and improved the Selex Camel 2 to be more efficient in passenger transport compared to the Selex Camel, which can still transport passengers but may not be as suitable as the Selex Camel 2. Understanding this fundamental difference allows users to choose the vehicle that best meets their needs.

3.2 Design Aspect

At first glance, users may easily mistake the Selex Camel for the Selex Camel 2 due to their similar overall designs. However, to quickly distinguish between these two models, one can focus on the design of the rear seat.

Compared to its predecessor, the new Selex Camel 2 electric motorcycle is designed with a shorter frame, enhancing maneuverability in tight alleys and narrow lanes. The rear tail and seat are crafted to be compact yet refined, facilitating effortless removal and installation of the seat, thus enabling users to easily mount small to medium-sized cargo boxes.

Feature Selex Camel Selex Camel 2
Overall Dimensions (mm) 2030 x 770 x 1080 1930 x 770 x 1260
Wheelbase (mm) 1450 1375
Seat Height (front/rear) 750 mm 770 mm
Front Tire Size 90/90-12 44J 90/90-12 54J
Rear Tire Size 120/70-12 58P 120/70-14 55P

The rear seat of the Selex Camel 2 is designed with a raised end, offering added support for the rider. This feature proves convenient for drivers or users carrying small children or elderly passengers. Moreover, the front seat has been elevated by an extra 20 mm to ensure a comfortable seating experience for the rider.

To accommodate larger cargo boxes, drivers may face reduced rear visibility. Addressing this, Selex Motors’ mechanical engineers have integrated extended rearview mirrors into the Selex Camel 1. These mirrors can be adjusted and extended outward for better visibility around the vehicle, ensuring safety on the road. They can also be retracted when not in use.

However, the Selex Camel 2 does not feature an extended rear seat like the Selex Camel 1. When using the Selex Camel 1, drivers can extend the rear frame of the vehicle to increase cargo space, allowing for more items to be loaded freely.

The Selex Camel 2 features larger wheels, enhanced to boost the vehicle’s stability and robust appearance, ideal for optimal passenger transportation with its powerful motor. The rear tail light assembly has been compacted as well.

Unlike the cargo-oriented Selex Camel 1, the Selex Camel 2, designed primarily for passenger transport, lacks the extended mirror feature. Thus, users can differentiate between the two models not only by the seating configuration but also by the presence of adjusting knobs near the mirrors, a feature exclusive to the cargo version.

3.3 Performance

The weight of the Selex Camel 2 without batteries is 90 kg, whereas the Selex Camel 1 weighs 84 kg. When fully equipped with 3 batteries, the Selex Camel 2 weighs 113.4 kg, whereas the Selex Camel 1 weighs 105 kg. It’s evident that the Selex Camel 2 is heavier than the Selex Camel. This difference is because the Selex Camel 2 is optimized for passenger transport, whereas the Selex Camel, designed for delivery purposes, requires a lighter weight to handle heavy cargo efficiently.

The ground clearance of the Selex Camel 2 has been increased to 150mm, allowing the vehicle to easily navigate rough roads. With a maximum power output of 4000W and torque reaching up to 140 Nm, an increase of over 40% compared to its predecessor, the Selex Camel 2 is a powerful model capable of reaching speeds up to 80km/h and excelling in climbing hills.

Both vehicles are equipped with a pair of shock absorbers. However, the Selex Camel 1 can optionally install an additional pair of shock absorbers if customers require it to support the safe, smooth, and convenient transportation of bulky goods during travel.

Thanks to its improved performance, the Selex Camel 2 is equipped with a powerful engine, providing excellent operational speed. As a result, users can swiftly travel to any desired location, facilitating drivers to easily pick up passengers on time.

In general, both the Selex Camel 1 and Selex Camel 2 are reliable companions for drivers in the transportation industry, helping to save costs and time. Both vehicles are capable of transporting both passengers and goods. However, for those looking to experience more utility and enhanced performance features, shippers should opt for the Selex Camel, whereas motorcycle taxi drivers should choose the Selex Camel 2.
