New 100% electric UK Dealer
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:21:15 PM »

Hey All, Just posted a question to the forum then realised it may be worthwhile doing a post for any of you living in the UK that we have just established ourselves as a 100% all electric dealership based centrally in East Anglia. We currently have Zero Motorcycles and SuperSoco under our wing with Alta, Torrot, Oset and Lightning coming on board in 2018 to name a few.

Unsure of whether a promotional post is allowed, but just thought it was worthwhile for anyone this way knowing we were here to help concerning the above brands and also to help ourselves as we are learning all the time as our other business has focus's on dirty custom combustion two wheels until now!

Thanks,

Alec

I think you've kept it informational rather than promotional.

Awesome to see another electric-only dealer.  A dealer who understands electric is the point and won't try to shift customers into traditional polluting vibrating noisy fossil fuel explosion containment maintenance complexity.  A dealer without that conflict of interest.

It's like flying, but with more traction.  And none of that Z-axis complexity.

Lost my faith in Zero with my 2011 S, but regained it with my 2014 SR.  Diginow SCv2 changed my SR from a fun ride to primary transport.

Just curious about the "Electric Motion"
 range of e-motorcycles. Don't see them pop up often, are you familiar with them?
Good luck with your E-shop.

Huh. For trials events, contests where the goal is crossing obstacles, not speed. http://cleanrider.com/em-5-7-electric-trial-bike/

To discuss further, start a new thread.

Referring to their Etrek model, which is a dual sport bike (road and off road). Their other models are trial oriented.

Bicycle-class vehicles aren't really appropriate at electricmotorcycleforum.com

Motorcycles are 2-3 wheel vehicles that can go fast. 

There are electric bicycle forums and moped forums for the <20mph and <45mph class vehicles elsewhere.  Let's not clutter the EMF.

Not sure if the previous reply was for me but although Torrot do do push bikes, their Muvi are definitely motorbikes/mopeds as are the Super Soco and ECCity. Ie L1e and L3e.

Oooh, how did I miss this? Probably because I've not been active here for a while.

I welcome both vendors with open arms.  There's a huge gaping hole in the London market for a Zero dealership. Green-mopeds could probably sell a few Zeros.  I don't know if The Bike Shed ever got an FXS in. I really should pay them a visit having spoken to the guy that runs it on my commute a few times.

Perhaps there is a cultural difference in the term "moped"

"Moped" means underpowered, motor-pedal, bicycle class, to me.  I would not expect a place named "mopeds" to sell motorcycle class vehicles, or if they did, I would not expect them to be taken seriously.  I apologize if that's not the case outside of USA.

That's also the case here in the UK. However, since there's a distinct lack of Zero dealers in central London, I'm sure they'll be able to flog a few.
