Riding the most expensive electric scooter Leave a comment


Super Soco CPx is the flagship Super Soco scooter in Nepal. As expected from a flagship product, the Super Soco CPx is loaded in style, features, and more. However, there is one small hiccup. It comes with a price equivalent to premium two-wheelers.

Super Soco CPx price in Nepal is Rs 459,000 to Rs 589,000. If you are anything like me, you might find the pricing a bit… much. I know, I did.

Setting apart my personal bias, I decided to be more practical. For the Super Soco CPx, I decided to use it as my daily driver over my petrol-guzzling scooter. I will report more on that front in the Super Soco CPx full review. Until then, this is my initial impression.

Super Soco CPx First Ride

Design 

Let’s start our list of the most eye-catching parts of the scooter, the design.

It has been designed from the ground up, especially with city-wide commutes in mind. So, the design is aggressive but practical. Inspired by the maxi-scooter, CPx feels like one too. The front section is bulkier with textured panels, complete with an independent handlebar. Moreover, the setup is further enhanced thanks to the menacing-looking dual LED headlamps and a large windshield.

Moving to the side portion, the styling gets even more aggressive. The aggressive tires, exposed chassis, metal footpegs, and comfortable seats are hallmarks of CPx. Moreover, the side indicators are LED and integrated within the body.

These elements proudly showcase its sporty character. Moreover, the 3D emblem is a nice touch. Staying on the side profile, the length of the scooter is more apparent. It features the longest seats I have ever seen. Additionally, it is well-cushioned and comfortable. The rear section gets a metal bar, which also serves a practical purpose. Interestingly, there is a single-strip LED tail lamp along with a tire hugger. Compared to the rest of the e-Scooter, it feels simple but effective.

Performance 

Super Soco CPX is powered by a 4000W EEC engine that can generate a max torque of 171Nm. It is capable of an impressive top speed of 95Km/h. Moreover, it comes with a 60V45AH battery with a 15A fast charger.

Super Soco Nepal claims a charging time of 3.5hrs and a claimed range of 100Km. Honestly, these are impressive specs, even for a 150cc equivalent scooter. So, it will be very interesting to put all of these claims to the test. It should be noted that Super Soco is offering a three year warranty on the battery and a two year warranty on the motor.

First ride experience 

I was already impressed with CUx, an entry-level Super Soco e-Scooter. So, my initial expectations were high for CPx, a more powerful sibling as well. Especially with its high asking price, there was no room for mistakes.

With that, I tested it out for the few hours or so. The performance is amazing… taking us by a complete surprise.

There are three Modes, each mode more powerful than the next. However, Mode one was quite literally enough for the streets of Kathmandu. With kerb weight coming in at 115kg, the scooter might feel a little bit on the heavier side. However, it did not affect the overall cornering ability. Plus, the scooter remained stable and sturdy in the initial ride conditions.

There are two things I loved the most: punch feel and comfortable seats. If I remember correctly, I liked both of those elements in its younger brother, CUx as well. Interestingly, these elements are more refined in Super Soco CPx.

Super Soco has improved on other elements like larger performance motor, premium built quality, larger battery, and more range. It should be noted that these are claimed improvements.We will be sure to test out every claim for our full review. Until then, this has been our first ride impression of Super Soco CPx.
