So why a TC Max? Effectively, it’s a motorbike, and that’s an excellent begin… nothing in opposition to eBikes as such, however they aren’t what Australian Highway Rider is right here for.
And it’s obtained 180Nm of torque. Yeah, not a misprint, 180Nm. Electrical engines are like that, so we kinda anticipate it to be superior off the lights.

The motor is rated to 3900w with a peak of 5100 (yeah… we’re undecided what that actually means but, which is one cause why we’re glad we could have the bike for 3 months).

In fact vary and efficiency of electrical autos is at all times a bugbear, so the TC Max has three modes – #1 is an influence saving mode, #3 excessive efficiency and #2 ‘balanced’…
I’ve ridden a Tremendous Soco electrical scooter and located it to be properly put collectively, straightforward to journey, extremely quiet and clean… and I anticipate the TC Max to supply all those self same options, besides with bike dealing with and far larger peorformance.
Apparently the TC Max seems prefer it’s configured as a scooter – brakes are operated by arms, there’s no guide transmission (in fact) and it’s LAMs permitted but it surely’s no step-through. Non-motorcyclists gained’t acknowledge it as a scooter.
Keep watch over future problems with Australian Highway Rider for reviews on our time with the Tremendous Soco TC Max.
