    Evoke has replaced their electric 60kph/65km entry level Urban with their new 130kph/170km Urban S. Their new model is much improved and appears to be a reasonably priced, (albeit slower), alternative to a Zero S

    From their website:

    "The Evoke Urban S pulls hard to speeds up to 130 kph and offers in-city range of up to 170 kilometers per charge."

    "The combination of RiderTech and the Evoke Urban S makes your riding experience more intuitive and keeps you in control of how you want to ride, the way you want to ride.

    The Evoke Urban S uses a state of the art high power hub motor, which provides high torque to dart out of harms way. Evoke's 16" hub motor is also maintenance-free, saving you time from the repair shop and getting you back on the road."

    0 to 60kph in 6 seconds? That's a driver's race with a Toyota Prius. No thanks.

    Oh dang. I didn't catch that it was kph not mph. Let's hope that it was a misprint :hmmmmm

    Looking at each mfr.'s specs:

    ZERO S ZF13.0 torque 68ft/lb weight 205kg 0-60 5.8 seconds
    Evoke Urban S torque 86ft/lb weight 170kg 0-60 6 seconds?

    All things being equal, the Urban S should be quicker to 60 with 35 kilos less to haul and 20 more ft/lb but the Zero has more amperage with a 420A controller vs the Urban's 400A and the Zero packs twice the turning power with a 40KW(54hp) motor vs the Urban's 10KW (13.5hp). Maybe they meant kph after all :/ Thanks for pointing that out.

    Anyhow, if that's the case and Tesla-like acceleration isn't a necessity, the Urban S might be a good alternative to a Zero S with it's lower price.

    Just announced: The Urban S is coming to the US and the price has gone up. I just hope the acceleration has also increased in proportion.

    Evoke’s ~$10,000 electric motorcycle built by iPhone-maker Foxconn is coming to the US

    EVOKE MOTORCYCLES

    Evoke Motorcycles, an emerging electric motorcycle maker, is ready to expand its production and bring its bikes to the US through a new partnership with manufacturing giant Foxconn, the maker of the iPhone.

    They are going for the lower-end of the market. The company is taking $200 down payments until the end of April in order to lock in a pre-order price of $9,400 fo the Urban S.

    The first deliveries in the US are planned for July.

    Nathan Siy, CEO of Evoke Electric Motorcycles, said about the announcement:

    “We want riders and non-riders to get a chance to access the world of electric motorcycles and we have tried to strip back all the usual barriers including price.”

    The company delivered 120 vehicles last year and they expect that 2017 will be a breakout year for them with around 2,000 motorcycles to be produced through the new manufacturing partnership with Foxconn.

    They updated the features with the 2017 version, which is now equipped with Samsung SDI cells for a 9 kWh battery pack. Siy says that it enables a range of 124 miles (200 km) in the city and 74 miles (120 km) on the highway.

    The 19 kW motor delivers 86 lb-ft of torque and a top speed of 81 mph (130 km/h).

    Evoke Motorcycles, which was founded by European, American and Canadian expatriates living in Beijing, appears to be testing the US market with this relatively cheap European-style motorcycle. The company plans to leverage its electric powertrain to broaden its lineup with two new vehicles, a cruiser and a cafe racer, expected later this year.

    What do you think? Zero Motorcycles could soon have some serious competition?

    Definitely a market for a medium range mid priced electric.

    Or just buy a leftover Victory Empuse, with nicer components, bigger battery and quicker acceleration for $6k.

    Evoke Electric Motorcycles adding charge control capabilities
    05 April 2018

    Evoke Electric Motorcycles is adding EV Charge Control capabilities into its bikes. EV Charge Control will enable smart charging on Evoke motorcycles to maximize the safety, efficiency, and overall longevity of Evoke battery packs while limiting over-charging at high temperatures and deep discharges which cause damage to lithium-based battery packs.

    EV Charge Control is a common feature that is standard in many EV automobiles but Evoke plans to be the first electric motorcycle manufacturer to add charge control features to its 2018 line-up of electric two-wheelers.

    Evoke will be introducing the following smart charging features via Evoke’s EV Charge Control:
    • Charge speed: allows the rider to alternate between slow and fast charging to better suit their charging habits and to prevent over charging.

    • Long life/Long range: enables smart charging to limit maximum battery SoC (State of Charge) to just under 100%, which optimizes battery pack cycle life over many years of use, or prioritizes maximum range per charge over battery pack longevity.

    • Storage Mode: a pre-set EV Charge Control mode for situations where bike storage is necessary over periods of 3 months or longer. By enabling Storage Mode EV Charge Control, the Evoke motorcycle can remained plugged in to a power source while maintaining a constant charge of 50% which will prevent battery pack degradation over long periods of storage.

    Evoke’s EV Charge Control features will be made available via OTA (over the air) updates in select markets.

    Hey, this is good news! It will automate the "stuff" I do, manually, to these e-rides.

    This idea is nothing new -- every Samsung Note 4 has this battery-customization feature.

    What's the eVoke's sales stats now? And where sold?

    Btw, fyi, there are stealth sales of el-moto's like eVoke from manufacturers .. done as "sample units" to distributors. The distributors are not suppossed to sell them .. haha.

    It's who you know.

    Evoke’s New Batteries May Charge In 15 Minutes

    OCT 25 2018 BY RIDEAPART.COM

    Quick charge batteries could change the face of electric motorcycling.


    Chinese electric motorcycle manufacturer Evoke is experimenting with a new battery design that would allow a nearly full recharge in just 15 minutes, a vast improvement over the hours recharging takes currently.

    Evoke’s current batteries charge in 8 hours on 110 volts or 4 hours on 220 volts. The new battery’s capability to charge from a standard Level 2 charger would make on-the-fly charging possible, rather than riding until the battery runs out, then recharging overnight, vastly expanding the bikes’ practicality.

    Evoke’s new battery is not only designed for rapid charging but possible to daisy chain multiple batteries together for larger vehicles that require additional power.

    Not only does Evoke plan to use this fast-charging second-generation battery in upcoming models, it also plans to make them available for other manufacturers to use and take advantage of the quick charge time. This is a similar move to what Kymco and Gogoro propose with hot-swappable batteries to keep electric bikes on the road continuously.

    But while the other brands are focusing on scooters, the daisy-chain capabilities of Evoke’s new batteries open the door to a wider variety of larger vehicles, ranging from motorcycles to rickshaws to small cars.

    15 min top offs is reasonable for traveling away from home. Will be watching this development with interest.
