CFMoto has revealed plans for its new motorcycle EV sub-brand, Zeeho, with the unveiling of its Cyber electric scooter concept that is expected to hit Australian showrooms in production form by 2022.
The Zeeho brand was first previewed last month when CFMoto showed its all-electric 300GT-E motorcycle.
Powering the Zeeho Cyber concept is a mid-mounted electric motor generating 21Nm, allowing the scooter to sprint from zero-to-50km/h in a claimed 2.9 seconds, for a top speed of 110km/h.
With a 4kWh lithium-ion battery, the Cyber provides a 130 kilometre pure electric riding range on a single charge, and can be recharged to 80 per cent in 30 minutes when connected to a fast-charging system.
A Bosch rider aid system can be tailored with three rider modes, Eco, Street and Sport, while a six-camera setup provides 360-degree obstacle warnings.
Other technical highlights include Brembo brakes with ABS, adjustable ‘high-performance’ suspension and Pirelli Diablo tyres paired with aggressive alloy wheels.
As a future-focussed model, the Zeeho Cyber is equipped with a number of tech features like keyless start and mobile unlock, voice commands, live vehicle tracking and smartphone mirroring.
“As electric bikes begin to spark motorcycling’s main grid, the time has come for CFMoto to plug in and launch its highly-anticipated EV sub-brand,” said CFMoto Australia director Michael Poynton in a press release.
“Distinct design, tech and environmental consciousness underpin Zeeho. For the Gen-Z riders of the world’s megacities, these represent the core fundamentals of urban mobility and similarly embody the guiding principles of Zeeho. It’s going to be an electrifying ride.”
As INFO MOTO has previously reported, CFMoto is in the process of expansion, entering new motorcycle segments and significantly upgrading its production capabilities, thanks in part to its solidified partnership with KTM.
Future models will be built in a new 150,000 square-metre facility in Hangzhou, China, which the brand says is capable of producing 50,000 large capacity motorcycles per year.
