KYMCO F9, the World’s First Electric Motorcycle Equipped with a Two-speed Automatic Transmission, Is Extremely Fun to Ride

Electric is one of the most significant transformations of modern transportation. From consumers, businesses to governments, more people are embracing electric vehicles to make the cities greener. While numerous electric motorcycles have been launched, however, few have been greeted with great enthusiasm by the market.

The biggest challenge lies in the fact that most electric motorcycles do not excite. The mere electric powertrain as the only differentiation has proven insufficient to significantly advance the green movement. Accordingly, KYMCO F9 is designed to provide the sensational riding experiences that change people’s perceptions on electric motorcycles.

KYMCO F9 is a cool urban electric motorcycle equipped with a 9.4kW motor and designed for street sport ridings. It accelerates from 0 to 50 km/h in 3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 110 km/h. It comes with a 96V 40Ah battery that provides a range of 120 km under the New European Driving Cycle. With fast charging, it takes only 2 hours to fully charge the battery

In addition, F9 features the world’s first two-speed automatic transmission specifically designed for electric motorcycles that improves motor efficiency and power delivery. It also employs a unique chassis design that integrates the battery as part of the frame structure. As a result, F9 has an incredible light weight of 107kg. Combined with the 14-inch wide-tires that offer high cornering grip, F9 is simply an extremely fun-to-ride motorcycle
