VMoto is considered by many to be one of the pioneers in the electric mobility sector. The company, with headquarters in Australia and China, has a wide selection of electric two-wheelers that meet the different needs of passengers and enthusiasts. At EICMA 2023, the company presented one of its most interesting innovations to date, the CPx Explorer.
The so-called “adventure scooter” segment has been growing in recent years, with more and more manufacturers venturing into this space. Honda was one of the first to start this segment with the launch of the X-ADV in 2016 and, in the years since, many manufacturers have followed suit. Now, with the era of electric motorcycles upon us, we’re seeing electric two-wheelers following in the footsteps of their internal combustion predecessors. As such, the new VMoto CPx Explorer is one of the first electric adventure scooters.
Based on the APD concept in collaboration with the renowned Pininfarina design house, the CPx Explorer marks a major leap forward for VMoto. Naturally, the first thing you notice is the bike’s radical style. The scooter is decorated with LED lights, an angular fairing and a high windshield for the rider’s comfort. Even though it’s a scooter, the CPx is not without amenities such as a flat floor and a built-in rear luggage compartment.
As far as performance is concerned, the new VMoto CPx Explorer has an eight-kilowatt electric motor that produces around 11 hp of power. This allows it to reach a top speed of around 65 km/h, making it ideal for city commuting and excursions to the outskirts of town. As for the battery, VMoto claims that it has a range of around 100 km on a single charge.
It’s interesting to see VMoto present a more adventurous platform with the new CPx Explorer. Based on the tried and tested CPx Pro, the Explorer is likely to be just as reliable and robust. After all, the CPx Pro managed to achieve a Guinness World Record, covering 1,932 km over 24 hours on the Tazio Nuvolari circuit in Italy. As for price and availability, VMoto has yet to announce any details about the new scooter.
