Kymco sets to produce its electric bike in 2021

Kymco introduces RevoNEX electric naked bike

As the automotive and motorcycle industry moves towards electrification, Kymco announced that the company will be mass-producing its all-electric motorcycle, the RevoNEX, in 2021.

The Kymco RevoNEX is an all-electric motorbike that celebrates the effortless, easily accessible and all-round performance that has long been the pursuit of street bike riders all over the world. With an entirely new electric architecture, RevoNEX breaks the mold of traditional street bikes and takes KYMCO’s brand philosophy “Win My Heart” to a whole new level.

The electric street bike is equipped with an advanced 6-speed transmission that allows riders to enjoy every minute of their skill-honing endeavors. Riders can make perfect gear shifting to extract the full potential of the motor during highway riding. They can also stick with the right gear in the stop-and-go city traffic without having to worry about the clutch operation or engine stalling.

For better acceleration, the Kymco RevoNEX’s design and calibrated electric motor ensures instant throttle response and continuous power delivery. The fusion of the advanced electric powertrain and the 6-speed transmission further allows riders to make use of the most optimal power band of the motor. The RevoNEX can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds, and from 0 to the top speed of 205 km/h in just 11.8 seconds, while its second gear alone can provide effortless yet monstrous acceleration up to 115 km/h.

Built on “The sound is the voice of the machine” insight, the RevoNEX offers Kymco Active Acoustic Motor (AAM) that enhances the native sound of the motor. Combining the resonating sound of AAM with the mechanical sound of the transmission, the acoustic note of RevoNEX has profound depth and complexity. It conveys the heartbeats of the bike and communicates the load condition of the motor; it gives the rider situation awareness.

With the rpm rising on every up-shift, riders hear the surge of the sound one crescendo after another. Kymco AAM provides street bike riders the fascinating sound that serves as an important media of human-machine connection.
