A glimpse of the future? Just out of curiosity on Friday last I swapped my BMW S1000XR (just for an hour) to try out the twist and go battery powered Super Soco courtesy of Shiregreen Service Station (SSS). With increasing emphasis on the move to electrically powered vehicles SSS have a couple of these in stock and are positioning them as an alternative to a petrol engined 50cc bike or scooter. With a top (restricted) speed of 30 mph and a fully charged range of 40 miles it’s clearly a commuter bike so I took it into town to try it out. I was impressed by its lightness and manoeuvrability - filtering was a piece of cake and accelerating away from traffic lights was sufficiently brisk to keep out of the way of the rest of the traffic. In fact it gets up to 30 mph pretty quickly from a standstill, freewheels down hills (saving battery power) and maintains good progress up hills maybe losing a couple of miles an hour in the process (although I am quite lightweight). It helps that in Sheffield bikes also qualify to use many of the bus lanes. Brakes are good and, with the drive mechanism incorporated into the rear wheel, there is no chain or belt to maintain. Keyless operation and a built in alarm/immobiliser gives added security. Whilst I’m not advocating this is a bike for advanced motorcyclists, a government grant of ���£587 towards the purchase cost (making it ��£2,349 to the customer) and minimal running costs at around ���£1 per 100 miles (with no road tax) makes it an option for new riders (or existing car drivers) looking for a cheap form of commuter transport. Anybody who wants to know more should go to or call SSS on 0114 240 1100
