CINECO E-CLASSIC TEST RIDE REVIEW
Cineco E-CLASSIC is not a traditional commuting electric motorcycle. The original electric retro curved body with classic and delicate appearance demonstrates a literary and neoclassical style of travel.
E-CLASSIC is targeted for urban white collars or those who love retro products. More importantly, its role has been transformed from an electric motorcycle into a way of life, which is a breakthrough and will lead a trend in the electric two-wheeler industry.
E-CLASSIC is not a best commuting vehicle, but a competent stylish retro electric motorcycle with satisfying power and cruising capability.
The motorcycle tested was a high-configuration version, with a 60V26Ah lithium battery. The officially claimed cruising capability is 108km. Since cruising is largely related to personal riding habits, temperature, road conditions, and other practical factors, the daily riding cannot reach the distance of declared working condition.
During the road test, E-CLASSIC was ridden for acceleration and deceleration, gradeability tests to assess its comprehensive cruising performance. The final result was gratifying.
The odometer read 25km before the riding. The battery was fully charged. The temperature was only a few degrees above zero.
E-CLASSIC’s top speed—53km/h on the meter—well meet all kinds of daily commuting needs.
The test scenario was the daily urban commuting conditions, with uphill streets and congested roads. The whole test lasted through the afternoon.
When the odometer showed 68km (actual distance of riding: 43km), there was a low-power alarm, and the speed was affected, but it could still run at about 20km/h (meter reading). We decided to keep riding until the power ran out.
The test route was basically following the daily commuting road walk, and it was operated as casual as the rider felt. The total distance covered was 52 km.
The version with high configuration performed well during the test, with an acceptable cruising distance, though not a pure commuting vehicle. In addition, E-CLASSIC can handle all urban road slopes. Another advantage of electric motorcycle is that they won’t stall half way on a slope, which is more convenient for female users.
The front and rear 16-inch steel-wire spoke wheels have a reliable passability that overmatches the vast majority of electric motorcycles on the market. E-CLASSIC can easily pass road obstacles. The big wheels add to the riding quality and good stability. The light body and flexible steering make the riding easy and pleasant.
E-CLASSIC’s exterior modelling highlights the unique retro curved beam and the style of new classicism.
Cineco is backed by the strong technology strength of Zongshen Group. It adopts a mature motorcycle supporting system, and the technologies of lithium battery and electric motor being tested on the track are mature.
The cruising ability, speed, gradeability and passability are all good for daily use.
From the perspective of modeling, brand, and performance, E-CLASSIC’s comprehensive evaluation is satisfying. If you want to have a high cost – effective electric motorcycle, Cineco E-CLASSIC is recommendable. （Source: www.dmotor.cn）
