BICOSE REAL 5T
As a high-end electric motorcycle brand owned by Loncin, BICOSE is positioned as a “technology-driven entertainment electric motorcycle brand”, focusing on the R&D and sales of high-end electric motorcycles.
BICOSE launched its first product, the Real 5T, in July this year. Real 5T inherits the design concept of Windynamic Style (Wind Rider aesthetics), aiming to “naturally go with the wind”. The good-looking body of Real 5T is sketched with flowing lines and curved surfaces. The levitating smart design creates a concise, powerful, scientific and aesthetic future melody.
The Real 5T is equipped with a mid-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motor with a peak power of 12.0kW, wheel torque of 389N·m, 0-50km/h acceleration time of 2.6s and 0-80km/h acceleration time of 6.5s. The maximum speed is 115km/h, and the steady-state maximum speed is 105km/h. The total battery capacity is 89V54Ah, the NEDC under working condition is 150km, and the maximum range is up to 240km. The Real 5T comes in Ultra, PRO, and Standard versions. The most important differences with the Ultra are the 1.84 kilowatt quick charge port for direct charging from car charging piles, a quick charge gun that plugs into a household electric outlet, an automatic folding touch TFT meter, tire pressure monitoring, phone charging, front recorder, and built-in audio. The Standard version doesn’t have those configurations, and the Pro version lacks the TFT meter’s auto-folding, tire pressure monitoring, mobile phone charging, and mobile phone left-behind alert functions.
