The Domestic High-end E-vehicle E5 Test Ride Review
The main character today is the ECOOTER E5, which comes from DAYANG which has been famous for traditional fuel motorcycle for many years. It is the current flagship model and one of the most high-end mass-produced electric scooters in China at present.
E5’s body line is simple, with the tone of the future technology style. Its unique appearance is quite impressive.
E5 is equipped with keyless startup system, exclusive mobile APP, 6.8-inch IPS screen, tire pressure monitoring, all LED lights, aluminum alloy rear flat fork and standard dual-channel ABS, etc., almost the premium one compared with the same level models.
Double lithium battery parallel system has battery capacity up to 5.4kWh. Using safe fast charging technology, battery can charge to 95% in only 2 hours. The battery can also be taken out to charge. The cruising range of the high-performance version can be up to 200km.
Under the cooperation of the fifth-generation central mounted motor and gear + belt/chain two-stage transmission system, the on-wheel torque exceeds 260N·m. The 0-50km/h acceleration only needs 3.5s, and the 0-80km/h acceleration time is 9.7s, and the top speed is over 103km/h.
Different from the common electric scooter, the two batteries of E5 are placed in the middle of the body, which has the advantage of more concentrated center of gravity, more reasonable front and rear counterweight, and more obvious improvement to the control. And the space under seat shows its practicality.
The tire size is 110/80-14 in the front and 130/70-13 in the rear. Large widened tire is one of the most unique points of E5.
E5 is an international model with 820mm seat height. It is relatively high, but the flat and wide seat has more riding space, which makes riders feel more comfortable.
The first impression of riding is that the power output is relatively stable. When the power output is continuously increased, the sense of direct and rapid acceleration is obvious, with almost no delay and no setback.
The stability and grip provided by the wide tires are another highlight of E5, especially on medium to high speeds, uneven roads and curves. The large tires provide more security and are fully sufficient to meet the needs of daily and highly motivated commuting. It is obvious that the E5 is more of a high-spec motorbike with a fun-oriented nature.
Restricted by the test-driving site, the maximum speed is only 89km/h(shown). The acceleration performance in the front segment is obviously more intense, and the overall driving is quite good.
As a traditional motorcycle enterprise for years, DAYANG is capable to practice innovation on E5. From the appearance and shape to body configuration and design of key components, they show a breakthrough different from the mainstream electric scooters. In the field of electric scooter and fuel scooter which are more and more homogenized nowadays, E5 is still promising and worth studying.
