KYMCO RevoNEX — the Next Revolution?

  • The KYMCO RevoNEX was revealed at EICMA 2019.

  • It’s a high-performance electric motorcycle.

  • Features include a six-speed gearbox and traction control.

The KYMCO RevoNEX revealed at EICMA 2019 shows that scooter maker is stepping to the plate to bat.

Primarily a scooter maker, the company surprised everyone with the RevoNEX, a high-powered electric bike with some pretty high specifications.

Mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the electric motor pushes the bike from 0 -100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. It then continues to accelerate from 100 km/h to 200 km/h in 8.7 seconds.

But get this, it’s also fitted with launch control plus traction control.

KYMCO did not share more technical details, specially about the bike’s battery pack and motor. However, look closer at the photos and you will spot Öhlins suspension from and rear, plus radially-mounted Brembo monobloc brake calipers up front.

If the RevoNEX has better performance, it will then be a real challenger to other electric motorcycle brands like Zero and Lightning.

The manufacturer says the RevoNEX should be available from 2021.

While many of us are used to knowing KYMCO as a scooter maker, they have been building BMW Motorrad engines for many years now. Engines for the F 800-series now F 850-series and next year’s F 900-series besides the C 400 and C 650 engines are produced by them.
