Gogoro, Taiwan's leading electric motorcycle manufacturer, has officially unveiled its new Gogoro 2 2020 model, which boasts a faster speed, smarter functions, and more practicality than the existing models.
The new model will be equipped with a smart key card, dubbed “iQ system,” which will be capable of unlocking the motorcycle by a gentle touch. Thanks to the adjustment of the engine, the time from the starting of the engine to the speed of 50 kilometers/hour will be shortened by approximately 0.1 seconds from the existing model. In view of the favorable customer response, a small compartment for the storing of smartphones, gloves, and other items will be available on the new model, along with an additional USB socket for charging mobile phones. The specially designed small compartment can also double as a beverage bottle holder. The motorcycle itself will be powered by a new kind of battery, which can boost its cruising range to 170 kilometers.
The new Gogoro 2 2020 model is expected to galvanize the sales of Gogoro’s entire electrical motorcycle line even further. As of now, the company’s accumulated sales have already topped 200,000 units, with the total number of new license plates exceeding 11,000 monthly in the recent three months. In the sector of the medium- and high-tier 125 cc electric motorcycles, Gogoro 2 now boasts 27% market share.
