Are you a biker?
make yourself MOTECO
All electric motorcycles, like cars, can be charged from home.
That is why all motorcycles include the necessary connectors, cables and plugs.
Despite being a very functional process, it is true that a homemade installation has some limitation in loading times.
However, it is a process that can be improved either by increasing the contracted power and/or by using more powerful chargers.
At Moteco we can always advise you on what the best solution is.
The Kilowatt/hour can have an estimated price of 12 cents during night hours and 18 cents during normal hours.
To fill the battery of the largest motorcycle that we have (17 kWh) the cost is between €2,04 and €3,6. Nothing to do with filling a conventional gas tank, right?
Yes, in fact there are multiple applications in which we can check the different charging points available.
In addition, they inform you about the power they supply and even about the type of connectivity.

The most common electric motorcycle batteries are usually lithium-ion.
Its behavior is much more stable than other types of batteries in terms of the famous "memory effect" that reduces its useful life (full charge cycles).
For this reason, batteries can be repeatedly charged multiple times. Although this is a field that is in constant development and great advances are expected in the short term.
What is the durability of the batteries?
About 500 complete cycles for lead batteries.
And between 1.000 and 2.000 complete cycles for lithium-ion batteries.
The unit of measure for battery capacity is the kWh.
The equivalence in a combustion engine would be the unit of liters of the fuel tank.
The Watt, also known as the Watt, is the standard unit of power calculation.
It is the result of multiplying Volts x Amps.
Normally the standard unit of measurement is 1000 Watts = Kilowatt.
Yes, as in any vehicle, a new motorcycle has to pass the ITV once it is 4 years old and then every 2 years.
In the case of a moped, you must pass the ITV once they are 2 years old and pass it again every 2 years.
The normal charging process of an electric motorcycle, and in general of any electric vehicle, is very simple.
It is enough to connect the charger to a stable 220v (single-phase) outlet that we have available at home, the garage or in shopping centers or charging equipment installed on the streets.
Full charge will take a few hours depending on the capacity of the charger and other aspects of the charging system.
There are 5 types of charging points:
Mode 1 or standard: capable of providing up to 3,6 kw
Mode 2 or fast standard: capable of providing between 3,7 kW and 7,2 kW
Mode 3 or semi-fast: capable of providing between 7,5 kW and 21 kW
Mode 4 or fast: capable of providing between 22 kW and 50 kW
Mode 5 or ultra fast: capable of providing between 51 kW or more.
There are different types of connectors. The difference is in the charging mode and they are divided as follows:
Type 1: the so-called J1772 is the most common. It allows us to do a slow charge of up to 3,6 kW and is the most used in countries like Japan. In Europe the most widely used are the schuko sockets that have the same technical specifications as the J1772.
Type 2: the best known is the Mennekes brand.
Type 3: allows loads of up to 22 kW.
Type 4: allows fast charging, currently up to 50 kW. They are becoming more widespread and implemented in our current network of charging points.
Here you can get better information and, in case of doubt, at Moteco we can advise you:
We are used to measuring the power of combustion engines in Horsepower (CV), but the power in electric motors will be measured in Kw.
The equivalence is as follows: 1kw = 1,34cv
It is the standard measure of battery charge capacity and is measured in kilowatt hours.
The load capacity of our motorcycles ranges from 5 Kw/h for a scooter to 12 Kw/h for our supersports.
It is the standard measure of electrical current intensity.
Yes, they are exempt from registration tax.
And as far as the circulation tax is concerned, it depends on each city council. Currently in Palma de Mallorca there is a discount of 75%.
