Super Soco TC Max becomes Nuit

Super Soco TC Max is one of the most interesting and concrete electric motorcycles on the market today: driven by a 3900W electric motor and powered by a 45Ah lithium battery, we liked TC Max a lot thanks to its modern style but which is able to wink at the past, as well as for its excellent ability to extricate itself in the traffic of big cities in a silent and snappy way. You can read our complete test at this link.

Returning to talking about style, Super Soco TC Max has recently been used by a Belgian designer who has given life to a new 'cafe racer' style motorcycle managing to integrate the engine and the battery wisely, despite having reduced the plastics present to the bone.

Nuit is finished completely in black and features simple and clean lines, typical of the cafe racer of the past: the engine, also finished in black and positioned in a familiar point even to those who are familiar with internal combustion motorcycles - the result is a bike that looks familiar at first glance, and which becomes increasingly strange and interesting the longer you look at it.

The Old-School Electric Cafe Racer We’d All Like To Have

In a world where most electric bikes don sporty personas with sharp futuristic designs, here’s a Super Soco TC Max, customised by Belgian designer Benjamin Surain, that showcases a perfect blend of sporty and retro.

Called the Nuit, French for ‘night,’ this custom electric motorcycle dons a minimalistic cafe racer look and gets an all-black treatment. From the headlight nacelle to its bench seat, everything is blacked out with the only exception being the chrome finish of the spoke wheels.

A lot of custom-fabricated parts were required to derive the minimalistic Nuit from the neo-retro TC Max, which include a redesigned frame, seat, faux fuel tank, and even the minimalistic bodywork. The semi-digital instrument console of the Super Soco too has made way for a purposeful LCD display. Completing the list of mods are aftermarket clip-on handlebars that help nail that cafe racer stance.

While the stock TC Max was powered by an electric motor with 5kW of peak power, capable of a top speed of 95kmph, the Nuit claims to be able to extract thirty percent more torque from the motor and bumps up the top speed to 110kmph. The battery however, continues to remain the same 2.7kWh unit with a claimed range of 95km.

The underpinnings comprise fully adjustable suspension at both ends along with steel braided lines for the front and rear disc brakes. The price of the Nuit is unknown, as this is a one-off custom build; however, the Super Soco TC Max is priced at GBP 4,399 (Rs 4.16 lakh) for the alloy variant and GBP 4,499 (Rs 4.25 lakh) for the spoke wheel variant.

This high price tag would make this bike unviable for the Indian market, as Super Soco did have plans of getting their e-scooters to our shores. However, if you're looking for Indian electric cafe racers, you can check out the Atumobile AtumVader.
