When I saw the first images of Super 73’s c1X electric motorcycle, I immediately pictured one mounted to the hitch of my truck. Between rising fuel costs and the warmer weather of summer approaching, an electric moto feels like it could perfectly complement an overland rig, providing a fun, fuel-efficient, and practical way to get around urban environments that you encounter during your travels.
But let’s be real. The appeal of the C1X is about much more than practicality: this is a stunning little piece of machinery. From its retro graphics and manageable size to its battery-powered propulsion system. This newest offering from Super 73 is much more than an electric bicycle.
