Evoke Electric Motorcycles of Hong Kong is claiming their Evoke 6061 will have the world’s highest electric motorcycle range of 470km and the fastest charge time at just 15 minutes.
However, their Evoke 6061 “cruiser” isn’t produced yet. It’s still just a drawing and a projection of what it will achieve.
Furthermore, that’s 470km in the city where regenerative braking increases range. Highway range will still be impressive at 265km.
They calculate range riding between 30-50km/h in the city and 140km/h on the highway.

That compares with the Energica Ego and Eva with up 400km (250 miles) of city range, Zero motorcycles with 360km if you use their optional$US2295 Charge Tank and the Damon Hypersport with 320km (200 miles) of “real-world” range.
As for their fastest charging claim, it will take 15 minutes to charge to 80% capacity and only at a CCS-enabled 125kW DC charging station.
Other electric motorcycle manufacturers claim 20-30 minutes using the same DC fast chargers.
The problem is that the more you use quick-charging on a battery the sooner the battery will become useless and need replacement.
Normal charging time from a mains outlet will be about three hours to 100%.
