The KYMCO RevoNEX Electric Motorcycle at EICMA 2019
The KYMCO RevoNEX Electric Motorcycle
A Revolutionary High Performance Street Bike Set to Be Available in 2021.
MILAN, ITALY – November 5, 2019 – At EICMA 2019 KYMCO announces the launch of KYMCO RevoNEX, a high performance street bike that redefines the category.
RevoNEX is an all-electric motorbike, yet it is not just about electric. KYMCO RevoNEX celebrates the effortless, easily accessible and all-round performance that has long been the pursuit of street bike riders all over the world. With an entirely new electric architecture, RevoNEX breaks the mold of traditional street bikes and takes KYMCO’s brand philosophy “Win My Heart” to a whole new level.
“The key point of distinction is that we set out to build an exceptional performance street bike on an advanced electric platform, instead of an electric street bike that has exceptional performance. We have always strived to apply the latest electric technology toward building the ideal motorbike previously unattainable,” said Allen Ko, KYMCO Chairman. “RevoNEX is set to be available in 2021.”
Last year at EICMA 2018 KYMCO introduced the revolutionary supersport motorcycle SuperNEX. This year KYMCO again pushes the envelope for electric motorcycles by setting a new benchmark for the next era of high performance street bikes. RevoNEX inherits the design architecture of SuperNEX and comes to life in five tangible distinctions: Gears, Performance, Control, Sound, and Modes.
Gears – Six Speed Transmission
RevoNEX was developed on the philosophy that shifting is the art of motorbike riding. Hence, the electric street bike is equipped with an advanced 6-speed transmission that allows riders to enjoy every minute of their skill-honing endeavors. Riders can make perfect gear shifting to extract the full potential of the motor during highway riding. They can also stick with the right gear in the stop-and-go city traffic without having to worry about clutch operation or engine stalling. Every day, they are driven by the improvement of their own skills and the pursuit of enjoyment in each journey. With the gears, RevoNEX provides the human-machine interaction that all street bike riders aspire.
Performance – KYMCO EFA
KYMCO EFA, Electric Full-range Acceleration, was engineered around the aspiration that the best acceleration feels like a completion of a thought. The expertly designed and calibrated electric motor ensures instant throttle response and continuous power delivery. The fusion of the advanced electric powertrain and the 6-speed transmission further allows riders to make use of the most optimal power band of the motor. RevoNEX can go from 0 to 100 km/hr in 3.9 seconds, and from 0 to the top speed of 205 km/hr in just 11.8 seconds. In the city when gear shifting is not desired, RevoNEX’s second gear alone can provide effortless yet monstrous acceleration up to 115 km/hr. KYMCO EFA allows street bike riders to enjoy the astonishing performance of the vehicle on every occasion.
Control – KYMCO FEP
Excitement comes from exploring limits with confidence. To deliver on this assurance, KYMCO created KYMCO FEP, Full Engagement Performance. FEP is an advanced performance management system that allows the street bike riders to confidently enjoy the full potential of the vehicle. With FEP, riders can repetitively perform a perfect launch at every green light. When riding through uneven pavements or water potholes commonly found on busy city streets, FEP ensures there is no wheel slippage. During sudden braking in unexpected traffic, FEP provides maximum traction and prevents rear wheel lifting. KYMCO FEP empowers street bike riders of all skill levels to safely enjoy the full potential of RevoNEX.
Sound – KYMCO AAM
The sound is the voice of the machine. Built on this insight, RevoNEX offers KYMCO AAM, Active Acoustic Motor. The motor is designed with a multi-frequency acoustics generator that enhances the native sound of the motor. Combining the resonating sound of AAM with the mechanical sound of the transmission, the acoustic note of RevoNEX has profound depth and complexity. It conveys the heartbeats of the bike and communicates the load condition of the motor; it gives the rider situation awareness. With the rpm rising on every up-shift, riders hear the surge of the sound one crescendo after another. KYMCO AAM provides street bike riders the fascinating sound that serves as an important media of human-machine connection.
Modes – KYMCO AMP
A great vehicle elevates the rider’s every occasion. In particular, street bike riders often use their vehicles for different purposes on different occasions. To duly complement the rider’s moods in every journey, RevoNEX offers KYMCO AMP, Adaptive Machine Personality. It supports four distinct vehicle personalities: (1) Poised, which allows the riders to glide through the neighborhood quietly; (2) Assertive, which displays the rider’s inner strength with power and civility; (3) Bold, which gives riders immense might for occasional spirited riding; (4) Extreme, which screams out the passion hidden within the rider’s heart. KYMCO AMP offers street bike riders many ways to enjoy their RevoNEX in every context of their lives.
“A next-generation high performance street bike, KYMCO RevoNEX is one step closer to the ideal motorbike all modern street bike riders dream of,” said Allen Ko, KYMCO Chairman. “We have combined over two decades’ worth of electric vehicle making expertise and the most forward-thinking design philosophy to redefine what riders can expect from the next era of high performance street bikes.”
