⏱️ Super Soco wins Guinness World Record for greatest distance on an electric scooter in 24 hours🇨🇳 27 November 2023 by Motorcycle Journalist
Vmoto-Soco (Super Soco) from 🇨🇳 China / 🇦🇺 Australia achieved a Guinness World Record for
the greatest distance on an electric scooter in 24 hours by a team in relay on the Tazio Nuvolari circuit in 🇮🇹 Italy using its latest CPx PRO model.
It is as unbelievable as it is true: last night, Vmoto has officially set a new @guinnessworldrecords for "the Greatest distance on an electric scooter in 24 hours by a team in relay". Riding the CPx PRO, the riders took to the track at @circuitotazionuvolari braving extreme weather conditions, which ranged from freezing rain at night to hot sunshine during the day. ⚡🌱🔋
Vmoto-Soco beat the previous record by 151 km - which was set at 1,780 km. The used CPx PRO scooter was a strictly standard version: an L3 category scooter, equipped with an 8,000 watt engine of maximum power, capable of a maximum speed of 105 km/h and a maximum range of 100 km.
The crew was made up of professional journalists and led by Valerio Boni, journalist, writer and veteran of these endurance challenges. Together with him, Stefano Gaeta, tester and editor of Dueruote, Alberto Cecotti, editor and driving instructor, Begoña Calvo Morillo, editor of Motociclismo Espana and driving instructor, Massimo Roccoli, six-time Italian Supersport Champion, took the handlebars. The technical coordination was led by Claudio Quintarelli, Operation Manager of the Italian Branch of Vmoto with a past as a world-class racing Team Manager. Supporting him were Andrea Gerini, Technical Chief, and Alessandro Colombo, Technical Director of Vmoto 🇮🇹 Italy.
The record attempt took place in absolutely challenging weather conditions. The five pilots found themselves facing a great variety of environmental situations.
The departure took place at 9.00 pm on Thursday 2 November, with the night now well advanced and the asphalt damp. At the dawn of the new day, a very strong storm hit the Tazio Nuvolari Circuit, lowering visibility levels and the temperature, which settled at around 4°. During the morning, the wind cleared the sky of clouds and with the sun peeking out, the track progressively dried out, reaching a perfect ambient temperature of 16° in the central hours of Friday 3 November. The test ended at 9.00 pm on Friday 3 November.
With the extreme weather conditions, the support of the staff of the Tazio Nuvolari Circuit of Cervesina (PV) were essential. Also crucial was the equipment made available by the technical sponsor Alpinestars, which dressed the Vmoto standard bearers with the best items from the Racing catalog to make them safe and protected - even from wind and rain!
The CPx PRO, for its part, proved to be a perfect ally in winning the laurel. In particular, its handling, stability and acceleration qualities were important in maintaining stable and constant performance over 24 hours and 1,931 km, without hesitation. It was a physical and mental endurance test, very difficult for the riders and for the Vmoto Team but also for the CPx PRO - called to a test of resistance to outsized mechanical stress.
Dedication and passion always pay off, especially if supported by a CPx PRO in amazing shape - commented Claudio Quintarelli, Operation Manager Italian Branch of Vmoto - Our scooter was not afraid to overcome the weather conditions of four months in the space of 24 hours several seasons. Not even the flood that hit the Tazio Nuvolari circuit has ever affected my belief that we would have been able to bring home this extraordinary result.
A note from Graziano Milone, President Strategy & Business Development and CMO of Vmoto:
In recent years, the Vmoto group has grown, carving out the role of leader in the electric urban mobility market. This has certainly happened thanks to the design of the products and the strategy marketing, but even more so thanks to the quality of our vehicles. We strongly wanted to undertake this undertaking to clearly underline this point: the starting point for the design and construction of every Vmoto brand vehicle is and always will be reliability This Guinness World Record makes us proud but also tells us that our CPx PRO is an extraordinary machine.
