Hello riders,

 

After 5500 km driving without any issues on the CPx I was wondering if there are options to set the maximum speed from 45 km/h to 90 km/h. Since they are limited in the Netherlands. I know that they changed the derestrict option that the TC had. But still I think this would be possible. Maybe with a controller from germany or outside eu?

 

Greetings Ruben

Hi Ruben,

Do you mean the speed of your CPx is limited to 45km/h in the Netherlands ?? 😮

@lazybear Hey Stéphane,

 

Yes it is limited to 45km/h. While the rest of traffic drive 50 km/h and that is quite anoying sometimes and even dangerous.

 My TC had a maximum speed of 70km/h, but this was changed because of law restrictions.

But I don't understand... This law applies to all motorbikes ? If not, why the CPX would be submitted to such restrictions ? And I guess the 50km/h limit is only inside the city, it's probably much faster on highways, right ?

@lazybear The Cpx is sold only as a moped in the Netherlands, so with a restrictiction on top speed of 45km/h. Very strict. So I am being overtaken by almost everyone, since no one actually drives 45km/h because of the dangers that it can bring, and can be annoying.  With the other super socos there was a unrestricted option, that they removed with the newest super socos in the Netherlands. The price is still the same as for the CPx that has a maximum speed of 90 km/h. Only that is not for sale in the Netherlands. I am 38 years old and capable of driving safely. So I am wondering if there is a way to undo the software modification ( maybe a new controller that is unrestricted from outside the countries were they are restricted.)

I see... here in France the speed limit depends on the engine max displacement, and the driving licence level of the driver. All motorcycles under 50cm3 are limited to 45km/h, but can be driven by 14y/o drivers with a very basic licence. The motorcycles up to 125cm3 can be driven with a specific motorbike licence or a car licence + special 2 wheels training day starting at 18y/o with no speed limit. Motorbikes over 125cm3 require the specific motorbike licence.

The CPx enters into the 125cm3 category (it's electric, but it's an equivalency), so it's possible to drive it up to 90km/h, provided that you have the adequate age and licences.

The CuX enters in the 50cm3 category and thus is limited to 45km/h.

I know that it's (it was) possible to remove the speed restriction on the CuX, but I don't know about the CPX.

I must say that I do not have a driverslicence A1, but B (car) and drive about 20000km a year on a moped. I know it is not lawfull to unrestrict, since I have a chronic illness it is not easy to apply for A1 driverslicense because of medical test. I have smallfiber neuropathy and driving takes away the pain. 

My car can go 230 km/h and with that I can also keep within the limit of 130 km/h on the highway. So with the bike also. And then I mean around 50/ 55 km/h.

That is why I would like to change the max speed. Thanks anyway

Ik heb er ook naar gezocht om de nederlandse cpx onbegrensd te kunnen maken.

mijn dealer weet het ook niet.

het gaat in ieder geval niet zo als met de TS en de TC.

Misschien Debo Scooters in Aalsmeer. Die gaf aan daar mee bezig te zijn. Vragen naar Noud. Ik wacht het einde van mijn garantieperiode even af. Mvrgr Richard.
