Regarding maintenance and running cost.
Hi, I've some questions regarding maintenance and running cost for Super Soco CPX.
1. How much it cost to replace the brakes? While replacing brake do I've to replace brake disc too?
2. Is the servicing cost really economic? Importantly, are you really saving money on this scooter than petrol ones's over the long run?
3. How often problem arises with this scooter?
4. Are you getting consistence mileage over the long run?
Thank you for your time.
I've just hit the 4.000km milestone with my SuperSoco CPX, that I bought in September 2020, and I can answer a few of your questions.
My usual daily trip is to take my son at school in the morning and back in the evening. It's about 25km overall (50km a day), with 1/3 of highspeed road (city ring, between 70 and 90km/h), 1/3 city large avenues and 1/3 city small streets. I always use the Mode 3 on the CPX.
I bought a smart plug on Amazon to measure how much electricity I'm consuming while charging the battery.
Here in France, the utility is charging me 0.137€/KWh.
Based on my calculations, it costs me around 0.70€/100km. Of course, this result is for a total weight of 130Kg (my son and I, half of the time), it was during winter, and it would probaby be much better with 25°C and a 70Kg driver.
By curiosity, I compared with the average cost for a 125cm3 thermal moped (consumption 2,5L per 100km and gasoline at 1.5€/L in France), and we obtain 3.75€ / 100km, that is to say more than 5 times more expensive.
And of course, I don't take into account the costs related to the maintenance of the moped which are also higher on a thermal moped. On the CPX, my local Super Soco store bills me 70€ for the maintenance, I had one at 800km and the second one at 3000km.
The brakes were just fine, but I don't know how much it would cost to change them.
So far, I never had an issue with this scooter, it's always working great.
I'm not seeing any mileage reduction, It's rather improving with time, as the temperatures raise, and as a driver I also get better at saving energy.
Hope this can help !
Hi Ruben, interesting feedback! Glad you weren't injured more seriously after your accident, it was a serious shock!
About the connector for car charging poles, can you give me the product reference?
