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.

Hi Kenji,

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 !

Hey Kenji
 
I can also add some extra information. I reached 10000 km recently with my CPx and had to replace the steering head bearing ones at around 5000 km and at 10000 km again. This was not expensive, Around 150 euros, this included cleaning of the brakes. At 10000 km the front brake pads had to be replaced. This is a bit more than average for a scooter. 
 
The battery didn't empty faster after 10000 km and reach remained the same. 
 
If I drove 45km a hour I reached 90 km. And I weight 130 kg. 
 
I bought a connector for charging at car charging poles. You can get them on amazon for around 110 euros. And a full charge at the car charge was around 1,20 euro. An hour charging for about 40 percent extra battery is around 30 cents. 
 
I recently had a accident were I was hit by a car in the side of the Super Soco CPx and it protected me a lot. It was a impact from the side with 80km/hour into the left side. The CPx was not even badly damaged afterwards. Damage around 1700 euros. I bought a new one in stead of fixing this one and have to rehabilitate from a broken shoulder and a foot injury. 
 
I would recommend the CPx to everyone. 
 
Hope this will help you with your choice

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?
