Greetings to respected Forum! 

I'm a potential TC buyer/owner from Croatia. Since I'm unexperienced moto driver, but have a grat unfulfilled wish to become one, I think that TC is an excellent choice for me.

I had a plan to buy 125cc cruiser or something similar, since cruiser/choppers are something I'm really into...but I also consider it my responsibility to promote a "healthy" and environmentally friendly approach...aaaand I don't have the will to take a course and take an exam in a driving school, at least not at my age (41), for 125cc (or more) driving license.

I plan to use it for everyday commute to work and home (cca 25km), but also for every day stuff...even for a relaxing cruise with my wife, to shoreline, to the beach and similar. The problem is that we live in quite a hilly terrain, with max. 17% uphill stretch. I'm 183cm tall and cca 82kg...yes, I know, the almost perfect example 😉 

I know the TCmax is more powerful, but I'll then have to make a driver's license for 125cc category (or higher) and then maybe I'll want to buy fossile fuel motorcycle and so on and on...TC caught my eye, and, what is more important, I have my wife's approval!

So, please, can you write me your experiences. I'm concerned about the speed, with my body configuration. I'm not so concerned about the range, but I wouldn't like to be the snail (and menace) on the road...for example, the stretch of road cca 3km long, with cca 7%  of continuous ascent...and similar examples...

I hope you understand exactly what I'm aiming for and I know that this Forum is the right place to ask this kind of questions.

I hope I'll soon become the part of this Forum (and TC owner)...as soon as this global situation ends...

Thanks and regards! Stay safe!

Same for me... 22 years of driving experience on 4 wheels, never considered to take the driving licence for motorcycles (dangerous, lazy to re-learn etc)

Long story short:

- you and your wife on a TC - only if you have 65kg and she's 45kg. As I wrote in another post, this bike is built for chinese, not for heavy and tall european guys.

- 3km with 7% - you'll barely maintain a 35km/h max speed. So either you have 2 lanes on that road, either expect a long queue behind. 

 

But if above are not really impediments, the bike is great and cheap compared with others (ie Zero).

I use mainly in the city, with many hills, many up and downs. Just after I leave my home, i have a road with I think 15% or 20%, and it runs fine with 10km/h.. the engine is powerful enough at low speeds. For long ascends the speed suffers a lot, i barely reach a 35km/h just myself (90kg) but I don't care too much if I make a queue behind.

@alexaraducristian Thanks for the info! 

One question; those speeds You mentioned...are they in restricted mode or in de-restricted mode?

Regards!

@the_brx restricted.

Indeed you can drestrict it and get higher speeds, but this will drain your battery much faster.
