Super73 is best known in the e-bike space, which exists somewhere between traditional pedaled bicycles and full-on motorbikes. On March 15, 2022, Super73 introduced its new C1X electric concept–which is the Southern California e-bike specialist’s first crack at a proper motorcycle. To reiterate, it is still only a concept at this stage, so we only have a selection of details (and a lot of photos) to peruse. With that in mind, let’s dive right in.

Super73’s C1X was developed in response to something that Super73 says its customers have been requesting for some time. While e-bikes are great at what they do, they obviously have limitations. You don’t need a special license for them, it’s true—but you also can’t go as fast or as far as you could if you had a full-on motorbike of some kind.

The C1X concept features “a targeted top speed in excess of 75 mph.” That means riders will need a motorcycle endorsement on their licenses in order to ride one—but the benefits seem pretty clear. Since it’s a concept, Super73 hasn’t released specific details about the powertrain or battery situation, other than giving us an idea of where it’s placed as we look at photos.
