How to recognize new model
Just to say I finally got the bike! It's a 1100km used, spoke wheels, picked up at a dealer and looking brand new. For 3400€ euro, a great price! Brand new retails here in Spain for about 4500€ minus 750€ govt rebate.
It does have the lighter orange battery cables and no switches next to the battery like other (older?) models. It also has the SIM card, the Android app works perfectly, with GPS location reporting, diagnostics, historical trip record and notifications if someone moves the bike when parked (!). So I'd say it's most definitely the newer model, or at least the newest you can get here in Spain.
Yesterday I got the speedometer to 100km/h on a flat motorway without any effort (I'm 1.80m, 91kg - 14.5 stone). The engine is amazing, even when uphill, and it has surpassed all my expectations. It's definitely the most perfect commuter bike ever made 😄 in my humble opinion that is.
Very useful info (mobile connectivity, hope of issue correction and 100km/h fun). Another difference seems to be the new handlebar shape (halfway back to the TC - slight angle and a coupe of cm higher) which is a relief as on a test ride I found the Max straight bar was too low for me.
Might be worth me splashing out on a new one, rather than a 2nd hand 2019 Max.... I would love to hear any more differences. Am hoping to decide soon. Anyone ridden both yet?
P.S. I really hope they have ironed out the many problems I had with my TC. I have had it a year and have spend more time off road than on it. Disappointing. I am on my 3rd plug as 2 previous ones melted on. Fat one now seems totally fine. Issue with kills switch currently and lockdown meant 4 months without a bike. Pants.
Onward - ever hopeful, excited and oddly still loving Supersoco!
