Test Ride Sway in 2016
Who can ride Sway?
Sway is a comfortable fit and easy ride for anyone, woman or man, who can ride a standard-sized motor scooter. An early prototype was tested in a parking lot by founder Joe Wilcox’s mother–who is 5’2” and was 60 at the time!
How is Sway different from other three-wheeled motorcycles?
On a Sway, riders have direct control of vehicle tilt with their legs, through the patented linkage design. This makes riding a Sway a completely different experience from riding a motorcycle or, say, a Piaggio MP3. Sway can turn more tightly, and riders don’t have to balance the vehicle or put their feet down at a stop.
All this along with Sway’s slightly wider footprint means that Sway is also more stable in low-traction conditions such as loos gravel, mud or ice.
Does Sway have front and rear turn indicators, and brake lights?
Yes! Sway will have all lighting needed to be fully street-legal throughout the U.S. and EU
What kind of license do I need to ride one?
In California you can ride Sway with just a driver’s license! Since license requirements will vary by municipality, we recommend checking your state laws regarding three-wheeled electric motorcycles before reserving your Sway.
How many cc’s is Sway’s engine?
We’re electric, so the motor is not measured in cc’s. The power of electric motors is measured in watts (W). Sway Lithium has a 6 kilowatt (kW) motor, which puts out roughly 8hp of torque. It’s around the power of a 125cc gas engine, and means Sway Lithium is categorized as a Motorcycle.
How does the charging work? Does it come with a charging station? Does it work with existing car chargers in parking lots? How do you set up a charger at home?
The Sway charger works with both 110v and 240v. Sway will come standard with a 110v wall outlet plug, and there will be an upgrade option for the J1772 car charger plug that will work at standard EV charging stations. A home charging unit for charging the J1772 is available, and requires 240v current.
How long does a charge last?
Much like a gas engine, this will depend on how you drive. If you are accelerating hard the whole time or going up steep hills, you will get fewer miles per charge. At 30 mph, the average charge lasts for 40 miles for Sway Lithium, and 60 miles for Sway Lithium Plus.
Will Sway be available in Canada/Europe/Asia?
We are making Sway street legal for Europe, North America and Asia. It will be distributed in the U.S. initially, but we plan to expand to other markets.
When will Sway be available to test drive?
Watch for the Sway Pilot Fleet in California in the summer of 2016 – We’ll start offering test rides on these pre-production units by the end of July. If you are elsewhere in the US, we aim to get you a ride in the fall.
I’m a dealer and I’d love to distribute Sway.
