- Current shipment Feb 2023 has the IEC socket charging plug above the right foot peg.
- Models previous to this have the anderson pug under the seat
The location of the MotoE charging port is now under the passenger seat. Do not attempt to use the old charging location with any cable, even if it fits. This could result in damaging the battery, blowing the battery up or having the battery catch on fire.
DO NOT USE THIS CHARGING PORT
- Charging your MotoE:
The charger for the bike is located under the passenger seat.
- It is an Anderson plug.
- Use the key to unlock the mechanism holding the passenger seat in place, remove the seat and put it elsewhere.
- The Anderson plug will be in the compartment under the seat. The bike charger can be connected to any standard wall socket found at home.
- A red light on the charging box indicates the battery is charging. When the battery is finished charging, the small light on the charging box will turn green.
- It is recommended that you check the amount of charge your bike has before taking it out for its first ride.
- Connect the Anderson plug found under the passenger’s seat with the Anderson plug on the charger.
- Connect the charging box to any classic double power point
Battery Bar and Volt Indicator
The Battery Bar:
The battery bar will show high to low. This will give a general indication of how much charge is left in the battery.
The Volt Indicator:
The volt indicator (reading 83V in the above photo) displays how much volt is registered in the battery. As the battery is being charged, this number will increase. As the bike is being ridden, this number will decrease.
We recommend you become familiar with using this as an accurate way to read how much charge is left in the battery.
Possible Bad Connection on Anderson Charging Plug
Note: Please check from time to time your charging plugs both bike and charger. On the odd occasion the charging connections can back out. Therefore, not making contact at all, and will not charge. If it’s just touching causing a bad connection in this instance it can create heat and melt the plug as per the photo (Please see below). With charger turned off and disconnected from bike, simply use a small screwdriver or similar and push the terminal back in from behind until in locks back in, a click should be heard.
If you find some distortion of the plug due to heat, the plug needs to be changed.
