With EICMA and Motorcycle Live out of the way, we can definitely say there are plenty more manufacturers jumping ship and producing their own line-up of electric motorcycles and mopeds.

With new electric moped and motorcycle offerings from Lambretta, Royal Enfield and Kawasaki all getting us excited, in this blog, we will be running down 10 of the best electric mopeds for 2024.

Before we get started however, it is worth noting that these are Electric Mopeds we are looking at today, so equivalent to 50cc machines, if you are looking for a bigger check out our electric scooter equivalent to 125s article.

So let’s get started, shall we?

10. Keeway Blueshark 45

Kicking off and sitting at tenth today we have the Keeway Blueshark 45…

Coming equipped with a permanent magnet gear motor and dual LFP batteries, the Blueshark has a range of 100 miles from a full battery, making it a perfect option for those looking to commute through the urban jungle.

However, the range isn’t the only impressive feature of the Blueshark. This scoot comes packed with some pretty impressive spec including a large 10-inch, full colour display with 4G navigation, 74 smart sensors around the bike's body, and smartphone connectivity.

If you’re thinking about getting yourself a Blueshark for 2024, you will look at paying £2,499 which is fairly standard for a moped with this much tech and spec strapped to it!


  • High quality tech and spec
  • Impressive range


  • Styling won't be for everyone

9. Horwin EK1

Next up and in at ninth we have the Horwin EK1.

This nifty little offering from Horwin comes equipped with a 26Ah, removable Lithium-Ion battery which can deliver up to 45 miles of range as standard. On the other hand, if you are someone who wants the extra miles (perhaps for delivery riding) you can purchase the extended 40Ah option that will give you an average of 60 miles per full charge.

In terms of spec, you’ll find the EK1 comes packed with a smart LCD dash display, USB charging, a removable battery, and full LED lighting with a “follow me home” function, providing both convenience and safety, especially when riding at night.

Overall, the EK1 is a fun and modern city commuter that leads the way with its unique functions such as one-button reverse, cruise control, and directional headlights all for a reasonable price tag sitting just under the £3,000 mark.


  • Good charging time
  • Option for a bigger battery and longer range


  • Glovebox isn’t lockable

8. Yadea G5

Taking the eighth spot on our list today is a returner from our 2023 list, the Yadea G5!

The Yadea G5 was created as a result of a partnership between Yadea and Lexmoto who aimed to produce a scooter with great technology and potential to change the way we travel in the urban jungle.

When it comes to powering the G5, this scoot packs a respectable 2.3kW motor and a removable Panasonic lithium-ion battery providing you with a range of 55 miles from a full charge.

Lastly, in terms of spec and styling, the G5 is quite simple and basic, however, this isn’t much of a surprise with its £2629 price tag. So if you are someone who just needs a bike to get from A to B, then the G5 would definitely be a scooter to consider…


  • Has removable batteries
  • Cheap, ideal for a lot of people's budgets


  • Spec is quite basic
  • Range could be a bit better

7. Vespa Elettrica

Moving onto our seventh spot scoot on the list today - the Vespa Elettrica (L1).

The Elettrica has been built with nipping through town and small streets in mind, coming packed with a 3.5kW electric motor giving off a maximum of 4kW of energy and a 30 mph top speed.

When it comes to tech, this Vespa comes equipped with a 4.3” TFT screen, three power modes (‘Eco’, ‘Power’, and ‘Reverse’), smartphone connectivity, and LED lighting.

Ultimately there is no denying that the Vespa Elettrica is a very premium offering coming with a price tag of £6,500, meaning that not everyone is going to have that sort of budget available. However, Vespas are iconic and I'm sure there are many people out there who want to get their taste of Vespa’s first full electric scooter.

We here at BikeMatters have actually reviewed the Vespa Elettrica, so if you like what you see it is worth heading over and checking out our full road test review!


  • It’s a Vespa!
  • Incredible stylish
  • Premium offering


  • On the heavier side
  • Quite expensive, not for those with a smaller budget

6. Honda EM1e

Swiftly moving onto number six and we have the Honda EM1e - a prominent feature from another top 10 scooters article!

First announced in EICMA back in 2022, the Honda EM1e was introduced as part of Honda's mission to release ten electric motorcycles and mopeds by 2025. The EM1e also sports a never-before-seen Honda Power Pack E. The Honda EM1e also produces 2.3hp, which makes this scoot an interesting competitor for other models on this list.

Onto spec, and the Em1e comes equipped with the typical standard amount of electric scooter tech including LED lighting, LCD display, and Combined braking system - all wrapped in a £4,999 package!


  • Exciting new Mobile Power Pack
  • Reliable brand


  • Basic spec for a high price point
  • Limited range (25 miles)

5. Supersoco TSX

Sitting pretty in the middle of our list today we have the Supersoco TSX, the electric moped that looks exactly like a 125cc motorcycle!

The TSX is the proud middle sibling of the TS and TC and was Supersoco’s first attempt at revolutionising urban mobility. Powered by a 1.9kW continuous rated Bosch hub motor, the TSX can reach a top speed of 45mph or it can be electrically modified to limit it to speeds of 28mph, making it ideal for beginners (16 year olds on a CBT).

The TSX also comes fully packed with all-around LED lighting, keyless ignition with security alarm, digital display, and opportunities for app connectivity.

Overall, thanks to the TSX's fairly decent spec, the optional single or double battery option, aggressive styling, and the impressive price tag (£2,799), I think it's fair to say that I see this bike becoming increasingly popular throughout 2024.


  • Fast charging as standard
  • Budget-friendly


  • Range could be improved

4. Niu MQI+ Sport

Just missing out on a top spot we have the Niu MQI+ Sport!

The MQI+ Sport is powered by a 4th generation lithium battery and can reach speeds of up to 28mph and travel a respectable range of 40 miles which is by no means the most mind-blowing set of numbers.

However, what makes the sport so worthy of its fourth spot on this list is thanks to the stand-out spec coming equipped with a new all-steel chassis, a smart integrated dash, LED headlight, dual removable batteries, an electronic combined braking system, as well as anti-theft protection security system.

All in all, if you’re looking to purchase yourself a MQI Sport in 2024, you will be looking at paying the respectable price of £2,699 which I would argue is most definitely worth every penny!


  • Batteries are removable
  • Reasonable charging time
  • Spec is competitive, especially for this price point


  • Batteries are quite heavy

3. Silence S02 Urban

Eagerly kickstarting our top three today we have the Silence S02 Urban.

Over the last few years, Silence has grown in popularity across the continent and the UK. And quite honestly there is no wonder why, thanks to its bold and aggressive styling and variety of spec - all wrapped in £3,325 package.

The Urban model packs a 1.5kw motor and comes with a 2kwh battery giving a claimed maximum range of 35 miles. However, one of the downsides of the S02 Urban is that the battery will take anywhere between 6-8 hours to fully charge, and whilst the battery is removable, it weighs just over 27kg which in comparison to the other models and their batteries on the list could be improved.

To counteract the weight of the battery, Silence has an integrated handle and trolly making it easier to transport for charging – however, this feature is just not ideal if you need to take it up any steps.

Something special with the S02 Urban is that the design of the bike is built with delivery riding in mind, providing a platform for large delivery boxes up to a massive 350L. Alternatively, this platform can be made into a dual passenger seat meaning if you fancy taking a pillion on your city commute, you can!


  • Iconic styling and fantastic road presence
  • Offering that something different
  • From European Manufacturer


  • Batteries weigh 27kg - very heavy
  • Range could be improved

2. Yamaha Neos

Onto second place and this spot goes to the trusty Yamaha Neos - Yamaha's very first 50cc equivalent electric scooter!

Coming equipped with reasonably sized under-seat storage, two riding modes, keyless ignition, connectivity, and large 13-inch wheels, the Neos is hoping to make its mark on the electric scene - and what a good job its doing!

When it comes to the performance of the Neo’s, it sports an excitation 3-phase synchronized motor, producing a top speed of 28mph. It's also equipped with Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) as well as a Motor Control Unit (MCU) to help with both motor, battery, and overall performance.

A special feature of the Neo’s for me is its futuristic and clean-lined styling alongside the two standout colourways in milky white and midnight black, all wrapped in a moped-sized package for £2,950.


  • The styling is a big yes
  • Great city commuter
  • Offering from a big established manufacturer


  • Range could be improved
  • Basic spec for a high pricepoint

1. Piaggio 1

Taking the ultimate top spot on this list is the Piaggio 1 - a well-loved model we have previously reviewed here at BikeMatters.

Piaggio has made big changes to the Power Unit and motor, helping to provide better performance and agile handling, especially during city commuting, coming equipped with a full-colour LCD digital display, LED lighting all around, and a keyless operation system.

One of the unique things about the Piaggio 1 is its variety of colourways on offer. The first three are Forever Grey, White, and Black which are clean and minimalistic, while the last three two-toned liveries Sunshine Mix, Arctic, and Flame are a fun and sporty way to spruce up the bike scene while giving the rider that extra little bit of ultimate road presence.

On the other hand, if you fancy a particularly unique electric scoot, why not check out the limited edition Piaggio 1 designed by international designer Feng Chen Wang for 2024?

Overall the Piaggio 1 is basically an electric equivalent of the Zip which is no bad thing, making an affordable, well-spec’d, and stylish urban commuter, and costing just £2,550 makes it a pretty budget-friendly option too from a well-known brand!


  • A tough competitor to beat overall on the electric moped market
  • Priced very competitively
  • Basically an electric version of the zip


  • The keyless system could be better
  • Wish the range was a bit better
