HOP OXO e-motorcycle receives first OTA update since launch, brings new features
HOP Electric has announced the first over-the-air (OTA) update on the OXO electric motorcycle in its stable. The HOP OXO electric motorcycle went on sale late last year and the latest VCU Firmware OTA (FOTA) Version 4.90 brings a number of improvements to the electric offering. Upgrades include better acceleration in the Eco mode, better connectivity and range prediction as well.
HOP Electric says the latest FOTA Ver 4.90 on the OXO electric motorcycle now allows the bike to perform twice as better with Eco mode acceleration even in the low-speed mode. 4G connectivity is now seamless with updated network latching, while the battery range display is more accurate now with better algorithms based on real-time battery health and usage. The company says that the updates have been introduced based on the data points received after customer usage.

The HOP OXO is a 125 cc motorcycle equivalent and rivals the Revolt RV400 and the Tork Kratos R in the segment. The model draws power from the 3.75 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with the electric motor churning out 6.2 kW (8.2 bhp) and 200 Nm of peak torque. The e-motorcycle promises a range of 150 km on a single charge. While the latest OTA update does not improve the range in any way, a more accurate prediction is certainly a big welcome.
