Voge updates scrambler vary with new 525 ACX bike


Voge has introduced a brand new scrambler variant of its 500 AC bike, the five hundred ACX, with a visible refresh and enlarged motor. 

Voge’s presence continues to develop in Europe and the newest addition sees it increase its scrambler vary from simply the established 300 ACX to now embrace the brand new 525 ACX. 

The Voge 525 ACX is derived from the bare 500 AC. To scramble the five hundred AC into the 525 ACX, the tailpipe has been raised to finish nearly on the top of the tail part, the alloy wheels have grow to be wire-spokes, a small entrance display screen has been added, and the entrance mudguard has been simplified.

Moreover, the engine has been revised, and principally had its displacement elevated. The unique 500 AC had a 471cc twin-cylinder with a DOHC configuration and liquid cooling. Most of that continues to be the identical for the 525 ACX, however the displacement is elevated from 471cc to 494cc. 

Meaning, Motorrad studies, a rise in peak energy to 47.6 horsepower, and a 2Nm improve in peak torque from 42.5Nm to 44.5Nm. That efficiency will propel a dry weight of 185kg.

On the chassis, the technicalities are paying homage to the five hundred AC, with a metal tubular body; twin-piston Nissin callipers on twin 300mm entrance discs; a single-piston Nissin calliper on a single 220mm rear disc; a 41mm USD fork; and an adjustable rear shock absorber. 

The wheels, although, change. In addition to the aforementioned change to wire spokes, the entrance wheel for the ACX replaces the AC’s 17-inch with a 19-inch, and its 120/70 tyre with a 110/80 tyre. Moreover, on the rear the tyre swaps from a 160/60 to a 150/70.

As for the ergonomics, the seat top is about at 820mm, the bottom clearance at 200mm, and the wheelbase is 1,450mm. 

Neither the value nor the supply of the Voge 525 ACX is but out there, however we’d have the ability to make some estimates based mostly on the value of the five hundred AC. In Germany, the five hundred AC €6,199, which is equal to round £5,400 at time of writing (December 2022). As compared, the five hundred AC is marketed within the UK at £5,799. Motorrad estimates a rise in value of round €500 for the ACX in comparison with the AC, placing the scrambler at €6,700, which is round £5,800 (December 2022). Contemplating the relative price of the five hundred AC within the UK in comparison with Germany, it could be cheap to anticipate the Voge 525 ACX to be marketed within the area of £6,200-£6,300.
