FAQs

The Swaygo Design Concept?

The patented Swaygo system is based on the Tilting Parallelogram principle. When the Rider tilts/leans the motorbike into a corner, the floor of the vehicle does not tilt, but remains level with the ground. This allows the rider to have normal as well as active control, with their legs and feet, to influence the lean/tilt angle and to keep the vehicle upright at slow speeds and when stopping.

Who can ride a Swaygo?

Riding the Electric Swaygo ARCA 3 or 4 wheel motorcycles is very similar to riding a normal scooter or motorcycle. If you are 16 years or older, with a suitable motorcycle license, you will be able to ride the ARCA vehicles. It takes about 10 minutes to make the transition. Speed options from a maximum of 120 kph/75 mph down to 80 kph/50 mph are available to suit all vehicles categories such as the Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) for the USA and L5e or L7e for Europe and others. If you do not have a motorcycle license, you can drive the NEV and L5e vehicle category vehicles with a normal motor car license.

Easy to Maneuver & Park?
The new Electric Swaygo ARCA 3 and 4 wheel motorcycles are very narrow and are only 740 mm/29.5 inches wide. This makes the vehicles easier to maneuver, especially in heavy traffic. The ARCA 3 & 4 wheeler can park in the smallest parking bays that are meant for conventional 2-wheel motorcycles. The standard reverse gear is  easy to use and especially handy when having to reverse up steeper gradients. The Vertical Hold Latch keeps the vehicle locked in the vertical upright position when parking or when driving at slow speeds below 10 kph/6 mph in a confined area.


ARCA Vehicle & Battery Warranty?
When purchasing the new Electric Swaygo ARCA 3 or 4 wheeler you receive a Warranty of Two Years on the Vehicle and the Battery Pack, from date of purchase, subject to Terms and Conditions applicable at the time. In some countries, to reduce installment costs, the Battery Pack may be purchased on a Rental basis. Besides lower monthly installments Battery Rentals provide a certain degree of extended Warranty in regard to battery life and possible failure, but the ownership of the battery pack remains vested with the Rental company.
