TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwanese electric scooter maker Gogoro unveiled the newest addition to its Viva Mix lineup on Tuesday (Aug. 17), the Superfast edition.
The Superfast comes with a more powerful 7.2 kW engine, compared to the Viva Mix Belt’s 6.4 kW motor. The new ride also has a maximum of 9.65 horsepower, an improvement over the Viva Mix Belt's 8.05 hp.
Similar to the Belt, the Superfast also comes with the FLO DRIVE drivetrain which uses a helical gear setup equipped with a Gates carbon fiber belt that drives the back wheel. The Superfast also got an upgrade to its front wheel, which now comes with dual-piston caliper brakes.
As for aesthetics, the new ride comes in Acid Black with a customized sport headlight frame, colorized spoilers, and a signature Superfast seat. The dashboard uses a negative display that can be seen clearly during day and night conditions.

With the batteries, the vehicle weighs 112 kg and comes with 23.9 L of trunk space under the seat. In terms of length, it is 1.77 meters long, similar to the Viva Mix Belt.
According to Gogoro, the Superfast has a range of around 150 km (93.21 miles) under ideal conditions. The Viva Mix Superfast will set buyers back around NT$84,980 (US$3,052).
Gogoro said it hopes the Superfast can tap into demand as college students head back to school and the country slowly emerges out of the soft COVID lockdown.
