Can electric motorcycle ride in the rain?
Can Eahora electric motorcycle ride in the rain?
The answer is yes. The motor and battery are waterproof. However, there are a few important precautions to keep in mind, such as not storing the electric motorcycle in a potentially flooded area. This precaution will help maintain the longevity and performance of your electric motorcycle.
Safety precautions for riding an electric motorcycle in the rain:
- Avoid riding in water that can submerge your motor and battery. Under no circumstances should you put your electric motorcycle underwater.
- Do not ride through deep water. Immersion in deep water can allow water to enter the motor or battery housing. If your motorcycle is immersed in water and you are unsure if water has entered these areas, it is recommended to wait until it is dry before turning the power back on.This precaution will help prevent a potential short circuit.
- If your electric motorcycle has been submerged in deep water, it is essential to exercise caution before resuming operation. Do not turn on the power until you are certain that the motor and battery are dry. Failure to do so may result in a short circuit. While the motorcycle will eventually dry out, the damage caused by moisture, such as rusting, is irreversible.
Tips for Maintaining Electric Motorcycles in Rainy Weather :
- Keep your electric motorcycle indoors. Storing your motorcycle in a dry environment will prevent it from degrading and corroding quickly. Even newer models with better seals can still be affected if left outside for a long time.
- Use a protective cover if stored outdoors. A cover will shield your motorcycle from rain, mud, and sun exposure, keeping it in better condition. Eahora's rain cover works well.
- Clean your motorcycle after riding in the rain. While not always necessary, wiping off any excess moisture with a rag and drying the battery and compartment can help prevent damage from wet conditions.
