AUTO BILD MOTORRAD has selected eight retro scooters with electric motors that combine seamless internal mobility with multiple war dolce. The list starts with Emco Nova and ends with the brand new Yamaha Neo. There is a summary of the most important data.
This can also be used on a scooter
Emco is a structure in the scooter section. This also applies to old-fashioned motorcycles such as Nova. Its small ten-inch wheels are not always ideal for driving stability. But removable batteries make it easier to charge around town.
Prices start at 3599 euros per version with a battery of 2.3 hp and 28 Ah. With a 4.1 hp engine and a second optional battery, the Nova costs 4,999 euros, excluding additional costs. The top speed is 45 km / h, and the manufacturer specifies a range of 50 to 130 km, depending on the version. Payment time is two to four hours.
Govec’s E Swallow
yes In the electric scooter league, Schwalbe drives to the end of the price level. The Govecs company from Munich has successfully revived the cult sculpture: as the 45th edition, the E-Schwalbe has a output of four kW and considers itself an alternative to the 50 series combustion engines.
The Bosch car train pushes Elektro-Schwalbe forward forcibly. ABS is available as an option. A battery and a charger with a coiled cable are built into the E-Schwalbe. 135 kg can be loaded, the top optional case provides valuable storage space. Price: from 5590 euros.
Kumpan 54 Inspire
Brand Scooters Kumpan playing with chic of the 50s and early 60s. The machines are located south of Bonn. According to the report, 80 percent of those parts are from Germany!
The Kumpan 54 Inspire has 4.1 hp and is said to be 62 km long with one battery. Two and three batteries have an additional cost. The charge load is supplied with an 188 kg battery. For the model year 2022 there were software updates and upgrades such as new LED lights and adjusted ergonomics.
KSR is considered to be an expert in importing and developing makes and models. A personalized Austrian brand is called the Motron. Motron offers two affordable wheels that are also (or specifically) suitable for a tight budget.
The lovely Cupertino is available from euro 1999. You can call it a competitive price. Cupertino looks like a Honda Supercub, the world’s best-selling car. Thin wheels, with 17-inch wires should be able to withstand a lot. The battery can be discharged. There are LED lights for good visibility. Two HP brakes and drums are enough to drive comfortably.
Chic retroTrinity Romex Cruiser is available from 3299 euros. At this price, the little one is trying to act out a balance between good shell and modern technology and is a real eye. Chrome attachments especially bring the viewer back to the golden years of scooter construction. (This was the result of the 2019 experiment of PICTURES.)
Here, too, the battery can be removed for charge. This is important for anyone who does not have a garage and electricity. If necessary, the column can be extended with a second battery. Fast is not the Romex method. What you should know: From about 30 percent of the charge, the maximum speed decreases. Then the sensitive nature in the city feels like a traffic barrier.
Another good one The Trinity Scooter is called Uranus. The company develops in Germany and is based in China. The retro appearance and technology of Uranus and, among other things, the hub of the wheels are welcomed along with the points, but they do not allow the German Chinese to stand out from the crowd of its competitors.
The situation is different with LG batteries. They just can’t be removed from the scooter for a fee. If necessary, individual battery cells can be replaced. Very creative! Uranus has 5.4 hp and runs at a top speed of 45 km / h. Cost rate: 3499 euros. If that is not enough, you can also get Uranus as R version and even as RS later this year.
For enthusiastic enthusiasts, there is no scooter that represents quiet browsing and dolce war beyond this. Vespa and Piaggio. Wasps are already prepared for the possible future without combustion engines. They are available with 5.4 horsepower and a range of 70 to 100 miles.
But E-Vespa has not yet been able to build on the success of combustion engine versions. A possible reason for this may be the lack of modern technology on board. There is no ABS, for example, and the 70 / h version only has a brake mix. Batteries and chargers are fully installed. So you have to get to the hole. Price: from 6390 euros. This is not a business.
Electricity is coming in June 2022 Yamaha Neo on the market. It will cost 3324 euros and will be available in two colors. Yamaha has experience with 50s and drives electronics. Neo comedian now wants to combine both.
The navel wheel with no action and no brush on the rear wheel provides motion. Its power output is highest in normal driving conditions of 2.06 kWh at 40 km / h. Yamaha recommends this situation for normal operation. There is also a voluntary environment. With the free Yamaha MyRide app, scooters and smart phones can be integrated. Most owners with a hat room under the seat should ensure practicality in everyday life.
