British Electric Invasion Zapps HighPerformance EScooter

Zapp is a brand-new UK-based company that will launch its very first model, the i300 in November. In order to give a sense of what to expect, the company unveiled a teaser video of its first product that highlights certain of its features.The most striking one is undeniably the z-shaped frame of the scooter. The i300 will be built on a motorsport-inspired lightweight aluminum structure. At the front, a quirky-shaped windshield that reminds me of a Star Wars battle droid head is decorated with a honeycomb pattern repeated on the footrest.According to the designs used in the trailer, the scooter will sport a red front fairing with matching red front fork and coil spring suspension that will contrast the black ensemble nicely. Distribution of the power will be provided by what looks like a timing belt, meaning the motor isn’t directly propelling the back wheel like in some electric scooters and bikes.Power is expected to be comparable to that of a 300cc scooter. Because range remains one of the major roadblocks to the development of the electric bike market, Zapp promises the i300 will have a competitive range to offer, stating that “range anxiety is a thing of the past.” The compact battery will also be easy to carry along for easy charging wherever you have to be.A digital display is integrated into the handlebar and shows a series of buttons that will allow the future user to navigate the onboard computer, including turning “regen” on and off (regenerative braking maybe?). We don’t have a clear date for the model’s unveil; all we know for sure is that the Zapp i300 is “coming soon.”.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; } Yamaha Introduces New Range of E-Bikes Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on October 15, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Performance and scooter can go hand in handThe future of electric scooters lies in performance?
