Vectrix Electric Scooter: My Experiences and Verdict of this Electric Motorcyle.
It is fully electric with zero emissions - yet still has AMAZING performance.
They call it a scooter but it really is a full blown bike as it has the power equivalent of a 400cc engine but has a 125cc licence requirement so is as easy as getting a moped licence.
You might notice the smile on my face as I sit on the Vectrix Electric Scooter in this picture - and this is just in the showroom!
Here are some exciting stats:
The Vectrix Electric Scooter is a REAL PERFORMANCE BIKE and ticks a lot of my boxes straight away. It has a good top speed so you can go pretty much anywhere without holding up traffic like you would on the electric moped!
It has great acceleration which is the same with most electric vehicles, especially bikes, but this really will fly off the mark when you pull that throttle!
It has a range of 110 km @ 40km/hr which will let you go on trips to the country or most places you need and with a full charge time of 2.5 hrs it’s easy to charge during the day between trips.
Its battery also has an estimated life of 10 years or 80,000 km which means the rest of the bike will probably start falling apart before the battery goes so you don’t have the expensive hidden battery cost.
A full charge costs only about 30 cent which is so unbelievably cheap compared to petrol costs, and they claim it will cost less than €150 a year for maintenance.
A great feature of this bike is a thing called regenerative braking.
It means instead of using the normal brakes you can pull the throttle backwards and an engine goes in reverse
slowing you down and putting energy back in the thirsty batteries again.
You can also use this for slow reversing which is very handy if you’re not used to moving a heavy bike around
(or if you’re sick of moving a heavy bike around too much!).
