Advanced electric energy products, classic motorcycle brands and looks,Styling and new energy, two hot spots focus on Vespa’s Elettrica models.
The eternal Italian design will always exist, whether it is an internal combustion engine, electric or any new energy source in the future.
In terms of appearance,Vespa Elettrica is a typical “wasp” designThis is also considered a design classic of Vespa’s modern evolution.Vespa is so ingrained in the scooter world that it is difficult for other brands to beat Piaggio’s Vespa family.
ElettricaFront face inherits the appearance of Italy since the 1946 war,useAircraft landing gear technology as a front suspension, The right side of the wheel set is fully displayed, which is often said by ordinary motorcycle friends“Front and rear single rocker” type. The leg shield at the front side has a graceful round curve, and the headlights maintain the classic single-round light shape. You will find the LED light group changed by technology after power on.
Instrument panel is 4.3-inch TFT LCD screenBy connecting a smartphone via Bluetooth and the Vespa multimedia system as standard, you can more easily answer calls and check vehicle information. Various controls are done on the handlebar. The charm of technology will eventually be accepted by the public.
The instrument panel of the LCD screen has four brightness levels, and the screen brightness is automatically adjusted under the detection of the light sensor. What most car owners like most isGPS function included with the application: Whether you can’t find a car in the parking lot, or someone has moved your vehicle, you can use your smartphone to quickly check the location, and by the way help you call the police … (凯 励 程 ~)
The seat cushion is relatively short, and it is more suitable for a single person to ride, with a non-slip surface treatment. There is storage space under the seat, but due to the battery mentioned, this storage space is not large. The position of the passenger’s foot is treated, and a rubber anti-skid is added to place the foot. The passenger armrest is at the rear of the car, and the taillights and turn signals are below. Believe me, Vespa Elettrica may not really be a good choice if you often use it for dual load.
Front side use200mm single disc brake, Used on the back side140mm drum brake typeWith “Power recovery system“When braking, a part of the kinetic energy is converted back into electric energy, and at the same time the riding speed is slowed down.
Whether internal combustion engine or electric drive,The shock absorption system will exist. The only adjustable shock absorption is the pretension force, which is limited to the rear shock absorption..
The true charm of Vespa Elettrica’s technological and stylish Ming brand lamb car lies in:It has a four-kilowatt motor and drive system with two different power modes.
The owner can choose between two different power modes:Standard mode or ECO energy saving modeEach mode has its own power consumption rate and performance curve.“ECO mode” limits the top speed to about 18 miles (29 kilometers), in this relatively useless mode … the owner will see 60 miles (100 kilometers) of driving distance.
Electricity is stored in a 4.2-kilowatt lithium-ion battery. Vespa Elettrica claims that the lithium battery can last at least 10 years and / or 1000 charge cycles, guaranteeing a maximum range of at least 60,000 miles. The owner uses a 220-volt power supply, which can be plugged in directly.Full charge time is about 4 hours.
In terms of transmission system: there is no gear at all, at least not in the traditional sense; only one motor directly drives it, providing silent power for the 11-inch rear wheels.
Vespa Elettrica is currently priced at $ 7,500 (approximately 51,000 yuan, the import price may have to double), Which will be launched in April 2019, this price will also determine that only a few fashion people will become car owners.
Grand Pai found:Every time when talking about electric, there will always be a debate about “lost the soul”. Most riding enthusiasts define the sound, vibration, and internal combustion engine as the soul.
Da Pai Jun is a cycling enthusiast, but I do not resist the changes brought about by the times (if you cannot embrace the changes, you will be eliminated). It is not necessarily that the internal combustion engine is backward, nor does it mean that the internal combustion engine should be despised. Even under the current trend of four-stroke, water-cooled, multi-cylinder, and EFI, there are still fans of two-stroke, air-cooled, single-cylinder, and carburetor .
Hobbies, convenience, and the trend of the times can coexist, and it is not necessary to resist each other. In general … if you want to send me Vespa Elettrica, I will not refuse!
