the Fiat 500 is a car, the Vespa scooter, for scooters and mopeds: a little piece of Italy on wheels. The vehicles are designiconen, and as a result have always been very popular. But times are changing, and it retromodellen need to progress to believe. That is why there is a Vespa with an electric version of it. The brand of this is the growing competition from China in the face?
now The electric Bicycle has been Elettrica mentioned, that is the mood you are in. Those who want to be in tip-top Italian scooter isn't such a name, that is so nice on the tongue, rolls down? Also, the appearance of the fans in the direct appeal; indeed, it is hard to see that this is an all-electric variant.
of Course there is also the exhaust, and a trained spotter will have noticed that there are blue touches are applied. Moreover, they are available in different colors. Under the comfortable seat has a place for your helmet. Also, the plug has a seat given him.
this is a measurement that is consistent with that of the brandstofexemplaren. Thus, measurement of the Bicycle Elettrica 1,87 m in height and 73,5 cm in width. Also, the seat height is 79 inches with the same.
finally, The Elettrica is exactly the same size as a regular Bicycle. (Photo: Vespa).Battery is not removable < / p> Vespa Elettrica is available as either a 45-mile-per-hour and as a specimen of 70 miles per hour. The latter can also be as a moped or scooter to ride. Whichever version you choose, the power to accelerate is impressive, and is addictive. The brakes are also very good at their job, will be calculated.
In all cases, the motor scooter with a battery of 4.2 kWh on-board, which allows for a driving range of 100 miles may be possible. During our test, we drove from Amsterdam to Den Haag for a distance of approximately 65 km from the hotel, and upon arrival, was the fact that there are still 35 miles of range on.
The charging of the battery pack, take it to the normal socket of about four hours, and that is in the world of electric mo - and the motor is very fast. Since the battery is not removable, you will need to actually have a driveway, storage shed, barn, or a garage(box) with an electrical outlet is available.
for example, If you are like myself, in an apartment to live in, you have to be creative. We had the scooter in the front yard of a friends to load. That isn't intended to be a vehicle that you have, especially in the cities, where many people live in an apartment.
whatever the case may be, and let the Chinese competitor, the Niu show. We'll come to you, while the less advanced (50 to 70 kilometers), as well as the battery pack, to take home with them. The Npm scores are also better in terms of ease-of-use and noise levels.

Noisy, during the ride
The Bicycle Elettrica does indeed a good show, with its digital instrument cluster with display screen of 4.3 inches, and the so-called " dark mode, but the controls are not better. It takes a while for the engine, the signal "ready" and the reverse is in the first instance, it is not that simple.
the change will not be easy, as there are important items on the menu, such as the extent to which energy can be recovered.
The biggest letdown was the driving. Or, more precisely, the level of noise during acceleration. The Vespa, the Elettrica is pretty good. First of all, I thought that this was done on purpose, because it sounds an awful lot like that of a normal person. In the city, this can be an advantage, as cyclists, and for the shoppers, you will be so good to hear.
now, On to the Friendly web site, the Elettrica, however, was praised for its quiet driving experience, so you can contribute to a better quality of life in the city. That is why we have a second one and tested it (with special thanks to Scooter, 070, Den Haag), in order to ensure that the level of noise is not specific to our test unit was supposed to be. The second Elettrica, was slightly quieter, but still not as quiet as the competition.
Scooterdealer Beumer de Jong Amsterdam, who, on behalf of Piaggio and the Vespa, the Netherlands, the Elettrica has been loaned had been given, which confirmed that the electric Bicycle that have what sounds to produce.
in order For an electric moped or scooter, it produces the Elettrica quite a bit of noise. (Photo: Vespa).Conclusion < / p> Anyone ever been to the electric deelscooters of Felyx-or-GO-Sharing (which are, respectively, the scooters, the brands of Niu and also to the Chinese Super Soco you like) after it has been driven, knows what can be done: that electric scooters can be truly silent, and is really effortless due to the flow of traffic.
finally, The sound power level of a Vespa scooter, it is even more disappointing when you take the price into account: a Elettrica cost 6.629 of the euro. It is not uncommon for the competition, more than half of it is cheaper. For that you need to do to row back, but there are ease-of-use for it. On the other hand, the Vespa quite a bit of power to accelerate, lots of storage space, the comfort and the unmistakable Italian design and features.
however, You have to have a very, very big fan of the Vespa design, the difference in price is going to get in. Fortunately for the Italians, there are lovers and not a defect.
