The VS1 is a strong, robust and faithful companion. It is low-maintenance and ready for anything. Born as a commuting vehicle, it has extreme practical features, clean lines, and a modern style.
Efficiency is paramount: in front, a large 70 liter “basket” useful for transporting bulky objects up to 30 kg; behind, a very sturdy luggage rack, easily passing reliability tests of 1 million strong vibrations. There is also a large drawer with a capacity of 2 liters, bringing the total load capacity to 150 kg (excluding the rider).
The center stand is strong and stable. It is accompanied by a “double lateral crutch”: right and left stands, to suit the needs of different work situations. The other crucial point is the very essence of the VS1: thanks to its electric motor, there are no polluting emissions and it is totally silent. The vehicle can be used indoors, on traffic block days and in limited traffic areas. Furthermore, a button on the handlebar allows for reverse rotation of the electric motor- a reverse gear! A very useful feature when the vehicle is heavily loaded.
With a power of 4,000 Watts, VS1 can overcome climbs of 15°, matching performances of a gas-powered 125. Maximum speed is 80 km/h with a powerful peak of 171 Nm, smoothly delivered like only an electric motor can. Autonomy is not a problem: a 60 V - 45 Ah battery with a 4-year warranty comes standard, with an optional second one offered at a discounted price. This allows the VS1 to cover 150 km, and be recharged from 0 to 100% in three and a half hours. The battery can easily withstand 1500 charging cycles. To facilitate recharging, the batteries can be removed, as can the charger housed under the saddle.
The frame‘s central part is divided into three large diameter tubes, two of which extend to support the luggage rack. In front of it there is a telescopic fork and behind it a shock absorber connected to a single oscillating arm. Disassembly of the wheel takes only 5 seconds. The wheels are 16" in front and 14" in the back, and even the tires have long-lasting performance: 10,000 km before replacing the front, 7,500 for the rear. A combined braking system of 240 mm Ø discs in front and 180 mm Ø behind rounds the package out, as does a spectacular LED front optical unit, a USB port to recharge mobile phones and the possibility of connecting scooters, smartphones and the cloud to obtain a plethora of information.
