The Italian two-wheeler major, Piaggio has unveiled its first electric bike at the ongoing EICMA 2016. The electric Vespa, except of its fuel system, will be a like any other conventional Vespa scooter. As per the company, they are bringing the most recent electric innovation to a vehicle that will retain every bit of the components that have been crucial to the brand's prosperity. The styling, nimbleness, usability and riding delight will resemble a normal Vespa scooter.
Electric engines are appropriate to scooters, as the CVT gives the rider the same consistent feel that an electric engine gives. Furthermore, there are no worries about the presence of the powerplants, as scooters generally hides them behind bodyworks. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed any details regarding the specs of its first electric scooter.
The concept electric scooter was showed up with a brushed metal body, just like any other Vespa’s and is expected to go on sale in 2017. The pricing is not yet revealed, but we assume it should be on aggressive side and will make a significant impact on the electric scooter’s market.
The brand has additionally presented the bike called 946 Red. With every Vespa 946 Red which gets sold, the company will donate $150 towards the help of HIV victims. The new Vespa 946 is intended to celebrate the year 1946 when the first Vespa scooter was launched.
