The manufacturer of e-Moped Silence has unveiled a new high-end model, the S01+.
Based on the existing S01 Connected, the new model has performance equivalent to a 125cc motorcycle with 5.6 and 7.5 kW engines. It can hit 30 mph in 3.9 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 62 mph.
The S01+ also features adjustable suspension, ventilated disc brakes, sport mode and a “push-to-pass” feature that allows the top speed to be temporarily increased to 68 mph.
Connectivity is provided through the Silence app which allows control of important settings such as charging status check, remote lock/unlock activation and route planning via built-in Google Maps.
“Silence is a stylish and practical alternative to combustion bikes, whether you are a private individual or a professional user,” says Tony Lewis, co-founder of Silence UK.
“Now with S01+, we’re adding an extra sporty style, for those who want their Silence to stand out from the crowd. Production of the S01+ is available in limited numbers, so it’s really first come, first served!”
The S01+ is the sixth model in Silence’s electric range, which includes a range of personal and professional two-wheelers. All models are equipped with Silence’s “click and go” removable and portable lithium-ion batteries. The cells can be charged via any 240V outlet and, according to Silence, can reduce running costs by 80% compared to ICE-powered scooters.
The mopeds also come with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, three-year battery warranty, and two-year AA roadside assistance coverage.
Prices start from £6,795 in the UK, although the company has not said when buyers will receive their vehicles.
The company was founded in Barcelona in 2012 and has since grown into a team of 165 people that can produce almost 10,000 scooters a year. It is also the only manufacturer of electric two-wheelers in Spain and also designs and manufactures its own batteries and battery management system.
