Velocifero Electrical Bikes Get The Fats Tire Remedy In 2020
Have you ever heard the identify Velocifero? No, I’m not speaking in regards to the fourth Ladytron album. I’m speaking in regards to the comparatively new electrical car maker helmed by industrial designer Alessandro Tartarini. You may acknowledge his household identify as a result of they introduced Italjet into the world. Whereas Italjet is primarily recognized for combustion scooters, Velocifero is all electrical, on a regular basis.
Up till July, 2020, Velocifero was primarily recognized for making electrical scooters. Nonetheless, on the forty first annual Bangkok Worldwide Motor Present, Velocifero lifted the curtain and revealed three new electrical bikes to spherical out its lineup. No, significantly. They’re very, very spherical. (By the way, the BIMS is ongoing by July 26, 2020, so in the event you’re in Thailand proper now, you may go see them in particular person.)
Velocifero beforehand had the Micro Mad kick scooter, in addition to the Mini Mad, which is barely bigger than the Micro Mad and has a seat so you’ll be able to trip on it. Each these small scoots had average-sized tires.
That’s not the case in any respect with the brand new Insanity, although. The tires on the brand new bikes vary from fats to t h i c c, and in the event you had been wishing that somebody would give you a contemporary electrical Fat Cat, chances are you’ll be more than happy about this improvement.
First, there’s the Mad. Not Micro or Mini, this one is simply regular-flavor Mad, no modifiers essential. It seems to be like a barely bigger Mini Mad, and options each a detachable seat and folding handlebars, along with that skateboard deck-derived floorboard. Velocifero plans to supply it with 5 completely different motor choices, ranging between 500 and 1,600 watts. You’ll even have a selection between a lead-acid or a lithium-ion battery, however the lead acid battery solely provides it a claimed vary of between 19 and 25 miles, whereas the Li-Ion battery raises the vary to 35 miles. Prime velocity is 28 mph on the Mads geared up with 1,300 or 1,600 watt motors.
Subsequent is the Seashore Mad, which is the one that almost all calls to thoughts the spirit of the trusty Honda TR200. Sadly, Velocifero hasn’t launched a lot details about this mannequin, which is unhappy as a result of it’s most likely probably the most intriguing of the three for RideApart’s functions. Japanese publication MotorFan bought their arms on one, and say it’s geared up with a 2,000 watt motor that may do a high velocity of 60 kmh (or 37 mph). In addition they mentioned it feels loads like driving a 50cc scooter, however these chunky balloon tires are plenty of enjoyable to observe as you’re rolling alongside. Cost time is 8 to 10 hours on a normal family plug, and vary is 60 to 70 kilometers (37 to 43 miles), per MF.
Lastly, for individuals who wish to channel these turn-of-the-century bicycling seems to be, there’s the Velocifero E-Traditional. The case that holds the electrical motor and battery pack is even made to resemble the type of rudimentary piston engines initially bolted into bicycle frames, again when the idea of motorcycling was new. This bike incorporates a 36V 250/350 watt motor, and may make use of as much as two Panasonic Li-Ion 36V 12ah battery packs. It prices in 6 to eight hours, and has a claimed vary of as much as 80 km, or simply underneath 50 miles. Though it seems to be fairly a bit like a bicycle, this mannequin, too, has acquired the fats tire therapy.
Worth and availability data for these three new fashions isn’t accessible but. In response to its web site, Velocifero sells its bikes in 26 countries. That features most of Europe, in addition to China, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. It’s price noting that it does definitely sell in Thailand as effectively, so it’s potential that this itemizing is just not up-to-date.
