Zapp, a new scooter manufacturer headquartered in the UK, has unveiled the i300. A fully electric, high-performance scooter designed to lead the urban transport revolution, the i300 aims to make commuting more fun, stylish and sustainable.
The new Zapp i300 is powered by a pair of cutting-edge, lightweight lithium-ion batteries and a maintenance-free air-cooled interior permanent magnet electric motor. The i300’s 14kW motor produces 587Nm of torque at the rear wheel, which combined with a lightweight construction of 90kg, means a 0-30mph time of less than 2.4 seconds
The easy-to-transport batteries enable owners to charge by simply removing the battery and plugging it into any household socket. Convenience and practicality is maximised, while range anxiety is now a thing of the past.
To give users extra range on the go, the new Zapp i300 includes rider-selectable ‘regenerative braking’, which returns energy when the rider shuts the throttle. Using the regenerative braking system as the primary means to slow down in heavy traffic not only increases the longevity of the scooter’s brakes, but also reduce another pollution element – particulates.
A 140/60 ultra low-profile nitrogen-filled rear tyre ensures an effective deployment of the available torque from standstill. Front brakes feature a cross-drilled vented full-floating disc, four-piston calliper and ABS to provide commensurate stopping power. Both progressive-rate gas-filled upside-down front forks with a rear coilover pushrod and mono rear swing arm suspension inspired by superbikes ensure a safe and engaging ride.
The Zapp i300 can be configured to match any taste or style and is available to order at www.zappscooter.com.
