Four years after we successfully made our first classic Vespa electric conversion kit we recently appeared in some major international press in the USA New York Times & Italian, La Republica publications. This resulted in a surge in enquiries from customers around the world.
Our vintage scooter electric conversion kits have been a great success, more so outside of the UK than within, which may be a reflection on how the rest of the world is moving faster towards electrification of vehicles than we are over here right now.
We continue to work on ways to improve the kit and, recently over the winter, we have developed a much simpler and easier installation process for the kit with the help of our new "control box" addition. Basically all of the electrical components now live inside a neat sealed box making it "bolt in, plug and play".
We intend to follow this new development through with some instruction videos on our You Tube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBBJr7hx3r1PRH58Mi9Uttw
Other electric scooter developments to come soon are the disc brake version and an electric race motor capable of over 80 mph.
