In conjunction with industry leading engineers, we have developed cutting edge technology that allows a wide range of classic Vespa scooters to be run purely on electric power. The exterior styling remains totally original whilst ease of riding, reliability, economy and environmental footprint are all brought into the 21st Century.
Kit includes a DC brushless electric motor, sinusoidal motor controller, custom made swing arm, under seat battery tray and a single removable 18650 Samsung lithium-ion battery. Along with a battery gauge, all cables, LED headlight conversion and a charging cable. An additional side panel battery tray and extra batteries and chargers can be purchased separately.
We offer this as a conversion to customers who already have a classic Scooter or as an engine option to customers who are looking to carry out a new restoration with us.
During the build process we strip out the old petrol engine, electrics and cabling, and install our kit as a direct replacement.
64v 28 ah 1800w battery with a 30-35 mile range.
Fits all machines and was primarily made to fit the under seat compartments where the petrol tank would have been.
72v 31.5 ah 2270w battery with a 35-40 mile range.
Fits all large-frame models and gives an overall higher top speed.
Vespa large-frames can carry one 72v battery under each side panel and when combined with a 64v battery under the seat, can achieve a range of up to 115 miles.
In order to fit a second battery under the side panel, preferably the engine side, an additional battery tray and switch needs to be fitted. The switch operates via the old fuel tap lever, enabling you to switch from battery 1 over to battery 2, just like the reserve used to work. Although both batteries are connected the motor only uses one battery at a time. Both batteries can also be charged whilst onboard should you wish not to remove them.
We recommend carrying two batteries and a charger, insuring you are always covered.
