Electric trike for confortable travelling
The new Scorpion fs26 S-Pedelec is a fast electric trike up to 45 km/h with comfortable chassis technology from the automotive sector, an ergonomic seat position, secure road holding and quickly foldable, presented at Eurobike Freidrichshafen (Germany) this year. With this vehicle the German company HP Velotechnik will exhibit the first full suspension electric trike with assisted speeds of up to 45 km/h that can be compactly folded up for transportation.
In the promising class of fast e-bikes, also known as Spedelecs, HP Velotechnik´s model Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec focuses on secure road holding for a multi-track vehicle with chassis technology from the automotive engineering sector, by using an independant suspensión by McPherson.
Just before the opening of the world´s largest bike show Eurobike, the new HP Velotechnik trike has already convinced a jury of experts:The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec will be awarded with the Eurobike Award 2012 for particularly innovative design and above-average product quality.
The touring trike´s low center of gravity and the good rider support in the ergonomically-designed recumbent seat enable dynamic acceleration. The independent suspension with adjustable McPherson struts on the front axle, stabilizer system, full suspension, and long wheelbase provide secure road holding even when cornering hard.
A 500 watt rear wheel BionX hub motor provides extra propulsion if desired. The motor draws its power from a 48 V Li-Mn rechargeable battery with a 423 Wh capacity. The efficient transmission of the human/motor power to the road is guaranteed by the high-traction 26-inch rear wheel never before seen on a full-suspension foldable Etrike.
The low air resistance thanks to the efficient recumbent position extends the rechargeable battery´s range, especially at the high assisted speeds of up to 45 km/h reached by the fast electric bikes.
The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec is available from specialist dealers from early 2013 with a starting price of 6,990 euros (US export model US$ 7,495).
