S-Pedelec Scorpion fs 26: Automobile Engineering for Top Speed

In the groundbreaking class of fast electric bikes, HP Velotechnik’s Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec focuses on secure and stable road handling for a multi-track vehicle with innovative chassis technology from the automotive engineering sector. The touring trike’s low center of gravity and the solid rider support in the ergonomically-designed recumbent seat enables dynamic acceleration. While all HP Velotechnik trikes can be equipped with an electric motor to become a Pedelec with supported speeds of up to 25 km/h (16 mph) within the EU or 32 km/h (20 mph, US Class 1), only the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec has been engineered for a maximum motor supported speed of 45 km/h (28 mph). In the USA this trike meets all requirements for a Class 3 electric bicycle.

Thanks to the efficient recumbent position, the low air resistance extends the rechargeable battery’s range, especially at the high assisted speeds of up to 45 km/h (28 mph). At such high speeds, a welldesigned, full-suspension chassis is extremely important. The Scorpion fs 26 touring trike is the perfect base vehicle for powerful motorization and high average speeds of over 25 km/h (16 mph).

Moped With Type Approval

Mobile Future with Stamp and Seal

The speed pedelec is driven by a powerful and almost noiseless rear wheel hub motor with a rated peak power of 1000 watts. The German manufacturer claims an efficiency of more than 85 %. The standard equipment of the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec includes a starting aid, which pushes the vehicle up to 4 km/h (2.5 mph), even without pedalling.

Plenty of energy is supplied by a Li-Ion battery with a capacity of 651 Wh. A range-extending energy recovery system enables the recuperation function, which uses the motor as a generator when driving downhill. Even more energy for up to 120 high-speed kilometres (75 miles) is provided by the optional supplemental battery. Like the first battery, it is located deep under the
seat in the center of the vehicle to ensure a balanced center of gravity. Once one “tank” is empty, you can exchange the two batteries in two easy steps.

Convenient: The trike, which can carry a load of up to 130 kg, can also be folded compactly for transport in just a few steps. HP Velotechnik’s self-locking folding hinge makes the process a breeze.

The fast Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec has an EU type approval as a moped (L2e-P), which is valid for EU countries and Switzerland. The EU driving permit for it is included in the car driving license. To learn more about the legal requirements

To learn more about the legal requirementsfor operating the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec in your homestate, please contact your state authorities or your local HP Velotechnik retailer.

Despite its unique positioning as a moped, numerous innovations from the bicycle world of HP Velotechnik have also found their way into the S-Pedelec. The focus is on comfort and an enjoyable driving experience. At HP Velotechnik, we believe this fast electric trike offers a great perspective for the mobility of the future. Given the impending traffic congestion in urban areas and growing environmental awareness, fast E-Trikes such as the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec may one day be regarded as one of the first building blocks to offer a solution to this challenge of the century.

Frequently Asked Questions

fast foldable trike tricycle for adults fs 26 s-pedelec

The characteristics of our trikes depend on many factors. The wheel size is only one. HP Velotechnik optimized the geometry of each model for specific characteristics (with or without full suspension, foldable or not foldable, small rear wheel or large rear wheel, etc.). A conversion in this area would harm the overall balanced system and thus on the driving characteristics – therefore our trikes are not intended for such a conversion. With the particular type of S-Pedelecs with type or individual approval by the TÜV, this would even result in the loss of the operating license.

In our concept, the specialist trade is the central sales pillar. Our selected and trained specialist dealers can advise you in detail. Above all, however, they offer a promptly available service locally, which we cannot provide within the framework of our manufactory with some production processes planned for the long term. For these reasons we also do not sell directly to the customer at the factory.

Changes to the vehicle are possible within certain limits that are more precisely prescribed by European legislation and monitored by TÜV. For example, you can use protective fenders, and hand rests. For typical wearing parts (such as brake pads and tires), however, you may only use approved spare parts. Otherwise, in the worst case, the operating permit and insurance will be invalidated. Your specialist dealer will know in each case which conversions or replacement options are possible; there is a list of them drawn up, amongst others, by the German Zweirad Industrie-Verband (ZIV).

The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec is legally not a bicycle, but a motor vehicle, comparable to a moped. In Germany, you must not use cycle paths with your S-Pedelec unless the cycle paths are specially marked. Forest roads are excluded from use.

In principle, this is possible – but only with trailers and couplings that are suitable for use on vehicles of class L2e (three-wheel motor vehicles with a maximum design speed of up to 45 km/h / 28 mph). However, these are practically non-existent on the market. If you use an unauthorized trailer or hitch, the approval for the entire towing combination becomes invalid.
