The fast electric foldable adults trike
S-Pedelec Scorpion fs 26: Automobile Engineering for Top Speed
+++++ Model available again from November 2020 +++++
In the promising class of fast electric bikes, HP Velotechnik’s Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec focuses on secure road holding for a multi-track vehicle with chassis technology from the automotive engineering sector. The low center of gravity of this touring trike and the excellent rider support in the ergonomically-designed recumbent seat guarantee dynamic acceleration.
The low air resistance thanks to the efficient, streamlined recumbent position extends the battery range, especially notable at the high assisted speeds of up to 45 km/h (28 mph) that are reached by speed pedelecs. At such high speed, a well-tuned, full-suspension chassis is of paramount importance. 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).
The Speed pedelec is driven by a powerful and silent rear hub motor. A 48 V Li-Ion rechargeable battery with a 651 Wh capacity provides a great deal of energy. The recuperation function uses the motor as a generator when braking and thus extends the range through energy recovery. The trike comes standard with a start assist function, which accelerates the trike at the push of a button without pedaling.
Certified by German TÜV

The S-Pedelec Scorpion fs 26 with electric assistance up to 45 km/h (28 mph) is, in countries under EU-law, defined as a three wheeled moped. For those vehicles exist other regulations than for usual bicycles or E-bikes with an assisted speed up to 25 km/h (16 mph).
What did that mean for the engineers at HP Velotechnik? Every single part of the Scorpions fs 26 S-Pedelec had to pass a challenging test program to get the official approval of the German TÜV. For the demanding brake performance tests, even under wet conditions, the engineers teamed up with the Technical University of Rüsselsheim to develop a special test machine in compliance with the TÜV. And even the tiny LED-position-lights in the front of the vehicle is a result of the TÜV-approved implementation of the latest EU regulations.
