The perfect match
Electric drive and recumbent cycle like made for each other!
Would you like to extend the action radius of your recumbent cycle?
Smile as you climb the local hills with a trailer? Or how about a quick
and relaxed ride into work? Choose one of our e-drives: just pedal and
let the powerful motor, depending upon which model, give you up to 3x
more drive power. It is easy to choose since our systems are some of
the lightest on the market.
Especially notable: that perfect cycle-riding-feeling
does not change with the motor. Due to the HP Velotechnik
programming there is no stuttering, no noise, and no delicate throttle.
The e-drive is very safe: the support only starts when pedaled. The quiet
support begins as soon as you start to pedal and subtly and electronically
ends as the bike or trike reaches 25 km/h (15 mph, USA 32 km/h resp. 20 mph).
(Higher supported speeds can be reached with our
Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec).
This pre-programmed maximum speed allows your E-Scorpion in
Europe to be a Pedelec (Pedal Electric Cycle) and can be ridden in the most
EU countries without registration, helmet, or license plate. Once over 25
km/h (15 mph), the trike or bike rides basically like a normal Scorpion.
The low weight of the vehicle allows a normal riding experience
even if the battery is empty. When climbing, our trikes play out another advantage
in that they hold their spur even at a slower pace. While stopping at a
traffic light, there is no need to put your foot down!
You have the choice between two different drive systems to give
your ride an extra punch: either the solid, dependable, and silent
rear wheel drive GO SwissDrive
or the boom-mounted Shimano STEPS
with the innovative, automatic shifting, internal geared hub.
Both power units have their own characteristics – just like
you! That allows us to give to you the best possible solution for your
needs. Both systems allow for a lower center of gravity,
a low battery placement under the seat, and as an
option, a Top-View display position above the end of the
handlebar. You keep everything in view and arrive comfortably
at your destination, regardless if you left the
traffic jam in the city behind you, or are heavily loaded
Note: Please consult your dealer for your local legal requirements. The maximum allowed speed may be different.
