Blacksmith B3 electric scooter promises a new design and 120km range

Blacksmith, the company specialized in the creation of upcoming models of electric scooters, has revealed its latest model, the B3. It is likely one of the most interesting electric scooters to be unveiled in a while.

As you can see in the picture below, the stunning brand new scooter has a unique dark look, and it seems like the Chennai, India-based electric motorcycle startup reinvented the electric scooter concept. The B3 looks different from the standard Vespa-style scooter design. The scooter will have a design similar to the company’s stunning B2 electric cruiser motorcycle unveiled earlier this summer.

The Blacksmith B3 electric scooter can travel 75 miles on a single charge and can reach the top speed of up to 120 km/h (75 mph). It also offers speed limiting, with the capability of being electronically limited to lower top speeds, which likely helps with regulatory hurdles in various countries. The scooter is powered by a 5 kW (6.7 hp) continuous electric motor rated for an actual peak power of 14.5 kW (19.4 hp).

Besides, it features a swappable battery (High Energy Density NMC battery pack with Intelligent Bluetooth BMS – patented), whose capacity hasn’t revealed yet. It takes four hours to get fully charged. The Blacksmith B3 electric scooter has a rated loading capacity of 200 kg (441 lb).

What’s more? The Blacksmith has also claimed that the electric scooter is rated to climb grades as high as 25 degrees. The B3 includes built-in GPS and traffic indicators on both of its sides. These type of sensors are rare on an electric scooter.

This ergonomically designed electric scooter comes with raised handlebars with weights, in the end, a prominent front fender, a LED projector headlight, alloy wheels, flat seat as well as a pillion seatback. Also, the included occupant sensor senses if a rider is seated on the vehicle or not. It works with the children’s seat belt, something that urges the rider to hold the child sitting behind him. The child can then be locked on the provided backrest (movable). This will ensure the highest safety and security of your family.

There are no words on its price or release dates yet, but the company is looking for launch in mid-2020.
