Freshly revealed by a California-based startup Juiced Bikes, the Juiced Scorpion promises up to 120 kilometers (75 miles) of adventures on a single charge. The bike is an impressive looking electric moped and comes with even more impressive looking specs.
The result of a partnership between Juiced Bikes, Onyx electric mopeds, and Bird’s new Cruiser electric moped, the new Scorpion electric moped could soon become the next two-wheel electric fashion on California roads.
The Juiced Scorpion is powered by a 750-watt electric motor integrated into the rear wheel, allowing up to 28 mph (45 km/h) of maximum speed. Removable and placed on the diagonal of the frame, the 52V battery offers 1 kWh of energy and is rated for up to 75 mi (121 km) of range.
Mounted on large fat tires, the Juiced Scorpion electric moped features both front and rear suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, an elongated moped-style seat, and a large LED headlight. It also comes equipped with an advanced matrix LCD display that allows the driver to keep an eye on the speed and the battery charge level in real-time.
What’s more? The e-bike even gives you a 7 speed rear cassette, in case if you want to pedal this mini-motorbike. Weighing in at 59 lb (23.4 kg), the e-bike can carry riders up to 275 lb (125 kg).
The bike really looks very promising when considered the look and specs. Electric moped-style bikes are becoming quite popular. We recently have seen the new RadRunner e-bike which is also the moped-style electric bike.
This very nicely spec’d electric mini-bike will start at an ultra-low $1,299 price. And pre-orders for the Juiced Scorpion will begin on September 24th, when Juiced opens an Indiegogo page for the bike. You can visit the company’s website for more details and to pre-order your electric moped.
