2013 Vectrix VX-1 Li Electric Scooter Shows Up in Germany [Video]
The Vectrix VX-1 Li and Li+ scooters come witha twist on the top-notch parts side, as they're loaded with components one usually expects to see in expensive machines: Marzocchi forks and Sachs adjustable rear shocks, and Brembo disc brakes for both front and rear wheels.
Now, it's more than obvious that we're dealing with high-end machinery, and the price tags are howing this: $11,995 (€9,380) for the Li and $13,995 (€10,945) for the Li+. The difference comes from the battery packs, like the "+" indicates: the Li comes with a LiFeP04 30Ah 3.7 kWh battery, while the Li+ shows a 42 Ah, 5.4 kWh one.
Translating the batteries' energy in range on a charge, the Li offers 40-60 miles (64-96 km), while the bigger version will coiver 55 to 85 miles (88-136 km), depending on the riding speed. Both machines come twith a top speed of 68 mph (110 km/h) and can accelerate from nil to 50 mlh (80 km/h) in about 6 seconds.
Given the easy recharging using casual 110V/ 200V outlets, the Vectrix VX-1 Li/Li+ can be fully recharged pretty much anywhere during 3-4 or 4-6 hours, respectively. The Li and Li+ are available in White, Black and Silver.
