Fonzarelli X1 - 13 kW motor!

Sydney-based Fonzarelli electric scooters have unveiled their Fonz X1 scooter at the Sydney motorcycle expo.

Apparently it's got a 13 kW hub motor, top speed of 100 km/h and a range of 150 km.

They also have their regular Fonz scooters which run a 72 volt Li-ion battery and a ~4 kW hub motor.

That sounds a bit more like 125cc power than their current bike. Probably good for freeway commuting in the morning grid lock but still a bit short when there is no traffic.

Sounds pretty good.
Most of the generic brand hub motors are sub 5kW.

There are no regs on power for an electric scooter it's only an imposed speed limit.
So unless it's limited to 60kph (depending on state) it can't be classed as a scooter.
So it would be registered as a motorbike and you would need a motorbike license to ride it.

10 years later than a Vectrix.
I guess something had to fill the void.

Matt might have better info but the Vectrix had a similar top speed but had a peak of 20kW (50% more power).
I'd be surprised if the battery weight had that much difference.

More likely battery power, or the lack of it, from the original Vectrix pack.
Yes, this would be registered as a motorcycle, but only an RE class (LAMS approved).

The 60kph limit is for mopeds. Scooters can be any power or speed, but are licensed the same as motorbikes. Aprillia make an 850cc one.
I beliive the current Fonzarelli 125 is over the speed limit and requires a license already.

I wonder what capacity the battery is

I'm always leary when manufacturers quote range, more so on bikes.
The range at 40kmh is irrelevant, its the one at 100kmh that matters

having said that, now that we're able to fit 16kwh in a bike, even 200km range is possible

My ICE bike only has a range of 200. It does recharge quickly though.
