When you hear the name “Buggati”, there’s no doubt that the first thing that pops into mind is unbelievably fast luxury hypercars. However, the French firm has partnered with U.S.-based company Bytech, revealing its first-ever electrified scooter. 

Scooter

Bugatti says the “high-quality” and “revolutionary” electric scooter is a “work of art” that was created and engineered to deliver a “new wave” of mobility in the transit revolution. The “state-of-the-art” scooter boasts an aerodynamic design and a “high-end” appearance. The scooter sports a “sleek” and functional folding design. 

It’s also lightweight, the Molsheim-based manufacturer says. The electrified scooter weighs “only” 16 kg, thanks to its magnesium alloy frame. And it has a weight capacity of 110 kg.

Bugatti says the scooter is equipped with “cutting-edge” technologies to ensure driver protection. These include “unique” lighting functions such as fore and aft turn signals. The former is sited on the “ergonomic” handle grips, with the latter sitting above the rear mudguard. In addition, the scooter features illuminated base plates on the side of the decks and projects an “EB” monogram “for enhanced artistry”.

A dual-braking system, comprising a front left-hand brake lever and rear E-ABS electronic brake, has been added for enhanced security. Cruise control is included. There’s also a safety bell. The wheels, wrapped in run-flat tyres, measure 9.0 inches. 

A LED screen displays the speedometer, odometer, speed mode and battery life. Speaking of the battery, Buggati and Bytech’s scooter is equipped with a 36 V lithium-ion item coupled with an electric motor with a maximum power of 600 watts. The battery provides a range of between 32 km and 40 km. The top speed is rated at 30 km/h when in Sport mode. Economy and City modes allow a top speed of 14 km/h and 20 km/h. 

The Buggati scooter is priced at $919.99. At the current exchange rate, that amounts to R14 646.98.
