Lightweight, sporty design, long range – the Fantic electric scooter wants to score with these attributes when it makes it from concept to series production in 2023.
Fantic does not only enter the e-mobility business with this electric scooter concept. With the Issimo, the Italian manufacturer already has a two-wheeled e-vehicle on offer. Which, by the way, was awarded the German Design Award 2021. But the Issimo has pedals, which is why our interest in him is limited. Not to mention the Fantic TX 2 electric scooter
45 km / h version and 80 km / h version
Fantic has announced an electric scooter for 2023, which we consider worth mentioning for motorradonline.de. Fantic will have the scooter homologated in a 50 and a 125 version. Big differences in performance are not to be expected, since the electric motor only has 4 HP.
While the L3e version (50 series) will be limited to 45 km / h, the e-scooter in the L1e (125 series) class should not drive faster than 80 km / h. If you weren’t aware of it beforehand, you can now guess at the latest that the Fantic electric scooter is designed for city and commuter traffic.
Less than 100 kilos, with a range of 100 km
The range given for the 125 version is 100 kilometers with 4.4 kWh. The 50 version comes with a 2.2 kWh battery. The Fantic e-scooter should weigh less than 100 kilos – the manufacturer specifies 75 kilos for the vehicle plus 12 kilos for the battery, which brings us to 87 kilos for the smaller version. Since the battery of the 125 version is likely to be twice as heavy, the L1e scooter would then come to a total weight of 99 kilos.
The design of the Fantic electric scooter is in keeping with the low weight: The chassis consists of an aluminum frame that looks like a tubular space frame and is presented in a gaudy central position on the leg shield. Fantic combines it with 16-inch wheels (90/80 tires front and 100/80 rear), which are equipped with disc brakes (220 mm front and 180 mm rear) and CBS. Hydraulic shock absorbers are mounted at the rear (100 mm travel at the front and 85 mm at the rear).
Optional accessories and matching app
Fantic also plans to include an app that will allow the scooter to be connected via smartphone. In addition, there should be a whole range of accessories to choose from, such as high windshields, leg deflectors, leg covers, tail bags and side pockets.
The aim is to bring the model into series production from 2023. In terms of pricing, the manufacturer has so far only stated that it is aiming for a competitive price.
The Fantic electric scooter looks like it could break through in the middle if it is subjected to too high loads, but since the Italian manufacturer has enough experience in two-wheel construction, we assume that this concern is unfounded. At a competitive price, the Fantic could definitely stir up the range of lightweight electric scooters.
