With gas prices now reaching all time highs recently, more and more people may consider trying to find some alternative means of going from one place to another. Electric bikes become more appealing this time around. And for those who like to become more comfortable making those daily commutes to the city, the Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec electric trike may be a good choice.
The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec from HP Velotechnik is an electric and pedal powered trike that is designed with technology borrowed from the automotive sector. It features a reverse design with the two wheels in front instead of the usual one front wheel. It is probably the first full-suspension electric tricycle and features a chassis technology borrowed from the automotive sector which provides riders a higher level of comfort especially on bumpy roads.
The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec comes with an electric motor that allows it to achieve speeds for up to 45 kmh or 28 mph. Its power is provided by a 48-volt Li-Mn rechargeable battery with a 423Wh capacity. It also comes with hydraulic disc brakes, ergonomically designed recumbent seat as well as a folding design that allows users to easily store it in any available space in the home or office conveniently. The Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec electric trike is expected to be available sometime early next year at a suggested price of 6,990 Euros or around US$ 7,495. It is almost priced similar to a used car. But its advantage is that it only needs a five to six hours worth of charge and no worries about having to fill it up with expensive gas in order to run.
