The Silence S01 electric scooter has been designed for commuting and personal use. It runs on a 5.6kWh battery and features a 7 kW (9 kW peak power) motor. The scooter has three forward driving modes – City, Sport and Eco – and a reverse gear, and has a range of up to 127 km, depending on the selected driving mode and external factors such as the weight it carries and the weather conditions. It accelerates from 0-50 km/h in 3,9 seconds and has a top speed of 100 km/h.
The Silence S01 electric scooter was voted as the best electric scooter on the market by ADAC – Germany’s distinguished automobile organisation – in a comparative study featuring five electric scooters which can be operated with a European Category-B licence (equivalent to South Africa’s Code A motorcycle license).
