As a follow up to yesterday’s post, we wanted to take you on a video journey of the Smart eScooter being built. It’s pretty amazing to see everything come together.
Maxi-scooters are becoming more and more stylish and they provide consumers with an economic way to travel. One scooter which caight our eye a while ago was the Honda Integra. Details on this scooter were recently revealed and we like what we saw. The dual-clutch Integra claims to offer a 76mpg fuel consumption and reduced service costs. Tank rage is at about 250 miles.
The Integra is the first of a three-model line-up to feature the new SOHC 670cc parallel twin engine with dual-clutch transmission similar to the one used on the VFR 1200 FD. One clutch handles 1st, 3rd and 5th gears, while the other handles 2nd, 4th and 6th. The Integra also features 3 drive modes and can be fully automatic or manual. Both modes can be combined to allow the driver easier overtakes.
The Integra’s mission is to provide the driver with a motorcycle feel and the practicality of a large capacity scooter. Below are some more specs on the Integra:
Engine: Liquid-cooled 670cc (73mm x 80mm) four-stroke 8-valve, SOHC parallel-twin. PGM-Fl electronic fuel injection. Six-speed transmission. Chain final drive.
Power/Torque: 52 bhp / 46.1 ftlb
Fuel Capacity: 14.1 liters.
Fuel Consumption: 76.3 mpg (WMTC in D-Mode)
Chassis: Diamon; steel pipe frame. Front 41mm telescopic forks, 120mm travel. Single rear shock, 120mm travel.
Rake/Trail: 27 degrees / 110mm
Seat Height: 790mm
Kerb Weight: 238kg (F: 49.8%; R: 50.2%)
Tire Size: Front: 120/70-ZR17M/C (58W). Rear: 160/60-ZR17 M/C (69W)
Brakes: 320mm single wavy front disc with 3-piston caliper. 240mm wavy rear disc with single-piston caliper. ABS/CBS as standard.
Let’s cut to the chase. We want this. We want it bad. And we’re betting you do too.
When we heard BPG Motors was finally accepting pre-orders on their new UNO III Electric Scooter, we just had to share the news. This adaptable little guy actually morphs from a tri-wheeler to a “standing” dicycle; best of all, the magic switch can happen while in motion, if desired. (Insert Homer Simpson-inspired drool here.)
