New Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec: first 45 km/h multi-track vehicle according to new EU specifications
Fast pedelecs with pedal support up to 45 km/h are increasingly becoming a separate vehicle class. HP Velotechnik presents the completely revised Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec for the first time at the Eurobike trade fair (8 - 10 July). It is the first 45-km/h e-trike approved in Europe in the L2e-P class. The "three-wheeled motor vehicle for passenger transport" (German Federal Motor Transport Authority) can be seen at the recumbent bicycle factory stand in the Foyer East (FO-106).
In addition to the most striking feature, the WingBling trike indicator, which has been available from HP Velotechnik since the beginning of 2018, there are several innovations available in the new Scorpion class. The oil level indicator for coupled brakes, which was specified by the EU for the L2e-P segment, is unique in the bicycle sector. For the first time, the manufactory also installs a lighting system and horn with the special "E" marking, which is also necessary for fast electric trikes today. Another regulation: the built-in immobiliser – a rather easy task for a bicycle manufacturer thanks to the frame lock.
HP Velotechnik has used the extensive revision of the Scorpion to make additionally lasting improvements to the drive system, to do so they worked together with engine supplier GO SwissDrive. The new CAN bus system is characterised by an even smoother driving behaviour, i.e. the pedal support feels even more natural. The "Boost" function enables maximum power for an extremely fast start at the push of a button. The system recuperates with up to 200 W and the new Li-Ion battery has higher capacity: 636 Wh means an increase of 14 percent. The system also provides the driver with shift recommendations via the display.
For the S-Pedelec and all other Scorpion models, the large-surface frame tubes were designed in the new Flash design. Lighter and darker applications add dynamic accents to the basic colour. The bike is available in specialist shops and costs 8,990 Euro in the basic version. For further information, please visit www.hpvelotechnik.com or call 0 61 92 - 97 99 20.
At a glance: Facts about new S-Pedelec Scorpion fs 26
HP Velotechnik presents the completely revised Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec, a fully suspended electric tricycle with a speed of up to 45 km/h, which can be folded compactly for transport.
The model combines the safety of a multi-track vehicle with chassis technology from the automotive industry. The single wheel suspension with adjustable McPherson struts on the front axle and the stabiliser system as well as the spring-loaded rear wheel and the long wheelbase ensure safe road holding even in fast turns. The S-Pedelec is equipped with four brakes.
The low centre of gravity of the touring trike and the good support of the rider in the ergonomic recumbent seat, optionally as a body-contoured seat or net seat, enable dynamic acceleration. The low air resistance due to the efficient recumbent position extends the battery range, especially at high speeds. This effect is further enhanced by the use of the Streamer, the aerodynamic weather protection (see photos page 1).
With the new Flash design being presented on a Scorpion for the first time at the Eurobike, HP Velotechnik completes the most elaborate brand relaunch of its history – a new company logo and new brandings for all 15 models in its anniversary year (25 years of recumbent manufacture).
With the new Flash design, the Hessians use the typical large-surface frames of their recumbents specifically for playing with colour accents. The basic colour is joined by a lighter and a darker shade as well as black appliqués. The sharply contoured curves nestle into the structures of the large-area frames and elegantly reflect the driving dynamics of the recumbents.
