Removable battery with wheels, 100 km / h, 127 km range, 111 kg
A Spanish manufacturer in the electric scooter
Silence is a Spanish brand specializing in electric scooters. After entering the professional market in 2014 with the S02, the brand has developed its offer for individuals and launched its S01 electric model, now available in France.
Equivalent to a thermal 125, the Silence S01 scooter is propelled by a 7kW electric motor with a peak power of 9 kW and capable of achieving 0-50 km / h in 3.8 seconds. Designed above all for urban users, the scooter has a maximum speed limited to 100 km / h and will therefore allow peri-urban outings. It is accompanied by three City, Sport and ECO engine modes as well as reverse gear.
For more convenience, the S01 is equipped with a removable battery. If it includes a charger for immediate connection, it is also possible to remove the battery to charge it at home thanks to an ingenious handle and wheels that facilitate its transport. Note that sockets can also transform the battery into a mini generator to power electronic devices. This promises a range of 127 kilometers (WMTC L3e), or rather a significant range on the market for scooters of this type.
The removable battery is mounted on wheels for easy transport
The cycle part remains very classic with a front disc brake, a telescopic fork, a hydraulic shock absorber and rims of 15 “at the front and 14” at the rear. The Silence S01 also remains relatively compact with a wheelbase of 1,450 mm, but also light at 111 kg … without the battery.
The S01 promises a range of 127 km
Storage capacity is not left out since the trunk can accommodate two helmets thanks to the lower positioning of the battery. A notable fact knowing that many 125 scooters can only accommodate a single helmet under the saddle.
There is also a complete LCD meter with percentage of the battery used, use of power, autonomy, speed, partial double trip, a smartphone dock as well as LED lighting.
The scooter is equipped with 3 driving modes and a reverse gear
The Silence S01, on the other hand, is more expensive than some of its competitors with an announced price of 6,990 euros, ie the price of a Vespa Elettrica but with superior performance.
This price could drop in the future as the manufacturer considers leasing the battery. It will be joined this summer by the S02 Low Speed, a smaller model limited to 45 km / h and certified as a moped and announced at only 3,600 euros.
