Scooters And One Wheels

The Aprilia eSR1 electrical scooter makes its official debut

In Noale, the wraps were pulled off the latest two-wheeler in the form of the Aprilia eSR1 today.

We first reported on this machine earlier this month and we had high hopes for the model, high hopes that were unfortunately dashed with the release of the official pictures.

The Aprilia eSR1 is indeed an electric micro-scooter. You know the way that it’s illegal to drive anywhere other than private land in the UK.

Okay, I’m trying to stay positive here. Let’s take a look at the technical details of the thing. It is powered by a 350W brushless motor powered by a removable 280Wh battery. This is a nice thing that is becoming more common with full size electric bikes and scooters as it allows for home or office charging. So the Aprilia’s electronics and performance seem to be pretty highly spec, as this model has a range of roughly 18 miles on a single charge, and that’s many laps in your yard.

The thing’s frame is made of magnesium alloy with chunky-looking 10-inch wheels on each end. It has a regenerative braking system in the engine – in the front wheel – and a cable-operated single disc in the rear.

There is no confirmation that the scooter will make it to the UK. We think this is highly unlikely due to the more prohibitive laws surrounding the machine we have here. On the continent, however, they are crazy about these things and are already performing at Aprilia dealers across Europe. They are also reported to be available for purchase in select electronics stores with an MSRP of € 659.

I would still have preferred an electric version of the SR125.
