Aprilia recently took the wraps off the eSR1 electric scooter and it is not one would have expected. Instead of an electric version of a scooter from Aprilia's SR range, it turned out to be a lightweight electric machine that is primarily meant for short distance urban commutes. And yes! It does look like it will be a hoot to ride. The eSR1 is actually manufactured by a company called MT Distribution, a company specialising in making scooters and it already manufactures scooters for Ducati and Lamborghini.
The Aprilia eSR1 gets a 350 watt brushless DC motor along with 280 watt hour battery which is removable and can be charged via a wall charger. The scooter has a range of 30 km on a single charge. The scooter rides on 10-inch wheels with tubeless tyres. The funky looking scooter gets an electric brake up front and a disc brake at the rear. Other features include a 3.5 inch LCD screen on the handlebar and LED lights up front and at the rear. The scooter is built on a Magnesium Alloy frame which is lightweight and foldable as well.
