Ordered an electric 'motorcycle', err... scooter - 07.16.2012, 04:54 PM

hey guys, long time no see. i've been busy with home-ownership stuff and haven't had much of a chance to play with toys...until i saw this:

100% brushless electric (rear hub), max mph: 30 mph, distance per charge: 40 miles.

it has a 48-volt, 80-amp SLUNCE battery pack that provides up to 2,000 charges, with a charge time of 2.5-4.5 hours.

here are more specs - anyone have experience with one of these? at a price of $1250, i had to order one. my head is reeling with ways to mod it - but i'm not familiar with that controller (interesting that it's a USB controller)
• Frame Type—Maxi-Scooter
• Frame Material—Steel Alloy Wheelbase of 64"
• Rear Suspension—Adjustable Tension Coil-Over Shocks
• Fork—1-3/8" Single Crown Scooter Fork
• Total Weight—386 Pounds
• Cargo Capacity Max—295 Pounds
• Motor Type—High Output Sealed Permanent Magnet Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) Rear Hub Motor
• Peak Power—1.5 kW at 4500 RPM
• Peak Continuous Current—60 Amps
• Torque—200nm at 0-1050 RPM
• Controller—60-Volt, 150-Amp USB Programmable Kelly Controller
• Charger—60-Volt, 20-Amp Charger that Plugs into a Standard 110-Volt Outlet
• Tires—Kuna® Cross Street Tread, 130/60-10

i think this is their source for the hub motors and controllers: http://kellycontroller.com/brushless...tors-c-62.html

i can't find anything on the 'slunce batteries', other than the solar-powered company www.slunce.us.com

Yeah, when I went on vacation to Niagara Falls last time, they had these things for rent so you could drive around the vineyards and sample the wine.

It was a lot of fun and they really will surprise you when you get on them. Good speed and great battery life. They would not really work around where I live because they would not go fast enough but as long as you stay to the side of the road, you should be fine. Since it is electric, you don't need to register or insure them or anything.

My vote is yes!

i know it's not the most 'manly' thing to drive, but i'll use it for my commute to work and back (i live only 3.5 miles from where i work). that'll definitely soak up some savings in gas - $60-$70 every other week from my gas-guzzling premium-drinking Z.

this is what i wanted, but the wife said no. someday...

i can't speak for hashemio, but here in MI any vehicle that does 30 mph or less doesn't need to be titled and doesn't need insurance. i have to go to the DMV (sec of state) and get an $18 permit, which includes a sticker to put on the back of the scooter.

this is their website, and info on the metro 2. they also have a metro which is basically the same thing, but goes up to 60 mph...and an electric car.

i got a groupon deal where it's half off the metro 2. i don't know if this groupon works in your area, though.

I can't find anything on SLUNCE batteries, maybe it's an acronym?

i'll find more out about the batteries when they contact me to get payment for shipping. (memory, how long it can sit without a charge, etc.) it looks like Kelly includes a charger in their kit, but i can't find anywhere on kelly's site about what batteries it charges.

edit: ahh, here we go:
http://kellycontroller.com/f4815-48v...ger-p-105.html
Quote:
The charger can be used on Lithium battery, lead-acid liquid battery (may add liquid to the battery periodically) and maintenace-free battery. When place an order online, please make a comment on your battery type. If it is a lithium battery, please provide its parameters.
Dimensions: 230mm(L)*135mm(W)*70mm(H)
Input voltage: AC 110V 50/60Hz
Max output current: 15A
Battery voltage: 48V
It is only for fixed voltage. 48V charger is only for 48V batteries.
