COLOURS

MOPED WITH UPBEAT COLOURS

The two eye-catchers are largely identical in appearance and dimensions. The big differences: While the EK3 has a center engine, the EK1 is equipped with a wheel hub engine. The max. power is 2.8 kW, which classifies it in the vehicle category L1e. This also makes it clear why the EK1 is considered to be the small brother of the EK3 (6.2 kW/ L3e).

With the upbeat colours orange and medium blue as well as matt black and white, the moped or motorbike also appeals to a younger audience. Highlights of the EK1 equipment: all-round LED lights, automatic light switch-off delay, cruise control, reverse gear, helmet storage compartment under the seat and ergonomic design.
