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.
HIGH VOLTAGE INTELLIGENT
HORWIN EK1 is equipped with a 72V high voltage intelligent lithium battery. With 26Ah volume, the max range reaches 70km (Standard Range). With 40Ah volume, the max range reaches 120km (Extended Range).
It‘s also optional with two removable batteries available for charging simultaneously. The SOC monitoring system and modern battery management system BMS can effectively reduce failures and provide multiple protection.
INTELLIGENT THREE LENSES LED HEADLIGHT
The headlamps are fitted with three LED lamps. Their bright and white light allows them to literally cut through the darkness. An automatic switch-off delay function when the lights are turned off illuminates the way to the garage or front door before you dismount.
DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT
The automatic daytime running light DRL enhances safety – especially on rainy and foggy days.
HAZARD WARNING SYSTEM
ONE KEY FOR REVERSING
The R key can easily help you move the vehicle with reversing power.
NO MORE BREAKDOWNS
NO MORE BREAKDOWNS
The vacuum tyres fitted to the EK1 boast outstanding adherence to the road surface. They are breakdown-proof, wear-resistant and have a longer life than ordinary tyres. A perfect combination of safety and comfort.
The high-strength light-metal wheel hubs are made of aluminium alloy. They give the front and rear wheels outstanding stability and resilience but are nevertheless relatively lightweight.
COMFORTABLE DRIVING – REGARDLESS OF THE ROAD
The EK1 scooter is fitted with twin hydraulic shock absorbers at the front and rear. They offer the rider an outstanding riding experience – regardless of the road conditions.
The large storage compartment under the seat can easily hold your daily necessities, such as helmets and backpacks. That solves your problems at your daily trips.

EK1 AND ITS TWIN EK1 Light
The EK1 has a twin – the EK1 Light. The difference lies solely in the maximum speed. During the EK1 up to max. 45 km/h is throttled, the max. speed at the EK1 Light to max. 25 km/h is screwed down even more. This means that this smart everyday companion is available for every target audience!
VEHICLES WITH DIFFERENT BATTERIES
To make the pleasure of choosing perfect, the EK1 and the EK1 Light are each offered with two differently strong batteries, which affects the range. In the Standard Range (26 Ah) the EK1 reaches up to 70 km, in the Extended Range (40 Ah) it is even 120 km. The EK1 Light reaches up to 80 respectively 140 km.
