eSkootr conducts first group tests

LinkedIn +

The fledgling eSkootr electric series has undertaken its first group test, with riders from a host of sporting disciplines sampling the 100km/h scooters at the Adria track in Italy.

The series is positioning itself as an accessible form of motorsport, and is targeting a series of races in city center locations, with the intent of attracting a diverse fanbase beyond the traditional motorsport demographic.

The series’s S1-X machines feature a composite chassis built by YCOM in Italy, using Bcomp’s natural fiber composites for the exterior fairings, and are equipped with a pair of 6kW electric motors from Williams Advanced Engineering, one driving each wheel. A torque vectoring system is used to balance drive to the front and rear axles, and a 1.5kWh battery is sufficient to power the 35kg machines for short sprint races.
