Zapp EV unveils limited edition i300 Carbon Launch Edition electric motorcycle
Priced from £7,995, the bike will be limited to 1,000 units
Zapp EV, a start-up headquartered in London, has revealed a limited run version of its i300 electric motorcycle, dubbed the Carbon Launch Edition
Just 1,000 units will be made, and each one can be bought via Zapp's new website, which features a high-definition 3D configurator for personalisation.
Costing £7,995, its features include a carbon fibre fender, diamond cut wheels, a red rear spring, and a commemorative plaque with the founder's signature.
The i300 uses an internal permanent magnet electric motor that generates 19bhp and 587 Nm of torque, enough to accelerate the bike from 0 to 30 mph in 2.2 seconds, and to 60
mph, its top speed, in 4.8 seconds.
It is powered by two portable battery packs each weighing 6kg, and can be replenished from 20 to 80 percent in less than 40 minutes via a standard home power supply.
While the capacity of the batteries has not been disclosed by Zapp EV, the firm claims that when combined, they provide a range of 37 miles.
As well as the Carbon Launch Edition, there's also a cheaper Ocean model which comes in at £4,796. This model features recycled plastic sourced from the ocean, hence the name, while the i300 Bio, which uses natural composites for its bodywork is priced at £5,596. Also costing £5,596 is the Carbon model, which instead uses carbon composites for its bodywork.
