  • Honda EV-Neo Starts Leasing

    Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced that it will start lease sales of the EV-neo electric scooter on Friday, December 24, 2010.

    The EV-neo is an electric scooter developed for businesses such as transport of heavy goods or delivery services and which delivers a clean and quiet ride without compromising powerfulness. The vehicle qualifies as a first-class motor-driven cycle in Japan, for engine displacements of 50cc or less.

    Honda plans to deliver about 100 monitoring vehicles between December 2010 and March 2011 to cooperating businesses in the monitoring program*1 for collecting riding data and other useful information and to start lease sales of the EV-neo to general businesses and individual business owners in April 2011. The wide range of data collected from actual business use together with the data obtained from test operations*2 of 10 prototype vehicles, conducted since October 2010, is expected to be used in future development of electric scooters and motorcycles.

    On top of the excellent environmental performance offering a clean and quiet ride worthy of an electric scooter with zero CO2 emissions while riding, the EV-neo leverages a motor that, even with cargo loaded, generates high torque even in the low-speed range to achieve a powerful starting and hill-climbing performance. An in-house manufactured motor and a lithium-ion battery that apply Insight technology have been adopted, and an exclusively developed quick charger enabling full recharge in 30 minutes in a 25°C environment allows charging to be conducted at convenient intervals during the working day. The EV-neo has been developed as a complete electric scooter that can be used in a wide variety of business situations. A body design, which features a wide and flat loading space that enables easy loading, and a flat floor that makes it easy to get on and off the vehicle, ensures ease of use in delivery services and other business situations. The EV-neo PRO, which is based on the EV-neo and will be put on sale simultaneously, adds a large rear carrier that is convenient for delivery of newspapers and other items, and a standard-equipment bracket that can further enhance load capacity by attaching a basket in front.



    By offering products with outstanding environmental performance to more customers, Honda is committed to advancing its contribution to reducing CO2 emissions on a global scale.

    *1, 2: The monitoring of the EV-neo and test operations of its prototype vehicles have been adopted as technology development projects for global warming countermeasures for FY 2011 by Japan's Ministry of Environment (MOE).

    Main features
    A power unit that is clean and quiet, yet powerful
    The newly developed power unit boasts outstanding environmental performance. The combination of a Honda-made brushless motor and a lithium-ion battery emits absolutely no CO2 from riding the vehicle and produces a quiet running sound worthy of an electric vehicle - a valuable asset for early-morning deliveries or circulating around residential neighborhoods. Generating a powerful torque in the low-speed range, the power unit allows the scooter to be started uphill on a 12-degree grade while loaded with 30 kg of cargo.

    A sturdy battery system suitable for business use
    The achievement of 34 km vehicle range per charge (measured at a constant speed of 30 km/h on a level road) enables use for such business purposes as door-to-door deliveries or circulating around a residential area. The EV-neo uses the new SCiB™ lithium-ion battery from Toshiba Corporation which is well-suited for repeated charging and discharging and for quick charging, and also delivers stable performance at extremely low temperatures. In addition, the EV-neo's newly developed battery cooling system uses a specially equipped cooling fan that makes the scooter ready for use in all four seasons.

    Choose among two different chargers according to work pattern
    The quick charger, designed exclusively for the EV-neo and using a 200-volt power source, provides full charging from empty in about 30 minutes under 25°C conditions, making it possible to recharge the vehicle quickly during spare moments in the working day. The portable regular charger can be stored under the seat and provides 100% charging from empty in about 3.5 hours at 25°C.

    A body intended for delivery services and similar business uses
    Cargo totaling 30 kg (the maximum statutory loading capacity for 50cc-or-under first-class motor-driven cycles in Japan), composed of 5 kg in the front,*5 5 kg in the luggage space under the seat, and 20 kg on the rear deck, can be loaded onto the body. A low-center-of-gravity design that places the major weight of the battery under the floor, combined with the 12-inch tires, provide enhanced riding stability with loaded cargo. Securing a 50-degree handlebar turning angle to the right and the left, the vehicle is easy to maneuver in alleys through its sharp turning capability. The EV-neo scooter uses Honda's unique Combined Brake System (CBS) to ensure stable braking performance even with a full load of cargo. The center stand and standard side stand come enclosed in rubber to reduce the noise made by kicking up the stand, thus helping to ensure quietness even when deliveries require frequent parking stops.
    *5: When the front basket or similar accessory is attached


    Advanced equipment for greater user-friendliness
    - Digital meter with excellent visibility displays mileage, remaining battery power, and an in-progress indicator for charging.
    - Automatic energy-saving system ensures that power is shut off when the rider is away from the vehicle for a specified time with the main switch on.
    - Charging connector, newly developed exclusively for the EV-neo, pays extra attention to durability and the ease of plugging in and pulling out the charger.

    Other features
    - Body color available in Los White.
    - Optional audible pedestrian alert system*6 to warn pedestrians of an approaching vehicle when riding at 28 km/h or lower.

    *6:

    In accordance with the guidelines concerning quietness of hybrids and other vehicles, issued by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan, a warning must be sounded to alert pedestrians and others nearby of an approaching vehicle. However, this does not relieve the rider of the obligation to pay sufficient attention to the traffic situation.

    Words by Piaggio Press 

    Easy on the eye

    The Gilera Fuoco’s innovative looks get its rider noticed. The front end of the Gilera Fuoco 500 ie is attention grabbing: its decisive, uncompromising shape expresses strength and character and hints at the incredible performance of the 492 cc single cylinder engine. The two-wheel front end is marked by a steel tube bumper with metal mesh inserts that give the vehicle a rugged look.

    The front design protects the rider and mechanical parts while putting the unique front suspension technology on display. Other wicked touches are the sleek ‘naked’ metal handlebar and black ten-spoke wheels. The five-lamp headlight unit is not only striking to look at but highly effective as well; the two biggest lamps are equipped with off-road-style impact guards. The front fairing and front shield fairing offer remarkable aerodynamic protection. There is a wide, comfortable footplate behind the front shield fairing.

    The tail design is stark and minimalist, a mix of plastics and metal tubes that picks up on the styling of the front end. The tail incorporates a versatile rear rack, and the wide, comfortable seat ensures total comfort for both rider and passenger thanks to its ergonomic design and negligible height difference between the two parts of the seat.


    A Thrilling Ride

    But there’s more than design to the personality of the Gilera Fuoco. The latest product from the two-ring brand boasts top engine performance, ideally backed up by revolutionary running gear to provide astonishing ride quality. The Gilera Fuoco 500 ie streaks away from traffic lights and takes all kinds of terrain in its stride, handling twisty mountain roads and long motorway rides in all safety whatever the weather conditions thanks to its two front wheels commanded by an extraordinary parallelogram front suspension. This revolutionary technical set-up ensures impeccable road holding in all riding conditions, with stability and braking power that no conventional scooter can provide.


    Technology

    The steel tube frame conceals the powerful, reliable Master 500 ie double ignition engine, a 4 valve, 4 stroke unit with electronic injection and liquid cooling. The capacity of the Master engine has been upped to 492 cc to obtain maximum power of 40 hp at 7,250 rpm and maximum torque of over 42 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The introduction of the twin spark system has also made it possible to optimise combustion inside the cylinder, with a reduction in noise and gas emissions. The result is a smooth, high-performance engine, very torquey at low and medium range rpm, that takes the Gilera Fuoco 500 ie to a top speed of nearly 145 km/h while fully respecting Euro 3 norms thanks to the advanced closed loop injection circuit with a Lambda sensor and three-way catalytic converter in the exhaust pipe.

    The engine’s exuberance is skilfully managed by the sophisticated running gear. The innovative parallelogram front suspension’s tilt mechanism is composed of four cast aluminium arms, with four hinges fixed to the central tube and two guide tubes on either side of the parallelogram, connected to the arms via suspension pins and ball bearings. This means that the Gilera Fuoco is as easy to ride as a traditional scooter, while its incredible stability, especially when cornering and braking, comes from its two front wheels.

    Standard equipment includes an electro-hydraulic front suspension locking system that keeps the Fuoco 500 ie upright without a central stand. This makes it extremely easy to park anywhere. What’s more, there’s no need to put your feet on the ground to keep your balance when stopped at a traffic light.

    Optimal rear end stability is guaranteed by a 14” rear wheel with a generous 140/70 tyre, while three 240 mm disk brakes with dual-piston callipers ensure fast, efficient braking.

  • Sachs X-Road 250

     

    Sachs Bikes Australia release new learner legal commuter, the X-Road.

    Sachs Bikes Australia

     

    Sachs Bikes, the German motorcycle and scooter manufacturer, have recently launched their new learner legal commuter motorcycle the 250cc X-Road.

    The much anticipated release took place at the recent Australian Motorcycle Expo held in Melbourne, drawing much acclaim from the assembled press, dealers and general public.

    Sachs Bikes representative Josh Carter was overwhelmed with the attention the X-Road has received.

    “The response to this new learner legal model has been tremendous” he stated.

    The striking X-Road design builds on the imposing reputation Sachs Bikes has for leading edge vehicle design.

    “The Sachs Bikes design offices in Germany have been responsible for some remarkable vehicle designs which have developed cult followings.

    “We have no doubts the Sachs X-Road will follow in the foot steps of the ever popular Sachs Madass and develop its own following” said Carter.

    Having been sold in Europe for a number of years, Carter is suitably confident the X-Road will more than stand up to the challenges of every day commuting.

    “The X-Road has been on European roads for quite some time and has developed an enviable reputation as a motorcycle which delivers exceptional reliability and responsive performance.

    “When you start to note down some of the key specifications like front and rear disc brakes, electronic speedometer display and air cooled over head cam 250cc engine its easy to see why the X-Road has that reputation” he said.

    It’s that same feature set that gives Carter confidence the X-Road will significantly impact the leaner market.

    “The Sachs X-Road fits perfectly into the LAMS framework and will appeal for those looking for their first bike.

    “With key safety features, enough power and an affordable price point, just $3790 plus on roads, the X-Road will make the perfect leaner bike for those looking to start out in style” said Carter.

    The X-Road has already hit the showroom floors of Sachs dealers around Australia. For more information on the Sachs X-Road or any of the other products in the Sachs Bikes range please visit www.sachsbikes.com.au
