SOLIHULL, West Midlands 1st October 2021: From 1st October 2021, the UK Silence ‘e-moto’ scooter family offer even more choice, by welcoming the new ‘Urban’ model.
Meeting a demand from city-based riders and using the same patented and proven Silence lithium-ion battery tech, the Urban slots into a restructured Silence range designed to make choosing the right model even simpler.
The revised range offers buyers simple choices, with all-electric equivalents from a 50cc moped, to a 125cc motorbike.
For business, professional riders and fleets, there’s the S02 Business and S02 Business+. For private riders and commuters, there’s the S01 Connected and now, a new Urban choice, available in S01, or S02 trim.
Whichever you choose, you can be sure of performance, efficiency, and convenience, from the ‘click and go’ portable Silence battery system, which can be charged through any 240V socket and can reduce running costs to a penny per mile – a massive 80% less than ICE-powered scooters.
Silence UK said: “Our first six months on sale in the UK have made clear both the interest and the potential in all-electric, two-wheel travel. We’ve taken big steps with retail partners, opened our first flagship UK showroom and established attractive finance options for customers, with MotoNovo.
Now, we’re expanding our original offer and restructuring our range, creating a simple choice for both private and business customers.”
Prices start at £2,795 OTR for the S02 Urban, with the range-topping S01 Connected priced at £4,995 OTR*. The full Silence UK range from 1 October 2021, is:
