Silence S01 and S02:
The Silence S01 and S02 models are 125cc equivalents and therefore are in the L3e-A1 category for motorcycles. These can be ridden by any person over 17 years of age, with a provisional licence and having completed their CBT (compulsory basic training). Even with a full driving licence the CBT must be completed.
Silence S02 LS (low speed) and LS Long Range:
The Silence S02 LS models are a 50cc equivalent and sit in the L1e category. These can be ridden by any person over 16 years of age, with a provisional licence and having completed their CBT.
For those of us who are a little older and passed our driving test before 1st February 2001, then officially we do not need to complete the CBT to ride a 50cc equivalent bike. However, the one-day course is extremely useful, and we would always recommend anyone new to powered two-wheelers to sign up and do the training.

Good news, electric motorcycles are exempt from vehicle tax. But, like all vehicles, they must be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and display number plates.
Every vehicle in the UK over three years old needs an MOT test and motorcycles are no exception. This will cover all the standard tests for a motorcycle.
Riding a Silence electric e-moto scooter is a brilliant experience that puts a smile on the face of everyone who rides one, even die-hard bikers! Electric power delivers instant power so our S01 and S02 models can move from 0-30mph in only 3.9 seconds. And with the lower centre of gravity they feel really planted on the road. Take a test ride and experience the Silence smile.
We estimate daily running costs are slashed by 80% and maintenance costs by 30%. That’s a huge saving compared to traditional alternatives. You can probably cover a mile for less that £0.01 so you can travel 100 miles for only £1.
The Silence batteries are tried and tested and have been shown to still retain 97% capacity after 1,000 charge cycles. See here for the proof.
Our batteries come with a three-year manufacturers’ warranty, so peace of mind is guaranteed.
We generally don’t think anyone will run their batteries down to zero. However, in the rare case that this happens our 2kWh batteries take 3-4 hours from empty and the 5.6kWh batteries take 6-8 hours.
Charging a Silence e-moto scooter could not be easier. Silence batteries use a UK 3-pin plug and be charged from any standard 240v socket. You can either charge the battery in situ in the scooter, or use Silence’s innovative ‘click and go’ trolley system to remove from the scooter and simply wheel it to wherever there is a plug – your home, a coffee shop or a friend’s kitchen.
There is a comprehensive three-year manufacturers’ warranty on Silence batteries and two- years on our e-moto scooters.
The choice of electric two-wheeled products is growing all the time, and the names people use have got very intertwined and a little confusing. The Silence e-moto scooters might be called mopeds by some, scooters, motorbikes or even electric bikes by others.
We call our Silence range ‘e-moto scooters’. Why? Because they are fully electric, have a simple twist and go operation with an easy to ride modern ‘step-through’ design. They are the equivalent of both 50cc and 125cc powered two-wheelers but are cleaner, smarter and more useful than the traditional alternatives. And they only cost around £0.01p per mile to run!
Silence was established in Barcelona in 2012 by bike and race engineering experts and enthusiasts with the passion to transform commuting in urban areas. Silence has now become Europe’s biggest specialist EV manufacturer producing 10,000 scooters a year and selling in 25 countries. We design, engineer and manufacture in Spain and we only make electric scooters – we are, and want to remain, the absolute best in what we do and what we create for our customers and our communities.
