A new model is the Silence S01 Urban. Built on the same frame as the S01 Connected but with a 5kw motor instead of 7kw. This bike is aimed at a person who is comfortable on a 50mph bike, requires the range and likes the storage space the S01 offers.
Due to its lower power, the maximum speed is 52mph (vs 62mph) but range is the same 85 miles maximum. This range is achieved through its 5.6kwh 51v 40KG battery that has a unique integrated trolley based system that slides out under the bike as its removed.
The battery would take between 6 to 8 hours to charge from flat and without it loaded, the bike weighs 111KG and is 2m in length. Due to its unique battery design, there is space under the seat for two full faced helmets eliminating the need in most cases for a Top Box (although one can be fitted if required).
The S01 Urban comes standard with a combined braking system (CBS) on its 15" front wheel and 14" rear where the brushless hub motor resides and comes with Pirelli tyres as standard.
It has 3 forward Driving modes plus a reverse gear:-
ECO: In Eco mode the S01 can still achieve 43mph.
CITY: The S01 is designed for getting around the City. It has limited speed of 52mph, giving the vehicle a good level of performance and consumption.
Other features include a USB port, side and cente stand and an app to track the bike and its routes. Optional Items include a large front screen and a rack for a top box,
It also has an app with features such as Find Your Scooter, Open the Seat, Check the status of your Battery, Turn on and off the bike
It benefits from the OZEV Grant providing 2 years of warranty on the bike and 3 years on the battery and all Silence bikes have 2 year AA Cover included as standard.
** Please NOTE this bike is only available in White **
