Electric vehicle manufacturer Scorpio Electric has unveiled Singapore’s very first electric motorcycle, the X1.

According to the company, X1 sports an ergonomic design using clean lines with a built-in LED headlight and taillight and is “engineered for a new generation of lifestyle riders”. 

The vehicle, which can charge up to 90 per cent in less than three hours, also comes with its software that users can access using a mobile app. Some of the app’s key features include keyless entry, anti-theft alerts, and smart navigation – for example, alerting riders about dangerous routes, or those with high incident occurrence.

Users can also use the app to get real-time information about their bike, such as battery status and expected range, as well as receive notifications about safety and weather conditions on their trip.

The Scorpio X1’s network of sensors also allows the bike to collect real-time data and do AI-assisted predictive analysis for increased efficiency.

Like electric cars, electric motorcycles offer several advantages over conventional vehicles as they’re designed to go easier on the environment and reduce carbon footprint. Electric vehicles use electricity instead of gasoline and do not exhaust harmful emissions like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and benzene. 

“We are one step closer to sharing our vision with our riders – a future of electric mobility once inconceivable,” said Joshua Goh, Deputy CEO of Scorpio Electric.

According to the company, the X1 retails at US$9800 and is available for pre-order worldwide at a deposit of $1000 via Scorpio Electric’s website. Annual production will be limited and prices are indicative only, excluding taxes or other expenses. Delivery is expected from late next year.

Scorpio Electric is part of EuroSports Technologies, a subsidiary of Singapore-based EuroSports Global, which holds the Lamborghini and Alfa Romeo dealership franchises.
