BATTERY PACK

Čezeta battery pack uses the proven high performance Panasonic 18650 cells (same as Tesla) integrated with the Čezeta Battery Management System. The 506/01 features a 4kWh capacity pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 70 km-100 km.

Powerful Motor

With advanced computer modeling and analysis to provide optimum performance, Čezeta-tuned motors are arguably the world's most powerful accelerators, delivering torque up to 120 Nm. This is something around the performance of a 250cc motorcycle.

Upgradeable Battery

The Panasonic® battery pack is built by Čezeta and has been thoroughly tested to give dependable range performance that should retain 80% of capacity after 5 years. When the time comes to replace it, the 506 is designed to make upgrades a 10-minute job.

Refined Ride

The 506 uses the world's best power controller - the Sevcon GEN4. Through its industry-leading technology it delivers the highest power-to-weight ratio available and its advanced flux vector control improves traction and motor responsiveness.

Modern Security

A GSM/GPS App represents a user-friendly and simple control method through web or smartphone. It allows you to display the position of your 506 in real time, geofence zones and remotely immobilise if needed. If the 506 is being used for rentals, it also maintains a logbook for monitoring use.

Heritage Design

Through modern manufacturing techniques, we've adapted the Čezeta's iconic design whilst staying faithful to the charisma of its beautifully eccentric shape.

Vintage Instruments

The 506's instrumentation is simple and classic. Produced by UK manufacturer 'Smiths', the two bespoke gauges measure speed, trip and battery power and are in classic white decal, finished with chromed bezels.

Three Electric Scooters in One

Designed and manufactured by Čezeta, the SkillSwitch™ transforms the 506 into three motorcycles, each specifically tailored to suit riding ability. Beginners start on the gentle moped-like Level 3 and move up to the sports bike performance of Level 1 as their skills develop. There's even a reverse setting to make moving the Čezeta easy in all directions.

Infinitely Variable Recuperation

Another patented innovation by Čezeta, the Sway Throttle™ is the best way to precisely control a motorcycle. Roll it back as usual to accelerate - but also roll it forward to brake and precisely recuperate energy back to the battery. The swaying motion of your arm in use gave the inspiration for its name.

Ludicrous Braking

Developed especially to take advantage of the 506's unique leading link fork, the all-round hydraulic combined braking system (CBS) has outstanding stopping power - safely brake from 50km/h to zero in only 8 metres. If you know the nickname of Čezeta, you'll get the design of the caliper... oink!

Collector's plate

Every 506 is specially marked and numbered to ensure its provenience for collectors. With the 506 being rarer than other Čezeta models, it can be expected that it will appreciate in value over time.

Fast charging

Designed exclusively for automobile use, the 506's powerful 1.8kW on-board charger can add 42km per hour of charging. It works with every common household socket anywhere in the world. An optional adapter allows connection to 'Type 2' electric scooter charging stations.

Flexible storage

Čezeta's are famous for having lots of luggage options. There's a locked carpet-lined storage box under the seat, a rear rack/helmet lock, a front rack and case (which can carry up to 15kg) and a leather pouch behind the legshield. Leather bags, trailers and other accessories are available by special order.

"Believe me, this bike, which is
one of 30 I've had the chance to
test in the last year, is the one that
grabs the most attention. But it is
the type from love and affection, the kind
of attention that builds positive emotions."

Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten

All the parts in the photos below are Čezeta's own manufacturing. Taken together, 90% of the 506's parts are manufactured locally in the Czech Republic or Europe to ensure you receive the highest quality available.

Easy Maintenance

Unlike traditional petrol motorcycles, an electric one requires none of the oil changes, fuel filters, spark plugs or emission checks that are part of servicing - and even brakes are less worn through the Sway throttle. Instead, we recommend that you arrange an annual general inspection of your vehicle by a local mechanic to ensure the safety of your Čezeta. Please note that your warranty will not be affected if you choose not to arrange such inspections.

Recommended work is usually around an hour and concentrates on: tyre condition and alignment, brake check and brake fluid replacement, electrical system safety check, mechanical review of the frame and bearings, upgrades to your Čezeta's software and valet service.

We have a series of online videos to assist your mechanic in all the recommended tasks.

Local Service Partners

We will normally send a Čezeta mobile service engineer to service and maintain your Type 506 from the comfort of your own home, but in the rare event that we should not be able to come to you, then you may use one of our Čezeta Authorised Service Partners. Our aim is to expand this network of service locations to every country in Europe in the near future. If extensive work is required, we are happy to arrange transport of your Čezeta to/from our factory in the Czech Republic.

Questions & Answers

The most common enquiries are answered below.
If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sales

1. Where can I buy a Čezeta 506?

This website shows 506 for immediate reservation and a configurator for custom-build orders. Typical build time is 4 weeks and there is a waiting list of several months.

2. Where do you deliver to?

The 506 has EU homologation and is road legal in all EU countries and Switzerland. We can deliver to other countries, subject to some conditions regarding registration and after-sales service.

Warranty

3. What is the warranty?

The Type 506 is supplied with a Standard warranty of 2-years / 40,000 km (506/01 - 506/04), or an optional Extended warranty of 5-years / 80,000 km (4kWh) or 5-years / 100,000 km (6kWh and 8.5kWh).

Maintenance

4. What maintenance is required?

An electric motorcycle requires no oil changes, fuel filters, spark plugs or emission checks. Instead we offer an optional annual Maintenance Inspection of your vehicle with an Authorised Partner (where available) who will implement any available upgrades that improve your Čezeta.

Licence

5. What licence do I need?

The Type 506 is in European class "L3e-A1" (up to 11 kW power). It is possible to ride it with a car licence in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and several other European states. Other countries like Austria, France and the UK require a 1-day basic training course without test. Each country has its own conditions and if in doubt please contact your local driving authorities.

6. What about insurance?

In the EU, insurance is done in the same way as with any other vehicle, and available from all major providers. It is usually cheap, for example the current year insurance cost in the Czech Republic is the equivalent of €150 per year, depending on age and history.

7. Can I ride on the motorway?

Yes, with your A1 licence.

Cost

8. How much does it cost to run?

It costs €0.80 for 100km, about 1/10th of the cost of running a diesel car. It's probably the cheapest way to travel around apart from a bicycle.

Batteries

9. How do I charge the scooter?

Plug in the charging cable provided into the scooter's on-board charger and the other end into any standard 120-240V household socket. Charging is completely automatic, and will stop when charging is completed.

10. How long does it take to charge the battery pack?

It charges at a rate of 42 km per hour from a domestic 220-240v socket. Lower voltages will be proportionally slower.

11. How do I know when to charge the battery pack?

There is a meter in the instrument panel that reads just like a petrol gauge. If you are running low, a warning light will flash and we recommend you switch to the slowest mode.

12. Are the batteries safe?

The battery pack uses Panasonic 18650 Li-ion cells (the same cells as used by Tesla), proven safe and recyclable cells with long lifetimes when properly operated.

13. How big is the battery pack?

You have a choice of 4 kWh, 6 kWh or 8.5kWh.

14. What are the ranges of the battery packs?

Roughly speaking, the smallest 4kWh battery will give an AVERAGE of around 85km, the 6kWh gives 125km and the 8.5kWh about 170km. These figures are highly variable depending on the weight of the rider, terrain, temperature, wind and speed.

15. How long does the battery pack last?

If looked after correctly, tests indicate a peak life of 2000 cycles over 10 years, which is in the range of 200,000 - 300,000km depending on the size of the pack. During this time, its capacity (and range) falls by around 20%, but of course it remains useable in the bike or maybe recycled. The pack contains electronic management systems and is maintenance free.

Other

16. Does the Čezeta make any noise?

Practically nothing, there isn't even a drive belt to make noise, just the wind as you ride. For city use, use of the optional bluetooth speaker is useful to assist you alerting people to your presence.

17. Can I carry a passenger?

Yes, it's a limousine scooter with a long saddle and running boards so there is plenty of room for a passenger. Where the law allows, ladies and Scottish gents may sit comfortably sideways on the rear to preserve their modesty.
