ELECTRIC TYPE 506

Created to be the world's finest electric scooter, the new Čezeta is a statement of innovation, craft and the brand's iconic motorcycle artistry.

What makes Čezeta different?

Power. Balance. Control.

The electric Type 506 represents the ultimate combination of scooter performance and luxury with class-leading specifications offering instant torque, long range, superb handling and unrivalled control. Taken together, the result is simply a joy to ride and own.
Only 50 of these beautiful bikes are available annually, each lovingly handcrafted as masterpieces of Czech engineering. Like other Čezeta models, this rarity guarantees not only lots of attention for their owners but also their status as highly-collectable investments.

Type 506 Details

200 km

Long Range

Giant Panasonic® Lithium battery packs available from 4kWh to 8.5kWh, giving a range up to 200km - the best in the world for an electric scooter. All protected by Čezeta's own tailor-made computer systems for maximum convenience and safety.

120 km/h

Highway Speed

The 11kW hub motor delivers the torque of a sports bike making the 506 one of the few electric scooters that are fast enough to use on highways. The unique Sway throttle, Skillswitch and outstanding braking systems ensure this high speed is perfectly blended into one seamless confidence-inspiring experience.

100+ yrs

Long Lifetime

The 506 is designed and manufactured locally in the Czech Republic according to Čezeta's legendary reputation for outstanding quality, and completed using premium European components from companies such as Sevcon, Rizoma and Beringer. Our goal is for it to last a lifetime.

EU HOMOLOGATION

Class A1 (equivalent to a 125cc scooter), can be ridden without taking full motorcycle licence depending on local laws.

BODY

Length: 200 cm / Wheelbase: 134 cm / Seat Height: 78 cm / Light height: 15 cm/ Seat length: 70cm. Big to have space to carry your lover. Wheels: 110/90 (F) and 130/90 (R) -R13/ Weight without battery: 115 kg/ Weight with battery: 137 kg (506/01) / 147 kg (506/02 and /03) / 155kg (506/04).

ČEZETA-TUNED MOTOR

506/01 nominal 5.7kW / boost 8kW offers acceleration 0-50 km/h in 5.5 seconds and top speed of 85km/h (equivalent to a 125cc scooter). 506/02 nominal 9.2kW / boost 11kW offers acceleration 0-50 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and top speed of 120 km/h (equivalent to a 250cc scooter). The bigger battery versions /03 and /04 offer slightly reduced versions of these figures.

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. The 506/02 and 506/03 feature the 50% larger 6kWh pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 100 km-150 km. The 506/04 features a 8.5kWh pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 140 km-200 km.

Powerful Drive Unit

All Čezeta's use 3-phase brushless hub motors to give as much space as possible for the batteries. With advanced computer modeling and analysis to provide optimum performance, they are arguably the world's most powerful accelerators, delivering torque of 120 Nm.

Reliable battery pack

The Panasonic® battery pack is built locally in the Czech Republic 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 them, the 506 is designed to make future upgrades a 10-minute job.

Lightweight construction

The Čezeta's flowing contours originated with the aerodynamics of the 1950s as a testament to the 'space age' aesthetics of the time. The new Type 506 evolves this into a composite bodyshell and steel galvanised frame. Despite being big, the whole scooter weighs only 137kg.

Supremely appointed dials

The 506's instrumentation is simple and classic. Produced by legendary UK manufacturer 'Smiths' and reminiscent of the original 1950s Čezeta dials, the two bespoke gauges measure speed, trip and battery power and are in classic white decal, finished with chromed bezels.

SkillSwitch™

Designed and manufactured by Čezeta, the SkillSwitch™ transforms the 506 into three motorcycles, each specifically tailored to suit riding ability. Beginners can start on the gentle moped-like Level 3 and move up to the top level sports bike performance of Level 1 as their skills develop. There is no complication with changing performance levels, switching is simply a matter of rotating the grip. There's even a reverse gear to make moving the Čezeta easy in all directions.

Sway Throttle™

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

Custom-made brake system

Developed especially to take advantage of the Type 506's leading-links fork and rear hub motor, the all-round hydraulic braking system has outstanding stopping power. You can safely brake from 50km/h to zero in approx 8 metres - significantly more effective than an average motorcycle. And you might notice something cute about the design of the caliper... oink!

Collector's plate

Each is numbered with this special plate as a recognition of their historic value in Čezeta's history, being our first electric motorcycle.

High-power charger

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' charging stations and our advanced electronic controls ensure its optimal charging of our battery pack.

Flexible storage

The Type 506 has lots of storage 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 wine bottle holder behind the legshield. Leather bags, trailers and other accessories are available by special order.

Travel Free for Life?

Čezeta assist owners in building simple home solar chargers. A typical setup (like the one in the photograph below) uses 4 solar panels to generate up to 320Wh. Over an average day, it can generate 50km of range. Free for you, and fossil-free for the world.

Quality Has its Price

Čezeta's factory is in the Czech Republic, the heart of Europe's automotive industry. This means it is possible to have all parts manufactured locally where the quality is strictly controlled to deliver the masterpiece of engineering that owners can cherish for many years. Compromising on quality to offer a lower price is not option because as the Czechs say... "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten".
