The World's Most Desirable Scooter
The goal of Čezeta is to build the world's most desirable scooter, and the new Type 506 achieves this by combining its classic iconic style with cutting-edge electric motorcycle technologies to give performance that is amongst the best in the world.
A giant 6kWh Panasonic® Lithium battery pack gives a TUV-certified range among the best in the world for an electric scooter. A powerful on-board universal charger (110V-240V) allows fast-charging from any household socket. All operations are protected by Čezeta's computer systems for maximum convenience and safety.
The 11kW hub motor delivers the torque of a sports bike making the 506 amongst the fastest scooters in the world. The unique 'sway' throttle, profile selector and outstanding braking systems ensure the ride is perfectly blended into one seamless confidence-inspiring experience.
Built The Čezeta Way
Designed, manufactured and assembled according to Čezeta's legendary reputation for quality. Completed using the best European components from companies such as Sevcon, Rizoma and Beringer.
Class A1 (equivalent to a 125cc scooter), can be ridden without taking full motorcycle licence depending on local laws.
Length: 200 cm / Wheelbase: 134 cm / Seat Height: 78 cm / Light height: 15 cm/ Seat length: Big to have space to carry your lover. Wheels: 130/90-13/ Weight without battery: 115 kg/ Weight with battery: 137 kg (506/01) / 147 kg (506/02)
506/01 nominal 5.7kW / boost 8kW offers acceleration 0-50 km/h in 4.5 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 2.7 seconds and top speed of 120 km/h (equivalent to a 250cc scooter).
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 80 km -100 km. The 506/02 features the 50% larger 6kWh pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 120 km -150 km.
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 adapts to a composite bodyshell and frame and 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.
Designed and manufactured by Čezeta, the Powergrip™ is handlebar mounted and provides a choice of three motor profiles that regulate power, acting like digital gears. There is no complication with changing power, switching is simply a matter of rotating the grip. There's even a reverse gear to make moving the Čezeta easy in all directions.
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 - that's significantly more effective than an average motorcycle.
Čezeta currently builds 15 Type 506 per month, each marked with this special 60th Anniversary plate during the series run. The collector's plate is a recognition of their historic value as one of Europe's first electric motorcycles.
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.
Famous for its car-like storage, the Type 506 has lots of storage options. There's a locked carpet-lined storage box accessible under the seat, a front rack (which can carry up to 15kg) and a leather wine bottle holder behind the legshield.
This is Sustainability
Čezeta are expensive for a simple reason.... we are building motorbikes to last a lifetime. Our factory is in the Czech Republic, not in Asia, and we pay health care and pensions for our workers, ensure they are paid a living wage and train young people in high tehcnology. This is the sustainable way to do business.
