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.

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 'First-series' 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

We assist our owners in building simple 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 should generate 50km of range... all for free from the sun :)

Made in the Czech Republic

Our factory is in the Czech Republic, the heart of Europe's automotive industry. This means it is possible for us to have all our parts manufactured locally where we can strictly control the quality. We know we can't compete on price with mass-market bikes from Asia, but as they say... "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten".

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?

The home page lists the upcoming production of 506 for immediate reservation - or you may make a custom-build order from the configurator. Typically build and delivery can take 2-3 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

8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. How big is the battery pack?

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

13. 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.

14. 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

15. 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.

16. 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.
