Electric Type 506
Power. Balance. Control.
The world's finest handmade electric scooter represents the ultimate combination of performance and luxury, with class-leading performance offering instant torque, long range, superb handling and unrivalled control. The final 506 package offers greater performance than average, together with an improved list of standard features.
Rarer than a Rolls Royce, only 50 of these special scooters will be handbuilt annually ensuring their rarity and investment value. Like other models in the Čezeta series, the 506 may appreciate in value and the early model numbers become collector's items.
Up to 200 km
Giant Panasonic® Lithium battery packs available from 4kWh to 8.5kWh, giving a range up to 200km - best in the world for an electric scooter! A powerful 1.8kW on-board charger (110V-240V) allows fast-charging from any household socket. All protected by Čezeta's own tailor-made computer systems for maximum convenience and safety.
The 11kW hub motor delivers the torque of a sports bike making the 506 one of the world's sportiest electric scooters. 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 in the Czech Republic according to Čezeta's legendary reputation for outstanding quality and 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: 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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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".
