The New
Type 506
~ At a Glance ~

The Type 506 has been developed with the goal of adding clean technology to the iconic design appeal of Čezeta. Each is lovingly hand built and numbered to ensure it provides not only something to treasure but also a good investment for you.

 

200 km

BIGGER
BATTERIES

Always check the size of the battery, not the claimed range. We build Lithium-ion battery packs using cells from top manufacturers (Panasonic, Samsung, LG) in the sizes of 4-8kWh. That's up to three times bigger than an average electric scooter and means it delivers a realistic range that is far longer.

90 km/h

POWERFUL
MOTOR

The 506 accelerates rapidly using its powerful motor (up to 8kW) that delivers adequate power to navigate cities and suburban highways. With our tailor-made programming ensuring it is EASY to control, you'll have a lot of fun.

100+ YEARS

SUSTAINABLE
GUARANTEE

Being based in the Czech Republic means we have a large network of automotive suppliers who are able to manufacture 90% of the Type 506 locally in the tradition of Čezeta's legendary quality. Our aim is that your investment in high quality rewards you with a long lifetime of use.

MODELS

The 506 (second-series) is available in two variants. The 506/03 is in EU homologation class AM (equivalent to a 50cc moped) and is ideal for city use. The 506/04 is in EU homologation class A1 (equivalent to a 125cc scooter) and is better for longer distance travelling at higher speed. In many EU countries, a car driving licence is sufficient to ride either model.

BODY

Length: 200 cm / Wheelbase: 134 cm / Seat Height: 78 cm / Light height: 50 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 (506/03) / 153 kg (506/04).

ČEZETA-TUNED MOTOR

506/03 nominal 4kW / boost 6kW offers top speed of 45km/h (equivalent to a 50cc moped).
506/04 nominal 5.7kW / boost 8kW offers top speed of 90 km/h (equivalent to a 125cc scooter).

BATTERY PACK

Čezeta battery pack uses the proven high performance Lithium-ion cells (same as Tesla) integrated with the Čezeta Battery Management System. Both models feature a large 4kWh capacity pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 70 km-100 km. This can be upgraded to a larger 8kWh pack with a nominal voltage of 84V offering a typical range of 140 km-200 km.

Custom Motors

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

Like TESLA, we offer a Panasonic® battery pack 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 with something BETTER, UPGRADE IS 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.

HI-TECH 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.

STYLISH Design

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

BEAUTIFUL Instruments

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

THREE Scooters in One

The skill switch is THREE MOTORCYCLES, each tailored to suit your riding ability. Beginners can 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.

VARIABLE Recuperation

The Sway Throttle is the 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 right arm in use is a very natural evolution of throttle use.

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!

COLLECTIBLE Plate

Every 506 is specially marked FOR OUR 60TH ANNIVERSARY and numbered to ensure its provenience for collectors. With the TYPE 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 IN THE WORLD. An optional adapter allows connection to 'Type 2' electric scooter charging stations.

BOUNTIFUL 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.

Maintenance

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 506/03 is in European class "L3e-AM" (like 50cc) and the 506/04 is in class "L3e-A1" (like 125cc). It is possible to ride A1 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 €17 per year, depending on age and history.

7. Can I ride on the motorway?

Yes, the 506/04 has an A1 licence and is fast enough to use legally on motorways.

Cost

8. How much does it cost to run?

It costs €0.80 for 100km. It's about 10% of the cost of running a diesel car and 50% less than an electric car. It's definitely the cheapest way to travel around quickly.

Batteries

9. How do I charge the scooter?

Plug in the charging cable into the scooter's charger and the other end into any standard 120-240V household socket. Charging is completely automatic using custom electronic systems that will optimise the lifetime of the battery.

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

It charges at a rate of 1.8kW from a domestic 220-240v socket. Lower US 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. Electronics prevent over discharge.

12. Are the batteries safe?

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

13. How big is the battery pack?

You have a choice of 4 kWh or 8kWh.

14. What are the ranges of the battery packs?

Roughly speaking, the smallest 4kWh battery will give an AVERAGE of around 85km and the 8kWh about 170km. These figures are highly variable depending on the weight of the riding style, rider weight, 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, a bluetooth speaker is useful to assist you alerting people to your presence. It can be charged from the USB.

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.
