Inspired from an era when Steve McQueen was jumping fences to escape a POW camp, the Scrambler S was designed to inspire riders to get out of their comfort zone and explore, and represents an enthusiastic nod to the ingenuity and creativity that prompted off-road motorcycle racing, as well as a glimpse into the future of electric power.
The heart of the Scrambler S is its massively powerful lithium battery, enclosed in VE’s signature aluminum battery box: The 1,123-watt/hour unit is unrivaled in the electric bike market, and can provide power with range up to 75 miles on a full charge (in Street mode). Paired with a thumb-activated throttle and five levels of pedal assist, it’s mild when you need it, and wild when you want it; either way its custom-tuned, hub-mounted motor can power your adventure at speeds of up to 36 MPH (in optional race mode; for use on private property only).
“As a transportation company, Vintage Electric builds bikes that inspire riders and adventures, and our new Scrambler S is just waiting for the next adventure,” says Scott Brown, CEO of Vintage Electric. “Our typical consumer is often most interested in premium-quality products, has a passion for fun, and likes to arrive in style. Using a Vintage Electric bike for one’s transportation becomes a way of life, and with the ability of the new Scrambler S is a serious lifestyle choice for even the most adventures riders.”
Though it borrows design cues from some of the most prestigious, collector-worthy motorcycles in the world, the Scrambler S is no garage queen – it excels on pavement and thrives where the dirt and gravel start. Components like the robust dual-crown, inverted suspension fork and rugged Schwalbe knobby tires combine to provide excellent traction and the ability to smooth over any terrain. Powerful hydraulic-disc brakes keep things under control, while the regenerative rear brake simultaneously returns power to the battery. The rugged, hydroformed aluminum frame is dressed in intimidating matte black, and a mesh-protected, rally-ready yellow LED headlamp announces its formidable presence.
“Let’s not beat around the bush;” adds Brown. “the Vintage Electric Scrambler S is a wolf in wolf’s clothing. It looks like it can go like hell … and it goes as fast as it looks! It is our most capable bike and holds a special place in the Vintage Electric lineup.”
