Valentino Rossi form Moto3 team

VR46 Moto3 team

Starting with 2014, Rossi will contribute towards a project which will focus on propelling the careers of young riders on international circuits. This comes after a deal was struck between Sky and VR46, the company owned by the nine-time World Champion.

The team, of which Sky will be the principal sponsor, will race with KTM machinery and has already forwarded an official entry application to MotoGP™ governing body the FIM and commercial rights holder Dorna Sports in order to participate in the Moto3™ class.

For the debut season, the new two rider squad is expected to field two competitive KTM Moto3 machines, and with all probability Romano Fenati will be at the helm of one of the bikes while Rossi’s step brother Luca Marini could be riding the second, if he doesn’t decide to continue to ride in the CEV to gain more experience, with a couple of programmed wildcard appearances in Moto3.

Suzuki e-let's

Suzuki e-let's

The e-Let's has been developed as an electric scooter which realizes low noise, low vibration, and zero-emission environmental performance. Its aim was to familiarize a practical electric scooter which a user of an engine scooter can switch to without any hesitation.
Based on the Let’s4 Basket, a 50cm3 scooter favored for its user-friendliness, the e-Let’s has combined a high-performance in-wheel motor with regenerative braking capability and a lithium-ion battery. In addition to a typical smooth acceleration and nimble performance of an electric scooter, it realized a curb weight*2 that is 2kg less than that of the Let’s4 Basket.

Honda Ev-neo

Honda Ev-neo

The EV-neo is a battery electric scooter. It operates using a 2.8kw motor and a Lithium-ion battery. The EV-neo has a range of 34km at 30km/h on level ground* The regular charger takes the battery from zero charge to a full charge in approximately 3.5 hours** and is a highly portable unit that fits neatly in the cargo space beneath the seat of the EV-neo. The rapid charger fully charges the EV-neo in approximately 30 minutes

Smart Electric Scooter

Smart Electric Scooter

To rehash the features of the silent plug-in runabout, a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack stored down low behind your feet supplies juice to a 4-kW (i.e. 5.4 horsepower) wheel-hub electric motor at the rear wheel. Top speed is listed at 45 km/h or 28 mph – a choice by Smart that allows the scooter to be driven on streets in many countries before one has a driver's license.


Vertrix VT-1

The VT-1 plugs into standard 220V/110V outlets via a 10-foot braided cord residing under the seat. Charging times are three hours from zero to 80% while zero-to-full charging times range from four to six hours depending on batter configuration. Instead of a belt or chain the VT-1 is propelled by its Planetary Gear Drive system which is a 3-to-1 reduction gear drive.

Yogo Electric Scooter

The 1.5kW motor is run by a 30A controller unit which is powered by a fully detachable 20A 52V LiFePO4 battery that weighs 11kg and fits neatly under the seat, and a spare battery can be carried easily on the scooter. econogo says that 100cc and under petrol engines account for 45 percent of the 140,000 powered two-wheelers sold each year in the UK, so it is targeting a healthy market.

Volkswagen E-Scooter

Volkswagen E-Scooter

The E-Scooter has a range of almost 40 km (24.8 miles) and a maximum top speed of 48 km/h (30 mph). The moped is powered by a nickel-metal-hydride battery so small and light that you can remove it from the vehicle and recharge it in your house.
