2021 8TEV B12 Classic & B12 Roam electric scooters launch in UK – pre-order yours exclusively from Pure ElectricSeptember 30th 2020
Utilising the same sturdy-yet-stylish frame design, the B12s are distinctive thanks mainly to their hard-wearing carbon-reinforced maple decks, single-sided fork and dual piston Tektro hydraulic disc brakes that produce outstanding braking power.
Pitched towards the premium end of the market, the B12 can reach a 35km/h (21.7mph) top speed via its 250W motor, with large 12-inch air-filled magnesium wheels – complete with high-grade Japanese sealed bearings – giving outstanding ride comfort and control over lumps and bumps, as well as low rolling resistance.
The frame utilises “aircraft grade” Chromoly as its main material, with high quality 6061-T6 aluminium alloy material used for the folding mechanism, in the ergonomic handlebar and within the stem. That gives the B12 a very sturdy and durable finish, and in combination with the maple deck, a premium finish few (if any) rivals can match.
The B12 e-scooters are rated waterproof for use in rainy and wet conditions, and come with integrated mudguards and powerful LED lights for visibility in low light.
At time of publication, the B12 is available to pre-order in its B12 Classic and B12 Roam forms, retailing for £1,400 and £1,600 respectively, where the difference between the two lies in the battery capacity.
The Classic comes built with a Panasonic 465Wh battery unit, delivering up to 32km (20mi) range, while the Roam comes specified with a 624Wh battery capacity, which can produce a claimed 42km (26mi) of range on a full charge.
