- MV Agusta Ampelio Concept breaks cover
- Likely to be based on Kymco S7
- No word about production timeline
Italian manufacturer, MV Agusta has taken the wraps off its first electric scooter concept called the Ampelio. The e-scooter has been made in partnership with Kymco and is likely to be based on the latter’s S7 electric scooter.
If the Kymco S7 does end up serving as an underpinning, the Ampelio is expected to come with a 4.1kWh motor and a range of about 136km. The S7, with its underseat battery weighs in at a decent 121kg. And the MV Agusta Ampelio is likely to follow an identical spec sheet too. However, its styling is what will set it apart.
Known for making bikes that are the heartthrob of the bike world, MV Agusta has designed the Ampelio in a radical way. Interestingly though, the concept scooter draws inspiration from MV’s iconic scooters like the CGT and Ovunque. So, it gets a retro styled single headlamp mounted to clamps on the front fairing, straight bars and an angular rear section. Speaking of which, the rear seat is of the cantilever type, adding character to the design.
While the Italian manufacturer has been tight lipped about pretty much every detail, we can expect the Ampelio to sport riding modes, full-LED lighting, ABS, keyless ignition and the works. However, there is also no word about its production timeline. With MV Agusta jumping on the e-wave with its electric kick scooters and kid bikes, it won’t be long before the Ampelio goes into production. Late 2023, maybe?
