Piaggio 1 heralds a new generation of e-scooter. Prepare to enjoy emission-free urban mobility and the quality, technology and safety features that are synonymous with Piaggio scooters, together with everything you would expect from a premium scooter. With its stylish design, refined chassis, great handling, ample charge and inimitable attention to detail, the one and only Piaggio 1 knows when to be quiet and when to let its performance do the talking.
We all have our own particular passion, but it is only when we live that passion and share it with others that it becomes something truly extraordinary. Piaggio 1 was designed to make getting about easier, sharing every trip and transforming it into a more spontaneous and sustainable mini adventure. Meet four members of our crew and get to know a little about their stories. ETT, Banana, Alex and Rocco are four original and diverse talents who share a passion not only for their art, but also for an emission-free lifestyle.
A special edition that combines the technology and sustainability of the Piaggio 1 with the modern, multidimensional style of Feng Chen Wang. The result of this fusion of excellence is an experimental-looking, surprising and innovative scooter. A totally unique look in its category, it is an unprecedented opportunity to ride an emission-free original work of art around town.
With the seat just 770 mm from the ground, the Piaggio 1 is comfortable for riders of any height, especially when stopping at lights or parking.
It takes just a few seconds to remove the battery, which comes with a handle so that you can easily carry it with you and recharge it at home, at work or wherever you find yourself.
The handlebar houses a large 55-inch colour LCD digital display featuring a twilight sensor that optimises the background and font colours for the prevailing light conditions to ensure it is always easy to read.
The battery is located in the underseat compartment, but this doesn’t come at the cost of functionality. The Piaggio 1 is the only e-scooter in its category with such generous storage capacity, with the underseat space able to hold a full jet helmet.
The design of the LED lights, positioned on the sides, echoes the streamlined, arched lines of the vehicle’s silhouette to create a lightweight, dynamic look, while the sleek rear also sports an LED cluster.
The Piaggio 1 comes in three combinations of battery and engine. The standard version delivers a top speed of 45 km/h, with a range of up to 55 in ECO mode and 43 km in Sport mode. The Piaggio 1+ model has a larger battery with a range of 100 km in ECO and 68 km in Sport mode, while the Piaggio 1 Active boasts a maximum speed of 60 km/h and a range of 85 km in ECO and 66 km in Sport mode.
Piaggio 1 is a user-friendly scooter in every sense, from the moment you turn it on. Its keyless mechanism means all you need is a handy remote, then simply use the MAP button on the right of the handlebar and select ECO or Sport mode. Designed with fuel savings in mind, ECO offers greater range, a top speed of 30 km/h and more progressive acceleration, whereas with Sport, you can enjoy the engine’s full grunt and a more powerful riding experience.
Recharging the Piaggio 1 is an absolute breeze. You can remove the battery in a matter of seconds and plug it into a power socket at home, in the office or wherever else you happen to be. The 1 version’s battery weighs just 10 kg and has a 1.4 kWh capacity, while the 1+ and 1 Active batteries have a 2.3 kWh capacity and weigh 15 kg. The batteries are maintenance-free, need no particular looking after and come supplied with a charger.
The 1 is powered by an electric hub motor, developed by Piaggio, which is built into the rear wheel hub, making for a clean, compact frame. The 1 and 1+ versions are fitted with an electric motor with a continuous power output of 1.2 kW, while the 1 Active model delivers 2kW. The combination of lightweight build, advance lithium ion battery and smart recharge during deceleration makes for excellent range across all three versions, with the 1+ delivering up to 100 km of riding on a single charge.
