I have three Vectrix. Have been commuting every day for 7
years on the original covering 52,000kms. Converted the
original 2007 to 40Ah Lithium in 2010. This
transformed the bike reducing its curb weight from 249kgs to
approx 185kgs and doubled its range. The bike handles,
accelerates and rides so much better than the original which
was way too heavy. Power to weight ratio now is perfect!

Have built a second 2008 VX-1 as a 70Ah. Significant mods to
the battery cover, bodywork and seat. Its heavy compared to
the 40Ah but delivers a reliable 140km range at highway

Magnificent pieces of machinery the Vectrix! Cant imagine
not having one...
