π2 Moto Gravity 150 Integrates Scooter and Sports Bike Elements
The competition in the motorcycle industry is becoming increasingly fierce with new products constantly launched. In such a severe and relatively sluggish market environment, the emergence of the new brand π2 Moto is an enlightening event. π2 Moto impresses with sci-fi elements. One of its new products, the “Gravity” 150cc water-cooled scooter is a novelty. To name it by product type, Gravity 150 should be a new type of sports scooter, as it combines sports bike and scooter elements. The whole vehicle adopts the quantum geometry design, with smooth body lines and a sporty stance.
As a new type of sports scooter, the G-shaped body layout of Gravity 150 brings greater overall rigidity of the body. With the 14-inch large diameter hub, the enhanced gyro effect improves the handling and performance at curves. The lower beam is a three-in-one layout, with diameter above 40mm.
The Gravity’s engine is a 150cc water-cooled four-valve engine independently developed by π2 Moto, with a maximum power of 12.2kW /8500rpm and a maximum torque of 14.7N.m /6500rpm. With pulse ignition technology, it features silent start and automatic start and stop. At the same time, thanks to its excellent center of gravity adjustment and special frame layout, the ultimate inclination of Gravity can reach 38 degrees.
The engine tuning is somewhat different from that of traditional scooters. Due to the positioning of a sports scooter and the characteristics of the four-valve engine, the power output is immense at middle and high revs. In addition to better safety, the Gravity has a 11L central sunken fuel tank, which not only optimizes the overall center of gravity of the body, but also reduces riders’ visit to gas stations.
The 770mm seat height is relatively friendly to most girls and beginners. The 142kg curb weight is not an advantage among scooters of the same level. The compact body and unique layout bring not only flexible handling and stable riding, but also good comfort and large space for the legs.
The 11L fuel tank and short tail design sacrifice the storage space compared with a traditional structure scooter. Is storage space so important for a scooter? It depends–if the user wants large storage space for practical use, the answer is yes. But the Gravity is a new species pursuing personality, thus sacrificing the space under the seat for handling and good appearance. It will be appealing to many young people. π2 Moto strives to create an extensive customer-oriented brand ecosystem.
The Gravity will come standard with a series of high-end configurations such as flameout on side support, pulse ignition, automatic start and stop, and keyless start. The high-profile version is also equipped with TFT instrument supporting navigation projection. In addition, the scooter is optional to install front and rear cameras. The water tank is designed with a flow guide port. The high-brightness lens headlight is designed with an LED light bar eyebrow, making the head look compact and sharp, cute but fierce.
In terms of safety configuration, it has front and rear disc brakes plus dual channel ABS as standard. The combination of inverted front shock and side-mounted rear single shock is rarely seen in scooters, but more common in race-aping bikes. The front and rear 14-inch light hubs bring better stability and passability.
To sum up, the Gravity150 is a unique crossover scooter, integrating the popular scooter and sports bike elements for the first time. For the current scooter market with increasingly serious homogeneous competition, some new blood like the Gravity150 is needed to provide diversified consumption choices.
