Italjet Electric Dragster Wows at EICMA

Italjet presents the final version of the DRAGSTER # e01 Electric at EICMA

The Italjet Dragster has always brought jaw-dropping looks to the small-bore scene — with electric power, it finally has the torque to back up its looks!

The brand’s first-ever electric scooter, the Dragster #e01 Electric ships with a 6000W continuous-power motor capable of short bursts of 12 kW (!) of peak power. With the gearing built into the wheel/tire dimensions, that’s good for a claimed 265 lb-ft of torque (!!) at the rear wheel.

For context, that’s a little more than 5x the peak torque of a middleweight sport bike like the Honda CBR600RR. (!!!)

The electric Italjet ships with an ISS adjustable shock absorber up front, along with a second ISS adjustable shock in the rear. Brembo brakes front and rear are standard, with a single 200 mm disc up front disc and a 190 mm brake disc in the rear. Wheels are a 12″ front, 13″ rear setup, wrapped in Pirelli rubber from the factory.

And, while the wheelbase is a long-ish (for a Vespa-style scooter) 1,350 mm, seat height is a low (for a proper motorcycle) 770 mm. Weight is right around330 pounds, which isn’t bad for an electric vehicle (as ever: batteries are heavy).

Pricing has yet to be revealed, but we bet it won’t be cheap! Take a look at the few images we got from EICMA, below, then let us know what you think of the #e01 in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
