Chinese automaker Zeeho, which is owned by CFMoto, has launched the AE8 scooter in its home country. This bike is offered in two versions: standard and S+.
In terms of excellence, this two-wheeled vehicle has a futuristic appearance and offers adaptive headlights and an LCD instrument cluster. The bike runs on an electric powertrain and promises a range of up to 190 km on a single charge.
This maxi-style electric scooter is also expected to enter India next year. The bike will flaunt the CFMoto emblem and will significantly increase competition in the electric two-wheeler segment there.
The Zeeho AE8 features a front apron that houses the headlights, flat footrests, “winglets” on the side panels that function as turn signals, one-piece seats, arrow-shaped mirrors and pillion grip rails. There is also a storage compartment under the seat.
The scooter features adaptive headlights, a 5.0-inch colored TFT instrument cluster with support for OTA updates, anti-theft alarm and sporty alloy wheels.
The Zeeho AE8 features a center-mounted, liquid-cooled motor connected to an interchangeable battery. This setup produces an output of 16.7 hp/218 Nm. The scooter can go from 0-50km/h in 2.6 seconds, reaches a top speed of 100km/h, and provides a range of up to 190km per charge.
To ensure rider safety, the Zeeho AE8 is equipped with disc brakes on the front and rear wheels, along with dual channel ABS, riding assist, and three driving modes: Sports, Eco and Street for better handling on the road.
Suspension duties on this scooter are handled by telescopic forks at the front and adjustable shock absorbers at the rear.
In China, the standard version of the Zeeho AE8 electric scooter is priced at CNY 17,999 while the S+ variant is priced at CNY 21,699.
