JUMP: Technique and Style

JUMP is a small motorcycle weighing just 90 kg and measuring 1,830 mm in length. The most important aesthetic feature. Which also fulfils a fundamental technical function, is the high-tensile steel tube frame, whose design follows the motto ‘form follows a process.

The vehicle’s appearance is completed by bodywork that performs a dual function, looking appealing and providing protection and safety.

The 12″ wheels with generous-sized tyres give JUMP good proportions.And set it apart from similar electric vehicles for urban use. Despite its compact size, Jump is also suitable for taller riders.

The suspensions use an upside-down fork. And a swinging fork with a single hydraulic shock absorber featuring a pro-link system. Ø220 mm disc brakes on both wheels.

The lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 2808 Wh, weighs 20 kg. Runs at 72 V, and recharges at 84 V DC from a 100-240 V AC battery charger (connected to a domestic socket).

The electric current requirement is 10 A, compatible with domestic energy supplies. Charging time is 4-5 hours.
