The company says the batteries can be fully recharged through any standard household power socket within three to five hours. The charging socket is located at the front of the scooter underneath a hinged smart emblem. Smart's two-wheel study is driven by a disc-shaped wheel hub motor in the rear wheel, which offers an output of 4 kW (equal to 5.3-horsepower), allowing the scooter to reach a top speed of 45 km/h.
Technical highlights include the use of an anti-lock braking system (ABS) specially adapted for a two-wheeler, an airbag integrated in the paneling under the handlebars, and Blind Spot Assist which draws the rider's attention to vehicles following close behind but are not visible in the blind spot of the rear-view mirrors. Another cool feature is the Smartphone that is placed in the centre of the handlebars. It replaces the traditional instrument panel and provides information on speed, range, battery charge level and even acts as a navigation system.
