Source: website Horwin Europe | HORWIN EK3 electric scooter has been selected to receive the Red Dot Design Award 2021 in the product design category. The laureates are celebrated at the Red Dot Gala award ceremony in June 2021 in Essen (Germany). The award-winning designs are presented in the Red Dot Design Museums, in the online presentation and in the Red Dot Design Yearbook.
EK3 electric scooter
EK3 has a standard version or the deluxe version. Both variants have the same basic construction and only differ visually in terms of their equipment specs. The deluxe version comes with a metallic finish and is fitted with a brown leather seat.
The EK3 was developed in line with the latest safety standards and is equipped with numerous high-tech systems. A CBS braking system, LED lights, a light switch-off delay function, keyless go, a touch-start display, cruise control, reverse gear, an anti-theft alarm system and breakdown-proof tyres: all of this comes standard with this low-maintenance bike.
The center motor developed by HORWIN generates 6.2 kW at a speed of 95 km/h. The EK3 accelerates to 60 km/h in six seconds and full torque is obtained as soon as the throttle control is operated.
The automatic daytime running lamp DRL lights up with an intensive white LED light. This improved lighting system enhances safety – especially on rainy and foggy days. An automatic switch-off delay function when the lights are turned off illuminates the way to the garage or front door before you dismount.
The EK3 electric scooter is fitted with 2 lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which can be easily removed. The SOC monitoring system and the modern battery management system are capable of preventing malfunctions. The charging time for a battery pack is about 4 hours.
The CBS (Combined Braking System) distributes the braking force between the front and rear brake disks. This means that if you have to brake in an emergency, the braking distance is reduced, thus ensuring safe braking at high speeds. This braking sensitivity makes for extremely precise handling when approaching and navigating curves and if the road surface is wet.
The vacuum tyres fitted to the EK3 boast outstanding adherence to the road surface. They are breakdownproof, wear-resistant and have a longer life than ordinary tyres. A perfect combination of safety and comfort.
The engineers at HORWIN properly interpreted the meaning of the familiar words ‘bigger is better’. This is why they opted for a spacious footboard and a wider and longer seat.
The distance between the height of the seat and the footboard has also been kept as large as possible, to avoid bending the rider’s legs too much. The ergonomic design and optimised sitting position make your ride more relaxed and comfortable.
