Technical specifications

Equipped with cruise control

The ES1 is equipped with a convenient cruise control function. This allows you to set the desired speed and drive smoothly with the traffic. This function can be controlled via the LED display as well as via the smartphone app.

The front brake system is electric and equipped with an anti-lock system. If you want to park the e-step, you can do so using the side stand. In addition, the e-step can be locked manually or via the app.
