Performance: Inmotion catches up with its competitors
We have to admit that up until now, Inmotion e-wheels were seriously outmatched in terms of performance by its KingSong and Gotway competitors. With the Inmotion V12, the manufacturer is catching up and providing us with one of the most powerful Ewheels currently on the market.
The InMotion V12 is designed to :
- Satisfy the appetite of speed lovers with its HS (High Speed) version, which can reach a maximum speed of 70 km/h**.
- Match the needs of those looking for a maneuverable electric unicycle and enhanced climbing ability with its HT (High Torque) version. The V12 HT has a very high torque and can climb slopes up to 45°.
The V12 HS and HT are equipped with a 2500W (nominal) motor powered by a 100V 1750 Wh battery (2 batteries of 875Wh). Such a setting would allow the rider to travel distances up to 150 km on a single charge.
The battery of the V12 charges in around 9h, a good night of sleep charger plugged and you are ready for a new adventure 🙂
Equipment wise, Inmotion equips its the V12 with two USB-C and USB-A ports along with the interactive touch-screen, configurable side LEDs, a powerful headlight, a kickstand, a scorpion tail trolley and stop lights.
Finally, when it comes to road handling and adherence, the 16″ x 3″ tire offers excellent ground adherence/maneuverability and should be able to handle all types of terrain.
