The KAAspeed K1S is a beautifully designed, powerful and fast cruiser style electric scooter that rides like a Cadillac and carves like a Ferrari.
KAAspeed is known for creating high quality, custom fat tire electric scooters; this one, the KAAspeed K1S, is companies’ staple and has built-in security features, custom molded fat tires that offer incredible control, excellent geometry for a comfortable ride, a full-size twist throttle for that motorcycle feel and power plus speed to spare.
Power - 1,200 nominal watts, 1,500 peak watts
The KAAspeed K1S has a powerful 1,200 hub motor that can crank out a continuous 1,200 watts of power with the ability to temporarily boost to 1,500 peak watts. But this motor feels stronger than comparable motors of the same wattage output and is able to easily climb moderate to steep hills and keep the rider at top speed until the battery runs dry.
Speed - 25 or 35 km/h
The KAAspeed K1S has a top speed of 25 or 35 km/h, which can be reached using the full size twist throttle. Cruising at top speed feels comfortable on the KAAspeed K1S and the tire profile makes it easy and fun to aggressively carve from side to side or just ride flat out on a straight away.
Battery and Range – 48Volt 20Ah, 60 km
The KAAspeed K1S runs on a 48Volt system and has a massive 20Ah battery for an estimated max range of 40 miles with the full size twist throttle. The battery is located beneath the deck, which keeps the center of gravity low and helps add even more stability to the K1S. The battery location also keeps it safe from dirt and debris. The battery can be quickly and easily removed for those who want to swap it out to keep riding even further.
Display - LCD
The KAAspeed K1S has a small LCD display on the left side of the handlebars that provides basic feedback like speed and battery level. The display has a built in RFID reader and the K1S is unlocked via a provided RFID card.
Frame and weight - 6061 Aluminum alloy, 43 KG
The KAAspeed K1S is constructed from aluminum alloy and has a curb weight of 43 KG, which is much lighter than its competitors, but still heavier than most electric bikes.
NO-Suspension - Rigid forks
The KAAspeed K1S has no suspension, but the tires have a large air volume and act as a sort of shock absorption to help smooth out the road.
Brakes - Hydraulic disc
The KAAspeed K1S has hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors in the front and rear, providing an excess of stopping power, which is good for a vehicle that goes this fast. The brake levers are equipped with motor inhibitors, which instantly cut power to the motor whenever the brake levers are depressed.
