Style and Design of Ampere Magnus Pro
With a regular design and style, the electric scooter from Ampere Magnus Pro can easily be mistaken for a typical model with an IC engine. The Magnus Pro features a number of components, chrome finishes, and highlights that enhance its beauty. Starting from the front, a massive LED lighting unit is available on the front body, with a thick chrome strip on the top of the new Magnus Pro electric scooter. Further down, a thick V-shaped Chrome piece is provided which is integrated with the widespread turning indicators. In its side profile, it offers simple and minimalist design features.
A single-piece seat is provided for the Magnus Pro. The wide seat and the long footboard allow both a rider and the extra person, a very comfortable sitting posture. The seats also provide a fair degree of coating, so that both drivers and passengers can comfortably sit on extended trips. The batteries of the Magnus Pro are positioned with the under-seat storage area, contrary to other electric scooters. The storage itself has good size and is equipped with an LED light, which is always activated.
Engine Options in Ampere Magnus Pro
This electric scooter is powered by a lithium-ion 60V 30Ah battery pack combined with an electric motor of 1.2 kW. There are two modes in the Magnus Pro, the low and high. The “L” mode is primarily the “Eco” mode, whereas the “H” mode is the “Standard” mode. There is a clear difference between the two modes. In “L” mode, the scooter swiftly lowers the power and ensures a longer range. Ampere claims in this mode that the Magnus Pro can provide up to 100km of range. However, the range in ‘L’ mode should be only 75km under real-world conditions.
Most of the power is available in the ‘High or H’ mode of the scooter. The top speed in this setting rises to 55 km/h, even if you end up compromising the range to the 60 km mark. In addition to the high-speed differences, both modes are differentially tuned. The power in ‘L’ mode is more linear and the scooter takes a few seconds to speed up. However, the power is given immediately at the higher setting. For most riders, ‘H’ mode is the logical choice because the scooter delivers higher performance, particularly either overtaking or riding up.
