PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC – March 9, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – In Czechoslovakia between 1957 and 1964, one scooter came to symbolise fun, freedom and adventure for young Czechs. The distinctively long torpedo shape, long seat and running boards of the Čezeta not only caught the eye, they made room for lovers riding pillion. Over 100,000 were quickly sold and many still survive today as a timeless celebration of beauty, individuality, and the pursuit of pleasure.
No other motorcycle aroused the emotions quite like the Čezeta. Now, on the occasion of its 60th Anniversary, the legendary bike is back – this time as a luxury electric scooter.
The Type 506 luxury scooter
The beautifully-engineered next generation Čezeta retains the iconic 1950s design, simplified with clean lines for a more contemporary style. Developed and built entirely in the Czech Republic, it delivers a mighty 11kW output giving a top speed of 120km/h and 0-50 km/h in only 3.2 seconds. Other new and original technologies include the 2-way Sway throttle and the Dynamics torque selector, providing exceptional control in all riding conditions. In keeping with the simple and usable philosophy of the original Čezeta constructors, all functions of use and charging have been fully-automated to produce an effortlessly addictive motorcycle.
Limited Edition of 600 in 2017
Rarer than a Rolls-Royce, up to 600 Type 506s will be hand-built to order to customer specifications at the Čezeta Motors facility in Prostějov, eastern Czech Republic in 2017. Each will be marked to celebrate the occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the first Čezeta, the Type 501.
From 2018, the company has plans to expand production and distribution of the 506 beyond Europe.
“We are the start of a revolution in motorcycle manufacturing,” said Neil Eamonn Smith, CEO of Čezeta Motors s.r.o. “Using a perfect combination of technology, craftsmanship and aesthetics, our goal is to become the world’s most desirable scooter.”
