Simply give us a call on 01263 588160 or Enquiry Here. Please note that you will need to have a bike licence or a current CBT (compulsory basic training) to be able to test ride* a Silence e-moto scooter.
*If you completed your driving test before 1st February 2001 then you can ride the S02 2kWh low speed (50cc equivalent) without a CBT.
Silence SO1 & SO2
The Silence SO2 & SO1 are 125cc equivalents, meaning they are in the L3e-A1 category for motorcycles. This can be ridden by anyone OVER the age of 17 years old, has a provisional licence and has completed their CBT (Compulsory Basic Training). With a full driving licence, the CBT must still be completed.
Silence SO2 LS & SO2 Long Range
The two SO2 LS models are 50cc equivalents and sit in the L1e category. These can be ridden by anyone over the age of 16 years old, has a provisional licence AND has completed a CBT.
For those who are a little older and passed their driving test before 1st of February 2001, then officially you do not need to complete a CBT to ride a 50cc equivalent bike. However, the CBT is just a one day course and extremely useful so we would still recommend you complete a CBT if you're new to the world of two wheel motors.
For the most up to date information on CBTs for Motorcycles & scooters please go to CBT motorcycle and moped training - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Electric Motorcycles are actually exempt from vehicle tax, however they must be registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) and display number plates.
Every vehicle in the UK over three years old needs an MOT test and motorcycles are no exception. This will cover all the standard tests for a motorcycle.
Riding a Silence Scooter is so much fun, they really are a joy to ride. Electric means instant power so the SO1 & SO2 Models move from 0-30mph in 3.9 seconds- amazing!
Silence estimated daily running costs are slashed by 80% and maintenance costs 30%. Travelling up to 100 miles for around £1.
Charging a Silence Scooter, literally could not be any easier! Silence batteries use a 3-pin UK standard plug and charge with a 240v socket. You can either charge the battery on the bike or take it off with Silence's 'Click & Go' trolley system to simply remove it from the scooter, wheel it in and charge it.
A comprehensive three year manufacturer's warranty on Silence Batteries & Two Years on the e-motor scooters. Not only that, you will also receive Two Years' breakdown cover with our partner, AA.
