By exploiting the technical basis of this model, theFeng Chen Wang edition stands out for its exclusive design and some other novelties.

Aesthetically, the designer took care of the decoration of the livery and the colors (in combination) of the saddle and the rest of the Piaggio 1 electric scooter. The result is a special version that stands out for combining the Chinese tradition (the designer’s country of origin) with the characteristic creativity of London.where Feng’s studio and team are located.

Thus, we can see one mixture of green colors that simulates a watercolor, while also elements such as the seat or the wheels are finished in this color.

on a technical level there is no variation, so this Piaggio 1 Feng Chen Wang can be associated with two of the three versions that this model has: Piaggio 1 and Piaggio 1 Active. The first has a 1.2 kW engine which allows it to reach speeds of up to 45 km / h; The Active brings the power to 2 kW, and consequently the maximum speed rises to 60 km / h.

As for the battery, it is also offered in different versions depending on the variant chosen. For example, Piaggio 1 has a 1.4 kWh battery, which allows you to travel 55 km, while the “Active” version, with its 2.4 kWh battery, reaches up to 85 km (always in ECO mode).
