The Felo FW-03 scooter looks like a Yamaha BWs of the future…

There was a time, a long, long time ago, when a young Toad Hancocks went to the NEC Motorcycle Show and fell in love with the funky Yamaha BWs.

It had the color scheme of one of those Campri ski jackets that were so trendy, stamped steel wheels and knobby tires. For an eight-year-old toad, it was literally the pooch’s nut. Unfortunately, I never had my day with a BW, or the similarly styled Honda Cub EZ90 for that matter. And now I probably never will.

What I can do, well if I lived in Hong Kong, is try what is likely to be the next best thing! It is called the Felo FW-03 and is an all-electric lightweight scooter. Let’s go over the essentials that meant the most to the mini-me who first fell in love with the NEC: stamped steel rims – control, buttons – control, sinister paint – control, one-piece bodywork – control, twin headlights… twin headlights…? Okay, you can’t have it all, but as long as you look sideways, you can’t really tell.

Beneath this outer skin is a light and very simple machine. It has a 5.5 hp, 7 lb-ft motor and is powered by a 48V 30Ah lithium battery. Charging takes six to eight hours, and once fully charged it will propel you up to 50 mph and carry you around 60 miles (in the off-road version).

We tried to get a quote for the bike, and the only thing we can find is the quoted amount of 18,800 Chinese yen, which works out to around £2,250. Sure, you’d really have to want one to get one shipped, but we (the eight-year-old in all of us) can dream, can’t we?
