Trinity Uranus RS: An Electric Scooter Powerful Enough to Bring the Aerox Down

German electric scooter manufacturer Trinity has launched the Uranus electric scooter that is powerful enough to compete against the Yamaha Aerox 155

Trinity, an electric scooter manufacturer from Germany, has launched an impressive scooter named Uranus RS. Looks similar to the Vespa line-up of scooters with retro-themed curvy panels and minimalistic graphics, the Uranus RS will never reach the Indian showrooms. Irrespective of that, we have still drafted this article about the Uranus because of its brilliant power figures that are good enough to compete against the Yamaha Aerox 155.

The powertrain of the Uranus RS

The Uranus RS draws power from a brushless DC motor of 6kW (8.15PS) that produces a peak power output of 11kW (15PS). As per the company, the Uranus RS can hit a top speed of 110 kilometres per hour. Moving on to the battery pack of the scooter, the RS features two battery packs.

As per Trinity, one can cover a distance of 100 kilometres when the two battery packs are combined/used. However, if the scooter is made to run on a single battery pack, the real-world riding range diminishes to 50 kilometres only. Unfortunately, at the moment, we know nothing about the charging time of the battery packs.

Digital cluster, electronic aids and more

Visually, the Trinity Uranus RS is an old-school retro-themed scooter but when it comes to features, it is a modern-day offering from the German brand that boasts of a fully digital instrument cluster along with three riding modes.

The three riding modes of the RS are Eco, Standard and Sport. In the Eco mode, the speed is restricted to 55 kilometres per hour, whereas, in the Standard mode, one can throttle up to 80 kilometres per hour. Not to forget, the top speed of 110 kilometres per hour is achieved when the Sport mode is selected.

Basic hardware

The Trinity Uranus RS is armed with basic but decent hardware. Germany’s brand-new scooter’s suspension duties are handled by a telescopic unit at the front whereas the rear features a dual-shock absorber setup. Moving on to stopping power, the scooter is armed with mini disc brakes at both ends.

Hefty price-tag

Trinity has priced the Uranus RS at 5,799 Euros, which is equivalent to 4.80 lakh Indian rupees. Therefore, it is a good thing that the Uranus RS will not be launched in India. Last but not the least, in case you are looking for a premium electric scooter in our country; check out the Ather 450s, TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak.
