SALES

Where can I buy a Čezeta?

The Čezeta is available to buy in 24 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Registration and warranty conditions vary according to which country you are resident in. Exporting the Type 506 into different markets outside the EU is not supported by Čezeta at the current moment.

How do I buy my Čezeta?

Simply configure your Čezeta in the Buy section and provide your personal details. We will confirm your order and send you details of how to pay the deposit by email.

WARRANTY

What is the warranty?

The Type 506 is supplied with a Standard warranty of 2-years / 40,000 km (506/01 and 506/02), or an optional Extended warranty of 5-years / 80,000 km (506/01) or 5-years / 100,000 km (506/02). For a list of Čezeta Authorised Service Partners click here.

MAINTENANCE

What maintenance is required?

Your Čezeta Type 506 requires no oil changes, fuel filters, spark plugs or emission checks. Instead we do an annual Maintenance Inspection of your vehicle and implement any available upgrades that improve your Čezeta.

LICENCE

What licence do I need?

The Type 506 is rated in European class "A1" (up to 11 kW power), which means that it is generally possible to ride it with a car licence in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Italy, Latvia, Spain, Poland and Portugal. Other countries like Austria, France and the UK require a 1-day basic training course without test. Each country has its own conditions and if in doubt please contact us for advice or check with your local driving authorities.

What about insurance?

In the EU, insurance is done in the same way as with any other vehicle, and available from all major providers. It is usually very cheap, for example the current year insurance cost in the Czech Republic is the equivalent of €33 per year, depending on age and history.

Can I ride on the motorway?

Yes, with your A1 licence.

 

BATTERIES

How do I charge the scooter?

Simply plug in the charging cable provided into the scooter’s on-board charger and the other end into any standard 220-240V household socket. Charging is completely automatic, and will stop when charging is completed.

How long does it take to charge the battery?

The Type 506 charges at a rate of 42 km per hour from a domestic 220-240v socket and approximately twice this speed from a 3-phase power source. We will introduce a fast charger late 2017 that charges in roughly 30 minutes for an 80% charge.

How do I know when to charge the battery?

There is a meter in the instrument panel that reads just like a petrol gauge. If you are running low, a red warning light will flash.

Are the batteries safe?

The battery pack uses proven Panasonic 18650 LiFeYPO4 cells (the same cells as used by Tesla), proven safe and recyclable cells.

How big is the battery pack?

You have a choice of 4 kWh or 6 kWh.

What is the performance of the battery packs?

The Type 506/01 offers a range of 100km, a top speed of 85 km/h and acceleration 0-50km/h of 4.3 seconds. The Type 506/02 offers a range of 150 km, a top speed of 120 km/h and acceleration 0-50 km/h in 2.3 seconds. The difference is roughly equivalent to a 125cc or a 300cc sport scooter.

How long does the battery pack last?

If looked after correctly, tests indicate a peak life of 2000 cycles over 10 years, after which performance drops but is still useable. The pack is maintenance free.

TEST RIDES

Can I have a test ride?

Test rides are available from our showroom in Prague. Please note that only 600 Type 506 first series (Anniversary Series) will be produced however, so many customers are ordering without test rides in order to secure their Čezeta.

OTHER

Does the Čezeta make any noise?

It is much quieter than a traditional scooter. Hard throttle applications (drag race starts) produce a low "growl" for a short distance, then the bike is quiet except for the sound of the motor and tyres and the wind as you ride. For city use, use of the optional bluetooth speakers fitted to the bike may assist you to alert people to your presence.

Can I carry a passenger?

The Type 506 is a long wheelbase scooter with a long saddle, so there is plenty of room for a passenger.

How much does fuel cost?

When charged at home at night, the fuel cost (electricity) of a Cezeta Type 506 is approximately 50% less than a 125 cc scooter with an engine fuelled by petrol. This is equivalent to less than €1 for 100km.
