I recently met up with Michelle Nazzari who is the founder of Fonzarelli Bikes. I was intrigued to hear more about her latest innovation, the chic Fonzarelli, is Australia’s first 100% electric Moto Scooter to hit Australian shores and offers are totally silent ride.
Michelle created the Fonzarelli electric moto because she believes in 100% emission-free and eco-friendly personal transport. We like that!
The Fonzarelli bike is easy to cruise around town, with superb engineering to ensure stability and balance for even the novice rider. A Fonzarelli is the perfect choice for urban dwellers who want an alternative to traditional petrol options, with cutting edge technology and at the same time, protecting the environment.
Complete with a compact removable lightweight battery, it can reach a full charge in 3-5 hours, or a fast charge up to 80% in just one hour. “Charging the bike is as simple as recharging your phone” says Nazzari. “You can even charge your phone while you ride with the under-seat USB charger.”
Not only a high-powered and economical ride, the Fonzarelli also ramps up the style stakes to make quite a chic transport option around today. There is a choice between base colours of matte black, optic white or rocket red and accessories can be customised to build individual unique and personal designs, and the intelligent Fonzarelli operating system can be customised to suit rider experience and city riding conditions.
Michelle took me for a little demo down in Rushcutters Bay and I was amazed at how silent this little beauty is. It's almost enough to make a certain blogger go and get her L plates for riding a motor scooter.
