Sydney-based electric motorbike maker Fonzarelli has unveiled its latest addition to the Fonz gang, namely an entry-level electric scooter it has aptly dubbed “Arthur”, after its eponymous 60s sitcom character from Happy Days.
(Yes, the real name of the Fonz was Arthur).
Sitting at a very comfortable price point of just $3,990, Arthur scooter will join Fonzarelli’s existing line up including the FZ, S1, and X1 moped-style electric bikes and the recently launched top-of-the line NKD electric motorbike.
“Arthur is the affordable ‘little cuz’ of our Good Design Award-winning Fonzarelli X1 scooter and the recently launched NKD motorbike – our street legal beast,” said Fonzarelli founder Michelle Nazzari.
“We’ve got the rep for producing the hottest and highest-performing two-wheel electric vehicles in the country across design, technology and environmental considerations.
“We are now on a mission to make EVs more accessible by offering the tried and tested Fonz powertrain in an entry-level format.”
Launched at a press event to preview the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) 2019 EV Expo, which takes place at the Sydney Olympic Park on October 26-27, the Arthur was available for first test rides.
The launch version of the scooter is in a blue to celebrate iconic musician David Bowie and his distinct electric bolt.
In addition to limited edition blue, Arthur will be available in standard four colours including “moon grey”, “racer green”, “royal aubergine” and “matte black.”
