Bugatti is associated with making extremely fast, exclusive, luxurious four-wheeled creations. However, now, the French luxury auto manufacturer has collaborated with electronic accessories maker Bytech on its first-ever two-wheeler, the Bugatti 9.0 electric scooter.
It is the most affordable Bugatti-branded vehicle you can buy in 2022. The top speed is a claimed 18.5 miles per hour on the diminutive folding scooter, which will be affected by the rider’s size.
The frame is constructed of magnesium alloy, which Bytech says is meant to keep the weight manageable.
It has lighting for night rides, including a headlight, taillight, integrated turn signals in the handlebars and above the rear mudguard, deck lighting—and of course, that EB projection monogram that beams out from the back. There’s a vivid LED display up front to show you how fast you’re going, as well as help you keep track of your battery.
Bytech says the battery will get about 22 miles per charge and takes around four hours to charge from empty. The included charger (located inside a box inside the big box) plugs into your standard 110V outlet, for North American riders.
Other features comprise a safety bell, a stout little kickstand, a lock that latches the handlebar in place when you fold it down to meet the deck, and a dual brake system with a front handbrake lever and rear electronic ABS. The tires, incidentally, are the 9-inch run-flat kind, and there is zero suspension to speak of.
Bytech and Bugatti originally introduced the Bugatti 9.0 scooter at CES 2022, back in January—but it only started selling the scoots in June. Originally, they could be bought in three colors: Silver, Agile Bleu, or Black. The Silver one is now sold out on the official Bugatti Scooters webpage, but the Agile Blue and Black ones are still available for $1,200 per piece. You may also still be able to find them for around $900 at some Costco locations.
