(NOT SHOWN IN THE PICTURES, BUT THE NEW S8 WILL BE EQUIPPED WITH TOP MOUNTED HEADLIGHT AND KEY IGNITION)
High Quality Aerospace Aluminum Alloy T6061
Battery: Massive 52V 23Ah Electric Car Grade DMEGC Cells (800 recharge cycles)
Range: 40 miles (depending on speed, rider weight and road conditions)
Max Speed: 32 MPH
Tires: New design 8" x 3.1" rubber (airless) multi terrain tires. The advantages of airless tires: immune to flats and less maintenance. You can ride on different terrains without having to worry about getting a flat. (Not designed for heavy off road riding.) You also don’t have to bother with inflating your tires or keeping the correct air pressure, so these tires require less maintenance. Riding your scooter 1500-2500 miles before changing a worn out tire gives you peace of mind. Yes, the pneumatic tires do offer a slightly softer ride. If you prefer pneumatic tires, check out the Hero S10.
Lights: Built in powerful 800 lumens headlight (top mounted,) plus lower LED front lights, and NEW acrylic side lights with over 16 million colors (patented.) 120 different light pattern options! Absolutely stunning! Now even brighter! Controlled with an app. Download app: LED Hue. Connect to SP110E. Set pixel to 600. No other manufacturer has this feature on their scooter. 2 LED rear lights (flash when brakes are applied.)
Brakes: Front and rear hydraulic oil Nutt disc brakes, plus regenerative braking (some scooters costing thousands do not provide these types of brakes.) Nutt are considered to be one of the best braking systems in the scooter industry. The hydraulic Nutt brakes do not require continual adjustments as mechanical brakes do. Just enjoy the ride! Most companies offer hydraulic brakes as an upgrade. Our customers love the hydraulic brakes so much, that we decided to offer them as a standard option on all Hero scooters.
Suspension: Dual front and rear coil spring suspension
Display: Smart LCD display with multi setting options.
Key ignition with white voltmeter display (2 keys.)
New Loud 90 dB horn
New foldable stem design. 5 sec folding!
For riders that are 5'10 and taller, we recommend the 4 inch stem extension available on our accessories page.
New BMX style handlebar (non-foldable) for higher quality riding experience. The S8 fits inside most car trunks for transport.
Hero S8 was designed to keep repairs as effortless as possible. Most scooter manufactures do not offer this option with their scooters when it comes to repairs and maintenance. For example, if the motor needs to be replaced, you will not need to open the deck to disconnect wires from the controller. You can easily unplug and remove it from the outside. All outer parts have quick disconnects; so if a part gets damaged, you can easily disconnect and replace it with a new part.
When it comes to the battery, Hero scooters are equipped with quality DMEGC cells (used in electric cars) and LG cells. All Hero scooters now come with a certified 4A charger with fan. Charge you ride fast!
