Belgian Ydra launches limited Folon edition e-scooter

Belgian electric scooter manufacturer, Ydra, launches a limited edition of its Retro range dedicated to the internationally renowned Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon. Limited to 50 units, the e-scooter is draped in a special paint scheme inspired by the artist’s 1972 ‘Double Vue’ piece.

Alongside celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Foundation Folon, Belgian electric scooter manufacturer, Ydra is launching a limited edition model from its Retro range, paying tribute to the Belgian artist. Folon, born in 1934 in Uccle near Brussels, was a much-recognized artist, illustrator, painter, and sculptor unit. He died in October 2005.

50 e-scooters

In collaboration with the Fondation Folon, Ydra is launching the Retro Folon Limited Editon. Based on the brand’s Retro electric scooter, this version presents a specific paint scheme representing Folon’s 1972 ‘Double Vue’ piece. At €4 895, each unit, the 50-piece limited run can be booked on the scooter maker’s website.

Ydra’s Retro scooter takes the well-known 50’s Italian scooter and brings it to the 21st century with an electric powertrain. Equivalent to 50cc, the 3 kW motor pumps its energy from a 23,4 Ah lithium-ion battery, giving it a range of 50 km at a maximum speed of 45 km/hour. A second optional battery can be installed to double the range.
