The battery promises a seven-layer protection system with an in-house developed battery management system (BMS) and IP-67 compliance.

The model uses a PMS mid-drive motor with 8.5 kW (11.3 bhp) of peak power and 4.5 kW (6 bhp) of continuous power delivery. Peak torque stands at 72 Nm. Performance figures haven't dipped though with the Simple One capable of sprinting from 0-40 kmph in 2.77 seconds with a top speed of 105 kmph.

There are four riding modes - Eco, Ride, Dash, and Sonic. The electric scooter rides on 12-inch alloy wheels and comes with combi-braking with a 200 mm disc at the front and a 190 mm single disc at the rear. The model uses telescopic front forks and a monoshock unit at the rear. The tubular steel frame underpins the vehicle.
