Description

Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the 350-watt output and makes perfect for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.

For the Vado 6.0, Specialized developed a custom 604Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado 6.0 will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 50 miles in Economy mode, 35 miles in Sport mode, and 25 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates, of course, have some assumptions—the total rider and bike weight is 220 pounds, the terrain is flat with some inclines, and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words, with a top speed of 28mph, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.

They also developed a custom-for-Vado 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer, you’re able to connect, via Bluetooth, to the Turbo Vado Mission Control App for full control over your Vado. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences, it eliminates range anxiety through the Smart Control function, and it offers you a wide range of features, including navigation, tracking, diagnostics, and ride history. You can also peruse through these screens via the custom handlebar remote, without ever removing your hand from the bars.

To top off all of the innovative features, the Turbo Vado 6.0 features Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, a SR Suntour fork with 50mm of travel, racks, and fenders—it's ready to take on the town in effortless style.

Features & Info

Turbo Vado Motor

Specialized Turbo Vado Motor

You're in Control

Meet the Turbo Vado’s motor. It’s eerily silent, and with its pedal-assisted, custom-tuned power, it multiplies your pedaling input by up to 320%. To run, it uses custom software that senses the torque you’re applying in each pedal stroke, and an algorithm amplifies the power that you’re putting in. The more power that you apply, the more power it puts out. It even allows you to custom tune it, so you can ride in your sweet spot for an intuitive feel and ride quality. It’s all up to you.

Turbo Vado Battery

The Power is in Your Hands

Like the motor, it’s customizable and fully integrated, however, it’s also easily removable, so you can charge it from wherever you want. While you’re riding, you can control the range, so you’ll never be left to pedal home unassisted.
