The Vado features a custom 250-watt motor and 460Wh battery that are fully integrated with the bike and specifically tuned for city riding, and in the case of the battery, it doesn't require any tools for removal, so it's super easy to remove from the bike for charging. The tune, meanwhile, is meant to be as efficient as possible for quick, spontaneous efforts that are demanded when riding in the city. Specialized also made sure that it's totally compatible with Bluetooth, so you can toggle between battery modes to increase your range in real time via the Mission Control App. There are three battery modes to work with in order to maximize the battery life, and with the app, you can even plot your course and the battery will adjust while you're riding to make sure that you get through your ride on one charge.
The Vado's motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a 250-watt output. It's also been custom-tuned for city riding, and it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedalling. So the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
A custom 2.2-inch LCD digital display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time. It also connects the Mission Control App via Bluetooth, so you have full control over the tune, modes, range, and much more.
