If you lead a busy life and always find yourself on the go, then the Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through from Specialized is the perfect bike for you. This city bike is designed to accommodate the needs of those with fast-paced lifestyles, and it features our award-winning pedal-assist technology, taken to a whole new level. At the heart of the Turbo Vado is the integrated Specialized 1.2 E motor. This motor is specifically tuned for efficiency, offering less peak torque and maximum output. It operates quietly thanks to our Custom Rx Street Tune, making it ideal for urban environments. When you're ready to accelerate, the motor responds quickly and efficiently, allowing you to zip away from traffic lights with ease. And best of all, the belt drive system ensures a smooth and silent ride, free from vibrations. With a maximum speed of 15mph, this bike will keep pace with your busy life. The Vado 3.0 is equipped with a custom Specialized U1-460 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame. It is lockable and easily removable for convenient charging. This battery provides ample power to get you to and from work, the grocery store, or anywhere else you need to go in the city. If you want to know exactly how far you can go on a single charge, check out our Turbo Range Calculator for more precise estimates. The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the perfect way to monitor your Turbo. Not only does it display important ride metrics such as speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, and time, but it also allows you to connect to the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With this free app for iOS and Android, you can customize motor parameters, control your range, record and upload rides, and perform basic system diagnosis. To top it all off, we've equipped the Turbo Vado 3.0 with worry-free Shimano 9-speed components, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, front and rear lights, and fenders. This ensures a smooth and safe ride every time. Choose the Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through from Specialized and experience a bike that's perfectly designed for your busy, on-the-go life.
