Notable performance metrics include a 0-50km/h acceleration in 3.05 seconds and a maximum power output of 9.0 kW.

A first in the urban two-wheel industry, the Pulse’s active-matrix lighting system, comprising 13 independent LED units, adapts to various riding conditions, enhancing safety and visibility. Furthermore, the Smart Cockpit dashboard boasts a 10.25-inch panoramic HD touch display powered by Qualcomm Technologies’ QWM2290 SoC, offering an array of features like ride modes, navigation, and real-time traffic information.

In a collaboration with Apple, the Pulse integrates the scooter key in the Apple Wallet app and Apple’s Find My feature, allowing riders to lock, unlock, and locate their Smartscooter seamlessly.

Gogoro anticipates the Pulse to start shipping in Taiwan by late Q2 2024. This launch underscores Gogoro’s ongoing efforts to redefine urban mobility and reflects its global recognition as an innovator in sustainable transportation solutions, including battery swapping for electric two-wheel vehicles.
