Equipment and finishes of the Zontes E125 2024
To begin with, we must mention the striking front headlight composed of two optics that encompass nothing less than six polyellipsoidal LED spotlights which are completed by a light guide that acts as an intense DRL light. The rear optical group, also LED, is divided into two parts that each include a strip for the position light, another for the turn signals and, with more intensity, the brake light.
The front image is reinforced by a wraparound transparent windshield that electrically adjustable in height simply by pressing a button. The rider’s protection is completed with handguards that not only reduce the cold in winter, but also prevent impacts on the hands against car rearview mirrors in urban use.
Another detail to take into account is the adjustable handles and incorporates handlebar adjustment in two positions. On that handlebar there is a large number of backlit controls to facilitate identification during night driving and a TFT color screen larger than that known from its brothers M and D.
The screen offers a large amount of information, among which it is worth highlighting the real-time monitoring of tire pressure, Bluetooth connectivity or the function “Screen Mirroring” with which to clone your mobile screen on the TFT, viewing any selected App (for example, Google Maps).
Another detail that will facilitate the use of the E125 is its lighting system.PKE proximity smart wash in the form of a bracelet. Also its great loading capacity with a compartment under the seat in which two full-face helmets can be accommodated with sufficient clearance, including a removable partition between them so that small objects do not roll inside.
The load capacity is complemented by two glove compartments on the counter shield; The one on the left has a unified closure with the steering lock and inside there is a usb power socket. There is a second USB type C socket under the instrument panel display. Both are fast charging with short circuit protection.
