When we set out to revamp our Turbo line, our motto was that ""busy lives call for faster bikes."" That's because we wanted to be sure that we designed a bike that best meets your needs. With our lives getting more hectic with each passing day, after all, finding the littlest time savings can have a huge impact, and the 6.0 truly embodies this concept. It utilizes our most advanced pedal-assist technologies, a high-quality component spec, and a suspension fork to take the edge out of those pesky potholes. No matter where you're going, get there fast and in style with the Turbo Vado 6.0 Step-Through.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 S motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the powerful output and makes it most usable 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, we developed a custom 600 Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, 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. If you wish to see exactly how far you can go on a charge, have a look at our Turbo Range Calculator for more exact estimates.
The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics (speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.), it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With our free app for iOS and Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters, control your range, record/upload rides, and perform basic system diagnosis.
To top off all of the innovative features, we chose a high-end spec for the Turbo Vado 6.0. Featuring Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, a SR Suntour fork with 50mm of travel, racks, and fenders, the Vado 6.0 is ready to take on the town.
