This has happened to me twice in the last week and is causing much distress. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them, or knows the cause?
I don't often ride of motorways (freeways) here, as the speed I have to maintain is wasteful on the battery range, but there was no choice on these two occasions, and they happened 5 days apart.
Without warning, and with the speedo showing 65-70 Kph, all driving power is lost. There is no warning sound, alert or instrumentation anomaly. 'GO' remains shoeing on the display, but when twisting the throttle, it isn't possible to maintain or increase speed - you are effectively freewheeling to a standstill (and not useful on a UK motorway!).
Pulling over to the emergency lane, I tried to have a controlled stop using regen braking, but this was not possible either - irrespective of the position of the throttle, I was simply coasting to a standstill.
Once stopped, all instrumentation remained fine, with no warning or alerts showing. Attempting to accelerate away achieved nothing. Turning the emergency off switch off and back on achieved nothing, except when off, the Speedo swung around (as it does normally anyway).
The anomaly was 'fixed' by turning OFF the VX1 ignition key to blank the displays, and turning it back on. After doing the brake lever initialisation, 'GO' illuminated, and it was possible to ride on, as before and rejoin the traffic flow.... until it happens again.
As noted earlier, this is now the second time this has happened, but before I mention it to Vectrix, have others experienced anything similar, what was the cause - and is there a cure?
