Get all of the pedal-assist features you desire at a price that lets you keep your daily cappuccino ritual with the Vado 2.0. Featuring many of the same characteristics as its more expensive siblings, albeit with a little less "roar" to its motor, the Vado 2.0 is firmly rooted as the ultimate transportation tool for everything from grocery runs to commutes. Remember: Busy lives call for faster bikes.

Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the efficient 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 2.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-460 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 93 miles in Economy mode, 40 miles in Sport mode, and 25 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates, of course, have some assumptions—the total rider and bike weight is 220 pounds, the terrain is flat with some inclines, and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words, with a top speed of 20mph, 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.

We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.

To top off all of these innovative features, we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 2.0. It features a range of Shimano 9-speed components and powerful hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime, so the Vado 2.0 is the perfect tool for your busy lifestyle.

  • The Vado’s Specialized 1.2 motor is fully integrated with the frame and is custom-tuned for city riding. This means that it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling—so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
