If you can characterize your life as on-the-go, busy, or not having enough time, we made a bike for you—the Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through. It's made to accommodate busy lives that are always in movement, which is why we took our award-winning pedal-assist technology and accelerated it well into the future.
The Turbo Vado’s Specialized 1.2 E motor emphasizes efficiency and range. We also fully integrated it with the frame, and it's been custom-tuned for city riding. 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.
Specialized made the custom 460 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
Test ride this bike at our electric bike showroom to see how fun e-bike riding can be!

Since 1974, we’ve had one goal: Innovate and inspire to improve riders’ lives. So, when we developed our first electric bike in 2009, we knew it had to ride and feel like a great bike first—something we’d really love to ride ourselves. We wanted you to feel like you were on a “regular” bike, but that somehow, you’d grown superhero legs. Our core mission still hasn’t changed. It’s now, and forever will be, our promise for every Turbo: It’s You, Only Faster.
Taking a motor and battery off the shelf would be easy, but we never compromise by just doing the “easy” thing. Instead, we develop our tech in e-Bike-obsessed Cham, Switzerland, and we tune the ride at our Morgan Hill, California headquarters. We carve our own path to deliver electric bikes that ride like they’re truly you, only faster.
Bicycles and products are generally shipped via FedEx and tracking information will be provided to you once en route. Shipping time typically takes from 6–10 business days. Bikes will be shipped 80-90% assembled and we encourage customers to have a professional bicycle mechanic complete final assembly and tuning for performance and safety reasons. We offer a $50 reimbursement for this provided the customer gives proof of service. At that time, we will send a check for reimbursement and activate the manufacturer’s warranty.
We encourage local customers to pick up fully assembled and tuned bikes (free of charge) or inquire about our local delivery options. Delivery within a 15 mile radius of our shop is free when bikes are ordered online. Contact us immediately at 619-564-7028 or firstname.lastname@example.org after online purchase to make arrangements.
