Theon is equipped with a mid-engine and chain transmission system with a power of up to 7,100W. It can reach a power of 9,000W equivalent to 12 horsepower and a maximum torque of 22.27Nm. This power helps Theon accelerate from 0 to 50km per hour in just six seconds and reach a maximum speed of 90km/h.
Despite travelling at high speeds, Theon is particularly safe thanks to its sturdy chassis, front and rear suspensions systems from the renowned Showa manufacturer and brakes by Nissin. In addition, Theon is equipped with a Continental 2-channel ABS system - a safety feature only available in high-end vehicles, helping the driver maintain good control in bad weather conditions when having to brake urgently or move on bad roads.
Theon uses two new-generation batteries running in parallel, enabling it to travel a distance of up to 101km in a single full charge. The new-generation batteries have excellent longevity. Their capacity remains 70 per cent after 2,000 charges.
The motorcycle has an IP67 water and dust resistance rating, which is the highest level in the market, facilitating good performance in a water immersion state with one-metre-deep pressure for 30 minutes.
Regarding design, Theon uses a colour LCD screen for the meter, displaying many parameters such as speed, battery status and temperature. Its LED lighting system uses projector technology to create a good light cross-section without affecting people moving in the opposite direction.
VinFast invested heavily in smart technology for these two new electric motorcycle models. Theon uses the phone as a key (PAAK) technology which is the world's top modern technology to help drivers easily start/shut down the vehicles, open the trunk, and activate and deactivate the anti-theft feature remotely through the application on their smartphones. It is also designed with a smart key that allows start/shutdown within one metre in distance besides an ESIM integrated HMI connection system capable of auto diagnostics and fault warning, auto software update and Global Positioning System (GPS), and journey management.
Another model launched at the same time as Theon is the Feliz model with an elegant, attractive and comfortable design that has been researched and developed to suit the needs of urban mobility of the majority of Vietnamese people.
