TB UK040 Discontinuation of Salsa R1


Subject of Bulletin:
Following customer feedback and the desire to drive product innovation and improvements into our electric wheelchair range, the Quickie Salsa R2 and R2 HD were developed and introduced in 2013.
Since the introduction of the Quickie Salsa R2 and R2 HD demand from our customers for the Salsa R has reduced and has now reached a point where manufacturing of the Quickie Salsa R is no longer possible and for this reason it will be discontinued from 31st March 2015.
Spare parts will be available for at least 5 years following the discontinuation.
At this point we would like to remind our customers of the improvements made to the Quickie Salsa R2 and R2 HD:
  • Improved durability: chassis rated to 160kg used on Salsa R2 and R2 HD
  • Increased stability, delivered from a central battery location
  • Improved outdoor traction: Spring & damper suspension system; and adjustable COG optimises weight distribution
  • Improved indoor manoeuvrability, via a shorter wheelbase
  • Compact overall width: 60cm
  • Improved kerb climbing capability
  • Salsa R2 HD option for larger and heavier clients
If you have not yet had the opportunity to see a Quickie Salsa R2 and would like a demonstration, or would like to loan an assessment model, or receive support for an assessment, or you have a Salsa R and would like to discuss what we can offer you to upgrade it to a Salsa R2 please contact your Area Sales Manager or Customer Services on 0845 605 66 88 (Option 2).
