And that got me thinking of desirable, factory-built, electric scooters that are available in the US. I made a quick list. Then I realized that many on my list are still not quite available. So the list kept changing.
So here's the available list:
Daymak Beast (Check out the expanded Beast offerings)
Genze (NOW AVAILABLE)
Built by a huge transportation company (Mahindra) with lots of resources for design and manufacturing, this bike looks promising, low-priced, and has more hauling capacity than most two-wheelers - the Genze could fill a lot of needs for the right buyer. They have been selling e-bikes here for a little while, but they are still taking reservations for US sales of the Genze scooter.
Bolt M-1 (NOW AVAILABLE)
Not Coming at All
e-Schwalbe (Turn on the translator)
May you scooter dorks (like me) enjoy knowing what's out there to choose from and may you find something non-polluting to get you around!
