A local scooter dealer brought a bunch of electric scooters to the auto show. etup right across from the Smart car stand (and you though the smart was good on gas).
Right now electric scooters/motorcycles are not licenseable on Ontario roads. I forget how they got around the issue, but they get classified as bicycles or something here.
Anyways, even the best one on sale had a top speed below 60kph and a range of less than 40 kilometers on a chrage.
The technology simply is not there yet.
I’m really not sure a review of them is appropriate on this site (yet), since they don’t yet compete with motorcycles as a practical consumer product.
Even still the only ones I saw don’t compete with motorcycles at all, but with 50cc scooters (which Ben has stated several times he doesn’t review because they are a very different demographic from motorcycles).
