Two Very Different Electric Scooters

EVT-168The $1999 EVT-168 electric scooter looks like something from a 1950s Fellini film. Its chrome trim sparkles, and it putters along happily with a funky neo-retro design. But don't let the looks fool you -- this modern electric bike is capable of reaching speeds of up to 45 km/h (30 mph). It weighs a reasonable 128 kg (282 lbs) and the battery can be charged to 90% capacity within 5 hours. The EVT-168 has been certified street-legal in the USA and Canada, and doesn't require a special motorcycle endorsement in most jurisdictions.
Now for the big news. EVT America is almost ready to introduce the sleek new Z-20, capable of an impressive 45 mph (75 kmh). It's driven by a 2 kW electric hub motor that serves up about 40% more torque than their previous designs. EVT apparently designed a new power controller in Toronto to ensure maximum performance. Front and rear disc brakes are standard, and you can easily take a passenger along. Available Real-Soon-Now for $1999.
