So is it for use on the street or sidewalk?

Not sure how the 'mericans will interrupt, but sidewalk and bike path seems legit. First thought was flying down some of the mountain roads on it! and loading it up for camping.

Doesn't say anything about price, speed, or range, the 3 most critical aspects of any electric vehicle. And those wide squared off tires do not look like they would do well in turns.

Oh but it does at the bottom of the Kickstarter page:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...urban-mobility

And the FAQ answers even more questions.

Looks are deceiving ........sort of

While I enjoy seeing these modern marvels but then after the thrill is gone , you have to consider is there an APPLICATION for it ? A poster above wisely asked , where you would use it ? it looks to fast for crowded side walks , and way to slow for our roads . Here in the states our infrastructure is 99% built around a car , cute toy but pretty much useless here .

In Illinois, bicycles are not allowed on the sidewalks (but you see it all of the time). All it would take is a rider hitting a pedestrian and that would be the end of the Scooser. That said, I do see people on Segways on the sidewalk. I would think it would be allowed in the bike lanes, in Chicago. It would certainly not be allowed in any forest preserve because it's motorized.

This is neither designed at or designed for America. Not everything revolves around America.

I just get a little annoyed whenever some type of scooter news gets announced and then somebody has to crap on it because it does not fit the North America transportation model. So yes.

Scooters are definitely a global oriented vehicle.

I could use it too commute on, lots of bike paths etc near me. Just look like it is a blast, I use to ride a bmx style scooter back in the early 90 that was a blast.

AngryScot (I think this makes me cool right )
