    Interesting.

    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! :lol2 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.

    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. :wink:

    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. :puke1

    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.

    You have quite an imagination , no one was crapping on any thing I even called it a "modern marvel" . I just pointed out the fact that while it was a cool tool , there was no realistic application for it especially here in the states . Actually in all the places I've been around the world , I can't think of one where it would be practical . On another note you might want to see a doctor , today they have all kinds of medications for people with emotional problems like yours .
