Electric scooters are still in their infancy. Battery technology needs to improve before they will be accepted as a serious and viable means of cheap transportation. At present, the Mfg's speed and miles/charge stats are somewhat exaggerated. If the technology continues to improve, electric scooters will gain in popularity.

Robert, I telling you the truth electric scooters are bad idea.. people wont buy it. you ride e-scooter for 50 or 70 miles and recharge battery for 2 hours or so.

I rather stick with gas scooter. ;o)

I agree, that is what I stated in my post.
"Battery technology needs to improve before they will be accepted as a serious and viable means of cheap transportation. At present, the Mfg's speed and miles/charge stats are somewhat exaggerated"
Electric scooter performance will have to improve to generate a demand for them. Whether it will or not remains to be seen.
