You had me at towel holder
A towel is just about the most massively useful thing an interstellar scooterist can carry.

And this thing has two.

A dresser on wheels. How nice, but not for me. Hurts my eyes...

Pretty cool idea for increasing storage, which is one of the scooter's great strengths vs. a comparably-sized motorcycle. I'd like to see a space large enough for a carry-on suitcase.

However, this concept does away with the weather protection afforded by the leg shield--one of the other great practical features of scooters. I suppose one could be added though.

Looks like riding a log. It hurts my eyes also.

Hey, it may be ugly, but... yeah, that's all I got. I think the idea of electric scooters is modern thinking. Here's one I had back in the 90s...

And you can dry yourself off with it if it's still clean enough.

So you loose the weather protection and step through design for the sake of a little extra storage.

Nothing new under the Sun...
The Centaur Folding Scooter circa 1960 folded into the size and shape of a suitcase!

So many other "cubist" ugly duckling scooters, it was hard to choose a winner.

seems like a solution looking for a problem.

Guess they have never used a scooter for really moving some stuff, else they will know about the bag hook and space there. Two bags of groceries under the seat and two bags of pine cones for the fire place on the floor board and away we go.

What you might callÖreinventing the Vespa. Just not particularly well.

When the original idea is the best you can conceive, everything else is relative. As if a pair of boobs were enough to make a beautiful woman.

Looks like everything on that site is vaporware.

Lots of "bright new ideas" that will never see even the glimmer of ever being manufactured

I'll have to give a few points for the design, seen worse from the storage viewpoint.

Otherwise... a typical misconception that people actually want the things they need
