It's a sleek design, that's for sure.

Sure, I know how this tune goes. First you want turn signals, then you'll want mirrors, and then you'll probably realize there's no place to hang your license plate either. Will it ever end?

http://www.electroscoot.com/scoot.html Choose animation ... it shows the turn signals on the rear integrated in the break light.

Pretty cool site!

Their site doesn't seem to work well in Firefox. And as beautiful as that thing is, it is far from DOT compliant. Also, that rear brake light thing isn't very well thought out.

I love the floorboard tread pattern though.

I think it is just a mobile cake decorating device, or maybe it's makes coffee ?

I'd buy it for a thousand bucks but not a penny more.

Definitely not DOT compliant but you could get away with riding it where you'd ride other electric scooters since it's quiet. Good for neighborhood streets but it looks so sleek that if you had to do any errands on it and haul anything, maybe the rider's backpack would throw off the balance of it.

I like the floorboard and all the other design elements, but you're right, it looks like a coffeemaker or some other sleek appliance they sell in high-end kitcheny stores.

I suppose if it's basically going to be a step above a naked electric goped, then it's fine. But 1500 Euro is a lot of money. I suppose, if you're going to use one to get around a factory, then it's kind of cool, but who needs anything that nice for such a purpose? Oh, and the thing looks like it has no suspension either. I guess it's just a cool looking exercise in never gonna happen.

Sure, nice, cool, clean, slick lines... but then I picture sticking my butt on the thing... my lines don't quite match the scoots... I'd look like a cantalope on a stick!

It's an art gallery item.

I'm impressed by this venture. Three small companies collaborated to conceptualize, design, engineer, and produce this electric scooter. All aspects of their development appear to be in perfect synergy, and they've come this far without external venture capitol. If their marketing skills are on-par, they should be profitable.

My life is brilliant.
My intentions pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the highway.
She was on an electric scooter.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a blinding pace,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never ride with you.
Hope you liked it...
