This scooter is not electric, neither does it have groundbreaking technology, but it is probably one of the coolest scooter on this planet because, Gundam. Whether or not you are a fan of this nearly 40-year-old Japanese giant mecha, you can’t deny this Gundam scooter is a serious head turner. Whoever created this custom Gundam scooter is pure genius. Though, something could be done about the headlamp and turn signal lights, so the scooter could have a more integrated look. Just saying… We do not know the background of this two-wheel of awesomeness, but we do know Ryo Inoue, a Japanese who no doubt have a huge thing for Gundam, is the new proud owner.

What you see here is not a half-baked electric maxi-scooter C Evolution from BMW Motorrad. It is just Rolf Reick of Krautmotors giving the C Evolution the art of omission, which means it is intentionally left bare. That’s another level of industrial look there that gives it an apocalypse vibe. I like! The multidisciplinary customizer has taken the road less traveled when whipping his magic on the BMW Motorrad’s e-scooter, removing the original cladding and adding an old-school casing which leaves half of the bike’s internals in all its glory. Yes, only half, but that’s dope enough. Man, the old-school casing in matte black kind of add to the futuristic apocalypse look. Continue reading Custom BMW C Evolution Scooter Looks Like A Ride From Apocalypse
The concept of monowheel electric vehicle such as the Uno Bolt you see here is certainly not new. But it is certainly new when it comes what goes inside of it. It has what its creator called Gyro Force Technology. The built-in stabilizer sensors make it the quickest responding gyroscope to be outfitted in an monowheel electric vehicle. And it has a seat so for those who prefer not to stand balancing it and that, my friend, sounds like a win to us. Aesthetically, it looks much like the Ryno Microcycle we saw a few years ago, except it is a lot trimmed. Meaning, it looks a lot less like a one-wheel motorcycle and a lot like a last mile transportation. Continue reading Meet Uno Bolt, The World’s First Electric Unicycle With Gyro Force
The last mile transportation is all the rage now. Ever since the introduction of self-balancing technology, there have been several innovative last mile transportations like the more typical electric scooter, hoverboard that does not quite hover – just to name a couple. There are even some that takes balancing to a whole new level with monowheel variety. Speaking of which, there’s a new monowheel transportation device in town and it is called Kiwano K01 Electric Scooter. Unlike most monowheel transportation, K01 is much like a skatescooter minus the rear section, or you can think of it as the original Segway but with just one wheel. Continue reading Kiwano K01 Electric Scooter Needs No Carrying Cos’ It Will Follow You
If you don’t already know, bike sharing is all the rage in Asia, especially in China and in East Asia. When we talked about bike sharing, we are not talking about those two-wheeler you pick up at fixed locations; we are talking about bikes that you can pick up anywhere you can find littered around. This system has no fixed return and pick up point. Yes, it can get a little messy and it is also a test as to if a locality is ready for good things in life. Obviously, it has not gone down very well for businesses who have saw bikes being stolen, park errantly and such, but that hasn’t stop Singapore-based startup, Neuron Mobility, from taking a dip in this novel bike sharing market. Continue reading This Startup Wants You To Take On The Last Mile With Shared E-Scooters
At this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, BMW’s two-wheel division, BMW Motorrad, also has something to show off and it is a scooter-like electric two-wheeler called BMW Motorrad Concept Link Urban Mobility. It is, well, how do I say? Futuristic? I mean, it is nothing like somewhat Tron-ish BMW Vision Next 100, it is futuristic enough – lend to it by angular lines, electric drive, well connected, a windscreen that doubles as a display, and touch functionalities. Continue reading Concept Link Is A BMW Motorrad Vision Next 100-inspired, Ermmm, Scooter?
Billed as the world’s most portable electric scooter, the GoTube Super Portable Electric Scooter by Hong Kong-based East Go does not even look remotely like an electric scooter when folded down. In fact, this 12.8 lbs (5.8 kg) new kid in the electric mobility looks more like a yoga mat when kept inside the included hardshell sling case. Its ridiculous lightweight is afforded by a mostly aluminum construction with a generous use of carbon fiber, and while it may measures a tiny 74.3 x 13.7 cm (29.3 by 5.4 inches) when collapsed, and 74.2 x 41.5 cm (29.3 x 36.5 inches) when deployed, it is totally capable of taking a person of weight up to 150 kg (330 lbs). Continue reading Mind-blown: These Tubes Are Actually Folded Down Electric Scooters!
Good news, tree-hugging Vespa lovers, or rather, tree-huggers who was denied loving Vespa for the fuel it guzzles and smog it kicks out because Piaggio Group, the company behind the ever-loveable Vespa, has written a new future for this iconic scooter and it is an electric concept called Vespa Elettrica. You heard that right. Vespa is going electric and that’s a good news and a sign of the Italian scooter maker keeping up times. Finally, right? Cos’ if there’s any bike maker who has the financial to flex, it would be Piaggio, isn’t it? While going on the green route, the Italian bike maker isn’t sacrificing its iconic look; in fact, Piaggio promised it will still be a true Vespa and going so far to claim that the “style, agility, ease of use and riding please,” will not sway. Continue reading Vespa Goes Green With Planned Electrified Vespa, Arriving In 2017
You know those mobility scooters use by folks who have mobility issues? Yeah. Those three-wheeled electric vehicles. They aren’t exactly mobile, are they? I mean, stairs posed a major problem and so do getting on public transportations like buses and trains. Well, those, my friend, are problems eliminated if SunTech has its way. The company’s first product, eFoldi Multifunction Folding Electric Scooter, brings a whole new meaning to mobility. Why? Because it is lightweight, collapsible and easily lug along to make onto commercial airlines, trains and buses. Continue reading eFOLDi: Mobility Scooter Reinvented To Double As a Chair And a Suitcase
Skateboard, skatescooter (or kick scooter, as some calls it) and bicycle are transportations designed to get us to where we want to go quicker with less sweat. They are environmentally friendly and efficient so far, except that they lacks of the cargo area. For bicycle you can hook it with a basket or a trailer, but at the end of the day, it is not going to get into the train or public bus, nor will it fit in the trunk of your small hatchback and there are no obvious solutions other than to carry a backpack when you are on a scooter or skateboard. This first world woe is being tackled a group of industrial designs students at California State University, which they came up with the idea of a cargo scooter called Nimbus Classic two years ago.
