Me Scooter

ME Scooter aims to synthesize several key modern concepts. First of all it aims to be a design object, where aesthetic issues also have practical and usability concerns, the ME Scooter also has a green side to it, thatīs why it uses electrical power to help you move around. And it also leaves you with some ways to express yourself because itīs fully customizable. The electric motor of 1.5 Kw will get a range of up to 80km, with a top speed of 45km/h, enough to go on regular urban trips, its charging time on the Li-ion Samsung batteries is around 5 hours. To get most out of its engine and ensure performance, weight reduction was key, so theyīve used SMC (Sheet Moulding Compound) as the main material on its frame, a synthetic thermosetting material thatīs lightweight, durable, corrosion resistant and with great mechanical and thermal properties. This Italian designed scooter is really a joy to look at and sure seems fun to ride around town.
