description

As Seen On Sky News! Scooters rule. Ask anyone who owns one and they'll tell you how they make mincemeat of traffic jams, blow raspberries at parking restrictions, laugh in the face of congestion charges and zip from A to B faster than you can yell 'mind the doors'.

Ego Electric Street Scoota

Electric powered:
no exhaust needed!

The only downer is these jam-busting two-wheelers run on petrol; icky, planet-hating gloop that's becoming so taxman-punchingly expensive even smug scooterists are feeling the pinch. So stand back, grab hold of your helmet and prepare to have your flabber completely gasted by the battery-powered Ego Street Scoota.

It might look like a hip, twist-and-go commuter scooter - and it is - but this fully road legal steed is also 100% electric. Do not adjust your eyes, we said it's 100% electric. No fumes, no noise, no emissions and no visits to the gas station. You don't even have to fork out on road tax and parking is free in a lot of cities. Incredible, especially seeing as the Street Scoota costs under a grand *cue sound of eyeballs plopping out and jaws plummeting to the ground*.

Ego Electric Street Scoota

Make your city clean!


Ego Electric StreetScoota

Top speed: 30mph

With a top speed of 30mph, the Street Scoota is nigh on as nippy as a 50cc petrol-driven splutterer. In fact, despite a lack of castrated wasp-style engine noise, it feels virtually the same to ride. This is thanks to a powerful 1400 watt motor that delivers ample torque to zip past stroppy cab drivers, pull away from bozo bus drivers and whirr around weeping motorists. Traffic? What traffic?

Getting started...

Ego Electric Street Scoota

Insert the charging connector and plug into your mains socket...

Check the charging lights on the
control panel...

Now go hit the
road jack!


*10p is an approximate cost based on an 8 hour charge

Charging the Street Scoota couldn't be easier. Just plug it into the nearest mains socket. Yes, really. It's that simple. An eight hour charge gives around 40 miles of eco-friendly scootering, but a three hour quick charge is more than enough to get you from A to B, or even C to Z, in any UK city.

Ego Electric Street Scoota


You won't have to worry about hefty bills because this hi-tech bike costs a forehead-slappingly measly 10p to charge. That's around ¼p per mile. You'll spend ten times that on deodorant if you continue squishing in with the sweaty lemmings on the train. Mmmm...armpits and morning breath.

Ego Electric Street Scoota

Room for your
favourite jumper!

Designed and made in China, where electric scooters are already huge, the beautifully engineered Street Scoota is set to reign supreme across the bumper-to-bumper streets of Blighty, particularly in London and other urban areas with increasingly draconian traffic regulations. Post-commuting stress disorder, pricey travelcards and rocketing fuel costs will soon become distant memories. Nice.

We honestly think this two-wheeled wonder is one of the greatest products ever to grace our (not so) humble site. So what are you waiting for? Hit the Buy button and get your motor hummin'.

Scooter Registration Process:

Very Important. Please read the information included in the following link (Download Registration Process PDF 2.6 MB), which covers the registration process and the steps YOU need to take to register your Scoota:

Before you can ride your new Street Scoota on public roads it needs to be registered with the DVLA (this includes obtaining a tax disc and having a registration plate fitted). Firebox can help make the process easier. You will need to send the relevant paperwork to the DVLA (full details on what you need to do can be found in the 'Registration Process' link above) and then the documents you need to produce a number plate will be returned by post within approximately 10 working days.


Please Note: Once you register the Scoota you are no longer eligible to return it as Unwanted within the normal '7 working day cooling off period'. More info in the 'Delivery and returns' section below.

Delivery and returns:
  • Delivery will be around 2 weeks (immediate stocks). The registration process will take a further (approximate) 10 days. This will allow you to inspect the bike, make sure you are happy with it and then return it, if not satisfied, before taking the final step.
  • The Ego Street Scoota is exempt from our usual 30-day Returns Policy; The returns period is limited to seven working days following the day of receipt as per the right to cancel under the European Distance Selling Regulations, and you shall be responsible for the cost of return.

    This does not affect your statutory rights.
Returns Waiver:
  • There is normally a 7 working day cooling off period to allow for the decison to return this product (if you change your mind etc), however please note that once the Scoota becomes registered, it is then not possible to return this product as unwanted. This does not affect your statutory rights. If you decide categorically that you do not want to return the Scoota within this period and therefore do not want to have to wait for the 7 days to elapse, please contact Firebox at info@firebox.com.

Is this product ever going to be re-launched?
Matthew, Bath - 23rd February 2011
Firebox says: Not through us, sorry Matthew.
Scoota bought new but finding it very expensive to insure to allow me to get it registered.
David Jacobs, Glasgow - 15th February 2011
I'm a bit apprehensive about having to change the batteries every 18 months, how much do they cost and will I likely have to change all three at once?
Bruce, Surrey - 13th May 2010
Firebox says: This product is no longer available. Sorry!
Does this have an alarm or just steering lock?
Sean, Newport - 4th May 2010
Firebox says: This is now discontinued we're afraid.
Can you get a spare charger for say a work place or is the charger small enough to take in a ruck sac? Or do you just need a cable as the charge unit is on the bike. Not to clear in blerb. Ta.
Rob, Essex - 26th October 2009
Firebox says: You would need to take the charger and cable with you, but it fits easily under the seat, Rob.
Can anyone tell me where you can order parts or get these serviced? Cheers.
Gill, Glasgow - 5th October 2009
Firebox says: Depends on the parts you'd need (drop us a line on info@firebox.com for more information) - for a general service, most motorcycle repair shops will service the Ego.
