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'.
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*.
Make your city clean!
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?

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.
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.

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.
