On page 30 of this issue you’ll find a report from the
EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy, where we found
a wide selection of exciting, new, electric-powered bicycles, scooters and motorcycles. Of them all, the Gogoro
scooter (page 37) was among the most impressive newcomers. Owing to its origins as the brainchild of some
proven and well-placed tech minds, the scooter itself is
chock-full of features, including a lightweight, aluminum
monocoque frame, performance suspension, and an array
of mobile-interface options.
Beyond the scooter, Gogoro is also pioneering a new
level of power-supply networks with their Gostations,
where riders can swap for fresh batteries. In short,
Gogoro is another upstart brand looking to remake the
urban transportation paradigm as we know it.
