It’s easy to keep a spare under the seat.
We liked having the reverse switch,
which lets you back the scooter up
under power. It’s not full speed or full
power and it won’t take you up a hill,
but it’s really handy when parking the
bike, especially in tight spaces.
We found ourselves using it for
everything around town. It was a hoot
to ride! It was so quiet that we acciden-
tally snuck up on people, something
riders have to be aware of. It will make
you visit more friends and come up with
reasons to ride it. It’s American-made,
environmentally-friendly, just plain fun
and an incredible value.
There are dealers in California,
Michigan, Colorado, Washington,
Florida and Oregon, with new dealers
coming online as time goes on. You can
search for dealers for a test ride on their
website, www.genze.com. ■
The 16 k Wh battery fits
beneath the seat and
locks in with the key.
The C14 socket on the battery means you can charge it
with a common computer monitor cord. The handle is
padded for easy carrying of this 30-plus-pound beast.
Look at the details—not just the Z
in the brake rotors, but the steel
brake cables and clean routing.
