Gogoro electric scooters were already introduced to the public at the international motorcycle and scooter show in Milan in 2015 and now they are back to show the immense progress they've made in the past 2 years.
Taiwanese all-electric scooter Gogoro is the brain child of two tech enthusiasts who in the past played a key role in developing HTC smartphones. Today they are using their knowledge and experiences to work in the field of e-mobility.
The initial idea was to set up a network of electric charging stations, where e-scooter owners could simply change the empty batteries, mounted under the seat, with a fully charged set. The idea developed into a real project with some of the world's greatest cities already boasting an active network of Gogoro electric charging points - and, of course, quite a number of satisfied customers. How wouldn't they be happy - Gogoro is a very solid all-electric scooter with pretty good performance! Even the modern petrol engine scooters with 125ccm are given a run for their money when comapred to Gogoro scooters!
The second gen Gogoro scooter is powered by a 6.4 kW motor. It can go from 0 to 50 km/h in 4.3 seconds, has a maximum speed of 90 km/h and a range of 110km.
The good news is that the price of these scooters is expected to decrease by half very soon, but the bad news is that it won't be available in all European countries. Gogoro 2 is also a smart scooter. Its electronics are or can be connected with a smartphone, offering a number of exciting features - for example, you can arrange for the scooter's engine to start up only by using your fingerprint. In theory, the scooter is smart enough to not get stolen very easily - even if the thief got to your key, without a fingerprint the scooter wouldn't move an inch. So all scooter fans who had previously experienced having their vehicle 'taken away without asking' will surely appreciate this 'anti-theft' feature.
