Eagle – Thinnest and Lightest Electric Scooter Ever

Swiss and Lithuanian startup Citybirds has been making human-powered kickscooters for a few years now, but has revealed what it’s calling the “thinnest and lightest electric scooter” at the ISPO trade expo in Munich, Germany. Named the Eagle, the e-scooter will roll for up to 30 km and get up to 25 km/h, and a display on the handlebars will be able to sync with a smartphone to show navigation, weather and notifications. At this point, not a great deal is known about the Eagle. And though the company is claiming its stylish electric kickscooter is the world’s thinnest and lightest, no actual weight or dimensions figures have been revealed. We do know that it will have a range per charge of 15 km (9.3 miles) from the battery integrated into the deck, or twice that with the addition of an extra battery installed in the handlebar column – which the startup says is twice as long as many competitors.

As well as offering a top-up using a plug-in charger, the Eagle can also be juiced up via an induction charging plate. Citybirds suggests that a wireless charging unit could be placed in the trunk of a car on the way to a parking spot outside the city, and then the topped-up Eagle removed from the vehicle and trundled to the office. And the front wheel’s 36 V electric hub motor should get riders up to a top speed of 25 km/h (15.5 mph). The current prototype displayed at ISPO has been made from plastic, but the production model will be fashioned from carbon fiber. Like other Citybirds kickscooters, the deck of the Eagle folds up into the handlebar column – with the rear wheel popping into a space in the center. The Eagle’s curved design at the front wheel could also make between ride carrying a tad more comfortable thanks to its contoured shape fitting nicely on the shoulder.

A display screen at the handlebar shows performance info, and turn-by-turn directions, but can also act as a second smartphone screen over Bluetooth, showing such things as the weather perhaps, or social media notifications, or even just a clock face. The Eagle launched at ISPO Munich earlier this week, though is still very much in the development stage – and the company told us that it will likely be at least another year before the Eagle finally lands. There are a number of electric kickscooters already available of course, including the Stealthy Scooter for two riders, but you can get a taste of what the Eagle has to offer in the video below.

Modern Vespa ‘Sei Giorni’ – New Generation of 50’s Iconic Scooter

Vespa’s new special edition named ‘Sei Giorni’, which translates to ‘Six Days’, celebrates the original Vespa sport scooter that won nine gold medals at the international six days of varese in 1951.

The Vespa ‘Sei Giorni’ comes outfitted with a seat upholstered in fine, black leather with contrast stitching, and it comes with the same olive green livery as the sport scooter from the 1950’s. A set of blacked-out rims, exhaust, and details including a round number holding plate, and iconic ‘Six’ badges make this scooter truly stand-out from its trusted counterparts. A small plaque with the model’s serial number, plus a USB port located inside the luggage compartment, ABS, and LED lights complete the ‘Sei Giorni’s’ refinements.

Riders can customize their scooter by adding a windshield, front and rear luggage racks, a 42-liter bag, anti-theft devices, a thermal covering, or even a Tom Tom ‘VIO’ scooter GPS unit. The ‘Six Days’ is powered by a 300 cc euro4-compliant liquid cooled four-stroke engine that can create 21 hp, and 22 Nm of torque at 5000 rpm, while it also comes with an electric starter, a twist-and-go transmission, and an 8.5-liter fuel tank as standard.

Concept of One-Wheel Electric Scooter
from RYNO Motors

RYNO Motors has developed the world’s first self-balancing one wheel electric scooter. The scooter has a range of about 30 miles and can hit a top speed of 25mph. It weighs a mere 125 pounds and can support a rider weight of 250lbs. Multiple sensors constantly monitor the balance of the motorcycle during the movement and control system is ready to seize control of the bike if the driver ignores the warning and, for example, exceeds the maximum permissible speed or bends the car under a dangerous angle. There is also a system for monitoring the battery status (LiFePo4, by the way). When the battery level drops to 25%, the system warns the driver signal is yellow, up to 5% – red. It is assumed that the model will cost $3500.
