The ET Scooter and friends

Via the Dealer News site, we have another candidate for Silly Scooter of the Year: the ET Scooter, which you can see at the Dealer Expo in Chicago.  Continuing our bemused befuddlment with this market segment, and our incorrigible curmudgeonly ways, we didn’t get too much past the 11ah batteries giving us 21 miles of range on a full charge claim.  Oh well.

Who are these guys?  From the About Us page:

The ET Scooter

Decidedly not exclusively EV, or even single-product oriented.

We had to pull specs from the Dealer News site, since the only thing under the “Products” link was an order button for the ET Scooter, so here’s what they had:

  • Weight: 66 pounds
  • Range: 21 miles
  • Top Speed: 21 mph
  • Brakes: Mechanical Disk

And yes, our first question answered – where does the rider stand?  “When riding, the rider rests his or her feet on two foot pegs located near the rear wheel.”

So this is all bringing us down to the aforementioned “Silly Scooter of the Year” soon-to-be-a-real-contest.  What do you think the rules should be?  Categories?  Or just, flat-out silliness?  We are thinking there should certainly be a Grand Prize of Awesomeness for “The Scooters that Actually Get Sold and Delivered and Ridden”.

The YikeBike is pretty odd, in that it’s basically an electric Penny Farthing, you ride with the handlebars positioned directly behind you…
