RE-PLY electric scooter is designed as a last-mile transport solution. It's a suitable companion in the city environment due to its weight, dimensions and auxiliary electric drive.
This is a completely different philosophy, compared to the existing solutions. Instead of using a heavy powertrain, there is a light LiPo battery placed inside the neck of the scooter. The assisted cruising range is 9-12 km, less then competitive scooters, but the footboard height is then 8cm, enough for a comfortable non-electric ride without compromises. The brushless 1kw hub motor is fitted in the rear wheel, but there is an option of accomodating off-the-shelf RC motor in the modified rear fender.
The overall shapes are determined by looking for a compromise between performance, portability, comfort, economy and style.
