There are Electric Scooters, and then there are Electric Bikes. The X-Treme XB-508 looks like a small motorcycle, runs on electricity, and has pedals so it can be considered an "electric bicycle". There is a federal "Electric Bike Law" and it basically states that electric bikes obey and follow the same rules as a pedal bicycle without an engine. This means that you can ride an electric bike on the street, and take up a whole lane if you choose. This particular scooter has
550 watts of motorized power, and will take riders 20 miles distance at speeds up to 20 mph. The Electirc bike law states that e-bikes should not exceed 20 mph, and have an electric motor of less than 1000 watts. If you are looking for a really fun way to get to work, school, libraries, stores, or just to cruise around and have a good time, these electric bikes are a green, fun, and inexpensive way to do so. The cost to charge the electric bike for one ride is pennies, and you will be helping the environment by getting one more car off the streets too.
