Small electric sit-down or stand-up vehicles ranging from motorized kick boards to electric mini motorcycles.
Differences between the two types of small electric scooters:
• Stand-up Scooters
Instead of pushing the scooter forward with one leg you simply turn the throttle on the handlebar and ride electrically. A typical stand-up scooter is a little more than one meter long and weights 12-25 kg.
• Sit-down Scooters
Small electric vehicles with a seat, are used much the same way as gasoline powered scooters. A throttle on the handlebar regulates the acceleration. Sit-down e-scooters are usually bigger and heavier than the stand-up types. The appearance and accessories vary from trendy and stylish products to ones with large seats and a big shopping basket.
