Stator Scooter is an entirely new electric scooter for the modern world. The simplified self balancing design is even more simple to get on and ride. With RFID keyless start-up, simply step on pull the throttle and go. At the end of your ride step off and walk away and the scooter will automatically turn off. Oversized wheels give amazing stability at low and high speeds. A hub-mounted electric motor offers extreme off-the-line torque and speeds up to 20 mph with optional 10-25-mile range. Rear wheel regenerative braking pairs with a front-wheel hydraulic disc brake. High output lithium batteries located in the base power an efficient 1000W motor. A quick-folding handlebar gives the scooter pack-ability for easy storage and transport. Additionally, the bar adjusts to varying degrees for rider comfort. Stator offers a one sided oversized exposed frame design that can be customized with a seat, fenders, racks, headlight, and bags for the user needs. Uses include recreation, transportation, and utility. Riding Stator gives you the feeling you are riding a magic carpet.
