    Meet a new bike lane friendly Scooter.


    The OjO Scooter I saw at Showstoppers at CES 2017 looks like a well-designed way to travel. It has a lot of features for under $2000. It's bike lane-friendly and offers zero emissions. Now I didn't get to ride one, but I did get info from the company spokesperson and fact sheets. It can quickly accelerate up to 20 MPH and go 25 miles on a single charge. It supports up to 300+ pounds, which OJO says it unique in this category. Requires no license. There's an onboard battery and patented charger with retractable cord and plug. You'll see the plug outlet in the video. Basically riders can charge the scooter at any standard 110V wall outlet. There are three speed modes levels for any rider: Eco Mode for beginners, Touring Mode to maximize distance and Sport Mode for peak performance. There are extras including dual integrated waterproof Bluetooth speakers, voice response system, LED front and rear lights, a USB port for charging phone, a motion activated alarm, wireless key fob and a patented removable seat system that converts the scooter into a stand up only experience. There is also an optional rear basket accessory for items riders need to carry. Available in seven colors. MSRP $1,999.99, Available on Amazon now and later this Spring at BestBuy.
