There are a ton of these bright green buzz bombs beetling around town these days. Zapp they are called and that's what they are doing, offering competition to traditional gas powered scooters.
Apparently you can buy these machines too and own them for yourself. Like this white one showing no signs of being a rental:
Tesla is also making electric cars viable while encouraging the construction of the charging infrastructure. Rider magazine organized a tour of California using n electric Zero motorcycle over several days. So we are getting that much closer to making electric vehicles viable as all rounders. I've heard it said there may soon be batteries that fast charge making refueling almost like pumping a tank full of gas. That will be an interesting change.
I grew up with internal combustion and I like it. I see the rounded shapes and smooth compound curves of a scooter and I like what I see. Yes I now they need gas and oil and so forth but they deliver so much and with so little effort. I am glad I grew up in the era of gasoline.
