Groundbreaking transportation company Gogoro is at it again. Today, they are expanding their innovative scooter family with the Gogoro 2 Smartscooter. The new scooter will appeal to even more people, thanks to better ergonomics, more storage and seating space and customizability options. If you haven’t heard of Gogoro, the Taiwan-based company is kind of like the Tesla of two-wheeled transportation, with smart electric scooters, home batteries and a battery-swapping infrastructure that is changing the face of urban transportation.
The Gogoro 2 has all the features that makes the original Smartscooter great, but it adds more comfort, safety and control. It features a 6.4 kilowatt G2 motor with a high-performance electric powertrain with both Smart and Sport modes, so you can choose between range or speed.
The Smartscooter 2 introduces more seating and storage, so it is more comfortable and convenient to ride. It also has better handling, a new Synchronized Braking System and is just as easy to maintain as the original.
The LED lighting also gets an upgrade, along with a new color dashboard with a full LED display. You can also mount your device to the new dashboard for real-time riding info. And if you want to make your scooter all your own, you can choose from 6 exterior colors, 50+ accessories, and dynamically tune dashboard colors, sound themes and lighting patterns. And, of course, you get access to the Gogoro Energy Network.
Pricing starts at $1,295 in Taiwan after government subsidies, and the scooter comes in two models – The Gogoro 2 and the Gogoro 2 Plus – so you can choose how much you want to spend.
