I like the looks of this one: (Link Removed - No Longer Exists)
I especially like the flat-free tires, shocks, handlebar mounted cupholder and the shopping basket that you can leave on the scooter while wheeling it through the store.

It would seem that there is a lot of possibility in what is called last mile commuting solutions. Someone who rides a bus or train may not really need a full on ebike, but just something to carry them the last mile or few miles to the workplace.

Here is a review of the Urb-E: https://cleantechnica.com/2015/11/18/the-electric-urb-e-is-the-fun-last-mile-commute-solution/

And for something much more substantial and stylish, and yet seemingly well priced at about $2600 to $3200:

In Taipei where the company is located, they have "gostations" where you can pull up and swap your batteries for a freshly charged pair:

If that Gogoro scooter actually comes to the US and sells for the current price or even up to $4000, it makes you wonder about the pricing on a lot of ebikes. That seems like a lot of machinery and technology for the price compared to the average ebike. Every part was designed from the ground up, it has a state of the art suspension, faired body, mirrors, cargo space, digitally optimized performance to increase speed and range, 60 mph top speed, built in lights, turn signals, brake lights and custom digital display, connected app that lets you track your rides and do diagnostics, smart learning sytem that optimizes performance and range based on your riding style, integrated security system, belt drive, 2 year warranty, roadside assistance, battery swapping stations in some cities, 60 mile range at 25 mph, two batteries, and more. Imagine how much an ebike would cost with all of these features!

I wish this company would make an ebike! Or at least sell this scooter in the US sooner rather than later. The next market will be Amsterdam.
