Ezip E1000 Electric Scooter


Remember the scooters we wanted Santa to bring us  as kids ? This is nothing like that.

The Ezip E1000 scooter,  Currie technologies high speed cruiser has got what you want.  It’s the freedom of bicycling, without the legwork.  With 1000 watts of power, you flip it on and it gets you moving you at speeds  up to 15 miles per hour with a range of up to 12 miles, That’s like riding from Midtown  to the Bronx and back.  Its front and rear end suspension help smooth  the city streets, hills are not a challenge, and its disc brakes make stopping in short distances sure.

Utility is the key to this ride. The scooter will make your daily errands a snap, get you to that rooftop party on time, or have you zooming down city’s bike lanes (breezing past the bicyclists without breaking a sweat). Get one for a friend, but you know you really want it for yourself!

Currie technologies manufactures electric bikes, scooters, and kits to retrofit your bicycle with an electric motor. Their models come  in all shapes and sizes , from the sleek Izip Express ,  the BMX styled Via Urbano, and the  Izip Urban Cruiser with a range of up to 30 miles.
