The little scooter that could. This baby turns out to be a real hill climber. I've got my waxed cotton rain gear on to cut the windchill factor. Top speed of 23 mph with a range of 15 miles which is about all you would want to go sitting on one. It has two lead acid battery, but you can add another (behind your feet) for longer range. Costs a little over $1,000 which makes it the best deal in decently made two wheeled electric transport.
