The first of its kind Safe Rider Challenge for electric scooters was hosted by MOBOT. It was held at the Suntec Convention hall last Sunday (6th Nov 2016) with an amazing turn out of participants. The safe rider challenge places participants’ road safety knowledge and electric scooter technical control to the test.
“Roads have pedestrians, cars, motorcycles and e-scooters. We should all learn to respect one another on the road so that’s why I think this event was great.” – Jackson Chan
The company had their first trial run using Mobot scooters at Republic Polytechnic in August. Over the two-day trial, 202 trips were made.
Brandon Lee, an 18-year-old student, said: “I was very disappointed when I heard that it was the last day of the trial. I want this service to launch quickly so I can subscribe as soon as possible.”
He wanted to provide people with an affordable, convenient and fun mode of transportation.
“The waiting time for bus plus travelling time (from home to office) is around 35 minutes, but it only takes around seven minutes with an e-scooter,” said Mr Ifrey Lai, 46, who uses his e-scooter to travel from his home in Upper Paya Lebar to his office in the Ubi industrial area.
ELECTRIC scooter manufacturer MOBOT has a new innovation perfect for long distance riders. The MOBOT Freedom Chaser boasts an Intelligent Accelerator System that allows the personal mobility device to accelerate to one of three preset speeds while maintaining that speed throughout the journey without needing to press and hold the throttle.
Electric scooter (e scooter) increases after new rules for e-bike kicks in.
Scoot, e-bikes. E-scooters have become more popular with consumers here, in tandem with a decline in interest in motorised bicycles.
Some shops now sell hundreds of e-scooters (electric scooter) a month, while sales of e-bikes are negligible.
Retailers say stricter rules on e-bikes, which took effect last December, have dampened interest in the devices and driven consumers to seek e-scooters instead.
