Out of Business for all Practical Purposes...

Current has moved on. They now manufacture "mini scooter fleets in a solar-powered box" - four of their new heavy duty scooters in a self-contained shipping container sized fold-out solar-panel box to charge them. The primary client base being governments (notably Brazil) and possibly the oil exploration business. After a very long shakedown, my C124 model is now quite reliable but does require a fair amount of attention. I am probably the only user with the hardware and software needed to load and configure the BCU software - which has gotten corrupted a couple times. Support for the existing scooters seems to be tenuous. I still can't get them to provide some basic control wiring and pinout information.

Worlds longest range electric motor scooter

If you want range, the worlds champion is the ZEV LRC. 140 miles at 55 mph driving. The company makes a lot of bikes with 80 mile range at highway speeds, more distance at less speeds.

wow the first electric

wow the first electric scooter that can travel up to 30 miles. But the price makes me nervous. I prefer something cheaper, under 500 bucks.

Nice try

These Chinese scooters cost about $1495.00 with gas engine. Loose the engine gas tank and radiator. Install a hub electric motor, controller, batteries and misc gauges. A DIY project for less than two grand.

The range of 85 miles that

The range of 85 miles that Extreme publishes is inaccurate. I used to own an X-treme XM-3150 electric scooter and they advertised 55 mile range but real would range was less than half of that. I think the numbers they use is a test when going all down hill, at 25 mph, no stops and with the wind at your back.

Real Life Range

I own the Current Motors Deluxe and drive it 46 miles to work with a 1000 foot elevation change. I weigh 210 lbs and the average speed is around 40 mph with lots of stop and go traffic/hard acceleration and braking. It uses about 3/4 of the charge to make the trip. The bike goes well over 65 mph and is very stable. Not too quick off the line but with lots of torque above 20 mph. The X-treme XM-5000 Li is not in the same league. It may be good for putting around town though.

Same doubt as above comment...

Bumping it up: so, is it a 50 or 80 miles range? In my case that makes all the difference as my commute has 60 miles... :)
