While the kickscooter has been around since the 1950s, a lot has changed since the days of push-power scooters that only kids played with. Fathers around New Zealand will remember buying a scooter for their kids, yet today’s kickscooter is electrically powered, not that you would know that if you saw one, at first glance, it looks like an ordinary scooter that you propel with one leg.
If you live in Wellington or Aukland, you’ve probably seen people using e-kickscooters to get around; silent, they can reach speeds of 25kph, and recharging is easy. If you are looking to acquire a state-of-the-art unit, you can shop for a kickscooter at AIC Motorsports, a leading NZ supplier of the best scooters, e-mopeds and go-karts.
The kickscooter is light and folds away so you can carry it on public transport; a state-of-the-art kickscooter would have the following features:
- Maximum speed of 25kph
- Maximum distance of 65km
- Integrated front and rear indicators
- Built-in charging indicator
- Maximum load 120kg
- Brakes front and rear
- LED front lights
- Customisable LED lighting
This little powerhouse is perfect for the city dweller who doesn’t want to use their car; together with buses, you can traverse the entire city quickly and cheaply. If you finish work late, you have full lighting to ensure visibility, which is essential for safety.
Some cities have incorporated kickscooter rental, which reduces the volume of people using public transport; simply use an app to locate a kickscooter station, and pay using a QR code, which releases the vehicle and put the kickscooter in the depot near your destination. There’s no easier way to navigate a city and the device folds up, allowing you to use buses, trams and trains.
Wherever you happen to live in New Zealand, there are online suppliers of top-rated kickscooters, with a diverse range of models to suit your lifestyle. Take your time, as there are many models on sale and if you have any questions, there is a live chat feature on the website.
If you are looking for a quick and inexpensive way to get around your city, look no further than a kickscooter.
