How much lighter and how much farther? Well, with the 4 li-ion pack option you can get up to 28 miles in economy mode which makes the machine weigh in at 48 lbs. (The lead acid version is 67 lbs.) That's far enough to get most people to work or school and light enough to fold and carry up a flight of stairs if you have to. Top speed is 20 mph and this baby can climb some hills. If you don't like standing on your scooter there is a seat available, as well as a basket. For bigger loads they even have a "Go-Wagon" available. Unfortunately, they don't give them away for free and this made-in-America scooter runs between $1,006.88 and $2,998 depending on the model and battery option. While not cheap, hopefully they prove the adage, "You get what you pay for." Bonus video after the break.
