With top-notch construction quality, ABS braking, ASR traction control, and trailblazingly reduced emissions, there’s at least a six pack of reasons to consider this scooter for your urban lifestyle. Ah yes, six packs; another thing you’ll have to add to your supermarket-not-gas-station shopping list.

Scrooser: Get Your Kicks On Plump Tires

The electric scooter gets a serious style upgrade with the new Scrooser ($3,950). You can stand or sit on it, and the power that comes from your traditional scooter kicks to the ground are amplified by the direct-drive 1,000-watt electric motor. When a burst of speed of at least 2 mph is generated by the rider, the motor delivers its own boost of four times the power. The maximum speed is 15 mph, and the juice is generated by a removable 48-volt/20-Ah lithium-ion battery pack. Besides the fat — um, sorry — pleasantly plump tires, there’s also integrated LED daytime running lights and a steel cable lock built into the frame.
