Electric scooters (distant cousins of motorcycles and scooters) have become one of the most popular solutions to move around the city quickly, easily and safely, at least as regards Coronavirus infection, since they allow you to avoid (or in any case reduce) the use of public transport. The government also likes them, given that they are part of the relaunch decree which provides for an incentive to purchase up to a maximum of 500 euros (we talk about it here). The small size and the possibility of folding them on themselves to load them in the car trunk also makes them perfect for commuters: once the car is parked, the scooter is “opened” and off you go. Are you thinking about it? Here are some very interesting models.
