New York (The Verge) — Boosted’s first electric scooter is a $1,599 vehicle built to conquer city streets theverge.com/2019/5/15/1862….
Boosted, the company known for its electric skateboards, finally branches out into a new form factor. The Boosted Rev has a top speed of 24 miles per hour and a range of 22 miles.
Today, the company announced the Boosted Rev, a $1,599 dual-motor electric scooter that matches Boosted’s well-tested (and well-loved) electric drivetrain technology with a rugged frame meant to handle rides through basically every kind of rough terrain that a city can throw at a commuter.
Unlike the many other electric scooters currently flooding the streets and sidewalks (and, let’s face it, rivers) of cities around the world, Boosted only wants to sell the Rev directly to consumers — for now, at least. It’s available for preorder today, and it will ship this summer. — Sean O'Kane/@verge
