Schwalbe at Intermot

Keeping up with more Schwalbe news, I spent the last weekend in the German city of Koln at the Intermot motorcycle trade show. Having been at the past 4 EICMA’s in Milan, I’ve never been to Intermot due to it’s biennial event status. I was told it would be smaller, less important, etc. But I…

Deine Schwalbe

I’m guilty of neglecting this blog a little. Well, neglecting it a lot actually. And I’m not one to make excuses, it’s just that I’ve been pretty busy in other areas of my life. One such area is the Schwalbe scooter seen below. My role in this scooter is that of a project manager. I…

Hollywood Electrics

I stopped by Hollywood Electrics today to check out what the top electric mobility shop in the vast L.A. area had to offer. I’ve read plenty about Hollywood Electrics in the past year or so, and have followed their social media updates routinely. I especially like their “electric Tuesdays” night rides that group electric motorcycle…

ATX8080…but Why?

I’m a big electric scooter nerd, no need to go into details. So I was pretty happy to see a newcomer to the field called the ATX 8080 by Austin Electric Powersports; a frame only scooter reminiscent of the Honda Zoomer. Here are the two side by side, Zoomer on the bottom. Unfortunately the cool…

Charging at GOVECS

Galactico installed their charge station right in front of our GOVECS windows, and we couldn’t be happier to oblige and charge up our privately owned GOVECS scooters every day. It also makes for a pretty cool photo op as we get more and more visitors charging at this station. Last week we had client from…

Scroosing

This week GOVECS put together first pre-series test models for Scrooser. Owners of Scrooser were present as our engineers assembled, disassembled, tweaked, assembled again, repeat, etc… Scrooser scooters. The first are always the hardest, a learning experience in its own right when taking CAD modelled parts and assembling them together in real life. So hickups were…

Freeride Motocross, E-MX

KTM Freeride E is a 7.5kW electric motocross bike designed for quiet cross fun. This year, smack in the middle of Zolder Circuit, Clean Week 2020 organisers put together a first ever electric motocross event dubbed E-MX. Some took an issue with the “first ever” monicker, stating that it simply wasn’t a first at all.…

Tesla Fever at Clean Week 2020

Attending the CleanWeek2020 event in Zolder, Belgium you simply couldn’t help but notice the abundance of Tesla Roadsters. Even a couple of Model S made an appearance, but the roadster was to be seen all over the parking lot charging or racing on the track. Now there’s something to be said about Tesla Roadster racing;…

The Schwalbe Project

Earlier this month I picked up a Simson Schwalbe KR51 scooter as a winter restoration project. It won’t be just a restoration project per say, it’s going to be an electric conversion project as well. One of the perks of working for an electric scooter manufacturer is that I know just the right people that…

Snakeskin Electric

Riding an electric scooter is the most fun one can ever have on a scooter, period. It’s fast, quiet, and completely CO2 emissions free. Instant electric power translates into a holeshot take off every time the stop light turns green and the surprised look on car drivers faces is priceless as I silently coast by…
