Scoot Electric Motorbike Insurance

Scoot Electric


The earliest reference to electric motorcycles can be found as early as 1860! In the 1920s Ransoms (forklift makers) explored electric motorcycles and in the early 1940s the fuel rationing in United States is what made Earle Williams convert a motorcycle to electric power. In 1941 Fuel rationing, again, encouraged Socovel, an Austrian Company to create a small electric motorcycle – about 400 of these were manufactured. Karl Kordesch created the first Fuel Cell powered electric motorcycle in 1967 and in the same year The Indian Motorcycle company created a moped size electric motorcycle prototype called “Papoose”.

Mike Corbin set the first electric motorcycle land speed record (101 mph) in 1973 and this is when the electric scooter was actually born, created! Corbin-Gentry Inc started selling street legal electric motorcycles in 1974 and wait for it…..In 1978 an Electric Harley Davidson MK2 was created by Transitron and manufactured in Honolulu!
However it was eyeball engineering who first caught public interest – their KawaSHOCKi electric Dragbike was featured in a major magazine (1988) and 1996 saw the first mass production of electric scooters starting with the release of Peugeot Scoot’Elec. History was made in 2009 when Zero Motorcycles hosted “The 24 hours of Electricross” – an all electric dirtbike race!

An Electric Scooter will give you freedom from congestion charges, it will help your pocket as its economical to run, it will make you proud as you are helping the environment and the best thing? You will be part of History!
