    Kymco Ionex battery-swapping system

    This is kind of interesting for urban travel, but I don't know about having those battery charging/swapping kiosks in public areas. Unfortunately, there tends to be a lot of random vandalism in big cities. Cute scooter, though: http://www.motorcycle.com/mini-featu...announced.html

    They're going after Taiwan's Gogoro. Taiwan is a really interesting market in that it has the highest per-capita scooter ownership in the world. All 4 stroke. There is some adoption of Chinese e-scooters but there's also Gogoro which is a really slick e-scooter company. They have battery swap kiosks all over the major cities. Taiwan is a very lawful country so having these in public is no problem. Plus, they tend to be inside of convenience stores and the like, not just on the street.

    I'd guess that most of the ICE scooters there are Kymcos so it makes sense that they'd go after this hard.
