Electric scooter review: EVT 168
My Verdict of this Electric Scooter.The EVT 168 was the second scooter I tried when I visited Green Machines in Dublin. It is built by EVT Technology Ltd. - a company set up in Taiwan in 1999. It's based on the Italian Vespa styling and looks very nice - even VERY PRETTY!
Like other electric scooters - there is no electric starter or kick start needed for an electric engine which is great as after driving a petrol moped I realise it's the hardest part is getting it started.
Like the EVT4000e it has a top speed of 45-55 Km/Hr and a range of 40-50Km before you need to charge up again. The charge time is 4-6 hours then which you can easily charge at night.
However, there were some drawbacks though to the EVT 168 - the biggest one being that, for me, it is a fairly small scooter and turning is hard (my knees get in the way). Probably the biggest problem is again like the EVT4000e and a lot of the smaller Electric Scooters, when they get to a hill of 14° the top speed is only 10Km/hr which really won’t cut it where I live.
But also has major drawbacks:
So - those last two points mean that it's not for me!
