Boosted Rev Electric Scooter
When you look at it, it will appear to be more off electric bike than a scooter. The frame is a combo of 6061-T6 extruded aluminum and forged parts, making a super-solid ride. The plank area is spacious, with a touch of give for comfort, but it’s a far cry from the bounciness of Boosted’s longboards. The two in-wheel 750-watt motors seem quieter than the boards as well,
On the other hand, it has dual-wheel drive, is able to travel up to 24 mph with a range of 22 miles, and climb and descend 25%-grade hills. This electric scooter also comes with three ways to brake, though, Boosted is confident people will only really use one.

That means a published 1.5 kW of continuous power, and in all likelihood a true peak power value north of 2 kW.
