Starting up the Maxi is a disconcerting affair â€“ switch the key on, hold the left brake lever in, touch the right brake to start the bike andâ€¦ Well, nothing happens. Itâ€™s completely silent. Only a large â€œGo!â€? on the well-designed instrument display gives away the fact that the powerâ€™s on.
The Vectrix electric scooter has been on the market for a while now, but this is the most thorough review we’ve seen. It’s clearly leagues above other electric bikes on the market and it features some innovative technology beyond the electric motor, but it sounds like it just can’t quite compete with a gas-powered scooter on price and performance. Kudos to Vectrix for trying though, it’ll only get better and better.
