Vectrix is finally ready to release their Electric Maxi-Scooter. After ten years in the making, the scooter is poised to be unveiled at the 64th International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan this November. The website’s main page prominently reads: Cool people ride electric; and as presumptuous as it may sound, it just might be true.  The world’s first high performance electric scooter is comparable to a 400cc gas-powered maxiscooter, topping out at 62mph in just under 6 seconds. The Nickel Metal Hydride battery pack takes about two hours to charge and is designed for 1,700 cycles – each charge will get you about 68 miles before needing to power up again.  On top of the money saved on gas, only 250 parts in the whole machine (compared to 2,500 in gas powered scooters) keeps production costs and maintenance to a minimum.
