I hate to break this to you, regular Motorcycle.com reader, but you might be the wrong audience for the GenZe 2.0 electric scooter. How do I know? Well, if you’re here then you appreciate the speed, the sound, and the power (both mechanical and personal) motorcycling provides. The triple threat is an addictive combination to stir the emotions. The GenZe 2.0 doesn’t have any of that.
To keep it technically classified as a moped, 30 mph is the fastest it’ll go. Since it’s electric, it hardly makes a sound. And, according to GenZe, with a 170-lb rider it’ll take 10 seconds for the aluminum scoot to hit 30. So, power is scant, too. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate – the GenZe 2.0’s motor is rated to produce max torque of 74 lb-ft. It’ll easily go faster than 30, but it’s electronically governed to stop there. Any more and Uncle Sam will want GenZe to meet homologation standards and Johnny Law will require you to get a motorcycle license. As it stands, in many states if you have a license to drive a car then you can ride this scooter. In California, however, you’ll need an M2, or moped license.
