ME electric scooter, price
The price is around 3,670 euros, it may seem like a price a little high for one scooter with performance comparable to that of a 50 cc motor. but not only are the technologies used incomparable, the operating prices and functions are also different.
A 49cc Honda NSC 50R is proposed at price of about 2,300 euros, over 1,000 euros less but it will be necessary to add the management costs that include the ownership tax (in most Italian regions the stamp duty on electric scooters you do not pay) and the very high insurance (salty for thermal scooters at 50cc but discounted at 50% for electric scooters how MYSELF). As for the management costs in fuel expenses, we will again take the Honda NSC50R as an example. The 50cc Honda scooter covers 49 km per liter on the medium cycle, which corresponds to a range of approximately 269 km with a 5.5 liter tank of fuel. A full tank of petrol costs 10 euros. A full electric of the electric scooter ME it can cost around 2.30 euros, so with 10 euros of electric fuel you can travel about 435 km.
