It’s interesting that the more dangerous a vehicle looks the more fun it would seem to be to drive. The 3-wheeled Aphaenogaster scooter runs on a 24 volt battery which powers a 350 watt motor that can drive the Aphaenogaster to speeds of up to 15 mph with a range of about 8 miles.
The rider is kind of precariously perched on a seat above the back drive wheel and steers the whole thing with a simple control stick. A twist grip on the stick is used to control the proportional throttle and a seperate hand lever activates a rear disc brake. The scooter even has rear, side and headlights though I don’t think it will pass any street-legal inspections.
For now the Aphaenogaster is a working design prototype and is not available for sale.
