The electric scooter represents a good means of transport that above all in the city can replace the use of the car, avoiding traffic, not polluting, and why not, entertaining. Thanks to the bonus of up to 500 euros paid by the Italian government on the purchase of an electric scooter, the convenience becomes even more interesting. The problem remains: which one to buy? Among the various futuristic prototypes, the huge Chinese models or the “Best Buy” Amazon, the choice is very wide.
