RION MOTORS (Studio City, California)
we have never witnessed before. With the RION Re90, to the all new RION THRUST– to the first all in-house, fully American made– RION APEX and the most powerful and most innovative HyperScooter ever created– The RION NOIR (notice the backward spelling of RION on its name).
We have been wowed so many times by the incredible creations of RION, Founder and Creator– Gal Thompson. The all New RION APEX is one that I think will impact Micro Mobility PEV manufacturing and demand for a long long time. The first RION HyperScooter, competitively priced to reach the masses (people who couldn't purchase a RION before, now able to actually get their hands on one of the highest coveted Electric Scooters of all time.
We Congratulate Gal Thompson and his incredibly talented Staff of Mind blowing Geniuses for your selfless and consistent commitment to bringing a standard of excellence to the Micro Mobility Electric Scooter segment of our Scootciety™ that has been and is to date– unmatched.

What A Year!
When it comes to Electric Scooter Advancement, Innovation, Production, Fulfillment Issues, Defects and the likes– 2021 was the year for blessing and curse. We had our ups, and we had our downs but in the end, we had an exciting year.
There were many positive events that we can honestly hold our heads high and say there was advancement. Most of this celebration comes from an amazing innovative year. Consumers pushed Manufacturers to really take a good hard look at the way they produce our eScooters. Most of them really stepped up and then there were some that dropped the ball. The important thing with those who dropped the ball was their ability to self correct, improve and bounce back with Consumer awareness at the forefront of their improvement.
There was ONLY one Manufacturer that went against the grain by refusing to consider Consumer Satisfaction and that was Bronco Motors. They really had the opportunity to deliver one of the Best, if not the Best design of them all but controller and step down issues were so over whelming that they decided to sacrifice the Consumer, leaving many to fend for themselves.
Nami, Apollo and Kaabo experienced issues but they focused on the big picture (Consumer Satisfaction) and resolved their issues and took care of the Consumers at the same time. Kudos to these Guys for doing it right.
Then you had those step up to the plate Vendors who definitely held great responsibility in those Manufactures bouncing back successfully. Though you may be a Consumer who do not care for these two Vendors, you have to applaud them for rescuing these Manufacturers in a critical time of dyer need, and they are VoroMotors and FluidFree Ride (Melvin and Julian) they stepped up big time. I have to also give it to Apollo being both, Vendor and Manufacturer– they pushed forth major action and correcting their break out Apollo Phantom with the V2. These Guys always step up and do the right thing by Consumers.
I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking and saying... I can't wait to see what 2022 will bring by way of innovation, improvements and risk taking. Consumers are looking for some industry basics (like every eScooter coming Standard with (5) five basic safety features: Headlight, front/rear Facing Turn Signals, Tail Light, Brake Light and a Horn) as well as evolving to the acceptance of the proven efficiency of The Sinewave Controller, Never Flat Tires and 84V Battery with boosted (Amp-Hour) capacity, better Kickstands, Forged Aluminum Chassis, Forks, Arms and advanced– larger TFT displays... also including some effective waterproofing can really bring us up to date with eScooter R&D to execution. I think 2022 will be the year for a very forward thinking Creator with ground breaking Customer Care at the front of their processes.
So here's to a great future in Micro Mobility PEV (especially eScooters) and a growing, more inclusive and aware Consumer Base who thinks more of Industry Advancement and Sustainability than personal thrills and going against the grains of compliance.
I have been a Two Wheel enthusiast for decades. Now COVID has driven me to a love that I may not've ever fancied... eScooters.
