Is there a new type of scooter on the horizon?
According to Kartik Ram, iTank or the three-wheeled scooter is the future. Ram is the CEO of Bikester Inc., the parent of Doohan USA. Currently, The Doohan EV3 iTank is in the Kickstarter phase with 12 backers and only 10 days to go. Already over the goal of $7,998, it’s moving forward. The Doohan EV3 iTank’s motor goes from 0-28 mph in 4.6 seconds. It has removable lithium-ion batteries that fully charge in 6 hours with a range of 60 to 100 miles.
Use the iTank for neighborhood cruising, light trails, and places where you wouldn’t want to use a car. And also when you don’t want to walk. This three-wheeled scooter is prominent in China and India but in the U.S., scooters are perceived to be too dangerous. So having an extra wheel will give the extra sense of stability without being heavy as a four-wheeler or a golf cart.
The KickStarter states it is, “The world’s first luxury three-wheeled electric scooter priced affordably yet extremely well-built”. Price ranges for three-wheeled scooters already differ. The iTank being the most affordable at $5,000 and the most expensive around $25,000 from Harley-Davidson. The one thing that doesn’t change is the type of tires. They are still tube tires and Stop & Go products will work to fix any flats.
