CNET UK Reviews Govec's Go! S1.2 Electric Motor Scooter

All-electric scooter has performance comparable to 50cc gasoline model and is priced at £2,999.

Published: 18-Nov-2010

Electric cars are fairly common news these days, but the popularity of electric mopeds is on the rise. One of the main protagonists in this arena is Govecs, a Germany-based electric mobility company that produces the Go! range. We had the opportunity to test its Go! S1.2 recently, a £2,999 scooter in the same performance bracket as a 50cc scooter. Here's how it fared.

Grand design

The Go! S1.2 is a fairly typical-looking scooter. It's not as attractive and stylish as a Vespa, but unlike electric cars, which tend to look ridiculous in comparison to their petrol counterparts, the Go! S1.2 looks fairly normal. In fact, if it weren't for the "Electric" motif scrawled on the side of the fairing, the absence of an exhaust pipe and the complete lack of any noise, one could be forgiven for thinking it was a traditional petrol model.
