REVIEW: Terra Motor Electric Scooter Is Nice Ride

Akihabara News reviews Terra Motor's A4000i electric scooter, which will be exported to the Philippines, France, India and possibly Holland.

At first glance it looks exactly like its press images. “That’s the point of press images, fool!” cried the readers.

To their credit, Terra Motors has made the A4000i just look as sexy in person as it does online (as sexy as a scooter can be anyway). It has presence. Its design is original enough to stand out amongst other scooters, but traditional enough that nobody would mistake it for anything than what it is. The pearl white did well capturing what little light was available, and the blue accents just work.
