Unagi has announced the launch of its new flagship electric kick scooter model Eleven. This premium kick scooter has been listed on crowdfunding platform Indegogo for a starting price of $2,440 (approximately Rs 1,80,740). This is the price of the base model. Its premium variant has been priced at $2,860 (about Rs 2,11,852). There is no doubt that this price is too high for an electric kick scooter. However, the company has equipped this scooter with a strong design and many great features.
The Unagi Model Eleven comes with an in-built Bluetooth speaker, so that you can listen to music or podcasts as well as listen to the system sound in it through the speaker. For example, the company has given a GPS navigation feature in partnership with Google, whose sound you can hear with the help of this speaker. It is equipped with mobile connectivity and the user can access many features associated with the e-scooter on his Android or Apple device by installing a special app in the mobile phone.
The smart e-scooter also has an anti-theft feature. It has a motion sensor alarm, which sends a notification to the user through the app when an outsider tampers with the scooter. The user can also lock the scooter by turning it off through the app. Its premium model also includes the ADAS sensor, which can tell the user the difference between a human, a stop sign, a stoplight, a car and many other objects. It can also warn the user of a possible collision through both the audio system and the touchscreen display. The scooter is foldable and comes with puncture-proof tyres.
As reported by The Verge, the scooter is capable of hitting a top speed of 19mph (30kph) and offers five different riding modes. A maximum range of 15 miles (about 24 kilometers) can be covered on a full charge of the battery pack present in it. It has a dual-motor system, which is capable of generating 250W of power. There is a swappable battery system, which means that the user can carry an extra battery pack with him so that he does not have to worry about running out of battery mid-way.
