Electric Moped Launch Targeted to Capture a New Wave of Commuters and Green Enthusiasts

Share Article

Americans are looking for ways to combat the rising cost of gas and to "go green".

The new X-Treme Scooters XM-5000Li electric moped combines extreme power, excellent features and an appealing design to attract people who want to commute to work, who want to "be green" and who still want to maintain their personal freedom.

This new model from X-Treme scooters arrives at a time when President Obama is asking the government to develop new, cleaner and more efficient energy initiatives and to re-examine tougher emissions standards for motor vehicles.

The XM-5000Li, an electric moped/motorcycle capable of traveling 60 miles per hour, can operate for 90 miles on a single electrical charge. It can reach this top speed in 6 seconds or less. This makes commuting to work viable for anyone. This motorcycle is equipped with 21 lithium batteries. These batteries have a life cycle of 7 - 10 years and can be recharged up to 2000 times. Unlike most electric moped/motorcycles on the road today, the lithium battery does not require daily charging.

With the volatility of gas prices and a steady increase in worldwide greenhouse emissions, electric modes of transportation are an affordable alternative to traditional forms of travel. The X-Treme moped XM-5000Li emits zero carbon emissions, resulting in cleaner air quality. It can also reduce our dependency on foreign oil consumption and it is significantly quieter than gas powered motorcycles.

Since weight distribution is an important factor with motorcycles and street bikes, the lithium batteries are located in a low position under the driver's seat. This keeps the bike's center of gravity close to the ground which gives the motorcycle and rider improved stability and control.

X-Treme Scooters' new moped/motorcycle, known as the XM-5000Li, features a new controller design not found on any bikes in its category today. Expected to sell in the $6,000 price range, the XM-5000 Li carries a full year warranty and a two year warranty on the batteries. Consult your state or local authorities as this model may qualify for an energy rebate.

The X-Treme XM-5000Li is street legal in all 50 states. Orders for this new and innovative electric moped/motorcycle are being taken now, and are available for dealer delivery. The XM5000 Li will be the featured attraction at the X-Treme Scooters booth 8601 at the Dealer Expo in Indianapolis, Lucas Oil Stadium Level One, from February 13 - 15.
