All-Electric on Two Wheels Only – Prozza Scooter and Motorcycle

prozza miletto li500Electricity on four wheels, electricity on three wheels, and electricity on two wheels – all converge on the Tokyo Motor Show next month. One of the cuter additions is from a company called ProStaff, which started an all-electric bike racing team earlier this year.

ProStaff has a booth all to itself for its emission-free two-wheeled electric vehicles at the motor show, representing the theme of “Smart Mobility 2011.”

The more eccentric of the two vehicles on display at ProStaff’s booth is an electric scooter. The Prozza Miletto Li500 is an upgraded version of their previous electric scooter (the Prozza Miletto), with lithium ion batteries. It’s supposed to invoke a sense of stylish fun for the short-range commuter – and it’s definitely got that perky look.

ProStaff’s second contribution is the electric bike they sent to the TTzero race at the Isle of Man last June. The fully electric Prozza TT Zero-11 reached a top speed of 124mph (according to a camera mounted on the bike itself).

Never enough electric bikes and scooters, I say. Check out the gallery and bring ‘em on!
