Release date: February 2023

The Gogoro 2 Series is an electric scooter manufactured by Taiwanese company Gogoro, which is the parent company of HTC, one of the top smartphone manufacturers in the world. The scooter is available in two variants, the Gogoro 2 and Gogoro 2 Plus, both of which have second-generation motors and powertrains that deliver the same power (6.4 kW) but guarantee smoother torque and better control. The e-scooter has two modes while riding, riders can select from sports and smart modes. Sports mode increases acceleration and top speed, whereas smart mode is more economical. 

This electric scooter comes with twin rear shocks with preload adjustments and a telescopic front fork. Single disc brakes are installed at both ends, with a combined braking system as a backup, and the 2 Series have standard 12-inch alloy wheels. Although the Gogoro 2 Series has an excellent display, a Bluetooth connection is not offered. It can be accessed with a smart key that features keyless access. It has adequate 25-litre under-seat storage and all-LED lighting.

What makes Gogoro 2 stand out from other e-scooters is that it has a system that facilitates easy battery swapping at any charging station in less than 6 seconds. When you run out of charge, simply stop at the charging station to swap out the scooter’s dead batteries. But Gogoro charges a monthly subscription for this service.
