The NES is an electric scooter from an innovative e-scooter startup from Turin, Italy. The scooter offers good driving characteristics and a unparalleled design.
In 1920 the Italian city Turin was a capital for the production of scooters and motorcycles with over 120 brands. In 1950 there were just 12 brands remaining and in 1970 the last two brands relocated. In 2015 the silence was broken and the e-scooter brand NITO (Nuova Industria Torinese) was founded by the former director of the IED (Istituto Europeo di Design), a University for European design studies with support from several international companies and the University Polytechnic.
The scooter has a powerful 4,000 watt electric motor for fast acceleration. The top speed is restricted at 31 mph and the scooter can be ordered as a light motorcycle with a top speed of 56 mph.
By default, the scooter is provided with all terrain tires that enables the scooter to drive both on and off road. The scooter is strong and durable but also lightweight which makes the scooter very pleasant to drive. The scooter is 88 lbs lighter than a modern Vespa.
The scooter has a removable Lithium battery with a range of 50 miles. The charge time of the battery is 3 hours. The battery is located in a locked compartment beneath the foot deck and can be removed easily.
The scooter has front and rear disk brakes. The scooter provides seating for two persons and provides fold-out footrests for a passenger.
The scooter is a true smart scooter that connects with a smart phone for access to several scooter applications including navigation and a map of charging locations.
The NITO NES can be personalized with 72 color combinations. The online configurator provides a broad palet of colors, saddle options, foot-plate wood options and even tire color options.
NITO provides several beautiful accessories such as a matching helmet, wind shields in many colors, a navigation system and a helmet compartment.
