What can I say I got this Electric moped
for the wife it's well built and fast for a Electric Bike ( MOPED ) I
think I've had more fun on it as the wife can't get the EVT on it's
stand she is only 4ft 11" if you are looking for a Electric Moped the
EVT is a must & will save you a lot of money with the price of fuel
today or & by the way you don't have to pay road tax don't tell Cameron
as he will tax it just for the hell of it just put all your money that
you would pay on fuel that is taxed at £82p in the £1 in a safe place &
buy another EVT for the wife

E V T leader 168: I have had this bike 5
years and use it twice a week. Not long after having it I had a
puncture. It is a major operation to remove the REAR WHEEL. Then we
found out that the plastic is bad quality and easily broken. The rear
brake mechanism is a nightmare to work on even when assisted by 3
lifelong motorcyclists. It has been knocked over 3 times,when parked,by
car drivers and scraped all over. we cannot get a match for the paint.
The chrome or lack of chrome is evident with all the rust on the bike.
Batteries were replaced not long after having the bike, and I would not
risk going more than 25KM.The insurance was £250 when I first had it,
now just under £200. I've ridden motorcycles for 24 years and would not
recommend this model. It was a replacement for a Scootelectric SWAP,
which was also unreliable.

I have had my EVT168
for 6 months now and its brilliant. So simple to use, maintain and ride.
I have done 3000 miles on it so far which has cost me under £13 in
electric! Astonishing. I think it will have paid for itself within 10
months of buying it, after that its completely free transport! The 30mph
top speed is perfect for general commuting and ridden well a 30mile+
range is quite achievable (and I weigh 16 stone!!). I travel everywhere
in silence, comfort and style and for virtually free! A huge Grin.

I have recently
bought an evt 168. Having ridden a Honda 50cc for the last 3 years I can
only say it this has been the best decision I could have made.
It is quiet so I don't wake the neighbours up when I go out early or get
home late. I don't have to worry about the thousands of parts that
need maintenance and oil. The only fluid is the brake oil which is
easily refilled on the handlebar.
After riding the 1st 1,500 miles I can confirm that it has cost me about
£4 per 1,000 miles in electricity (a sales pitch by The Electric
Transport Shop I didn't quite believe). That means it will pay for
itself within a year. So do yourself a favour and buy one, and
laugh all the way to the bank.
