The preferred Christmas present this year for 8 year olds, at least in my neighborhood seems to be this stylish number. I guess it is a cousin of the electric scooters that were appearing when our kids were little. This model seems more appealing to girls from an informal survey of my block. The girl across the street has the Imod while her older brother has the scooter. Weekends get intense with five or more of these and a few scooters for variety going up and down our street. It’s hard to keep track of more than two at a time, especially when you are backing out of a driveway.
Here’s the real thing. Pretty snappy for a Vespa and it’s only $6K. The Imod is $500.
