Inokim - ‘Urban Freedom’
Inokim began as MyWay, as a garage-project, way back in 2009. Their award-winning designer, Nimod Saphir, set about creating a green, clean and sustainable mode of transport, and created the Quick scooter, in 2011. 2013 saw the creation of the Quick 1 (still in the range, now as the Quick 3), and 2015 the launch of the Light, a more lightweight, less powerful but more manageable and smaller scooter. In 2015 came the Mini, and in 2018 the might OX, which secured a coveted Red Dot Design Award from the prestigious international committee.
Constantly innovating and a true global scooter brand, the company are based in Tel Aviv in Israel, where the design centre is based, and manufacture in China.
We find Inokim e-scooters to be smooth and refined like few other brands on the market, and whilst they are a premium-priced product, the quality is evident throughout and they deservedly sit in the rarified air of the upper echelons of the scooter universe!
MiniMotors (Speedway and Dualtron)
MiniMotors are based in Korea, and lay claim to be the longest-established electric scooter company in the world, starting out in 1999. They became number one in the Korean domestic market in 2000, distributed the US-made Go-ped in 2006, and in 2011 launched the Fireball e-scooter.
In 2014 they launched the Speedway brand, and began manufacture in their new Chinese factory, and in 2015 launched the mind-blowing twin-motor Dualtron, and began exporting. These 2 brands, Speedway and Dualtron, are the backbone of MiniMotors, and have spawned subsequent models with ever-increasing power and performance.
Speedway, and even more so Dualtron, are brands that push the performance envelope for the electric scooter. At the top level they are raw and exciting, with a futuristic-industrial feel.
This is a brand that dispenses with the corporate polish to offer up some of the highest-performance scooters available anywhere in the world. They build their own scooters, not sold by anyone else as anything else. You are buying a unique product with Dualtron.
