The MotoTec 500w Electric Trike Personal Transporter is a step up from the 350w MotoTec model. This scooter adds 150w of power and an extra battery to the mix. The two upgrades combined boost the trikes speed from 15+mph to 20+mph without sacrificing range. In addition, the rear tires are more than double the size of the 350w. The larger tires handle bumps better and give you a smoother ride. Think of this scooter as a less pricey alternative to the Segway, but with a bonus wheel and seat for added stability and comfort.
Furthermore, the MotoTec 500w Electric Trike is packed with all the cool features found on the 350w model, like a removable seat, ability to climb 10-degree inclines, keyed ignition, folding handlebars, a front-facing LED head light, mudguards, and a battery meter.
The Mototec series of Electric Trikes is a favorite among active seniors and disabled folks. They’re for anyone too cool for a mobility scooter that needs help walking long distances and a third wheel for balance.
For those who settle for nothing but the very best, check out MotoTec’s top-of-the-line 800w electric trike.

My granddaughter gave this electric trike to me as a gift, we chose it together and I absolutely love it. I have had it for only a couple of weeks, and I don't think I can manage without it anymore. It takes me from place to place easily. I tried an electric bike for awhile, but my balance isn't what it used to be. I learned how to maneuver this MotoTec electric trike pretty quickly, and now, I feel like I'm a pro. Two thumbs up to this electric trike. I'm so grateful, you can't even imagine!
