The Urbet Ego Is the Beautiful e-Scooter That Makes You Look Cool

If you’re a passionate rider and are looking for cheaper, more eco-friendly, electric alternatives, you don’t have to compromise anymore. Spanish start-up Urbet is offering a very badass-looking (and quite beautiful) electric moped / cafe racer called Ego.

Urbet has been on the market since 2016 and is currently offering five models of electric mopeds, depending on what you need one for: there’s the Gadiro, the Hispano, the Yadea C-Line, the Ibiza e-scooter and the Ego. The Ego stands out for its beautiful design and quite decent performance.

You would be hard-pressed to tell this electric scooter from an actual cafe racer from a distance. The body of the Ego is monolithic, with the two wheels extending out, a semi-exposed frame and the single seat suspended above the body. It is small and lightweight, yet capable of decent performance, all things considered.

The 3000W motor takes the Ego to a top speed of 90 kph (55.9 mph), while the 72 V Lithium battery is good for an estimated range of 120 km (74.5 miles). A full charge can be achieved in seven hours, and then you’re good to head back to the road.

Because this is an electric vehicle, it makes no sound, but for the safety of pedestrians, Urbet delivers it with the option of a traditional motorcycle sound activated when you twist the throttle grip. So you won’t just look like you’re riding a real (-ish) motorcycle, but also sound like it.

“Ego is a whim,” Managing Director Santiago Díaz-Pache tells ElectricVehicleWeb in a recent interview. “Very special design with cafe racer soul made to enjoy and be watched. The client buying this design is looking for something out of the market, totally different and to move in the city.”

The Ego comes with LCD display, hydraulic disc brakes and anti-theft lock, and classifies as an L3e vehicle, which means it requires an A or A1 driver’s license. It costs €2,479.34 ($2,762) before extra options, so it’s a pretty good deal for what it offers, both in terms of aesthetics and performance.
