 We are selling our Italian made Lepton-e Oxygen Electric Scooter/Moped.  I purchased this for my wife about 5-years ago.  She used it for commuting back and forth to work a few miles several days a week.  The scooter runs like new and has never had a mechanical problem- ever!  It has about 1300 miles on it and has had the upgraded 50ah batteries and trickle charger ($600) installed about 3 years ago giving it incredible speed and distance.  We are selling because we now have a child and my wife quit her job and is unable to ride it now.  It has always been babied, stored inside, and not ridden in inclement weather.  We have the original manuals, both ignition keys, and both security system key fobs.   It has a throttle limiter established at 28mph by law and can go about 45 miles on a charge with the upgraded battery system.  These mopeds listed for about $3000 new.  Ours is as good, or better than new.  Listed below are some reviews of the Lepton that I pulled off of the web.  You will not be disappointed in this scooter, it really is awesome.

 

Lepton review

I just want to let you know that I am getting the range you said I'd get with the Ni-Zn batteries in my Lepton electric motorbike. I've taken a 27 mile ride (last weekend) and still had charge to spare when I got home. Today I took a 25 mile ride to a park where I went rollerblading, and again made it home with charge to spare. The last 3 miles of both of these long rides was straight up a rather steep mountain road. After these rides, the Lepton Oxygen is charged back up and ready to go again in only 2.5 hours or so. Amazing! I'm doing these long rides in economy mode, and am limiting my top speed to 18 - 20 mph on the flat. The Lepton truly is a quality product!

 

 

 

SEBASTOPOL, California - (September 18, 2001) Popular Science has selected the new LEPTON™ electric scooter from ZAP (Nasdaq:ZAPP) for its October 2001 "What's New" section. The California electric vehicle pioneer says it has received its first shipment of the Italian electric scooters and is now filling orders. The LEPTON provides a whole new experience in motor scooters. You'll have all the exhilaration of a gasoline scooter, but you'll be zipping along in almost eerie silence. Just turn the key, twist the throttle and go-no shifting necessary. Scoot to work, to school, to errands, deliveries, site seeing-or just for fun! Named after the sub-atomic particle, the LEPTON is a new moped-class scooter imported from Italy that incorporates classic Italian styling with the latest in electric propulsion technology. Now you can leave your car at home and take this fun new form of transportation-without emitting any exhaust. The LEPTON works like a traditional gas scooter, but look--no tailpipe, no noise, no oil and no gasoline! On a budget? The LEPTON can help you save money on gas while you're helping the environment. A ten-mile trip in your car can cost about $5.00 while the LEPTON costs about 15 cents. Zero emission electric power means the LEPTON causes almost no pollution compared to similar gas-powered scooters. According to the California Air Resources Board, electrics are more than 90 percent less polluting than gas powered vehicles, even after counting emissions from power plants. Yet, with its high-efficiency, microprocessor controlled propulsion system, the LEPTON travels up to 25 MPH for a range of up to 20 miles. The LEPTON recharges at any household outlet; just plug it in like a cell phone. The LEPTON has all the other amenities of regular scooters: variable grip throttle, suspension, front and rear brakes, lights, turn signals, full instrumentation, padded seat, and rear cargo rack. The LEPTON electric scooter is now available from ZAP for $2,995 including shipping and handling. ZAP has other electric scooters and bicycles starting at $499. Visit http://www.zapworld.com.

One thing becomes perfectly clear the moment you climb aboard the Lepton Oxygen electric motor scooter. Nobody beats the Italians when it comes to combining speed and style.

With quick and quiet acceleration to a top speed of 28 mph and a range of up to 31 miles on a 5-hour charge, the Oxygen is approved for legal street use by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and the European Union Transportation Agency.

A valid motorcycle license may be required to operate the Oxygen electric motor scooter. Check your state vehicle code for requirements.

"This one has a solid ride, it ate up every hill we could throw at it."

The Italian-built Oxygen scooter has a level of quality and more importantly, a standard of safety that can't be matched by other, cheaper Asian imports currently on the market.

It not just faster and better looking, this electric scooter is much safer than the other Asian imports currently on the market.

All our Oxygen electric scooters are DMV-friendly and come fully-loaded with DOT approved components, full instrumentation, plus mirrors and turn signals to complete the package. The Oxygen scooter frame is made of rock-solid, corrosion-protected tubular steel, not cheaper, softer aluminum. The motor and drive mechanism are enclosed and the batteries are positioned at the rider's feet to provide a lower center of gravity (CG) for confident maneuvering and sudden stops.
