Go-Ped Pro-Ped: The Only Cali Legal, 100% Green, Stand-Up Gas Scooter

SOUTH PASADENA, CA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2009) - UrbanScooters.com is excited to announce the addition of the all new, eco-friendly, Go-Ped Pro-Ped Propane Powered Scooter to its line up. The Pro-Ped is the only stand-up gas scooter green enough to pass California's strict emissions laws. While it's arguably as green as comparable electric scooters, the Pro-Ped is only a fraction of the cost and weight. This gas scooter is built for commuters and thrill-seekers who want to maximize their savings on clean, green personal transportation.

The Go-Ped GSR Pro-Ped is solidly built, ultra-reliable, quiet, efficient and easy to maintain. The aircraft quality, heavy duty steel frame carries up to 400 lbs. The ride is steady, smooth and stable. The Go-Ped Pro-Ped's LEHR engine won Popular Mechanics 2009 "10 Most Brilliant Products Breakthrough Award." It produces 97% less particulates, and 96% less carcinogens than traditional four-stroke gas scooter engines. The propane canisters are found at local hardware and camping stores and installing them is beyond simple. You just "Twist and Go!"

We've got to hand it to US based Patmont Motor Werks, aka Go-Ped. They launched the gas and electric scooter craze 20 years ago and continue to deliver the highest quality, most innovative scooting machines on the market. Go-Ped has once again raised the bar with the release of the Go-Ped Pro-Ped propane powered gas scooter!
