For long range: Super73 ZX
After the launch in 2016, Super73 became a very popular choice among bike and motorcycle enthusiasts – by combining the two worlds. Their designs are inspired by 1970s small motorcycles and have a very vintage style and look for them, while packing a very powerful punch.
The ZX is the advanced model in Super73’s Z baseline, and has some very unique characteristics to it that other brands simply do not have. The wide and industrial body design has a sturdy build quality and provides a smooth ride with the big tires. The bike has a 615Wh battery capacity that will last 30+ miles on 20mph throttle only, and can stretch to even 50+ miles on pedal assist mode. It has a top speed of 28mph and can go even faster with the pedals.
Like all products on this list, the Super73 ZX doesn’t require a license or insurance of any kind, and with this particular model, you can remove the battery with an included key and charge it separately from the bike. The ZX comes at a price of $2195 and has optional accessories like lights, interchangeable tires, a surfboard rack, and other goodies.

For a tight budget: Segway Ninebot ES2
For a long time, Segway was known for making the self-balancing scooter, but after the lack of popularity of the products – they shifted over towards more traditional scooters. They brought the high-quality build of the S line to the new scooters, making them some of the best on the market.
The ES2 is very lightweight and is made with portability in mind. It has a 15mph top speed and can go up to 15.5 miles on a charge while weighing only 27.6 pounds. The scooter is equipped with solid tires for a puncture-proof ride, and has shock absorption points near both wheels for added comfort and security. Its price gives great value and is perfect for cruising around campus or running errands. For a price of $649, you get a fast and capable scooter that will make going out fun and will last for a long time.

For skaters: Exway Flex Riot/Hub
If you’ve been a skater for a long time, or even if you’re just starting, you know that taking a skateboard for long ranges or up hills is downright impossible. For that reason, the electronic skateboarding community has grown so much in the last few years, to provide a sustainable solution for those who are looking for a practical way to get around, without dropping their hobby.
The Exwat Flex is a great electronic and flexible longboard that exceeds the competition while staying at a great price. It can reach speeds of up to 25mph, and is capable of getting up to 15 miles on a charge with its 216Wh battery. The difference between the two drive train options are some added torque and customizability on the Riot (belt drive), or a quiet and more efficient motor on the hub. Both models have the same deck, trucks, and barrings, and will cost $699. Often, you can find them on sale for $629 or even less.

For adventure: Onewheel Pint/Pint X
This is my personal favorite. Onewheel started as a Kickstarter in 2014, and from there just took off. The unique concept and implementation created a dedicated community of users and enthusiasts, that grew more and more with each generation of the product. The Onewheel was created for making going from place to place fun, and it will defiantly draw some attention from the people around over its one-of-a-kind design.
The Pint and Pint X are basically the same, with the key differences being speed and range. The Pint has a top speed of 16mph and a range of 6-8 miles, compared to 18mph and 12-18 miles on the Pint X. Both models have the same wheel and body, and come with built-in headlights and handle. You can get the Pint and Pint X for $1050 and $1400 respectively, and both can be bundled with optional accessories and add-ons like a fender, fast charger, bumpers, and more.
