TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Gogoro, a Taiwanese-based electric scooter company, launched its latest models for competitive prices, Gogoro 2 Delight and Gogoro S2 Tuesday.

At a press conference on May 29, Gogoro officially introduced the two new models coming with a polished exterior and upgraded equipment that particularly targeted young urban students, according to TechNews.

The Gogoro 2 Delight model is derived from its previous-generation Gogoro 2, which is the average 115cc scooter and comes with two color options of gold and ice blue light. However, the Gogoro 2 Delight has some advanced features such as the streamlined handlebar, downsized 12-inch wheel, dual disk brakes and synchronized braking system.
