Serengeti Panther Lithium Scooter

Riders keep up with traffic while zipping through town at up to 30 miles an hour. Since the scooter is classified as an electric bicycle, it requires no registration or driver’s license to operate. Pavement-roaming power comes from the built-in rechargeable battery that eschews the need for costly gasoline or a team of sled dogs. Propelled by a rumbling 500-watt motor and equipped with hand brakes and front headlights, the sleek blue scooter can travel up to 50 miles or roughly 80 minutes on a single charge.

Features
  • Rechargeable lithium battery eschews the need for costly gasoline
  • 90-day manufacturer warranty
  • 500-watt DC brushless motor
  • Built-in hand brakes and front headlights
  • Reaches up to 30 mph, exactly the speed needed to catch a sun before it sets
  • Travels up to 50 miles or roughly 80 minutes on a single charge
  • Sleek blue design
  • Case dimensions: 70”x21”x45”
  • State laws for registration may vary, check state requirements for registration

$799 for Serengeti Panther Lithium Electric Scooter ($3,599.95 List Price). Free Shipping.

As expected, the original price is way off. Here's a nice in-depth review. Doesn't seem like a bad deal:

Thanks for the info. Indeed the price might be inflated by Groupon, but in still its at least $1300 less. So I think it's a great deal. Plus 14 day return policy works for this item.

The review clearly states that 30mph is a dream and the reality of its top mph is between 20-25.

Thanks for the review link...I want a scooter and electric sounds perfect...but if it only goes 20-25mph I'll get run over by Chicago traffic. No way this can be used on the city main streets or the side streets...maybe a farm but even in the country you'll get run over by cars wanting to go over 30mph. This seems like a clearance deal for a failed product. Groupon stock will definitely keep dropping with these types of deals

Almost bit for this as I deliver Pizzas in a very busy town but then I don't want to get killed riding this by other drivers as they will probably shoot me for going 25 in a 25 mile zone. (idiots go 40 here and the police drive about 60 in the 25 mile zones)

Even in a small NC town speed limit is 35. I see someone going on a small 2 way town street and causing 25-20 cars going behind, looking for an opportunity to pass. I don’t recommend it to anyone if you imagine getting into this situation. But yeah I hope the speed for these kind of scooters should be increases to about 50, may charge even more $$, and hope lots and lots of people start using these, so the people in cars will develop some respect for these. These are smart drives for small distances in small towns /inside roads.

"...it requires no registration or driver’s license to operate"
this is a lie .. at least in illinois. it has the same classification as a scooter or moped or motorcycle. c'mon groupon! how would you allow this verbage? you are based out of chicago!

Ok, Y'all are idiots. Does no one know how to pass? Agreed 25mph is slow, but it's a scooter, not a Combine, people will go around you. Not bad for short in town commutes, or vacation communities where you just need something to putz down to the pool.
