You want to go eco-friendly and get around town on a scooter, but standing while traveling isn’t your thing. Get ready to ditch your car because you won’t have that excuse anymore. Bird just released the Bird Cruiser, its new seated electric vehicle, some might even call it a bike.
Bird’s new Cruiser let’s you sit down while you jaunt about town
State-of-the-art technology make this one smooth ride
Room for another passenger — but not required
Hitting the streets this summer, the Cruiser invites you aboard with a comfy padded seat. If you’re still hesitant about getting on, don’t be. Once you sit down, you’ll realize this isn’t your great aunt Marge’s scooter. We’re talking an advanced LCD Matrix Display that shows route progress and other travel details, hydraulic disc brakes and a juicy and efficient 52V battery to get you to your destinations.
Whether you want to cruise without breaking a sweat or give yourself a bit of a workout, Bird gives you either option with the pedal assist or peg. And, with a “custom motor”, the Cruiser promises a smooth ride without jerky hiccups, even as it encounters inclines. When it comes to the whole scooter-verse, Bird offers two-wheelers to suit any rider’s tastes, from monthly personal rentals to purchasing your very own Bird e-scooter.
After taking a spin on the Cruiser, you might want to keep it to yourself. However, if you don’t mind sharing, the seat does accommodate two adults. The Bird Cruiser will be available in a few test markets this summer as part of Bird’s fleet of shared vehicles as well as via Bird Platform Partners. For more information, visit: bird.co/cruiser.
