My favorite part of working at GenZe is spending time with our customers; they’re funny, have cool hobbies, and are all-around awesome people. Which is why I was so excited to join our local dealer, The San Francisco Scooter Centre, as they hosted the first ever GenZe 2.0 Customer Appreciation Ride last weekend. After all, everything is […]

Farmers markets are one of the best parts of living in the Bay Area! Every weekend there are tons of outdoor markets where you can get locally grown, sustainable fresh food and flowers. In a world where food production is becoming increasingly anonymous, farmers markets are a great place to meet the people who grow your food […]

Visit if you […]

Sure, harm reduction on a global scale sounds daunting, but when you approach the problem on a personal level, it’s suddenly a lot easier. To help you work […]

They cruise up mountains, ride down roads less traveled, and do it all without spending a penny on gas, and with a low carbon footprint!

I have a confession to make: I love shopping. More specifically, I absolutely am obsessed with vintage shopping. 1960s shift dresses, mid-century ceramics, old records, and all kinds of shoes – I love them all! It’s undeniable, the Bay Area is a perfect place for vintage lovers–and my 2.0 is my perfect shopping expedition date! One […]

Scooters are great fun, and make so much sense as an inexpensive and smart way to cruise around town. But it’s good to get a handle on the rules of the road, both legal and social, before you get cruising. Know The Local Laws The first step to a safe electric scooter experience is making […]

If you live in Oakland, there’s no way you’ve missed the hullabaloo of roadwork stretching from 27th Street to Broadway Avenue on Telegraph Avenue. A lot of people puzzled, between expletives, at what this massive project that congested traffic for so long could possibly be. But as smooth asphalt was laid and crisp lines were […]

By: Kit Friday Ever since seeing Roman Holiday as a teenager, I’ve longed for a scooter. I mean, who isn’t enchanted with the freedom and convenience that their image alone communicates.

A lot of people ask how the GenZe 2.0 handles hills. Fortunately for us, most of Portland isn’t very hilly, however the hills we do have are nothing to shake a stick at. The GenZe 2.0 is designed to take hills of up to a 20% grade without a problem – so I decided to […]
