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 […]

With such a rich and wild history, it’s no surprise that the Bay Area has its share of ghost stories. And since Halloween is right around the corner, we thought we’d hop on our 2.0s and scare up a list of East Bay spots with spooky histories. We hope that they get you into the holiday spirit. Visit if you […]

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! We love seeing photos of our customers having a blast on two wheels, so we thought, […]

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 […]

This electric scooter is popular with advanced riders, but its beautiful, simple design makes having a panic-free good time an accessible experience for even the most […]

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. But at some point between the TV screen and reality I got caught up in a self-doubt spiral about my ability to actually drive […]

With our new Scoot partnership, you’ll be seeing a lot more GenZe 2.0s on the road (like, hundreds). But starting today, keep your eye out for one in particular. To celebrate the 4th of July, and the fact that GenZe Scoots (well, all GenZes) are made in America, we have released the Freedom Scoot—the Scoot you can ride […]

The world is connecting at a dizzying pace. Every day, we forge new modes of communication that enable us to interact with our world, and each other, in new and unimaginable ways.

I had an opportunity to take the GenZe 2.0 for a ride in Marin this weekend. Having only ridden on closed test courses, bringing this out on the road was a totally different experience! I was flying by cars with a twist of the throttle. I haven’t spent much time in Marin, so this was a […]
