Vehicle2012 HCF 301
The HCF 301 is a two wheel scooter with two
outboard, shock equipped "training wheels", one on each side of the rear driving wheel.
Motorunknown Brushless DC
Controllerunknown Brushless DC
Batteries1, 24.00 Volt,
The original gel-cell battery pack provides a required ~25lb ballast under the rider's feet. The pack has two 12V 12.5lb gel-cells in it with a custom connector.

We introduced a 24V LiFePO4 pack which improved performance, but required us to keep the gel-cell pack installed or the HCF-301 gets very tippy!
System Voltage24 Volts
Top Speed12 MPH (19 KPH)
Not so great on hills with over 180lb rider, but on the flat this scooter gets up to 12mph.
Range5 Miles ( 8 Kilometers)
Curb Weight65 Pounds (29 Kilograms)
Additional FeaturesStandard equipment: rear basket, side mirrors, horn, front light

Optional: mini-towbar for small trailers. We used a custom HoverSeat trailer attached to the HCF 301 scooter as a maintenance vehicle at Maker Faires.
With a "noseless" seat, this HCF 301 scooter is usable for up to a 6'3" 225lb rider.
