Hello, my dear friends! I've got some good news for you! I am moving forward to mass production of my scooters! I've decided to create a project team. We are planning some fundraising in the nearest future/ And at the moment we are setting up the company and registrating a trademark.
The most difficult part remains for me. Come up with a name...
We are considering various ideas for the naming of the company and scooter itself (it could be different names). That's why I would be thankful for your ideas about Company and Scooter naming. Please send me personal messages with the ideas, not to flood the forum. I would be very glad!

And one more announce - we are preparing a series of interviews with those who are interested in our scooter to make our product to go beyond the expectations. If you are willing to hop on a call with us for about 40 minutes, please PM me as well!

Let the force be with you))

Just accidentally stumbled on this forum topic and as a machinist and creator myself, I am very impressed by the craftsmanship that has been put into this project. All that complex design and CNC machining with a ROUTER?!?! I could see that you were pushing that CNC to its limits when you made the new rear rim by looking at the tool chatter marks in the center.

Keep it up, your designs are outstanding and unique, I'm sure you will have lots of success!

Greetings from Estonia!

I don't even know how I stumbled across this at 5:00am this morning but I read through the whole thread.. this is amazing! Like seriously amazing. I have been looking to buy a scooter.. just a humble cecotec series s... you know one of those little things with 2 wheels and a battery... can just about make it up a hill. Then I see this.... its insane. Congratulations to you, you clever clever man. Bring on v2!!

One takeaway... you said you didn't like dual motors... this intrigues me, I wanted dual motor. but for my money could only get rear motor. (Series s) but if you prefer single motor i might be a bit happier buying it

Long time since your last update - hope things are going well with your startup Alex!

Ended up reading the whole thread in one go too and by the time I got to the part where you said you were making your own CNC, I was like "WHAT!" out-loud. Maybe I had that reaction a few times actually. Really impressive effort, engineering, and craftsmanship. Thanks for documenting and sharing, very inspiring.

One question if you see this sometime, what's your main motivation?

i cant wait when your ready to start taking orders hopefully though you can put a bigger motor to contend with the likes of weped and rion and a bigger battery 4-5kw would be nice. just keep us updated. its nice your taking alot of time to try and make a product that will last longer then other high end scooters.

Greetings to everyone who is still waiting for the continuation, as well as those who have just joined this thread!
The past year, frankly, was a difficult one for my project. Since March, everything did not go according to plan, my income plummeted and I had to be distracted to earn at least for food.
Due to a lack of funding, contractors were involved only in the most difficult stages of construction. I had to master a new profession - a builder. In my free time, my friend and I were slowly building a new building in which "version 2.0" will be produced.

If I had experience in construction, everything would have turned out much faster and much better))) But I proceed from the opportunities that are available to me at the moment.

Nevertheless, today, it is already possible to work in the room, despite the unfinished interior decoration. There is still a lot of work to be done on laying communications.
I haven't been able to build my own CNC machine yet, but I will return to this in the near future. For this, I have already bought a new, ready-made CNC machine for metal processing, for the manufacture of the remaining parts.

So, in the near future, I will still start making a new scooter and will post the whole process in this thread.

In the meantime, I can only boast of my chandelier =)))

In general, I just wanted a good scooter for myself, but could not find a ready-made one on the market. I started doing it myself and ... got carried away=))) The rest is described in this thread.

Sorry, but I didn't understand the question. Why put the engine more, if rion and weeped lose in dynamics to Vostok-1, and "Version 2.0" will be 2 times more powerful?

It seems like (I'm not sure) the site should work, but I'm still having problems opening a current account ... www.expacio.tech

Also, they sent me a Vostok-1 for maintenance

In the near future I will make a detailed review of the faults.
Basically, before the first ride, I just pumped up the shock absorbers. Otherwise, there were no backlashes, creaks and other things.

For the company name I would suggest VOSTOK + the Russian equivalent of the word "WORKS". So VOSTOK WORKS but in Russian.
Please don't try to use some English name that would more than likely sound ridiculous. No offense but a lot of times when East Europeans try to make something sound cool in English it ends up being A. Corny, or B cheese, C tacky, or D incomprehensible. Stick to your heritage and use a name that is meaningful in your own culture.

The VOSTOK name alone sound pretty robust. Even in English. Expand on that.

Sweet Jayses dat skuter. And dat 7 ton CNC oh ma lord.

And you should. I approve of your drone inspired chandelier.

Please also explain what these nails in the foundation of your shop floor are for.
