Meet Gogoro Smartscooter – The Smartphone-Synched Bike

1
Gogoro Smartscooters are displayed in its shop in Taipei, Taiwan, July 6, 2015. Companies such as electric motor scooter firm Gogoro could hold the key to Taiwan’s economic growth. In just three years, the start-up raised $150 million to develop the smartphone-synched bike, and a charging network for it. Gogoro’s success in creating a home-grown, innovative product is precisely what Taiwan’s government wants to foster as it seeks to reduce the export-driven economy’s reliance on the island’s world-class tech manufacturing sector.
