Easily Maintained – The Gogoro 2 was designed from the ground up for quick and easy maintenance and it utilizes familiar and readily available parts for convenient service with more scooter technicians everywhere.
Smart – Intuitive and Aware
Gogoro Smartscooters are smart. The Gogoro 2 continues Gogoro’s focus on innovation, connectivity and intelligence with a new level of sophistication that sets it apart from other scooters. The Gogoro 2 includes new LED lighting, Gogoro mobile app 2.0, increased security protection with support for TouchID and other biometric security, updated diagnostics, onboard software updating and more.
