Hi, we're Wattson.
We ❤ electric bikes.
We first discovered the phenomenon of electric bikes and electric scooters after living in Shanghai for over a year, a city populated by over 24 million people. In a city with such a dense population traffic can be a tricky problem and yet one that light electric vehicles were well suited to address.
DReducing both pollution and traffic, the municipal government pushed the concept heavily and adoption across Shanghai soared. When we first arrived in Shanghai from the US we quickly took note of this anomaly, however it wasn't until we would eventually try riding our own that we would understand how big this could be.
It was an instant rush. They made virtually no noise. The ride was incredibly smooth, with no gear changes or engine revs to build. The power of the rapid acceleration. We fell in love immediately.
We had found something special… we have found the future. And so we set out on a mission to bring the best possible light electric vehicle to market, combining the best aspects of electric bikes and electric scooters to adapt to the needs of those living in the USA.
We knew the bike had to be an absolute blast to ride much like our first experience. It had to be extremely comfortable and something you could enjoy with friends and family. It had to be easy to ride and not require the rider to break a sweat. It had to integrate into our daily lives effortlessly, and it had to look great while doing it.
After much research, trial, and error, we finally ended with something that meet all of our demands.
The Wattson Spark: an electric bike-scooter hybrid.
You're going to love it.
Our company is founded. After much networking, we finally settle on a strategic partnership with a manufacturer that meets the demands of our quality requirements.
Research and Development
We begin research and development on our unique electric bike.
Electric bike is successfully developed and tested. Logistics are executed and our first models are on their way to the USA.
We signed our lease agreement and open our shop. Our bikes sell out in single season. We get the validation we were looking for and begin moving to scale.
