Are Revel Mopeds the Fad of the Summer or the Future of Urban Transportation?

On a recent Wednesday afternoon, I came across a man in a motorcycle helmet pulling himself and his black Revel moped off the asphalt on Brooklyn’s Hoyt Street, after a spill on the rain-slicked street. This was serendipitous, because I was on my way to interview Frank Reig, the CEO of Revel, which in June deployed 1,000 electric mopeds to the streets of New York.

A few minutes after the crash, I asked Reig how he would address critics who believe riders may not be up to the task of piloting a moped through city traffic. “I would say, ‘We have thousands and thousands on our platform riding safely, effectively, loving it, having a shit ton of fun.’ ”
