Story of MOTORINO by Founder and Owner Steve Miloshev
From Fascination to Business
In the late 1990’s, I was working as a mechanical environmental engineer for a Canadian company. Between 2000-2002, I was assigned to operate a pilot plant in China handling the remediation of mining drainages that contained heavy metals.
While there, I discovered electric bikes and scooters. I was fascinated, not only by their environmentally clean nature but by their practicality in reducing the traffic congestion. Their design was very basic and quality inferior, but I believed in their potential as a legitimate alternative for personal urban transportation.
