Buyers can choose from three colors-Jet Black, Dove White, and Electric Rose-with deliveries expected to begin this summer. You'll also get $100 in ride credits to use with the shared fleet and the ability to track your scooter with the app, as well as anti-theft capabilities through the Bird Hunter Network.

The California-based company removed its scooters from Milwaukee streets last August in an agreement with the city to bring them back once a regulatory framework was in place.

The One will first arrive in Los Angeles and will reach other areas in the coming weeks.

Electric scooter companies made their debut in Brookline with the introduction of Massachusetts' first e-scooter pilot. "Given the excitement and demand for our next generation e-scooter, we are also making a limited supply of Bird Ones available to own". Retail scooters also have a digital lock that can be activated remotely via a smartphone, as well as Global Positioning System to track the scooter if it's stolen.

"Bird One builds on the benefits and learnings of Bird Zero and is forecasted to last in the sharing environment for well over a year", VanderZanden said.

The Bird One features a 12,800mAh (473.6 Wh) battery that offers up to 30 miles of range on a single charge.

It's worth noting that the first-generation Bird scooter model, made by the Chinese company Xiaomi, is now available on Amazon for $448. The company brands the Bird One as the "industry's most comfortable ride" thanks to custom-designed wheels that can take on different types of terrain. It could also require a certain portion of scooters to be available in designated neighborhoods, a regulation bike-share companies must follow.
