nǐ nǐ nǐ ！nǐ mǎi le gǒugǒuròu ？
You... you... you... You bought a Goo-Goo-Row?
fāyīn zhèngquè yīdiǎn ，shì gogoro ，zhè kě shì hàochēng liǎng lún tèsīlā de zuìxīn gāokējì chǎnpǐn nà ！
You need to pronounce it correctly. It's Gogoro. It is the latest in high tech. They even refer to it as the "two-wheeler Tesla"!
wǒ shuō zhè gǒuròu diànpíngchē ，kējì gāo shì gāo ，dàn jiàgé gèng shì gāo fāntiān ，diànpíngchē zěnme pǎo yě pǎo bù yíng mótuōchē ，jìngrán yào mài shàng wàn kuài ，zhíjiē qiǎng hái bǐjiào kuài yīdiǎn 。
This battery-powered scooter may be high tech, but its price is really out of this world. However fast a battery-powered scooter runs it can't outrun a motorcycle. And they sell it for over 10,000 yuan? Wouldn't they be quicker just robbing you?
diànpíngchē gēn shāo yóu pái fèiqì de mótuōchē gēnběn bùzài yī gè shuǐpíng shàng ，zěnme néng fàng zài yīqǐ bǐ ？suīrán tā hàochēng shì ná yī èr wǔjīchē dāng duìshǒu ，dàn nà yě shì wèile gěi pǔluódàzhòng yī gè cānkǎozhí bàle 。
Battery-powered scooters and petrol-burning air polluting motorcycles aren't in the same class. How can you compare them? Although they say that it is a competitor of 125cc scooters, that's really just to give the average man on the street a point of reference.
