  Lepton - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The leptons form a family of elementary particles that are distinct from the gauge bosons and the quarks.
There are 12 known types of lepton, 3 of which are matter particles (the electron, the muon and the tauon), 3 corresponding neutrinos, and their 6 respective antiparticles.
Leptons from the Georgia State University is a small summary of the Lepton.

 Lepton (currency) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Lepton pl. Lepta (Λεπτόν pl. Λεπτά) is the name of various fractional units of currency used in the Greek-speaking world from antiquity until today.
The Roman mite was informally called lepton in the Greek-speaking parts of the Roman Empire; this use is seen in the New Testament.
In modern Greece, lepton (modern form: lepto, Λεπτό) is the name of the 1/100 denomination of all the official currencies of the Greek state: The Phoenix (1827-1832), the Drachma (1832-2001) and the Euro (2002-current).

 Lepton number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Lepton number (sometimes also called lepton charge) is an additive quantum number, which means that its sum is preserved in interactions (compared to multiplicative quantum numbers as parity, where the product is preserved instead).
The lepton number before the reaction is 0 (the neutron, n, is a baryon and therefore there are no leptons before), while the lepton number after the reaction is 0 for the proton +1 for the electron (a lepton) −1 for the antineutrino (an antilepton).
Because lepton number conservation law in fact is violated by chiral anomalies, there are problems applying this symmetry universally over all energy scales.

 Leptons   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Leptons and quarks are the basic building blocks of matter, i.e., they are seen as the "elementary particles".
There are six leptons in the present structure, the electron, muon, and tau particles and their associated neutrinos.
As one of the leptons, the electron is viewed as one of the fundamental particles.

Leptons are the lightest class of particles having nonzero rest mass.
The muon was originally classed as a meson because of its mass, about 200 times that of the electron, but the subsequent reclassification of particles on the basis of their behavior placed it with the electron in the lepton category.
The electron and the muon are almost twins, except for their large mass difference; each is negatively charged, has a positively charged antiparticle, and has an associated neutrino and antineutrino.

 The Nobel Prize in Physics 1995 - Presentation Speech
Leptons, which occur outside of atomic nuclei, also come in two types: electrons, which have both an electrical charge and a measurable mass, and neutrinos, which lack both charge and mass.
The tau, or tau lepton, as this super-heavy cousin of the electron was designated, provided the key to a definitive understanding of the family structure of elementary particles.
The tau lepton itself may be of crucial importance in testing future theories of how matter acquired the property that we call mass.

 lepton --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
Leptons have a half-integral spin and obey the Pauli exclusion principle.
It was concluded by the mid-1980s that the fundamental constituents of matter were the quarks, which are responsive to the strong force that holds the nucleus together, and the leptons, particles that are unresponsive to the strong force.
Bosons and leptons can have an electric charge that is the same as the electron (called –1 by convention), or they can have the opposite electrical charge (+1) as...

Leptons do NOT experience the strong nuclear force, rather any nuclear interactions they are involved in are via the weak nuclear force.
Leptons have zero baryon number and zero strangeness.
Muonic atoms are much smaller than typical atoms because, in order to conserve angular momentum, the more massive muon must be closer to the atomic nucleus than its less massive electron counterpart.

 Lepton Energy Spectra in e+e- Annihilation and Other Processes (1977)
4 illustrates the comparative insensitivity of the spectrum in heavy lepton decay to the neutrino mass in the high-energy limit.
A quantitative measure of the difference between the spectra in the charm and heavy lepton cases is also interesting.
Next we consider the angular distribution of the leptons relative to the beam axis.

 Lepton Energy Spectra in e+e- Annihilation and Other Processes (1977)
In particular, it is interesting to contrast the lepton spectra expected from charm and from the decay of pair produced heavy leptons
For charmed particles [4] and heavy leptons [5] with masses of order 2 GeV, the lepton spectrum is expected to be softer and the hadron multiplicity higher in the case of charm, the two processes becoming more distinct with increasing energy, as
However, if more flavors exist they may also yield a relatively hard lepton spectrum near their threshold, and it is interesting to see whether such a contribution could easily be detected.

I think that one thing really working against the Lepton with regards to the competition from other high end electric scooter manufacturers is the fact that the Lepton sales information quotes what I've found to be real world driving range.
The Lepton folks should consider emphasizing that their range figure is a real world one in their sales literature.

Along with the electron and muon, the tau particle and three varieties of neutrinos are now firmly established as members of the lepton group of subatomic particles.
Frederick Reines of the University of California, Irvine, contributed to the discovery of the neutrino in the 1950s, while Martin L. Perl of the Stanford (Calif.) Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) was a member of the research team that identified the tau lepton in the 1970s.
About 3,500 times heavier than the electron, the tau lepton is a member of the same family of subatomic particles as the top and bottom quarks (SN: 7/1/95, p.10).
