I have owned this scooter for a grand total of 5 days now and covered just over 55 miles. Overall I am quite frustrated by this scooter, the ride is great and mechanically it seems sound but there are four things small things that would cost little to fix and massively improve the experience. While it is advertised with upto 60 miles range, I was expecting much closer to 30 miles, and in reality it only managed 19 miles in gear 2 on flat terrain, I am not an especially heavy person ~80kg. This suprised me, as I would expect more from a 1000Wh battery and after discussing this issue with some friends the only conclusion we could come to is that poor cell choice by the manufacturer is the culprit here, is uses LG MJ1 cells which, while rated for 10 amps, will have a large voltage sag above 5A and a much reduced capacity. Molicel M35A would be a much better choice and only cost fractionally more and massively improve performance. This is my first scooter, coming from electric skateboards, and I am not sure if this is standard in the electric scooter world but the throttle authority is atrocious. It's as if the factory simply forgot to calibrate it. The first 50% of the throttle does nothing, at which point you are immediately met with 75% throttle, this makes it difficult to control if you are say, following a slow bicycle or waiting to overtake a pedestrian or simply trying to accelerate slowly. No one recognises the sound of the horn, as a horn. I tried to ride through a mixed-use zones in my town, heavy pedestrian and bicycle mix where a horn should come in handy, the problem is no-one recognised it as a horn! While a nice gimmick, I will be getting a simple bicycle bell as its universally understood what that sound means. Lastly, as mentioned by other reviewers, the mudguards are pretty useless, they appear to be designed purely for looks rather than function as they do not prevent spray from flicking off the back wheel and coating your back on damp roads.
