Price Value Quality
Given my experience with the Pioneer9, I did not hesitate to purchase the Pioneer1 which I bought for it's compact turning radius and it's ease of use as home and work.
One year later, I am sorry to report I cannot recommend this scooter. The front structure of the scooter and how the shroud fit cause the shroud to start breaking apart after just a couple of months of use and I have had to replace the shroud twice in 12 months. At a cost of over $200 per shroud and then the cost to have it installed, the maintenance cost for this scooter cause it's value to be not acceptable. (Posted on 5/6/15)
