Customer Reviews

Somewhat disappointed
Review by Independent one
I decided on this scooter mainly because of the ground clearance. I enjoy being outdoors and wanted something that could get me around without worry. I believe this will do it.

Positives: Seems powerful and stable
Seems to hold charges well.

Negatives: Tiller is way too big, being a shorter person, you can't see bumps coming to steer around them so they are a surprise when you fall in. It also makes it more difficult to be independent. It's harder to reach around to open doors. I also enjoy mowing my own lawn in the summer and shoveling in the winter and again, it limits my mobility and flexibility. I keep the seat at a low setting for stability and if I made it higher, I wouldn't make it into my vehicle.
Too many bells and whistles. What does someone need signal lights for and why do they have to beep?
Too slow to get going. If I ever needed to get out of the way of something coming, I'm a dead duck.
Tires are foam filled. Makes the ride a lot rougher. Don't try to carry a glass of water with you. That will also make them a lot more expensive to replace.
Should give options on the seat. I got this scooter to be independent, not to be more confined. I had to go and buy a boat seat for it so it had a shorter back. I wasn't paying $250 for a downgrade in seat when I could just buy a new one for $50 at Cabelas. (Posted on 1/27/2019)
