BUT, if you are riding a street legal e-bike that looks like a gas-powered scooter, it might be difficult to convince your local policeman that it fits the legal definition for a bicycle. We know of several cases of people getting fined for driving these vehicles without a license, even though it’s perfectly legitimate according to law.

I have had it since March 2016 so, I have replaced the battery once by warrant and now, I am replacing the rear tire for a 2nd time. The rear tire continues to go flat. Followed the directions to put air in the tire but the tire itself fails since the valve is NOT accessible when the tire is flat.

What a deal! Runs great! I love it! It has a weight limit of 220 lbs? I weigh 245 and am 5’4″ and it “runs on gas!” LOL! No, it won’t take me up steep hills but I am able to get it up minor hills. Due to my weight and some hills it will only go about 3 miles on a full charge. I ride it to and from the library and Walmart, post office, etc. I strapped a plastic box with a lid to the back of it to carry small items home from the store and also hang bags on the handle bars. My only complaint is if I was a man the seat would make me sterile! I taped a cushion to it. FIVE STARS! I would buy it again!

I’ve had it for about a year and a half and bought it to commute to work but I ended up moving and it’s not convenient anymore. I have only used about 20 times for probably a total of 35 miles. The back wheel has a nick on the side from hitting a hole (see photos) but it doesn’t affect performance.

You cannot buy a good electric scooter for under $200. Electric scooters under $200 are most likely the low quality rip-off of another brand. If you weigh under 180lbs and need scooter for riding on flat surface, for not more than 3 miles, where the weather is nice, you can hope to get a scooter for around $300. In reality a decent electric scooter price is at least $500, but more realistically close to $1000. But remember that buying an electric scooter is an awesome investment that will cut your commuting cost, lower your carbon footprint and will definitely be worthwhile in the long run.

Here are the rest of the specs for the Genze 2.0:
Speed is not that big of an issue, mostly because it is usually limited by laws and regulations in your country/city. Some scooters are fast enough to be street legal, but most likely you will be riding on sidewalks and bike lanes, which makes the speed less important.
We decided to test this e-scooter after going through many positive customer reviews on the internet and after talking to people who were using this scooter in our neighborhood. Many roads at Trenton, NJ are not soo good but with this scooter we managed to move from the road to sidewalks with less hassle. However, we had to go slower on the sidewalks.  This electric self balancing scooter beats electric bikes, electric skateboards, and electric unicycles in terms of its versatility.
It’s not actually that comfortable to ride. 5’11” is probably on the big side for the scooter, but you really are cramped and hunched over and ridulous-looking on it. But it gets me from A to B via my plane and completes the mission, which is all that matters.
