Okay I’m looking to purchase an electric scooter like the ones seen in the pictures above. I live in NYC and I don’t have a license yet. Mass transit prices are getting to high. I’m looking to spend no more than $600 dollars. I’m 5’11 and weigh 265 lbs. So I’m looking for a heavy duty one that can easily hold over 300lbs. I don’t care about speed or distance. Just price, weight limit and overall durability. I don’t mind if it comes with a seat or weighs up to 50 lbs. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
The scooter comes in a variety of peppy colors. It has a vintage style and will surely turn some heads with its looks. It has a comfortable seat and really thick tires to ensure that the rider is safe while driving it.
This isn’t one of those “think of your grandchildren!” problems. Our cities are already clogged with traffic, and filled with hideous parking garages that facilitate our planet-killing habits. Even the automakers recognize that the traditional car business—sell a car to every person with the money to buy one—is on its way out. “If you think we’re gonna shove two cars in every car in a garage in Mumbai, you’re crazy,” says Bill Ford, Jr.—the chairman and former CEO of the company his great-grandfather Henry founded to put two cars in every garage.
In the early 1970s, Mike Corbin built a street-legal commuter electric motorcycle called the Corbin Electric. Later in 1974, Corbin, riding a motorcycle called the Quick Silver, set the electric motorcycle speed world record at 165.387 mph (266.165 km/h). The motorcycle used a 24 volt electric starter motor from a Douglas A-4B fighter plane.[14] In 1975, Corbin built a battery-powered prototype street motorcycle called the City Bike. This motorcycle used a battery manufactured by Yardney Electric.[15]
The Swagtron Swagger is a medium and compact high speed electric scooter for adults. It is for people on a tight budget but  having the desire to enjoy the services offered by a motorized scooter for adults. Based on its size and the size of motor (29.4 V), I was expecting it would be difficult to ride but I found to be pretty easy. It is good on a level ground and slight inclines. It was found to slow down on slopes having sharper gradients.
As the perfect riding companion for ages 7 to 15, the kick scooter will accommodate kids and teens of nearly any height! It features a height adjustable stem and high-grade aluminum alloy frame that easily carries up to 220 lbs.
As the electric scooter industry evolves, new design ideas pop up so fast, that it is hard to keep track. But some of the looks seem to stick around, just like this fat-tire electric scooter inspired by minimalist choppers with oversized tires. This electric scooters is powered by 1500w hub motor, and it’s very fun to ride. Low decks with low centers of gravity make for a great ride feel and handling, and you can turn by leaning, so the steering is kept at minimum. The top speed is 27mph, and the standard range is 25 miles, though it can be extended to 75miles with a battery upgrade.The scooter is very stable, but it is also pretty heavy, it weighs 100lbs. Features of E-Drift electric scooter include LED Front Light, Keyed ignition with Digital Gauge, Hydraulic Disk Brake system, front suspension.
Although the frame is “only” stamped sheetmetal, the thickness and quality of the steel means that this frame is actually quite strong. Plus, European moped history has had a great deal of time to discover what works and what doesn’t.
In 2005, we covered Honda’s cute latest electric scooter with seat scooter, but sadly it doesn’t seem like it is in production yet. (Honda, you reading this? Come on!) What made it interesting was its small size and weight, allowing for maximum urban mobility. It has a lever-based throttle system which is easier for novice riders, and Honda claims it has similar acceleration to an equivalent gas-powered scooter.
Connect the bicycle tire lights to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and with a simple tap of the app, customize your ride by adjusting image brightness and intervals or reversing the display. Not only is the Swaglight app a creative wonder, it also doubles as a trip tracker that informs you of distance, duration, speed, and battery life.

It is legal to operate an electric scooter in San Francisco. The City Council has made it legal because of the busy life of various city communities. However, as a rider, you must be at least 16 years old and hold a valid driver’s license or learners permit in order to legally drive an electric scooter on the city’s bikeway, trail, sidewalks or bicycle path. On the roadway, it must be operated in the bicycle lane. The City Council also requires all drivers irrespective age to wear a helmet while riding. Because San Francisco is one of the most congested cities in the USA, riders should not ride their motorized scooters in excess of 15 mph.
This is a bit like those gourmet hamburgers aimed at millionaires. It’s still just a hamburger, but every ingredient is rare or endangered. The M5 looks like it was developed for military use. Mean looking, black, and heavy. It’s a good looking, genuinely well-designed machine that you would have to be insane to buy unless your name is Richie Rich.
The front tire is an 8”inflatable number which deal with bumps well. Pneumatic is always a better choice than solid rubber, even with the risk of punctures. Especially since there no real suspension beyond that bit or air cushioning.
In 2017, the first vehicle in the US to use the new Lithium Titanium Oxide (LTO) battery non-flammable battery technology[47] is a scooter called The Expresso.[48] This new technology charges a battery in less than 10 minutes and withstands 25,000 charges (the equivalent of 70 years of daily charges).[49] The technology, created by Altairnano, is currently being used in China where over 10,000 urban buses run on these fast charge batteries.[50] In comparison Elon Musk’s electric vehicles use ion-lithium batteries which wane in 6-10 years.[citation needed]
Electric motorcycles and scooters suffer considerable disadvantage in range, since batteries cannot store as much energy as a tank of gas.[64] Anything over 130 miles (210 km) on a single charge is considered an exceptionally long range.[65] As a result, while electric machines excel as daily commuters traveling a fixed distance round trip, on the open road riders experience inhibiting range anxiety.[66] Also electric power trades off range against speed. For instance the current longest range electric scooter, the ZEV 10 LRC, travels 220 km (140 mi) at 89 km/h (55 mph), but according to the manufacturer the range drops to about 129 km (80 mi) at 112 km/h (70 mph).[67] A BBC news blog reported that an Austrian bike, the Johammer J1, is capable of travelling 200 km (124 miles) on a single charge.[68]
One of the most popular scooters of its category, the Razor E300 has an extremely quiet chain-driven motor and a high torque powertrain. The performance-driven motor can deliver a speed of 15 mph and a charge that lasts about 40 minutes on continuous use. The body is a cast of a good strong material, and it can stand a few bumps easily. Powered by a 24V lead acid battery, it is light yet strong.
The level of comfort is one key factor you need to consider when buying any electric scooter. The Razor E300S seated electric scooter comes with a stylish cushion seat to guarantee you a comfortable ride. The scooter easily folds whenever not in use since it employs the handlebar folding mechanism.
The early history of electric motorcycles is somewhat unclear. On 19 September 1895, a patent application for an “electrical bicycle” was filed by Ogden Bolton Jr. of Canton Ohio.[1] On 8 November of the same year, another patent application for an “electric bicycle” was filed by Hosea W. Libbey of Boston.[2]
Depending on your point of view, the Bird fleet is an environmentally sound, inexpensive way to go “the last mile” between public transit and your destination, an annoying impediment to pedestrians who have to dodge them on sidewalks, a safety nightmare, a tantalizing toy for teenagers too young to legally rent them, a crime against the people of the state of California as laid out in a criminal complaint by Santa Monica against Bird Rides Inc. …or just a hell of a lot of fun.
If your budget can stretch to the BLACKSUP there’s no doubt that it’s one of the best choices. The only major negative is that it’s not nearly as compact as a Razor E300, which is obvious. If the extra size doesn’t bother you then you have a winner right here.
