What makes a scooter go faster?
From the weight of the rider to the capacity of the battery, there are many things that make a scooter go faster or slower. If you are a heavier rider, the battery will work harder to get you where you need to be. The tire pressure can often be a factor as well as the type of terrain. Getting to know your new scooter will help you to go faster on the road, but you won’t regret buying one in the first place!
It’s always fun to hit the top speeds but caution and safety should be at the forefront of your mind. You need to avoid accidents and remember that you are on the road.

It is the customer’s responsibility to ride their electric scooter within local laws and therefore assume all liability and risk associated with the use of e-scooter products.
