We just got a Super Scooter 1000 for the 3 boys (now 15/13/13), and me (so I can ride with them). It's fantastic! We bought the boys Razor e300 scooters when they were 10/8/8. I wrestled over which scooter to buy back then - not wanting to get too little or too much scooter. The e300 was just right at 10/8/8. The boys had a few mishaps, but they were generally able to handle the e300 safely. About a year ago, one of the twins got the ezip 750 (when they were 14/12/12 - again, I wasn't sure if it was too big a jump up for a 12 year old - but it turns out it wasn't much of a jump up as the ezip 750 is capped at 15mph like the e300 razor). The ezip 750 had more torque, but a bit less top-end speed, and weighed more (but the ezip was a material step up in quality of design and manufacturing as compared to the e300).
Raising the bar again, we just got the Super Turbo 1000 from Super Cycles & Scooters and it's the real deal - instant torque, and speeds of 25mph'ish (with adult on flat ground) and almost 30 with kid on flat ground. After speaking with Super Cycles & Scooters a couple of times, I only had a bit of concerns about too much power/speed for the kids. The owner seemed genuinely concerned to get the right scooter to me (we could have gotten the 800 model they have) so the kids wouldn't get too much scooter.Read more ›
The handlebars fold up and seat comes off very easily, like a Dahon folding bike, for easy storage
Not really powerful. This is for moving around town, not going on long rides.
Range. It goes 12 miles. Which means, going at a constant maximum speed, you'd get almost 50 minutes of use of it.
In short - it's fantastic! I'm 40-ish, and riding this makes me feel like a kid again! Must add that although they are built in China, the build quality is great, it's very solid and well-constructed. Instructions were clear (with TONS of safety warnings, I'm sure put in by their attorneys due to our over-litigious society), and the scooter's performance is very good. Only small gripes: I'm about 185#, and I'd wish for about 20-25% more power. Not that it's underpowered, but going up hills with me onboard definitely slows it down. For lighter riders, it's not an issue at all. Also, this model has a side-pull front brake only; it'd be safer with front and rear brakes, and ideally disc brakes. But higher models have this, I am sure this was a trade-off made for the price point.
Also forgot to add: the interest and positive reaction these receive from bystanders is amazing! I have some exotic cars, and I think this scooter gets more thumbs-up, smiles, and inquiries! It's pretty amazing the reaction it gets. Even moreso in Europe, where I brought one for seasonal use. There's a LOT of interest in the scooter, and I'm surprised Currie doesn't do more to advertise/demonstrate them; I am sure they could sell a bunch more if more people were made aware just how cool these little scooters are.
In summary: this is a well-built and engineered, fun, and environmentally friendly little means of transport! I find excuses ('oh, just realized, need to go to the post office again') to take it out, it's that fun. Get one, whether you're a 13-year old or 43, you will love it.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (and I am in no way affiliated with Currie technologies).
I had a eZip 500 before. I think these are the improvement eZip 750 made:
1) Smoother accelleration. The throttle lowered the electric current at lowest gear, so you won't feel too much of a jolt from standing still. My old 500 used to hurt my lower back after repeated stop-N-goes. At higher speed, even close to full speed, the power is 750W vs 500W, so the you feel the power is stronger. Climbing hills becomes faster. The throttle respond to your command a fraction of a second quicker than the 500 model. Overall, that makes the throttle a much smoother feeling.
2) Battery lasts a mile or two longer. And, you can charge the battery while riding. This feature was prohibited in the 500 version. If my kids and I want to go anywhere farther than factory specified limit, I'll bring a lithium battery (or any other types of battery), hooked up to a inverter, and charge the onboard battery while we are driving the eZip scooter!
3) Front break is smoother and more effective than 500's rear drum break; less mechanical problem than 1000's disk break.
4) Front shock-absorber reduces road shocks, but not enough though.Read more ›

I have only had the scooter for about nine months and for the past month or two the battery only last for about 3 miles. The back tire seems to get punctured fairly often as well.Published 22 months ago by Robert Wheeler

Easy to put together---easy to ride. Only downer is the seat is uncomfortable and should be wider and have padding.Published on May 25, 2014 by bunni lightstone
