I got hit by a car on my bicycle and I needed a way to get to the train without bending my right knee (it's in a brace). I extensively researched every high-end electric scooter out there. I now have >300 miles on this thing and I love it. GET THE HARD TIRE. The comfort difference is negligible, but the air tire kills the range, makes it nearly impossible to kick scoot if it's dead (WAY slower). I would also just go to their site and order the M5 LE (not the "Air", contact them for a hard tire instead). I got a flat within one week with the Air tire and found it difficult to remove the tube (and I am mechanically inclined). My patch did not hold either, likely due to the small diameter tube. I've never had a patch not hold before, so I doubt it was "user error".
-FAST, I weigh >200lbs and I can hold 20-22mph on flat ground, hits 25+ with the slightest of downhills.
-Large foot area, I've actually taken passengers on it numerous times.
-Built like a tank, I've taken passengers, ridden it off curbs, and this thing just feels SUPER solid at all times
-Rear brake only, so there's no chance of flipping over the bars
-Standard tripod mount on top, I bought an adapter for my GoPro and a phone mount.
-With the hard tire, I get about 10 miles of range riding it FLAT OUT almost the entire time. I think this is impressive.
-Bright backlit LCD display with trip meter, speedometer, odometer, battery life, and charge cycles.
-Folds in about two seconds, and you can leave the bars at your normal ride height to save time if you don't need the most compact fold.
-VERY compact, I can slide it under the seats on the CTA and Metra trains.
-Not obvious that it's electric, I kick scoot a little on sidewalks sometimes, staying under 10mph, and nobody seems to mind.
-Charges FAST, they are not exaggerating about the 2.5 hours to 80%.
-Get to work or wherever without getting sweaty like a bike, or burning fossil fuels like a car.
-Comes set at 12.5mph max, 8 allen bolts on the deck and unplug the limiter to do 20+. It also has a 7.5mph limiter plug. I like the ability to limit it since I wouldn't want anyone other than an actual adult doing 20+ on this thing.
-Kickstand is super convenient when standing or folded. I can wedge it against stuff and put the kickstand down when folded and it doesn't budge.
-Regenerative brake on the LE model is fantastic. Not sure how much energy it saves, but it makes the brakes much more effective.
-Pretty smooth variable throttle, not just an "on/off" like some others. I can cruise at 2-3mph behind people walking, or blow past bikes at 20mph.
-With the air tire, I only got about 7 miles of range and it got a flat really quickly
-The rear brake needed tightened, I could squeeze the lever all the way to the bar without coming close to locking up.
-The brake lever needed to be rotated downwards, it was angled upwards upon arrival making it awkward to use.
-No way to roll it when folded, you either need to buy their carrying bag, wheel it unfolded, or deal with carrying it.
-No lights or horn. It's not hard to add a front light, but I haven't found a good way to add a rear light which would make me feel much safer.
I've ridden in on streets, sidewalks, metal grates, light debris (broken auto glass, leaves/small branches, light gravel), up slopes in Central Park, pretty much everywhere in Manhattan so far and I'm continuously amazed at how much momentum you can pick up. I haven't attempted a real hill, but I can imagine that from a dead start, you'll need a little extra push. I weigh about 165lbs - if I'm on a flat nicely-paved street, this thing can really move. Sometimes I have to slow down because it feels dangerous at top speeds, especially if I'm going down a grade. I easily pass those "tour-de-france" cyclists, whizz by the delivery guys; and in traffic, it's a dream. If you slow down, you can even get away with riding on the sidewalk for a short period of time if there are no people around.
You can fold/unfold the scooter in less than 5 seconds once you get used to it. After riding about 6-7 miles, the indicator still shows I have about a one-third of battery charge left, so I figure an average of 8-10 miles per charge depending on the payload. The charging is relatively fast, to get it back to full, it's a couple of hours, so if I know that I'm going long range, I just throw the charger in my bag and charge it on the other end. However, I can easily get to the East Village from the Upper West Side and back on a single charge just to give an idea of the range.
It's also convenient / innocuous enough to bring into a restaurant, coffee shop, etc... In most cases, no one even notices it by my side, or tucked away in the corner. When folded, it looks like a piece of photo equipment, or a heavy duty tripod at a glance. That's a huge deal for me as I already have a bike, but need something I can bring inside so I don't have to worry about it being stolen.
At 35 lbs in weight, it does feel heavy. You do not want to be walking up 5 flights of stairs with it, nor would you want to walk around the block. It feels like a 'dead weight.' It's manageable, but I'm not going to lie, it's heavy-feeling, but not cumbersome, can easily be taken into the subway, or thrown in the back of a taxi if you're feeling lazy. If lift weights at the gym regularly, you'll be fine. If you don't, you'll notice that it's heavy.
When all is said and done, I have to say that it's just plain FUN to ride no matter what age you are. It's easy to hop on and off of it in case you approach a bad line of traffic or a group of people (the brakes work just as well as bike brakes), so it really is the perfect mode of transportation for an urban environment. If you're on the fence, just buy it, you won't be let down!
