The true Super Turbo 1000watt Elite Scooter from Super Cycles and Scooters is back in stock! Don't be fooled by knock off companies trying to steal our name on this great product! they sell a cheaper lower quality version of this scooter, but with a similar name. If it's not from Super Cycles and Scooters it's not the real SUPER TURBO 1000-ELITE! Unlike our competitors; we do not exaggerate our scooter specs. Research the internet! Currently; the largest brushed motor available is 1000watts! Even if there were a larger motor available there would be absolutely no performance increase unless the battery is upgraded to higher voltage or a brushless motor is used in place of brushed. Our current model uses deep cell lead acid batteries for an even longer run time per charge! These batteries hold a charge longer than any other lead acid battery available. We give our customers exclusive access to our "How Videos" such as: "How to change the tube in your tire if you get a flat" Comparing this scooter to the competition: The Super Turbo 1000-Elite may look similar to our competition. However we spared no expense on the quality of this scooter. It includes many upgrades not found on other scooters. It is the only scooter in its class that has a LED head light and Wide Comfort Seat, Free Small Storage Bag, Turbo Econo Button, True 30lbs Deep Cell Batteries, and a High grade hard locking seat clamp.

Anyway - here's the crux of the issue. I love, love, love these scooters. However, about 2 years ago I noticed that the handlebar on one of my Super Lithium 1500 scooters seemed to be tilted back just a wee bit more than it had been before. Strange, I thought. But I kept riding, thinking my mind was playing tricks on me. Now about riding style - I ride these fast, as they were designed to go - but don't abuse them. No jumping off curbs, no jumping off mx-style berms, no huge wheelies, etc., And while I weigh a solid 195#, I'm well within the rated weight of the scooters. A few months later, I was cleaning the same 1500 after a ride and noticed something shocking: The top part of the steel frame - which is the battery box - had completely separated at the welds in front, and was peeling back and away from the lower part of the box/frame (see photos).
I couldn't believe my eyes - the frame was actually coming apart, with the top part pulling away from the rest of the box. This explained why the handlebars felt a bit tilted back. I started thinking how could this happen - as mentioned, I don't jump the scooter or abuse it abnormally. One issue is that the 1500 has tons of torque - and I ride mostly standing up. When you take off from a stop, that huge torque pulls you back right away, and if standing, the only thing you have to hold on to are the bars. If seated, much of that forward thrust goes to your butt, but if standing you have to hold onto the bars as the acceleration builds quickly. So that may have been a contributing factor - but it's obviously a weak design, and a huge and dangerous design flaw.
Had this frame separation gone unnoticed, it could have easily continued to pull apart, then catastrophically fail when hitting one bump or hold in the road - in which case, the frame would immediately plow into the ground, stopping the scooter instantly and throwing the rider off forward - at up to close to 40mph. Serious injury or death could very possibly result.
So I repaired the frame, by taking a sledgehammer to the top piece that pulled away, and taking it to a welding shop to be re-welded together along with some extra reinforcement - metal L-brackets at the front of the frame where the great stress occurrs. One look at the design of the frame and you can tell that this joint is under huge stress - you don't need to be an engineer to see that. And the few small tack welds that are made at the factory are woefully inadequate for the scooter to be safe.
After discovering my 1500's frame coming apart, I immediately checked my other Super Scooters, the 800 and 1000. Both of those were OK, their welds were not coming apart at the same location. It's worthy to note that the frame size is slightly different on these - they are a couple inches narrower (the battery box opening), due to using a smaller battery. The 1500 has a wider frame/battery box, however the design and method of attachment / poor quality welds appear to be the same across all three models of scooters. But to be clear, I did not experience the problem on either my 800 or 1000, just the 1500 (so far).
Then the icing on the cake - my other Super Lithium 1500 was kept at a seasonal home in Europe. When I returned there about 4 months after this happened, I checked the other 1500 scooter, and was surprised - no, shocked - to see the exact same frame failure!!! The welds had come off at the exact same place at the top front of the frame, and the top piece of steel had peeled up away from the main box, with about a 3-4mm gap between the pieces. I couldn't believe it - I thought maybe the problem I had with the first 1500 was just a one-off thing, an anomaly that just had a crappy welding job that day at the factory. Nope - 2nd 1500, purchased several months after the first one, had the exact same issue and the exact same potentially lethal design flaw. I took this one to a welding shop, again, in my town there and also had them weld on extra metal L-brackets at the front so I could ride it in (relative) safety. They couldn't believe how the frame had just peeled apart like that.
After all this, I contacted both the manufacturer of these scooters, and Chris at Super Scooter Sales. Chris' reply was he was surprised to see it, said they had never seen that before on any other scooter. That's it. The manufacturer (very nice and helpful guy there, by the way, I was in frequent communication with him about 3-4 years ago) also said he didn't see this before, but they will look into it and strengthen that joint if needed. Well, obviously it's needed as I had 2 separate scooters exhibit the same defect, which could have easily resulted in serious injury or death.
These issues all occurred over 2 years ago - I've been mulling over posting about this for that long. I hesitated because I like the scooters, very much, and I like both Super Scooter Sales and the manufacturer. But I finally decided this story needed to be told - if it saves one other scooter user out there from seriously hurting themselves, it's the right thing to do. Knowing about this dangerous design flaw, and keeping it to myself, is something I could no longer do. I have no vendetta or ill will against Superscootersales or the manufacturer, as I said I love the scooters and like them both. And I have not purchased one of these scooters recently, so for all I know they could have taken my experience to heart and beefed up the construction and welding of that highly-stressed joint at the front top corner of the frame. If you own one of these, I urge you to check out this part of the frame on yours and make sure it's welded securely. BTW - not an Amazon verified review b/c all four of my scooters were purchased directly from Super Scooter Sales. Why 3 stars? Strongly opposing feelings on these scooters. Love riding them on the one hand, but a dangerous design flaw on the other hand, and I don't know if they have fixed it.
Very fast, throttle is very sensitive
Climbs hills just fine
Only uses electricity
Extremely heavy, this scooter weighs 97lbs! I live in an apartment complex on the 3rd floor with no elevators, so I have to lift this chunk of metal up all these stairs, no easy task believe me.
One of my battery/wire connections broke (the soldering part of it) so now I need to learn how to solder and buy a solder kit to repair it.
Be careful when braking, you don't come to a complete stop very quickly (I almost hit a person because I couldn't stop fast enough). Going down a hill is scary for me because the brakes "slide" (and I did tighten them).
Do not use in snow (seems like common sense but people will try it, like me) the scooter is fast and I wiped out on fresh snow (no ice) luckily I had my helmet on and landed on grass.
Be careful when using in rain (the battery is exposed to the outside world there are holes in the bottom of the encasement to allow air in but water splashes in also), if you live in a rainy climate as I do then use caution and avoid huge puddles. Also, I would suggest buying the splash guards (I'm glad I did) because I tried to use the scooter without it, and I came home with my whole backside covered in mud and water.
Maintenance! This is the big one and most important I think. If you are not willing to MAINTAIN and TAKE CARE of this scooter, then you should not purchase this. You have to make sure to put air in the tires, tighten the brakes, oil the chain, tighten the chain, charge the battery after every ride, wipe the motor clean, check for loose nuts and bolts. This has been like a mini car for me in terms of responsibility. You might be thinking, yeah right I don't need to do all that, but if you don't live in the state/city where Super Turbo Scooters is located, then your screwed in terms of repairs, and getting the parts can only be found on their website. So if something bad were too happen to the scooter, then that is $500+ dollars down the drain.
I have had to buy new tools (I don't already own any) because the tools they give you will eventually wear away (the metal is soft) and won't turn the bolt anymore.
This scooter may be difficult to take care of for those not willing to watch the "how-to videos" on their page or are not good with mechanical repairs (there are a ton of nuts and bolts and can be confusing for some).
Although the con list is way longer, don't let it deter you away from the scooter. It is better than those cheapo razor scooters. I am hoping these "cons" will give those seeking a portable, easy to take care of scooter to rethink about purchasing this. Please watch the video review if your still iffy on purchasing the scooter.
