    “Is it heavy?”

    “Yes.”

    “Then put it down, it’s expensive.”

    Yes, this scooter is heavy. And yeah, it’s expensive. But it’s worth it. I have a gas model as well, but it’s far too noisy to ride at night. I can cruise up and down the street on this at 3 AM, and not bother a soul.

    The front disc brake is incredibly responsive. I’ve already had to perform a few “emergency stops,” and the brake worked just fine. I weigh 220 lbs, and this scooter doesn’t seem to be straining to move or stop me, which I like.

    Another reviewer mentioned that this scooter seems like something that someone would build in their backyard. I completely disagree with that statement. This has a solid frame, folding handlebars (which allow you to carry the scooter like a suitcase), a motor that will propel you to 20 mph (18 or 19 if you’re my weight), mechanical disc brake that actually WORKS, and the throttle has three indicator LEDs to let you know the status of your batteries.

    This is not a thrown-together garage project. This is a finely crafted (in the USA), well-finished product. Oh, and Go-Ped’s customer service is absolutely top notch. If something’s wrong, they’ll make it right.

    Previous reviewers are correct in describing this product as a fine piece of engineering, but it isn’t for everyone.

    My experienced…

    In my case, I bought the scooter with the intention to run errands around the neighborhood, but the short range limited what I could do. For example, I could only make one trip to the market before the battery needed recharging, and that’s with the addition of only two or three bags of groceries or the equivalent of a full backpack. Once, I tried to do a couple of errands in one day and the scooter left me stranded. The motor heated up too much, the batteries lost their charge, and I had to walk several blocks home. After this experienced I tried commuting with it, but it was too heavy and clumsy to get it on and off the bus to make it practical. It does turn heads, and makes for a nice conversation piece, but now it’s mostly used for recreational purposes. In essence, it has become a nice expensive toy.

    Target audience…

    1. College kids would love it. They could go from the dorm or the parking lot to class and back with ease.
    2. Construction workers could maneuver around the site with no problems.
    3. People who work in large areas, like golf courses, parks, dams, universities, buildings, etc. can find this scooter useful.

    Last note…

    The scooter was designed to be a useful piece of equipment. It is well made and will last a long time, but it’s practical applications are limited. Do not buy it as a toy for a child. It’s motor is too strong and the frame is too heavy to trust a child with it. It was design for older people. If you have the cash to spare, then get it. Riding it will make you feel like a child again.

    Fastest longest lasting electric scooter in its class, January 28, 2009

    David in the suburbs (LA suburb, CA) –

    I’ve had the ESR750EX for about 3 months now. It’s my 4th or 5th electric scooter. The 750 goes for me about 6.5+ miles in turbo mode with a 150lb rider. What most specs don’t tell you is that they are for the “ideal condition” that is no hills, even terrain, no stopping and starting. It’d probably go 9+ miles in economy. In turbo mode its going 20+ mph which I was pleasantly surprised by.

    Sealed lead acid batteries (SLA) which the standard ESR750EX has and practically every other scooter are the most common out there and have been. Li-Ion batteries cost hundreds more. A Li-Ion Goped costs double $2000. SLA batteries costing $80 would cost $500 for Li-Ion. They are lighter, hold charges longer but cost more too which is why they aren’t on every scooter already.

    The Goped 750 is pretty light for what you’re getting. An Izip 1000 I had was extremely heavy, 85lbs. Long and clumsy and extremely hard to put in the trunk of my car which I only did 2 or 3 times. It was all solid metal. The LashOut scooter at $399 is your best bet for “off roading” and was my favorite most bang for your buck. It has dual suspension in the back. You can go off curbs, up curbs, on grass without a problem long grass. Big 16″ tires very durable and practical not just for off-roading or on dirt. The tire size, deck and suspension gave me a solid very safe sturdy ride and made tight corners easy. The only minor improvement I’d say was the 1/2 inch metal deck’s edges could havbe been rounded off more when your legs are against it wearing shorts.

    The Goped is good too but doesn’t have any suspension but the Razor’s, IZIPs and Schwinn’s don’t either. Because the 750 goes SO fast you’ll notice the bumps in the pavement more at first. It is well made and durable, solid wood deck, solid metal frame, and the optional seat attachment is solid metal also but not excessively heavy. Goped is known for being a higher end scooter and is light enough and “compactable” enough to pick up without hurting your back. There is a “break-in” period which the manual states to ride it a few times in econo mode for the batteries to be able to get fully charged.
