For those seeking the perfect adult electric scooter for allround and commuting use, something that feels safe and dependable and is so easy to use, the InMotion S1F ticks many, many boxes.
InMotion are a highly-respected manufacturer renowned for their uncompromising pursuit of quality and dependability over fashion and flashy features.
Tall in stature with a lovely long deck for a roomy, relaxed riding position, plus a single-press startup button, this scooter invites a hop-on-and-go approach. The single brake lever operates front (mechanical) and rear (electric) dual braking, and leaves your right hand free to operate the thumb throttle.
Here is a model that matches high-level engineering with classic, clean design, and offers performance that vastly surpasses what a glance at the spec sheet might suggest.
Firstly, we are talking a high-torque 500W motor matched to a 54volt system that peaks at 1000W and offers truly impressive hill-climbing and top speed. 40kmh on flat road, plus physics-defying range at a factory-stated up to 80km (under lab test conditions). Real-world range will be less, and more so for heavy riders in hilly terrain, but still mighty impressive.
Water-resistance is taken very seriously, with a true IP55 chassis and IP 67 battery and internal controller, meaning at last there is a scooter built for New Zealand conditions!
A quick and solid folding mechanism eliminates annoying flex and wobbles, and makes for a confident riding experience. This model offers true excellence in the allround/commuter category, and will suit both first-timers in the scooter space and experienced riders seeking simplicity and safety.
