I think pure have done a great job and clearly have an inkling of what Uk legislation will be with the 500 watt motor, 15.5mph top speed and indicators. Looks like the best indicator implementation of any scooter and one of the few with an ip rating over ip54. Steering stabilization I get but I’m so unsure about the stance and lack of suspension. Taur hasn’t got it either but they compensate with 12 inch wheels and the rear light that projects onto the rider is great. The advance flex is £300 more than the pure advance even though it’s same range so I think that’s steep just for the fact it folds in half, for that price I was hoping it would follow what lots of folding e-bikes have, namely ability to remove the battery and charge it on its own.
I’m in two minds as to what scooter is right for me. Love the Apollo city with full suspension and tubeless tyres with the special layer and the Apollo air which is cheaper but at least has front fork suspension but neither are as portable as the pure advance. Also there aren’t many physical retailers where u can try Apollo and pure scooters out! So I like what pure have done but Apollo let the YouTube reviewers like ESG have their products and seem more open on the batteries they use etc but pure don’t seem to do that yet and I think it’s hey should put money where mouth is and let independent reviewers see what they think. I’m always wary of when battery make isn’t mentioned aswell.
My plan is wait for legalisation and then see what reviews say and I suspect I will end up a pure owner!
