Hi everyone, new member, first post:
I am trying to do my research before buying and I was hoping to get a little clarity on why there is so little discussion of the current version of the Varla Eagle One Pro.
There is a performance review (that looks pretty good to me). But this scooter doesn’t show up in any of the “best of” lists, even though it seems to outperform more than a few that do make the lists. Even when other scooters are compared in reviews, I do not see them compared to the Eagle one pro even though it seems better in many ways.
For example the new synergy tsunami review compares it favorably to: the phantom v2, the vsett 10+ and the mantis king GT. But there is no mention of the varla, which appears to outperform the new synergy by a good margin.
It isn’t just that it is rarely mentioned, I know the ESG isn’t constantly naming scooters it has already reviewed. It is that when I look scooters up in the DB the Varla seems very competitive to all those models.
I ask because I’m seriously considering buying an Eagle One Pro. I am particularly attracted to that because of the high (but not too high) top speed, hydraulic brakes, good weight capacity and thumb throttle. And I’m trying to figure out if there is something unsaid about varla that keeps them from being recommended.
The review does say the stem is a little creaky even with the new knob, but the video says that you can fix it with a little grease.
So, I would normally just email the ESG, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to do that.
