I’m trying to weigh up a few scooters given my circumstances and would appreciate any thoughts people might have.
I live in NYC and have got used to the no subway lifestyle this past year and would use a scooter mainly for commuting. That said I would like something fun too in the context of city riding. I’d rather spend a little more on a scooter than get one that I start looking for an excuse to upgrade. Space is at a premium in my apartment.
I was thinking a Mantis 8 Pro since it seems like a ‘serious’ scooter with compactness in mind. Wasn’t sure if the Pro was overkill for city riding versus the plain 8, or if the Pro was a bit too much power for the smallish tubeless tires. That said the Phantom seems like it has a lot of great features, but larger and heavier.
Would be curious what people thought of these two, or any other scooters. Good choices? Overkill for dense city riding?
