I can only go by MY preferences, if not looking at the price.
Weight: Emove cruiser (23kg) wins against Varla (30kg)
Range: Emove Cruiser (80km) wins against Varla (29km)
Dimensions: Emove Cruiser Wins (smaller footprint)
Tires: Emove Cruiser bigger, but tubeless pneumatic. Tie, despite better ride quality? You can get solid 10″ also, if a problem arises.
Motor: Hill climb says Varla wins
Water Resistant: IPX6 Emove Cruiser hands down
Build Quality: Emove Cruiser
Soooo, for me, the motor is the only thing pro Varla, it is heavier, bulkier and much lower range, less water resistant. Emove has a telescopic stem AND foldable handle bars.
Yeah, for ME in MY current situation, Emove Cruiser (which is for 160kg persons vs. 130kg Varla, just as an added bonus).
However, precaution: i would get tire slime and slime the tires (if not already) AND get a new tire. Even if the range goes down 30% with solid crappy tires, still more than Varla…
