Joyor is an interesting one. They actually have a handful of websites, apparently run by different entities (in addition to Joyor.us): Joyorscooter.com and Joyorscooters.com. The one without the ‘s’ is in Spain and the non ‘s’ one and Joyor.us are run by the same entity
Their prices / specs look good, but hard to compare apples to apples without actual testing. We had reached out to Joyor in the past about getting a loaner we could test but got not response. I’m guessing that’s probably why you haven’t seen much info on them anywhere.
I know how you feel about the Max (and based on your experience, I’d feel similar), but it does represent some of the best that’s out there, at least in terms of fit-and-finish. Definitely one of the better builds (though not as heavy duty as some of the beefier, pricier models). The Max we’ve had has seen a lot of pretty hard miles and has been Uber-reliable.
We’re still in the early stages of this new technology and unfortunately even the best is going to fall short of your expectations based on well-refined consumer products like the bicycle where even a cheap one from the bike shop is still quite good.
The Cruiser is a fantastic scooter. Certainly beefier than the Max, but I think slightly less refined and worse on the fit-and-finish of the ultra-mass-produced Max.
