Obviously, price also needs to be considered. I need to bring it inside, it needs to fit in s/o else´s trunk if needs be and carrying with one hand while opening doors and such is just … nice. That is why i actually got one. Not arrived trenched in sweat and bringing inside at destination etc.
20kg soft cut-off
inexpensive (not necessarily cheap)
passing trunk test
not requiring insurance and such, so under 500W and 32km/h max
Prefer honeycomb tyres. Or at least rear tyre not air filled.
Range needs to double at least (9km real range now)
Range and price are kinda limiting the weight and footprint anyways, so beast scooters are not really an option anyways (lest i forfeit the non-insurance requirement). If i CURRENTLY have to sacrifice portability and convenience, why not getting a low-cost bicycle without range limitations in addition to my current scooter for the 5% of the times i wished i had more range without charging stops?
