Yep, i definitely see <500W basically all the time, if i see e-scooters, which makes sense. Money, affordability and … utility. A large e-scooter and apartments may not be compatible or even needed.
Which is also the legal limit (if not banned separately) without paying tax/insurance. My entry level Gotrax sees the rear wheel of better scooters quite often though^^ That is fine, next year upgrade or something 🙂
