Electric mopeds are gaining in popularity over their petrol counterparts. Ideal for delivery companies, food outlets and commuters this is for sure a market now being taken a great deal more seriously and being also seen too with even more importance also. Speed, size, weight, range, reliability and cost are just a few of the factors you need to take into account when making your decision as there are so many various models out there in the market in this day and age now. |
If you’re unsure how to buy an electric moped then researching the quality of ride is a good place to start. As more and more brands leap into the market on an almost weekly basis around the world, like with buying a car, you need to test and survey what there is on offer out there for you to buy. The ride quality of some e-mopeds is so bad that they can’t be ridden for more than 1 mile on anything less than a perfect surface. These e-scooters look great on a web page, but many people stop using them because they are ‘bone shakers’.
Suspension on an e-scooter works the same as a car, smoothing out bumps and shocks from the ground. Think about if you’re going to be riding off-road or on rough terrain and if so, suspension might be a key consideration when looking to buy an electric moped. This can make a world of difference to how smooth the ride is and in turn the levels of comfort also. This should all be a large part of the buying decision and making sure you are going to tick off all of the correct boxes when you make your final decision too.
An electric scooter motor has an average ‘rated’ power and peak power output. The higher the motor’s wattage, the more power it can produce bringing improved acceleration and hill climbing ability. Most ‘budget e-scooters’ start at 250 watts and reach top speeds of 15mph. These models won’t be able to climb hills and will likely struggle to reach their top speed if you weigh more than 80 kilograms. We recommend that you upgrade to a model that rates with at least 350 Watts and that you consider powering up further from there if you want to tackle hills regularly or if you are above average size.
