If you’ve been shopping for the best electric scooter for your commute to work, you might be surprised to find so many companies competing for your business. As the cost of building an electric scooter decreases, many knock-off designs emerge from Asia to compete with versions in the US. One company in particular, Super Cycles and Scooters, has gone to great lengths to combat what it refers to as, “fake versions” appearing online. These scooters are often sold in bulk and look exactly like Super Cycles’ popular Super Turbo 800 Elite model.
The company even has a video online in which they compare, part by part what makes their original scooter superior to the knockoff version. The owner of Super Cycles gives a thorough demonstration of the value of quality in their manufacturing, and even shows how they differ in shipping practices. In short, they make a case for how it really does make sense to spend the extra few dollars to get the original version.
Saving money on a scooter is obviously the goal when shopping, but take the time to make sure that price is not your only deciding factor. Other factors include warranty time, part quality and service from the point of sale on. While the cost of building the best electric scooters may be falling, the complexity is increasing and it pays to get the most for your commuting dollar.
