This scooter is longer, wider and bulkier than those I’ve had before, but. I Love almost everything about it. The modern design, the batteries last for days on a full charge, plenty of power, superb clearance (specially for higher thresholds), sleek and adjustable steering column, intuitive controls and the captains chair with headrest is by far way more comfortable than any of those low-back chairs on other scooters, allowing me to sit comfortably for longer periods of time.
The basket in front is large/deep and holds everything I need to carry around with me. The foot platform is large and wide, allowing me to carry several grocery bags easily while still having plenty of room for my feet.
The drive levers are wonderfully functional, the built in curve for fingers for a pull down motion is intuitive. I’d say the single most awesome feature, being the main reason I opted for this model, is the SUSPENSION! I Love the smooth ride! Anyone who’s had a scooter without suspension knows what a torture that is, going over even the slightest floor blemish, extension cords, thresholds, etc. will cause jarring and uncomfortable jolts to the back.
HOWEVER, I believe it also has an inherent design flaw: At the front of the platform it has these 2 squarish like “wings” (part of the platform) that stick out to the sides of the front wheel.
I’m guessing this might be to either protect the front wheel or something to that effect, but whoever designed it has no clue or never used a scooter because in reality they are totally useless and a major problem when trying to maneuver/turn through tight doorways, around corners, turning near furniture, etc. They will scrape anything in the way and I’ve left scratch marks, dents and holes on many doors, door jambs, walls and furniture because of them. I’d cut them off if they weren’t part of the frame.

Being a paraplegic I use this scooter full-time for mobility (in lieu of a wheelchair), primarily inside but also outside/around my house.
