It has a 45 mile range on full charge. Total all up cost will be just over $2500. For an extra $250 you can have MP3 fitted, for an extra $480 you can have solid tyres fitted. I'm just going for the upgrade motor, 800W.
I strongly advise the solid tires. My wife has a power wheelchair that came with tubes in the wheels. They were constantly deflating due to the hub design. The solid tires made all the difference in ride and handling, and of course, durability. The tread has lasted much longer on the solids. Of course she's in her "ride" 24/7.

WOW... just checked it out. The solid tyres to fit the scooter I'm getting work out at nearly $490 for a set..!! I just think, for the time being, I'll be careful where I go to. Roads around us are pretty good though.

We have two 'classes' of mobility scooters over here. Class 2 are for sidewalk use only, with a max speed of 4mph. Class 3 (mine) are for full road use and sidewalk but you have to have a governor to restrict your speed to the sidewalk 4mph. And they must have lights front and rear, turn indicators, brakes etc. No insurance or road tax are needed.

Im sure if you put knobbley tires on it you wil have to put inner tubes and then you could use fix a tire goopy stuff in them to prevent flat tires. Enjoy your new found freedom.

Look, all performance upgrades are pointless until you get it painted with flames. :D

Needs a sissy bar and some ape hangers.

Maybe a nice set of leather saddlebags and some whitewalls, too.

Saddlebags I could do.. whitewalls, over here, are sooooo LIBERAL..!! I'd have to lie and tell everyone they were on it when I bought it..!!

OH guys... time for some forum input. I'm trying to decide which helmet to get. Now I don't, legally, need a helmet but, after due consideration, I feel an overwhelming need to make a statement. So here's a couple of ideas.. there will be more..

What's your preference?

Or what about this...?

I like the first helmet, but you'd better get permission from The Rev. She has more votes than you and all of us combined!
