There is this one scooter that I really liked the most when exploring urban places: it is the OjO Commuter Scooter. Although I didn’t get a chance to buy my own, my friend fortunately allowed me to borrow his for a week.That make me couragious to write this OjO commuter scooter review.
I tried and tested it since I am a huge fan of electric scooters since then.
Surprisingly, I really liked my test drives, ‘cept for quite few mishaps I had with some of its features.
Hence, this OjO Commuter Scooter review will tell you in detail how great is this scooter for those who wish to use it in getting to places at the metro.
The OjO Commuter Scooter generally builds on a very sleek and chic design, more like a miniature type of gasoline scooter. What I especially like about this product is that although it might seem look lightweight (it’s actually made with aluminum). The scooter surprisingly supports a maximum of 300 lbs of payload.
The scooter itself has a removable padded seat, much more like of those of a bicycle. However, the scooter itself is not foldable, hence you may want it to hitch it on the back of an SUV instead of carrying it around.
Also, you can actually choose from a variety of custom colors for your scooter. I personally like the one in white since it gives much of an urban vibe for me.
Engine Build and Speed Performance:
Comes with a 500w rear hub motor, it is capable of travelling at about a maximum of 25 mph on full charge, with a top speed of 20 mph. Performance wise, I can at least say this electric scooter is within acceptable city speed limits.
Also, the tires of the scooter made in comparison to motorcycle concepts, hence it assures the optimal and ground-gripping performance of the tires. However, I will not suggest to allow the scooter go over wet pavements or surfaces, since the tires are optimal for flat and concrete surfaces.
I don’t want you making the same mistakes I did when I experiment on it. But, that mishap taught me that I should never do it again with this scooter if ever I get to buy my own soon!
Battery Life and Other Power-Ups
The scooter comes with one lithium ion battery, yet the cool thing about this scooter is the retractable cord that is built within the unit itself.
Unlike most scooters out there that require a separate slight bulky charger, the OjO Commuter Scooter assures the fact that you can charge you electric scooter at any 110v socket available.
When it comes to other electric-based features of the scooter, one of the coolest things about this unit is that it has a built-in Bluetooth speaker. If you are a musically-inclined person the same as I am, this will be a huge thumbs up for you.
You can go cruisin smoothly on the road while playing some chill and happy music, or perhaps more like a mild version of a mad man showing off its turning skills while playing some rock music.
Other electric features of the electric scooter include rear tail light for brakes and a 4-bulb LED headlight.
One thing that sets apart the OjO Commuter Scooter from other minimalist electric scooters is that it has a built-in digital dashboard that also acts as a touchscreen one.
And this really got me! This apparently is one of the main reasons why I would love to have my own at home.
The dashboard allows you to take a quick glance on your speed, the amount of juice your scooter still has, an indicator whether your phone is connected to the scooter’s Bluetooth system.
And quick selections on turning on your headlights and increase the volume of your Bluetooth speaker.
The OjO Commuter Scooter has a built-in loud alarm system that blares off whenever it is lifted or rolled slightly by any stranger. However, one of the downsides of the scooter’s security is the possibility of using a bike lock under the rear suspensions.
The gap between the rear tire and its suspension is so small that only the thinnest of bike locks are feasible to be used. Anyways, I highly recommend that if you want to have your OjO Commuter Scooter safe from thieves, just simply store it in a safe space.
The OjO Commuter Scooter is generally a lightweight scooter. By weighing to only 65 lbs in totality, it surprised me indeed when I was checking it. However, don’t let the weight fool you.
Although it is mainly built on aluminum, the unit itself is a hefty one when it comes in size.
Another downside to it is that the OjO Commuter Scooter is not a foldable one. In order for you to carry it around, you have to at least get your scooter a hitch ride on the scooter. A separate cargo basket for the scooter sold separately.
So, if you are planning for a long and far travel and you want to bring this scooter with you, make sure that you have the right equipments in your car to serve enough space for this vehicle.
