Solar R1 Electric Scooter
Built on an entirely new platform, the Solar R1 is built for speed, maneuverability and comfort. Featuring 2 powerful brushless 1600w performance electric motors for a maximum output of a massive 3200w -- the Solar R1 accelerates with incredible pulling force and jets from a standstill. The performance motors enable a new top speed of up to 50mph enabling it to destroy any hills or inclines thrown at it. The lithium-ion battery has a colossal range of around 40-45 miles, dependent on user weight and terrain. With a brand new suspension system, similar to that of the Solar FF -- the R1 has the most comfortable ride you will experience on an e-scooter of this class. Going over most terrains is effortless and virtually all bumps and vibrations are absorbed by the swing arm. See, and be seen with the new Dual Laser Headlights. These are extremely bright LED lights and will ensure greater safety when riding at night -- For even greater safety the R1 features powerful Hydraulic Brakes.

Both the front and rear tyres have custom designed Hydraulic brakes for maximum control in braking with minimum force required. A rear LED light has also been integrated in the rear fender.

Hydraulic Brakes - Equipped with high standard hydraulic brakes on both the front and rear wheels of the R1, braking has never been easier and more comfortable on such a powerful scooter. The braking system which is partly electronic will keep braking at ease. The R1 also has rear large fender , this prevents any back splash from water or dirt keeping the scooter deck clean.

NOTE: We highly recommend to use safety equipment such as helmets, pads and gloves.
So after only a month I change my review entirely.
The front end is terrible and wants to fold on cornering.
My bearings are not right, there's play in the suspension.
The vibration is unbearable and gives me numb hands and a headache.
Not only that but I cannot get mine to or above 40mph so the 50mph max speed is either a lie or is running on a stand on its own.
The company aren't much fun to deal with either.
Save the money and get an xiomi pro2
Awesome scooter gets me to work and back
Wow its like batman's motorbike in mini.
Had it up to 34mph before bailing out on day 1.
Also taken the dog for a walk and found it very balanced and easy to control at very slow speeds.
Lots of smiling and fun energy it has given me.
As for the kit, brakes, tyres, alarm, lights, etc all adds up to a really satisfying purchase.
Many thanks Solar xx
R1 is a very good scooter. One thing I found inconvenient- holes for head light attachment placed not in the middle so when it’s dark I can see the road on the left but not in front of me.
R1 update I have gone through hell it started back in February when I come off my R1 I felt a wobble and the handle bar moved uncontrollably my operation was about 3 hours with a screw now Inserted into my shoulder ligaments I always found a wobble on this scooter I have paid the ultimate price my shoulder should be back to normal in half a year I will never touch a scooter again especially fast and powerfull ones like this I hope no one else has to go through this mental physical and financial worry iam going througn. Full protection full motorbike helmet and good luck. You Will need it....
