Customer Reviews

Based on 32 reviews

Ordered it and it came 5 days later, It came included with Type B Plugs (North American) and a type G plug (UK), also included Allen keys and Instant customer service. The R1 extremely fast my only complaint is that is wobbles a little at around 40mph/70kmh.

Charles Simpson
5 star but not used it

With the current laws I have not really given it a good run, but my first impressions on materials used and build quality rates it very high, with the exception of the charging port. It looks like flimsy plastic and it moves about. It does not seem to be very well secured. It looks like a really good solid built bit of kit. Service has been first class so far.

A very nice scooter

The Solar R1 scooter is a very nice scooter to get around in, my only complaint is that the front wheel begins to wobble at around 30 mph / 48 kph, it could be because of my weight distribution onto the platform and stem perhaps? Maybe a damper is needed? I'm not sure, otherwise, this is a very nice scooter to possess. One complement I must mention is the customer service Solar Scooters provides, it is excellent, they actually take the time to answer any queries you may have about their products, a true service hard to find nowadays. Thank you Solar Scooters!
Ride safely my friends!

Amazing amazing amazing

This is now my work commuting weapon. Im a heavy 6”3 man at around 120kgs. This scooter performs exceptionally well. Not yet tested the full range capabilities as i only work 8 miles away from home. I have a feeling i will get around 25-30 miles on mode 3 dual settings.
