The Kugoo M2 Pro is a medium range scooter with an impressive range. Weighing in at 15KG and featuring a very user friendly fold and lock system makes this scooter easily carried.
Being lightweight the Kugoo M2 Pro is perfectly designed to be folded up and taken on a bus or train. Comparing it to the xiaomi m365 and this scooter will beat it hands down on portability because it is much better balanced when folded and has a vastly superior fold mechanism.
8 1/2×2 pneumatic tyres and comes with a built-in suspension system hidden in the frame. The benefit of this is less strain on internal components than non suspension scooters as suspension removes the vibrations caused by road use.
The suspension alone will provide a smooth ride so adding the phonematic tyres to the mix means this is one smooth ride.
3 Speed Modes. Depending upon the distance you are travelling you may not want to go full speed and therefore get a bit more range. You can control the speed settings with one button on the dashboard, as well as the accelerator lever.
7.5Ah 18650 lithium battery. With any battery you are making a choice between weight and range. This battery it is a good mix between weight and range and will keep you going for upto 18 miles on eco mode, on the fastest setting you are looking at around 15 miles depending upon your weight and the terrane. In the fastest setting and adding some hills in the range will be around 14 miles
350W motor. Unlike the Xiaomi m365 you get a another 100W, this is useful when you are attempting hills as the extra power from this torque will pull you up with little problem. You will slow down slightly depending upon the gradient, but not as much as the competition. This also means the motor can pull a payload of 120KG, please note the range and speed will be affected by the weight of the rider.
A Beautiful LCD Display Screen. For the price of this scooter this is a really nice touch. The display shows you: speed, Gear, battery life, and time elapsed, it also has a trip button so you can reset if needed.
Phone app: The phone app will let you remotely access the scooter via bluetooth, Features include, Cruise control, battery state, gear select, lights, rider stats and firmware upgrades.
Bright LED Headlights & Safety Warning Taillight. You will not only light up the road ahead but let others know you are there, a great safety feature. This scooter also has a red rail light that will also illuminate when the break lever is pressed. The tail lights are built into the rear of the frame, which we see as an improvement on the tail lights that are built into the mudguard. These Brake lights are lensed LEDS so they are super bright when it matters.
IP54 rated your good to travel in the drizzle without a worry just maybe with any electric scooter stay out of the puddles and heavy rain.
Brakes, Kugoo have designed the scooter with a rear disc break, front kinetic and the mud guard can be used for emergency stopping. This is a nice touch as you may have noticed a lot of scooters these days missing the rear mudguard, you wont have that problem here.
