The EcoReco M5 is a beautiful, refined electric scooter. Its polished design tempts the eye and it's very practical to move around the city or to simply enjoy the nature on this thing. Due to the size and weight of the scooter, you can easily carry it if you wish so. The height can be adjusted to all sizes and it's big enough to fit two people, who should be fit themselves. The EcoReco M5 can reach twenty miles per hour(or 32 km/h) and it lasts for ten to twenty miles, which is a considerable length. The battery takes about four hours to fully recharge. It takes a few pushes on the scooter to power it up and then you go.
The frame of the scooter is made out of aluminum, which brings solidity to the scooter as well as making it hard to leave a scratch on its frame. The rubber ones don't last forever- you will have to replace them from time to time, especially if you prefer natural roads, which are filled with small obstacles, destroying the rubber on your tires. There are suspensions on the front and rear side to minimize the feel of the road under your scooter. They're very helpful, especially in the woods.
The break is on the left side of the handles. There's a trigger throttle on the right side of the handlebars, which activates after you pass two miles per hour. It takes some getting used to, but you eventually learn to expect it's pull as you're driving. It also feels less powerful as you reach higher speed. These scooters are very popular in USA nowadays, given their traffic. It's cheap, you save time plus you get some fresh air. The downside of that is the weather, which can diminish the experience, but it's worth it.
The M5 series can handle hills as well. Not necessarily the steepest ones, but you could get around a decent one. The easiest way to do it is to go straight forward without slowing down. Once the scooter loses its momentum, it takes a while to get it back to the initial speed, especially if you stop in the middle of your hill trip. Driving up hills also increases battery loss, because the motor does more work. The best EcoReco M5 driving experience is achieved on a smooth surface like asphalt. The sidewalks are a different story, they have lots of cracks and people in the way, plus a road with speeding cars is right beside you.
It's astonishing to imagine you can drive up to five hundred miles by spending one single dollar on electricity. It's so much cheaper than any other vehicle and it's one of the few with no local emissions. They aren't designed to be driven at night, with no headlights- but that can easily be adjusted. It all depends on your needs- if you're living in a big city, this would definitely bring you anywhere on time.
