Electric with all the Options

" My husband gave me this scooter last Christmas and I was thrilled! We had bought a 150cc scooter a couple years before, but It was too big for me to drive alone. The electric Baja scooter is Just Right. It's not too heavy or too tall for me to keep upright while stopped, and it has ALL of the features/options that my husbands 150cc scooter has - except it is 100% electric - 100% "green" -100% economical. It has a storage box mounted on the back that can be locked. The seat is good sized & will easily accomodate two adults. I have gone ~ 20 miles on one charge and have been able to maintain 20mph speeds even while going up a slight incline (~3-5% grade). But this isn't one of those electric scooters that is stripped down to bare bones in order to have more power/range - this is a full featured scooter. It has a headlight (hi & low beam), parking lights, two rear view mirrors featuring front turn signals, rear brake light, rear turn signals, rear lockable storage box, lockable storage box in front steering console, a horn, and pedals in case batteries die. And it also has a flashing light/indicator to notify you when you have an incoming call on cell phone! This one sweet scooter! "

Baja 500

" I purchased this little bike just for fun. I live in an area that is mostly big hills and wind. This bike has operated very well for me. I did take the back storeage area off, it rattled. I weight 230 pounds and this little bike carries me all over the place even up hill...I do have to help by using the pedals a little on larger hills. I am very satisfied with this bike and am very happy I purchased it. I am hoping that my wife will ride it also; the only problem is that when she finds out how fun it is I may have to purchase another one. Great little fun bike. "

" BIKE LOOKS PRETTY AND COMES ALMOST VERY LITTLE TO PUT TOGETHER BUT AFTER 23(KM) ON A FULL NIGHT CHARGE THE BIKE WAS CUTTING IN AND OUT TO THE POINT THAT I WAS GOING TO RETURN IT UNTIL I READ THE PREVIOUS COMMENT ABOUT THE MASTER SWITCH.
WHEN YOU ARE CHARGEING PUT THE MASTER SWITCH ON on-on-on.
THE BOOKLET IS WRONG IT SAYS OFF.
NOW THAT I FIGURED OUT THIS PROBLEM I'M HAPPY

" On the first day, out of the box, Broken cheap plastic side plates on rear. Frame mounts don't fit plastic covers. Frame Mounts bent to allow plastic plates, when you do finally get them installed to come in contact with the rear shock springs causing them to crack/break off. No power, will not pull any grade over 10%. Impossible to pedal. Pedals, only clear ground by an inch or so. They are too far rearward to work. Guages are metric only, no MPH only KPH. Manuals and specs. state both are included. When first stood up, the throttle handle pull completely off the bike.(only held by 1/8" thick of plastic with a single screw. It's the only way to catch the bike if it leans, yet it will not support any weight. Plastic broke off and now bike cannot be used. Northern tools staff very understanding and are ordering parts. Baja Motor Sports advises they don't have any info on the bike since it's brand new. (had to call on phone) Cannot contact Baja Motorsports for tech support on line. Cannot register, or put on insurance since there is no serial number/VIN as stated in the manual. Battery charger will not work when Master power switch is in the "off" position as manual and charger state. Only works when Master switch is in the "On" position. Bought bike for wife for her birthday, very dissappointed and would like to return it, but she say's it's so cute. That it is, great concept, but very poor quality/strength and implementation. Can anyone help?????!!!! "
