One of the fastest electric scooters around that has a top speed of around 34 MPH and a range of up to 53 miles.

The Kugoo G-Booster is a budget electric scooter that’ll far exceed your expectations! This dual road sporty-looking scooter is just incredible – it rivals the speed, range, and torque of other extreme scooters, but the price that you’re getting all this for will leave you speechless. It just proves the point that a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean better quality. This electric scooter is most definitely one of the most up-and-coming e-scooters that you’ll be sure to hear more of in the not-too-distant future!

Kugoo G-Booster: The Lowdown…

The Kugoo G Booster electric scooter can be described as none other than a sensational e-scooter with great features.

Kugoo G-Booster Summary

The Kugoo G-Booster is a trendy dual-road electric scooter that’ll have your eyes tearing up from joy – or speed. The point is, you’ll be so happy with this cool-looking scooter that you’ll never look back. Dual 800W motors together with three-speed modes give you the option to speed it up or slow it down as the need arises. And with torque this powerful, you can reach incredible distances, scale impressive heights and go at phenomenal speeds with the press of a throttle. The build and quality of this e-scooter is also something else. It’s imposing, solidly built, and easy on the eyes with its black, silver, and striking red exterior. Suspension on this e-scooter is also pretty rad, with double the suspension properties. A front and rear shock absorber work together to minimise the impact of rough and bumpy ground. And the G-Booster’s 10-inch tyres aren’t too shabby either. Grippy of note, these air-filled tyres can handle the muck and mire of the unpredictable outdoors. All in all, a pretty epic ride with lots of exciting features at a super affordable price.

Speed & Acceleration

The G-Booster electric scooter has incredible acceleration, capping speeds of up to 34 MPH – which again is insane if you’re looking at the price that you’re getting these speedy wheels for. 

    Hill Climbing

    Keen on tackling hills of all sorts? The Kugoo G-Booster has mastered the art of hill-climbing too. This scooter can climb steep hills with a 35-degree gradient easily. And with a good amount of torque, too, as the motor power is designed to kick in gradually and evenly.

    Battery & Range

    The Kugoo G-Booster has an economic 48V, 23Ah lithium-ion battery with a fairly standard battery recharge time of up to 10 hours. This is minimal when you consider the extended range of 53 miles that you’re able to get out of a fully charged battery.

     

    Motor Configuration

    The G-Booster electric scooter has a dual motor output that equates to 1600 Watts of combined motor power. This translates to a lot of speed, torque, and endurance that give it the ability to reach an extraordinary max range of up to 53 miles. So, if you need to make a round trip somewhere, this scooter can go the distance.

      Performance Overview

      The Kugoo G- Booster is simply excellent when it comes to speed! Although it can reach 34 MPH, it’s also a great scooter for those just starting out, as you can choose between three-speed modes and adjust the speed settings as you go. A 48V 23Ah lithium-ion battery allows you to truly maximise your riding experience as you reach ranges of up to 53 blissful scooter miles on any terrain. Brakes are also a big deal with the Kugoo G-Booster scooter. Dual front and rear electric disc brakes make stopping easier and safer in all types of weather conditions. And 1600 Watts of motor power give this scooter the momentum and torque to go incredibly fast (up to 34 MPH) as well as traverse all types of terrain – come high or low. It is amazingly built, has solid suspension and can accommodate most riders – which is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me!

      Construction & Quality

      The construction and quality of the G-Booster electric scooter are second to none. It has an eye-catching appearance that is seriously impressive. All black with metallic red and silver finishes, this electric scooter has all the right feel-cool vibes going on. Made from aluminium alloy, this e-scooter is durable, sturdy, and made for the dirt.

      Suspension & Comfort

      The suspension of the Kugoo G Booster electric scooter is pretty unreal, too, as it features a dual suspension system. Suspension of this calibre provides a far greater resistance to the jarring impact of uneven off-road terrain, primarily. 

      Ride Quality

      Given that it’s exceptionally affordable, you wouldn’t necessarily expect it to be such a comfortable ride. The G-Booster has a sturdy stem, thick 10-inch pneumatic tyres, and better than average suspension. If you’re after a fantastic ride quality that’ll have you smiling all the way, the Kugoo G-Booster has so much to offer. Not forgetting the fact that this e-scooter is equally fit for off-road terrain too.

      Lights

      The Kugoo G-Booster comes with ample LED lighting in all the areas that count when visibility is drastically reduced. We’re talking about extra bright 10W dual front headlights, cool front deck lights, and ultra-safe dual rear lights. This means you won’t go unnoticed on this e-scooter after dark. However, you can never be too careful, especially when the sun dips, so wearing items such as a reflective jacket or sneakers can help keep you more visible when it matters.

      Braking

      Braking with the Kugoo G-Booster doesn’t get better (or safer) with its electronic front and rear disc brakes. Simply apply the brake lever on the handlebar to set the brakes in motion. Interestingly, disc brakes are considered the best brake type for e-scooters in terms of safety and reliability.

      Portability

      Folding the Kugoo G-Booster is easy to do. It has a simple screw and unscrew mechanism that will allow you to fold up this e-scooter in no time at all. Once done, you can rest assured that the folded stem won’t budge as you carry it away to its next destination.

      Speaking of which – the G-Booster is not the lightest of e-scooters. So, at a weight of 66 lbs, don’t expect to be tackling stairs or long distances while carrying this scooter any time soon.

      Tyres

      The 10-inch grippy wear-resistant tyres of the G Booster electric scooter are pneumatic. And you know what that means. They are better at absorbing the impact of bumpy surfaces than tyres that are purely solid (or airless), which is perfect for off-roading riding. However, pneumatic tyres also come with a slight drawback in that they are more prone to punctures or damages from sharp surfaces.

      Deck

      The deck of the Kugoo G-Booster is impressive. Firstly, it is larger than your average electric scooter deck. And second, it is incredibly grippy so that you won’t be slippin’ or slidin’ off this e-scooter any time soon.

      Controls & Display

      The Kugoo G-Booster has an excellent and easy-to-use, multi-range LCD display screen with a standard speed sensor that shows you what gear you’re in and how much battery life you have left well as the power (or voltage) of your battery.

      Water Resistance

      This scooter comes with a standard IP54 water resistance rating. And while that may not mean you can go riding on your scooter in the pouring rain, it does mean that the odd splash here, and there won’t cause significant damage to your scooter. 

      Reliability, Warranty & Customer Support

      The Kugoo G-Booster comes with a dependable 12-month warranty on defects caused by poor workmanship and a 6-month warranty on the battery. In addition, Kugoo also offers a 7-day return policy should you discover any material defects and wish to return your scooter for your money back. 

      Known Issues

      None

      Maintenance

      The Kugoo G-Booster is relatively simple to maintain. However, as with most things that experience wear and tear, it is advisable to check the user manual to ensure that you are giving your electric scooter the TLC it deserves (which, by the way, is not much).

      Just as long as you ensure that the battery is never left to die completely, routinely check your tyres for flats, as well as make sure the brakes are not worn down too much before you head out on the road again. Apart from these, you’re pretty much good to go!

       

      Kugoo G-Booster: Is it worth the money and is it worth buying?

      Oh, for sure! The Kugoo G-Booster is already making a name for itself as one of the best value for money scooters on the market. At a price ticket of $1200 or £882,43, the Kugoo G-Booster is unbelievably priced for the value you are getting in return. It has everything you need in an electric scooter at such a bargain price!

      It’s got speed, range, torque, and dual-road capabilities that will put its closest arch-rivals to shame. In short, if you’re on a budget but still want to experience the thrill of an e-scooter that closely matches its more expensive counterparts, this electric scooter is for you.
