The EMOVE Cruiser is the best, affordable long-ranged electric scooter we’ve reviewed recently. Its energy-conserving controller and 600 W electric motor, combined with a large 1560 watt-hour battery allow it to attain an incredible 50 miles during our recent real world range test.
In addition to its outstanding range, the Cruiser is also loaded with numerous premium features including tubeless pneumatic tires, dual suspension, a loud horn, and turn signals. It is one of the few scooters with an official water resistance rating of IP67 — meaning that it can be ridden in the rain as long as it is not submerged in water and its seals are intact.
The Zero 10 is a bigger, more powerful Zero 9, though it still has just a single electric motor. Its 1000W electric motor and 25 amp controller give it much faster acceleration, greater top speed, and better hill climbing ability. It doesn’t quite have the same 50 miles of real-world range that you can expect from the Cruiser, but its 936 watt-hour battery should give around 30 miles, depending on riding conditions.
