Swagtron has launched two affordable electric scooters for as little as $199!
This week, Swagtron released a product announcement. This time, the company introduced two new electric scooters that are relatively inexpensive: Swagger 7 and Swagger 8.
Swagtron called the Swagger 7 electric scooter "an affordable commuter scooter" which seems to be correct. The scooter is priced at $440, but the current entry price is only $399, one of the most affordable scooters of the time. The Swagger 7 is not equipped with a lot of fancy features, although it is one of the few electric scooters that offer removable batteries on the market.
The 6.4 Ah battery on the Swagger 7 is not large and has a capacity of only 230 Wh. But it can support a cruising range of about 8 miles (13 kilometers). This is definitely a scooter designed for travel in the city, not some other suburban commuter scooters, which offer more than 50 miles (80 km) of battery life. In addition, the user can choose to add a detachable battery, which means you can quickly change the battery, so that the Swagger 7's cruising range can be doubled.
The car is equipped with a 250 W front hub motor that is wrapped in an 8.5-inch vacuum tire, while the 8.5-inch rear tire is a pneumatic tire. The car has a double brake, the front wheel is the motor brake, and the rear wheel is equipped with a disc brake. The 27.5 lb (12.4 kg) scooter can carry a rider weighing 265 lbs (120 kg) with a top speed of 15 mph (25 km/h).
Swagger 8 electric scooter
For younger drivers, Swagtron offers the Swagger 8 electric scooter. The scooter's motor is smaller than the Swaager 7, rated at only 200 W, and has a kick-start function. The Swagger 8 weighs only 12 pounds (5.5 kg) and is equipped with a rider of up to 150 pounds (68 kg), so you can't ask for too much.
Due to its light weight and load-limiting weight, this electric scooter can reach 10 miles (16 kilometers) but continues to travel at a top speed of 15 miles (25 km/h). .
The Swagger 8 is equipped with a 5.5-inch small wheel, preferably on a smooth ground because I don't want to fall into the big hole. However, the scooter is equipped with a suspension damping system, so even on a less flat bicycle lane, its performance is still possible.
Swagger 8 is priced at half the size of Swagger 7, with an entry price of $199 and a suggested retail price of $220.
If you have the ability to buy a $1,200 electric scooter or a $4,000 electric bike, you should definitely buy it. However, if a $299 electric scooter or $999 electric bike is more in line with your budget (you don't mind giving up some fancy features), then Swagtron seems to be within your choice.
Swagtron 7 looks like a good quality electric scooter we've seen before; it shows that this electric scooter is solid enough. In addition, the detachable battery is a nice (and rare!) feature that makes charging easier.
