For most, the convention of the standard mobility scooter suits their motivational necessity adequately. Safe and conservative, they not only take on the role of pedestrian but epitomize it. In some though, the rebellious spirit lives and staid riders like the EV Rider Transport and Ev Rider Stand N Ride don’t compel them. It is for these daring souls the SportRider was created.
In fact, this 3-wheeled scooter may be perfect for former bikers who, because of motorcycle injuries, now need a mobility scooter. The SportRider is a brute, weighing 410 to 430 lbs. depending on the batteries. This beast is neither foldable nor portable -- it can't be picked up and placed it into a car trunk, though it might be hefty enough to tow a car. It looks like a motorcycle because actual motorcycle parts are used. The SportRider features full front and rear suspension, a top speed of 9.3 mph, a turning radius of 43 inches, 14-inch aluminum alloy rims with road-rated pneumatic tires, and water-proof chrome accent housings. The dash has back-lit digital displays with odometer, trip meter, battery charge indicator and clock.
The SportRider also comes with modular plug & play electronic components for easy maintenance and repairs. Featuring an electromagnetic braking system, it is driven by a 1300-watt, 4-pole brush motor. Its range is between 20 and 30 miles depending on the batteries, which are charged off-board for 6 to 8 hours, and it boasts a load capacity of 450 lbs. The throttle is a one-hand twist grip. For additional safety, it comes with large LED headlights, taillights with turn signals, and a left side rear-view mirror. A high-back, contoured orthopedic swivel seat with armrests provides more comfort, while a generous ground clearance of 5 inches and a maximum climbing angle of 12 degrees further sets this scooter apart. This rider comes in tough black and chrome, and options from cup holders to canopies are available to really deck it out. And for less money than the delicate Shoprider Flagship, users of this scooter can feel like they were indeed "Born to Be Wild."
it's a good idea to give everyone the feel of a motor cycle...
