Mini 4 Pro 500W
The Mini 4 Pro is the perfect entry-level scooter for those looking for a very light, yet still solid and dependable cheap price electric scooter.
Built by Mini-Motors, this is a little brother to the mighty Dualtron, and comes with the same solid build and excellent engineering, and an excellent power-to-weight ratio, making this a little pocket rocket.
With a 500W motor this is rated to 40km/h, and recommended max 15 degrees climbing. 48V motor with a 13Ah battery, and range up to 45km, in perfect conditions.
The front tyre is air-filled for grip, and the rear tyre solid, however with excellent rear suspension the ride remains plush.
Max rider weight is indicated at 120kg, however our view is this is better suited to riders up to 90-100kg max. It is built strong enough, but heavier riders need more power to move them.
The construction of this scooter is excellent, with a prescise, 'snap' as it locks in place, and no annoying flexing or rattling.
Also worth considering is the 300W version, retailing at $1199, which is more lightweight, and a less-powered version for lighter riders and flatter terrain.
