Anyone who has ridden a bicycle or driven a car can easily ride a SnR, but you should practice in a large open area such as a carpark, at first. We also strongly recommend you keep in low-speed mode until you are very familiar with the scooter.
No, but it is not recommended that anyone under 16 uses the SnR. You should also only take your scooter near a roadway if you are familiar with traffic regulations.
We strongly recommend that you wear a helmet when riding any scooter.
The SnR2 is a Pre-Mobility scooter. This means it is designed for people who may be finding that their agility and walking ability is not what it used to be, and people who have started getting mobility problems, but not for people who are severely restricted in their ability to walk.
The SnR (tall tiller) version is targeted at the warehouse, school, patrol type environment, or for recreational use. It is envisaged that people with mobility problems would be better suited to the smaller tiller SnR2.
No it is very simple, with only one handle to undo, and the electrical cable to unclip. Watch Dismantling Demo
Transport NZ guidelines state that you should keep off the road whenever possible, e.g if there is a pavement or walkway. You should take extra care if you have to travel on the road for short distances.
The SnR is designed for use on flat, hard surfaces such as pavements, corridors, etc.
The scooter has a top speed of about 24 km/hr.
Yes, we offer a warranty on our scooters and batteries. See here
We supply three years cover with the AA with every scooter bought in NZ. We give you an 0800 number to call if you find yourself in a situation of emergency, so you need never worry.
The type of battery used with the scooter is available through any good battery dealer in NZ.
Yes, but the more you go uphill the quicker the battery will run out. The SnR is designed to handle a maximum slope of about 12 degrees but can cope with steeper, for short distances.
We recommend an optional seat, either the bicycle seat or the folding seat (with backrest).
You can also have your scooter supplied with black knobbly tyres if you prefer (at extra cost).
A fully charged battery will take you about 30 km on level terrain.
The lifespan of the batteries varies according to usage, but they normally last 175 full recharging cycles.
