Which scooter is right for me?

Choosing the right scooter these days can be overwhelming with all the available options.


A multitude of brands, models, colors, and choices can make it hard to narrow down which one is right for you. 


Just like choosing a new car, you probably wouldn't buy a Lamborghini if it's outside your price range and your main purpose is to use the scooter for short inner-city commuting, nor would you buy a Prius for the racetrack.


So how do you choose the right scooter? Well first, you have to decide what's most important to you. Maybe start with your price range first. Is money no object? Are you looking for speed and performance? Or is portability king? Is form or function more important to you? 


You probably want all of the above though, don't you?


Unfortunately, we're not quite there yet, but in the meantime we have a full range of scooters to meet your demands and needs, whatever they might be. 


From the ultra-light and portable Apollo Air and Air Pro, to the top-of-the-line feature-packed Apollo Phantom, we have a variety of options to find your perfect match. 


It may be tempting to jump right to the top-of-the-line Phantom. Go big or go home, right? Well, it's not for everyone. If it's your first ever scooter and you're not used to power and torque, you may find it to be a bit too much. 


Ask yourself what specs are most important to you, and what kind of performance are you looking to get out of your scooter? Also what are your riding conditions like, and your average rider weight? 


Do you need a scooter for commuting to work, or just for fun? How portable does it need to be? 


When comparing specs, it's important to note that as far as speed and range go, we usually test it with an average rider weight of ~160-180lbs, and range test is always on the lowest speed settings. While most of our scooters can support up to 265lbs, some of the smaller scooters may experience less power and range even if you are under that number. 


The Phantom is built like a sports car, and wants to go fast. Real fast. All the time. Even at slower speeds you can feel it's just itching to go go go. 

If you want something that still has enough speed and power to be fun, but won't kick you off your seat, and is portable enough to bring into the office or load into your car, perhaps the Ghost or Explore would be better options for you. 


Or if your main concern is urban portability, and you wouldn't say you're someone with a need for speed, the Apollo City or the Air/Air Pro would fit that bill. 


There are a variety of different factors that go into choosing the right scooter for yourself, and we want to help you find your perfect match. 


We recommend that all our customers do their research before committing to such a large purchase, but if you need help narrowing your choices down, or just want confirmation that the scooter you're about to buy is a good fit, feel free to reach out to our support team who will always be more than happy to help. 


Feel free to email us at support@apolloscooters.co with more questions, or start a live chat directly on our website! 


We hope to see you on an Apollo Scooter soon, and ride safe.
