This is the “Harley of electric scooters”, though it does not have anything that Harley-Davidson motorcycles are known for, except maybe the handlebars. Unlike the legendary motorcycle this two-wheeler is powered by a very quiet 2000W electric motor in the rear wheel, which is plenty of power, so you will be able to hit the top speed of 30 mph easy. You will also be able to ride up some serious inclines, even 20 –25 degrees.
The battery on the model we’ve tested has the largest capacity of 30Ah, the most expensive version, but it is worth every extra dollar. With this battery you will be able to travel 50 miles before you’d have to charge again. In the ideal conditions, if you cruise on flat ground all the time, you will probably be able to hit even the advertised max range of 65 miles. However, if you drain the battery completely, you will have to wait 6 to 8 hours for it to be on full charge again.
EDrift ES295 offers smooth and comfortable ride. The seat is pretty comfortable, there is a front shock suspension, and it would be perfect if there were some suspension in the back, but the extra-large pneumatic tires do a nice job in dampening the ride over bumps.
Steering is ok, it is not able to turn on a dime, but you will be able to manoeuvre by leaning into the turn. It is a pretty big scooter, so you won’t be able to edge your way through narrow spaces, but it is not what eDrift ES295 is built for anyway.
This electric ride has all the features needed for a safe ride, just like motor scooters. There is a headlight, brake lights, review mirrors and a horn. Dual hand-operated hydraulic disk brake system slows the scooter smoothly and it’s able to bring you to a stop quickly and safely if needed.
The best part of this scooter is that two people can comfortably ride on it. The seat is large enough, and the impressive weight limit of 350 pounds ensures that you won’t lose much of the performance even with someone else onboard.
