I live in Thailand and have been researching electric kick scooters for a while, particularly on Alibaba and Aliexpress, where I make nearly all my online purchases for a whole variety of products. I was looking for a well engineered scooter, with large capacity, 48v Li-ion 18650 cells, and around 1000w motor.. Something my 9 year old daughter would love to ride in addition to her electric fat bike, and be interesting enough for me to use for running around our village when she is at school!
I then came across Kerrymotor on Alibaba, who specialise in manufacturing a small range of electric scooters and ebikes. They were promoting their new L8 Dual motor, 10" wheeled 800w motor powered scooter, with the option of a 20ah 48v battery pack, front and rear suspension and disc brakes, with folding seat and stem, front and rear led lighting etc for 550USD complete.
After receiving very prompt and professional responses to all my questions, and being offered Door to Door shipping by Air for a additional 220usd I decided to make the order and paid the 770usd by international bank swift transfer to their company bank in HK.
The scooter was shipped within days, and we received photos of our large box being handed over to the shipping agent.
It duly arrived in Thailand, and as promissed, their shipper managed to get it through customs without me having to pay any import duty or vat in Thailand, despite the official import duty being 60% of CIF value plus 7%Vat.. What a result!
The scooter arrived within days after to our home address, and I'm not sure whether it was my daughter or I who was the most impatient and excited to open the box!
Well, the scooter was even better manufactured than I'd hoped.. It is really superbly built and finished and amazing value for money. A switch on the handlebar let's you select Single or Dual motors, and the Colour Lcd display gives the option of 3 levels of power. I have already seen 50kph on the speedo in Power 3 with dual motors. It accelerates quicker than my Mxus 3000w powered Fatbike.. It really amazing! Yet on Power 1,with single motor it is very docile and easy to ride.
I have removed the Footboard, and the battery, wiring and controller are all very nicely installed, and the battery although it must be Chinese cells, appears to have loads of punch and range, matching the 30ah rating and specs indicated on the label.
I think this scooter is a steal at the price, and the service from Kerrymotor and their Patrick Du has been exemplary. He has even offered to supply a spare pair of tyres and tubes free of charge.. I just have to pay the postage.. How's that for customer service.
I can't recommend this scooter or manufacturer enough...
