Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a license or registration to ride a scooter or motorcycle?

Yes, you need at least a car license if you wish to ride on a 50cc. Anything above that you would need a new class motorcycle license. Read more about that here. They are classified as a road vehicle and require registration and motor vehicle insurance.

But the stand up electric scooters do not.

Who can ride an electric motorcycle or moped?

Anyone who has a valid drivers license based on your category.

Where and when can you ride your electric motorcycle or moped?

You can ride the ebike anywhere where there is a road. Plus parking is a breeze. Never pay for parking again if you have to.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

Yes, you need to wear an Australian approved road helmet.

How do I recharge the battery?

Each scooter, moped or motorcycle comes with a battery charger. One end is plugged into the battery inlet and the other end is plugged into a standard power point. Easy! All we ask is you charge the vehicle using a surge protected power board and in a covered, well ventilated place.

How long does it take to recharge the battery?

If the battery is fully flat it will generally take between 3 and 9 hours to fully charge. But because these are Lithium batteries you do not need to fully charge each time. You can half charge for that little run to the shops. Charging times will vary depending on the charger and the capacity of the battery.

Do I need to wait for the battery to go fully flat before I charge it?

No you can charge after each use if you wish.  If the battery is half flat then it will take between 2 to 3 hours to fully charge again.

Does the battery recharge when riding?

On most models, yes. Check the specification and feature of the vehicle.

How long will the batteries last?

Lithium batteries will last up to 1500-2000 charges depending how you look after them. Ensure they do not go unused for periods longer than 5-6 weeks, They will not last long if left unused and not kept charged. The best place to leave your battery when not being used for a longer period of time is between 40-60%. This is where the cells will degrade the least.

Can I wash it?

Yes you can but only with a damp rang or gently hosing it down. NEVER, EVER jet wash it.

How far will I be able to travel between chargers?

This depends on the model, the battery type and many other factors.  Typically you will travel between 40 and 160 kilometres when the batteries are fully charged (depending on the amperage of the battery).  Distance will also vary depending on the weight of the rider, hilly conditions, number of stops, riding speed and what gear mode you are using.

How fast can I travel?

All 50cc comparable mopeds are limited to 50km/hr. But please when you are on the road just keep to the speed limit and everyone will be happy. 

What maintenance is needed?

The electric motor, display and controller does not require any servicing by you. Please refer to your manual for more information. All vehicles should be checked periodically and keep up with your service intervals.  Other than that, charging the battery and riding is what you should be doing. We recommend that you service at least once per year  but if you use it more than normal every 6 months.

How should I secure my scooter, moped or motorcycle?

We recommend that you take 3 precautions. Out of sight out of mind is one way where you can cover your pride and joy with a cover. That way no one is the wiser. Secondly invest in a Heavy Duty Alarm lock system. The prices range from 80-480 dollars but they are worth every cent. Lastly the classic, look, lock & leave. Remember to lock and take the keys with you. Some even prefer to take their battery with them. Next time you’re in store ask us about safety and any latest innovations.
