EMOVE RoadRunner SE: The Most Practical Seated Electric Scooter For $799?

by Nathan Schaumann

The EMOVE RoadRunner SE is Voro Motors’ latest PEV, it is tied with the EMOVE Touring at $799 for their most affordable PEV, and just might also be their most practical PEV. We previously reviewed the EMOVE RoadRunner and the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro, but the RoadRunner SE slashes the price almost in half (compared to the base RoadRunner) and delivers the same quality, design, removable battery functionality and portability in a 30lb frame! Read on for more details on the RoadRunner SE, and for our opinion on whether or not you should buy this scooter.

Things We Love

Security Features: The Emove RoadRunner SE comes with a key ignition, making it impossible for a thief to ride the scooter away, and with a key-locked battery mount, making it impossible to remove/steal the battery. In order to steal and actually ride the scooter, one would have to purchase a new key ignition mechanism, and the battery would be stuck in there forever. A great theft deterrent!

Weight: We are quite astounded at the weight of the RoadRunner SE. The base RoadRunner weighs 55 lbs and the RoadRunner Pro weighs 114 lbs, so it’s crazy how they got the weight down to 19 lbs (without battery) using the same frame and most of the same components. 19 lbs easily passes the “1-finger lift test” and would be super convenient to toss in the back of a car or bring on a train/bus.

Price: The EMOVE RoadRunners have a reputation of quality, and $799 is about the best price you’ll find for a seated electric scooter of similar quality/features.

Room For Improvement

Suspension: While the RoadRunner SE does have front suspension, we’d like to see rear suspension as well, especially because on a seated electric scooter your knees can’t help cushion any bumps or potholes.

Power: 350W is not very powerful for an electric scooter motor, and the RoadRunner SE would be pretty much at the back of the pack when it comes to acceleration tests, top speed, or hill climbing. If you’re looking for power, this is not your scooter. Also, we would not recommend this scooter for heavier riders.

Conclusion: The Freshly Charged Take

The Emove RoadRunner SE certainly fills a gap in the market – ultra lightweight seated electric scooters with proven reliability. If that’s the category you’re looking for, then this is by all means the scooter for you. Pick yours up here at Voro Motors!
