The Zoom hydraulic brakes, though effective, are susceptible to air bubbles, warranting careful maintenance. Weighing in at 137 lbs., the scooter leans towards the heavier side, which could pose a challenge for some users. The locking mechanism for the removable battery could benefit from enhanced durability, as the cover tends to shift out of place.
