The same 350W motor from previous models is included in the GMAX Ultra as well. The motor wattage is perfect for the batteries and the range of the electric scooter. We found this steady balance between an effective speed and overall range to ensure you get the most out of your ride. Plenty of reflectors, headlight and reactive tail light keep you illuminated during those evening rides if you need to make a quick trip for some late night snacks. 

The GMAX Ultra is a truly incredible electric scooter.

We were noticing through our social media and support messages that more and more people were asking for an e-scooter with suspension. We listened. The G Pro is our first electric scooter to feature dedicated suspension other than our shock-absorbing tires. The G Pro also does not require a kickstand, the balance of the third wheel takes care of that. We also included the integrated tiller lock so you don't have to worry about it rolling away. 

We are constantly looking at all of our social media channels and customer support lines for ways to improve our electric scooters for adults. This July we are bringing something to shake-up the norm and take our next step in the electric scooter world.
