Go-Ped ESR750 Hoverboard Electric Scooter

Product ReportGp-Ped ESR 750

This is a review of the Go-Ped ESR750 Electric Scooter. This scooter has 3 varioations, the ESR 750, ESR 750 Ex, and ESR 750H. The first one is the base model, the Ex has larger batteries for longer range, and the H has the larger batteries as well as a front and rear suspension system.

This is a high-end adult electric scooter with a very powerful motor and top speeds of 20 MPH. Go-Ped has improved the ESR 750 line of electric scooters since 2008 (larger Rare Earth magnets, brush drag, reduced resistance, higher motor RPM), resulting in lower operating temperature and greater reliability and life span. Naturally this all comes at a price, since a Go-Ped ESR 750 electric scooter will cost in excess of $1,000.

The high price really does provide a number of technological innovations and unique capabilities to Go-Ped scooters. The most important ones are the auto-adjusting chain tensioner, dual performance modes (Econo or Turbo mode, to go "twice as far half as fast" or "twice as fast half as far"), on-board charger and tweakable electronic controller. The motor is capable of producing more than 1 BHP of power, which results in excellent acceleration and top speed. This also means that this model can easily handle steeper hills as well. Since this model is essentially a hoverboard, it is easy to take the handle bar off, making shipping and storage convenient. Download the Go-Ped ESR instruction manual.


Consumer Feedback

"I've had the ESR750EX for about 3 months now. It's my 4th or 5th electric scooter. The 750 goes for me about 6.5+ miles in turbo mode with a 150lb rider, but on hilly terrain. It'd probably go 9+ miles in economy. In turbo mode its going 20+ mph which I was pleasantly surprised by."
David - Amazon.Com
"It has the best ride of all scooters available, strong motor, good for almost anything... The down side is that it has a cheap build in my opinion."
Avi - Amazon.com
"I just got one about 6 months ago and will have to buy the front suspension kit which costs about $233. This model has firm suspension so anything less than a perfect smooth surface is rocky, especially since it goes so fast."
Cali - Amazon.com
"The look is very nice and stylish. It looks like high quality work, a nice stylish piece of machine. It's still light for an electric scooter..."
L.Shaeffer - Amazon.com

Based on the above consumer testimonials, we can say that the GoPed ESR750H is a very powerful, but expensive electric scooter. Due to its top speed, it is intended only for adults. The scooter is very high-tech, with features not present in less costly competitors. There are mixed reports on the build quality of the scooter, the official manufacturer information implies that good quality alloys ('aircraft quality") were used in designing the GoPed ESR750H.

About the Manufacturer

Go-Ped was created in 1985 by Steve Patmont and his family in California, USA. The first model was a folding motorized scooter, that the family manufactured in their garage for their friends and family.

Realizing the business opportunity in such transportation vehicles, the Patmont Motor Werks was created. Keeping manufacturing in the USA (in contrast with most manufacturers), PMW is a renowned player and innovator in the market of portable transportation. They introduced the ESR 750 electric scooter range int 2003, as a green alternative for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint, but still want a motorized transportation experience.

Being an innovative company, PMW owns a number of patents in the industry motorized, electric and self powered personal transport devices.
