What reviewers didn't like

Nonadjustable handlebars. Has trouble getting up steeper hills.
Struggles on steep hills. No pneumatic tires.
Some components, like the brake lever, feel cheap. The brakes needed some adjustment, and the cable routing isn’t the best design. The brakes are also a little noisy.
Low visibility. Not for those with limited riding experience as this folding scooter has an app. We experienced some issues with the android app that comes installed on these folding scooters.
The price is a little too high since there are other models with similar features.
There is a red cable going on the outside of the scooter, I would have preferred them to go inside the frame or at least use two black cables. Have an issue with the cruise control, similar to early m365.
