Electric Scooters can be quite heavy due to the fact they are packed with big batteries, 2 wheels and their frame being made out of strong materials but there are lightweight scooters out there and today we are here to let you know all about them. It must be noted that scooters that are more lightweight will most likely be less powerful due to the scooter not holding such a big battery. The bigger the battery in the scooter, the more powerful, which then leads to a heavier scooter. So, if you are looking for a lightweight scooter that is best for smaller, leisurely journeys and mid speeds then keep reading!
