Unagi Scooter Review: Sleek, Stylish, with One Main Problem
A great scooter with an even greater price tag
After enjoying one of the most lucrative Kickstarter campaigns to date, the Unagi electric scooter is officially available to everyday users, and it's about time. This sleek, admittedly expensive e-scooter has the strong frame, long battery life, useful features, and stylish design you need to truly take micromobility to the next level.
- Beautiful, carbon fiber frame
- One-click folding for simple portability
- Intuitive, stylish handlebar-mounted dashboard
- Hefty price tag
- A bit on the heavy side
If you're tired of sharing e-scooters, you're not alone. While the convenience is undeniable, having to shell out a few bucks for every single ride isn't exactly a financially responsible plan for your personal transportation. Plus, with vandalism remaining a persistent problem and cities banning scooters in droves, purchasing your own electric scooter might be the way to go, and you can't get much better than Unagi.
Simply put, the Unagi electric scooter is one of the most popular, stylish, and positively-reviewed electric scooters on the market today. From handle bar to kickstand, this e-scooter boasts some of the highest quality parts — from the carbon fiber frame to the puncture-proof tires — and the most innovative features — from the built-in speed modes to the impressive battery.
We must admit though, all this quality comes at a pretty high price. The single motor edition will run you as much as $840, while the dual motor option tops out at $990. However, as you'll see, you absolutely get what you pay for when it comes to the Unagi electric scooter.
In this review, we'll walk you through the design, performance, interface, portability, and practicality of the Unagi electric scooter, so that you can decide for yourself whether it's the right transportation option for you.
