If you can handle the 36-pound weight and don't need to go far, the Fuzion V-1000 could be the durable commute companion you've been looking for.
Cars get stuck in traffic. Buses and trains don't get you all the way to your destination. Walking is slow, and bikes take up too much room. If you need to get from A to B in a hurry, a folding electric scooter can kick some serious ass.
I've been testing out folding electric scooters for nearly a year, and the Fuzion V-1000, a customized I-MAX model, is a pretty decent pick. It's for strong people -- due to its hefty weight -- who need to commute over bumpy roads and don't mind plugging in nightly. This $1,100 (roughly £900 or AU$1,450) scooter isn't the fastest or lightest ride, but it's built like a tank, with cushy handlebars and one of the best suspension systems I've tried yet. You can buy it direct from Fuzion here.
Why might you buy or avoid the Fuzion V-1000? Let's go in-depth.
The Fuzion V-1000 definitely isn't as good as I could ask for, but it gets the job done. It's a comfortable, durable ride that feels like it'll last for years to come. If you have a short commute, can handle the 36-pound weight and don't plan to ride in the rain (it's tough to stop), it's not a bad pick.
But if you stay tuned to CNET.com, I'll be reviewing some other folding electric scooters you might like even better.
