I have been reading this forum for awhile and appreciate all the help given here. I have a question regarding the range of the XM-3000 in ideal conditions. I ride on completely flat land (no hills what-so-ever) and usually go about 25mph in the scooter lane here and I weight 180lbs. Can the XM-3000 really go 50 miles at this speed as stated? I know you shouldn't use more then use more then 80% of the charge of a SLA so I figured in my pretty much non-stop travelling I could get a range of 40 miles going 25 mph. Is this accurate? Also if I went the same non-stop route at full speed any idea how far I could go. I really want the XM-3500, but unfortunately it is too big to fit in the elevator of my apartment building and since the battery can't be removed I would have no way to charge it. (The XM-3000 however does fit :) ) Besides the XM-3000 I am also considering the Zapino, besides cosmetics are there any differences between these two scooters?
Thanks in advance for the help!
