For those of you who might have visited here: http://www.x-tremescooters.com/electric_mopeds/xm-3000/xm3000.html
or here: http://www.voltsrider.net/vr/forum_posts.asp?TID=61 please don't be too alarmed.
Yes, I agree it's a shame that X-Treme can't keep their own specs straight. However, you can see more accurate specs at my site: http://www.revevllc.com/xm3000.php Bear in mind that X-Treme sell over 100,000 items per year and that their XM range includes both electric and gas mopeds but only reflects a small part of their business. That's why it makes sense to buy the scooter through someone specializing in just electric scooters.
Remember that the person who owns voltsrider.net sells a competing bike over at Nova Scooters. Nothing they report is inaccurate - however, some of it is exaggerated and/or presented to show X-Treme in the worst light possible. For example, the husband of the owner of Nova Scooters (usatracy) reported on this site (before they had their own dealership and thus a conflict of interest) that they have two XM-2000 which they received with no damage and that they ride legally in Virginia with no problems. There is no benefit to them to tell you this - but there is benefit of them telling you just the bad news. I believe there is benefit in you knowing the complete picture.
If you want to buy an electric motor scooter then I encourage you to do your homework and buy from a reputable source. I believe that Nova Scooters, LLC is a reputable source for electric motor scooters, however, so is X-Treme.
Of course, I believe the XM-3000 will represent the best value for money in the market. That's why I'm going to sell them. However, I don't intend to start selling them until I have my own XM-3000 in hand (a) that protects you from suffering from any further delays & (b) it allows me to have full confidence that the product lives up to the specs
I invite you to do your OWN comparison between the XM-3000 ($1,999) and the Nova Scooter products($3,499). You will find pros and cons on EITHER product. You will also find a big price differential (also in shipping costs - the XM-3000 has a $50 shipping cost, I believe Nova's bikes will cost around $400 to ship).
