The Bounce Infinity E1 is also offered with a battery, which can be removed from the scooter and charged by customers at their home or office or wherever convenient.
With its contemporary and ergonomic design, the scooter is slick, spunky, and smart. The Bounce Infinity E1 comes in five exciting colour options: Sporty Red, Sparkle Black, Pearl White, Desat Silver and Comet Grey. The smart scooter ensured a good balance of performance, efficiency, and reliability with the Bounce Infinity’s Brushless DC Motor. Bounce Infinity E1 houses smart and practical features like Power Mode, Reverse Mode, Cruise Control and Drag Mode. Its 2 KWh Battery [48V, IP67] is waterproof and super reliable and can power the scooter through it all, even if it’s raining.
