EcoReco M5 E-Scooter
Our Score 8.2 out of 10
Our Verdict A popular choice for those who want to upgrade from their manual kick scooters and kick into high gear.

The EcoReco M5 is equipped with a 250 watt motor and double suspension to soften bumps and make your ride a smoother and faster one.

Notably, it comes with a kickstand that’s great for parking or charging.

While it stands out for it’s sleek form, sturdy structure and style factor, it hard to ignore the high price and heavy weight.
