Like most things, there is a very broad range of quality when it comes to electric scooters and like most things, quality isn't always directly linked to price.
When development started on the Ohm we had a very specific goal of building a fully featured machine that could be brought o the market at a very good price. Everything I've ever done has tried to focus on bringing the most value possible.
Though you will find some scooters that are faster or have longer range, they are almost all heavier and more expensive. Some of our competitors scooters are multiple times more expensive. We found that almost no people will ever even attempt to ride their scooters 30-40 miles in a day so we focused on building a scooter with a range for realistic use while also bringing the price down.
We firmly believe there is no better scooter at our price point and the Ohm is built to compete with many scooters much more expensive.
