The L5+ is EcoReco's top-of-the-line electric scooter. It maintains the exquisite design characteristics of its predecessors with upgrades for maximum performance, enhanced comfort, and rougher road conditions. The boosted EcoReco L5+ features;
- 22 mph top end speed.
- More powerful 48v, 700w peak rear hub motor. You'll experience lighting fast acceleration and conquer 20-30% inclines.
- Aggressive dual shock rear suspension offers unmatched comfort and stability.
- A longer, wider foot deck.
- 8" polyurethane filled front wheel, and a flat-free solid rear wheel.
- Load capacity of up to 290 lbs.
Safety is another key benefit built into the design of the EcoReco L5+. A safe-start mechanism prevents false starts. To get going, give the scooter a push, then pull the throttle while it’s in motion. A three-stage braking system assures a smooth, fast stop. Triggering the brake cuts power from the motor, then applies the brake to the rear wheel. An omni-directional tail light keeps you safe at night.
EcoReco offers several innovative features you won't find on most electric scooters. A regenerative braking system refuels the battery when you brake. This advanced component helps maximize range. The top speed is configurable. Set it to 20, 12 or 7 mph depending on your riding style. Limiting speed extends range to up to 20 miles per charge. An open section built into the frame lets you lock it when you leave it.
Additional features include; An all-purpose gadget mount on the handlebars. Attach your phone, camera, Go-Pro, or any other compatible accessory. An LED back-lit dashboard offers riding stats on the go. It charges fast taking only 2 hours to recharge to 60% capacity. The EcoReco L5+ is easy to carry. Just pick it up by the stem when folded. When you get where you're going it fits easily in the trunk, gym locker, under your seat or pretty much anywhere.
For your convenience, the EcoReco L5+ is delivered fully assembled and pre-charged to 50% capacity so you can ride it straight out of the box.

The ecoreco L5 is what I got, and it's pretty good so far. I clock in at 250 pounds, so wanted this one for the shocks and bigger size. I tried a Bird and it was a really rough ride, so no thanks. This ones got great power, is really fast and worth the extra bucks. Two thumbs up, I'm impressed.
Frank was very accommodating in the purchase process. I just loved the signiture required UPS shipping. Opened the box, got familiar then took off to run my errands. Love the power and speed. Very easy to use.
Didn't buy it here but thought I'd write a review for anyone looking to drop $1k on this scooter. I've had it a little over a year and a half now, used pretty heavily with just under 2000 miles on it. So far it's performed well, and has made me REALLY lazy about taking the bike. It fits under the seat of the public buses, can be wheeled around in some stores, and it generally really convenient. Overall it's worth the cost. At my 140lbs body weight it'll go about 25mph (where the speedometer maxes out), and the range seems to be right at 20 miles if you don't do anything to try and extend it, like riding slower. On rough pavement the shocks are a must, and it still isn't as smooth as a bike, but not having to fix flats all the time more than makes up for it. It's had something like 150 charge cycles and I haven't noticed any change in performance. Charging does take a while, and I charge it outside considering the stories I've heard of scooters catching on fire. Bugs: #1 lesson with this thing is that THREAD LOCK IS YOUR FRIEND. Don't buy this scooter without buying a tube of LocTite at the same time. The blue kind works fine. They do apply thread lock at the factory but were skimpy with it on mine, and over the first few months a few different bolts came loose. That included the nut on the front axle, which I thankfully noticed in time. Go through and re-thread-lock the nuts and re-check all of them periodically. Second is that it isn't *really* waterproof, but that can be improved by silicone sealing the cable holes in the battery compartment. I've ridden in rain and through puddles with no problem. Note it has VERY little traction on wet pavement though. The lack of nonskid on the deck surprisingly isn't really a problem. It doesn't come with a front light and there are no good places to mount one - you'll have to get creative. It also doesn't have a mirror, but you actually can put a Mirracle mirror in the end of the handlebar if you poke through the rubber endcap. There was a lot of friction in the rear wheel for the first ~6 mo I rode it, and it basically didn't coast at all, until it did. Not sure what caused that and it wasn't the brake, and there didn't seem to be a decrease in speed or range. The drum brake is kind of garbage and it can't lock the rear wheel, even after adjustment and even with the help of the magnetic braking. Plan all your moves ahead of time because the stopping distance sucks. Finally, the current thing that's kind of irking me: the replacement parts are overpriced. $10 for a plastic sleeve. $20 for two bolts. The front wheel seems to last forever but the back one is now bald. I called them and they said you can't buy the tire by itself without the motor anymore; it's a $120 "all-in-one" package in order to "increase reliability" because it has "fewer moving parts". Uh huh.
