Starting with the most critical aspect of any electric scooter, top speed. Gxl v2 commuter scooter is not a one with the high-speed feature. It can enjoy a ride of 21.7 Mph maximum. It is a manufacturer’s claimed top speed, and I didn’t experience its speed at 21 Mph.
I used it for my regular commute to the university. Weighing around 80 kg, I was able to touch 17 Mph only. It is not a scooter for you if you want to be the quickest. Because this speed is enough in this price range, it is preferred for the people starting it.
People at the beginning like to have a smooth and gentle ride. That is why this Gotrax scooter is restricted to a limited speed. It will give you a pure gentle riding experience with its smooth working.
Gotrax Gxl V2 Motor Experience
The cheap electric scooter has a mindset that restricts them to 250W only. They don’t have a motor of more than 250w in them. The same is the case with the Gotrax gxl v2 motor.
A 250w motor is enough for a moderately weighed person to enjoy the smooth ride. Gotrax v2 consists of a 250w brushless motor. A Brushless motor is known for its high torque to weight ratio. It is the reason behind the 220 lbs Gotrax Scooter weight limit.
A brushless motor is durable as compared to a DC motor. It is specially made to work for a longer time. I weigh around 80 kg, and this electric scooter can carry me at a handsome speed if I need it. A motor is masterly installed in this Gotrax scooter.
Gotrax Gxl V2 Speed Hack on Hills
One more feature that makes this electric scooter my first choice is its inclining ability. It can easily ride up the hill, not easily but handsomely. As I told you, my father got transferred to a hilly area. In this area, commutes are all about going up and coming down.
So, you need a powerful electric scooter with the ability to climb up the hill. I was nervous going up first time on my Gotrax scooter. I was impressed by its incline power.
It takes some time to climb up the hill. I noticed that the Gotrax v2 commuter scooter could manage the speed of 11 mph during a climb. Now that is a handsome power generated by Gotrax gxl v2 motor to take up around 80 kg. Its features will come together to help you ride up the hill.
Gotrax Gxl V2 Brake Adjustment
Gotrax gxl v2 brake adjustment is just the best in this package. I can never imagine a high-quality dual braking system on a meager budget. It is scarce to find dual brakes in cheap electric scooters. The Gotrax scooter comes with a front and rear braking system.
I have witnessed the master class of its braking system coming down the hill. One day, I was late for my university and speeding down the hill. A sharp turn appeared. I didn’t slow down and saw a truck coming from the opposite side at the turning point.
I applied both the brakes, and they just froze there. After the brakes, it took just 5 meters to stop. A lever for the brake is provided at the handle. The rear brake is also attached with a lever. Its brake technology is just wow.
Most Dependable Ranged Scooter
Electric scooters on a short budget don’t have the best range. Gotrax has managed to prove to us the best range ever in the electric scooter. Gotrax v2 commuter scooter comes with a brushless 250w motor. Its motor is specially designed to maintain a healthy range.
It can work for more than 17 km on a single charge. 17 Km is a manufacture-claimed range. I have witnessed that it can work for 16 km maximum. 16 Km with a weight of 80 kg in a single charge, especially in a hillside area, is the best range.
It has a 36v installed in it. A 36v battery can easily create a current of 5.2 Ah for the brushless 250W motor. That makes Gotrax gxl v2 battery life the best in the market. The excellent performance of this battery can provide a range of 17 km on a single charge. Also, it will take only 4 hours to be recharged again.
Gotrax Gxl V2 Tires
Gotrax gxl V2 tires are specially designed to work as shock absorber tires. It comes with a wheel size of 8.5 inches. 8.5 inches air-filled tires will not let you feel any shock during the ride. Tires are rubber tires with tubes inside. This helps these pneumatic tires to be softer when required.
Its air-filled tire is of perfect size to work fine. It can carry you around with its healthy weight limit. The Gotrax scooter does not have suspension installed in it. We can guess the reason is its meager budget. Its tires are given the responsibility to give fewer jerks during a ride.
I have not felt any shocks during my ride in my area. Roads in my area are entirely paved with high-quality material. No suspension can be an issue on low quality and rough roads. Otherwise, the Gotrax scooter weight limit is too good with its Air-filled tires.
When you stand at the electric scooter, its cockpit is the feature you see the most. Gotrax v2 has the most generous cockpit on the market. Its high-class cockpit gives you cool vibes. It gives you the confidence to ride this scooter with style.
A digital speedometer of a handsome size is installed at the handle. The speedometer will tell you the speed, battery, and more in digital numbers. LED comes with blue digital digits on it. It helps to attract the people as well. Also, it comes with a decent front LED light.
Light is not powerful enough to make way for you in the nights. Still, it is good enough to be seen from the opposite side. No rear light is installed in this electric scooter.

Perfect folding makes it Portable
Cheap electric scooters in the commercial market usually claim to be portable. They cannot stand by their claim due to the poor engineering behind their frame. This Gotrax Scooter is made of an aluminum alloy frame.
Aluminum alloy is blended through a special process to be used as a foldable scooter. Gxl v2 commuter scooter is not just good enough to be folded but also portable. A portable electric scooter should be easy to carry.
This scooter comes with single-step folding. Its folded size is 99 x 43 x 36 cm. This size folded electric scooter is very easy to carry. Although its top handle is not foldable and increases its size a bit, it is very to put it at the back of your car.
