Evaluation: GEVM Tiger
(Please forgive the
protective cardboard tubes on the scooter)
***NOTE: The Tiger scooter is ONLY available in "tiger" orange.
***NOTE: The Tiger comes with a seat as standard equipment!
This scooter will seem familiar to Currie owners at first
glance. It's built
on what appears to be the ubiquitous Scoot-e platform. However, the
Tiger incorporates a number of alterations and improvements that set
First and foremost, the motor is NOT the familiar Lo-Kol by Kollmorgen.
Although not significantly stronger, the new motor is said to be far more
durable and less prone to the overheating. (a problem familiar to Scoot-
e owners) The motor is 24V and powered by a pair of 10A/hr batteries.
It is brushless, and employs the same style "on-board" PWM controller
as Currie products. Control is via a smooth acting thumb throttle.
Notably, the motor mounting plate is independently welded
to the chassis,
rather than being a part of the drive plate as in the Scoot-e. In addition,
there is no noisy chain adjusting block! Supposedly, the chain tension can
be adjusted by sliding the rear axle back and forth in its drop-outs. This,
however, would require the removal of the axle safety washers. I'm not
sure if the adjustment would hold, but it seems a reasonable probability.
Finally, power is delivered to the rear wheel through a freewheel roller
bearing clutch device on the motor shaft.
The seat/basket assembly is nicely made, and is secured with large,
easily removable allen head bolts. Slots in the seat mounts allow for
removal of the entire seat assembly simply by loosening the four bolts
attaching it to the deck. There's no need to remove the bolts! The
basket should be more firmly anchored to the seat bracket, however.
A few nice touches: Included with the scooter is a 1.5A charger, multi-
LED battery condition indicator, heavy duty road tires, 45 deg. angled
valve stems, Tektro brake levers, and a charger plug release lever
located under the port! I mention this, since nearly everybody complains
about the XLR jack release button being difficult to reach on Curries.
A few negatives: There is no vertical height adjustment available on
the steering tube to raise or lower the handle bar. (although it's set at
a reasonable height for the average rider) There is a disquieting noise
made by the motor and chain when the scooter is rolled backward.
This noise is caused by the strong "cogging" action of the motor as
the clutch is engaged. Obviously, this noise is not present when riding
or rolling the scooter forward.
The scooter comes fully assembled. Just blow up the tires,
All in all, a great little scooter.
