     Vego SX 600

           

I recently had the opportunity to evaluate the new (pre-production)
Vego SX 600 scooter. Although a snowfall of nearly 27" prevented
outdoor testing,  I was able to run some basic dyno performance
tests and have a look at this new entry into the mid priced arena.

The SX 600 is similar in looks to the more familiar Currie F-18 and
HCF 707 but with a few noticeable differences.  Among those, the
dual drum brakes, 22A/hr24 volt battery system with quick change
features, 4 way adjustable handlebar, suspension seat post, and
very nice newly designed Kenda tires.

My test unit came with an on/off key which also opened the battery
compartment access panel. Inside were a pair of 11A/hr 24 volt
batteries, a somewhat unusual configuration to say the least. A
fan cooled 2A charger was also supplied. Testing was done using
this charger. Two dyno runs were completed and averaged to
provide the final results, and overnight charging preceded each test.

Average speed during the runs was 14.1 MPH with a maximum of
15.2 MPH occurring at the 5 minute point into each test. (typical) This
seems to place the Vego SX 600 in the early Flyer/Phat Flyer rank
in the speed category. Although I wasn't able to ride the scooter on
my standard test hill, I have little doubt that the beefy motor and low
gearing will perform well under those conditions.

Considering the rather large battery capacity, (22A/hr) I was a bit
surprised at the the 53 minute run time of this scooter. However,
it managed a respectable 12.5 miles average distance during the
tests.

Overall, this is a very substantial machine. The broad deck, large
comfortable seat, and well positioned handlebars give it the feel
of a larger scooter. This is one you should test ride if you're in the
market for an $800 electric. For a comparison with other stock
scooters tested using identical methods, click on the following
