If you’re charging £2,500 (just under P160,000) for your scooter, you better be sure people are getting their money’s worth. More so when you’re calling your product the “world’s first hyper scooter.”
Does the Dragonfly DF—a crowd-funded alternative mobility device on Indiegogo.com—have the qualities to back up its claim? Let’s have a look then.
Its platform is made of carbon fiber, and its four-wheel build means it has a more stable ride than its two-wheel counterparts. It comes packing two 550W electric motors at the front and rear, respectively. It can also propel you to wherever you need to go at up to 40kph.
Max range on flat terrain? A decent 80km. The thing also takes three hours to charge to 100%, and just two to go from 0-70%. And, of course, it’s waterproof.
We’ll leave you to be the judge of the numbers. There’s no denying, though, that the Dragonfly DF definitely looks the part of something ‘hyper.’ The appearance comes courtesy of relatively large all-terrain wheels, exposed shock absorbers, and a stealthy overall design with a black finish. The digital displays (which, by the way, appear very detailed and intuitive) and bright daytime running lights are a nice touch as well.
