DESCRIPTION
The Fusion Torque is the original and still the best scooter in this class available in the UK.

The overall construction is extremely sturdy and functional with very simple speed, acceleration and braking controls making the Torque easy to learn to ride in minutes. The light, folding aluminium construction makes it extremely easy to carry and store.

MAIN FEATURES:
+ User-friendly display, to let you know how fast you are going and how much battery you have left.

+ Super bright LED light at the front, and a rear light which flashes when braking.

+ Honeycomb wheels – brand new for 2020 make the ride extremely smooth and eliminate the tiresome punctures which are a frequent problem with other models out there.

+ All Fusion Board electric scooters are UK stock and come with a 3 year UK warranty (unlike many imports that have to be returned to Europe or China).

+ The Torque scooter features a super lightweight and durable aluminium frame, which can be adjusted to fit the user’s height.

+ High quality, Lithium battery, which can be quickly recharged in 2 – 3 hours and travel up to 25km from one charge.

+ The most user-friendly acceleration and brake yet – a simple thumb press for acceleration and brake handle on the alternate side.

+ Portable and folding – the scooter can be folded quickly and easily for storing or transportation.

+ Honeycomb tyres provide a super smooth ride and guarantee zero punctures.

+ Vented disc brakes for excellent stopping power every time.

+ Electronic display shows your speed while riding and battery level.

+ Resistance level of IP54 – protected from limited dust ingress and water splashes.

+ Fusion UK (Plus Out) are a UK-based company with a high standard of quality control and a UK office, warehouse and workshop.

+ Manufactured by Windgoo, one of the biggest and best electric scooter factories in the world.

+ A genuine CE safety certificate is available for this scooter.

Marketers gonna torque this scooter up
So good or bad?

Bad deal. Too much money for what you get, an item that you are not allowed to use in the manner advertised. This retailer does display the disclaimer, "Please note that this scooter is not to be used on public highways, only on private property with the owner’s consent." but the OP has not copied that line from the advert. You need to add £300 to the advertised price to allow for contingencies.
The amount of people I see using something similar on roads with no lights you just know their gonna get ironed out soon...

That's the one death in Britain, where she shouldn't have been riding at all. You will find all kinds of reports on the net of high accident rates and fatalities in countries where these are legal to ride.

If you actually factor the law into your purchasing decision of this item you're a bit of a silly sausage. In fact, the only people who care about the legal status of these scooters, are people who have absolutely zero intention of ever using one anyway (chronic couch potato.Jeremy Clarkson wannabes)... So just don't listen to 'em... in reality; police usually use sensible discretion when they see such things, as well as having way more important things to do, life's too short and fuel is too expensive, so treat yourself and enjoy spiting the sad, bitter, resentful Victor 'NIMBY' Meldrews of this world...

From context (the post he was responding to), I thought it was about the the danger of injury or death. Comparing escooters to other transport is often inappropriate. In the main, they are used instead of walking or public transport. Some people claim to commute long distances, but realistically it isn't for most. They are no use for the school run or weekly supermarket shopping, and bicycles, including ebikes, are better for any journey you can't walk. On a rainy day, the bus is preferable and much safer, if there is one. I have an ebike, but even that is really an emergency backup where I live (no buses and six miles from anything), for when the car is out of action.

The police may use sensible discretion to users when all is going well.

They will not be able to use any discretion if you cause an accident while using them and as third party insurance isn't available for users, you would open yourself up to unlimited losses.

I don't understand why the scofflaws and their apologists object so vehemently to the legal position regarding escooters being aired. People who are prepared to break the law will do it, no question, but they need to know about the law before they spend hundreds of pounds. However much you whistle in the dark about police inaction, some users have been fined, got points on their licence, and had the scooter confiscated. It is an easy bust if the cops want to have you. They don't need to prove a thing. Maybe they just didn't like your attitude, they can still cite you for driving a motor vehicle without insurance, and you have no defence.

Id say escooters are much better then ebikes/bikes due to there size as u cant take an ebike on a bus or in the car etc..they are perfect for
responsible children to be used for school and useful for short runs to the shops to pick up some milk... I use mine all the time in public parks and towns without any issues.

So the lorry is the killer in this situation isn't it, not the scooter.

Not worth the risk. If you want alternative, an ebike is more practical and no sword of Damocles hanging over you.

I'd like to know this as well, the question seems to get lost in yet another legality debate.

too late, bought an M365 a year ago love it. I just can't wait until they are made legal so we can stop having that discussion on every single scooter thread. Nothing quite attracts the HUKD legal advisors as much as scooters do (really, seen two threads today discussing pirating TV and nobody says a word .. scooter thread OMG ILLEGAL ALL GOING TO GET ARRESTED...)
