"We were introduced to Koppla while looking for a scooter to take with us while camping. It has been a partnership that has far surpassed our expectations. The koppla is an amazing commuter scooter we take it every where often you will find my wife and son cruising around together on it while we are traveling and filming. The convenience of electric should not be overlooked no real maintenance no clogged carburetors and no high fuel cost. Weather it's to travel back and forth to work or just to get out and explore new places the Koppla Gator has you covered"
Q: How did you know about Koppla scooter?
I learned about Koopla scooter from Scooty Kilmer YouTube channel.
Q: What's your first impression of the brand of Koppla?
Unique styling and design. Impressed with the ability to keep up with traffic. I would like to see a little less cheap plastic and more aluminum parts (fenders, foot plate and battery cover.)
Q: Was it hard to assemble the bike on your own? How long did it take to assemble?
It was fairly easy to assemble. It took me about an hour.
Q: How do you feel after taking it to a ride for the 1st time?
It was exciting! I knew right away that I made a good purchase.
Q: What’s your weight, and what’s your fastest speed on Koppla Gator? What’s the range on a single charge?
145 lbs. I've reached 48 mph only a couple times on a full charge. It averages at about 44-46 mph. The battery indicator can be deceiving while driving since it has three bars indicating battery capacity. I can probably safely get about 30-35 miles on a single charge, but I usually charge it after driving a total of 16-20 miles back and forth to work. I'm afraid to run too low and the battery die on the road. Sometimes it shows low battery while I'm driving, but then I park and it goes up one or two bars. A more accurate percentage would be better. I'll test it more when I get a spare battery.
Q: How long have you owned the Koppla scooter? What’s the experience after several months?
I have had it for about five months. I love it! I wish it went about 50 mph, but it keeps up with traffic on roads with 45 mph speed limit.
Q: Where are you based, what’s the procedures to register the Koppla scooter and do you need a driving license?
The paperwork (Certificate of Origin) comes with the scooter. It was easy to register as a moped in Virginia. Virginia requires a regular driver's license. No motorcycle license is necessary when registered as a moped. No state inspection is required for mopeds.
Q: Have you tried moped scooter before riding Koppla? What are the top 3 things you look for when buying a powerful adult scooter?
This is my first scooter/moped.
Top speed. Faster is always better! This is important so I can drive to work and keep up with traffic flow.Range. Battery range is very important so it doesn't die while driving.Handling/Braking.
** I would like the turn signals to have a sound so I don't forget to turn it off after I make a turn.
Q: What do you like the most about Koppla Gator? (speed, battery, suspension, brake, hill climb, tire, appearance, etc.)
Save on gas money! I'm happy with how cool it looks and that it is faster than other scooters on the road. I get a lot of looks from people. It's very cool!
Q: Where have you been with your Koppla? Any fun stories you'd like to share?
I drive it to work three days a week. 16 miles round trip.
Q: Has the Koppla scooter made any difference to your life?
Definitely! I save so much money on gas.
Q: Where do you usually ride? Can you share any nice cycling routes that you've been to?
I ride to work and visiting family. It would be more useful if it had a storage rack or compartment. I love the locking handle bars and security alarm features. I feel safe parking it in public and going to a movie.
