Legislation across countries is different and we advise you to check the legal position to ensure you comply. We also advise all our riders to wear helmets at all times.
UK legislation – e-scooters are currently not legal on roads and pavements and only legal on private grounds with permission. There may be fines if you do not abide with these laws. However Grant Shapps, Transport Minister for the UK, announced in May 2020 in response to the Coronavirus pandemic that electric scooter trials will be fast tracked with the need to find different transport solutions. eGo Urban is staying on top of these exciting legislative changes and we will keep you updated in real time as these amend.
In Italy, e-scooters are already legalised, as in many European countries. The infrastructure and government subsidies allows people living in centres of more than 50,000 not only to have a subsidy of up to 60% on their purchase of their new e-scooter but supports the legal usage of such vehicles as a proper mode of transport within the city – providing clear and legal lanes for such electric scooters.

Air filled tyres are lighter and the lowered rolling resistance improves rider comfort compared to solid tyres. Whilst solid tyres have less punctures, the air filled tyres can have puncture fluid inserted into them giving the benefit of a smoother ride and comfort on less punctures. Tyres should be replaced when the tread pattern is worn to ensure a good grip.
Rider weight can vary according to each e-scooter so we recommend you check your product. The maximum rider weight for the eGo-X7 is up to 100kg.
This is provided in both Italian and English, dependent on your country of purchase
It is advisable not to use the e-scooter in heavy rain conditions and the battery waterproof levels will vary according to manufacturer levels. The eGo-X7 model has undergone battery waterproof testing and has a waterproof certificate level of IP54, unlike many other models, which gives you comfort when needing to ride in the rain. Please note any fault caused due to misuse of the scooter including water ingress or external damage is not covered by this policy. Please ensure you read the manual in detail before using the electric scooter to avoid voiding your warranty.
We offer full customer support. Any problems with your e-scooter please contact our customer services team. The battery has a 6-month warranty and the e-scooter 12-month warranty. Please see our guidance terms on after sales policy on the website for full details.
If your e-scooter arrives damaged or develops a manufacturing fault during normal use (as outlined in the manufacturer’s manual) within 14 days of you receiving it you are entitled to a repair, replacement or refund. To initiate this process please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Following an initial phone based assessment we will discuss the best option with you.
If your scooter develops a fault through normal use (As outlined in the manufacturer’s manual) after the initial 14-days period you may still be entitled to have your scooter repaired at no cost to yourself. We will assess the fault via phone and email to confirm that the scooter we supplied was defective before agreeing to provide a free repair. Please email us on email@example.com and we will support you through the next steps, which may include facilitating a repair or replacement via the manufacturer, under their warranty terms as provided.
