So, let's buckle up and embark on this exciting journey of comparing the Kugoo M4 Pro and the Kugoo M4, unveiling the hidden gems that make each scooter a force to be reckoned with.
Specifications and Features
Motor and SpeedThanks to their respective 500-watt motors, both the Kugoo M4 Pro and the Kugoo M4 are able to reach an impressive top speed of 45 km/h. Electric scooter riders can expect swift acceleration when they are out and about - making them an ideal choice for commuting and exploring.
Battery Capacity and RangeKugoo M4 Pro
With its 18 Ah battery, the Kugoo M4 Pro will be able to achieve an impressive range of 35-40km on a single charge. Perfect for those who regularly take their scooters on long commutes or weekend adventures.
Depending on whether you choose the 10 Ah or 12 Ah version, you can expect to achieve a range of 25-30km on your Kugoo M4. While not quite at the range offered by the Kugoo M4 Pro, you won't be left wanting when it comes making the most of your electric scooter.
Tyre and Suspension
Both the Kugoo M4 Pro and the Kugoo M4 come equipped with 10x3 inch tyres, ensuring a smooth and stable ride over various surfaces. Additionally, they feature front wheel suspension, enhancing overall comfort by absorbing shocks and vibrations encountered during your ride.
It's worth noting that the Kugoo M4 Pro stands out with its off-road tyre, designed to tackle rougher terrains and provide improved traction on uneven surfaces. This feature adds versatility to the scooter, allowing riders to explore off-the-beaten-path destinations with confidence.
Deck Pad and Folding Mechanism
The grey rubber deck pad on the Kugoo M4 delivers durability and ease of maintenance. Since this kind of deck pad is less likely to be marked, it will maintain its stylish appearance even after heavy use. On the other hand, the Kugoo M4 Pro has a grip tape deck - ideal for grip while riding - but more likely to get scuffs and marks relatively quickly.
Both have a similar folding mechanism, which makes them easy to transport and store. You may easily fold your scooter by removing the folding pin and depressing the lever.
To help you choose between the Kugoo M4 Pro Kugoo M4, we'll examine how these features and specifications perform in actual riding situations as we move deeper into this comparison.
Riding Experience ComparisonTo truly understand the differences between the Kugoo M4 Pro and the Kugoo M4, we embarked on a test ride, evaluating their speed, stability, and overall performance. Here's a firsthand account of the experience:
During the test ride, we pushed both scooters to their limits, exploring their capabilities and responsiveness. Starting with the downhill stretch, we accelerated to reach top speeds and observed how each scooter handled the momentum.
Measured over a 200-metre distance, we managed to reach a high speed of 38km/h and noticed first-hand how well the scooter fared when it came to dependable performance and comfort.
Kugoo M4 Pro
The Kugoo M4 Pro achieved similarly excellent results, reaching a speed of 39 km/h downhill and 33 km/h when going uphill. However, we couldn't help but notice that the ride was a bit more wobbly compared to the M4 due to the off-road tyre on the Kugoo M4 Pro. That is the trade off for improved traction and adaptability.
Thanks to their strong motors and high speeds, both scooters provided an exciting ride. The Kugoo M4 is a dependable option for riders looking for a comfortable ride without compromising speed thanks to its stability and control. On the other hand, the M4 Pro's off-road tyre provided added traction and the ability to conquer rougher terrains, albeit with a slightly more wobbly feel.
As with many things, it will come down to personal preference. Whether you want to prioritise stability of the M4 or the versatility of the M4 Pro, we advise customers to consider what terrains they intend to ride on and how each scooter would complement their riding experience.
In the next section, we'll weigh the factors that set these two models apart and help you make an informed decision on which scooter to choose based on your priorities.
Choosing Between the Kugoo M4 and M4 ProWith the Kugoo M4 and the Kugoo M4 Pro offering similar top speeds and motor specifications, you might wonder what factors set them apart and how to decide between the two. Let's explore the key considerations when choosing your ideal electric scooter:
Range and Battery CapacityThe most significant factor when considering which electric scooter is right for you, will be its range. Equipped with an 18 Ah battery, the Kugoo M4 Pro can reach ranges between 35-40m on a single charge. For those facing longer commutes, the M4 Pro delivers the extended range capabilities that you will need. Whereas the Kugoo M4, with its 10 Ah or 12 Ah version, will provide you with a range of around 25-30km. Perfect for shorter ride and city-based journeys.
Terrain and Tyre TypeConsider the type of terrain you plan to ride on. The Kugoo M4 Pro's off-road tyre provides enhanced traction and is designed to handle rougher terrains, making it a preferable option for riders who enjoy exploring unpaved paths or venturing off the beaten track. If your rides primarily take place on smooth urban surfaces, the Kugoo M4's standard tyre might suffice, offering a comfortable and reliable experience.
Personal Preferences and Budget
So, now its decision time. Both the Kugoo M4 and the Kugoo M4 Pro provide great value and enjoyable riding experiences. For those prioritising longer ranges and off-road capabilities, the M4 Pro's higher battery capacity and off-road tyres might be a sound investment. Alternatively, if you expect to use your scooter for shorter trips on urban surfaces, the Kugoo M4 can offer a cost-effective and reliable option.
Ultimately, the choice between the Kugoo M4 and the Kugoo M4 Pro depends on your specific needs and preferences. Evaluate the factors discussed above and weigh them against your riding requirements and budget to make an informed decision.
