This EagleCraft Verano scooter review offers one fan's experience with this motor scooter... I just bought an EagleCraft Verano scooter after seeing lots of people riding them around town.
I asked a few people what they thought about theirs before I purchased mine and they said that they were awesome. I had been tentative about buying a scooter because there are many bad stories you hear about scooters not being able to get registered, or having lots of mechanical issues and then not being able to get parts.
But, these people all assured me that buying an EagleCraft scooter had been a great experience for them and that the manufacturer and the dealer supported their products extremely well. Two people told me they had very minor issues, but the dealer fixed them the same day free of charge because they come with a one year warranty on parts & labor.
It also provided me with confidence seeing these people have 5,000+ miles on the scooters because it showed me that they had been riding them for a while without any problems like I had heard stories about online, and it also added confidence when I started to see more EagleCrafts in my town than any other brand.
I have had my EagleCraft Verano scooter for about 2 weeks now and it has been great. I was able to select from the largest selection of color options available in town and the entire purchasing experience was great.
I also thought the ride on the Verano scooter was better than all the other scooters that I tried at the Honda dealership and a couple other new scooter companies. In addition, in my town many people drive over the speed limit, and the EagleCrafts were all much faster and smoother acceleration than the other brands in the 125cc and 150cc categories.
There has been one negative that I have heard from other people about EagleCraft and that is the lack of distribution across the US. I have spoken to many people trying to buy EagleCrafts, but they do not have dealerships in their area yet and EagleCraft does not drop-ship, nor do they allow their dealers to.
Thus, a lot of people cannot purchase a scooter from them and EagleCraft is very slow to grow across the US because they supposedly want to ensure all their customers are satisfied and all their dealers are satisfied.
I think this is good, but in my opinion, with such high demand, they need to put more effort into growth too because this is also customer satisfaction. A customer is unsatisfied in my opinion if they cannot get access to the product or if they are forced to travel a few hundred miles to get it.
A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.
Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.
One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.
