When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the center of
gravity of you and your scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability.

Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility
of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning),
uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction
(such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt
directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a
corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your scooter
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your scooter at higher
speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid
personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.
Your scooter is equipped with these powerful brake systems:
1. Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the
2. Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or
when power is removed from the system for any reason.
3. (Optional) Hand Brake: Gives you additional stopping power when you squeeze it. See V. Victory
