YUME D4+ has another sibling by the name of D5 that is the same model without the seat. Basically, they both have the same price point except that the Yume D5 doesn’t come with a seat priced at $1299.
While the D4+ at $1299 comes with a seat that is removable. So it’s basically up to you if you want the seat then you can opt for this model and the 2000 watts motor will not disappoint you when it comes to the speed and acceleration of this electric scooter.
The dual motors in any electric scooter play a key role in making sure that the electric scooter runs at a steady pace. The stated speed as per the manufacturer, Yumeway is 40 miles per hour.
Now depending on the weight of each person, the speed can differ. Some people weighing 255 lbs. may find the speed to be different than a person who weighs lesser than that.
The top speed also depends on the kind of terrain you are driving on and the dual motors of 1000 watts each make sure that you have a stable and reliable ride. The speed kicks in and makes sure your need for power and acceleration is met accordingly.
The Yumeway team did put in a powerful lithium-based battery that is 23.4 ah and 52 volts. It offers a range of 65 miles as mentioned by the manufacturer. However, do note that the exhaustion time of the battery also depends on the speed, the terrain, and the rider’s weight.
The best part about buying any Yumeway electric scooters is that when they put dual batteries in an electric scooter they also provide dual charges. And hence this electric scooter also comes with dual chargers and the charging time is 4 to 5 hours.
Considering that this electric scooter has dual motors and dual such a high-powered battery the charging time is a lot less. There are other models by the same manufacturers that take longer to charge some even take up to 12 hours. So in that case YUME D4+ is an absolute win.
YUME D4+ Tires
The YUME D4+ comes with 10 inches off-road pneumatic tires. This means that despite the fact that this electric scooter is essentially made for city rides, you can take it on an off-road expedition.
And as far as the YUME D4+ tires are concerned there is nothing to worry about as they are 10 inches and ride easily on any terrain. Any tire of that size can handle bumps, potholes, and other terrains.
While we are talking about the terrain, it is also worth noting that the YUME D4+ can easily handle all kinds of terrain as the grooves on the tires ensure that any dirt or sand can easily be tackled with these tires.
So don’t say no to any off-road excursions with this electric scooter.
