Quick Guide: How to Easily Start Your Swagger 5 Electric Scooter

Embark on your urban adventure with the Swagger 5 electric scooter, a marvel of modern transport that combines style with cutting-edge technology. Here's a simple guide to ensure you hit the ground rolling without a hitch.

Before you set off, safety comes first. Ensure that your Swagger 5 scooter is fully charged. A green light on the charger will indicate a full battery, which typically takes 3.5 hours. Now, let's proceed with the steps to start your electric scooter:

Step 1: Unfold and Secure
Begin by unfolding your Swagger 5 scooter. Ensure the stem is locked in place with the quick-release latch, providing stability and safety.

Step 2: Power On
Press and hold the power button located on the handlebar's central control panel until you see the display light up, indicating the scooter is ready to go.

Step 3: Kick-off
While standing on the scooter, kick off the ground three times to start the motor. Remember, the Swagger 5 requires a little push to activate the motor for safety reasons.

Step 4: Throttle and Go
After the motor is engaged, gently push the throttle on the right-hand side of the handlebar to increase speed. Use the handlebars to steer, and you’re on your way!

Step 5: Braking
To stop or slow down, use the electronic brake by pressing the left-hand lever or the rear disc brake by stepping on the rear fender. Always be prepared to brake well in advance of obstacles or turns.

For a seamless experience, regularly check tire pressure, brakes, and battery life. The Swagger 5 offers an easy-to-use app to help track your scooting metrics and settings.

Now that you know how to start and operate your Swagger 5 electric scooter, you're ready to zip through city streets with ease and efficiency. Enjoy the ride while respecting traffic regulations and always wearing protective gear.

Happy scooting!
