This bike has better acceleration, braking and handling than original. 60 amp/Hr conversion has sufficient range and the weight reduction improves the dynamics of this scooter.
This conversion was easier as the instrumentation is standard. I just installed the new firmware Laird 2013 for Li-Ion.
I removed the battery cooling fans and housing.
