Electric Scooter Brisbane
So you’d like to ride an electric scooter in Brisbane?
We love our scooters! iScoot has an excellent range to choose from, and we can help you choose the best scooter to match your needs. Whether you’re looking to improve your daily commuting times or experience, wanting the most powerful scooter on the market, or would like to enjoy more of this beautiful city – there’s a scooter for you.
Before you start adding scooter products to your shopping cart, there’s some things you should know first. We’ve prepared a summary for you to start with, but it’s important to make yourself aware of all the issues.
Can you ride electric scooters in Brisbane?
YES! Brisbane’s mild climate makes scooting a blast year-round – while the local regulations are some of the most liberal in Australia when it comes to allowing scooters in Brisbane and surrounds. The Gold Coast, and the Sunshine Coast have beautiful beaches which make for excellent scooter trips, so whether you live in the local community, or have travelled from interstate on holiday, an e scooter could be a great way to take a closer look at the Sunshine State.
Please make sure you read the relevant legal restrictions, as an e scooter is a little different to other transport such as bikes.
As with most scooters, you’ll need to take care in wet weather, particularly the electrical storms that Brisbane is known for. If you’re planning to ride in Brisbane’s hilly area, make sure you get a scooter that’s best to zoom up steep inclines. If you’re planning on riding around local beaches then sand and salt prevention is something to discuss with our people.
