When I hear the word off-road, a lot of things come to mind. I begin to imagine rough terrains, rocky hills, sloppy mountains, jungle tracks, and so on. All these rough terrains have something in common, they are off the road. You would agree with me that rough terrains could be a little harsh on your ride if it wasn’t designed for them.
My friend and I had been having a hard time going for our mountain climbing exercise in our car because the road wasn’t large enough for it, so we were subject to walking a very long distance to get to the mountain foot. We tried alternatives like bicycles but it was very exhausting. We continued like this till we discovered the Off-Road electric scooter.
