The EMOVE Cruiser is designed by Voro Motors, a leading brand based in Los Angeles, California, with over 50,000 units on the road. Renowned for its reliability and innovation, Voro Motors continues to dominate the electric mobility market. The EMOVE Cruiser is one of the most identifiable scooters in the escooter world–a scooter for people that know scooters. 

With improved ergonomics and a range of factory accessories, including a standard thumb throttle and optional throne-style seat, the Cruiser S offers unparalleled customization options. In this review, I survey the practicality and versatility of the EMOVE Cruiser S in depth.

Who Is This Scooter For?

The EMOVE Cruiser S is a 1000W, single-motor scooter that just about anyone can ride. However, just because we recommend it for beginner riders (and riders of all other skill levels) doesn’t mean its performance is muted — on the contrary. The Cruiser S can hang with traffic for as long as you’d (realistically) want to.

The Cruiser S is a unique scooter for heavier riders who want long-range without paying through the nose for a more premium scooter. Its weight capacity, large deck, and quad spring shocks combine to form a smooth ride for everyone who steps on it and takes off.

EMOVE CRUISER S: Performance

Top Speed


The EMOVE Cruiser S clocked a max speed of 31.7 mph. This was 1.2 mph faster than the 2021 Cruiser, and came close to beating the fastest single-motor scooter we’ve tested, the Segway GT1, which has a top speed of 34.5 mph.


The EMOVE Cruiser S is a fantastic scooter for many reasons, and chief among them is how quickly this scooter accelerates to speed. I’m impressed that it now has a sinewave controller for a smoother and more efficient throttle. 


During testing, I got up to 15 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds, and it held the acceleration curve to reach 30 mph in 17 seconds.


The EMOVE Cruiser S covered 43.6 miles of range on our challenging Electric Scooter Guide range course and did so at a sustained average speed of 18.8 mph. 

Compared to other scooters, you would have to pay $2,500 more to come close to the range of the Cruiser S. The 1560Wh battery, packed with LG 18650 cells, has enough power to cover a week’s worth of commutes, which really allows you to enjoy your rides and hammer the throttle without any range anxiety.

The suspension and 10 inch tubeless tire pairing allows riders to comfortably leverage the Cruiser’s long range comfortably. Additionally, the new throne seat is a must-have accessory, especially given the range. But if you like riding while standing, the roomy surfboard-shaped deck is one of the best we’ve seen.

The EMOVE Cruiser S has a stopping distance of 10.1 ft from a speed of 15 mph. Anything shorter than 11 ft is regarded as world-class stopping power. We can credit the Crusier’s impressive braking to its dual Zoom semi-hydraulic disc brakes with 140 mm rotors, and the scooter’s improved regenerative braking.

Hill Climb

Usually, single-motor scooters don’t exceptionally shine on hills, especially compared with their dual-motor counterparts. However, the EMOVE Cruiser S’s sine wave controller is a game changer for this scooter.


With the improved controllers, the Cruiser S reached the top of our 200ft 10% hill in 11.7 seconds.

Ride Quality

The EMOVE  Cruiser S now has a 25 A sinewave controller responsible for a smoother, quieter, and more efficient operation. This, paired with the new intuitive zero-lag throttle, leads to an elevated ride feel. The small changes also carry over to braking, where the Cruiser retains the semi-hydraulic brakes but improves the regen braking for shorter stopping distances.

The Cruiser has the second longest deck of any scooter we’ve tested, giving the rider infinite possibilities when it comes to finding a proper foot stance for a long and comfortable ride.

I was riding it around my neighborhood yesterday, thinking; Cruiser S has Main Scooter Energy…you know, like main character energy… but for scooters.

EMOVE CRUISER S: Design, Build & Reliability

The EMOVE CRUISER S earned an impressive score of 8.6 on our Reliability Index, which factors in 11 key elements such as warranty length, tire type, UL certification, and battery manufacturer.

Renowned for its longevity, the LG battery on the EMOVE CRUISER S ensures an extended lifespan, offering reliability over time.

In terms of safety, the Cruiser S excels with features like semi-hydraulic brakes with short stopping distances, a full lighting package with rear turn signals, and a non-slip deck and handlebar grips for secure handling.

With an IPX6 rating, the EMOVE Cruiser S has high water resistance, making it suitable for riding in mild showers and moderate puddles, further solidifying its reputation as one of the most reliable scooters for rainy conditions.

While its design leans towards classic aesthetics, Voro maintains its timeless appeal while ensuring ease of repair: every connector on the scooter is Plug and Play, a significant advantage for maintenance, repairs, and replacement.

EMOVE CRUISER S: Is It Worth It? Our Verdict

The Cruiser’s appeal spans a pretty wide range of riders because of the brisk performance and the overall ride quality. It feels good whether you’re 150 lbs or 350 lbs. It’s at the top end of what we’d consider a beginner scooter, both in terms of price and performance, and it’s a good fit for all intermediate and expert riders too.

You may eventually want more scooter than this, but you’re unlikely to ever need more scooter than this. And if you take care of it, it might outlast your car.

While it may not boast the latest technology or offer the same level of portability as some models, the Cruiser S excels as a dependable mid-weight scooter, ideal for daily commuting and easy to integrate into your lifestyle. If you’re seeking a scooter that will stand the test of time, reliably getting you where you need to go, the EMOVE CRUISER S emerges as a durable and budget-friendly choice from a trusted seller.
