Today we’re reviewing the Eunorau Jumbo electric scooter and this monster of a machine definitely lives up to its namesake with two full-size bike tires. The Jumbo has a starting price of $1,699 USD and comes with an impressive 2-year comprehensive warranty and even a 14-day return period. We’ve reviewed quite a few ebikes from Eunorau but this is the first escooter we’ve seen from them, and needless to say, we’re excited to dive into the specs!
Starting in the back of the Jumbo we’ve got a powerful 1,000 watt hub motor paired with a half-grip twist throttle that can bring the scooter up to a top speed of 28 mph once it’s unlocked (Out of the box it comes limited to 20 mph).The power here feels good with a smooth roll-on of torque as the speed increases. It was a smart call for Eunorau to make the rear tire 20 inches, which is 6 inches smaller than the 26 inch front tire. Having that smaller diameter tire gives the hub motor a mechanical advantage, and since you can’t add power to this machine through pedaling, every extra bit of torque is appreciated. Now, you probably noticed the rear wheel is radially spoked, compared to the traditional 3-cross spoking like we see in the front tire. Radial spokes can wiggle loose over time, so that’s just something to check up on every once in a while.
Riding the Jumbo at full speed feels surprisingly stable for a standup scooter, thanks in large part to the full-size 26 inch front tire. Most escooters have pretty small tires, around 6 to 8 inches, and while that does give them a great mechanical advantage, it means every little bump and crack is going to feel especially pronounced. With the Jumbo, that’s just not an issue. The high attack angle of that front tire glides over pretty much everything, just like a normal electric bike would. This is the greatest strength of the Jumbo.
The battery on the Jumbo is a 48 volt, 15.6 amp hour system with a max estimated range of 25 miles. The battery is housed inside the deck, keeping the center of weight very low and further adding to that feeling of stability that comes with the Jumbo. However, while the battery can be removed, it’s not exactly hot swappable like most ebikes. The charging port is on the left side of the battery and has a rubber grommet to cover the port when it’s not in use.
The Jumbo has a curb weight of nearly 80 pounds, with a 240 pound carry capacity. The frame feels sturdy and has almost zero flex, likely thanks to the twin tube design. It come stock with front and rear fenders and a rear rack, which adds some nice versatility to this ride.
The headlight is exceptionally bright and offers great visibility even on the darkest nights. There’s also a tail light on the Jumbo, which helps increase rear visibility as well. Wire management here is also great, even though most of the wires are externally routed. There seems to be plenty of room in the down tubes for the wires, and we’d love to see these tucked inside in a future model.
To bring the Jumbo to a stop we’ve got Tektro mechanical disc brakes with 180 mm rotors in the front and rear. This setup offers ample stopping power, and even comes with motor inhibitors, which instantly cut power to the motor whenever the brake levers are depressed.
One of my absolute favorite things about the Jumbo is the horn, which is by far the loudest horn we’ve tested to date, and can be easily accessed without having to adjust your grip too much. On the right side of the handlebars there’s also a separate button to toggle the lights, and of course the half-grip twist throttle.
The display is beautifully laid out and easily visible in direct sunlight, but it’s worth noting that polarized sunglasses make it almost impossible to read without titling your head. The button pad on the left is minimal and slim, and is also easy to access without shifting your grip too much.
The Jumbo is an amazing cross-breed of an ebike and an escooter, and does an incredible job capturing the best aspects of both vehicles. It has the stability of an ebike and the ease of use of an escooter; it’s got wide handlebars and disc brakes just like an ebike, but you can comfortably stand up just like an escooter. It really is the best of both worlds here.
