Boosted Rev Electric scooter

Boosted Rev Review Introduction

This has been one of the more anticipated electric scooters we have been waiting to ride. When we decided that we wanted to do a full on, in-depth Boosted Rev review, several things happened that we hadn’t seen happen before – there were no shortage of volunteers to help with the review, there was no concern over the budget needed to buy the scooter ( more on price later ) and there was a level of anxiety as to whether the Boosted Rev would live up to its expectations – and it was an expectation that everyone was willing it to achieve it.

So lofty heights for the Rev to hit, and the key question is – did it meet them? Read on….

Boosted Rev Price

Two things stood out for me when we first began researching the Boosted Rev – the look of the scooter and the price of the scooter. At £1599 it isn’t cheap, and firmly places itself in the premium category of consumer available electric scooters. It’s immediate peer group are the Inokim family of scooters ( pricewise ) and it looks down considerably on some of the other well known and popular models, ala Egrets, Segway Max and Unagi scooters.

What I will admit though, is even at £1599, I didn’t find the price off putting – in fact if anything, I wanted to believe that the price was yet another indicator that this was a scooter to define what a premium scooter should be. It LOOKS like it could and should be £1599. 

Interestingly, Boosted have obviously applied some gentle pressure to the few retailer that they allow to stock the scooter, to retain the price, thus maintaining its air of exclusivity. In the UK, Boosted will only supply retailers who have a High Street presence, and even then, they are fairly picky who they let showcase this beautiful beast.
