Good build quality
The Ninebot D28E looks great with its red metal frame framing the deck. There’s manufacturing quality, we’ve got a neat and solid design right. This scooter is also IPX5 certified to brave rain and resist splashes, but be careful not to fall into puddles.

They should allow the scooter to move over rougher surfaces without the vibrations becoming unbearable, thus achieving a smoother ride. To ensure safety, there is a dual regenerative braking system for added safety and stability. Ninebot does not forget about comfort and incorporates a fairly spacious and comfortable platform. At 15 pounds, it doesn’t make it the lightest in its category, but the D28E is easily portable.

Enough for daily trips

This is a small number compared to the 65 km of autonomy offered by the high-end scooter from Ninebot, but it is important to remember that this model is primarily designed for short trips.
