Voted #1 single-motor electric scooter of 2020 by Electric Scooter Guide. Apollo Explore combines speed, range, and comfort at an unbeatable price.
The Apollo Explore boasts of a powerful 1000W motor that can crush hills of up to 20 degrees. And its terrain-agnostic design makes it near effortless to handle flat or bumpy roads and even the trails.
**The Apollo Explore 2021 model features new upgrades including new fenders, a custom-designed kickstand, improved lighting, and a seamless deck design like its brother's, the Apollo Ghost.**
Electric Kicks are proud to be exclusive distributors of Apollo Scooters in Australia, we stock all spare parts and accessories, and have a service team that can help with anything post purchase.
Wander around the city streets and alleys of your city (or have fun in trails) with the Apollo Explore. Its 1000W brushless DC motor is a guaranteed hill-crusher and can climb inclines of up to 20 degrees. You can even zoom around up to speeds of 50 kph. That's twice faster than most urban scooters. It can even accelerate to 25 kph in just 3.5 seconds.
And the best part? The Apollo Explore features a 52V 18.2Ah battery (with Dynavolt cells) that allows for exceptional range (max. of 55 km). For a city scooter, that's well above average! All this high-quality performance and the e-scooter doesn't even weigh that heavy at only 23 kg.
Its battery is also equipped with Smart power management to keep it safe from short circuit, overcurrent, and overcharging. And if you don't have the time for the 9-hour charging, use a fast charger to cut it down to 4.5 hours.
Besides that, the Apollo Explore has a fantastically durable featuring a forged aluminum frame, 10-inch pneumatic tyres in the front and rear, and a well-lit LED display.
Plus, you don't need to worry about your safety while out adventuring because the Apollo Explore has got you covered. It has a triple braking system (front disc, rear disc, motor electric regenerative) and incredible suspension (front spring, rear dual spring).
Its lighting system even goes above and beyond. Besides the front and rear LED lights, the Apollo Explore also has a blue LED light on its stem and under the deck.
Indeed, travel around with the Apollo Explore and see what more you'll discover in the city!

After the first test ride with the Apollo Explore, there was definitely so much to love about the scooter. The speed, suspension and handling all felt balanced and suitable for my level of riding experience!
Coming from a Segway E25, the Apollo Explore was understandably a huge a step up on all levels but what I do appreciate that was the same is the folding mechanism; a simple (and quick) press on a lever and it instantly folds.
But regardless of how good a product can be, a massive factor for this purchase was the helpful and friendly advice from Chris (the owner).
Initially, I had intentions to purchase the Apollo Ghost but after some test rides and a discussion with Chris, the Apollo Explore was the way to go. So the gesture of being recommended a less expensive scooter to suit the needs of the rider is an amazing show of customer care over profits!
Will definitely be returning to Electric Kicks for future purchases/upgrades!
The first thing you will notice is the build quality, it is that good!!!
Not only that, but it also has the range, speed and torque for where you need to go and going uphills is not a problem, as it just tears up them with ease.
The suspension is top notch and comfortable, and makes the ride so silky smooth. Also the lights need a mention as well, not only do they light up sufficiently great, but they make the scooter look awesome when lit up.
I’m totally blown away by this scooter and I’m so glad that I got one! This thing is a beast and I love it!
Oh, and a big shout out to Chris for his great customer service!
This unit is a genuine alternative to public transport for a round trip in economy mode of say 50k, with charge enough to afford you a useful amount of juice in reserve. Economy mode taps out at 29KPH, usefully above the specified max for that mode. Peter
ELECTRIC KICKS & COMMUNICATION -
First of all, shout out to Chris from Electric Kicks who was an absolute champ to deal with. Customer service was 10/10. Everything from updates to return calls, notification emails on the progress of the order and even sending emails on checking in and tips and tricks / links to getting started. Was an amazing company to deal with and the #1 Apollo supplier in Australia! Also not sponsored FYI
Cannot fault the order process and will 100% go through Electric Kicks for Scooter upgrades and accessories.
I received the scooter in an undamaged box on time and the first thing I noticed coming from a Xiaomi / Xiaomi Pro is that this bad boy is HEAVY so you need to make sure you live on a first floor or have somewhere to park it undercover outside that doesn't involve a flight of stairs. Luckily mine just fits in the entry stairwell.
UNBOXING / SETUP -
Opening it up I found everything was packed in tight and nicely as not to move during shipping, I'd watched a few setup videos sent by Electric Kicks (thanks again Chris!) and it didn't take too much effort to get it out and setup. I did struggle a little clicking it into place but following the guide it was pretty straight forward. I hooked it up to start charging while I played around customising the handlebar accessories and stem height to suit. All in all everything felt very secure and locked into place.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS -
Just like Christmas everything arrived on the same day. I received a Xiaomi electric pump from Amazon so jumped onto checking the pressure (50psi all-round) and my Thor full face dirt bike helmet - which honestly. if you are riding something with the chance to get up to 50kph don't be silly and get proper protective gear! I promptly took it for a run for around the block. First things I noticed is its a lot higher off the ground than other scooters so its a little difficult to lean in on corners initially, the throttle is also a tad sticky when you are trying to cruise in lower gear but both things I've gotten use to. The grip tape however is the worst part of the Explore, it seems pretty badly installed (I've seen this a lot arounds the webs too) It had a HUGE amount of air bubbles along the deck which required some time to sit there and pop them with a needle and bleed the air our. Not a biggie but when you have such a head turning scooter you want it to look mint especially straight out the box.
IMPRESSIONS 3 WEEKS IN -
I'm lucky to live on the beautiful river walk which is a very maintained bike way into Brisbane city and I have to say this thing is a dream to take into work and back daily. It's exactly what I was looking for upgrading from Xiaomi Pro, its got the speed and build quality to stick to the path and I need to also mention the amazing light show at night without being super overkill. I got a little wobbly going home one night and accidently ran it along a wall and was absolutely shocked when I got home to see it didn't leave a single mark on the side of the deck! Cant recommend the Apollo scooters enough especially if you want a solid built scooter that's got the speed to have a little fun as long as portability isn't an issue for you.
