Ok, so it’s been a full 3 weeks since I’ve picked up my Gogoro 2+ and I think it’s enough time to give a quick review. I’m still working on getting the right amount of footage (and time) for a full on vlog introducing the vehicle.
I waited a total of 58 days from the day I paid in full to the day that I picked up the vehicle. According to my observations in the the Gogoro Fans Club FB page, it was about an average 60 day wait time. The sales contract does state that you will receive it in 90 days.
I added my sales rep’s LINE (Winnie @ Rao He store) and whenever I had inquiries, I would directly LINE her. So, when she got word I got matched to a vehicle, she messaged me and told me to sign into the app. (If you were not matched to a vehicle, you were not able to sign into the Gogoro mobile app) The indication that you can sign in means, your Gogoro is on its way to the store!
For pick up, make sure you bring photo ID. The scooter is registered under my cousin’s name, but I signed the sales contract. They asked who the scooter was registered to, it didn’t match my ID, but was quickly sorted and they reeled out my scooter from the back
Compared to my 10 year old Kymco Jockey (G3), the Gogoro 2 is a dream to ride. Suspension is better and it’s much heavier, giving it good balance and I don’t feel all the bumps on the road.
Battery swapping takes a total of 10-15 seconds. The charge station itself will take 6 seconds from the second you insert 2/2 of the batteries. I’m on the unlimited plan, so I’ve been going on late night joy rides to unlock some of the badges/achievements. It does take you to some places you normally do not, which I’m not complaining too much about.
All in all, so far, worth every penny. Also, knowing that I’m doing what I can do create less pollution is the cherry on top of the cherry.
Here’s another pic to top off the review, electric scoot only parking spaces under the district gyms! Feel free to leave any comments below if you guys have questions. I’ll try to push out a vlog soon.
