What is good and bad in Primus Bike?

  • Primus Positives

    Spacious seat, Smooth power delivery in all riding modes, Good price to performance ratio

  • Primus Negatives

    Drum brakes feel inadequate given the scooter’s 130kg weight, Plastics quality feels sub-par in places, Low-set handlebar will foul with knees while taking U-turns, Instrument console feels too basic

  • Expert's Conclusion

    The Primus offers fairly decent performance and features, but for a little more money you can get more premium e-scooters like the base TVS iQube and Ola S1. Ultimately the Primus is an adequately capable, but forgettable, electric scooter.
