The X7 is an inexpensive, no-nonsense folding electric scooter. It does away with needless frills and focuses real benefits with large tyres and a battery you can swap out in seconds.
User-swappable battery – Unlike other scooters, the battery on the X7 can be removed from the head tube in seconds, with no tools. Swap the stock 5Ah battery out for a 6.4Ah unit to expand your range. This lightweight, compact batteries can be charged in under 3 hours, externally from the scooter with the standard charger, meaning you can always have one topped up and ready to go.
Paired back but not basic – Opting to cut the fat, Decent have delivered a frill-free scooter that covers the basics, to a high standard. Fitted with large grippy tyres, simple throttle control, headlights, taillights and even cruise control, it is a joy to ride. It also retains the usual bright LED display showing essential information including current speed (in kph or mph) estimated battery capacity and current drive mode.
The ride – When it comes to tyres, bigger is definitely better. The fat 10inch tyres provide a plush ride, improving ride-comfort and reducing fatigue on longer journeys. This pneumatic setup uses the common Schrader ‘car-type’ valve ensuring you can pump your tyres up everywhere. The soft, deep sidewalls do a fantastic job of soaking up the bumps but also mean that the tyre can be easily removed and refitted without specialist tools, should they need to be replaced or a puncture occur. The large diameter tyres also grant the scooter excellent ground clearance for riding over rougher terrain.
Performance – From a short push off, the X7 will hit 15.5mph in ‘sport’ mode and climb a 15 degree incline all thanks to its torquey 350w front hub motor. Tap the menu button to switch to Standard or Eco drive modes, offering lower top speeds ideal for cruising to maximise that 15 mile per-battery range. Alongside the braking force of the hub motor, the rear wheel features a powerful mechanical disc brake to quickly bring the scooter to a halt. Standing on the rear fender can further shorten braking distances in emergency situations. Mounted ahead of the metal brake lever is a small bell for announcing your presence, whilst the scooter also features an LED headlight plus an LED rear running light that flashes during braking.
Reliable – Utilising a tried and tested clamp mechanism with minimal play, the X7 feels safe and sturdy. Compared with other scooters, it offers great rider confidence when paired with the grippy rubber footplate and handlebar. Fitted with mudguards it can even be ridden on wet surfaces. At 102cm from the deck, the handlebars of the scooter are perfectly positioned for comfortable use by adults. Weighing just 13kg, it can be easily lifted, the majority of the mass in the oversize headtube that can be grasped to for carrying when folded. Collapsed down it measures just 108 x 42 x 46cm, compact dimensions that allow it to fit under a train seat, or stow in even the smallest of car boots. Tight on space? The grips can be easily unscrewed by hand, should you need to fit the scooter down the back of the sofa. Unfolded, the securing prong doubles up as a luggage hook for small bags.

What is covered under the warranty
Everything is covered if any manufacturing defects are found out of the box and reported to Modus Brands within 14 days of customer sale (proof is required).
The warranty excludes: – Brakes – Tyres
The warranty can be voided however if:
– The scooter has not been maintained, so missing parts etc.
– If the scooter has been misused, for instance, two people trying to ride it at the same time causing it to go over the weight limit
– If it has been used during rain – while it can take splashes, it’s HIGHLY recommended to not use it during a downpour
– If it has been modified in any way including the firmware.
What do they deem as fair wear and tear
All consumable parts including tyres, inner tubing, brake discs, brake pads are not covered by warranty outside of the DOA period of 14 days, as these are wear and tear items.
Where do we, the retailer, return it to
Everything to be booked in like a normal RMA to Modus Brands, if we need to send it to the manufacturer then we will let you know, however, we will always try to repair it in-house first.
Do we get the customer to return to us or forward on to you or does the customer deal directly with Modus or the brand?
It’d be yourselves we deal with, all RMA’s for every brand we ask that the reseller deals with us and never the customer – more often than not, we will not have any information on the customer other than an RMA number which will be associated with your account. The customer can return it to us directly if they like, as long as the RMA number is included so we can identify the return, but again we cannot deal with the customer directly once we have it.
