Here's a guide to the EMOVE RoadRunner, including direct links to parts and accessories if you want to upgrade or need replacement. Seriously, if it's a component part of the scooter or we have a tutorial on how to do it, we've provided a link.
Please share any questions you have about the RoadRunner in the comments, or write your own post under the EMOVE Scooters category so the community can help you out!
The RoadRunner's signature feature is it's key-locked, removable 48V 26.1 Ah Dynavolt battery (11 lb weight, 18.75" x 5.25" x 3.5", battery mount). It has a matte black 6061 aluminum alloy frame, weighs 55 lb, and has dimensions of 50" x 25" x 38".
It does not have a folding frame, but the Xtasy folding handlebars can be folded and angled for more compact dimensions. The seat is 14" x 8" and has a memory foam insert. The screw-in foot pegs are 13" long and 1.2" diameter, and it has front and rear fenders over the 14.5" x 2.5" inner tube tires (inflated to ~58 psi). It does not carry a water resistance rating but can be ridden in light rain.
The RoadRunner also has Xtech hydraulic front and rear brakes (brake pads) with big 180 mm discs and ABS that you can adjust with a turn knob (over the front suspension). It also has dual front spring suspension on the front, a 280 lumen headlight, and rear brake-responding tail light underneath the seat.
Other key features include: thumb throttle, anti-glare LCD display, light/horn button, dual brake levers, and rubber hand grips.
We will carry more of the component parts of the RoadRunner as we get more in stock.

When you receive your RoadRunner, there will be some assembly. We published an electronic version of an owner's manual, which you can view here.
Using your RoadRunner Basics
Here's and unboxing demo and set up the RoadRunner. You'll make a few installations and get it charged before taking it on the road.
How to fold/unfold the handlebars
To set up the handlebars from the folded position, open the locking latch and swing the handlebars upward. Rotate the latch over the handlebars and hook it to the front of the mechanism, lifting on the silver lock then pressing downward to cinch the handlebars in place. If done correctly, you won't feel any wobble/movement.
How to remove the battery
The easiest way to remove the battery is from the rear of the scooter. First, release the locking mechanism by turning the key counterclockwise. Make sure to remove the key before trying to take the battery out of the frame.
Grab the handle on the battery with one hand and use the other hand to brace against the seat, then slide outward. The top of the battery may catch on the frame; if so, lift the seat slightly until the battery releases.
RoadRunner button functions
The RoadRunner has a 250 lumen headlight and tail light, which are both turned on with a lightbulb button on the handlebars. When braking, the rear tail light will blink. Below the lightbulb button is the horn button (electronic horn is located inside the headlight).
On the thumb throttle are "R" and "I" buttons; the "R" means the rear motor only is engaged. "I" means both front and rear motors are engaged.
On the left handlebar is the LCD display, which includes a power button and a mode (M) button. To power on the scooter, long press on the power button.
Most electric scooters have performance or p-settings. The RoadRunner has 3 p-settings: P1 is low voltage protection (default: 48), P2 is tire diameter (default: 145, 14.5"), and P3 is speed limiter (user preference). Considering this is a 48V scooter with 14.5" tires, the two first settings match the scooter's specifications and should not be changed as it can affect the readout and performance.
For example, if you change the tire diameter to a smaller or larger size, it will affect the accuracy of the speedometer.
To access the P-settings, power on the scooter, then press the power and mode button simultaneously to open the P-settings menu. To cycle through the settings, press the power button.
When you've selected the P-setting you want to adjust, press the mode button to enter the alter state, then press power again to toggle through. Please note that you can only increase values (not decrease) so will need to cycle through to the highest number to get back to 0. To save the setting, hold the power button.
If you do not wish to save your changes, hold the mode button to return to the welcome screen.
Please note that it is highly recommended to ride using the stock or default P-settings for best performance.
RoadRunner Error Codes
If your scooter is experiencing issues, an error code will often display on the LCD. Here are common error codes and what they mean.
- E001 - Controller Fault
- E002 - Signal Fault
- E003 - Hall Sensor Fault
- E004 - Throttle Fault
- E005 - Brake Sensor Fault
- E006 - Motor Fault
Troubleshooting error codes
If you get code E001, elevate the scooter off of its wheels and free spin the motor to see if there is any magnetic resistance. If you unplug the motor wires from the controller and can spin the motor freely, the controller is faulty.
If you get code E002 or E004 and were not able to troubleshoot a solution, you may need to escalate the issue to our technical team for assistance, and/or may need a replacement part to complete the repair.
If you get code E003, try unplugging the battery and the motor hall sensor and plugging it back in, as a common problem is the connection wire becoming loose. Check to see if any of the 5 pins are loose and reconnect them. If that does not work, you may need to replace the battery.
If you get code E005, remove the brake sensors and put them back in. If that does not remove the error, you may need to seek technical support.
If you get code E006, elevate the scooter off of its wheels and free spin the motor to see if there is any magnetic resistance. If you unplug the motor from the controller and it is still giving resistance, the motor is faulty.
