The all steel handlebars are equipped with comfortable soft rubber grips. On the right hand side there is the twist to engage throttle control and on the left there is a hand operated brake lever. Itâ€™s 42.5 inches length is long enough for tall individuals to ride comfortably.
The handlebars along with the frame and wheels make the scooter tough enough for rugged use. The variant with the foldable handlebars offers more portability.
