Inokim OXO Review
The 2023 Inokim OXO - $1999
We previously reviewed the 2021 version of Inokim’s OXO electric scooter and found it “close to perfect” but for a few flaws. Those included sluggish acceleration and a high price tag for a scooter with some relatively modest specs.
Our two biggest issues with Inokim’s flagship scooter have definitely been resolved in the 2023 model; some minor quibbles aside, when it comes to price vs. performance, the OXO hits the mark.

A Smooth Ride for Long Hauls
Inokim gets credit for inventing the electric scooter as a garage project in 2009, but their own lineup of consumer scooters hasn’t changed much in the intervening years, a tribute to the company’s stability and longevity, some might say, and a commitment to a design aesthetic that is as functional as it is stylish.
However, the company has had to play catch-up to an evolving competition. Their name means “speed” in Japanese. Have they lived up to the moniker? Is the 2023 OXO a good value? Read on to find out.
Who Is This Scooter For?
With its high speeds, dual motors, and long range, the OXO works as a daily driver and weekend thrill ride for anyone from the casual commuter to the serious scooter enthusiast.
