How to Unlock the Speed Limit of Obarter e-Scooters

To ensure safety and meet the electric scooter regulation of most European countries, Obarter electric scooters have the manufacturing default 25km/h speed limit. But some people may feel that driving on urban roads at a compliant speed is a waste of powerful motors, after all, electric scooters like Obarter X3 and Obarter X5 have two 1000W+ motors, and the maximum speed can easily reach 55-75km/h. In this article, I will show you how to unlock the speed limit of Obarter electric scooters.

Normally, the speed limit can be released by setting on the screen. However, in case you still cannot reach the maximum speed after setting on the screen, we will introduce another method to solve the speed limit in the second part.
