Sorry what I meant to state in the above post is that the speedometer tops out @ between 30-32 kphJust a heads-up for people interested in buying a Daymak Chameleon.
My situation may be unusual but you should check this out before you buy
I purchased my Daymak Chameleon Ultimate around the beginning of
The speedometer tops out @ 20-32 kph it will not register speeds faster
than that even if the scooter is travelling @ 50kph.
The led lights on the sides of the scooter can only be set on either green
Apparently the colours of yellow, orange, and red are not available.
One of Daymak's top technicians was sent over on March 29th to set-up my colours he stated that they had received a new shipment of scooters and he felt these had only the blue and green colours available for some reason.Weird. I have had mine over a year now and I would say the speedo is pretty accurate. Mine tops out about 56-57 kph, certainly nowhere near the 40 mph Daymak advertised. And you can dial in any hue or intensity via the app.
Hello, So we bought 2 of these Daymak Chameleon E-scooters, they were suppose to come with rear solar charging cases, it has been a year and we still have not received the cases or the replacement brake handle that was broken during the terrible shipping condition. Daymak has been avoiding us, not returning emails or calls. The quality of these e-scooters is cheap china walmart junk, don't wasted your money or time on them. Find a high quality conversion kit with braking recovery and install on your bicycle. That is the best option. Don't buy Daymak! Can't stress that enough.I've been interested in this bike. For $2K on Indiegogo you get a 2kwh 84v Li battery and 500W motor, and it qualifies as a bicycle, so you can use bike lanes or go up to 37mph on the street. Seems like a near-perfect urban vehicle to me.
I took a test ride on a GenZe 2.0 (3K$), and found that the riding position was horrible - monkey-bars up at shoulder height, and no adjustment possible.
Daymak's customer service certainly does not enhance their chances of earning future repeat business.Hello, So we bought 2 of these Daymak Chameleon E-scooters, they were suppose to come with rear solar charging cases, it has been a year and we still have not received the cases or the replacement brake handle that was broken during the terrible shipping condition.

Is that a Bichon Frise in your profile picture?I've had my Chameleon 84V lithium for just over a year. For the most part I am happy with the bike itself but I have had some good and bad service from Daymak and local Daymak dealers.
I chose this bike in particular because it checked all the boxes for me. I am 330+ pounds and I live in an area with a lot big hills so I needed a bike that could carry my heavy ass around and up hills. The Chameleon is the only bike I have found that had specs within my acceptable range.
When I received the bike, it was fully assembled and strapped to a pallet with a Hamilton box over top. There were scratches on many plastic body pieces and a regular cargo box - not a solar - but Daymak replaced the damaged pieces. We heard that the solar boxes came in months ago but even after an email to Daymak, I haven't rec'd mine yet. In testing the range, I rode the bike to work for 3 days without charging, 21 km each way, and got about half way home on the third day before it died. About 115 km. My battery meter never registered anything but full until the third day on the way home. Within the first week of riding it I had some brake bolts fall off so I had to leave the bike at home while I waited for Daymak to send me replacements. I have a Samsung phone and I have never been able to connect to the bike with the app. My husband has a Google phone so I had to borrow his to connect. Then one day I stupidly decided to play with some of the settings of the bike and now I have lost 32 kph governor. I called Daymak and they gave me the password for the dealer part of the app and some settings that got me close to the legal 32 kph but I am still technically not legal. I just keep to the 32 kph on my own. The local dealers are not much more help. My calls have gone unreturned from one dealer and when I had my bike in to another dealer for a warranty issue, the guy decided to be "nice" and tighten my cargo box. Unfortunately, rather than using the correct bracket (which had also fallen off I guess) he screwed the box through the plastic directly into the metal of the cargo rack. Needless to say I haven't been back to his shop since. He also cut a piece of a commercial mat to "replace" the battery cover mat that I didn't send with the bike. Again, trying to be nice but....it looks really ghetto.
My pet peeve from the beginning has been the battery cover mat. Surely, there is a better solution than this silly mat that flies off. A molded plastic cover that snaps closed would be so much better in my opinion. The only other thing that bothers me on a daily basis is the dirty looks and nasty comments I get from guys on regular bikes. I've had "What the f*ck are you doing here?", "Get that thing off the bike trail", "You're cheating, you know" and a silent scowl with a thumbs down gesture. I even got yelled at from a guy in a car for being on the bike trail.
All in all, I would recommend this bike.
