Invacare Orion Metro Mobility Scooter
Invacare's Orion Metro is a compact 8 mph scooter from a leading manufacturer, offering reliable performance, comfort and a lengthy range, as well as updated modern styling.
The Orion Metro is relatively compact for an 8 mph scooter, making it a good choice for those that need speed, but who don't have the storage space for a full-sized scooter, or who need the extra manoeuvrability the Metro's excellent steering provides. The Metro has both front and rear suspension, although this suspension is not as good as that found on the higher-end Orion Pro and Comet Pro; the Metro also features notably smaller wheels at 11", rather than the 12" and 13" the other two respectively feature. Additional seat-post suspension is available as an extra if wanted. Twin 50 Ah batteries provide a range of up to 21 miles on a single charge.
Invacare's rubberised shroud material makes the Orion Metro more resistant to impacts, reducing the chance of it picking up dangerous cracks and sharp edges. The colour-impregnated black plastic also minimises the visibility of scratches, helping to maintain the appearance of your scooter.
The full range of Invacare storage options can be fitted, including the ever-popular lockable front box, mobile phone holder and USB charger. A choice of classic colours of marble white, indian blue, jade green, diamond silver and jasper red are all available as standard, while the premium range of colours including carmine red, iconic chrome, electric blue, luxor beige and crystal copper are an optional extra. This allows you to customise the appearance of your scooter, enhancing its modern and stylish appearance.
A three-wheel variant of the Orion Metro is also available, though it should be noted that this comes with a reduced top speed of 6 mph. Both variants of the Orion have a notably lower weight capacity than many other 8 mph scooters, at just 21 stone, which should be taken into account when ordering.
A two year warranty (12 months on batteries) gives you the assurance that the Orion Metro is a reliable and sturdy scooter that can be trusted to perform for you in the long-term.
The Orion Metro is best suited to those after a compact and reliable modern 8 mph scooter, and is available for long-term hire, purchase and on the Motability scheme.
