Bird is one of the top names in electric scooters right now, and it charges prices that reflect its brand recognition. The popular Bird ES1-300 Electric Scooter, for example, sells for a whopping $600. With Christmas right around the corner, however, Amazon is running a killer one-day sale on Sunday that slashes the price all the way down to just $349. That’s a tremendous deal, but there’s another option you might want to consider instead. The Gotrax GXL V2 Commuting Electric Scooter is the best e-scooter we tested this year, and it has the same top speed as the Bird model that’s on sale today. It also has nearly as much range per charge, and it’s down to its lowest price every right now — just $248!
