The scooter can support a weight of 160 kgs. (approx. 320 lbs.). The scooter is not motorized. The scooter folds and collapses for storage into an imitation nylon carry bag that is included with the scooter.

The applicable subheading for the Foldable Scooter will be 8716.80.5090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Trailers and semi-trailers; other vehicles not mechanically propelled; and parts thereof: Other vehicles: OtherOther: Other.
