Great review.  I too ride a ninebot one E and am looking for an upgrade.  I love that there are so many options.  Thanks!

Edit:  upon looking, it diesnt seem like this model is yet available in the states :S

Is this model brand new?  Seems to me like it's an update that reflects the ks16, which I'm also considering...

If you plan on riding distances of at least 20 miles, I'd recommend you go with the KS16S.  The extra 2" in diameter of the wheel and the extra battery power will give you more range and still have lots of power for climbing hills.

It seems  like 16" wheels are the sweet spot for climbing steep long hills while still giving you decent range as well.

Ill realistically only ride maybe 10 to 15 miles on occassion as I live about 1 mile from where I work.  But I'd like to one day maybe go on a long ride.   Hmmm.....

The 14D would probably good enough for you, but I always like to get something a little more than what I think.  That way, later I'm not apt to say "Gee, I wish I would of gotten something a little better".
(But then again, that's me.)

@Jason McNeil has his warehouse out here in Southern California, so if you order from him @ ewheels.com, it will be delivered very fast.
(He's the one that I got my 3 EUC's from.)  I don't know though if he has any instock though, so you'd have to ask him.)

Sorry for my late reply. I din't find anyone selling The Kingsong 14D in the US. Otherwise I would have put a link into my review. The Kingsong 16 is very similar from all i have seen. Glad you liked my review :)

Hi @Ovie Verner I'm interesting in buying a Kingsong KS14D and I have two doubts

1) Is it possible to take off the speaking voices. I wouldn't want my wheel to speak. 

2) Which one do you think is the best option KS14D or KS16S?

Had a couple 14Ds from the last KS order; they're decent Wheels, solidly built, many improvements over the 14C, just the battery pack is a bit small.

They had the one 14 incher with bigger battery options with the 14C, and gave up on it. Whyyyyyy?

Any chance of bigger battery versions of the 14D coming later, or is it constrained by the space inside the shell?

@Jason McNeil Thanks! I'm always hoping a dealer will have explanations for the sometimes baffling manufacturer behaviors. Not much luck as of yet;)

The EUC gods have heard our prayers, there's rumblings of an imminent 840Wh announcement....

Will be modeled the 14S. Does anyone know what the 'S' signifies? Super, Supreme, Sport, Salvation, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?

@Jason McNeil I'm not in the market for a 14 incher, but if I were I'd never go for less than those 840 Wh, so great news!

With the 16S and 18S the S seems to stand for "sports", the leg pads show "Kingsong Sports" on the 16S and 18S (see here) instead of the usual "Kingsong" on the other KS wheels.

Will the 14S also have a stronger motor like the bigger S-es, or is it just bigger battery this time?

The "S" of KS-14S stands for "Sports".It has more beautiful design and more powerful battery than KS-14D. Please wait for it.It will be available at the beginning of June. :laughbounce2:

It looks like they are gonna pop out the side pads like I did on my 16b to make more battery space.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 IKSmxIJ.jpg

Yea it's like a smaller KS16 (non-S). Neat.

No idea about the weight. (If you know how much a 420 Wh pack weighs, that's the extra weight compared to KS14 420 Wh obviously)
