Unhappy ES4 going too slow

My scooter hit a pothole in the road and glitched out.

I was in super sport mode doing about 18mph when I hit the pothole. It wasn't that serious of a bump, I didn't fall or anything. But strangely after I hit the bump the scooter beeped and then was limited to 11mph.

I restarted the scooter and re cycled through the various sports modes by double clicking the button. When I got back to super sport, the scooter did start going faster, but now I can't make it go any faster than 16 mph. Regular sport mode is now limited to 11mph and non-sport mode is limited to a whopping 6mph. It's like everything leveled down.

Both batteries are still functioning normally.

Is there any way to get my scooter doing 19mph again?

The exact same story to me. Any fixes or leads? Mine was only 1 day old and this happened today, the first day of owning it.

I got a call from segway, they asked me to restart the scooter by holding down the paddles and the power button for 10 seconds. Sometimes this works but mostly it does not.

I have had so many problems with this scooter that it is hard to list them all. Error 42, loose secondary battery, speed issues, the lights won't turn on, charging issues, software glitches, it is unbelievable how unreliable this product is.

Same issues with top speed being reduced and the error 42.
I am not recommending this scooter to anyone else!
