Updated on: 2019-09-03

Intro

Sup, Insiders? We’re going to be going over the Cafe Racer Motto Pod system. This is a closed-end system. So the big question is how does it compare to some of the best closed-end systems on the market right now? Watch the whole review and find out.

What’s In The Box

Also included in the packaging is you get a really nice flat Motto USB cable for recharging and you also get a warranty card.

  • 1 Rechargeable MOTTO Device
  • 1 Micro USB Charger
  • 3x  1.8ML Mix Pack of Pods (Kick Ass Mint, Tangerine Ice, and Virginia Tobacco)

Quick Tour

Check it out, kind of has that like semi rubbery type of finish to it. It does pick up some fingerprints as you can see but it does feel nice and smooth in the hand. Here is your flavor pack right here. You kind of pull it out, grab it out like that. I open them all up because I tried them all. This was the Tobacco, this is like an Ice Tangerine and this is like a mint.

Let me show you what the pods look like. This is the Virginia Tobacco pod, there’s you draw hole right there. I like that they’re color coded like that, man. I like that. There are your gold-plated contacts on the bottom. There are gold-plated contacts inside there, I don’t know if you can see them or not. 

Now check this out, man. Here are the pods, they are little tough to get out sometimes, gotta give it a little pull and you can put them in either way. Now listen to that. Nice clicky sound, I definitely like that. It’s got a really nice mouth-to-lung draw. Very, very cigarette like. The flavors are fantastic but we’re going to talk about the flavors a little bit more up top.

Size Comparison

Just wanted to give you a quick size comparison. Here is the Myle right here, I wanted to show you some other closed end systems. This of course is the Motto and here is the Juul. You can see it’s pretty, pretty similar to the Myle. Definitely a little longer but pretty similar in size just a little bit longer. As far as the Juul goes, the Juul is a lot, you know, pretty much the same width but the Juul is definitely shorter, maybe not as wide either but again very similar form factor. This is definitely bigger though.

The Flavors

Alright, Insiders! We’re back on top. I wanted to go over the flavors on top because it’s kind of tough to do down low. Right now I have the Virginia Tobacco in here and check it out. Nice drawer, nice mouth to lung drawer, I definitely like the drawer on this. The tobacco is actually really nice, it’s light, it’s not as harsh as say the Juul Tobacco one. It’s definitely a little smoother maybe a little bit of a lighter tobacco flavor. More like an RY4 type of tobacco but really, really nice. Very satisfying, I have to say that. 

Next one we’re going to try out is the Tangerine Ice. Let’s try that one out. I love that click, this thing clicks in there so nice. You definitely get that nice citrusy hit. You kind of feel the mint on the back end, the ice on the back end. I’m really not an ice guy but this one, it’s kind of refreshing, it really is. I can definitely see myself vaping this outside in the summer. It’s actually very nice. It gives you a nice refreshing citrusy type of taste. It definitely tastes more like tangerine than orange, that’s for sure. I could see myself vaping this in the summer. It’s nice, very, very nice. I like that. That’s probably my second favorite flavor so far next to the tobacco. Let’s try the Kick-ass Mint now and I’m not a mint guy, I’m really not. Strong type of almost like a spearminty type, like a dentyne ice type of flavor to it. Not my thing, I’m not a mint guy but I could see using this as like a change of pace type of flavor. If I kind of get sick of one of the other flavors I could pop this in for a few puffs, take a few polls on it and then switch back to my regular flavor. That’s the way I would use this flavor. I’m not a minty type of vaper but it definitely tastes accurate like the other two and it’s nice for you people that like the mint stuff, you’ll definitely like this. Nice solid flavor, that’s for sure. All three of them are very, very solid. I do like the tobacco the best, the Tangerine Ice is my second favorite and the mint would be number three but I would only use it as a change of pace type of flavor.

Cons

I really only have one con on this pod system and that is that the flavors only come in the 50 mg strength as far as I can see. I haven’t been able to find any other flavors at a lower milligram of nicotine so that’s going to be a con because I would like to see a 25 mg pod for it, that’s for sure.

Let’s move on to the pros because there are definitely some pros with this little pod system.

Pros

First is its slim, its sleek, it’s very pocketable, very Juul-like. I definitely like that type of form factor. 

All three of the flavors, you just saw me vape them, they’re all very solid and very accurate, that’s a pro. 

You get some decent clouds from it. It’s more like a ghosting setup but you definitely get that satisfying nick hit, so that’s a big pro. 

I like the way they packaged it in the kit. I like that you get the mod, you get the charging cable, you get the three pods. I think that’s a fantastic way to package it. Nice job on that, Cafe Racer. Big, big pro.
