What's the fastest electric scooter?
1. RION THRUST TOP SPEED 80+ MPH
It is impressive that such a machine can be legally ridden on city streets in a world with ever more restrictive laws about where, what, and how we ride. The Rion's top speed depends on how heavy the rider is. This is insane, and the Rion website says that it is not allowed to exceed 80 mph.
What speed will it reach with the limiter off? It is made mainly from carbon fiber and aluminum and has two motors. The tires are slick. Although it is light at 69 lbs, I would guess you will need all the weight you can get at those speeds. The price for all of this speed? It was a cool $10,000.
2. DURON STROM LIMITED - TOP SPEED: 75 MPH
The Rion's trick is to be at the top of the speed limit, but the Dualtron Storm Limited is much more practical. The top speed drops from 5mph to 75mph, but the range doubles to 124 miles. However, we would love to know what conditions and power ratings they used to achieve that figure.
We were wrong to say that Rion was heavy. The Dualtron weighs in at 111 pounds. It is hard to imagine how such a weight could translate into solid construction and a long life span.
It is made from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy and has a weight capacity of 265 lbs. It features front and rear suspensions and ABS on the front hydraulic disc brake. They are flat-proof and have treads.
It is cheaper than the Rion at $7,000.
3. WIPED - TOP SPEED: 74.5 MPH
The Dualtron is only half-an-MPH slower, but the motor is much more powerful and should not cause the Weped to notice steep hills.
However, we are still gaining weight: 121 lbs for the Weped FS. This means that we are entering the territory of E–Scooters. You can't lift and carry the stairs up to your apartment. It does begin to spoil the point.
Although Wiped does not mention ABS, the front and rear suspensions were fitted to the unique aluminum chassis and handlebar posts.
The FS is a limited edition E-Scooter that can only be ordered from the factory. The price range is $9,000 to $19,000
4. BRONCO EXTREME 11 SPORT - TOP SPEED: 70 MPH
The BroncoXtreme11 Sport is not slower than the other three scooters, but it's also a lot cheaper at $3,99, which makes it quite affordable in this company.
The tires are ultra-wide CST Urban Tires, making them suitable for wet or loose surfaces. The coil front suspension has an air shock at its rear and a steering damper.
The vast deck makes it easy to fit even the most oversized feet. It also has a 265-pound weight carrying capacity and 35-degree climbing capability. An LCD shows battery level and other parameters.
5. DUALTRON X2 UP – TOP SPEED : 69 MPH
The scooters perform better the slower you go. Dualtron X2 Up can still reach speeds of 69mph which is enough for most people. It can also carry a massive 330 pounds for up to 91 miles and beat other scooters on charge time.
It has a slightly more extensive set of wheels, 13 inches, compared to the 11 and 12-inch wheels on other models. The wheels are attached to the chassis via hydraulic suspension front and rear.
However, weight is increasing, with the Bronco weighing in at 145 pounds.
At $3,999, this is a well-priced item.
