Mantis V2 18.2Ah
If this is your first foray into the performance market then the Mantis V2 is love at first sight. Sporting dual 60V 1000W motors for just $1,799, this bargain scooter clocks top speeds of 40 mph and accelerates to 15 mph in a blistering 2.5 seconds.
Weighing in at 65 lbs, the Mantis V2 isn’t ideal for commuting, but that’s not its purpose. Instead, this bad boy is perfect for riders who want to take a step up and get a taste for fast-paced adventures.
It’s a weekend warrior, perfect for blazing a trail within a range of up to 33 miles. Hills? Pah. The Mantis V2 eats them for breakfast. Bumpy terrain? Front and rear springs – allied with 10-inch pneumatic tires – mean comfort is assured, wherever the journey takes you. In fact, the Mantis is one of our scooters of choice when it comes to riding comfort.
Why We Recommend It:
It is important to note, however, that reaching the maximum range will require you to ride in Eco mode with a single motor. If you want to unload both barrels on the world and harness their full might, the Mantis V2 will facilitate a range of around 25 miles.
Being a dual-motor scooter, the Mantis V2 guarantees power – but this doesn’t come at the expense of safety. Wide handlebars, an anti-slip deck, a roomy kickplate, and hydraulic brakes ensure you always feel secure and in control. Kaboo – the company behind the Mantis – is a manufacturer known for its build quality, and the V2 carries this pedigree. It is the definition of ‘solid’, with an aviation-grade aluminum alloy frame and a locking mechanism that eliminates stem wobble. Thankfully, the V2 has also done away with the foam handgrips that blighted the V1 and other previous Mantis models – this time around, you can enjoy the greater durability of rubber grips.
The Mantis V2 also comes with a veritable smorgasbord of added features. The handlebar hosts a QS-S4 display that allows you to monitor speed, battery life, distance covered, and riding mode, while a positively beaming headlight and turn signals constitute an upgrade from the V1. The upgrades don’t stop here, though, with the V2 sporting new Sine Wave controllers that allow for a smoother throttle response.
What’s more, there’s mood deck lighting that almost makes you feel like you are riding on the crests of stars. This commitment to style is a hallmark of the Mantis brand and represents another firm thumbs up from us. The simple matte black facade is artfully underscored by flourishes of red on the tire treads and suspension springs.
One area that could be improved is the 60V 18.2Ah battery. It is of a cheaper quality than other models that are equipped with LG variants. The difference here lies in the battery cells. Just as the battery on mobile phones seemingly gets worse the more you charge them, the same can be said for electric scooter batteries – and all other battery types. Batteries with LG cells hold their peak performance for hundreds more charge cycles than those that come with cheaper Chinese batteries (aka FST batteries). There is a silver lining though, by using an FST battery, the Mantis V2 18.2Ah is available for a much cheaper price ($1,799 vs $2,299) than its big bro which shares the same design as the 18.2Ah version, but has a bigger 24.5Ah LG battery.
Crucially, the 18.2Ah battery takes 10-12 hours to charge. This can be cut in half if you purchase a 60V charger, though.
To conclude, the Mantis V2 hits that sweet spot between price and performance. Sure, there are better models out there that have advanced customization features and higher-quality components, yet as a gateway into performance scooters, the Mantis V2 presents a huge upgrade over the V1 version, making it an extremely popular choice.
Mantis Pro V2
Remember that kid at high school who excelled in every sport and smashed every class? That is the Mantis Pro V2. Clocking top speeds of 40 mph and acceleration of 0-15 mph in a head-spinning 2.0 seconds, this dual 60V 1000W motored mini-hurricane has carved a special space between affordability and performance that will delight even the most seasoned of scooter aficionados.
Capable of scaling steep hill inclines, the Mantis Pro V2 excels as both an urban and off-road scooter. Its large pneumatic tires and dual-spring suspension absorb even the most shuddering shocks that dirt tracks and forest trails can throw at you; the result is all-terrain comfort that most models in its class struggle to match.
Why We Recommend It:
This ride quality is bolstered by the Zoom hydraulic brakes and sturdy frame – if it's good enough for aviation, the aluminum alloy blend is good enough for a weekend of high-performance frolicking. Riders can whizz through new frontiers without the fear of stem wobble – and if this wasn’t enough to put a glint in your eye, the Mantis Pro V2 also packs regenerative brakes that help conserve energy and an anti-locking braking system that eliminates the risk of wheel lock and skidding.
Ah yes, the handlebars. These are tough cookies. Wide for maximum comfort, they come with ergonomic rubber grips, easy-to-access braking levers, and an EY3 dashboard, which allows you to monitor your speed, battery life, and mileage. It’s also replete with a range of driving modes, including cruise control for longer rides, and Eco and Turbo modes. Additionally, riders have the option of switching between single or dual motors, meaning you can modulate the scooter’s power with consummate ease.
Elsewhere on the Mantis Pro V2, the deck is spacious and grippy, while lights embedded in the front, rear, and underside serve a dollop of pizzazz to what is already a sleek – if minimalist – design.
From whichever vantage point you look, it’s clear that Kaboo, the line’s esteemed manufacturer, has improved on the model’s little brother, the Mantis V2. This is particularly accentuated with the Pro V2’s larger 24.5Ah battery, which permits the sustainment of peak performance over a longer period and, consequently, longer ranges – even after hundreds of charging cycles. Yes, the charging time is, to put it bluntly, on the lengthy side. Be prepared for a wait of 13-16 hours. Yet, this is easily remedied with the purchase of two chargers. And frankly, the pros outweigh this con.
Similarly, the Mantis Pro is equipped with dual 27A controllers which deliver more torque than the 25A controllers in the Mantis V2 – hence the faster acceleration.
For its price, the Mantis Pro V2 is one heck of a performance scooter – we could chew your ear off about its quality all day long. Ultimately, this high watermark of the Mantis range is a genuine Goliath of all-terrain scootering and the obvious candidate for budgets under $2,500.
Want to be the torque of the town? Well, depending on what floats your boat, the INOKIM OxO may or may not be for you. That’s because this model divides opinion. Adrenaline junkies lament its relatively slow acceleration; conversely, design purists celebrate the undoubted quality of its build and features, alongside its exceptional ride quality.
So, what’s all this fuss over speed? With 40 mph as the maximum, the INOKIM OxO is no slouch. However, the main bugbear is the time it takes to hit its stride, clocking 0-15 mph in a relatively slovenly 3.5 seconds. This is due to its smooth throttle response, which can be frustrating if it's adrenaline that you seek, but this quality also aids the OxO’s smooth ride.
Where the OxO excels is in its range and riding experience. Capable of gliding through 68 miles in a single charge (or an average of 38 miles, taking into account realistic conditions), the OxO has few peers in its category. The 60V 25.6Ah battery requires 13.5 hours of charge time, but you do get a lot of range once it's ready.
Why We Recommend It:
Indeed, we think this is one of the best long-range electric scooters – and it all boils down to ride quality. See, like its predecessor, the INOKIM Ox, the OxO has the same rubber cartridge suspension with adjustable swingarms for High and Low settings. This makes it adaptable to any type of terrain: from smooth urban surfaces to uneven dirt tracks and rugged forest trails. It’s a real chameleon, capable of adapting to any environment and maintaining a supreme level of comfort.
The INOKIM OxO’s flair for damping (i.e. its ability to control compressions and rebounds in the rubber cartridge) also ensures that the wheels remain firmly at one with the ground. The result is a ride akin to running your finger along silk – something springs struggle to replicate.
Then there are its brakes. Cor blimey. Equipped with Zoom hydraulics, the OxO can practically stop on a dime, coming to a complete standstill from 15 mph in 2.7 meters – better than the average 3.0 meters.
The other area of distinction is its build quality. There are few better. Like its forebearer, the INOKIM Ox, the handlebars are sturdy and wobble-free; there’s a premium feel to everything that translates into complete control over the steering column. The grips are also a case study on ergonomic design. The air-filled, slender pneumatic tires facilitate nimble steering, while simple controls allow you to switch between single and dual-motor functionality with ease. That said, the LCD display does look a little archaic compared to the one on INOKIM’s newer model, the INOKIM Quick 4.
Style-wise, the frame is a real sight for sore ears, with irradiating tracts of orange juxtaposing beautifully with the black body to establish a real sense of edge. The deck is also wide enough to cater to all shapes and sizes, with the tapered kickplate adding an extra layer of stability on rough terrain. The only drawback? The material of the deck itself. For its price, you’d expect it to be coated in a veneer of anti-slip material; instead, you get a hard plastic that lacks grip. This can be fixed by adding grip tape, though.
In terms of added features, the OxO is geared in every aspect for user-friendliness: from LED lights that automatically turn on in the dark (though we recommend supplementing these with added lights to boost brightness); to a super simple folding mechanism and a great thumb throttle.
For riders who love attention to detail and sheer design excellence, the INOKIM OxO is hard to beat.
NAMI Burn-e 2
The launch of the NAMI Burn-E Viper spun the scooter world into a state of delirious reverie. It upped the ante, laying down a marker that even left the Goliath of ultra-performance scooters, Dualtron, scrabbling. The only issue was its price tag. Cue the NAMI Burn-E 2, the Viper’s new little sibling that, though smaller in motor and battery, will nevertheless leave riders of all experience levels in awe.
Producing top speeds of 45 mph and accelerating from 0-15 mph in a gum-slapping 1.8 seconds, the NAMI Burn-E 2 is a more affordable stablemate than the Burn-e Viper and its big bro, the Burn-e 2 Max. But don’t be fooled, while its motors are smaller, it still packs enough punch to floor Mike Tyson.
Why We Recommend It:
Its dual 1000W motors provide the power, while the Sine Wave controllers deliver a smooth throttle response that can either ease you into the ride or set the wheels into a spinning frenzy. Combined, the Burn-e 2 makes a mockery of hills and off-road terrain, while its 72V 28Ah battery – despite being 20% smaller than the behemoth carried by the Viper, and 13% smaller than the Max version of the Burn-e 2 – still has an incredible maximum range of 90 miles in its vast locker (50 miles under realistic conditions when riding at top speeds). Charging time stands at a mere 6-7 hours via a single 5A charger.
It is almost implausible for a scooter of this design to be available at this price – especially considering that its big bro, the Burn-e 2 Max – which shares the same core features but with larger motors and a bigger battery – retails for $1,400 more ($4,799 in total). Yet here we are – and we haven’t even acknowledged the imperious ride quality. Armed with industry-crushing adjustable hydraulic shocks and a carbon-fiber stem that is simply outstanding in terms of the steering control that it facilitates, NAMI’s reputation as ‘the Ferrari of electric scooters’ is well-founded.
What’s more, the shock absorbers, which can be adjusted through a simple turn of a dial, outstrip any other form of adjustable suspension on the market. Given its ability to be customized to your preferences, not only in the performance of its shocks but also in the way that you can create customized riding modes, you’ll feel at one with the NAMI Burn-E 2.
Of course, with a scooter that wields this kind of chutzpah, safety and security become even more important. The NAMI Burn-E 2 retains all that is great about its siblings in this regard – and even improves on them. Gone are the slightly-too-narrow handlebars, with wider versions installed to enhance overall control, while braking also feels more attuned thanks to the new Logan 2-piston hydraulics.
The deck is also spacious enough to cater to all sizes with grip strips ensuring that you always retain a sense of stability – even at top speeds.
As with the original Burn-e models, the NAMI Burn-E 2 comes with a plethora of cockpit features. There are multiple driving modes to sink your teeth into, as well as a handy USB port to charge your phone on the go. Hand controls also allow you to easily activate the powerful 2000 lumen headlight, side LEDs, and bright turn signals – which this time wrap around the deck ensuring passers-by who have just gotten over the shock and awe of witnessing this baby in action can clearly see where you intend to go. There’s also the horn which is loud enough to deafen an elephant.
With exceptional ride quality and a sackful of small – but important – improvements over previous NAMI models, the Burn-E 2 is a fantastic option for riders who want a top-tier 2000W electric scooter.
