Looking to graduate from the school of more sedate scooters without breaking the bank? Balancing an affordable price point with a sumptuous smorgasbord of features, the VSETT 9R proves that more advanced scooters don’t always have to burn a hole in your pocket. While the chubby pneumatic tires combine with the buttery-smooth swing arm suspension to deliver great ride quality, the 9R falls short when it comes to speed and range against similarly priced scooters.

VSETT 9+R

Range

55 lbs

Weight

$1,699.00 $1,624.00 -4%
Meet the VSETT 9+R – or, as I like to call it, the Frankenstein of the scooter world. The 9+R takes the Zero 8X’s stocky frame, chunky tires, and dual disc brakes, and merges them with the long-range of the Zero 10X. It then doubles up on the Zero 9’s powerful 48V 600W motor and supercharges both with an extra 50 watts of power – adding 9 mph to its top speed (33 mph) – to deliver a ride with plenty of zip. Not to mention, it ranks highly based on our proprietary data of 100+ scooters when it comes to the ratios of both speed and range to weight. Plus, at a price point of just $1,624, it provides plenty of value, too. With explosive bubblegum blue accents complimenting a solid black frame and a dynamic swing arm suspension system that makes it a dream to ride, you won’t want to step foot off it until you’ve run the battery dry.

Hiboy Max V2

Hiboy MAX V2

18.6 mph

Speed

17 miles

Range

35 lbs

Weight

$429.00
Reliability, affordability, and performance; some of the qualities you might look for in a scooter. On paper, the MAX V2 seems all that. Offering a top speed of 18.6 mph, a range of 17 miles, and load up to 265 lbs, it stands out as a strong contender among the budget scooter bracket. It also manages to flaunt high spec features including a water-resistance rating and a mobile app that make it a very exciting prospect. But, there’s a dark side to the MAX V2 lurking behind the makeup of a seemingly good scooter. While Hiboy made a conscious effort to deal with the ride quality that its predecessor – the Hiboy MAX – so dearly struggled with, by adding dual rear shock absorbers to accompany the front spring, the MAX V2, unfortunately, has a subpar ride quality when compared to similarly priced alternatives.

Boasting a titanic range, lightweight frame (for the power on offer), and sitting comfortably within the top 10 fastest scooters, there’s a lot to love about the VSETT 10+R. It negotiates a delicate balance between power and price - delivering a highly versatile and nimble scooter that improves on its younger sibling, the 9+R while packing almost as large a punch as its big bro, the 11+. But most of all (as far as high-performance scooters go) it’s affordable and most certainly a model that no confessed scooter lover can afford to miss. After all, reminiscent of Bumblebee from Transformers, it stands out from the crowd with a flamboyant yet effortlessly stylish robotic and geometric frame.

With an immense range, an eye-popping, commandeering look and feel, and the ability to add a 2-minute injection of speed-enhancing Turbo Boost to your drivetrain, the 11+ is a welcome, character-filled addition to the market. Originally intended to be the PRO line of the well-renowned Zero scooter range, a whole new generation of extreme performance scooters was born. As the top dog in this new generation, the 11+ deliver blistering performance for an affordable price. There are a couple of design quirks and it lacks portability, but it sits at the apex of high-performance scooter excellence. It’s fast, durable, and offers a range of unique features and specs that will have the mouths of scooter enthusiasts watering.

$1,349.00 $1,129.00 -16%
Rolling into the market as the best entry-level dual-motor scooter, it is without a doubt a fantastic choice for first-time riders looking for a model with a bite. It can hit 0-15 mph in just 3.2 seconds, making it around 60% faster than the average commuter scooter. Plus, with the chunkiness of its wheels, spring suspension system, and durable sturdy frame, it affords stability when riding at top speeds (26 mph). Whilst the wide tires take a little getting used to, once you become accustomed to their larger-than-average profile, their unique floating sensation delivers a level of ride quality that is perfectly suited for urban travel, whether that be short commutes or tearing up the backstreets.

Getting top features without the price tag to match isn’t the easiest feat when it comes to electric scooters, but the Hiboy MAX tries to do just that. A reasonably solid performer with a top speed of 18.6 mph, range of 17 miles, 15% incline capability, and load-bearing capacity of 220 lbs, the MAX promises a lot. With premium features like the front shock absorber and mobile app, the MAX looks great on paper. However, it’s not all that it cracks up to be. There are similarly priced scooters that put the MAX to shame.

Hiboy S2R

Speed

17 miles

Range

30.8 lbs

Weight

$469.00
It looks the same, goes as fast (18.6 mph), and has the same range (17 miles) as the Hiboy S2 – so what makes the S2R different? Well, that R stands for Removable battery. As the S2R’s only stand out feature, the removable battery not only makes the scooter more convenient to charge but adds a layer of versatility that the rest of the S2 range can’t match. Most notably, you can pick up an extra battery (+$149) to double up on the 17 mile range. However, when putting the S2R under scrutiny, it's clear to see that Hiboy has sacrificed features from the rest of the S2 range to accommodate the removable battery. You lose the option to add a seat, a champion feature of the S2 and S2 Pro, and the rear dual shock absorbers are also absent. Combined with the solid rubber tires, ride quality is poor. If the S2R had air-filled tires it would be a top contender as one of the best budget scooters but, unfortunately, it misses the mark.

What if you could take the power, speed, range of the Dualtron Thunder, shave off several hundred dollars – and several pounds off the weight – and then equip it with chunky, knobby tires ideal for off-road riding? Well, you can, and it’s called the Dualtron Ultra. Retaining the pedigree and feel of the rest of MiniMotors’ extreme-performance scooter line, the Ultra keeps its ferocious demeanor alongside a durable aerospace-grade aluminum and steel frame. This one’s for scooter lovers, off-road enthusiasts, and thrill-seekers – but not for the faint-hearted. However, there’s no mistaking that there are better scooters for a fraction of the price.

  1. Hi Gavin,

    Thanks for your comment. I don’t believe GoTrax is releasing a new GXL any time soon. They do offer the GoTrax Apex, though, which is a better version of the GXL V2. You can read more about the Apex in my full review here.

  2. Hi Elijah,

    Glad I could help you! Thanks for flagging the wrong code. Please try ELECTRICSCOOTERINSIDER.

    Enjoy cruising!

    Thanks,

    Josh

  3. Hi Dan,

    Great question! I’m going to be updating the page with a brand new list of the best long-range electric scooters in the next few weeks. Keep your eye’s peeled as the EMOVE Cruiser may make an appearance (spoiler alert…it does).

    – Josh

  4. Hi Dhiren,

    Great question! I would opt for the Zing E8 for younger children. For teens, the E22 will be best. The E22 is too heavy for younger children.

    Thanks

    – Josh

  5. Hi Phil,

    You can buy the ZING E10 directly from Segway, here.

  6. Hi Antony,

    You are correct that the Wolf Warrior has a maximum mileage, under prime conditions, of 70 miles.

    Eco mode limits you to about 20 mph so you should be able to take full advantage of the mileage.

    Thanks, enjoy cruising around on the Wolf!

  7. Hi Ace,

  11. Hi Max,

    There are few cheap models out there that have decent mileage. My list of the best cheap electric scooters might help you find a scooter more in your price bracket.

  12. Hi Arja,

    Unfortunately, I only review the scooters – I don’t sell them. I hope you’re able to get your hands on the Mototec FatBoy. Let me know if you need any more help.

    – Josh

  13. Hi Michelle,

    Traveling around Europe and exploring cities on a scooter sounds awesome! My advice would be to opt for a model that, like you said, is light, compact, and has a quick recharge time.

    The Unagi Model One is the lightest scooter I’ve reviewed (it weighs just 23 lbs), folds and can be stored easily, and takes 4-5 hours to fully charge giving you 15.5 miles to cruise round the cities.

    Alternatively, the INOKIM Light is another good option (30 lbs, folds, 4-5 hours charge for 20 miles).

    Or, if you want a cheap model go for the GoTrax GXL 2 (26.4 lbs, folds, 4 charge hours for 12 miles).
