Varla Eagle One Pro

Varla Eagle One Pro Review

$2,099.00 -9%
Introducing the Eagle One Pro, Varla’s biggest and toughest scooter yet.   If you’re expecting an update on the original Eagle One, think again. This is an entirely new direction cut from an entirely different cloth. Faster and feistier, the Pro is Varla’s bid to muscle in on all-terrain scooter fun.   Equipped with huge 11-inch tires, hydraulic suspension, and a tank-like frame, it ticks the boxes required for a robust, off-road juggernaut.   Sure, it’s not without its flaws, but there’s no denying this is a model that represents serious value for money in a category where prices often soar.

Wolf Warrior X GT

Wolf Warrior X GT Review

$2,295.00 -18%
When Kaabo released the original Wolf Warrior X, scooterists who wanted a lighter, smaller alternative to the original Wolf Warrior howled in delight.   This was followed by the Wolf Warrior X Pro, an upgrade that came with a bigger battery and better display, yet, with its inferior Square Wave controllers, a slightly slower acceleration rate and jerky throttle, too. A misstep? Perhaps. But there’s now a new pack leader in town: the Wolf Warrior X GT.   Integrating the best of its predecessors into one complete demonstration of style and substance, this brooding juggernaut is even closer to delivering the X factor that’s been long teased.   It has a few flaws and some areas of its design would have benefited from a refresh, but after all, no electric scooter is perfect. Whether you think it’s good value or not will depend on what you want from a scooter. If that’s a viciously fast model designed to burn rubber on the asphalt, then it's a great option, but if you’re searching for an all-terrain titan that soaks up the irregularities of whatever you can throw its way, then you’d be better off with the Mantis King GT.

Mantis King GT Review

$2,495.00
What do you get when you take all that’s great about a Mantis scooter and feed it steroids? The Mantis King GT. This new and improved titan of Kaboo’s beloved range has upped the ante in every conceivable way.   We were calling for Kaabo to bring innovation to the table and with the GT’s improved frame, higher power output, and robust durability, they’ve more than delivered.   Everywhere you look, the King GT is a statement of intent. Take, for instance, the Samsung battery that can produce a monumental maximum range of 56 miles. Or the upgraded dual 30A Sine Wave controllers that grant you jaw-dropping accelerative control. Perhaps the adjustable hydraulic suspension will be what captures your heart?   With upgrades in almost every area, this stunning all-terrain performance scooter offers big power, exceptional handling, and a design that is guaranteed to turn heads.

SPLACH Titan Review

$1,249.00 -43%
SPLACH is back - and we couldn’t be happier about it.   Following on from its widely popular Twin and Turbo models, the visionary upstart of the scooter world is at it again with the new Titan, a bona fide howitzer that lives up to its name by delivering a level of performance usually reserved for scooters approaching double its price tag.   Featuring plush suspension, powerful dual 1000W motors, and a wealth of well-designed features - including a super easy folding mechanism, impressive lighting rig, and a big battery - the SPLACH Titan is a value-busting thunderbolt that has left other performance scooters scrabbling for a response.   There’s a select group of scooters that have the IT Factor, and the Titan is one of them. Throughout our rigorous hands-on tests, we’ve been extremely impressed with its performance. As a result, we firmly put our seal of approval on this scooter and recommend it highly to anyone wanting a fantastic all-terrain model at an exceptionally low price.

Apollo Ghost 2022 Review

$1,699.00
On the hunt for an entry-level performance scooter that won’t leave you considering therapy when looking at your bank account? A scooter that delivers supernatural power while remaining portable enough to fit in your car trunk for weekend haunts? Introducing the new and improved Apollo Ghost 2022.   Apollo being the venerated God of the scootering world, the brand has once again listened to customer feedback on the original, much-loved Ghost; gone back to the drawing board; and developed an altogether tougher, more powerful, “no frills, high thrills” beast.   Cower in the wake of dual 52V 1000W motors that far surpass the original’s 52V 800W offerings. Glory in a strengthened stem that is now 50% stronger than that wielded by its predecessor. And bask in the brilliance of an upgraded folding mechanism that elevates this spirited firecracker to new levels of design elegance. The people have spoken, and the Apollo Ghost 2022 has answered with what we think is the best entry-level performance electric scooter.

Apollo Air 2022 Review

$999.00 -17%
Apollo isn’t one of the most popular electric scooter brands for no reason. It’s earned our affections by ceaselessly listening to customer feedback and continually improving its range. So, what’s it gone and done now? Taken everything we loved about the Apollo Air and Air Pro, and upgraded them with the Air 2022.   While the Air Pro had a 350W motor that could hit a top speed of 18 mph, and a 36V 10Ah battery with 18 miles in its locker, the Air 2022 ups the ante across the board. The new and improved model now wields a 500W motor with a top speed of 21 mph, while boasting a far superior 21700 36V 15Ah battery that obliterates its older brother with a new maximum range of 31 miles.   And the upgrades don’t stop there. Revamped tires, an enhanced paint job, the addition of a silky smooth regenerative brake, and the super simple folding mechanism that previously wowed users of the new Apollo City all help elevate the Apollo Air 2022 above what was already a winning formula.

Turboant V8 Review

$799.98
Turboant is a certified A-lister of the entry-level scooter fraternity - this accolade alone gives you some indication of what its latest creation, the V8, is all about. Except, that’s like saying Clint Eastwood is just a good actor in Westerns. Because when it comes to pushing the envelope of what’s possible for a budget everyday scooter, the Turboant V8 is a Million Dollar Baby.   Exhibit A: not one, but two batteries (one of which is detachable) that combined, deliver a maximum range of 50 miles. The V8 is the first scooter I’ve ever tested that sports such a feature, and trust me when I say it’s worth its full weight in gold. Allied with a 5-second folding mechanism and surprisingly smooth ride quality, this is a city companion that will have Rita in HR asking where she can pick one up.   It may not win any awards for style or beauty, but the V8 doesn’t care. It’s a model designed from top to bottom to take the wear and tear of everyday life in its stride. It represents a giant step forward for affordable budget scooters.

What do you get when one of the market’s leading manufacturers listens to feedback on their most popular model, acts proactively to address issues raised, and goes above and beyond to raise the bar?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a model that offers more value for money, fun, and practicality in the world of affordable electric scooters.   From the secure removable battery, enhanced folding mechanism, and extended range; to an all-around better frame, sharpened brakes, and refreshed interface: the Turboant X7 Max will delight fans of the X7 Pro. It promises to raise a smile on the face of anyone who is looking for a reliable, spirited scooter that costs less than $600.   With all it has to offer, we firmly believe that the X7 Max is primed to overtake the X7 Pro as the most popular budget electric scooter.

Fluid Mosquito Review

$999.00 -9%
Spawning from a collaboration between FluidFreeRide and commuter scooter visionaries, E-TWOW, the Fluid Mosquito predictably challenges all we’ve come to expect from an ultra-portable model. Is it lightweight? You bet. Is it fast? No doubt. Value for money? Let’s just say there’s no better portable scooter under $1,000.   Billed as the most powerful ultra-portable scooter on this side of Jupiter, the Fluid Mosquito packs quite the punch. In fact, it has an extremely high power-to-weight ratio. Weighing a mere 29 lbs, this little nipper flies down city streets at speeds of 25 mph to transform any commute into a white-knuckle thrill ride.   Coming equipped with a powerful 48V 500W motor, respectable 9.6Ah battery, puncture-proof tires, and seriously impressive suspension, the Mosquito is custom-made for adding zip to shorter urban journeys. Wave goodbye to mundane morning walks to the office because this bottle rocket is about to change your life.

EMOVE RoadRunner Review

$1,795.00 -5%
Is it a scooter… Is it a bike… No, it’s the EMOVE RoadRunner. Powerful dual motors that are of different sizes (an industry first), mammoth 14-inch tires, a large memory foam seat, adjustable MTB fork suspension, and a removable battery pack join forces to produce a ride unlike anything we’ve tested before.   The product of three rounds of rigorous testing and iterations, the RoadRunner is the summation of all that is great about the EMOVE brand: durable design, fantastic range, respectable speed, and an eye for the unconventional. Just don’t let anyone else try it - there’s a strong chance you won’t get it back.   The RoadRunner isn’t perfect - few scooters are. Things can get quite bumpy due to its limited suspension, while the seat may leave your buttocks feeling a little bruised after a while. But these are trifling concerns in the grand scheme of things. EMOVE is shaking up the scooter world with this model, and we’re more than happy to come along for the ride.

SPLACH Twin Review

$999.00
Claiming the honor of being the cheapest and most compact dual-motor electric scooter, the SPLACH Twin is the perfect wingman for riders craving a little more zip as they cruise along city streets in supreme comfort and style.   Boasting top speeds of 28 mph and an eye-popping acceleration of 0-15 mph in just 3.0 seconds, this firecracker wields its 600W dual-motors to dazzling effect. In fact, you will not find a more powerful scooter under $1,000. Period.   Building on the already impressive stats, the Twin’s suspension system, which combines springs and swingarms delivers a level of shock absorption that is more commonly seen on scooters twice its price. No other scooter in the sub $1,000 comes close to the Twin’s ride quality.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Review

$3,399.00 -8%
Many scooters have reduced us to excitable kids, but few left us completely speechless. The NAMI Burn-e 2 has done just that.   The launch of the NAMI Burn-e spun the scooter world into a state of delirious reverie. It changed the game, laying down a marker that even left the Goliath of ultra-performance scooters, Dualtron, scrabbling. The only issue was its price tag. Enter the NAMI Burn-E 2, the new sibling that, though smaller in motor and battery, will nevertheless leave riders of all levels in dumbfounded awe.   It is almost implausible for a scooter of this power and build quality to be available at this price. Yet here we are - and we haven’t even acknowledged the imperious ride quality. Armed with industry-leading KKE hydraulic suspension, the Burn-e 2 has the best suspension that we’ve ever tested. It even beats far more expensive models like the Dualtron X2 which costs a whopping $6,490.   From budget to ultra-performance, fast to long-range, street to off-road, and everything in between, we’ve reviewed every type of electric scooter, and the NAMI Burn-e 2 just took the crown as our all-time favorite.
