Mantis Pro SE

40 miles

Range

65 lbs

Weight

$1,899.00
If you’re a fan of the original Mantis Pro, you could be forgiven for a sense of deja vu when admiring the Pro SE. Standing for ‘Special Edition’, the SE takes all the good stuff from its big brother and improves on them. With a rapid 40 mph top speed, a brutally fast acceleration rate, full hydraulic brakes, and reinforced stem for durability, the Pro SE isn’t just affordable – it’s one of the best performance scooters on the market. If you thought the Pro SE was content to sit in the shadow of the original, think again. This slick, style-conscious scooter has carved out its own identity.

With wide, ergonomic handlebars, pneumatic tires, and robust spring suspension cushioning you from the impact of rougher surfaces, the 9+ is a classy, comfortable ride that you won’t want to miss.

The EMOVE Cruiser is the best scooter under $1,500 – period. Compounding monstrous range and load-bearing capacities with a multitude of extra features - including an IPX6 water resistance rating, telescopic stem, and a choice of five colors – the EMOVE Cruiser is just as much fun as it looks. But all that style doesn’t mean the Cruiser overlooks substance. With semi-hydraulic brakes, silky spring suspension, and plump car-grade pneumatic tires all combining for a superb riding experience, the Cruiser delivers on all fronts. You won’t have to break the bank to get your hands on it, either.

$4,499.00
It’s finally here. The future of the ultra-performance scooters has landed, and its name is the NAMI Burn-e (a.k.a the ‘Viper’*). Capable of wind-whipping speeds of up to 60 mph and a range of 100 miles off a single charge, the Viper is a venomous, versatile scooter that easily vindicates its large $4,499 price tag. Offering similarly volcanic levels of acceleration as Dualtron’s industry-leading line of scooters, the Viper isn’t content to merely match the market’s finest models – it tops them. The Viper is better-designed than its closest competitors, while its feature set is unparalleled across the electric scooter industry. With a range of riding modes, a pair of exclusively designed Sine Wave controllers, and the option to customize, you absolutely get what you pay for. The Viper is the ultimate scooter. Some minor areas need improvement, but it has everything you could want, making it the most complete package out of our 100+ database of electric scooters.

Range

25 lbs

Weight

$249.00
If you’re looking to cruise around town with your friends or even ditch the bus and rock up to school in style, then the Hiboy NEX might be a good option for you. A lightweight scooter that boasts a stylish aesthetic, the NEX appears as though it’s an ideal entry-level scooter for young teenagers. However, the solid tires and lack of suspension mean you’re in for an uncomfortable ride on anything but pristine roads and sidewalks. If you look beyond its shiny exterior, the NEX’s value for money comes into question when compared against similarly priced scooters.

Entering the exceedingly competitive budget scooter market, Hiboy’s NEX3 struggles to step on the toes of its rivals despite boasting decent specs. The NEX3 has a top speed of 16 mph and a max range of 16 miles as well as an advertised hill climb of 15%, all of which suggest the scooter can hold its own in terms of performance. Yet its biggest flaw is ride quality. The 8.5 inch solid tires struggle to absorb bumps and cracks, while the lack of shock absorbers guarantees a brain massage. There are better similarly-priced scooters.

Taking your first step into the big, bad world of performance scooters can be daunting and thrilling all at once.

With its supernatural design and hauntingly fast acceleration, this scooter offers a phantasmal set of features designed to take your riding experience to the next level. Even better, it does it without blasting through your life savings, making it the best introductory performance scooter.

As the most affordable model in the VSETT range, the 8 offers a perfect combination of a scooter that’s as easy on the eye as it is on your budget, with the performance to match. For the price and power on offer, you won’t get much better speed, range, and hill-climbing than what the 8 delivers. Its stack of neat features – which includes an NFC key lock immobilizer, adjustable suspension, and telescopic stem – is a bonus to its alluring, army-issue color scheme that will appeal to a wide array of riders.

With a steely khaki color palette, telescopic stem, and a mileage that’s almost the best in its class, the VSETT 8R doesn’t just look the business – it means it. Straddling the worlds of entry-level and performance scooters, the 8R suits riders across a range of abilities. Granted, some of its core specs – namely speed and acceleration – fall short of the high performance we’ve come to expect from the VSETT lineup. However, the 8R still offers a compact, comfortable ride, with a look and feel that will appeal to aesthetically oriented riders.

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.

  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,

    Thanks for dropping a comment. We are looking into possibly reviewing some EUCs like the ones you spoke about in the near future, stay tuned!

  8. Sure thing Marc, enjoy cruising around on your new scooters!

  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).

    – Josh
