What’s better than one motor? Two of course.
Once you’ve been riding an electric scooter for a while, it’s hard not to become addicted to how much fun they can be. Pretty soon, you’ll probably find yourself outgrowing your single-motor scooter that opened the gates to the scooting world and looking for something with more power.
Welcome to the world of dual motors, my friend.
High speeds, rapid acceleration, ferocious torque — choosing a scooter with a second motor adds a healthy injection of adrenaline and thrill to any ride. These beauties are perfect if you’re ready to take the next step and level up your scooter game.
Below, I’ve reviewed the best dual-motor scooters. For ease of use, I've split them by price so you can find an option suitable for your budget and experience level.
Unagi Model One (Dual Motor)
Think couture, but in scooter-form. The Unagi Model One is all about fine design and clean lines, channeling a futuristic aesthetic that will appeal to modern city dwellers. Sporting dual motors with a peak output of 1000W, this scooter is more than just a pretty face and will see you quickly reaching speeds of up to 20 mph thanks to its punchy torque and zippy acceleration.
Fun, thrilling, and comfortable – the Widewheel Pro does it all. This scooter comes with dual 500W motors that allow you to reach a top speed of 26 mph and, as the name suggests, ultra-wide tires that deliver a comfortable ride across city terrain. It’s the perfect urban companion and is guaranteed to be a head-turner, even if it is on the slightly heavier side.
Apollo Pro 52V (Regular Brakes)
A perfect introduction to the world of performance scooters, the Apollo Pro 52V comes with two ferocious 1000W motors that have a combined peak output of 2400W and a top speed of 38 mph. This scooter is just at home on forest trails and mountain paths as it is on smooth city sidewalks, making it ideal for riders who want the best of both worlds.
Boasting the same Mini Motors pedigree but at a fraction of the price, the Speedway 5 is ideal for city dwellers looking for a fast-paced, urban thrill-ride. Its 3600W dual-motor drivetrain means that it delivers impressive power, speed, and range, whilst still keeping the weight down compared to similar models.
The best off-road performance scooter, the Wolf Warrior has power by the bucketloads, boasting dual-motors with a peak output of 5400W and a top speed of 50 mph. This bad boy chews up hills, trails, and mountain paths without breaking a sweat. A true powerhouse of a scooter, the Wolf Warrior is everything adrenaline junkies could want in one muscular, motorcycle-like package.
Dualtron’s answer to the Wolf Warrior, the Ultra is a true off-road beast. Featuring a maximum output of 5400W, there’s not much that will slow this scooter down, hills, and off-road trails included. It features staggering torque and acceleration and its reinforced frame has been designed to withstand everything off-road riding has to throw at it.
The Dualtron X is the most extreme scooter I’ve ever reviewed, pushing boundaries in all the right ways. Its dual motors can put out a staggering 6720W, propelling you up to 55 mph. This is an experienced rider’s dream and when you feel its torque and acceleration for yourself, even the steep price and back-breaking weight will feel like insignificant details compared to the might of the X.

What better place to start than with the machine that is regularly referred to as the iPhone or Tesla of the scooter world? A masterclass in sleek design and understated cool, the Unagi Model One delivers dual-motor power for those who have a penchant for luxury but still need to keep their costs below $1,000.

Unagi Model One Scooter Unboxing – Is It Weird I Find It Sexy?
A complete unboxing and look at the Unagi Model One scooter. From close-ups of the frame to talking through the exotic materials used to mill such a gorgeous scooter, this video will show you exactly what you can expect from the Unagi.
When selecting your Unagi, the E500 is the way to go if you’re after increased power and zippy acceleration. Each of the Model One’s 7.5-inch wheels sports a 250W motor capable of putting out a peak wattage of 1000W, helping you reach a top speed of 20 mph. This kind of pace is ideal if you’re looking for an urban warrior capable of weaving in and out of city streets.
The added power from the second motor also means that getting ahead of other road users is simple. Single-motor scooters can sometimes feel sluggish when taking off, but this isn’t something you’ll need to worry about with the E500. Even a slight squeeze of the throttle will have you leaping forward. Not only that but the 32-newton meters of torque it offers will allow you to tackle hills with inclines of up to 15 degrees thanks to its increased traction. To put this into perspective, Filbert Street, the steepest street in San Francisco, has a maximum gradient of 17.5 degrees.
With the Model One, coming to a stop is just as easy as taking off. It features dual electronic anti-lock brakes and a rear foot brake — handy if you ever find yourself short on battery and have to ride the E500 as a manual scooter. Combined, this setup will slow you down completely in around 4 to 5 meters. I prefer to see a double braking system like this on a dual-motor scooter because it balances out the extra power and guarantees a controlled and responsive braking action.
But the Model One isn’t just about horsepower. Designed with infinite care and attention to detail, its focus is on delivering a comfortable and convenient experience for its riders. It’s one of the most portable scooters, weighing just 26 lbs and folding down to a very compact size with the click of a single button. Even better, it manages to achieve this whilst still being extremely hard wearing and durable.
Here's a closer look at the one click folding mechanism:
This is because it’s made from TORAY carbon fiber. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s the same stuff as Elon Musk uses to build his Space-X rockets. If you ever dreamed of traveling to outer space, this is probably the closest you’re going to get.
The Model One’s quality also extends to its battery. Made by well-respected tech behemoth, Sony, you can rest assured that the E500 comes fitted with a unit that will last for many years to come. Unagi states that under best-case conditions, you can reach a maximum range of 15.5 miles – however, based on my experience, you can expect to see around 10-11 miles which is ideal for most city exploration. When you need to recharge, the E500 will hit full battery in just 4 to 5 hours.
Every element of this scooter combines functionality with aesthetics, even down to the paint, which acts as an anti-abrasive layer. It also prevents rust — that’s if any liquid manages to sneak its way past the IP54 waterproof rating. Unlike other scooters on the market, the superior paintwork comes in 4 vivid colors. Or if you want something more personalized and you’re willing to pay a bit extra for it, you can choose from several patterned skins featuring everything from skulls to flowers. Better yet, you can even design your own, resulting in an electric scooter that is unique to you and your taste.
Not only does the E500 look like it belongs in an urban environment, but it’s built for city cruising too. Its rubber tires were designed for optimum comfort on flat metropolitan terrain but, despite being equipped with air pockets throughout their circumference, they lack buttery-smooth shock absorption when compared to air-filled tires. Sure, the solid tires diffuse some vibrations but the lack of suspension lets the Unagi down. It particularly struggles on rough roads.
It’s clear that this scooter is the product of thorough testing and careful consideration. All of its components work together to deliver a ride that is enjoyable for the user, whilst the dual motors give it the added oomph more experienced riders are looking for. At $990, the Model One allows you to keep your budget under $1,000. Whilst it dishes up some seriously high-quality features that are responsible for its luxurious reputation, it falls short in rider comfort. If you’re willing to drop one motor but pick up a scooter that has 5 more mph, 12.5 more miles, and an excellent combination of dual spring suspension in rear and front, then you should definitely consider the Apollo City ($999).
Did you know that dual-motors and beefy tires go together like fine wine and aged cheese? It’s true — not only do big wheels look awesome but they come with a ton of advantages that make them a key feature to look out for. One of the best examples of this in action is the Mercane Widewheel Pro. These guys are so on board with the big tire vibe, they even named their scooter after it.
Equipped with dual 500W motors, the Widewheel Pro means business. These bad boys put out a generous helping of torque which makes cruising up 30% inclines a breeze. They’ll allow you to reach a top speed of 26 mph so you can trade the bike lane for faster roads. Even better, the added power means that this scooter has some fairly rapid acceleration on offer. You won’t ever have to worry about pulling away quickly because this scooter has the means to get you ahead of the crowd without breaking a sweat.
So, what does this have to do with the wheels? Well, quite a lot. The WideWheel Pro comes with tires that are 8 inches high, which is pretty standard for the majority of electric scooters. However, not many models feature wheels that are almost 4 inches wide. The only other scooter that can get close to this is the fearsome (and very expensive) Dualtron Compact.
Bigger wheels have a larger contact patch, so they provide increased traction and a more balanced ride which is especially important when choosing a dual-motor scooter that can bring some power to the party. It also means this scooter has a particularly unique ride quality: you’ll feel like you’re floating over the city sidewalks rather than riding. This is pretty fun but it does take some time to adjust. As a result, I’d advise familiarising yourself with the way this scooter handles before ramping up the power and hitting that throttle for maximum speed output.
The tires on the Widewheel Pro also work hard to keep you comfortable during your rides. Unlike standard solid tires, they’re filled with polyurethane foam that makes them softer and more malleable whilst still maintaining their flat-resistant design. They don’t provide as much shock absorption as pneumatics, but this doesn’t matter too much because they’re supported by front and rear spring suspension. This combination will keep you nice and comfortable on the majority of urban terrain, protecting your joints even when riding in the fastest setting.
Each wheel also comes equipped with a disc brake, meaning that pressure is applied to both tires when you need to bring yourself to a stop. This results in reduced braking distances so you can rest assured that you’ll be able to come to a halt when you need to, even if you’re riding in the fastest gear. The width of the tires also helps here — the added traction plays a part in helping you slow down, counteracting the added power from the second motor.
Like the wheels, the rest of the Widewheel Pro has been designed to handle the rigors of dual-motor riding. As a result, it has a sturdy stem and a reinforced frame for extra durability. However, this does mean it’s on the heavier side, weighing in at 54 lbs. This might cause some problems if you want to use your scooter for commuting or need to take it on public transport. On the bright side, though, it comes with folding handlebars which make it very compact when collapsed. You’ll be able to easily store it out of sight when you reach your destination.
The Widewheel Pro has a maximum range of 30 miles which is ideal for leisure riders or those with a medium-length commute. However, you’re only going to get 30 miles from this beast if don’t put the pedal to the metal. Realistically, if you rip the motor and enjoy riding fast, you can expect between 20 and 22 miles.
It has a comparatively long recharge time of 8 hours, but this shouldn’t be too problematic if you plan to charge it overnight. You can keep an eye on your battery from the smart display on the handlebars, which also shows your current speed.
The display also allows you to flick between the different gears with the push of a button. The Widewheel Pro has two different settings: eco and power mode. The former will allow you to conserve battery and extend your range whilst the latter unlocks maximum torque and speed for an extra thrilling ride. You can also initiate cruise control when you want to relax and enjoy the ride. Alongside this, you’ll also find controls for the bright front and rear lights, both of which are up to the task of illuminating even the darkest of nights.
Here's the rear taillight:
The Widewheel Pro boasts a unique design and it looks good doing it. You might buy a scooter to get you from A to B, but the Pro will make you want to stay out on the road, exploring your city streets for hours at a time. Simply put, it’s a fun scooter that’s capable of delivering a thrilling ride thanks to the dual motors and sturdy build quality. It’ll cost you $1,269, but if you want big tires and a powerful ride, it’s excellent value for money, especially considering the only other scooter on this list that can rival the Pro’s wheel width is almost $6,000.
Looking for a scooter that has the capability and power to venture outside of your urban comfort zone? The Apollo Pro 52V is the ideal machine to bridge the gap between city riding and wilderness adventures. In terms of motor power, this is a serious step-up from the likes of the Widewheel Pro and the Unagi Model One, bringing you further into the realm of top performance scooters.
If you’re after rapid acceleration and muscular torque, the Pro 52V won’t disappoint. This bad boy can reach a top speed of 38 mph and features dual 1000W motors, each with a peak output of 1200W. Overall, that’s 2400W of power, over double that offered by the Widewheel Pro. It’s no wonder this scooter can storm its way up 40% inclines and go from 0-30 mph in just 6.2 seconds.
Scooters that can put out this much power need a set of equally beefy brakes to bring you to a stop. The 52V comes equipped with dual cable disc brakes and an electric regenerative brake, all of which do a decent job of slowing you down when you need to come to a halt. However, they aren’t as efficient as hydraulics, which would reduce braking distance down to a mere 5 meters. Apollo offers the option to upgrade to a hydraulic brake system for an extra $150 and if you can afford to stretch your budget to do this, I’d recommend it.
With so much power on offer, you might imagine the Pro 52V to be a hulking tank of a scooter, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This machine is about both beauty and brains, with a sleek and agile aesthetic that practically breathes effortless cool. Its black frame is accented with electric-blue and trimmed with vibrant red detailing, the stem arching over the front wheel in an almost insectoid way — a praying mantis poised to leap forward into action. This scooter is pretty darn nice to look at.
It’ll certainly turn heads when you’re out and about, especially as it has a maximum range of 56 miles, giving you plenty of time to show it off. However, it is worth noting that you’ll only see this kind of mileage when in eco or single-mode. If you’re planning to ride in the dual-motor or turbo settings, this will be significantly less, reducing down to 25 miles for the most aggressive rides. With a regular charger, you’ll be able to recharge the 52V in 10 hours, but if you choose to invest in a fast charger, this shrinks down to a pretty impressive 5 hours.
Much of the Pro 52V’s appeal lies in the fact that it’s at home on both city streets and off-road trails. This is partly down to its sturdy build and the versatility that comes from having dual-motors but is also a result of the scooter’s tires and suspension. It features 10-inch pneumatic tires that allow it to roll over obstacles with ease whilst also absorbing the shocks from any sudden sharp bumps. Plus, they’re so tall that they give the foot deck great clearance which is vital if you’re planning on executing any daring jumps.
In addition, the Pro 52V comes with a front spring and rear hydraulic suspension, allowing the scooter to adjust to its environment. This makes it more than capable of dealing with rough terrain whilst keeping you balanced and protecting your joints from any strain.
Because it needs to be sturdy to withstand the knocks of off-road riding, the Pro 52V is a bit of a beast when it comes to weight, coming in at 77 lbs. This is also due to the larger motors, big battery, and beefy tires, all of which pile on the lbs. Besides, the 52V can support riders of up to 330 lbs, making it ideal for heavier riders.
Like all good electric scooters, the 52V features a handlebar display so users can monitor their riding stats in real-time as well as controlling their headlights and initiating cruise control. However, there’s more to this display than meets the eye: it also allows you a degree of customization. You can alter several settings, choosing between kick-and-go or zero-start, as well as swapping between imperial and metric measurements. This means that you can tweak the Pro 52V until it’s uniquely yours.
Costing $1,799, the Pro 52V is the best value scooter out of all of those in the Apollo Pro range and is ideal for riders looking to step into the world of high-performance machines. It allows riders to swap between city cruising and off-road thrill-rides with minimal fuss and its cool exterior is well-suited to both settings. Even better, Apollo offers some of the best post-purchase support and the 52V comes with a generous 24-month warranty.
When it comes to the world of high-performance scooters, there’s one brand that reigns supreme: Mini Motors USA. Creators of the much-coveted Dualtron series, Mini Motors is also responsible for bringing you the Speedway line. These scooters have all the power of a Dualtron machine but with added practicality and a much smaller price tag. The Speedway 5 is the range’s crowning glory and the only model to feature dual-motors.
There’s a lot to love about this scooter, but nothing more so than the combined 3600W power output that comes from the dual-motor drivetrain. This allows riders to reach a maximum speed of 40 mph which will see you easily keeping pace with inner-city traffic. The torque generated from this added boost of power is also responsible for making it a reliable hill-climber, fully able to maintain speed whilst riding up inclines with a 37% slope.
Like the majority of scooters that take their drivetrain from Mini Motors, the Speedway 5 delivers some whiplash-quick acceleration. Not only does this make for a heart-pumping thrill ride, but it’s also practically useful when you need to get ahead of the traffic or just want to feel the exhilarating power.
To balance out the extra power on offer and keep you safe, Mini Motors has equipped the Speedway 5 with dual disc brakes as well as a regenerative electric brake. This combination means you’ll have complete control over the scooter, even when speeding along at 40 mph. Reliable, consistent, and smooth, you’ll be able to come to a stop within seconds.
In terms of power, the Speedway 5 beats the Apollo Pro 52V, however, it’s limited in terms of where you should ride it. Whereas the 52V is a versatile machine that can handle both on and off-road environments, it’s clear that the Speedway 5 has been made for an urban setting. It features 10-inch tubeless tires that provide excellent shock absorption, but feature a slicker tread pattern. This means they won’t be able to grip as well on loose surfaces such as sand or mud. Instead, they enable you to max out the throttle and ride fast over smooth roads typically found within the city boundaries.
Having said that, the Speedway 5 is more than capable of taking on rough urban terrain. This is thanks to its front and rear hydraulic suspension which is some of the best on the market. Alongside the large wheels, this allows you to roll over obstacles with ease, absorbing any harsh impacts and protecting your knees and wrists from uncomfortable bumps. As a result, you can expect a smooth and soft ride, allowing you to focus on maintaining your top speed.
Featuring an aerodynamic silhouette, the Speedway 5 has been built to maximize speed and withstand the rigors of aggressive daily riding. As a result, it features a reinforced frame and a roomy deck for maximum durability and comfort. Although it can’t take as large a load as the Apollo Pro, it’s capable of supporting up to 265 lbs, making it a good choice for heavier riders.
Because of this and the added bulk from the motors and battery, the Speedway 5 weighs 70 lbs, which means it certainly doesn’t qualify as an easily portable scooter. However, it’s much lighter than the likes of the Dualtron X, whilst still delivering the pedigree associated with Mini Motors scooters. It also collapses easily and compactly thanks to its foldable handlebars — although lifting it might require some effort, storing it out of sight will be a breeze.
Hopefully, because of the massive range this scooter offers, you won’t be required to carry it around very often. Featuring a high-performance 1385Wh Li-ion battery pack, the Speedway 5 can reach a maximum mileage of 75 miles (although you’re likely to see less than this if you’re a particularly aggressive rider). With this range, you’ll be able to explore for hours on end, and when it comes to recharging, you’ll only have to wait 4 hours if you purchase the fast charger. If you opt to stick with the slower standard charger, your wait time will increase to 13 hours.
The impressive drive train and expansive range are not the only things the Speedway 5 has inherited from its Dualtron cousins — it also features the same EYE throttle display. This is a convenient hub to store your ride data, allowing you to keep an eye on your speed and battery whilst you’re on the go. The trigger throttle can be a bit uncomfortable on the fingers when you’re riding for a long time, but using the cruise control function will allow you to enjoy your ride without getting cramp.
Alongside the display, you’ll also be able to operate and customize your lights. Trust me, if there’s one thing this scooter isn’t lacking, it’s lighting. It features a powerful headlight in addition to side and tail lights. It also comes with turn signals which are pretty rare to see on a scooter but, in my book, are vital for safe riding. As if this weren’t enough, it also features a quirky LED light that projects in the shape of the logo — this doesn’t do much in the way of improving visibility, but the rest of the set up takes care of that whilst this adds a touch of fun most performance scooters are missing.
If you’re looking for a fast, high-performance scooter, the Speedway 5 is an excellent choice. It delivers a riding experience that is consistent with the Mini Motors USA reputation, but at $2,100, it’s much cheaper than some of the other beast scooters this brand offers. In addition to being kinder on the wallet, it’s also a bit more practical when compared alongside something like the Dualtron III or X, and is ideally suited to fast-paced commutes or casual city exploration. This is a scooter that deserves its reputation as a reliable but exciting powerhouse.
How about a machine with a motorcycle vibe and a name that matches up to its badass aesthetic? Get ready to drool over the beast that is the Wolf Warrior. Comparable to the Dualtron X is almost everything but the price, this bad boy is an off-road hero and can deliver an insane amount of power through its impressive drivetrain.
Although it’s branded as a Kaboo scooter, the Wolf Warrior takes its innards from the market-leading Mini Motors USA. Its 2400W dual-motors have a peak power of 5400W which translates into a stunning top speed of 50 mph. When you experience the insane acceleration it offers, you’ll be itching to get out on the road and ride it again, and again, and again. The Wolf Warrior needs no encouragement on that front — the throttle is so sensitive even the slightest twitch will have it jumping out from underneath you.
Not only does the power of its dual-motors amp up the speed, but it also puts out some phenomenal torque, allowing you to maintain speed up 30% inclines as easily as you would when riding on the flat. This also makes it one of the best choices on the market if you’re looking for a scooter for off-roading. The Wolf Warrior has what it takes to tackle even the most unpredictable terrain.
The entirety of this scooter’s design has been tailored towards off-road riding. Its beefy frame is reinforced in all the right places so it can support a load of 330 lbs and the roomy deck provides ample ground clearance when you’re out on the trails or scaling mountainous paths. In addition, it features a superior suspension system consisting of front hydraulic and rear spring shocks. Because of this, it absorbs impact effortlessly, leaving you to focus on enjoying the thrill of the ride.
If you’re planning to use your Wolf Warrior as a predominantly off-road scooter, you have the option to purchase it with knobby tires that will be fitted before it arrives at your door. These are ideal for generating more traction when riding on loose surfaces typically found off-road and will keep you balanced and safe. If you’re going to be spending more time riding in the city, you’ll want to opt for slick tires instead. These will help you pick up pace faster when riding on smooth surfaces like asphalt or tarmac.
Whichever tires you go for, both options measure 11-inches, meaning they’re extra-large for a plush, comfortable ride. They also feature a tubeless design which makes them longer-lasting and more durable. This is because most flats occur when the inner tire pops, so by removing this, you’re left with a sturdier, thicker rubber outer that can withstand a bit more wear and tear. This’ll prove handy whether you’re braving glass-strewn city streets or heading out on sharp, rocky paths.
Because the Wolf Warrior is so powerful it’s especially important that it comes with equally beefy brakes to keep you safe and help you control your ride. Unsurprisingly, Kaboo has paid particular attention to this element of the scooter, fitting it with dual hydraulic brakes which, in my opinion, are the best you can get. They’re efficient, reliable, and will slow you down with even the slightest pressure.
Suffice to say, the Wolf Warrior is one pretty insane speed machine and you’re going to want to spend hours on it, feeling out just how much it can do. Luckily, its massive 35Ah LG battery can last for up to 70 miles when ridden conservatively in single-motor or eco mode. If you have both motors enabled, you’ll see less than this but it’ll still give you around 40-50 miles to play with. Plus, it has a recharge time of 8 hours which is pretty sweet considering the mileage it’s able to put out.
You can keep an eye on your battery and range from the EYE controller on the handlebars. If this looks familiar, it’s because these are a firm favorite of Mini Motors USA, and so can be found on the likes of the Speedway 5 and Dualtron models. Alongside this, you’ll find a loud horn as well as buttons for the lights and power.
Speaking of lights, the Wolf Warrior has everything you need to ride safely at night. Its two massive headlights are capable of lighting up the night, whilst the side deck, ground effects, and giant rear light increase your visibility from all angles. Not even the darkest of nights can intimidate this scooter.
If you’ve got this far and you’re thinking that the Wolf Warrior might be for you, there’s just one drawback I have to mention: this scooter is heavy. Weighing 101 lbs, this isn’t a machine you’re going to be able to lift and maneuver easily. This being said, it isn’t your run-of-the-mill scooter, and so will appeal more to serious enthusiasts or off-roaders who will be using it for a specific purpose. It hasn’t been designed to tackle the daily commute and ride with you on the subway. As a result, the added weight might not matter much because of the power you get from those two massive motors — the trade-off seems worth it.
This is especially true when you consider that this bad boy has an insanely reasonable price tag of $2,799. Comparable scooters retail closer to $6,000, making the Wolf Warrior exceptionally good value for money. Not only that but it delivers a heart-stopping thrill ride sure to satisfy even the most extreme adrenaline junkies. This is the ultimate off-road scooter and once you’ve tried it out, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
You can’t have a list of the best dual-motor electric scooters without including at least one entry from the infamous Dualtron range. Luckily for you, I’m going to be taking a closer look at two of the best, the first of which is the off-road sensation, the Dualtron Ultra.
Like all scooters from Mini Motors USA, this bad boy pulls no punches when it comes to power, matching the Wolf Warrior’s ferocious 5400W output. In real terms, this means you’ll be able to reach a maximum speed of 50 mph, which is more than fast enough to make your eyes water and get your blood pumping. This baby is so powerful, it even features specifically-designed heat sinks to stop the motors from overheating, keeping performance at an optimal level throughout the scooter’s lifespan.
Unsurprisingly, with this much power behind it, the acceleration and torque on the Ultra are no joke. There’s no chance that something as trivial as a little hill will daunt this beast. It’ll be able to handle slopes up to 47%, maintaining its charge to the top and onwards. If you do take it out on the road, once you let loose on that throttle, you’ll be more than capable of matching fast-moving traffic, although you will need to purchase additional road tires for the best riding conditions on slick tarmac. (I do need to say, though, that I don’t recommend trying to match fast-moving traffic.)
That’s because the Ultra is, at its very heart, an off-road scooter. In many ways, it’s quite similar to the Wolf Warrior, but this beast comes with knobby tires as standard, rather than offering users a choice. As I’ve mentioned before, these kinds of wheels are ideal for off-roading because the textured surface doesn’t need to work so hard to gain traction on loose or unreliable surfaces like sand or rocks.
They’re extra-large too, measuring 11 by 3.5 inches. This provides a more stable base for riders, keeping them balanced on uneven surfaces and distributing impact vibrations equally. Because they’re tubeless, the Ultra’s tires are particularly good at this, but they don’t do the job on their own. The Ultra maximizes user comfort with the additional help of its exceptional front and rear suspension system which assists the wheels in absorbing vibrations.
One of this scooter’s strengths is that it can keep going for miles on end. Thanks to the immense power of the motors and the huge 32Ah LG battery, the Ultra has a maximum range of 75 miles. Aggressive riders will see closer to 40-50 miles but that still gives you plenty of time to race along off-road trails and scale rocky inclines. Charging times will depend on the kind of charger you opt for, with a standard charger taking a pretty hefty 20 hours, whilst the fast charger reduces this to a mere 5.3 hours.
Although raw dual-motor power might get your blood pumping, it’s important to make sure that your scooter’s safety features are up to scratch too. As purveyors of the fast and furious, Dualtron knows this better than most which is why the Ultra is equipped with top-quality front and rear disc brakes, as well as optional ABS. As a result, you can guarantee you’ll always have full control over your scooter’s speed and can stop when you need to.
As with any dual-motor scooter, construction is key. The Ultra features a reinforced body made from an aviation-grade aluminum alloy that is capable of supporting riders up to 265 lbs. Additionally, the stem has been thickened with a 3.5 mm sleeve to keep it strong when performing daring jumps. It’s clear to see that the Ultra has been designed with care, allowing it to withstand the trials of riding off-road at extreme speeds.
Because of its more robust build, it’s no surprise that the Ultra is packing some serious bulk, weighing 81 lbs. This scooter has many strengths, but portability isn’t one of them. However, as I’ve mentioned before, off-road scooters aren’t machines you’re likely to have to carry around often. Plus, if you found the gargantuan weight of the Wolf Warrior a bit daunting, this is a great, slightly lighter alternative.
However, the Ultra is a bit heavier on your purse strings. It’ll set you back $3,149, which is $150 more than the Wolf Warrior. In all honesty, the Wolf Warrior is better value for money and has the advantage of being more versatile on-road, but the Ultra has the weight of the Dualtron name behind it. For many, this might be enough to excuse the additional cost.
If you’re in the market for an off-road beast, the Ultra is well worth your consideration. It delivers on speed, range, and function, living up to the Dualtron hype in all areas. This scooter is a lot of fun and it’s perfect for extreme riders looking for something to match their thrill-seeking appetites.
If you’re looking for something that’s more motorcycle than scooter, something pulsing with raw undiluted power, something that makes scooter enthusiasts worldwide salivate at the mere mention of its name, there’s only one machine for the job: the Dualtron X. This scooter drags us firmly into extreme territory because let me assure you, it does nothing by halves.
This scooter is a bonafide maestro of speed and power, and it all comes from its insanely large BLDH hub motors which put out a hair-raising 6720W of max power. If we boil that down, it means you’ll be able to reach a top speed of 55 mph. This is one of the fastest scooters I’ve ever reviewed and showcases just how far scooter tech has come since 20 mph was considered ‘extreme’.
There’s no other scooter on this list that accelerates quite like the X. Its pickup rate is staggering and if you’ve got even an inch of speed fiend about you, once you’ve had a go on this bad boy, no other scooter will compare. The torque it puts out is equally ferocious and makes it capable of scaling hills of around 70%. This means that even the steepest of cities (San Fran I’m looking at you) won’t stand a chance when this beast has the wind in its wings.
When you’re dealing with a scooter that can go as fast as this one, you need to be sure you can slow down just as quickly. Thankfully, Mini Motors prioritizes safety just as much as it does speed. The X is fitted with dual hydraulic disc brakes, with optional ABS. These are, in my opinion, the best brakes you can get and they deliver a very smooth and precise braking experience. No matter how fast you’re going, you’ll always feel like you’re in control and able to come to a stop with even the slightest pressure on the hand levers.
The construction on the X is as close to bombproof as you can get to cope with its dual-motor power. This scooter is all about chunky components that make it feel stylishly oversized, rather than clumsy and clunky. The stem is thick and boxy whilst the deck is roomy enough to provide excellent balance whilst still allowing riders to adopt a natural standing pose. Overall, the build quality is tough and robust, keeping riders up to 265 lbs safe.
The tires, measuring an immense 13 by 4 inches, are some of the largest on offer. Their advantage lies in the fact that they can take on any road obstacle, absorbing impacts and rolling effortlessly over potholes of all shapes and sizes. The bigger tires will take a while to adjust to — similarly to those on the Widewheel Pro. Turning might feel more cumbersome, but once you’ve dealt with this learning curve, it won't be hard to appreciate the smooth, floating sensation that the X evokes.
Its comfortable ride also comes down to its incredible suspension. It’s equipped with dual coil-over hydraulic shocks that adjust to your environment, alternating between soft as stiff as needed. It also features an innovative adjustable steering damper. This kind of thing is more commonly found on motorcycles but works well for a high-speed machine like the X, stabilizing the stem and handlebars and preventing them from wobbling when you hit that optimum 55 mph.
To deal with the potential of its two monster motors, the X features a staggering 60V 49Ah battery pack, containing LG cells. This promises an almost inconceivable maximum range of 93 miles which is phenomenal when compared to some of the cheaper dual-motor options. As with all scooters, aggressive riding will reduce this, but you can still expect to be able to spend hours out and about before you need to think about plugging in. The best part? When you do have to recharge, a fast charger will get you back out on the road in just 7.5 hours.
In terms of cockpit setup, the Dualtron features the ever-popular EYE display, allowing you to keep an eye on your key riding stats with a single glance, as well as customize ride performance. It also comes with one of my favorite security features — a fingerprint reader, allowing riders to unlock their scooter.
The X is one of the most well-lit scooters I’ve reviewed, featuring a firework display of lighting to keep you safe when riding at night. The ultra-bright headlight cuts through thick darkness, whilst the swag lights and the rear lights increase your visibility to other road users. It comes with turn signals, too. As I’ve mentioned previously, these are rare to see on scooters, but a big advantage when navigating busy roads.
This scooter is an absolute dream, but it does come with some drawbacks. The first of these is its immense bulk. This tank of a machine weighs 145 lbs, which is roughly the same as an adult cougar. Trust me, it is not easy to lift and the chances are, you’re going to need help.
Secondly, it’s not a scooter for the inexperienced or faint-hearted. The top speed alone will require a practiced hand to control it, and that’s without mentioning its unique handling thanks to the massive wheels. This is even further reinforced by the fact that the X costs a staggering $5,999. The chances are, you’ll only want to spend this much money if you’re a serious enthusiast looking to upgrade your extreme scooter game significantly.
Simply put, the X is a one-of-a-kind machine. The sheer power it puts out makes it extremely covetable. If you’re an experienced rider and want to reach the dizzying heights of ultra-performance electric scooters, there is no other scooter that can rival the X in terms of speed, power, range, and badass attitude.
