Looking for a high-speed scooter that can hit 60 mph?
What about 65 mph?
Or even… 70 mph?
That’s right, you didn’t misread that.
It doesn’t seem like so long ago that a 20 mph scooter was considered extreme. Nowadays, this kind of maximum speed is relegated to the commuter bracket whilst high-speed performance machines can hit staggering speeds more commonly associated with motorcycles. That’s fast enough to get the blood of even the most dedicated thrillseekers thrumming.
If you’ve found your way to this page, it’s likely that you’re already a self-confessed adrenaline junkie and speed addict, and you’re looking for your next big investment to bring the thrill. Below are three scooters that break all the rules and stretch the boundaries.
It’s worth noting that these machines have all been designed with experienced riders in mind. If you’re new to the electric scooter game, it’s smart to start with a slower model before working your way up to something that can hit these kinds of speeds.
Dualtron X 2
The biggest and baddest Dualtron scooter to date, the X 2 takes everything you loved about the X and dials it up. With a top speed of 68 mph, this is the fastest scooter on the market, delivering eye-watering acceleration and torque. This is the ideal extreme scooter for experienced riders and showcases the staggering advancement of
electric scooter tech — which is the reason it costs so much.
Dualtron Ultra 2
The ultimate high-speed, off-road machine, the Dualtron Ultra 2 is the king of the adrenaline rush. It can reach speeds of up to 62 mph and is purpose-built to withstand the rigours of extreme off-road riding. If this kind of ride is what you’re after, the Ultra 2 is an absolute must.
Fast, powerful, and convenient — the Dualtron Storm is unlike any other scooter made by Mini Motors USA thanks to its detachable battery. This makes it an altogether more practical option without compromising its top-quality performance. It’s perfect for speed fiends looking for a road-ready racing scooter.

If you’re on the hunt for a scooter that can put out some extreme speed, and you’ve always coveted the extreme Dualtron X, get ready to hit new levels of excitement. There’s a new Dualtron in town and it successfully steals the crown for the fastest and most radical scooter of all. Introducing: the Dualtron X 2.
The Beast is Back. Feast Your Eyes on the Dualtron X 2
See what this beast has to offer in the looks department.
As the name indicates, the X 2 takes many of its impressive stats from its younger brother, the X, but with a few crucial differences. The most important of these is the drastic increase in speed. The X2 can reach an almost incomprehensible top speed of 68 mph. This is down to its enormous 8300W hub motors which give it the means to deliver heart-stopping acceleration and tremendously powerful torque.
This also means that the X 2 is the undisputed king of hill climbs. It can triumph over hills with a 70% gradability. To put this in context, the steepest street in San Francisco has an incline of 27% — the X 2 could breeze up this without even breaking a sweat. There are very few inclines out there that this scooter couldn’t handle.
With its top speed of 70 mph, the X 2 should be classed as a motorcycle rather than an electric scooter, so a reliable set of brakes is a must. Luckily, the X 2 ticks that box, boasting dual hydraulic brakes with optional ABS. These are the best brakes on the market and will be extremely sensitive to even the slightest pressure. You can trust that they’ll respond when you need them to, slowing you down smoothly and consistently.
Another big difference between the original X and the X 2 is the new and improved 19-step suspension system.
What is that, you might ask? It’s a highly intuitive hydraulic system that allows for intensity adjustments to suit your riding requirements. When it comes to suspension, one size does not fit all. A stiffer suspension is better for smooth roads and fast speeds, whereas a softer setup gives better comfort and traction when riding across bumps and depressions. With the X 2’s 19-step system, you won’t be limited to the terrain you can handle, but can adjust your scooter to your preferred settings as and when necessary.
This system is made all the more successful by the X 2’s massive 13-inch pneumatic tyres. These are the same as those seen on the X, delivering excellent shock absorption and a balanced, plush ride. Their large size will take some time to get used to and you won’t be able to perform any sharp or drastic manoeuvres, but once you get the hang of it, the floating ride quality will quickly become one of your favourite things about this scooter.
It’ll especially come in handy if you decide to take your X 2 on an extended ride. With its enormous LG battery, this scooter is powerful enough that it can support its massive motors and keep going for up to 93 miles. However, it is worth noting that if you ride in the dual-motor or pro setting, the maximum range will be far less (55-60 miles), whereas opting for eco mode will extend this. The EYE controller and battery voltage meter both allow you to keep an eye on your battery level (and speed) but when you do need to top up that power bar, expect to wait around 25 hours with a single charger, 12 hours with 2 chargers, or 8 hours with the fast charger.
Here's a photo of the scooter's controls, including the turn signals:
Thankfully, the X 2 channels the same brutal, chunky exterior as the original X. This is just as much a functional feature as an aesthetic one, because the bulky frame and sturdy construction make it able to withstand the pressures of high-speed riding. It’s also been designed to support a bigger payload than its younger brother and can carry up to 150 kg. This means it’s an ideal choice for heavier riders.
Unsurprisingly, the combination of two huge motors, a massive battery, and a super chunky frame doesn’t make for a lightweight scooter. In fact, at 66 kg, the X 2 is the heaviest scooter I’ve reviewed and weighs almost the same as an adult mountain lion. Although it’s not designed to be lifted or carried easily, it does collapse down and has foldable handlebars to make it slightly easier to store.
There’s a strong chance you’ll find yourself riding the X 2 after sunset, so you'll be glad to know that this monster scooter has been equipped with a plethora of lighting options. It features dual front LED headlights as well as an illuminated LED neck, side deck lights, bottom ambient lighting, and a taillight that also acts as a brake light. Not only that, but it also comes with turn signals which are vital to letting other road users know where you plan on turning. Unlike the X, the lights on the X2 are fully customizable, so you can choose between a red, green, or blue colour scheme.
Here's what the headlight looks like when it's turned on:
Given that the standard X costs almost £5,000, it’s no surprise that the X2 will set you back a pretty penny. It retails at £5,599, which is way outside of most casual scooterists’ budgets. This is probably just as well because the power on this scooter means that it’s better left to more experienced riders who can deal with its motorcycle-like quirks and features.
If you have the budget to burn and you’re looking to place yourself at the forefront of cutting-edge scooter technology, the Dualtron X 2 is a machine you won’t want to miss out on. With unparalleled speed and power, this scooter is the stuff of dreams.
An Overview of the Dualtron X 2
From close-ups of the frame to talking through the features, see what the Dualtron X 2 has to offer.
If you’re looking for an off-road beast that can break through the 60 mph speed barrier, there’s only one contender in the mix: the brand-new Dualtron Ultra 2. This scooter is made for riders who plan to spend all of their riding time surfing dirt tracks and mountainous paths.
The Ultra 2 is the successor to the much-loved Dualtron Ultra and is the answer to off-road enthusiasts’ prayers. It’s got everything you could want for an out-of-this-world off-road experience but with bigger motors and — you guessed it — a much higher maximum speed limit.
The Ultra 2 can reach up to 62 mph and puts out an enormous 6640W of peak power. That’s more speed and power than you’ll find on the Dualtron X, the former crowning glory of this extreme scooter range. The Ultra 2’s improved performance also means it’s exceptionally quick to accelerate and its supersized torque output makes sure that even 35-degree slopes won’t stand a chance.
The original Ultra came with specially designed heat sinks to maintain optimum conditions for the motors and its big brother features the same controllers. However, they’ve been relocated to the rear of the scooter. This allows for better heat management and water resistance, extending the lifetime of your motors even further. It also guarantees that your Ultra 2 will always be able to ride at the peak of its performance no matter where you are.
This is pretty handy for an off-road scooter because it’ll have to constantly work to push you up and over rugged terrain. But this isn’t the only thing that makes the Ultra 2 the perfect off-road companion. It also comes pre-fitted with 11-inch knobby off-road tyres that are perfect for increasing your traction on loose surfaces like sand and dirt. The added texture and large size mean you’ll feel a noticeable difference in your grip and balance, especially when riding at top speeds.
The Ultra 2 is also equipped with a thorough dual suspension system, featuring 5 stages of adjustment in the rear to help your scooter absorb the impact from punishing hits or jumps. The various levels also mean that you’ll be able to tweak the Ultra 2 to your preferences, choosing the setting that’s better suited to your terrain of choice.
Brakes are important on all scooters, but especially on high-speed off-road beasts where thrill and adrenaline are the order of the day. The Ultra 2 is fitted with dual hydraulic brakes and optional ABS. Having a brake on both wheels is vital to achieving the responsive and consistent stopping power you want on a scooter like this and will help to keep you safe when rocketing along rough and uneven paths.
There’s no use investing in an off-road scooter if it doesn’t have the range to keep you out on the tracks for long periods. Luckily, the Ultra 2 comes with a new, large 72V LG battery. This helps to power its huge motors but also means it can keep going for a maximum of 87 miles on a single charge. This is thanks to the quality that comes with a battery from such a renowned manufacturer. As with all electric scooters, the more aggressively you ride, the less mileage you get. Realistically, if you push this beast to its limits, you can expect 52-55 miles.
The Ultra 2 sets out to be the king of off-road scooters and that’s reflected in its construction and build quality. This guy is sturdy, although not quite as bulky as the X or X 2. It’s made from aviation-grade aluminium alloy and is reinforced in all the right places, able to withstand the abuse meted out by off-road terrain. It’s able to support a larger payload of 150 kg too, which is 30 kg more than its predecessor.
The Ultra 2 also boasts an upgraded lighting system and control module. The former means that it now comes with flashing LED lights along the deck and stem, in addition to the dual front headlight, rear light, and brake lights. The new and improved controller is separate from the traditional EYE display and allows users to operate hazard lights as well as switching between eco and turbo mode.
Like most extreme Dualtron scooters, the Ultra 2 is not a lightweight machine, however, it’s lighter than the X 2, weighing 39.9 kg. Still, this isn’t a scooter you’re going to be carrying around. This is best transported in the back of a pickup truck or ridden right from your doorstep. On the bright side, it does come with foldable handlebars and a collapsible stem for easier storage.
At £3,350, the Ultra 2 is £1,267 more than the Ultra, but if high speed is top of your priority list, the extra pounds are worth it. This scooter is a must for any enthusiast who wants to take their riding to the next level and get serious about off-roading. The Dualtron pedigree and most recent upgrades will shine through in the quality the Ultra 2 has to offer.
An Overview of the Dualtron Ultra 2
Discover what this off-road monster has to offer.
Are you ready to take your first step and invest in the big, bad world of extreme performance scooters but aren’t quite prepared for the commitment of lugging around a hefty, cumbersome machine? I might just have the answer for you: The all-new Dualtron Storm. This is one hotly anticipated scooter and for some very good reasons.
Unleash the City Slicking Beast: The Dualtron Storm Has Arrived
With an aggressive aesthetic, ferocious acceleration curve, and supersized torque, see the Dualtron Storm in action.
On the surface, the Storm looks like any other Dualtron scooter and delivers the same fast and furious speeds as its family members. Similar to the Ultra 2, it comes with 6640W motors that translate to a top speed of 62 mph. The motor design is slightly different, however, but that doesn’t impact its performance. If anything, it improves it by allowing it to put out much faster torque that results in an unbelievably rapid acceleration curve.
Like other scooters of this pedigree, it’s a bona fide hill-climbing champion. The power it delivers means that it can scale 35-degree inclines with little difficulty, especially when in turbo mode. Even better, it’ll be able to maintain top speeds up the majority of inclines. It also comes with the same heat sink and waterproof controller combination as seen on the Ultra 2, keeping your motors healthy even when they’re working at their peak capacity.
To counterbalance the insane speed and torque of the Storm, it comes equipped with dual hydraulic brakes and optional ABS. This gives you complete control over your speed. The brake levers will be incredibly sensitive, tuned to keep you safe with the slightest twitch of your fingers.
So, what sets it apart from its Dualtron siblings? Well, the Storm is the only scooter in the Dualtron range to come with detachable batteries. The advantage of this lies in your ability to remove the battery for charging whilst your scooter is parked safely elsewhere.
This is especially handy considering the Storm weighs 45.8 kg so you won’t need to worry about lugging it up multiple staircases to charge it. Simply use the key to unlock the battery from the deck and lift using the integrated handle. When replacing it, you might find it a bit fiddly to arrange the wires so that the battery sits flat but this is a minor gripe considering the convenience this new feature offers.
The new design also doesn’t affect the quality of the battery. Dualtron has stuck with their favoured LG 72V unit which delivers between 68 and 80 miles depending on how aggressively you ride. This gives you plenty of range to enjoy the adrenaline-inducing speed this scooter offers.
Like other Dualtron models, the Storm comes with large, tubeless, pneumatic tyres, measuring 11 inches. These help to keep you balanced and stable when riding at high speeds, whilst providing good shock absorption against surface imperfections. They also feature a slicker tread, which generates more traction on smooth roads than the knobby tyres found on the Ultra 2.
The Storm has been fitted with a rubber suspension system, operated by the use of 5 different interchangeable rubber cartridges. This is an innovative method of suspension that’s unique to Dualtron. Each of the cartridges determines the level of softness or stiffness in your suspension. That way, you can choose your poison and tailor your ride to your preferences and environment.
To help you to keep an eye on both your battery and speed, the Storm comes with an EYE throttle display and voltage meter, as well as a new handlebar controller.
From here you can switch between eco and power mode as well as operate the scooter’s loud horn. You’ll also find buttons to operate the additional hazards and turn signals. Other lights on the Storm include a super-bright LED headlight, dual rear lights, and stem and deck lights.
As I previously mentioned, the Storm isn’t a light scooter. It weighs 45.8 kg, which is comparable to the Wolf Warrior, but with a higher maximum speed and longer range. Although you won’t be taking this baby on public transport with you, it can be folded for storage, its foldable handlebars making it easier to tuck away if you’re short on space.
The Dualtron Storm is a perfect marriage of raw power and practical convenience. Its removable battery makes it a more realistic option for those who don’t have the space to store a charging scooter of this size. At £3,720, it’s not cheap but this kind of investment will get you a machine that doesn’t hold back when it comes to speed and power. It’s perfect for riders that want a drag-race winning scooter.
