Why I Recommend the Turboant X7 Max as the Best Budget Scooter:

Turboant is a brand that consistently pushes the envelope with what’s possible from budget scooters, and the X7 Max – a deserved winner of an Electric Scooter Insider award for 2023/24 – is perhaps the purest distillation of what these guys are all about. They listen to customer feedback, apply the recommendations shared, and release new scooters that better what came before them in every conceivable way.

Josh Testing the Turboant X7 Max

Building on the legacy that found its roots in the hugely popular X7 Pro, the Max features the same removable battery – yet this time, there is enhanced drivetrain hardware and software, which facilitates greater efficiency and marginally extends its range.

Turboant X7 Max Battery Being Removed

Armed with this bad boy, you can feasibly double or triple your nominal 32-mile maximum range with the purchase of spares. However, as with all electric scooters, it’s important to note that you can only achieve this mileage if you stick to best-case riding conditions, which consist of a rider weighing no more than 165 lbs, flat terrain, and keeping below 15 mph. My tests, on the other hand, are designed to push electric scooters to their real-world limit by riding them across undulating environments with periods of fast acceleration, cruising, and multiple stops. Here, the X7 Max clocked 18 miles.

Turboant X7 Max Sleek Chassis

It isn’t all about its removable battery pack, though. For starters, there’s its spirited 36V 350W motor, which powers it to a top speed of 20 mph – this is more than enough oomph for everyday journeys. Its acceleration rate of 0-15 mph in 6.9 seconds, meanwhile, is a whole 14% zippier than its close competitor, the GoTrax GMAX Ultra.

Turboant X7 Max Motor

And fear not, when it comes to safety amidst the hustle and bustle, the rear disc and the front electronic brake will bring you to a controlled stop in 3.0 meters from 15 mph.

Turboant X7 Max Brake Lever

With a scooter that offers such long range, comfort is key. The first thing to look at here is the handlebars. Whilst the X7 Pro’s were too low for riders over 6 feet, the Max addresses this flaw by raising them to 49.2 inches. The frame is also 2.7 inches longer, while the deck is bigger and better all around. Combined, these revamps significantly improve the X7 Max’s handling and control.

Turboant X7 Max Deck

Add to this the large 10-inch pneumatic tires, and it provides ample shock absorption for well-maintained city streets. The tires also come with thicker sidewalls this time around, offering better protection from pesky pinch flats.

Turboant X7 Max Tire Tread

Better still, the all-in-one thumb throttle lets you switch between three riding modes, while it also facilitates a comfortable position for long rides. In the making of this guide, I tested a total of 44 long-range electric scooters and found that scooters with thumb throttles had far better ergonomics than those with finger throttles. While testing the finger throttle variants, my hand and fingers would occasionally cramp as a result of having to adopt a claw-like position.

Finally, a 3W LED headlight and responsive taillight, illuminate you and the way ahead. However, after testing the X7 Max at night, I suggest investing in an extra clip-on headlight for enhanced visibility.

So, there you have it – the Turboant X7 Max. Is there a better budget long-range electric scooter? After testing 44 models, I’m yet to find one.

Why I Recommend the Turboant V8 as the Best Extendable Range Scooter:

Simply put, no other electric scooter offers what the Turboant V8 does. Let me explain.

Josh Testing the Turboant V8

Firstly, two 36V 7.5Ah batteries deliver a combined maximum range of 50 miles (or 25 miles when factoring in my real-world tests). Not bad for a scooter priced at under $750, right?

But here’s the clincher: the battery on the stem is detachable, meaning that the addition of spares can increase your range indefinitely.

Turboant V8 Removable Battery

Now, you may be asking why I recommend the V8 over the X7 Max since both feature swappable battery packs. To put it simply, the V8, as stock, comes with a total of 540Wh of power, while the X7 Max has just 360Wh (equating to a 50% increase).

Turboant M10 With X7 Max and V8

However, a one-trick pony, the V8 is not. This is a Turboant scooter, after all, so you can have faith in its dependability and resilience. Though it may not leave jaws on the floor when it comes to style and elegance, this is a model that’ll delight those looking for a safe and reliable set of wheels.

Turboant V8 Chassis From Rear

This quality is further strengthened by its tires, where you can choose those of either the pneumatic or honeycomb variety.

I tested the pneumatic variants and found that their 9.3-inch form – paired with the rear suspension – did a good job of soaking up the shocks and vibrations from city streets. Their rounded front-on profile and three-dimensional tread elevated the V8’s handling above the rest of its similarly-priced rivals, too.

Turboant V8 Motor

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to eliminate the risk of flats and are happy to sacrifice shock absorption, the solid rubber honeycomb tires are worth considering.

Another set of key features that aid the V8's credibility in the comfort and handling departments are its wide 19.9-inch handlebars, ergonomic thumb throttle, and well-balanced frame. Here, the distribution of weight across the stem and chassis immediately gave me a sense of stability that I didn’t get from other scooters. For example, while testing the Turboant X7 Max I noticed that it had a top-heavy design as a result of its stem-located battery. This made the chassis lighter than the stem, meaning less control.

Turboant V8 Thick Frame

This added stability proved useful when hitting the V8’s 20 mph top speed. Based on my tests, I reached 15 mph in 6.3 seconds, while the mechanical disc and electronic braking system brought me to a stop from 15 mph in 4.7 meters.

Turboant V8 Disc Brake

Safety is also assured in the lighting department. A 3W headlight, deck-embedded LEDs, and a smokey taillight ensure that you remain visible to others. Together, they make a strong case for being the best of all budget scooters.

Ultimately, if you’re searching for a workhorse with serious range potential, the Turboant V8 is a great choice.

Why I Recommend the SPLACH Mukuta as the Best Dual Motor Scooter:

Few scooters promise both impressive range and power within a budget that won’t leave your eyes watering. But, the SPLACH Mukuta doesn’t just tick each of these boxes – it brings extra charm to the party, too.

Josh Testing the SPLACH Mukuta

The product of a collaboration between industry nonconformists, SPLACH, and new kids on the block, Mukuta, this is a scooter that exists to push boundaries. Nowhere is this more evident than its detachable 48V 15.6Ah battery, which – get this – also serves as a mobile power bank.

SPLACH Mukuta Removable Battery Out of the Deck

So, not only do you get a maximum range of 39 miles (or 22 miles if you’re burning the asphalt), but also a unit that can charge your phone and laptop. You won’t find this feature on any other scooter.

SPLACH Mukuta Power Bank

Yet this alone doesn’t explain the Mukuta’s inclusion. It’s also one of the best dual-motor models that a tight budget can buy. Armed with two 48V 600W firecrackers, it produces a top speed of 28 mph. For context, it's only the Fluid Vista and SPLACH Titan that go faster when compared to similarly-priced models, yet both cost slightly more.

SPLACH Mukuta Accelerating

It’s also quick out of the blocks. While testing it, the satisfyingly ergonomic half-twist grip throttle propelled me from 0 to 15 mph in just 2.7 seconds. Factor in its peak power output of 2208W – which is enough chutzpah to conquer steep inclines of up to 22 degrees – and you have one heck of a bargain on your hands.

Josh Testing the SPLACH Mukuta

Thankfully, the Mukuta’s entire build is geared towards harnessing this power. Its expansive handlebars boast a swept-back design that ensures you feel stable and secure at high speeds. The stem is rock solid and the grippy deck is sufficiently spacious, too.

SPLACH Mukuta Cockpit

Then you have one of the Mukuta’s standout features: its dual disc and electronic braking system. Together, this triumvirate brought me to a sharp stop from 15 mph in just 2.1 meters.

SPLACH Mukuta Swingarm

As for ride quality, well, the first thing that I noticed was the solid tires. Usually, this means that you’re in for a bumpy ride; yet, so impressive was the adjustable front and rear suspension, that I barely detected a vibration cruising down the street. I’d go as far as to say that the Mukuta is one of the best solid tire models on the market.

SPLACH Mukuta Rear Motor and Fender

There’s also the fact that without the risk of punctures, it stands out as an extremely low-maintenance model, making it reliable for long rides. Plus, with an IP54 water-resistance rating and a well-equipped lighting rig – consisting of a headlight, stem strip, deck LEDs, and turn signals – it’s as well suited to inclement conditions as it is riding at night.

SPLACH Mukuta Lights With Turn Signals

But that’s not to say that it’s perfect. The tires sport a square front-on profile, meaning that you can feel them as they roll onto their edges when leaning into corners. You can carve from side to side, but you need to be careful when riding on loose or wet terrain.

Josh Riding the SPLACH Mukuta Fast

Another area of the Mukuta’s design worth mulling over is its slightly tacky chrome finishes in the cockpit. This, however, is more of an aesthetic gripe than a functional one. The toggles would be better if they gave more feedback, though.

SPLACH Mukuta Twist Throttle and Controls

With all things considered, the SPLACH Mukuta’s strengths far outweigh its weaknesses. Few scooters in its price category offer such satisfying rewards.

Why I Recommend the Fluid Vista as the Best Low Maintenance Scooter:

Before the Fluid Vista slid into the equation, finding a low-maintenance electric scooter that fused impressive range with comfort was the stuff of fantasy. Now, that’s all changed.

Josh Testing the Fluid Vista

Its hulking 60V 14.5Ah battery produces a maximum of 45 miles. Based on my grueling hands-on tests, however, I got 32 miles. During my tests, I weighed 190 lbs and rode the scooter around a circuit of undulating city streets. The riding conditions included periods of fast acceleration, cruising, and multiple stops. The temperature was 57.2 degrees Fahrenheit and the wind was 15.7 mph.

Fluid Vista in Motion

Its battery management system, meanwhile, ensures that the unit remains in good health by offering various types of protection.

Then there’s the solid 10-inch tires and full suspension system. The tires are impervious to punctures, while the front and rear springs neutralize nasty shocks and vibrations. I’m also pleased to report that there’s no bottoming out, meaning that the ride remains smooth without clanking – even over poor road conditions. The alchemy produced here is a win for both ride comfort and low-maintenance practicality.

Fluid Vista Solid Rubber Tire

As too, is the braking setup. At the front, you have a long-lasting drum brake, and at the rear, a responsive disc. They’re supported by a regen braking system that can be adjusted via the mobile app to suit your preferences. Together, with the regen brake on the highest setting, I came to a smooth stop from 15 mph in just 2.4 meters.

Fluid Vista Rear Disc Brake

Elsewhere, the rear-mounted 60V 1000W motor delivers a top speed of 31 mph and a peak power output of 1800W. Its acceleration from 0 to 15 mph in 3.2 seconds, and 0 to 25 mph in just 6.6 seconds is also competitive.

Fluid Vista Accelerating

A word of warning, however. The stem and handlebars are noticeably underweighted, which makes the steering column feel disarmingly erratic at faster speeds. The thumb throttle, meanwhile, is quite jerky, so you’ll want to go easy on it. My advice would be to take things slow until you’re comfortable with the Vista’s eccentricities.

Fluid Vista Cockpit

One other feature that you’ll need to get to grips with is the short deck. Despite being among the widest that I’ve tested, it offers up just 18 inches of usable space in length. By comparison, it's 5 inches shorter than its greatest rival – the EMOVE Cruiser S – and this can be felt when riding the scooter.

Fluid Vista Deck

Negatives aside, let’s focus again on the good stuff. The Vista is one of the best all-weather scooters on the market. Its IPX5 water resistance rating and long fenders protect the frame and you from water splashes, while the stat-heavy display is visible come rain or shine.

Fluid Vista Uniquely Shaped Display

As for its lighting rig, well, though the headlight could be a little brighter (I recommend buying an extra clip-on), the turn signals, array of deck LEDs, and smokey taillight are all welcome additions.

Fluid Vista Different Color Deck LEDs

The deck LEDs can be controlled via the mobile app, which also lets you alter the strength of your regen brake and acceleration, change the top speed of each riding mode, adjust the start function using a slider (or in other words, set the speed at which the motor kicks in), create a passcode, and remotely lock the scooter. It also gives you access to a host of stats and performance graphs.

Fluid Vista Folded

Despite its blemishes, this is a model that has changed the complexion of the commuter scooter category by bringing power, comfort, and reliability, all whilst being low-maintenance.

Why I Recommend the EMOVE Cruiser S as the Best For Overall Value:

Pound for pound, no other scooter offers more range than the EMOVE Cruiser S.

Josh Testing the EMOVE Cruiser S

But, more mileage means a higher price, right?

For the EMOVE Cruiser S, it doesn’t. Despite having a comparatively cheap price tag, a 52V 30Ah LG battery equips it with a 62-mile range that most can only dream of (or 48 miles when ridden fast). It’s a rare, beautiful anomaly in the electric scooter world – a long-range model that’s affordable.

Josh Riding the EMOVE Cruiser S

Not only is this extended range super convenient – it’s also great news for your battery. Charging it less frequently will prolong its health, and help extend its shelf life for many rides to come. When your battery does run dry, a full recharge takes between 9 and 12 hours.

EMOVE Cruiser S Rear of Chassis

The battery pack is also protected by a smart management system. By regulating the voltage flowing in and out, this savvy system helps guard against the perils of overheating, over-charging, and over-discharging to aid the long-term prospects of your scooter’s insides.

EMOVE Cruiser S Handlebars

Elsewhere, the Cruiser is the first single-motor scooter to feature a Sine Wave controller. The benefit here is a serenely smooth throttle response, which you’ll come to appreciate on long rides.

EMOVE Cruiser S Front Suspension

Combined with the well-positioned thumb throttle and rear-mounted 1000W motor, it accelerates to 15 mph in 3.8 seconds and 25 mph in 10.3 seconds before hitting its top speed of 33 mph.

Josh on the EMOVE Cruiser S

Then there’s the cruise control feature. This allows you to travel at a constant speed, without having to engage the throttle.

Add to this the expansive 23 x 7.75 inches of usable deck space, plush 10-inch self-healing tires, and dual suspension system, and the Cruiser achieves comfort at every turn. Not only can you adopt a stance that suits your riding style, but thanks to the two large springs that flank the front tire and the duo of shocks at the rear, it lets you cruise for impressive distances without getting too fatigued. The tires offer plenty in the way of shock absorption, agility, and dependability, too.

EMOVE Cruiser S Suspension and Tire

The Cruiser backs up its confidence-inspiring ride with an impressive braking setup. Its semi-hydraulic brakes – which you’ll observe on just a slim handful of scooters in the Cruiser’s price class – give it a laudable braking distance of just 2.6 meters from 15 mph.

EMOVE Cruiser S Brake Lever

Cupid’s arrow also hits when it comes to its industry-leading 352 lbs load-bearing capacity. This makes it an ideal choice for riders who are heavier on the scale.

EMOVE Cruiser S Deck

You can adjust the height of the handlebars, too. However, by my measurements, its maximum deck-to-handlebar height of 39 inches is a little too short for riders over 6 ft. This is a shame – but there’s always the option to add a seat, which you can get your hands on for $65.

EMOVE Cruiser S Telescopic Stem

To top it all off, the entire frame is protected by an IPX6 water-resistance rating, while it also weighs just 52 lbs, making it 42% lighter than other long-range models (based on 13 scooters that have maximum ranges of between 50 and 70 miles). Together, these make the EMOVE Cruiser S a versatile, all-weather scooter that remains portable.

Why I Recommend the Apollo City Pro as the Best For Commuting & All-Weather Riding:

Rarely am I left in a dumbstruck reverie after testing an electric scooter – but that’s exactly what effect the Apollo City Pro had on me.

Josh Testing the Apollo City Pro

Aside from sporting a display that could perhaps be a smidge brighter, this is a model that hits the right notes in every area. Seriously, that’s the only real criticism I have.

Apollo City Pro Display

Its 48V 20Ah battery stores 11% more energy than the smaller unit found on its predecessor, resulting in a longer 43-mile maximum range (or 27 miles when factoring in my real-world tests).

Josh Riding the Apollo City Pro

With an exceptionally short recharge time of just 4.5 hours, a management system that supplies five different types of protection for long-lasting health, and 21700 cells to boost efficiency, the City Pro’s battery can be relied upon. As can its frame, as evidenced by its industry-leading 10,000 km warranty.

Apollo City Pro Premium Design

There’s also its outstanding ride quality. Long rides can take their toll on your body, but thanks to a deck-to-handlebar height of 42.1 inches, handlebars that measure 26.4 inches, and a spacious, tapered, grippy deck that offers 22.6 inches of usable space, the City Pro’s well-designed geometry lays the foundation for comfort.

Apollo City Pro Cockpit

This quality is strengthened by the triple spring suspension and 10-inch tubeless tires. Together with the deep-traveling swingarms, the springs compress in a smooth and controlled motion. This keeps the scooter responsive, even when riding over rough pot-holed roads.

Apollo City Pro Rear Springs

Handling is also assured thanks to its 11-degree rake angle. It combines the best of both worlds – stability and nimbleness.

And if all of this wasn’t enough to make long rides enjoyable, the dual 48V 500W motors and ultra-smooth thumb throttle do the trick. Together, they produce a top speed of 32 mph and, based on my tests, an acceleration rate of 0-15 mph in 2.3 seconds. Most impressive, though, is the smoothness at which power is delivered.

Josh Riding the Apollo City Pro On a Road

And when you need to bring everything to a halt, you can rely on the dual drums and regenerative braking system to get the job done. From 15 mph it took the City Pro just 2.1 meters to stop. Plus, the regen brake can be used independently, allowing you to slow in the most energy-efficient way. By recycling kinetic energy, it can recharge the battery by up to 10%.

Josh Using the Apollo City Pro Regen Brake

The strength of the regen system can be adjusted along with your acceleration via the mobile app. Through it, you can also record rides, change the top speed of each riding mode, activate a digital lock, and switch between start modes.

Apollo Air 2023 Mobile App

Factor in the simple, yet reliable folding mechanism – which allows you to collapse the stem in mere seconds – and a well-rounded lighting setup, and you have a scooter that’s tailor-made for commutes.

But the City Pro is also the best long-range model for all-weather rides. Its IP66 water-resistance rating is exceptionally rare, with anti-corrosive paint, a proprietary design, and immaculate cable management ensuring that there are no vulnerabilities.

Indeed, the Apollo City Pro excels in pretty much every area, making it a hard act to follow for the rest of the scooters in its price class.

Why I Recommend the INOKIM OxO as the Best For Ride Quality:

The INOKIM OxO has remained largely unchanged for years now – which is a testament to its enduring appeal among casual riders and seasoned pros alike. The latest edition does, however, feature a couple of welcomed surprises.

Josh Testing the INOKIM OxO

First, the OxO remains utterly formidable when it comes to stamina. Fuelled by a 60V 25.6Ah battery, it offers 68 miles of maximum range on a single charge – or 37 miles when factoring in realistic conditions. The only hitch is the 13.5 hours of recharging time required, though such is its range, one evening every week or two will likely be all you need.

INOKIM OxO Charging Port

Luckily, the OxO’s built to cater to the demands of long-distance rides. Its large deck is now grippier than the one found on previous iterations, while its broad handlebars and flared handgrips maximize your handling and stability.

INOKIM OxO Handlebars

Its dual 60V 1000W motors, meanwhile, produce a 0-15 mph acceleration in just 2.5 seconds, while it also delivers a peak power output of 2600W and a top speed of 40 mph. Moderate inclines pose no real challenges, either.

INOKIM OxO Front Motor

One criticism that I had of the previous OxO was its sluggishness out of the blocks. This has been remedied on the new version: its acceleration is now 29% faster. The ergonomic thumb throttle no longer has any lag, making a significant difference in its handling and responsiveness.

INOKIM OxO Durable Frame

One area where the OxO has always been a high achiever, though, is ride quality. Thankfully, the latest edition is no different.

Its patented rubber block suspension system adapts to your weight and terrain to ensure a supremely smooth ride on streets and off-road tracks alike, while its 10-inch pneumatic tires add another layer of shock absorption. In fact, its shock-absorbing capabilities are so impressive that the OxO has, and will remain, one of the most comfortable scooters that I’ve ever ridden.

INOKIM OxO Orange Swingarm

Better yet, the suspension can be adjusted to two settings – High and Low. High provides more clearance and allows the swingarm to travel deeper, making it well-suited to off-roading. Low creates a more streamlined profile that’s better suited to fast-paced rides in the city.

And, because it features a unique single-sided swingarm design, changing the tires is far easier than scooters that rely on dual swingarms.

INOKIM OxO Black Frame

As for build quality, take a bow, INOKIM. The OxO is the product of CNC manufacturing, meaning each of its components has been forged from a single piece of stress-tested aluminum alloy. With no welding, there are no weak points. Factor in the narrow, yet deep stem, wide handlebars, and spacious deck, and you have the apex of build and design in its price class.

INOKIM OxO Stem

I’m also happy to report that, unlike its predecessor, the latest OxO now comes with an IPX4 water resistance rating. Its elongated rear fender hugs the tire to keep you dry on wet, muddy rides, too.

The good news keeps on coming when we switch the focus to the reliability of its brakes. Here, it’s fitted with best-in-class hydraulics that achieve highly responsive braking power on all terrain. With even the slightest pull on the brake levers, the OxO brought me to a stop from 15 mph in 2.7 meters.

INOKIM OxO Brake Lever

If there was one drawback it’s that the lighting rig isn’t bright enough for night rides. While it sports two lights at the front of the deck, it only has a single taillight. It also doesn’t have a high-mounted headlight, meaning you’ll need to invest in an extra clip-on.

INOKIM OxO Front Light

Yet despite its slight mishap in the lighting department, the OxO manages to tick every other box to qualify it as a top-performing long-range electric scooter.

Why I Recommend the Mantis King GT as the Best All-Terrain Scooter:

What do you get when you take all that’s great about a Mantis scooter and feed it steroids? The Mantis King GT – that’s what. This new and improved titan of Kaboo’s beloved range has upped the ante in every conceivable way, and I couldn’t be happier.

Josh Testing the Mantis King GT

First, let’s look at its 60V 24Ah battery. With 1440Wh of energy and a pool of 21700 cells at your disposal, it has the capacity to deliver a maximum range of 56 miles, though – as per my tests – you’ll realistically get closer to 38 miles. Plus, it takes just 6 hours to recharge (thankfully, it comes with two chargers to make that happen).

Mantis King GT Charging Ports

As impressive is its speed credentials. With dual 1100W motors and 30A Sine Wave controllers, it reaches a top speed of 43 mph and achieves a fast, yet smooth acceleration; it’s like putting a saddle on a tiger or capturing nuclear fusion in a jar. It has to be seen and felt.

Mantis King GT Front 1100W Motor

As do its shock-absorbing capabilities. Thanks to a duo of easily adjustable dual hydraulic shocks, the GT manages to maintain a buttery-smooth ride, no matter the terrain – as evidenced by my 9/10 shock absorption score.

Mantis King GT Adjustable Hydraulic Suspension

This is bolstered by its 10-inch hybrid pneumatic tires. Not only is their tread deep enough to provide grip and traction on loose terrain, but their rounded front-on profile means you have just as much control on the straights as you do in the corners. The wheels have split rims, too, making it easier to change the tires.

Mantis King GT Off-Road Tire

Its adeptness on any terrain is bolstered by its 26-inch wide handlebars. This feature of its design maximizes your sense of balance and control, while the grippy, spacious deck allows you to keep your feet firmly – and comfortably – planted. It also comes with a kickplate that lets you lean into the scooter for greater handling at speed.

Mantis King GT Grippy Deck

This inherent agility is supplemented in no small part by the Zoom hydraulic brakes, which go toe-to-toe with the best-in-class offerings of Kaabo’s most expensive scooters. Together, with the 140 mm rotors, the brakes brought me to a sudden stop in just 2.1 meters.

Mantis King GT Hydraulic Disc

The mic-dropping highlights don’t end there. Complete with an IPX5 water-resistance rating, it’s safe to say the Mantis King GT has every box ticked. It withstands downpours and can be ridden through puddles, but, as always, it’s best to avoid pushing any electric scooter too hard when it comes to rainy days.

Mantis King GT Handlebars

Last but by no means least, the GT certainly knows how to garner attention with a lighting rig fit for a Fast & Furious cameo. We’re talking customizable RGBs, turn signals, and a high-mounted headlight.

Why I Recommend the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro as the Best Seated Scooter:

Half scooter, half motorbike, the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro makes all other seated models look tame.

Josh Testing the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro

Think I’m exaggerating? Think again: its mammoth dual 60V 2000W motors and 45A Sine Wave controllers conjure a peak power output of 6000W and a savage top speed of 50 mph. Its ferocity is crystal clear as soon as you twist its throttle. While testing it, I hurtled from 0 to 15 mph in just 2.6 seconds and hit 25 mph in 4.3. Good job that it had strong brakes, then.

Josh Riding the EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Fast

Its large 180 mm rotors and powerful Zoom hydraulic 2-piston calipers brought me to a responsive stop from 15 mph in 3.0 meters.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Hydraulic Disc Brake

With this much power, you need to be mindful of wheel spin and modulate your acceleration accordingly so that you don’t lose control. Thankfully, the ultra-wide 31-inch handlebars (among the widest that I’ve tested) promise both stability and control, while the footpegs serve as trusty sidekicks for leaning into turns and maintaining balance when hitting top speeds.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Foot Peg

Measuring 20.5 inches long, 7.9 inches wide, and 3.5 inches deep, the large, thick, memory foam seat ensures comfort at every mile, too.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Memory Foam Seat

But the seat can’t take all of the credit. The 14-inch tubeless tires and front and rear suspension also deserve plaudits. The dual rear springs are plush and cushion the ride, while the front hydraulic fork is a little stiffer to prevent wobble at speed. Together, these afford the RoadRunner Pro with an addictive quality, making it all the more enjoyable to ride when taking advantage of its 50-mile maximum range (or 34 miles if you put the pedal to the metal).

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Being Ridden

Here’s the game-change, though – the battery is detachable, meaning you can double your range with the purchase of a spare. However, let’s be realistic – the 60V 30Ah battery is large, heavy, and not exactly portable. Having the ability to remove the battery does make charging easier, though.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Removable Battery

Equally as impressive is the lighting rig. The ginormous headlight is blindingly bright, while an effervescent taillight and visible turn signals perform their respective roles with aplomb. Together, they form one of the brightest lighting packages in the business.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Headlight Beam at Night

An area where it’s not so versatile, however, is its lack of a water-resistant rating. It makes amends in other areas, though. One is its 330 lbs load-bearing capacity – a feature that few models can equal. Another is its adjustable handlebars. Here, their height can be altered through a series of spacers, whilst they can also be moved towards or away from you. I used all but one of the spacers and the ground-to-handlebar height measured 40 inches.

EMOVE RoadRunner Pro Wide Handlebars

The last factor to consider is the RoadRunner Pro’s price. Voro Motors, the brand behind the scooter, claims that it could easily retail for $4,000, and I’d have to agree.

The scooters that I’ve reviewed with similar power credentials cost, on average, $3,850. Under this lens, the Pro offers exceptional value for money. To drive this point home further, we can compare it to the Surron X. This powerful electric bike has a top speed of 46 mph, a maximum range of 60 miles, and costs $4,400.

Why I Recommend the NAMI Klima Max as the Best For Explosive Power:

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing one of the most explosive electric scooters that I’ve ever tested: the indomitable NAMI Klima Max.

Josh Testing the NAMI Klima

Armed with dual 60V 1000W motors, 40A Sine Wave controllers, and perhaps the most ergonomic thumb throttle that you’ll find anywhere, this torpedo can hit a top speed of 42 mph in a matter of seconds. To put this into perspective, I measured its acceleration from 0-15 mph to be a blistering 1.9 seconds, while it hit 25 mph in just 2.9.

Josh Riding the NAMI Klima in a Woodland

Good job that its Logan 2-piston hydraulic brakes can bring you to a complete stop in a whiplashing 2.1 meters, then.

NAMI Klima Disc Brake

With all that power you’ll be glad to hear that the 27-inch-wide handlebars maximize stability, while the grippy deck grants a bounty of room for your feet. The wobble-free stem, meanwhile, stands 42 inches high from the deck, making it a great option for taller riders.

NAMI Klima Grippy Deck

Now, before we delve any deeper into the review, it’s important to know that the Klima Max is the souped-up version of the standard, and cheaper, Klima. The key difference between the two is that the Max sports a superior 60V 30Ah LG battery, complete with 21700 cells. This translates into a mammoth maximum range of 60 miles (or 47 miles when you account for periods of fast acceleration, cruising, and multiple stops) – 10 miles more than what the Klima can offer.

Josh Riding the NAMI Klima Off-Road

When the battery needs replenishment, the good news is it can be recharged in 7 hours by using the fast charger that comes included in the box.

A big battery, wind-whipping power, and quick charging time aren’t enough to qualify a scooter for a place on my coveted list alone. Ride quality is essential, too, and this is another area where the Klima Max excels.

NAMI Klima Rear Wheel

Harnessing the same fully adjustable hydraulic suspension system that made the NAMI name synonymous with cutting-edge performance, riding this beaut is like hovering on a cloud. By twisting the red dial above each spring, you can configure compression and rebound rates to your weight and terrain. It's so good that I rated its shock absorption a near-perfect 9.5 out of 10.

NAMI Klima Adjustable Suspension

This show-stopping feature is augmented by the 10 x 3-inch tubeless tires. Not only do they provide oodles of cushioning, but they also grip the ground like limpets on a rock. The result is a supremely comfortable, reliable ride, meaning wheel spin is controlled and aggressive cornering guaranteed.

NAMI Klima Front Tire

If all of that wasn’t enough, the credit-card-sized display gives you access to a smorgasbord of p-settings that allow you to make the experience even more tailored. Here, you can create an entire riding mode based on your preferences. For example, if you live in a hilly area, you may want to funnel more power to the front motor than the one at the rear so that the scooter pulls you up hills, as opposed to pushing you.

NAMI Klima Display

There’s also its impressive lighting rig that serves as a trusty sidekick for long-range rides into the night. The 2000-lumen headlight could illuminate the Grand Canyon, while the bright and responsive taillight is supported by turn signals to keep your intentions to other road users clear.

NAMI Klima Lights

So, there you have it. The NAMI Klima Max. Perhaps the biggest triumph yet from a brand that keeps on pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for electric scooters.

Why I Recommend the NAMI Burn-e 2 as the Best For Ultra-Performance:

The NAMI Burn-e 2 is to scooters what Tom Brady is to quarterbacks. It’s simply the best ultra-performance model that’s ever been made – you’d need an afternoon to get through its highlight reel. But let’s indulge in a whistle-stop tour.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Rear of Chassis

Propelled by a gargantuan 72V 28Ah battery, the Burn-e 2 has an outstanding 90 miles in its tank. As for realistic range, you can look forward to a staggering 50 miles. Plus, you can expect a recharge time of between 6 and 8 hours, which is remarkable considering that other batteries of a similar size can take up to 20 hours. Even the charger comes with an inbuilt fan for temperature regulation.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Charging Ports Open

Then there are its dual 72V 1000W motors and powerful Sine Wave controllers. This formidable quartet results in a hair-raising 1.8-second acceleration to 15 mph, while their combined peak power output of 5040W promises a 45 mph top speed. The secret sauce is in those torquey 72V-rated motors. No other scooter in this guide has this rating, putting the NAMI Burn-e 2 into a league of its own.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Swingarm

As for hills… What hills? The Burn-e 2 will make you forget they exist. Get over yourself, San Francisco.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Handlebars

Next up, let's take a look at its best-in-class ride quality. Exhibit A: the buttery-smooth adjustable hydraulic suspension system that gives you full control over the rebound and compression of each spring. The result of this ground-breaking setup is a perfect 10/10 on my shock absorption scale. No other scooter comes close – which is saying a lot when you consider the sheer number of scooters that I’ve reviewed.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Rebound Dial

The hydraulic shocks are bolstered by 11-inch tires. They offer outstanding grip and control. As standard, the scooter comes with basic, but reliable nylon tires. I, however, urge you to get PMT tires as they transform the Burn-e 2’s capabilities with better grip, faster cornering, and less wheel spin.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Rear of Tire and Suspension

As for build quality, the Burn-e 2 makes its mark as one of the best-built scooters. The level of detail is astounding. From the matte black aviation-grade frame and menacing girders to the protective IP55 water-resistance rating and carbon fiber stem, everything about it screams quality.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Frame From Rear

All of this would be wasted without some serious brakes, of course. Working in cahoots with the grippy tires and regenerative braking system, the 2-piston Logan hydraulics are exceptional. Under my tests, I came to a complete stop from 15 mph in just 1.8 meters. Stacked up against the rest of the scooters that I’ve tested, the Burn-e 2’s stopping power is unrivaled.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Front Disc Brake

Its next-gen display is standard-setting, too. Think you know customization? Think again. This device will floor you with the sheer breadth of possibilities available at your fingertips. Practically every node can be personalized to create a riding experience that’s tailor-made for you.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Display

Even the lighting rig is next level with a powerful 2000-lumen headlight, a supporting cast of swaggy deck LEDs, and turn signals that wrap around the sides and rear of the scooter.

NAMI Burn-e 2 Lights

Take a bow, NAMI. The Burn-e 2 raises the bar to a level that I’m yet to see another performance scooter match.

Testing & Analysis

How Did I Test the Scooters?

To find the 11 best long-range electric scooters, I tested 44 models and assessed each across their maximum and real-world range. But, one thing was for sure, a long mileage wasn’t enough to win a place on my coveted list. Ride quality, reliability, charge times, battery size, battery quality, and battery management systems were all part of the assessment.

These tests were carried out as part of a wider, standardized testing process that I employ for every electric scooter that I review. Find out more about how I test below:

Long-Range Electric Scooters That I Tested:

Click through the photo carousel to see all of the scooters that I tested for this guide.

Test Criteria:

Maximum & Real-World Range

These are the headline stats that most riders will notice when looking for a long-range electric scooter.

A model’s maximum range, as indicated by the manufacturer, refers to its mileage when ridden under best-case conditions. Typically, this includes a 165 lb rider, flat terrain, and riding in the slowest setting. While these figures are useful for comparing performance, they don’t paint the full picture.

Long Range Electric Scooters

As a result, I reported on how each scooter performed under real-world conditions – including me as a 190 lb rider, periods of fast acceleration, cruising, and multiple stops. This data was then used to assess range relative to price to identify the top performers for different budgets.

Based on my tests, as well as third-party data, the real-world range typically equates to 60% of the maximum.

Further Information:

How I Test Real-World Range

Battery Size

Electric scooters with the longest range in each price category invariably have the largest batteries relative to their peers. To determine the size of each scooter’s unit, I reported on their voltage (V), amp-hours (Ah), and watt-hours (Wh).

The voltage of a battery refers to the strength of its electrical charge. Amp-hours, meanwhile, indicate how much electricity can be supplied from the battery to other electrical components (like the motors) in an hour. And finally, watt-hours are used to measure battery capacity – it’s calculated by multiplying voltage by amp-hours.

SPLACH Mukuta Removable Battery

In general, the higher the voltage, amp-hours, and watt-hours, the bigger the battery’s capacity for stored energy. Here, a higher figure typically equated to a longer range.

Battery Quality

Not all electric scooter batteries are made equal. A scooter’s long-term range (i.e. over the course of years) is largely determined by the quality of its battery cells. To address this, I reported on the brand and type of cells used.

FST batteries, for example, are relatively standard units, but while they perform well in the short term, their performance degrades over time (as to be expected). Higher quality batteries made by LG, Samsung, Dynavolt, and Panasonic, on the other hand, can perform at their optimum for up to 500 charge cycles. By comparison, FST batteries typically deliver 200-300 cycles at peak performance. The difference between the two can equate to years of use depending on how often you charge your scooter. Other factors can cause a battery to degrade, too, but charge cycles are one that you have greater control over.

60V 35Ah Battery

Battery Management Systems

Battery management systems are crucial for regulating the flow of electricity. By protecting against over-voltage, low-voltage, over-discharge, over-current, and over-temperature, they keep batteries operating within safe parameters.

They also report key information back to the scooter's display, allowing you to view things like battery level, temperature readouts, and error codes that correspond to certain issues.

Electric Scooter Controller

With the above in mind, I made sure to only select the scooters that had battery management systems.

Charge Time

Long-range rides can deplete your battery, so a fast recharge time (within reason) is preferred.

To assess how long this takes, I considered the manufacturer’s specs, alongside my calculations where I divided each battery’s amp hours (Ah) by the amperage (A) of the included charger.

Expert Tip: If you opt for a scooter that has a battery bigger than 15Ah then you may want to purchase a fast charger to significantly reduce the charge time.

Electric Scooter Charger Plugged Into Scooter

Ride Quality

Ride quality is fundamental to the appeal of a long-range electric scooter.

Aside from testing each scooter hands-on to garner insights into their comfortability and handling, I also conducted several assessments to determine how the geometry and shock-absorbing profile of each influenced their riding experience.

To do this, I first measured their handlebar width, usable deck space, and deck-to-handlebar height. The wider the handlebars, the greater the control. The bigger the usable deck space, the larger the room to find a natural riding stance. And, the higher the deck-to-handlebar height, the better your posture (this also allowed me to identify the suitability of each scooter for riders of different heights).

Josh Cruising on the Apollo City Pro

Then, to assess each scooter’s ability to soak up shocks, I tested their rebound and compression rates, the balance of shock absorption across the front and rear of the scooter, the amount of travel that the swingarms and suspension provided, and whether there was any bottoming out. All of this coalesced into a shock absorption rating out of 10 – where 1 was extremely stiff and 10 was extremely soft.

Tires are just as important as shock absorption – especially for scooters that don’t have a suspension system. To assess performance in this area, I paid particular attention to agility and traction.

Fluid Vista in Motion

The final assessments were made on how well each scooter responded to different inputs (i.e. is the throttle smooth or jerky, can you carve from side to side, is there a cruise control feature and if so how effective is it at maintaining speed, etc).

Reliability

Imagine it: you’re on mile 25, in the middle of nowhere, when you hear a pop. Flat tire. Disaster! Reliability is crucial for long rides, so the tests that I conducted took into account durability.

Here, I reported on the quality of the tires (i.e. their ability to prevent punctures), the rigidity of each scooter (i.e. checking for vulnerabilities that could cause structural issues such as stem wobble), and the protection against wet weather (i.e. IP ratings). All of these factors were considered relative to price.

Answering Your Questions

Long-Range Electric Scooter FAQs

Which Electric Scooter Has the Longest Range?

The Dualtron Storm Limited has the longest range of all the electric scooters in my 140+ model database. However, while it has a maximum range of 137 miles, it's uncomfortable to ride for prolonged periods. 

As a result, the NAMI Burn-e 2 stands out as a top choice. It has a maximum range of 90 miles and a buttery-smooth ride.

How Can I Increase the Range of my Electric Scooter?

There are a couple of things that you can do to make your battery last longer and improve the mileage of your scooter, but it mostly comes down to your riding style.

If you like to ride aggressively and hit top speeds as often as you can, you'll use more power and drastically reduce your battery's range. Moderating your speed and slowing down will prolong battery life, letting you ride further. 

Can You Overcharge an Electric Scooter?

As with all battery-driven electronics, electric scooters are at risk of overcharging if they’re plugged in for longer than the stated charge time. In the long run, your battery will become less efficient and you’ll likely have to replace it.

Luckily, most scooters come with battery management systems to help prevent this from happening. 

How Long Do Electric Scooter Batteries Last?

This depends on the quality of the battery.

Cell type plays an important role in how many times a battery can be recharged before its peak performance declines.

Good quality batteries, like those from LG and Samsung, typically deliver 500-600 charge cycles without compromising performance. Based on this data, if you were to charge two times a week, your battery would remain at full capacity for around 5-6 years. On the other hand, cheaper Chinese FST batteries deteriorate faster giving you around 1-2 years less performance compared to their higher-quality counterparts.

Those with battery management systems also last longer. These are designed to optimize battery performance by protecting against short-circuiting, overcurrent, overcharging, and over-discharging. 

Why Won’t My Electric Scooter Hold a Charge?

There are a few common reasons for this, the first being that there’s a problem with the battery itself. This could be because it’s old, damaged, or needs replacing. 

It could also occur as a result of overcharging, which can cause the battery to lose power more quickly. On the other hand, leaving long periods between charges (3 months or more) can cause damage to the cells.

It's also worth checking that your charger is fully functional.

In all instances, it’s best to seek professional advice to diagnose the issue and take the correct steps to fix it.

How Often Should I Charge My Electric Scooter?

The amount of time varies from model to model, but the exact time for each is usually specified in the scooter’s manual.

It’s important to make sure that you don’t exceed the number of hours stated as this can lead to overcharging, resulting in battery damage.

Similarly, make sure you don’t leave it too long between charges either. Even if you aren’t using your scooter, it’s important to keep the battery level topped up. Letting it drain and leaving it that way can cause just as much harm as overcharging.

How Much Does an Electric Scooter Battery Cost?

Several factors affect price, including capacity (Watt-Hours), and cell type (Chinese FST, LG, Samsung, etc).

Smaller batteries found in budget scooters like the Turboant X7 Max (36V 10Ah, 360Wh, FST) cost as little as $170, whereas large high-quality batteries found in performance scooters like the Mantis King GT (60V 24Ah, 1440Wh, Samsung) cost upwards of $600.

When Should a Scooter Battery Be Replaced?

High-quality scooter batteries (including LG, Samsung, Panasonic, and Dynavolt) will hold their peak performance for 5-6 years (if you were to charge them twice a week). Cheap Chinese FST batteries last for 3-4 years at the same rate of usage. Beyond these time frames, their performance will gradually deteriorate, marking the point at which they should be replaced.

Which Battery is Best For an Electric Scooter?

Those made from lithium-ion are the preferred battery type for electric scooters. They are generally more expensive than lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride batteries, but they're smaller, lighter, require less maintenance, last longer, and are more efficient.
