Dualtron is the brand of electrically powered off road scooters produced by the Korean company Minimotors. When it was launched in 2015, Dualtron was the first electric scoter with dual motor drive. While many manufactures were trying to make their scooters, small sleek and highly portable in order to patch that last mile to the public transport station, MiniMotors have come up with a true monster machine built to go at insane speeds and conquer the roughest terrain.
Dualtron quickly overtook the competition to become the most popular electric scooter in Korea, Singapore, and all over Asia, Europe and Australia, with its ground breaking all-terrain capability, long range of 60 miles, maximum speed of 30 mph, beautiful design, sturdiness and durability, and its selectable Single/Dual motor operation modes.
At the moment, Dualtron Thunder is the highest performing folding electric scooters there is. This sturdy and powerful electric scooter is specifically designed for long distance leisure ride, trail blazing and off road adventures. It is not a surprise that Dualtron has fan clubs all over the world, with enthusiastic riders sharing their experiences and their own Dualtron modifications.
Another brand worth mentioning from the MiniMotors is Speedway. Speedway is a series of scooters that are aiming to bring the highest performance possible to an urban electric scooter. These scooters are known for having high speed and distance without compromising quality and safety. Even the smallest model, the Speedway Mini 4 Pro, has more power and range than the M365 and ES2 combined. They are a bit more expensive than your typical lightweight options, but if you are looking for a superior ride, in terms of performance as well as riding comfort, Speedway scooters are worth the price.
Dualtron III is a city-friendly version of Dualtron Ultra. Dualtron III features two motors of 800W each (1600W combined), which makes it one of the most powerful folding scooters on the market. The power is followed by awesome acceleration, to the point that it is easy to forget that Dualtron III weighs 81 lbs. From an instrument panel you can choose from single or dual motor drive, as well as a three step speed adjustment. On max settings, the scooter can reach the 40mph mark. It also features the cruise control function, which makes the ride more enjoyable and decreases battery consumption.
With a battery rated 60V and 28Ah, its advertised range is 74 miles. But as you probably won’t be driving it on the flat ground only and in perfect weather conditions, expect to get a lot less – 45-50miles on a single charge. That is pretty good, but considering that it takes 16 hours to fully charge the battery with the stock 2A charger, it would probably be a good idea to invest in another one (Dualtron’s got two charging ports), or to get the premium 6.5A quick charger, which cuts the charging time to under 5 hours.
Dualtron has changed the structure of the Ultra-front suspension shaft and is now using the new type of rubber suspension. The 11” with ultra-wide tires give a good grip when driving on dirt or gravel roads, though you can still fell the bumps. If you want more comfort, we definitely recommend that you order a seat.
Additional features include a multi-functional LCD dashboard with a touchscreen where you can check the battery status and charge, speed, voltage and the time. It also features LED headlights and taillights, as well as brake lights controlled from the dashboard.
Dualtron III is not your average scooter that will get to the metro station every day – there are way cheaper and lighter alternatives for that! This scooter is made for adventures, traveling, and enjoying the electrically powered transportation to the max.

We suggested that Dualtron 3 is made for adventures and adrenaline-charged rides above all, but it is just too heavy for haul around up flights of stairs, or into the elevator. Other, lighter scooters, are just not powerful and not exciting enough. Well, seems like the latest edition by MiniMotors – Dualtron Spider, brings the best of the both worlds.
The engineers have managed to cut the weight of the scooter almost in half, putting Spider just under 44 lbs. Despite what you might think, all the modifications that made this scooter more lightweight compared to the rest of the Dualtron line-up, did not affect the top-notch performance that Dualtron scooters are known for. You will not get this level of speed, acceleration, range or stability on any other scooter weighing below 45 lbs. Dualtron Spider has the combination of weight and power that is, at this time, without competition.
Two 800W motors with combined maximum output of 3600W will get you to speeds up to 37 mph, which is almost as fast as Thunder. Spider is very agile, fun to ride and incredibly torquey. You will have to take some time to set the speed/power mode that fits your riding style, and after that, there is just nothing that can stop you.
For stopping you will have to rely on front and rear mechanical disk brakes, although they are equipped with the ABS anti-locking system. Stopping power is quite good, but they will likely need a little adjustment out of the box.
The most impressive feature of this scooter is certainly the suspension. All Dualtron scooters are equipped with state-of-the-art adjustable rubber suspension that is far superior to the suspensions available on other scooters. Also, the 10” air-filled tube tires provide additional cushioning, although they are narrower compared to other Dualtron scooters.
There are few shortcomings, but for us, they are not a deal breaker. Handlebar is made out of carbon fiber, it feels pretty solid, but the thin foam handle bar grips feel ridiculously cheap. Sure, they are easy to replace, but it’s a little detail that is unacceptable on a scooter of this level, at this price.

The third generation of Dualtron Thunder is the fastest, most powerful, most capable sport electric scooter so far. Unleashing 5400W of power from two BLDC hub motors, this scooter can blast at a speed up to 49 mph. It features the same 60V and 35Ah LG Lithium battery as Ultra, only 60V and 35Ah, only safely secured inside an aluminum box. The range is same as Dualtron Ultra; according to specs you can reach 74 miles, but in a real life ride scenario, more like 45 miles.
Dualtron Thunder offers the levels of road safety and stability that is just unheard of in today’s production electric scooters, featuring hydraulic brakes and ABS. Dual piston caliper system provides an excellent control & stability, absorbs more heat and noise, and because of better distribution it wears better.
The suspension on Dualtron Thunder is a true innovation. The 45 steps control suspension system consists of 3 steps motor axis distance control, 3 steps arm angle control, and 5 types of the rubber. That means that there are 45 options (3 x 3 x 5) of the adjustment of the suspension strength. That means that you can get the best riding comfort on all kinds of terrain, in all seasons, rain or shine.
Speaking of rain, Dualtron Thunder has an improved water protection compared to the Ultra. Cables are fully shielded against any exterior hazards with the additional pieces of rubber that seal the cable entrances to the main body, and also every bolt in the scooter comes with thread sealant. Small details that mean a lot for the longevity of the scooter.
The Thunder comes with a variety of accessories, such as a remote control that allows you to choose the color of the LED lighting on the bar, as well as the brightness and mode. Another reason Thunder is a premium scooter is that Dualtron series does not use the off-brand or generic parts sold in the existing market. MiniMotors uses 100% self-produced parts.
- Motor: Dual 5400W BLDC Hub Motor (2x2700W)

If all the power, speed and technology did not manage to get your head spinning, MiniMotors still has got an ace up their sleeve. There is a new scooter to be launched, probably in the beginning of next year, that will be the most powerful, fastest, most advanced electric scooter in the world.
After the Dualtron Ultra, MiniMotors company is ready to launch the new ultra powerful ride, dubbed Dualtron X. If everything on this scooter turns out to be what was promised, there is no doubt that Dualtron X will become a legend.
