Up until recently the electric scooters were notorious for being too slow. With those heavy SLA batteries, the 20mph was pretty much the maximum speed for electric scooters. But with new Lithium batteries came the improvement in capacity, the electronics got better and new e-scooters and electric mopeds got faster. Fast enough to compare to any vehicle on city streets. So which is the fastest electric scooter you can buy in 2019?

Speed record on electric vehicle with two wheels was set by Paul Thede on The Lightning Motorcycles SuperBike, which managed to reach the speed of whooping 218 mph. Now, we are definitely not looking for that amount of speed in our scooters. It would probably be very unsafe to go crazy fast on an e-scooter. So we decided to put the record-setting prototypes aside, and focus on the production models that can go over 20mph.

Although speed should not be the only thing to consider when buying electric scooter it is nice to know that you can speed up to 35 mph when you need to, especially if you happen to ride your electric scooter on city roads alongside cars and gas scooters.

1. Dualtron Thunder

If you need a lightweight portable urban scooter, you go to Xiaomi. If you need a crazy powerful electric scooter with a riding experience of a full size moped or motorcycle, you go to Minimotors. Dualtron Thunder is definitely one of the most powerful electric scooter currently available. Two BLDC hub motors with combined power of 5400W mean that one you push the throttle there is no stopping. We would dare to say that Dualtron Thunder is a true monster machine built to go at insane speeds and conquer the roughest terrain. Maximum speed is 50 mph, which you should be able to achieve with a slight modification, as it comes limited to 15mph out of the box.

2. Rion2 RE100: Special Production Racing Edition

The world’s only “hyperscooter” from Rion Motors is a complete beast and is the undisputed champion in going dangerously fast. It can reach speeds up to 80 mph (or more), and they are electronically limited to a maximum of 60 mph in the US.
The stats are scary; it has a peak power of 50,000 Watts. That’s 50 KW. That’s about the same amount of power a motorbike that can reach up to 124 mph (the RION most likely won’t reach these speeds as it has a very high drag coefficient, it’s not as aerodynamic as a motorbike).
The RION2 Special Edition has a 80 V/100 V 21700 Lithium battery; but like their other editions, this battery is very small and their range is, at best, about 30 miles at low speeds. They usually meek out about 5 miles at their top speed, which is still a very respectable number.
In part, they owe their high speed and amazing efficiency to their full carbon fiber construction and low battery weight.

rion electric race scooterUnlike most scooters on the market, the Rion utilizes slick racing tires that are made in Italy, and it is definitely not an off-road scooter. This scooter is designated only for the upcoming racing league and is not for sale, and if you’re lucky they’ll let you test drive one at their company’s headquarters in LA.

You can order a fully customized superscooter from them that might not be as powerful as their Special Production Racing Edition, but it will be faster than almost any other scooter out there. Their “weaker” options are all “capped” electronically at 60 mph, but they’ll reach 65+ mph easily.
Full protective gear is not optional here.

Features:

  • 50,000 Watts, dual hub motors
  • 80 mph top speed
  • Full Carbon Fiber Body
  • 600 A Battery Management System
  • 80 V/100 V 21700 LiPo Battery
  • Italian Slick Racing Tires
  • Magura MT7 Pro Hydraulic Brakes

3. Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11: Off Road eScooter

The Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11 is a pure off-road worthy beast, and is among the fastest and the toughest electric scooters out there. The two 1200 W hub motors can reach up to 5400 W of power, easily beating any incline (up to 45 degree slopes), and giving the you the adrenaline rush of your life every time you accelerate. You really have to grip the handles hard and brace yourself, because this baby will throw you off if you’re not careful. Accelerate responsibly until you get the hang of it.

Wolf Warrior 11 Electric Scooter Review

This scooter has much more in common with racing motorcycles than with other electric scooters; the front fork construction and suspension system gives that away at first glance. It’s better to think and act like the Wolf Warrior is a motorcycle, so be sure to wear full protective gear when you ride one.

Read our detailed review of the Wolf Warrior here.

The tires are 11″ pneumatic tubeless ones, and combined with the suspension system (hydraulic spring in the front, and two springs in the back) gives you a smooth ride on off-road terrain.

It has two hydraulic disc brakes to make you stop safely; to help them out, an E-ABS system will prevent your wheels from locking up. It’s water-resistant (IPX4 certificate), meaning it’ll work in the rain, as long as it’s not submersed in water.

Features:

  • Motor Power: Two 1200W hub-motors (peak 5400W)
  • 60V 35Ah Lithium Battery made by LG
  • Foldable, the mechanism is solid but this scooter isn’t easily portable.
  • Top Speed: 50 mph
  • Max Range: 93 miles Eco Mode / 56 miles Turbo Mode
  • 11” Pneumatic Tubeless Tires
  • Front and Rear Hydraulic Brake + E-ABS
  • Powerful LED Headlights and Brake Light
  • Full LED display made by Minimotors
  • IPX4 Water-resistant
  • Max Gradient: About 45 Degrees
  • Max load 330 lbs
  • Weight 101 lbs

6. Qiewa Q1 Hummer

Qiewa is a Taiwanese manufacturer of electric scooters that you probably never heard of before, but their heavy-duty folding electric scooters can go 35 mph easily.

You also have an option to buy a removable seat for this scooter.

With the 800W motor and 10” pneumatic tires, this is actually a pretty powerful all-terrain scooter that can easily conquer any road.

The chassis is made from high-strength aluminum and the scooter is also labeled IP6Waterproof.

Top speed depends on many factors, and the two most prevailing ones are the rider’s weight and the terrain. Even the most powerful e-scooter on this list will not reach its top speed when hauling a 260lbs rider uphill. But if you are average weight you can go pretty fast on flat ground. Of course, you should always wear helmet and other protection gear when riding a scooter, especially if you are going that fast. Electric scooters are real vehicles, not toys.

DISCLAIMER: We have made this list based on the top speeds that these scooters can reach, some of them with small modifications. We are not saying you should ride them at that speed, or that you should make any kind of modification on your scooter. In fact, legal limit for scooters that do not require license or registration is 20mph in most states, and any kind of tampering with your scooter will void the warranty.
