Fastest Electric Scooters
Since the introduction of electric kick scooters, the market has changed drastically. People have picked up on the trend and major cities are full of e-scooter riders making their daily commutes on them. The growing market has resulted in the introduction of high-speed electric scooters for both adults and kids. Today, we review the fastest electric scooters on the market.
How Fast Do Electric Scooters Go?
The fastest electric scooters can go up to 50 miles per hour. Entry-level e-scooters, however, only go around 7-10 mph. This leaves vast room for all sorts of top speeds in various price classes.
In this guide, we’ll only talk about the fastest models, so practically all the electric scooters mentioned in this article have a 25+ mph max speed.
Top 5 Fastest Electric Scooters Reviewed
1. Qiewa Q-POWER
Topping the list is an off-road capable monstrosity from Qiewa. The Qiewa Q-POWER is their most expensive electric scooter yet – and it is also their fastest.
Powered by incredible 1600W dual-motors, the Q-POWER is capable of reaching a max speed of 55 miles per hour. This makes it the fastest electric scooter on the market as of right now.
There is zero doubt that speed is the keyword for this high-power scooter but apart from that, it boasts some impressive features as well.
Powered by a high-capacity 5C 26AH battery, the Q-POWER is able to travel around 50 miles on a single charge depending on how you use it. This isn’t the longest range on this list but it is definitely up there. A single charge takes between 12 and 15 hours which is pretty average all things considered.
The Qiewa Q-POWER folds up nicely for easy storage and has a weight limit of 440 lbs which means it can handle heavy riders comfortably. Also, the scooter itself weighs around 81.5 pounds which is decent considering the battery, motors and the construction.
A nice addition is the wireless remote that comes with the scooter. Using this remote, you can lock/unlock the scooter and it also has anti-theft functionality, meaning you can track your scooter’s location at any time.
Ready To Go Off-Road
It is geared with wide 11″ off-road tires and both front and rear shock absorbers making it the ideal scooter for off-road usage. With the immense power and the sturdy construction, you’re able to climb and combat all sorts of terrain which makes for some extremely fun rides.
As for other notable features, there’s an adjustable handlebar (your back will thank you later), LED lights for low-light settings, double hydraulic brakes, a honking horn to show your presence in traffic and different riding modes. Also, the Q-POWER is IP5 waterproof, meaning you don’t have to worry about riding in the rain or through wet areas.
As for the price, it isn’t all that bad. Compared to other similarly performing models, you’re actually getting a lot of value for your money here. With a 12-month warranty and a renowned company behind it, the Qiewa Q-POWER really has all the bells and whistles to be not only the fastest electric scooter but also the most versatile.
2. Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11
Next up is a heavy-weight beast called the Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11. This beauty is able to conquer hill grades of up to 45 degrees due to two brushless high-performance 1200W motors along with two 40A controllers.
The Wolf Warrior comes in two variations. Either you get street tires or off-road tires pre-installed. You can always buy the other wheel type alone if you want to change between the types. Like the Qiewa Q-POWER, both wheel types are 11 inches. The street tires are recommended for high speeds.
The Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11 has the highest mileage we’ve ever seen on an electric scooter. Powered by a massive 60V 35AH LG-ion battery situated on the underside of the board, you can get upwards of 80 miles on a single charge. In that sense, part of the extra price tag on this scooter is due to the extra mileage.
All of this awesomeness in a sturdy package certainly isn’t light. Weighing in at 101 lbs, this high-power electric scooter is not the most portable though it folds together compactly to fit in, say, a trunk.
The comfort is almost unreal in this unit. Geared with a full-hydraulic braking system and an optional ABS system, braking is both smooth, accurate and fast – even when going at high speeds.
Some manufacturers have issues with wobbly handlebars but the adjustable handlebar on the Wolf Warrior is strong as houses.
With a rear spring brake and inverted hydraulic shock absorbers on the front, any terrain battle with feel as smooth sailing. This unit simply doesn’t care what kind of terrain is in front of it. It completely blasts through it with ease.
You’ll find two front LEDs, side-lights and a backlight that’ll help with visibility (both for you and others) in low-light scenarios, which is excellent for safety.
This is definitely one of the most impressive scooters we’ve seen yet. The mileage (80 miles on a charge) is the best on the market and using double chargers it’ll only take 7-8 hours to fill up the battery.
If you want the best of the best, the Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11 may be the right answer for your needs. It is pricey but you get what you pay for; an absolutely outstanding piece of craftsmanship with extraordinary power and lots of useful functionality.
3. Nanrobot RS11
Here’s another addition to the list with a 50 miles per hour top speed. The Nanrobot RS11 with 11-inch off-road wheels and dual-drive motors churning out 3600W of raw power.
The RS11 is loaded with a 60V 38Ah battery allowing it to travel 40-43 miles on a single charge. This is a little shorter than some of the competing scooters but it’s still plenty for most riders. Recharging takes between 8 and 14 hours and is done using a Smart Lithium battery charger that comes with the scooter.
Built Like A Tank
Now, the Nanrobot RS11 is built like a tank (it still feels much faster than a tank, don’t worry). Like the other high-speed scooters mentioned above, the Nanrobot RS11 es equipped with pneumatic 11-inch tires intended for terrain usage. A strong grip on even the roughest surfaces is ensured.
Impressive shock absorption, a wide board, and an adjustable handlebar are just a few of the things that makes riding this high-power scooter an absolute honor.
The RS11 weighs 110 lbs and has a maximum load capacity of 330 lbs which means that heavy riders can enjoy the experience of riding this beast as well. It is on the heavier side but given the insane motor power, it is fully understandable.
Before purchasing, you should familiarize yourself with the warranties relevant to the RS11. The entire scooter is covered for a total of 90 days after which the most vulnerable parts aren’t covered anymore. These include tires, horn, dashboard, brake discs.
Then for the battery and controllers, you have a 180-day warranty period. The motors and frames are covered for 12 months.
4. Kaabo MANTIS
The Kaabo MANTIS is amongst the best electric scooters I’ve ever tried. This advanced all-round scooter has a top speed of 40 MPH and comes in two range variations. The PRO version – featuring a 24.5Ah LG battery is able to travel 45+ miles on a charge, whereas the base version (with its 17.5Ah battery) can travel around 30 miles on a charge.
With two extremely powerful 1000W brushless 60V motors, you get incredible acceleration and blazing top speeds. Be careful with the throttle the first time you handle this scooter – the raw amount of power surprised me right off the bat.
You get semi-hydraulic disc brakes in the rear and front with the base version and fully hydraulic ones with the PRO version. With my PRO version, the brakes are super powerful, very smooth and don’t make too much noise. They’re all you could ask for with their adjustable regenerative braking strength.
Customize Your Ride
On the PRO version, you can customize your riding experience down to the tiniest detail. You can change max speeds, acceleration power, turn on/off cruise control, adjust the torque and enable optional ABS.
The suspension is absolutely incredible on the Kaboo MANTIS. With advanced swing arm spring suspension both at the front and back, the MANTIS conquers any type of terrain. It’s excellent for city riding and off-roading as well. To me, it’s the perfect solution for someone who wants to ride in the city sometimes but also want to be able to bring their scooter out in nature for longer rides.
My Personal Favorite
I have the honor of riding the Kaabo MANTIS on an almost daily basis to and from my office. It’s an absolute blast every single time and 10″x2.5″ air tires along with the high-end spring suspension make me feel like I am hovering, it really is that smooth.
If you want the perfect blend of speed and versatile riding capability, the Kaabo MANTIS is my suggested choice.
5. Speedway 5 Electric Scooter
Hold on tight because the Speedway 5 is blasting by. The Speedway 5 is a high-speed electric scooter designed in a more sleek way than some of the ones mentioned above. Weighing only 70 lbs while featuring BLDC dual hub motors outputting up to 3600 watts, you’re getting insane power in a fairly lightweight design.
Due to its 60-volt 23.4Ah battery and regenerative electric brake, the Speedway 5 is able to travel up to 70 miles on a single charge. Charging is around 13 hours unless you get the quick charger as an add-on purchase. Then it shortens charging time to just 4 hours.
Detail for Design & Construction
You may be thinking that since the Speedway 5 doesn’t look as bulky as some of the other scooters, it’s not as safe. That’s not true at all!
The Speedway 5 uses quality construction materials throughout. The frame and handle are designed from 6082-T6 aluminum alloy which is the same that is used on airplanes. For the shaft, they’ve used extremely sturdy SCM440 steel. The covers are polypropylene.
You’ll also find air suspension, disc brakes, and high-quality tubeless 10-inch air-filled tires that all provide an extremely smooth riding experience on rough surfaces.
With a simple one-touch folding mechanism, the Speedway 5 folds together nicely for easy transportation.
The instrument panel is worth highlighting as well. On there, you can see how much battery is left, your current speed, speed steps and how long you’ve ridden for. Heaps of customizations can be made through the interface. Battery saving modes, electronic brake settings, LCD brightness adjustment and more.
There’s also an auto-off timer which is very nice to have. If you forget to turn off the scooter, the timer will automatically shut it off after a set delay.
We Like It … A Lot!
At a fair price, you get quite a lot of functionality and power with the Speedway 5. MiniMotors USA (the company behind it) has great support as well and they’re always able to help you should you have any questions or issues arise.
