Bernd wanted a large and powerful hubmotor, and although the motor itself would not be very stealthy, by doing that he hoped to retain the maximum amount of frame space for an internal battery pack, compared to mounting a non-hub motor in the frame. The hub he chose is from the Quan Shun electric scooter company. QS also makes hubmotors in several sizes even larger than this, but…this is the largest hubbie that we recommend for an electric bike, since it easily avoids getting hot when fed 7000W, and yet it is still small enough to use a one-cross pattern when laced to a 16-inch moped rim.
At their best, electric scooters are marvels of mini engineering and at the forefront of electric powered vehicle technology. Our independent reviews of the electric battery-powered scooters here are featured on this page below the comparison table. Use the mini menu below to go to the specific product. Because escooters are great fun for adults and kids alike, we have reviewed a couple of models that are suitable for teens but they are mainly higher powered and larger adult versions.
The Rover BR2 by Oregon-based scooter company Works Electric is expensive at $5,950. But it’s one of the best out there performance-wise. It has a range of 30 miles and can reach a top speed of 35 mph. It can also accelerate to 30 mph in just 4.1 seconds — not bad at all for a scooter.
Speed is not that big of an issue, mostly because it is usually limited by laws and regulations in your country/city. Some scooters are fast enough to be street legal, but most likely you will be riding on sidewalks and bike lanes, which makes the speed less important.
Razor has been around for over 15 years and received numerous awards for design and innovative technology. Just like that, innovative and unique, is the EcoSmart Metro Electric Scooter. With a bamboo deck and classic white, powder-coated frame, this ride looks more like a vintage bike than the future of commuting. But don’t let the looks fool you: this is a decently powerful two-wheeler with powerful, but silent 500w motor, top speed of 20mph and a range between 15 and 20 miles on a single charge. The weight capacity is 220lbs. The Razor EcoSmart also features 16-inch pneumatic tires, rear disc brakes and adjustable handlebar and seat. Designed for ages 16 and up, this scooter will appeal to those that appreciate simple design and affordable price. Detachable luggage carrier and a kickstand add to the charm, and the price is practically a steal!
The major advantages of the E300 electric scooter for adults are its tough and durable frame, ergonomic and comfortable design suitable for both adults and kids. Wide pneumatic tires which handle various terrain at ease. Fairly good of 15mph and of course the fair price.

However, its charge lasts bit lesser (10 miles per charge cycle) when compared to other 2 models featured in this list. Again, taking consideration of the low price, this makes UbserScoot, a cost-effective choice as an electric scooter for adults.
Electric scooters can be split up into two key types – first is essentially a moped powered by an electric motor and are often allowed on the road. The second type is a stand on scooter that you can push or kick for propulsion, with the assistance of an electric motor. Both types can be charged and can scoot you around from about 10 -30 mph for an hour on a full charge.

The problem with moving away from car ownership is that you give up one its biggest upsides: you can usually park exactly where you’re going. Public transit, built around permanent stations, can’t offer that. That’s called the “last mile” problem: How do you get from the subway or bus stop to where you’re actually going, when it’s just a little too far to walk?
The famous Brand of self-balancing scooter Segway have produced this incredible high quality miniPro. Created for professional use, the miniPro is made by the company that made self-balancing scooters long before the word Hoverboard was coined. Segway’s are typically different to a Hoverbard because they usually have some kind of handlebar or knee-grip and their wheels are much larger than a regular Hoverboard.
S1 has 10 inch inflated tires that absorb any bumps and path holes. The spacious deck provides stability and leg space. Wheels and deck are the added advantages of comfort and smooth riding on this little speed demon.
Well just like what the name implies, an electric scooter or eScooter is a scooter that looks like a kick scooter but uses electrical energy supplied by rechargeable batteries as the source of power instead of gasoline or oil. This means that they are preferred by young people, because they are cheaper to run than cars. Electric scooters are also preferred by environmentally friendly people as there are no dangerous emissions to worry about.

I pushed off, thumbed down the throttle and whooshed away. After a few exhilarating minutes, I circled back, then left the Bird in front of my fence a block from where I’d picked it up. When I looked out my front window 10 minutes later, the Bird was gone, unlocked by a new unknown rider destined for who-knows-where.
Low maintenance. Since there are no fuel injectors, radiators, bulky and complicated engines, you don’t require a lot of maintenance. You don’t need oil changing or cleaning or cooling systems. Therefore, there is a huge saving regarding after sales expenses.
This adult scooter is manufactured by California based company called Super Cycles and Scooters LLC. This is the most powerful electric scooter for adults we came across as it comes with a 1000 watts motor (insane). The motor can attain speeds of up to 3000 rpm which enables the scooter to reach speeds of up to 27mph.
Similar to other types of vehicles or ride-on’s you need to make sure you get the right scooter for the right age of rider. Adult e-scooters have a greater weight capacity, meaning the rider can be a lot heavier.
You can travel for around 15 miles, depending on your weight on the Swagtron and with a top speed of around 15mph it’s pretty fast for such a lightweight machine. I’m not sure that you would want to go much faster on such a light electric scooter. That said, I do recommend wearing safety gear at all times. There is nothing like avoiding bumps and bruises or worse when your traveling on a carbon-fiber super-scooter at 15mph. Swagtron have done everyone a service by bringing us this super hi-tech model at such a great price. No Ferrari? No it’s a Swagtron and I have change to spare!
