In a hurry? The Test Winner after 39 Hrs of Research
The story of e-scooters started off slow. It came in as a toy for kids and adults to pass time in a fun way. But the advances in technology soon reflected in the e-scooter market. Things changed pretty quickly. Now, e-scooters are looked at as an alternative medium of transport. It’s eco-friendly, energy efficient, safe, portable and most importantly, it is a source of simple joy.
That brings us to today’s topic. We are here with the Top Ten Fastest Electric Scooters in 2019. We picked them keeping in mind the needs of our readers and have tried to cover most of the different scooters out there so that all our readers find their right one irrespective of the budget. We have also compiled a list of Best Electric Scooters for commuting available in 2019 here.
Let’s get started…
1) NanRobot LS7 -
NanRobot is a Chinese Bicycle and Scooter manufacturer that has been in the market for a while now. Their abundance of experience clearly shows up in their products.
Top Speed- 50 MPH
Range- 60 Miles
The LS7 is NanRobot’s flagship product. It wouldn’t be fair comparing it with most other scooters on this list. Neither the prices are comparable nor the performance. The simultaneous action of the dual-drive motor produces a 3600watt power that enables the LS7 to hit the 52 mph mark making it the fastest bike on this list. Its sibling, the NanRobot RS11 claims to reach a top speed of 55 mph. But what makes us choose the LS7 over it is the torque on this product. While most scooters struggle climbing uphill, the LS7 does it effortlessly.
This scooter is built to last. Like most of their products, NanRobot keeps the design simple with the LS7. The LS7 is top-class when it comes to comfort. The highlight would be the pneumatic (air-filled) tyres and front-rear rubber suspensions. The dual hydraulic disk brakes on the LS7 should be enough to give you the confidence to get everything out of this beast and touch that top speed.
- The powerful battery keeps you going for a good 60 miles on a single 5-hour charge.
- It weighs around 84 lbs and can bear a load of up to 330 lbs.
- The [1800watt x 2] dual-drive motor
- LCD speedometer with power ON/OFF
- Powerful LED headlights and brake lights.
- USB charging functionality.
- A removable hub motor, making maintenance easy.
- Water-Proof (IP6). That means the scooter can handle heavy sprays of water.
- Easy and a Rigid folding mechanism.
- Integrating with dealers and agents worldwide has made purchasing the NanRobot possible outside of China.
Final Verdict !
The first thing that pops up in your mind would be “Is this bike really worth that money?”. Well, we would like to help you answer that. The LS7 is not one of those “commuter’s” or “last-mile journey” scooters.
This is meant for people who are looking for an alternate medium for transport. People who travel a lot running errands will find this extremely useful. The build and the battery is made long-lasting for this very reason. And of course, all the scooter enthusiasts out there will find riding this machine very thrilling and exciting (50 mph on a scooter? It’s insane!).
2. Dualtron Thunder Electric Scooter-
Dualtron is known for setting new standards when it comes to scooters. The quality, capability and long-range that the Dualtron Thunder offers is almost unmatched.
Top Speed : 50 MPH
Range : 74 Miles
The Dualtron thunder is the most gorgeous scooter in the market. Period. The performance on this scooter is almost comparable with gas-powered bikes. So naturally, the price also is similar. The dual motors produce a maximum wattage of 5400W (dual motors rated 2,700W each). That makes it absolutely perfect for any kind of slope or terrain. The scooter is on the heavier side weighing a good 95 lbs. The weight provides more stability of the scooter at high speeds. It offers a range of 74 miles on a full charge ( which can take 4-20 hours depending on the charger ). The top speed of 50 mph lets you rip through the traffic and reach your destination in no time.
According to us, the build quality on the Dualtron is better than the LS7. The frame and handle are made of aluminium alloymaking it sturdy and light. The 11-inch ultra-wide pneumatic tyre makes balancing easy while the rubber suspension ensures a comfortable ride. Long story short: There is nothing that this scooter lacks.
- All Dualtron scooters come with ABS brakes and adjustable suspension.
- Climbing Grade: 47% or 25 degrees depending on rider weight and state of charge
- Waterproof (IP54)
- A metallic case for the battery.
- LED lighting. Both front and rear.
- Brilliant DashBoard: LCD speedometer with cruise control and electric brakes.
The Dualtron Thunder is easily the best performing adult electric scooter in the market. But again, not a scooter for short distance commuters. If you could afford this price and can handle the weight, this scooter is the ultimate answer to your search.
3) Speedway 5 Electric Scooter -
Speedway Electric Scooters, by Mini Motors, make trusted and reliable entry-level scooters that are being used by many scooter sharing services across the US.
Top Speed : 40 MPH
Range : 60 Miles
Just like the Dualtron, the S5 uses a dual hub motor to offer a power of 3600W. It uses the best-in-class 23.4 Ah battery to give you a mileage of around 60 miles. The speed you can achieve on the S5 is around 40 mph depending on the rider and the terrain.
The Speedway S5 is a toned down version of the Dualtron Thunder. The build is similar (though not as sturdy as the Thunder) and so is the working. The 70 lbs machine is easier (comparatively) to carry around and can be safely locked using an optional fingerprint feature. One of its main highlight is the dual air spring suspension which makes riding the S5 super comfortable.
Now, if you are a person who likes multiple lights on your vehicle, which definitely makes it look cooler, then this would be a great choice. The Speedway 5 comes standard with headlights, tail lights, side lights, and even LED Logo mood lighting. This sure is going to brighten up those night rides.
- You have a quick charger option available to get your refuelling done in under 4 hours.
- The LCD throttle houses all your settings and shows you everything you would want to know about your scooter.
- It comes in dual colours, black and white.
- Climbing Grade: 37% depending on rider weight and state of charge.
- The wheel is separate from the hub motor. This makes repairing your scooter very convenient.
Final Verdict !
This scooter is the perfect choice for anybody who is looking for a high-performance machine without having shell out as much as. Again a scooter meant for long-range applications. The battery on this is really impressive and so is the performance. All this makes the Speedway S5 one of the most value-for-money products on this list.
4) NanRobot D4+
D4+ is the second NanRobot on this list. Although not as quick as its sibling (the LS7 ), the D4+ has got a lot to offer. The impressive23Ah lithium battery ensures you get maximum usage time on your D4+.
Top Speed : 30 MPH
Range : 30 Miles
The 2000W dual motor powers the scooter to a whopping 37mph top speed making it a scooter, not for the faint-hearted.
Though the company claims a range of 45 miles, the reviews on Amazon suggest a range of around 30 miles inside the city. The10-inch pneumatic tyres ensure a slip-free ride while the 6 shock absorbers on scooter promise a smooth and comfortable riding experience.
The front-rear mudguards and the LED head-tail lights make the scooter suitable for any time of the day or year. It comes with IP53 protection which means that usage during heavy rainfall is not recommended.
- Front and rear dual disk brakes.
- Uses brushless motors making it less noisy and offering more torque.
- The Speedshift is three-staged making the scooter more controllable.
Final Verdict !
The NanRobot D4+ is a well-built, strong performing scooter. This scooter was designed to run fast and to run far. This is perfect for a person who is looking for something that can take them around the city pretty quickly. The D4+ can be used as the last mile commuting machine but is not really suggested.
Daily users will find this bike more useful as it delivers decent performance over a longer range. Also, weighing a good 60 lbs makes this scooter something that you wouldn’t prefer carrying around. But all said, the D4+ is fairly priced and does justice to what it promises.
5) Quiewa Q1 Hummer
Quiewa is a Taiwanese manufacturer whose product, the Q1 Hummer, has been making noise in the scooter market for a while now. Not sure why it is called a Hummer but we are guessing that Quiewa is trying to say something about the scooter’s build quality. This is a strongly built scooter that looks classic and durable.
Top Speed : 35 Miles
Range : 60 Miles
The 800W motor provides enough torque to make the Q1 Hummer suitable for any conditions. The top speed of 35 mphmakes it the fastest scooter available at this price range. Online feedback suggests that the scooter delivers as promised. Its got a26Ah battery that survives long enough to give you a good 40-50 mile range. The tyres are 10 inches wide but are not tubeless. This is not really a problem as users have found the bike to perform really well on all kinds of terrains.
The scooter folds up pretty quickly and can be carried around without any struggle. The dual shock absorbers and disk brakesmake the Q1 hummer very controllable and smooth.
- Brake light comes with the bike ( Other lights need to be purchased ).
- It’s IP56 rated, making it rideable even when raining.
- USB mobile phone charging feature.
Final Verdict !
The Quiewa Q1 Hummer is the fastest budget electric bike on this list. It can be used for the short rides but we would recommend it to people who require daily usage. That’s when you would be really appreciating the quality and performance of this little beast. Also, Quiewa has dealers in the US making local services available and easy.
6) Speedway Mini 4 PRO
The MiniMotors USA came up with the Speedway Mini 4 Pro with a goal to bring their features to a wider audience. With this scooter, you get top-notch features at fairly affordable pricing.
Top Speed : 28 MPH
Range : 40 Miles
The Mini 4 PRO is fitted with a 500W motor that can shuttle you along at a speed of 28MPH with ease. The minimalistic looks and durable build makes this scooter a real charmer. The most important highlight of this scooter is its weight. Weighing just around 35 lbs, the Mini 4 PRO delivers a power-weight ratio that is rare to find.
It can give you a 45-mile range easily. The front tyre is inflatable and the rear has shocks, so it makes for a very smooth ride. Another feature to look out for would be theregenerative braking. The Speedway Mini 4 Pro has regenerative brakes so you get some charge back in your batteries when you are going downhill.
- DURABLE, RELIABLE, AND LIGHTWEIGHT.
- Climbing Grade: 27% depending on rider weight and state of charge.
- Dual suspension for bumpy roads.
- Front and rear LED lighting. There is plenty of space for additional lighting too.
Final Verdict !
Now, if you are somebody who is looking for a true performer that is lightweight, fast and beautiful, look no further, this is the most stylish and lightweight electric scooter. The Mini 4 Pro gives you all of this at a fairly decent amount. The waterproofing and hill climbing on this might not be very great but besides that we don’t see why anybody wouldn’t like this beauty.
7) Uberscoot 1600W
The Uberscoot has been a popular scooter in the market for some time now. This is again a mid-range scooter that promises premium performance. The overall system that UberScoot uses might be a little old, but its still giving a hard time to competitors in this price range.
Top Speed : 20 MPH
Range : 12 Miles
Powered by a brushless 1600W motor, the UberScoot 1600w Electric Scooter delivers over two horsepower.. The UberScoot 1600w rockets you to a top speed of 20 mph and offers an average range of 12 miles. You can extend your range by activating “Economy Mode”.
This handy feature partially restricts the scooter’s acceleration and the top speed in order to save up more battery for those long rides. Other great features include a quick release seat (Yes, comes with the scooter), a folding mechanism that quickly and easily allows you to pack it away. The dual disk brakes and the key ignition feature makes the Uberscoot a safety enabled scooter.
- The large 11-inch knobby lets you take on any terrain.
- BMX style handlebars
- One touch easy folding frame with advanced ‘Posi Lock’ folding/locking system.
- Front and rear lights to keeping your midnight rides well illuminated
Final Verdict !
The Uberscoot is a bang-on product for its price. It’s an allrounder that gives you everything at a decent price. We suggest this scooter to people who are looking for a rugged, fast and low-budget scooter for daily usage. The only downside that we see is its weight. 117 lbs make this scooter very hard to carry around ( uses a Lead acid battery that is pretty heavy ). If you can manage that, then this is a wonderful product.
8) EcoReco S5
EcoReco is a fairly new brand that has been gaining some popularity lately. Their goal is to save the environment by usage of their energy efficient and pollution free scooters for covering short distances.
Top Speed : 20 MPH
Range : 10 Miles
It makes use of a fairly powerful 600W motor that claims the ability to run for 500 miles on $1. The scooter is very agile and comfortable, offering speeds up to 20MPH. The S5 gives a range of 10-20 miles per charge.
The EcoReco is all lightweight and heavy duty. The bike is made very compact in order to reduce its weight to a mere 28 lbs. The strong aircraft aluminium chassis helps achieve a good load capacity of 250 lbs despite the lack of weight. The narrower deck may seem uncomfortable for a few but works fine. It comes with arear LED brake light that gets brighter when the hand brake is applied. This smart scooter comes with a smart energy-recovering braking system.
- It takes 2.5 hours to 60% and 4.5 hours to full.
- Easily adjustable handlebars let you change the handle height whenever you feel like.

- The scooter has an open section for using a chain, cable, or u-lock to securely lock the frame.
- An LCD display that is backlit, easy to read, and provides multiple readouts from graphical and numerical speed, battery level, trip distance, overall distance, and charge cycles.
Final Verdict !
The EcoReco S5 is a wonderful product to own. It offers the perfect balance among performance, weight, and features for your everyday usage. The only worry is the lack of space that some users might face due to its compactness. The suspension could’ve been better too. There are other bikes that perform better than the S5 at the same price but what makes us choose the S5 is the small yet handy features it comes with. It makes the whole experience smooth and effortless. Also, it fits in car trunks, gym lockers, and under chairs. This is an e-scooter made for the youth. Simply beautiful.
9) Glion Dolly Foldable Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter
The Glion Dolly is a scooter built with a vision to coast through the city on the most portable, reliable and energy efficient last mile solution.
Top Speed : 15 MPH

10) XPRIT Folding Electric Kick Scooter
The goal of XPRIT is to provide quality products at a low price. That is the exact reason why we have the XPRIT foldable on our list. This bike is not really comparable with the others in terms of speed and performance, but anybody who is on a tight budget should definitely take a look at this.
