There are few feelings better than zipping around on a high-performance electric scooter. Whether you’re racing to work in the morning or going for a spin on the weekend, it’s always fun to have some turbo in the tank, ready to be unleashed at any moment.
In 2022, adrenaline junkies now have more options than ever when it comes to ultra-fast electric scooters. Record top speeds are being broken every few months, and it’s now common to find commercial scooters that comfortably push beyond scorching speeds of 60mph.
Of course, measuring top speeds is never an exact science. Numbers vary based on a host of factors including rider weight and road surface. While the entrants in this list are ranked based on their manufacturers’ calculations, we’ve also included real-world estimates for reference.
Some of the names from last year’s roundup retain their spot this time around, but you’ll also notice some new kids on the block. So let’s dive in—here are the 20 fastest electric scooters you can buy in 2022!

- Single 600W rear motor
- 25mph top speed
- 40 mile range
- 7 – 8 hours charging time
- Weighs 47 lbs
The Inokim Quick 4 electric scooter is an ideal commuter scooter, bringing together a stylish design with power, speed, range, and easy of portability and use.
Powered by a 52V Samsung 16Ah battery and 600W motor, you can enjoy excellent torque and acceleration to reach a top speed of 25mph. The battery can fully recharge in 7 – 8 hours, ideal for charging overnight or even topping up while you’re at work. In addition to the brilliant performance the Inokim Quick 4 delivers, it’s a hugely convenient machine if you take part of your journey to work in the car or public transport. Fold your scooter down or put it up in seconds, and take advantage of its small fold size and relatively light weight to easily carry it or place it in a luggage store for your trip.
The 10-inch x 2.5-inch pneumatic tyres combine brilliantly with the dual damper suspension to make your ride a smooth one, even when you take your scooter off-road. In addition, the dual drum brakes give you superior stopping power when you unleash the full power of the Quick 4.
You should be able to get a range of up to 40 miles out of this scooter on gentle terrain and be aiming more realistically for around 25 miles if your journey includes hills or off-road sections.
The bright user display in the centre of the handlebars tells you everything you need to know about your trip, including speed, acceleration, remaining battery, and mileage covered. The Quick 4 allows you to choose from three speed settings via the display, with a cruise control option once you’ve reached a speed you’re happy with.
A comfortable, quick, and stylish scooter ideal for helping you get to and from work!
19. WideWheel Pro – 26 mph top speed
- Dual 500W motors
- 26mph top speed
- 22 mile range
- Weighs 55 lbs
If you’re familiar with the WideWheel, the appearance of the WideWheel Pro will truly make you feel like you’re looking at its big brother! With a reinforced design from the original, bigger battery, extra power, a larger display, and the addition of dual brakes, the WideWheel Pro packs a punch that is sure to make you feel exhilarated when riding.
Like the original WideWheel, the WideWheel Pro is powered by dual 500W motors. However, the top speed improves slightly to 26mph owing to the bigger battery pack on this model. The torque and acceleration from the motors give you a quick yet smooth ride, and will keep you moving over hilly terrain, with the ability to tackle gradients up to 30%! On top of the power, the ultra-wide airless tyres combine brilliantly with the front and rear suspension, while the redesigned frame on the WideWheel Pro means you have stability and durability from your ride in all conditions. The WideWheel Pro has also upped its game when it comes to safety, now featuring dual 120mm disc brakes and improves front and rear lights.
In terms of range, you can expect a maximum of 22 miles from a single charge, although with ECO mode you might be able to stretch that to a brilliant 30 miles if you’re travelling across flat terrain. The intuitive smart display tells you everything you need to know while riding your WideWheel Pro, including speed, mileage, and power usage. You can also change gears easily or activate cruise control at the touch of a button, ideal for enjoying your commute!
Stylish and powerful, the WideWheel Pro will bring a sense of freedom and wonder whether you’ll use it for commuting or weekend trips around town.
18. Qiewa Q1 Hummer – 35 mph top speed
Qiewa Q1 Hummer
- 800 Watt motor
- 35mph top speed
- 60 mile max range
- Weighs 60 lbs
The Qiewa 800W is a super fast electric scooter that can can reach a top speed of over 35 mph! It’s made by a Taiwanese manufacturer and these heavy duty scooters can outperform almost all other scooters on the market. Not only is it one of the best high speed electric scooters, but it also has a lot of other features that make it well worth buying. For example, it has a maximum range of up to 60 miles! It also has plenty of features that make it road ready, such as full front and rear suspension, front and rear disc brakes, LED headlights, taillights and even side lights. The Qiewa also includes a horn, keyless entry remote and an alarm system to keep it as safe as possible.
The build quality of the Qiewa is also really good. It’s made from high strength aluminum and has an IP6 waterproof rating. It can also be folded to be taken with you or stored easily. All of this combines together to not only offer one of the best fast electric scooters, but just one of the best electric scooters in general. If you’re looking for something a little less, that’s a bit better for commuting, then Qiewa also offer a Qmini model that takes the best parts of this scooter and just scales everything down to make it easier for the morning commute.
17. Nanrobot D5+ – 40 mph top speed
- Dual brushless 1000W motors
- 40mph top speed
- 50 mile range
- 10 – 12 hours charging time
- Weighs 71 lbs
The Nanrobot D5+ electric scooter is a brilliant, high performance machine. This scooter is ideal if you’re looking to combine a high top speed with long range and comfort, whether you’re commuting or using your Nanrobot D5+ to get around your neighbourhood.
Powered by dual drive, brushless 1000W motors, the acceleration on this scooter is among the best we’ve seen while retaining a smooth drive, and you can reach the top speed of 40 mph in no time at all. As well as delivering top end acceleration and speed performance, the dual motors also allow you to tackle hills with ease and maintain momentum whatever the road conditions. The 10-inch pneumatic tyres are designed to give you the ultimate in comfort, traction, and power efficiency from your ride, and combine with the dual suspension brilliantly to help you deal with asphalt and cobblestone surfaces effortlessly. As well as unleashing the power of this scooter to hit the top speed, the Nanrobot D5+ makes it easy and efficient to slow down, too, with dual disc brakes that are easy to control from the handlebars.
With a range of 50 miles, if you only have a short commute you can easily get a few days’ journeys out of your scooter without the need for a recharge. If you find yourself fully out of juice, the 10 – 12 hours needed for a full recharge makes it easy for you to power up your battery overnight ready for the next day’s journey. Ensure you choose your riding modes to suit your usage; you might get longer out of ECO mode, whereas TURBO mode will get you moving quicker but will have a bigger impact on your battery, too.
Although the Nanrobot D5+ is heavy in comparison to other models, it folds down quickly and into a relatively small package, making it easy to store in your car or on public transport.
16. Speedway 5 – 40 mph top speed
- Max 3600W dual hub motor
- 40mph top speed
- 75 mile range
- 4 hours charge time with quick charger, 7 hours charge time with two standard chargers, 4 hours charge time with one standard charger
- Weighs 70 lbs
This model is the first time a Speedway electric scooter comes with dual motors as standard. As well as being a step up in power from the Speedway 4, the Speedway 5 has seen changes to its design, too, with a strengthened aviation grade aluminium alloy frame aligning with the extra power you get with this ride.
With a dual hub BLDC motor delivering max power of 3600W, with a Speedway 5 you can enjoy incredible acceleration, a top speed of 40mph, and the capability to tackle hilly terrain up to gradients of 37%! The maximum range of 75 miles is hugely impressive, and depending on the road conditions you might be able to travel even further thanks to the regenerative dual braking system, which extends your battery life as well as keeping you safe on the road.
While you’ll need 13 hours to get a full standard charge of your Speedway 5 battery, a fast charging unit will power you up in just four hours and should give you more than enough juice for a single journey.
As well as giving you power in abundance, the Speedway 5 delivers a hugely smooth and comfortable ride, with dual air spring suspension meaning you can absorb substantial shocks even when travelling at top speed. The suspension is complemented by the tubeless tyres, which while robust are also part of an easy wheel system making changes and repairs easy if you ever need to make them.
The Speedway 5 is great for riding whenever you need to travel, but its appearance and design really come to life at night. Featuring head, rear, and side lights for safety, you also get LED Logo mood lighting to show the world how you’re feeling during your journey!
The LCD dashboard and throttle make it easy to control your scooter whilst on the move, allowing you to change power modes as well as view performance data for your Speedway 5.
15. Mantis PRO – 40 mph top speed
- 2x 1000 Watt motors
- 40mph top speed
- 45+ miles on one charge
- Weighs 65 lbs
- 13 – 16 hr charge time
The Mantis PRO comes with a top speed up to 40mph, great specs and features such as motor torque adjustments, dual suspension, full hydraulic dual braking disc system and air filled tires (10″ x 2,5), making it a comfortable ride over a wide variety of terrain.
The Mantis PRO has dual 1000 Watt motors, and you can choose to use one or both motors depending on how far and fast you’d like to go, changing the number of motors from the cockpit as well as choosing between eco and normal mode, meaning that you can adjust the power when you’re in a city to make it more manageable, or put it in turbo mode when you want to go exploring. With both motors turned on the Mantis PRO accelerates really fast and climbs inclines up to 35% with ease!
With a weight of 65 pounds this scooter is lighter than most other electric scooters with similar specs, and while carrying 65 pounds for a long period of time is still no fun, the foldable design means it can be carried in one hand if needed. Two front and rear led lights as well as led stripes on the sides make you easily see and be seen at nights. The Minimotors display is large and bright but for our taste it does stick a bit too much out of the general seamless design of the scooter, but as mentioned this is really a matter of taste.
This Mantis PRO is great for commuting, but it really comes into its own on the weekend, when you can zip around town before going out into the countryside to explore dirt roads and really have some fun. The scooter feels stable at high speeds and the dual suspension means that you can take the scooter on almost all surfaces, which makes it a perfect all-round electric scooter.
14. Inokim OxO – 40 mph top speed
- Dual 1000W motors
- 40mph top speed
- 36 mile range
- 12 – 14 hours charging time with standard charger
- Weighs 74 lbs
What are you looking for from your electric scooter? If you want power and design aligned with superior ride quality, the Inokim OxO is well worth your consideration.
The most powerful Inokim e-scooter currently available, the OxO harnesses the power of dual 1000W motors to deliver slick acceleration and a top speed of 40mph. The 26Ah LH battery can deliver a range of up to 50 miles if you ride your scooter at slower speeds, but the 36 miles you’ll get while using more of your OxO’s power is impressive all the same.
What brings this scooter into its own is the ability to be ridden both on and off-road, thanks to the pneumatic tyres and adjustable suspension. Whether you’re commuting entirely within the confines of a town or city, or heading on an off-road adventure, this scooter is robust enough to take you wherever you want to go!
From a safety perspective, the hydraulic disc brakes mean you can ride at top speed in confidence you’ll come to a timely stop when you need to. Furthermore, front and rear LED’s make you visible at night or in poorly lit daytime conditions, with plenty of space on the stem to add an additional headlight if you wish.
The OxO delivers an exceptional handling and all-round riding experience, with a wide deck enabling a comfortable stance, and thumb controlled throttle making it easy to ride for even hours at a time. While the new design sees the OxO come in at a weight of 74 lbs, you can still fold it down quickly and easily store it during a non-riding phase of your journey.
13. Dualtron Thunder – 50 mph top speed
- 5400 Watt dual hub motors
- 50mph top speed
- 75 mile max range
- Weighs 95 lbs
The Dualtron Thunder is claimed to be the best performing electric scooter in the world. And from our research that seems to be about right. The only reason it isn’t in the 1st position is because the next scooter is just a tad faster, however the Dualtron Thunder has a notably better maximum range at a staggering 75 miles! The specs of the Thunder are as impressive across the board. The 60 volt, 35 AH battery can be charged in around 5 hours with the Dualtron quick charging kit and the scooter can climb a very impressive 47% hill. It’s not just the power and battery that are worth mentioning, the entire scooter is incredibly well made, with some of the best materials and features you will find anywhere. For example, the braking system uses hydraulic brakes with ABS as standard and 160mm disks and the frame and handle are aviation grade 6082-T6 aluminum alloy with the shaft being made from SCM440 steel, and plastic covers.
If you’re looking for one of the absolute highest quality and best performing electric scooters then the Dualtron Thunder is the one to get.
We’ve recently released an article looking at all of Dualtrons range of scooters, including the new Dualtron X! Check it out here.
12. Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11 – 50 mph top speed
Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11
- 5400 Watt dual hub motors
- 50mph top speed
- 80 mile max range
- Weighs 101 lbs
Tied for our number 2 spot is the Kaabo Wolf Warrior. This is a beast of a scooter that is very simmilarly specced to the Dualtron Thunder. The differences that make this stand out is that there are different tire types, one set for street riding and another for off-roading. It also has a slightly better range of 80 miles, rather than 75. But what we really love about scooter is that it is about $700 dollar cheaper than that Dualtron Thunder! Not only this, but it is currently $200 dollars off at FluidFreeRide and they’ll even throw in an extra charger and FREE SHIPPING to continental US.
This is a high speed electric scooter designed for the ultimate on or off road experience. It can reach 50 mph and delivers insane acceleration (road tires recommended for high speed road use). The 35Ah LG battery can last for 80 miles on single charge with eco mode but also delivers a good range for the high speed rides where you’ll be hitting it’s top speed. Its motorcycle grade inverted hydraulic front shock absorbers and rear spring brake allow for a comfortable and safe ride on any terrain. Full hydraulic brakes in combination with an ABS system provide for safe and accurate braking power. It’s not all power though, the Wolf Warrior also offers some utility. It has powerful dual front LEDs that can light up the night and side and rear LEDs ensure optimal visibility from any direction in addition to extra safety.
While the Wolf Warrior’s 101 pounds of weight is certainly not made for portability, it nevertheless folds down for easy transport in your trunk to travel to your favorite off road spots.
In addition to all of this, it has only 7-8h charging time with a second 2A charger that is being included as introductory offer by FluidFreeRide.
If you’re looking for one of the all round best and fastest electric scooters to show off to your friends, then this is the scooter for you.
11. Nanrobot RS7 – 55 mph top speed
- 2x 1600 Watt motors
- 55mph top speed
- 55 mile max range
- Weighs 88.2 lbs
Now onto the fastest electric scooter that you can buy right now. If you’re looking for the absolute quickest electric scooter then the Nanrobot RS7 is the one you need to buy. It has an insane top speed of 55 mph due to its dual 1600 W motors. It’s maximum range is 55 miles, which is very impressive but is 20 miles less than the Dualtron Thunder. It can, however, climb hills of up to 65 degrees. Another place the Nanrobot really shines is its build quality and features. Its big and looks a bit brash but is made from high quality aluminum and steel with a fairly nice black and red finish. It has hydraulic shock absorption, a wear resistant tire and even has high power LED headlights, is foldable and has a kickstand. This means, that although this is built for performance and a high top speed, it still has the practicality of some scooters that are built specifically for commuting. For more info on Nanrobot as a company, check out their profile on our Complete Guide to Electric Scooters.
This isn’t the only Nanrobot scooter that could have made it onto this list, but for the sake of variety we’ve decided to just include their best. Their other products include the very popular D4+ which is more of a mid range scooter but can still manage a top speed of 40mph! All of Nanrobot’s scooters tend to be positively reviewed and offer some of the best value for money out there.
10. NAMI Burn-E – 60mph top speed
- 2 x 1500W motors
- 72V 32Ah battery
- 60mph max speed
- 90 miles max range
- 6 hour charge time
- 47kg weight
Priced very reasonably, the NAMI Burn-E (a.k.a the ‘Viper’) punches well above its weight, rivaling many of the premium names at the other end of this list in terms of specs. There’s a strong case that dollar-for-dollar, this monstrous machine is the pick of the bunch.
Let’s start with those mouth-watering performance numbers. A max range of 90 miles is tough to top anywhere; you’ll be riding for hours before the huge 72V 35Ah Panasonic battery needs to be topped up.
The Burn-E is also one of the fastest electric scooters money can buy. Its advertised top speed of 60mph is no exaggeration; it really can race beyond the dizzy heights of 55mph under favorable conditions. The Viper’s acceleration is also among the best on the market.
Ride quality is another area difficult to find fault with. The responsive throttle allows you to really set the tempo and find your rhythm. Spacious decking and smooth suspension also help to maximize rider comfort.
Braking is a crucial feature of any high-speed vehicle, and here the Burn-E once again rises to the occasion. The Nutt hydraulic brakes deliver excellent stopping power, and this certainly helps you to feel that little bit safer when maxing out the electric scooter.
9. Outstorm MAXX Pro – 56mph top speed
Outstorm MAXX Pro
- 2 x 1600W motors
- 60V 25Ah battery
- 56mph max speed
- 53 miles max range
- 7-9 hour charge time
- 46kg weight
The Outstorm MAXX Pro has been around for a little while now, but it’s yet to be displaced from the top 20 list. As one of the cheapest models here, it’s also well worth your attention. But don’t be fooled by the lowly price tag: the MAXX Pro can go toe-to-toe with any electric scooter.
The first thing to note is that the MAXX Pro is known primarily for its offroad capabilities. Equipped with rugged tires, IP65 water resistance, and shock-absorbing suspension, the scooter handles all terrains without breaking a sweat.
But it’s also a beast on the open road, where you’ll get to make the most of its 1600W twin motors and 55mph top speeds. A sizeable max range of 53 miles is likewise impressive, and makes the scooter a genuine candidate for everyday commutes and long trips.
The MAXX Pro’s power is palpable from the off, with decent acceleration despite the scooter’s chunk frame and gravity-defying hill-climbing abilities that will make you the envy of weary pedestrians.
It’s complete with an array of thoughtful design features including a horn, compass, USB port, and sophisticated light system. Most components are also adjustable, enabling riders of all sizes to feel at home behind the handlebars.
Looks are subjective, of course, but this isn’t the most visually appealing scooter. It’s also a heavy-duty machine that weighs in at a cumbersome 46kg—don’t expect to be able to carry it without considerable discomfort.
8. Zero 11X – 60mph top speed
- 2 x 1600W motor
- 72V 31.5Ah battery
- 60mph max speed
- 90 miles max range
- 15 hour charge time
- 59kg weight
The Zero 11X is built like a tank and packed with some serious specs. It pushes the boundaries of performance in virtually all areas. Notably, it’s the first name on the list to break the 60mph mark (in practice, the 11X will hit highs of around 55mph).
If you could sum up the 11X in one word, it would be power. The scooter’s acceleration is a pleasant surprise given its colossal weight; it picks up pace in seconds once the throttle is squeezed.
You’ll also be able to feel the full force of the twin motors when scaling an incline—the 11X’s hill-climbing capability is unrivaled at this price point. Another standout is the max range of 90 miles, though this is probably closer to 60 miles in the real world.
While this scooter is primed for city riding, it’s arguably less suited to offroad terrain than some of the other heavy-duty models in this list. Its chunky tires and smooth suspension hit the mark, but a lack of water resistance makes the 11X a no-go for muddy trail riding.
Another drawback is that unwieldy 59kg weight. You certainly won’t be carrying this scooter up a set of stairs or loading it into the back of a car. If you can live with that, then the 11X is a great scooter.
7. Dualtron Thunder 2 – 60mph top speed
Dualtron Thunder 2
- 2 x 2700W motors
- 72V 40Ah battery
- 105 miles max range
- 60 mph max speed
- 26 hour charge time
- 47kg weight
The Thunder 2 is the updated, turbo-charged version of Minimotors’ much-revered Thunder model. Somehow, the manufacturer manages to surpass what was already a boundary-breaking electric scooter.
The first thing to note is the Thunder 2’s speed upgrade. For the real adrenaline junkies, a peak power of more than 10,000W is available whenever you feel brave enough to activate the new double-click throttle. On full blast, the Thunder 2 will reach about 55mph.
Another highlight is the lung-busting 105 miles max range. In reality, this is around 60 miles per charge—that’s easily one of the furthest distances of any scooter on the market today.
The next upgrade of interest is the new flat-proof pneumatic tires, which offer added traction when traveling at those blood-curdling top speeds. These are complemented by dual rubber suspension and trusty Nutt hydraulic brakes to create a secure ride.
For a scooter with this much muscle, grip tape on the deck would be preferable, though this can easily be added by the rider. The double-click throttle will also take some getting used to as you learn to live with its titanic power.
6. Turbowheel Phaeton – 60mph top speed
- 2 x 1600W motors
- 72V 45Ah battery
- 60mph max speed
- 80 miles max range
- 4 hour charge time
- 59kg weight
The Turbowheel Phaeton is another beast of a scooter, carefully constructed with speed demons in mind. The performance specs are monstrous, but like many other entrants in this list, portability suffers.
With muscular dual motors and a bullish 72V 45Ah battery, it’s no surprise that you get great acceleration, power, and stamina on this machine. Hills are handled with casual ease. On the open road, you can reach sizzling speeds of around 55mph.
The Phaeton also boasts an enviable ride quality. Dual hydraulic brakes, equipped with electronic braking functionality, provide all the stopping power you could ever need. The handling is noticeably responsive and the suspension provides good stability too.
One fairly unique feature is the scooter’s dual-bar stem. This gives the rider more space to attach extra accessories and add to what is already a feature-packed frame, which comes with a built-in damper for added shock absorption and a reliable kickstand.
The Phaeton’s versatility does come at a cost, however. At 59kg, scooters don’t come much heavier than this. To make matters worse, the folding mechanism is a headache to operate. If you need to regularly transport your scooter, look elsewhere.
5. Dualtron Storm – 62mph top speed
- 2 x 3320W motors
- 72V 31.5Ah battery
- 62mph max speed
- 80 miles max range
- 10 hour charge time
- 46kg weight
There’s a reason why more Minimotors scooters appear in this list than any other manufacturer; the company knows how to craft a high-performance electric ride, and it does it well. The Dualtron Storm is the perfect example of that.
Not only does the Storm boast frightening speeds that will take you close to the 55mph mark, but it also has one of the strongest ranges on the market. You should be able to get about 45 miles of juice even without riding particularly conservatively.
If you want to extend that, you can always bring a second battery. The scooter’s removable battery feature is a real selling point, allowing riders to effectively double their range by replacing the first battery when it runs low.
The Storm is also a lot of fun to use, and not just because of its monstrous performance specs. The adjustable rubber suspension, grippy deck, and vibrant LED light system bring security and style to the party.
It’s hard to find faults with the scooter, but if you’re a tall rider, you may have some discomfort handling the relatively low stem. Like many of the other names on this list, it isn’t particularly light either.
4. Kaabo Wolf King GT – 62mph top speed
Kaabo Wolf King GT
- 2 x 2000W motors
- 72V 35Ah battery
- 62mph max speed
- 90 miles max range
- 13-15 hour charge time
- 52kg weight
The Wolf King is Kaabo’s flagship model and the GT is its most powerful iteration yet. Exceptional performance, world-class build quality, and a highly competitive price tag make this scooter worthy of consideration for any premium buyer.
Range and top speed are the first two things that jump out. The Wolf King GT really is true to its advertised top speed, pushing beyond the 60mph mark under favorable conditions. The range falls slightly short at a real-world estimate of around 55 miles, which is nevertheless remarkable.
Kaboo has made about a dozen upgrades on the GT, but few are more valuable than the progressive throttle control. This helps to tame the scooter’s immense power, bringing a much-needed sense of smoothness to the Wolf King GT’s whirlwind acceleration.
Unsurprisingly, the GT crushes hills with ease and its Zoom hydraulic brakes provide serious stopping power. Puncture-proof pneumatic tires and brand-new IPX5 water resistance mean you can hit the trails with confidence.
Thoughtful display features and a state-of-the-art light system round off what is an incredible piece of engineering. Something has to give, of course, and it’s the Wolf King GT’s portability that suffers.
3. Dualtron X2 – 68mph top speed
- 2 x 4150W motors
- 72V 42Ah battery
- 68mph max speed
- 80 miles max range
- 10 hour charge time
- 66kg weight
As commercial scooters go, they don’t get much better than the Dualtron X2. This heavyweight beast covers all bases for those with a bottomless budget: speed, range, functionality, and versatility.
Minimotors made sure to pull out all the stops for performance on this one, equipping the X2 with the highest-spec motors and battery around. Top speeds well above 60mph won’t be bested unless you look at racing scooters. A real-world range of about 45 miles is another major plus.
No corners are cut on the ride quality either. The adjustable hydraulic suspension absorbs bumps for fun while the front and rear brakes bring blistering speeds down to a halt within a few feet.
The scooter’s ultra-wide tubeless tires are also top of the range. Grippy and firm, they’re perfectly suitable for off-road riders that are ritually drawn to trails and other types of rough terrain.
If you’re only here for performance, look no further than the X2. However, if portability is a requirement, you’ll need to consider other options. As the heaviest scooter in this list, it’s only viable for ground-level storage.
2. Weped SST – 80mph top speed
- 72V 45Ah battery
- 80 miles max range
- 80mph max speed
- 5 hour charge time
- 60kg weight
The Weped SST is no normal electric scooter. This racing machine is designed specifically to tear up the track at hair-raising speeds; it’s certainly not the kind of scooter you use to travel to the grocery store.
From the off, the SST’s acceleration blows you away. In under seven seconds, you can expect to hit 60mph—that’s fast enough to challenge some gas-powered cars! If you’re feeling especially brave, this racing scooter will take you up to 75mph.
Fortunately, the SST has the stopping power to match its frightening pace. Weped has opted to use its brand of brakes on this electric scooter and they hold up well without generating any jerky feedback, even when decelerating from breakneck speeds.
Wide tires and dual suspension handle small road imperfections, but the SST isn’t recommended for rougher terrains such as grass or mud trails. Ultimately, It’s made for the race track; if you’re after a commuter scooter, look elsewhere.
Nonetheless, the scooter still has a lot to offer beyond its searing speed. It’s well-built and offers great range, which is handy considering ultra-fast scooters eat through their battery like nobody’s business. Overall, the SST is a fine piece of engineering.
1. Rion RE90 – 100mph top speed
Rion RE 90
- 6V 30Ah battery
- 60 miles max range
- 100mph max speed
- 5 hour charge time
- 31kg weight
Known to many as ‘the Bugatti of electric scooters’, the Rion RE90 is not for the faint-hearted. With mind-boggling speeds that rival most traditional vehicles, the RE90 takes the top spot in our 2022 list of the fastest electric scooters—and by some distance too.
It’s so fast, in fact, that Rion had to cap the speed that riders can actually travel at for safety reasons. While the RE90 is capable of hitting 100mph, you’ll only be able to reach 80mph, which, I think we can all agree, is pacy enough.
As a hyper-scooter, the RE90 has virtually no suspension, which means you should only be looking to use it on well-paved roads. The dual-powered disc brakes are responsive, and provide the necessary stopping power for such a blistering machine.
Arguably the most impressive feature of the RE90 isn’t its record-breaking speed, but its weight. At 31kg, this is a genuinely portable scooter that’s at least 20kg lighter than its competitors. Its relatively low weight also gives the RE90 a much sleeker feel to other premium scooters.
There’s no doubt about it: this is the current pacemaker in the electric scooter industry. Such impressive engineering takes time, though; if you’re in the market for an RE90, you’ll have to wait 90 days for the LA-based Rion team to build the scooter from scratch and ship it out.
For the second year running, the Weped SST and Rion RE90 continue to lead the pack as the fastest electric scooters on the market. They are racing scooters after all.
Notably, though, high-performance commercial scooters are getting quicker, with more options that push beyond the 60mph mark emerging for the everyday rider.
As manufacturers continue to innovate, new models will inevitably raise the bar once again and rewrite what is considered possible with electric scooters. For top speeds—and the electric scooter space as a whole—the only way is up.
With the improvements in battery technology and electric motors, the time is quickly coming where electric vehicles are matching the performance of their traditionally fuelled counterparts. Tesla is doing it for the car, and many companies are continually improving electric capabilities on two wheels. For example, the Lightning LS-218 is the world’s fastest motorcycle, gas or electric. In addition to this a small Dutch company called Bolt are working on their product – the Appscooter – a high tech, efficient and speedy electric moped that directly rivals any gas powered mopeds on the market. All these improvements are happening in the world of electric scooters as well and have resulted in the record for the fastest electric scooters being broken multiple times.
What is the fastest electric scooter?
The fastest electric scooter currently available is the RION2 RE 90 with a top speed of 100 MPH.
Which are the best-known brands for fast electric scooters?
The best-known brands for fast electric scooters include companies such as Minimotors, Nanrobot, Mercane and Inokim.
What speed is allowed for electric scooters to be street legal?
If an electric scooter has a top speed of no more than 20 mph and a motor power of less than 750W it will be classed as street legal in the United States. This means that it will not require license or registration in most states. However, there are different speed limits in different countries. Sometimes manufacturers will also intentionally limit the speed when they ship to certain countries in order to comply with local laws.
What factors make an electric scooter go fast?
The most important factors that make an electric scooter go fast are:
- Power of your motor: A higher Wattage (W) value generally means a faster scooter
- Battery: Higher Amp-hours (AH) or Watt-hours (Wh) indicate the ability to store and hence supply the motor with more energy
- Terrain: Inclines or bad road conditions will obviously reduce the speed of your electric scooter
- Weight of the rider: The heavier the rider, the slower your electric scooter can go
How much does a fast electric scooter cost?
Fast electric scooters prices range from approx. $600- $5000 USD.
At the cheaper end you will find scooters with speeds around 25 mph, while at the higher end you can expect to get top speeds up to 60 mph.
Are fast electric scooters safe?
There is no doubt that higher speeds require more experience and skills, which is why we don´t recommend none of the electric scooters presented in this post as first-time scooters. To further reduce the risks of being injured you should obviously always wear a helmet and protective gear as well as adapt your speed to the traffic circumstances.
What are important factors to consider when buying a fast electric scooter?
When buying a fast electric scooter it is really important to pay attention to the range, tires and suspension and to make sure those meet your requirements and how you want to use the scooter (commuting, long vs. short distances, off-road etc).

Thanks for this wonderful article about the fastest electric scooters available on the market. This article is very helpful for a beginner like me, you have included all the best product in your list. After reading, I have decided to pick Uberscoot 1600 Watt. What do you say about it?
The Uberscoot is fast and a lot of fun! I’m sure you’ll have a great experience with it. Thanks for commenting!
Eddy Jawed says
Good article in depth and concise. Thanks alot
Thanks for the kind words, Eddy!
Curious if anyone has any info on the “Dualped” line owned by Chris Dallas out of Ontario, Canada. These scooters are capable of speeds in the 50-60mph area and have something like 3200V batteries which allows the scooter to run for 40-50 miles. Crazy fast. Heavy but I am looking to buy for enjoyment around neighborhood and not too concerned about traveling with it. Wondering on the quality of batteries, scooter construction, motors in the wheels, warranty and general info like that. Anyone with insight, I would love to hear what you have to say.
Does someone has experience with NanRobot RS2 or RS4?
Alisson Carvalho says
Qiewa Q1 hummer is it better than Nanrobot scooters?
Hello my name is Kevin I’m interested to buy WEPED SS SCOOTER . Can you help to tell where to buy it ?
Thank you very much
Hi Kevin, they are sold out pretty much everywhere. I recommend to contact Weped directly and ask them if you can still order this one, as they have released the Weped GT in the meantime and distribution is focusing on this model.
Ayesha Mark says
These electric scooter looks great and have a good speed also. I would love to have any of them.
I saw that an electric scooter made in Los Angeles by a company called Rion is the fastest one out now. It can reach speeds up to about 85mph. Check it out on Youtube. It is extremely pricey and amazing!
Hi Jim, the Rion made it indeed into our bonus section in the article!
John Ten says
How can you not include WEPED SS? They go 70 miles per hour, freeway category speed standing up!
Hi John, at the time of writing of the original post the WEPED was not available yet, but we have now included it in our 2020 update!
Amaan Iqbal says
Hello, Loved the review, can you post some updated links on where to buy the uberscoot? I have looked on amazon and they are out of stock? I need to buy one fast and some shops or links would be great. Thanks for the help.
Hi Amaan, thanks for your comment! Unfortunately this model seems to be currently out of stock everywhere and we don’t know when it will be available again. Sorry for not being able to help more.
James Liu says
Great post! Very helpful buying guide for those who love to experience faster riding experience.
Randall R says
This is a fun article to read and thanks for taking the time to post it on the internet.
The Rion Electric Scooters is one of the fastest scooters in the world. But I’m curious to know why you didn’t post the Dualtron Electric Scooter? In my opinion, the Dualtron X would be the 2nd fastest scooter in the world, by having a top speed of over 70 mph.
thanks for your comment! The Dualtron X is indeed one of the fastest scooters, however according to what we know the speed is somewhere between 50-60 mph, which is still below the Rion2 or Weped SS.

You forgot to include the Razor e100 because it is so fast.
