Electric Scooter Speed

These are some of the most common questions about fast electric scooters and electric scooter speed.

What electric scooter is the fastest?

The fastest electric scooter in the world right now with a proven top speed is the Weped SST. It has been recorded reaching a speed of 82 mph / 132 kmh.

How fast do electric scooters go?

top speed weped ffs

The average top speed for electric scooters is 28 mph / 45 kmh. Most of the standard commuter scooters will have top speeds between 15 mph and 28 mph (25 kmh and 45 kmh).

These numbers are the result of a full case study on the top speeds of electric scooters. You can check out the research here.

While that’s not slow at all, it wanes when compared to some of the rocketships we’ve seen here. That’s the difference between scooters built for everyday use, and ones built to launch you into orbit.

What are the best fast electric scooters?

Some of the fastest electric scooters are one-trick ponies and are not much good for anything besides going fast. If you’re looking for very fast scooters that are also great scooters all-round and have some more versatility, you may want to check out the following scooters:

What fast scooter has the biggest range?

Dualtron Storm electric scooter

The super-fast scooter that also has the longest range is the Dualtron Storm, which can go for 137 mi / 220 km on a single charge.

Typically, this kind of scooters here are optimized for speed, and getting more RPMs from the motor is what eats up most of the battery.

But they also can get a lot of range too. The motors are often in the thousands of Watts, which is a lot of power, and while going faster reduces the potential range, you are still covering a lot of distance in short periods of time.

How is the top speed in electric scooters measured?

Sometimes owners complain that their new scooter can’t reach the advertised top speed. While this is not common, the reason behind it is very simple – the scooter’s top speed is obtained in ideal lab conditions.

Ideal conditions for testing electric scooter top speeds include:

  • flat road, with no curves, and no ups and downs
  • relatively light rider, at least for a guy (around 155 lbs / 70 kg)
  • brand new, fully charged scooter
  • no wind, or no adverse wind

For some people, like for example heavier riders, the top speeds obtained in these conditions may not apply.

Are fast scooters good for beginners?

If you’ve never ridden an electric scooter before, or if you’ve only tried some rented ones a few times, you may want to think twice before getting a very fast machine for your first scooter. You will want to gain some general scooter experience before jumping into the shark tank.

Not only are fast scooters more dangerous, but they are also a lot more expensive. That’s why you may want to try things out on a cheaper scooter first. If you’ve never ridden a scooter, rent out a few and try them out before dishing out hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a scooter.

How safe are fast electric scooters?

At first, it may seem obvious that the faster the scooter, the less safe it should be, right? However, most electric scooter accidents are not because of ultra-high speeds. The primary reasons for accidents are negligence in traffic, worn-out brakes, and even broken stems and handlebars. These are actually characteristic of cheaper scooters, something which fast scooters are definitely not. So an argument can easily be made that fast scooters themselves are safer than lower-quality ones.

But in a way, the scooter is ultimately as safe as the person who rides it. When riding at high speeds, the danger will always be there, and of course, the greater the speed, the greater the danger. And yes, the faster you ride, the worse the potential injury can be. So, always wear all the protective gear you can get your hands on, and ride responsibly.

What should I know before buying a fast scooter?

The faster the scooter, the better it needs to be in terms of power and quality. Almost all of the time, that will mean more expensive. If you’re looking for the fastest scooters out there, don’t be surprised when you see prices in the thousands of dollars.

If you’ve ridden a scooter but never a fast one, you should know that these things can really go! Electric scooters had a somewhat casual, unserious vibe about them when they first came out. That is no more the case, especially with the scooters mentioned here.

They easily rival cars in terms of speed, which means they have a real pull and will accelerate very quickly. Be cautious when starting and braking, do both gradually.

Since they use a lot of power, they have larger batteries in general.

Most important of all, keep in mind that in many places, such as in many states in the USA, and in some European countries, the scooters may ship with their speed limited. You will have to bypass that if you want to reach the true potential of the machine. See my complete guide on how to remove your scooter’s speed limit for details.

Finally, never forget to follow the electric scooter safety guidelines, and wear safety gear. This applies for every time you step on a scooter, but it is especially true when you are riding fast scooters. A helmet is the bare minimum, and a full motorcycle armor along with elbow pads, knee pads, and gloves, is highly recommended.

How much do fast electric scooters cost?

Almost all of the top 30 fastest electric scooters cost more than $3000, with their average price being around $4500. The fastest electric scooter right now, the Rion Thrust, costs $10000, and there are 5 more models that cost more than $6000.

What does electric scooter speed depend upon?

The primary factor behind the top speed an electric scooter can provide will be the motor, and the motor’s power in particular. The motor torque and RPMs will be important stats well. The scooter’s battery is also very important, especially its voltage.

Other important features of the scooter that affect its top speed are the scooter’s weight and its tires. Naturally, lighter scooters will be faster because of their smaller weight, but at the same time slower because they will not have big batteries and motors. Scooters with road or racing tires will be faster than scooters with off-road tires.

Aerodynamics can be a minor factor in the speed as well. It does play a small role, and that’s why some scooters specialized in racing have an aerodynamic design.

How fast are electric scooters allowed to go?

In most Western countries, electric scooters will have legal speed limits ranging from 15 to 25 mph / 25 to 40 kmh.

In many of them, however, the laws may not be so strict, so a casual but safe 20 mph / 32 kmh ride may go unnoticed even if the law says 15 mph / 25 kmh.

In many other countries, electric scooters are either not yet regulated, or have adopted the same laws as bikes or motorcycles.

Can I make my electric scooter faster?

Aside from making sure that there’s nothing limiting your speed, the answer will be doing one or more of these:

  • upgrading the battery
  • adding one or more extra batteries
  • charging your battery fully
  • turning off unnecessary electronics
  • cleaning your scooter, especially your wheels
  • rewinding the motor
  • changing the sprockets
