In the year 2018 alone, more than 5 million electric scooters were sold. The cumulative population of electric scooters is expected to cross 500 million by the end of the year 2025. The market for electric scooters is growing at a fairly rapid speed. But they aren’t without their problems.
The basic problem that owners of electric scooters report is that they are too slow. The main reason behind this is the fact that in order to make electric scooters street legal, companies limit their speed. But what about those people who want electric scooters for private use?
We have a great piece of news for such enthusiasts. Electric scooter manufacturers are developing models that will not only provide the general benefits of an electric scooter but will be extremely fast as well. This article brings you the latest list of the 6 fastest electric scooters of 2023.
So, let’s dive right into it!
1. Rion RE 90 Hyper-Scooter – 80+ mph
It won’t be wrong to say that the electric scooters of Rion are just like the cars of Bugatti, the fastest ones out there. RE 90 is the latest arrival in the series of hyper-scooter by Rion.
During rigorous testing, it was revealed that RE 90 could even breach the 100 mph mark, but only to keep it drivable, Rion decided to limit the top speed to 80 mph. Rion has made abundantly clear RE 90 has been designed specifically for the purpose of racing. You should not use it for your daily commute as it is too fast to handle.
Now, let’s talk about the specifications of Rion RE90. It weighs less than 60 pounds and is powered by dual brushless motors that are capable of producing a whooping 100,000 watts (100 kW) of maximum power. For such powerful motors, Rion has to supply the necessary electric current.
So, the batteries of RE 90 are also one of a kind. 96.6 V and 30 Ah battery of RE 90 packs 30 units of 21,700 high-capacity cells. To charge this large battery pack, RE 90 also features a fast charging capability. Using this feature, you can charge the battery pack of RE 90 from 0 to 100 in about four and a half hours. In short, RE 90 is a true engineering marvel.
2. FS Hyper-Scooter – 78.2+ mph
Next up on our list is the FS Hyper-scooter, which is capable of going up to 78.2 mph. However, the company is claiming that the FS hyper-scooter can achieve a top speed of 90 mph, but that is yet to be tested, so we would refrain from speculation.
Even if it could breach the 90 mph mark, it won’t beat the Rion RE 90 to capture the top spot. 78.2 mph or 90 mph, the FS hyper-scooter is capable enough to land on the 2nd spot in our list. To make it street-legal in certain countries, FS has decided to limit the speed to 20 mph or so.
Again, this super-fast electric scooter is powered by dual brushless motors. Each of these is capable of generating 15,000 watts of peak power, taking the total power output to 30,000 watts. Just to remind you about the insane power output of RE 90, 30 kW isn’t even half of 100 kW.
Nevertheless, the FS hyper-scooter can also satisfy your need for speed very well. The immensely powerful motors draw juice from a 72 V 50 Ah battery pack. On a fast charging station, it would take 7.5 hours to fully recharge the batteries of FS. This whole package weighs about 124 pounds.
3. Bronco Extreme Sports 11 Electric Scooter – 70 mph
If you’re looking to buy a hyper-fast electric scooter, Bronco Extreme Sports 11 won’t disappoint you. Although Bronco is a fairly new entrant in the market of performance scooters, it has made one of the fastest electric scooters in the shape of Extreme Sports 11.
Bronco Extreme Sports 11 is capable of achieving a top speed of up to 70 mph. It has a 0 to 50 mph time of 7.3 seconds only. The frame of this electric scooter has been meticulously crafted using aviation-grade T-6 aluminum. That’s why it is lightweight and ultra-fast.
Extreme Sports 11 is laced with dual motors capable of producing a healthy 8,400 watts of peak power. The motors of Extreme Sports 11 are powered by a 72 V 35 Ah battery pack. High-performance tires with ultra-wide profiles ensure that nothing keeps you from speeding.
One thing we love about Bronco scooters is that they have a wide standing deck for the rider. Even with the Extreme Sport 11 model, the deck width is 12.2 inches. This is sufficient to accommodate people with the widest of feet. For a normal person, a wider deck means ease in standing while riding the scooter, and the ease factor becomes really important while riding a fast scooter.
4. Dualtron X2 Up – 69 mph
Dualtron needs no introduction in the world of electric scooters. Many of its models are capable of breaching the 60 mph mark quite easily. But X2 Up is something special. This model is capable of achieving a top speed of up to 69 mph.
The top speed is one thing. Even the range of X2 Up is extraordinary. On a single charge, it can go as far as 100 miles (or 160 km). Just like other members on this list, X2 Up is powered by dual motors capable of producing 4,150 watts each, taking the peak power up to 8,300 watts. These motors draw power from a huge battery pack of 72 V 42 Ah.
The appearance of Dualtron X2 Up is very sporty. The most prominent feature on the exterior is the big shocks. This model is supported by hydraulic suspension on the front and back, due to which X2 Up is a capable off-road electric scooter. It can tackle muddy and uneven tracks of forests while comfortably riding up the mountains. X2 Up is a true beast of electric scooters.
5. Kaboo Wolf King GT Pro+ – 65 mph
There was a time when Kaboo Wolf GT was the fastest electric scooter you could buy. But as time went on, the competitors of Kaboo produced faster electric scooters. With the new Wolf King GT Pro+ model, Kaboo has tried to reclaim the position of the fastest electric scooter in the world.
Though the company claims that this particular model can achieve a top speed of 60 mph, independent testing has revealed that the actual top speed is a bit higher. It can go up to 65 mph quite easily. All thanks to the powerful dual motors producing a power output of 4,000 watts.
The range of Kaboo Wolf King GT Pro+ is 110 miles (or 180 km), courtesy of the long-range battery pack and smart battery controllers. The powerful GT Pro+ can easily tackle an upward slope of up to 50 degrees. This shows that GT Pro+ is also an able off-road electric scooter.
6. Nami Burn-E 2 MAX – 60 mph
If you’re looking to enjoy an extremely powerful electric scooter, look no further than Nami Burn-E 2 Max. It has a top speed of 60 mph and offers the best ride quality possible on an electric scooter. Burn-E 2 max is laced with fully adjustable hydraulic shocks on the rear and the front. Thanks to this, it offers super smooth handling and a jerk-free ride.
The combination of hydraulic shocks and 11” tires is quite remarkable. You would be surprised to see the comfort of a scooter ride at over 50 mph. In addition to that, Nami Burn-E 2 Max offers 5 different customizable riding modes. You can adjust the torque of the rear and front motors while also limiting the acceleration and electric braking power of the scooter.
If the rider weight is limited to 150 pounds and you are cruising at a constant speed of 10 mph, Nami Burn-E 2 Max has an optimal range of over 115 miles (185 km). This high-performance electric scooter comes with a 72 V 32 Ah battery pack.

Final Word, Fastest Electric Scooters
Electric scooters are a great way of commuting between short distances. Kids use them to go to school, and adults use these electric scooters for daily chores. People riding electric scooters out of the metros to reach their homes is a very common sight.
Let’s admit that electric scooters are fun to drive, but they can be slow as molasses. But don’t worry. There are some electric scooters that are convenient to use and extremely fast as well. Many of the fastest electric scooters can even breach the 60 mph mark quite easily.
But don’t ride these scooters without wearing safety gear first because 60 mph is a serious speed for someone riding an electric scooter. God forbid, if you fall at this speed, it can have severe consequences. So, always make safety your first priority while riding a fast electric scooter.
