The EMOVE Roadrunner is a hilariously over-powered little 35 mph seated electric scooter

by Micah Toll

It’s basically two wheels strapped to a battery, and it goes faster than it probably should. It’s small. It’s powerful. It’s probably dangerous in the wrong hands. In other words, it’s perfect.

Voromotors Roadrunner  tech specs Motors: 500W (rear) and 350W (front) geared hub motors Top speed: Claimed 55 km/h (34 mph), though I got a bit higher Range: Claimed 80 km (50 mi) Battery: 48V 26.1Ah (1,252 Wh) Weight: 30 kg (55 lb) Weight capacity: 150 kg (330 lb)

There are three speed settings, and you may actually use all of them. Most scooters are left in their top speed setting all the time, since who wants to ride around at 8 mph in slowpoke mode?

But the Roadrunner actually gets up to higher speeds in settings 1 and 2. For the fastest riding though, level 3 is where the party starts.

With a 48V battery underneath, it has plenty of power between the dual motors to accelerate quickly and get you rolling fast.

When it comes to braking, Voromotors made the wise decision to outfit the EMOVE Roadrunner with hydraulic brakes. You don’t want to try and stop 14″ wheels from 35 mph without some extra power.
