Advantages:

  • High Performance eScooter: a key design objective for the Hornet, was to have a comparatively compact but superbly equipped Electric Scooter that would be capable of taking on the rigors of the daily urban commuter. With the dual 500 watt motors & large 921Wh, 78 battery cell pack, there’s ample power to challenge gradients of  >20° degrees, as well as maintain cruising speeds (on the flats) of 28MPH.    
  • Suspension: on the front fork, the Hornet is fitted with hydraulic suspension dampers, while the rear has an adjustable sprung articulated arm. These provide up to 2″ of travel, which smooth out most of the jolts & irregularities from the standing deck position.   
  • Safety & Security: an important area that is often overlooked on a specification table is the braking performance. A high-performance scooter must be able to stop quickly in an emergency. The Hornet is equipped with both hydraulic & regenerative braking, making it the best of class on a 8″ scooter. There is also a front headlight & rear braking lights (with an independent activation switch), to alert those behind of your presence & to anticipate you slowing down. There is also a horn button, & a security key that prevents someone from turning on the scooter when physically secured.      
  • Trolley Wheels: with the pre-installed trolley kit, you can use the trolley to wheel it along in the folded position in situations like boarding a subway or train. 
  • Easier Maintenance: the Hornet has 8″ x 2.36″ solid rubber tires, which should result in downtime. Gaining access to the battery & controllers are accessed from the top deck plate, making is easier to perform maintenance work on the scooter than it is with some of the other models.  
  • Value for Money: with all the capabilities/features that provided by the Hornet, for $1,549 it’s probably the best valued dual-motor eScooter being offered within the US right now. 

Disadvantages:

  • 56.5lb Weight: although it’s more compact than either the Speedway III & IV, at 56.5lb it weighs several pounds more. This is because the motors are heavy & frame is built of anodized steel instead of aluminum. This weight factor is largely offset by the trolley kit, which is not available on either of the other Speedway scooters.  
  • Cheaper single-motor Scooter Available: if you don’t require the blazing power of a dual-motor scooter; for $550 less, you can acquire the extremely capable Turbowheel Dart.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How difficult is it to change the solid rubber tires?
    Effective service-life on the tires depend on a variety of factors; if they’re well looked after, the expected lifespan is between 3,000-5,000 miles. The advantage of the solid rubber tires is reduced maintenance; however, the downside is that they’re more difficult to change once they’re past their prime. Replacing the tire is expected to take under an hour. We’ll be producing a Tutorial on this process soon. 
  • Is there a seat available for Hornet? 
    Yes, the optional seat kit is available for $125. 
  • Is the Hornet water-resistant, can I use it in the rain?
    The Manufacturer’s recommendation is that you try to avoid excessively wet conditions, puddles & standing water. During assembly, the factory has sealed up the entry points to the battery compartment, etc; however, if it is very wet, water may find its way into the sensitive interior, resulting in water related damage. 

  • What type of warranty is provided?
    We offer a one year warranty for the parts & labour. It does not include shipping costs, which may be between $50-$150 (within the US), depending on the distance from our repair center in Tucson, AZ. While other dealers of Electric Scooters typically only offer a 3-6 warranty for the battery pack, we stand by all our products with a full one year warranty. Exclusions to the warranty are wear-and-tear & improper use, please refer to our warranty page for the full terms & conditions.

  • How many charge/discharge cycles can one expect from the battery pack? 
    This depends on a variety of factors: the weight of the Rider, high usage of regenerative braking, frequent hill use, how hard it’s driven, weather conditions (freezing temperatures are not ideal for Li-ion batteries), & most importantly the end-point charging voltage. If you use the 5A fast-charger & set the termination point to 80%, this single action alone can extend the lifespan of the battery by up to 4-5 times! The other benefit of partial charging, is that it lowers the risk of degrading your battery pack through the use of regenerative braking on a full charge.
  • With the dual-charger inputs, what is recommended maximum rate of charge? 
    We offer an optional 5A 54.6v rapid-charger for the scooter (see below), which represents roughly a 1:1 ratio of charge to ride time. Charging much beyond 5 amps is not recommended.
