Dualtron Victor Review: For Long Hauls

Nancy J. Delong

Why would anybody buy an electric kick scooter that prices $two,seven-hundred? It is really the concern I questioned myself following a representative from MiniMotors Usa prompt I try out the firm’s new Dualtron Victor. It is really also a concern a colleague, who has been driving a sub-$500 e-scooter, questioned me. 

Just after numerous weeks of driving it … properly, I get it. This is the only scooter I have ridden that feels like it is really produced for lengthy treks. I took it on a 24-mile spherical journey from Brooklyn to New Jersey, and it still had 30 % battery still left in the tank. Which is probably the farthest I have at any time traveled when standing upright! 

It is really so potent it casually zoomed up steep hills that would’ve crippled most e-scooters, and its suspension can make for a properly-cushioned trip. It has a few quirks—and just one large con—but this thing is practically perfect.

The Victor arrived on my doorstep in a huge, weighty box. No, I do not know who Victor is, but I’m glad this e-scooter requires just minutes to set up. Tighten the clamp on the stem, then unfold the handlebars and secure them with their respective clamps. 

You will find a hook at the close of the deck, so you can clip on the handlebar stem when you fold it. It keeps the stem from collapsing when it is really saved, and it can make it a great deal less complicated to have the Victor. Here is where by I ought to mention my most significant dilemma: It is really weighty. It is really seventy three lbs ., which is even much more than most electric bikes. Even lifting it to mount a suppress is cumbersome. Luckily, I reside in an apartment with an elevator. But there was just one working day when the elevator wasn’t functioning and … properly, let’s just say the stairwell heard some selection text. 

It is really difficult to obtain a similar scooter with this a great deal assortment and electric power at a drastically lighter weight, but that will not necessarily mean I will not complain about it. If you can manage to lift it, it will match into a trunk. It is really shockingly compact when folded.

The Victor is pretty much completely geared up out of the box. There are entrance headlights, taillights, and rear and entrance mudguards. (A bell would’ve been great.) It also has LEDs to illuminate the underside of the deck, and the Dualtron branding on the handlebar lights up like an RGB gaming Personal computer. You can use the incorporated remote to tweak the hues and lighting styles if you like. 

You can need to have to turn on the electric power change on the underside of the deck right before you can electric power the Victor on, by means of the dashboard on the leading-right handlebar. You will find a Mode button here to change the onscreen trip facts, and the third button (with a dot on it) will transform the e-scooter’s equipment. These a few gears will regulate your speed. The initial equipment, for instance, limits you to 15 miles for each hour.
