With the democratization of electric scooters , you have probably already ridden an entry-level model like the free-floating ones available in the streets of your city for example. But you may have noticed a certain lack of power from those same cheap electric scooters , greatly losing speed as the hill climbs.
Many brands then offer 2000W adult electric scooters among their top of the range to overcome this defect. But this is not their only quality.
The engine is the heart even of the machine and by their power, all-terrain adult electric scooters directly compete with electric scooters in the soft mobility sector.
Through this guide, we will make you discover the different advantages of investing in a 2000W electric scooter with dual motor .
Why choose a 2000W electric scooter?
Because of the 25 km/h limit in urban use, users of 2000W electric scooters are not necessarily looking for speed but above all for power . With its sufficiently compact and foldable size, this style of scooter has the advantage of being able to be transported more easily when traveling or on vacation than an electric scooter or an electric motorcycle.
With a slightly larger budget, 2000W electric scooters can thus meet several uses while having better durability over time. With a large top you will have more room to rest your feet and provide additional comfort . By offering such facilities, users very often make it their main means of transport. Especially after the pandemic period that we have experienced.
Users have thus found in these powerful electric scooters, a new solution for ecological mobility, while providing freedom and social distancing.
What's the use of having so much power?
In city traffic, you sometimes have to weave between different vehicles in order to safely get out of any complications. With a 2000W adult electric scooter, you benefit from better acceleration on any type of road.
A double motor thus makes it possible to considerably increase the comfort of use . Indeed, the weight supported by the device has a direct impact on the engine's ability to transport you. By having extra power, the motor of a 2000W electric scooter will never be overdue. This will leave other electric scooters and cyclists in place, especially on steep slopes.
But all that power comes with the braking part. It is indeed essential to have top-of-the-range disc brakes on these machines in order to drive in complete safety.
If the city is the favorite area of the cross electric scooter, it is quite possible with a 2000W model to enjoy long walks in the countryside . Steep or rough paths won't be a problem with the big 10-inch wheels that off-road electric scooters offer.
The double motor of a 2000W electric scooter will allow you to stick perfectly to the road. These machines provide a feeling of sliding on certain paths. Whether you are a sportsman, a thrill seeker or simply a fan of nature excursions, these machines will be made for you!
What autonomy do 2000W electric scooters offer?
In general, entry-level electric scooters under 500 euros have a range of only about twenty kilometers . If this is enough to join his job in the middle of town, it can often be a bit tight.
Even more so in winter when cold temperatures have a negative impact on battery life. Due to its larger size, the battery of a 2000W electric scooter allows, again, to make no compromise on its use.
Large 18Ah, 22Ah and even 24Ah batteries are present to power the double electric motor and take you to the end of your routes, even the longest ones. Some have a range of up to 100 kilometers .
More than enough to last several days with its 2000W electric scooter. But this has an impact on the weight of the device. It is indeed necessary to count not far from about thirty kilograms on the scale as well as a recharge much longer. For this last point, it is possible to buy a fast charger to divide the charging time by 3 .

Top 5 Best 2000W Electric Scooters
The purchase of a dual-motor electric scooter is not trivial due to the substantial budget , easily exceeding 1000 or even 2000 euros. So what are the criteria to take into account when buying a 2000W adult electric scooter so as not to make a mistake in your choice?
Apart from the power delivered by the motor, the torque offered by the combination of the two motors is a main element to take into account if you want to climb steep slopes.
The size of the wheels and the suspensions are criteria to be taken into account. Indeed, the size but also the width of the wheels contribute greatly to the crossing of various obstacles on your way while better absorbing shocks and vibrations. This is not to be taken lightly if you want to cover many kilometers.

Kaabo Skywalker 10S+ Electric Scooter
If you are looking for a 2000W electric scooter with a very different look, the Kaabo Skywalker 10S+ offers Gray and Red colors and stands out from the rest of the market.
Unlike the Kaabo Mantis GT V2 which is more about agility, the Skywalker 10S+ does not offer the same level of comfort. It is a road car with a good autonomy of 90 km. Its main advantage lies in its price below 1500 euros for those looking for a cheap 60V electric scooter.
Highlights of the Kaabo Skywalker 10S+
- The cheapest in our comparison
- 60V scooter
- A "different" look
Weaknesses of the Kaabo Skywalker 10S+
- A look that does not please everyone (Gray and Red)
- Too heavy and bulky
- Rather harsh suspensions
We have not mentioned in this comparison the Speedtrott RX2000 which in our opinion does not have sufficient reliability to be a good investment. Even more considering its price of 2490 euros.
The same goes for the Dualtron Compact released in 2019 which was previously in our ranking but which is clearly no longer at the level of the competition in 2022. Its 8.5-inch solid tires generate enormous vibrations in the chassis and end up causing breakage and other breakdowns.
What to know about 2000W electric scooter motors
What is a brushless motor?
Electric scooter brushless motors are sometimes mounted in the front or rear wheel. In order to provide additional power, electric scooter manufacturers combine the power of two 1000W brushless motors present in each of the wheels.
These can therefore be added together to operate simultaneously or be activated independently in order, for example, to save energy.
These motors have the advantage of having a good lifespan as well as excellent efficiency . But overall how does a brushless motor work ? To put it simply, the fixed part of the motor, called the stator, is made up of coils fed sequentially. These coils then create a rotating magnetic field at the same frequency as the supply voltages thus acting on the rotor, the moving part.
What is the power of an electric scooter motor?
By definition, the power, expressed in Watt , represents the quantity of energy supplied by the device per unit of time. The power of electric scooters thus corresponds to the speed multiplied by the torque of the motor.
Torque refers to the scooter's ability to climb a slope. Concretely, you will need more strength to ride uphill at the same speed as on the flat.
It should therefore be understood that the power delivered by an electric scooter depends on the type of road, the weight of the passenger and the speed of the vehicle.
The difference between the nominal power and the maximum power deployed
Rated power is the power received by a device when operating under optimum conditions . In the case of a lamp, the higher the rated wattage, the brighter the lamp.
Thus, if the electrical power supplied is higher than the rated power, then its efficiency is higher than expected. But this can lead to deterioration of the engine mainly due to the increase in temperature caused.
Each 2000W electric scooter exceeds its rated power. The manufacturer estimates that it can increase the maximum power within a certain limit depending on the quality of the parts of the device and the autonomy available on the battery.
The 2000W electric scooter therefore allows more versatility in your use. If you want to use it regularly without having to compromise on your ride, it is probably a good idea to invest in a 2000W dual motor electric scooter . This could well become your main means of transport.
They are therefore ideal for adults looking for a means of transport allowing them to easily avoid traffic jams to their place of work.
But you can also take advantage of it on weekends or during your holidays to get some thrills during getaways in nature.
