DUALTRON ACHILLEUS Review
Mini motors, with their highly customized high-tech products that are not limited by price or design, are the pioneers of innovative technology in electric mobility. Mini motors is one of Europe’s greatest scooter manufacturers, producing high-quality scooters that are safe, fast, efficient, and long-lasting. These goods have the perfect blend of engineering and aesthetics thanks to their high-quality manufacturing techniques. The popularity of models like Dualtron Storm, Dualtron Ultra, and Dualtron Thunder II has earned them this notoriety. Dualtron Achilleus has arrived. The frame and handles are composed of forged aluminium alloy and ultralight carbon fibre, while the shaft is made of SCM44O and the coverings are made of Polypropylene. The scooter’s durability is due to these materials. The scooter is available in three colors: black, black with red accents, and black with yellow accents. The Achilleus’ hefty dual brush less motors give a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h), and the strong torque can support a maximum rider weight of 265 lbs (120 kg). The scooter is also one of the best hill climbers in its class, with an incline of up to 39 degrees.
The scooter has a cutting-edge backlit multi function display unit that shows you your current speed, battery level, odometer, and time in real time. On the right, the brake levers and a finger-style throttle for acceleration are located on the handlebar ends. Other features on Achilleus include LED headlights, taillights, and ambient lighting, which make it safe to ride at night. While the scooter’s weight of 88.6 pounds (40.2 ) makes it difficult to carry and store, it is collapsible.

Due to its amazing design, power, and efficiency, the Dualtron Achilleus is one of the best electric scooters in its category. Dual brushless hub motors on the front and rear wheels produce a maximum peak power output of 4648W. The scooter’s two hub motors provide unrivalled acceleration and torque, with real-world tests showing it hitting 60 km/h in under 9 seconds. With a maximum load of 265 lbs (120 kg), the scooter can easily mount rough terrains up to 39 degrees inclines.
On level highways, the scooter can reach a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h) with optimal weight riders. However, in some jurisdictions in the United States and Canada, the maximum speed is limited to 15 mph (24 km/h) by a speed restricting wire to comply with speed limit legislation and insurance requirements.
On the right handle grip, the Achilleus has an index finger throttle control that gives rapid power when you lift the throttle. The scooter’s power is complemented with hydraulic disc brakes on the front and rear wheels, which allow it to stop on a dime even while travelling at high speeds.
Speed & Acceleration:
When it comes to max speed and acceleration, the Dualtron Achilleus scooter is no wimp. It boasts remarkable acceleration because to its brushless hub motors, which provide unrivalled torque and acceleration. On level roads, the scooter easily reaches a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h) (restricted to 15 mph/24 km/h in some locations), making it one of the quickest in its class. This peak speed is similar to that of the Classic Dualtron Thunder, although it is slower than that of the Thunder II, which hits 74.5 mph (120 km/h). The Achilleus’s peak speed is achieved because to its strong engines and all-terrain tyres, which give exceptional grip on a variety of conditions. Its fast acceleration makes it suitable for commuters searching for a fashionable yet functional mode of transportation for short trips from home to work or school. Riders will have a terrific riding experience because to the Achilleus’ tremendous torque, which helps them to maintain high speeds without losing power or momentum. There’s also cruise control, which allows the rider to keep a constant pace without having to use the throttle. To engage cruise control mode, set the P setting to 1 and ride for at least 7 seconds at the specified speed. This is especially beneficial for long-distance cyclists since it reduces fatigue and hand strain.
Because of the power and efficiency of its twin brushless hub motors, the Dualtron Achilleus is one of the most efficient electric scooters in its class. It can climb steep slopes with an incline of 36-39 degrees swiftly while carrying a maximum weight of 265 lbs (120 kg). This incredible climbing ability makes it ideal for commuters who want to ride in any weather. Its strong hub motors provide the scooter with plenty of torque and power, allowing it to readily climb steep hills.
Battery & Range:
The Dualtron Achilleus is equipped with a strong 60V 35Ah Lithium-Ion battery that provides exceptional range and power output. The 2100Wh battery provides a remarkable range of 75 miles between charges. This range is based on a rider weighing 165 pounds (75 kilogrammes) and riding on a level track with a fully charged battery (66.4 V). The scooter’s versatility allows it to be used for everyday tasks, outdoor activities, and long trips to school or work. The powerful battery is made by LG electronics. It makes use of strong Lithium-ion technology, which ensures that the battery has a long life and can offer steady power for years. However, the battery takes much longer to charge, taking anything from 4 to 20 hours to completely charge. It takes 20 hours to charge with a regular 1.75A charger, 10 hours to charge with two standard 1.75A chargers, 5.3 hours to charge with a rapid 6.5A charger, and 4 hours to charge with both.
The Dualtron Achilleus e-scooter is propelled by two brushless hub motors that deliver excellent cheval and acceleration. The scooter’s strong engines provide a combined peak power of 4648W, allowing it to readily climb hills and sustain a high top speed on various road surfaces. The power of the two engines pushes the scooter to a top speed of 50 mph (80 km/h) while towing a maximum weight of 265 pounds (120 kg). Dual motor controllers are in charge of the motors (35A each).
Construction & Quality:
The Dualtron Achilleus is an electric scooter that is extremely robust and strong. It combines futuristic design with cutting-edge technologies to provide an unparalleled riding experience. It features a really attractive contemporary, clean appearance. The Achilleus’ elegant design includes a new wide deck, robust 11-inch tyres, blue LED light strips around the deck and on the stem, and the Dualtron multipurpose EYE3 LCD Display. The handle and frame are made of aircraft-grade aluminium alloy and lightweight carbon fibre. The frame has passed the CTI test, which guarantees its durability. The shaft is made of SCM 440, 6082-T6, which provides further durability. Polypropylene is used to make the coverings, which can endure bumps and falls while safeguarding the sensitive components.
Internally, the cables are buried to prevent them from harm. Other Dualtron models have been known to have wobbling stems, but the Achilleus does not. Minimotors came up with a way to secure the stem by using a double clamping ring, which gives it a more solid feel. The clamping ring is also removable, making adjustments simple.
The deck is made of an aluminium alloy that is extremely robust. The deck is finished elegantly with a footrest that includes brake lights, night lights, and a handlebar hook. It comes with a kickstand to make parking easy. The Achilleus comes in three colours: black, yellow, and red.
Suspension & Comfort:
The Dualtron Achilleus scooter boasts a high-quality suspension system that provides excellent stability and comfort when riding over obstacles. It includes twin front and rear suspension systems with rubber cartridge systems that absorb surface disturbances and provide a smooth ride. Depending on the riding style, the user may adjust the suspension in 45 various places. The following modifications can be made:
Changing the distance between you and the motor, which has three different settings: high, middle, and low.
Adjusting the suspension arm’s angle between three places
Cartridge replacement. Five different cartridges are available.
Because of its big wheels and well-designed suspension system, the Achilleus scooter provides a particularly smooth ride. The scooter boasts dual adjustable front and rear suspension with rubber cartridge systems for a smooth ride. The tyres absorb bumps and uneven surfaces, making the rider’s experience more pleasurable.Due to its lightweight build and nimble turning radius, the scooter is very simple to manoeuvre. The big tyres help handling by boosting the steering stability of the scooter. Riders may also purchase a steering damper as an add-on for greater riding stability.
Furthermore, the long deck with a specialised footrest ensures that the rider’s feet are properly aligned when riding. At the same time, the high clearance helps to mitigate impacts from tiny bumps and imperfections on the road. The deck is coated with sandpaper grip tape to keep you securely planted on the scooter as you drive along.
To guarantee a comfortable grip, the handgrips are rubberized and ergonomically constructed. They’re also shaped to provide a comfortable fit for the wrist. You may upgrade to a seat for an additional fee, which is perfect for longer trips.
For night travel, the Dualtron Achilleus features an excellent lighting system. It has LED illumination on the deck’s sides, stem, and back. The scooter has front and rear LED lighting on the deck, as well as stoplights and brake lights built into the footrest. It comes with a specialised control for adjusting, turning off lights, and changing the colours.
A dynamic braking mechanism is also included in the Dualtron Achilleus scooter. It has Zoom front and rear hydraulic brakes, as well as an electronic ABS braking system, which greatly improves its performance.
This is one of the first electric scooters to be equipped with anti-lock brakes. ABS braking isn’t popular on electric scooters, although it’s useful when going off-road or in rainy weather. ABS brakes provide additional safety by preventing sliding when the rider applies the emergency brakes. Levers on either side of the handlebars control the disc brakes.
The scooter weights 88 pounds (40 kilogrammes), which reduces portability but increases stability. Dualtron Thunder is significantly heavier than Dualtron 3, weighing 79.37 lbs (36 kg), however it is lighter than Dualtron 3. The scooter, on the other hand, is foldable, making it simple to travel and store. It takes about 15 seconds to fold.
The Achilleus electric scooter folds up into a small package, with the handlebar folding down for simple storage. When folded, the scooter measures 125 x 27.5 x 56 cm (L x W x H). Fold the handlebar, remove the QR lever forward, and elevate the locking slide while folding the stem towards the deck. The handlebar hook can then be attached.
The Achilleus is equipped with large 11-inch Ultra-wide tubeless tyres for a smooth and comfortable ride. Flat tyres and blowouts are less likely with tubeless tyres. “Never flat” technology is used on the scooter. The tyres are packed with slime to prevent punctures and leaks, but they can be simply changed.
Because of their broad form, the tyres roll rather easily, making long travels considerably more comfortable for those who choose to use them. When riding on rough roads or terrain, the scooter’s huge wheels help to reduce vibration. The scooter also boasts double-walled rims, which are far more durable than ordinary rims and can withstand large impacts without damage.
The Dualtron Achilleus features a large deck that allows riders to have a comfortable and pleasurable ride. The deck is 61 cm long and 27.2 cm wide, providing the rider plenty of room to stand comfortably without feeling cramped.
The deck platform is coated with sandpaper grip tape to keep passengers in place while the scooter is moving. It also comes with a handy kickstand to make parking easy. Ambient lighting, LED brake lights, night lights, and a handlebar hook are all included on the deck.
Controls & Display:
The Dualtron Achilleus electric scooter is sleek and attractive, with a basic, clean handlebar. On either side of the handlebar are comfortable braking levers. Furthermore, on the left end of the steering column are control buttons for changing riding modes and triggering warning lights.
The right handlebar has the distinctive EYE3 LCD and an integrated index finger operated throttle, which adds to the scooter’s elegance. The index-controlled throttle provides motorcyclists with intuitive acceleration control. The user-friendly LCD panel shows range, battery charge, speedometer, and other important data for simple monitoring. The power button and controls for customising the scooter settings are on the display.
The Dualtron Achilleus does not have an IP rating, hence it is not waterproof. Dualtron electric scooters, on the other hand, are not usually IP rated. It can resist mild rain and damp flooring for short periods of time, but it should not be ridden in the rain or submerged in water.
The Dualtron Achilleus Electric Scooter is a well-designed, high-quality scooter. The LG battery ensures that it can be relied upon to go great distances. The scooter is also quick, with strong dual brushless motors that can climb steep inclines, go off-road, and carry large passengers. Because of the spacious deck, pneumatic tyres, and strong dual suspension system, the scooter provides a comfortable ride.
Riders and other road users will appreciate the twin Zoom hydraulic brakes, horn, and three-tier lighting system. Most parts have a two-year replacement cycle, so the scooter will last you a long time before you need to replace anything.
The scooter is extremely dependable, with a 2-year limited guarantee on the mainframe and a 1-year warranty on all major components. The warranty only covers the repair or replacement of damaged items that are the result of manufacturing flaws.

Because the Dualtron Achilleus is a newcomer to the market, it has not been thoroughly tested. We will update this area with personal experiences and user input as additional riders purchase and try out the trip.
The Dualtron Achilleus scooter, like all other scooters, requires routine maintenance and inspection. The scooter comes with an owner’s manual that includes advice on how to maintain it. Regular maintenance will keep your scooter in top shape and ensure that it gets you to your destination safely. Follow these steps to keep it working smoothly:
- For balanced riding, check the tyre’s air pressure on a regular basis. This should be placed between between 3.1 and 3.44 bars.
- Its brakes wear out after a long period of use, and you should replace them before they fail. As the distance between the brake pads and the disc expands, verify that they are tightened.
- Check the alignment of your wheels to make sure they’re in the same direction. If they aren’t, you’ll have to take it to an authorized dealer to get it fixed.
- Look for any error warnings on the screen.
- Wipe your scooter clean with a moist towel on a regular basis.
Check both sides of the steering wheel, the handlebars, and the folding portions for any loose hardware or components.
- To avoid harm when riding the scooter, tighten all fasteners. If the bolts on the wheels and the foot deck come loose, you should tighten them.
- Before riding, double-check that all of your scooter’s safety features are in working order.
- Follow the directions in the User Manual’s Charging Section to charge the lithium battery as needed.
Dualtron Achilleus: Is it worth the money and is it worth buying?
What do you think of an e-scooter that costs £2500/ $3400? Is that a lot for a scooter? The Dualtron Achilleus isn’t your typical electric scooter, to be sure. This scooter was created to allow you to travel quickly, comfortably, and safely. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a scooter with unique equipment like the Zoom brakes and LG battery as well-designed as the Achilleus. The scooter meets Dualtron’s high quality requirements and is extremely durable. The scooter can transport heavier passengers and climb steeper inclines than typical scooters in this price range. The scooter is foldable, making it easier to travel and store, despite its heavy-duty components adding to its weight. The super-capacity battery also takes an astounding 20 hours to charge, however a workaround of using a fast charger and a regular charger cuts that time down to 4 hours.
Overall, this scooter is one to keep an eye on in 2022. It’s well worth the money as a commuting scooter during the week and an adventure scooter on weekends.
