The Dualtron Raptor was one of the most popular scooters when it was debuted in 2018, providing the groundwork for succeeding models such as the Dualtron Thunder, Ultra, Compact, and Spider. Unfortunately, with the introduction of these new models with modern characteristics, the Raptor’s glory faded due to its now-obsolete features.

Dualtron chose to bring back memories of the Raptor in 2020 by launching a new version, The Dualtron Raptor 2. The Raptor 2 is a significant improvement over the original Raptor, with current electric scooter features including an LCD Eye Throttle, stem lighting, and anti-lock brakes (ABS). Furthermore, due to the non-pneumatic tyres, it is quite light and requires little maintenance.

Dualtron Raptor 2 Summary:

The Dualtron Raptor 2, like its jungle companion the Velociraptor, is a quick, lightweight scooter that effortlessly navigates traffic. It has a large range and is quite portable. The Raptor 2’s extraordinary low weight and elegant folding form, unlike other powerful Dualtron dual-motor electric scooters, make it an easy commuter ride, making it ideal for urban situations. The frame is made of 6082-T6 aluminium, the shaft is made of SCM440 steel, and there are some plastic coverings to help with weight and durability.

With two 3000W max BLDC motors and a 59.2V 18.2 Ah battery, you can anticipate quick acceleration up to 37 mph and a range of up to 37 miles (60 kilometres) on a single charge. With so much power, ascending inclines is a snap for this scooter, which has a gradeability of 25 degrees (47 percent) in ideal conditions.

The Raptor 2 delivers a smooth and comfortable ride on normal urban terrains, thanks to dual 15-step adjustable rubber suspension and 8″ solid tyres. With a rear drum and ABS braking technology, riders are guaranteed optimum safety. The Raptor 2’s dual LED headlight, rear turn lights, and brake lights make it safe to ride at night and in low-light settings.

The EYE throttle ver.3 display on the Raptor 2 is similar to the one seen on the Dualtron 3, Thunder, Spider, and Speedway 5. The EYE throttle provides useful information about the scooter, such as the distance travelled, time, mode, current speed, and remaining battery life. For further security, the display includes cruise control and an optional fingerprint scanner.

Due to its lightweight design and easy and robust foldable mechanism, the Dualtron Raptor 2 is arguably one of the most portable dual-motor electric scooters. The scooter folds up into a small and compact package, making it easy to lift and carry or store in a vehicle boot.

Furthermore, owing to the robust tyres, the Raptor 2’s superb structure and build quality ensures durability with low maintenance. You’ll never have to worry about a flat tyre or bent rotors with this scooter, which may be quite inconvenient, especially in fast-paced metropolitan situations.

The Raptor 2 is a significant upgrade over the original Raptor, with solid tyres, a new LCD Eye throttle display, adjustable suspension, and anti-lock brakes on drum brakes (ABS). Furthermore, the scooter is extremely light and foldable, making it ideal for urban situations. Let’s take a closer look at the scooter’s amazing features.

Furthermore, the scooter is extremely light and foldable, making it ideal for urban situations. Let’s take a closer look at the scooter’s amazing features.

Speed & Acceleration:

The Raptor 2 is one of the quickest entry-level dual-motor powerful scooters, with a peak speed of 37 mph (60 km/h). Its max speed is sufficient to keep up with traffic while providing an exciting ride. Even better, the scooter boasts a brutally sharp acceleration curve, giving both rookie and expert riders an adrenaline boost. To stay safe, new riders should keep their speed to a minimum or use cruise control.

Up to 8 mph, the Raptor accelerates similarly to the Dualtron Thunder. I’m talking about going from zero to eight miles per hour in less than 1.5 seconds. The Raptor 2 accelerates safely and smoothly, making it ideal for novices.

Battery & Range:

The Raptor 2 is equipped with 60 volt, 18.2 Ah, 1,092Wh Li-ion Power cells that provide a range of 37 miles (60 kilometres). Eco mode, single motor, and lowest riding gear allow for a range of 37 miles. At peak performance, expect a range of less than 20 miles, which is still respectable. In essence, the range is determined by a variety of factors, including your riding style, terrain, and weight.

When utilising a regular charger, the Dualtron Raptor 2 battery might take up to 9 hours to completely charge. That’s a long time for a scooter with a range of 37 miles. Fortunately, you can reduce the charging time to just 4.5 hours with two normal chargers or 2.8 hours with a rapid charger.

Motor Configuration:

Two 1500W motors are installed in the front and rear wheels of the Dualtron Raptor 2. The motors have a combined peak output of 3000W and provide crazy torque. With so much power, the scooter gives users a lot of control choices. Riders may choose between a single motor and a twin motor at the touch of a button, depending on how much power they desire.

You may also ride in Eco mode, which uses less power for smoother city driving and longer range, or Turbo mode, which uses the most power. The arrangement of the motor may be changed to match your exact power requirements.

Construction & Quality:

The Dualtron Raptor 2 has a strong, durable design that avoids the bulky appearance associated with powerful electric scooters. The scooter is sleek, beautiful, and modern, and it certainly attracts attention. The Raptor 2 is no exception to MiniMotors’ reputation for high-quality scooter construction.

The scooter is made of high-quality materials to ensure long-term durability. The scooter’s frame is built of 6082-T6 aluminium alloy, which keeps the scooter light and provides optimal stability. The shaft is made of SCM440 steel and provides excellent handling. To keep weight down, the shaft metal is 30-50 percent thinner than previous Dualtron variants.

The curved handlebars of the scooter are made of ultra-light carbon fibre and polypropylene plastic, with rubber gripping at the ends, ensuring optimal control and comfort when riding. The scooter also has front and rear plastic fenders to protect the riders’ feet from splashes and debris.

Overall, the Raptor 2’s build quality is exceptional, allowing it to survive misuse and harsh weather conditions. Even at high speeds, the scooter feels solid, assuring users of its safety and longevity.

Suspension & Comfort:

The Dualtron Raptor has the same suspension system as the Dualtron Spider and the Dualtron Eagle Pro. The scooter has 15-step adjustable rubber suspension in the back and front, which provides enough shock absorption to compensate for the small solid tyres. Switching between five different rubber cartridge types and tweaking their height allows for smooth suspension adjustment. Depending on your weight, terrain, riding style, and other factors, you may pick from ultra-soft to extra-hard suspensions.

While the scooter’s rubber suspension absorbs the majority of the shocks, allowing for a smooth and comfortable ride, it falls short of the industry standard spring suspension. It’s also inconvenient to remove and replace the rubber cartridge every time the suspension strength has to be adjusted.

Ride Quality:

Despite the Raptor 2’s modest 83.3-inch solid tyres, it manages to provide a pleasant ride on ordinary urban terrains. The 15-step adjustable suspension in the front and back compensates for the tiny tyres, offering some riding comfort. Nonetheless, the ride quality would have been much improved if MiniMotors had utilised larger and wider tyres, such as those seen on the most powerful scooters, such as 10 or 11 inches. As the rider cruises the riding course, the large deck with grip tape guarantees stability. Furthermore, the Raptor 2’s stem is reasonably wobble-free, and when combined with the ergonomic design of the rubberized handlebars, this scooter is a delight to ride. The scooter’s lighting design makes it visible to incoming and trailing traffic, making night riding easier. However, the scooter lacks a horn, which is an important safety element, and it is not waterproof, so it can only be used in dry weather.

Lights:

If you want to ride the Dualtron at night, you may do it with ease. The Raptor 2 comes with a complete lighting package that includes a dual LED headlight, taillight, and brake light. The headlight provides excellent front visibility, while the taillight and brake lights keep you visible from behind, notifying others when any of the three brakes is applied. The scooter also has a Dualtron LED strip along the length of the step. The stem lighting improves the scooter’s visibility at night and adds style—one of the most notable differences between this and the original Raptor. The LED stem lighting can be customised using a handy control that comes with the scooter. Install an additional headlight at the stem for better front vision.

Braking:

The Raptor 2 has a strong braking system that includes a regenerative electric rear drum brake as well as rear and front electric brakes with ABS as standard. The rear drum brake and ABS are controlled via the highly responsive and sensitive brake lever on the left handgrip. To lessen the speed or bring the scooter to a gentle halt, gently push the brake lever. You must apply force to the brake lever in an emergency stop.

In an emergency, the ABS prevents the wheel from locking and sliding, adding to the driver’s safety. The EYE throttle display screen also allows you to regulate the strength of the front and rear electronic brakes. The electronic brake on the scooter provides additional braking force, making the brakes more accurate and reducing braking distance. Even better, the electronic brake is regenerative, which means it recharges your battery every time you brake, extending the range.

The Raptor 2 is one of the safest powerful electric scooters when it comes to stopping power, thanks to its hybrid braking system. You won’t have to deal with erratic mechanical disc or hydraulic brakes that can fail at any time.

Portability:

Because to its lightweight and foldable form, the Raptor 2 shines in terms of portability. A locking clasp connects the stem to the deck once folded, making it easy to carry. Furthermore, the scooter folds up into a little container that weighs only 50 pounds (22.6 Kg). As a result, the scooter may be simply taken upstairs, transported in the trunk of your car, or stowed in tight locations.

One of the most portable and high-performance electric scooters is the Raptor 2. If you’re looking for a strong scooter for your last-mile commute, it’s a good option.

Tyres:

In comparison to most powerful dual motor electric scooters, the Raptor 2’s tyres are smaller. The scooter has solid 8″ non-pneumatic tyres. The Raptor 2’s ride quality is harmed by its small, solid tyres, which provide insufficient dampening due to its high stiffness.

Solid tyres, on the other hand, are impervious to punctures and require no maintenance, bringing several advantages to consumers. Nonetheless, the undersized tyres aren’t exactly conducive to smooth and comfortable rides. They’re not ideal for off-roading or repairing damaged city roads.

Deck:

The Dualtron Raptor 2 comes with the traditional Dualtron Deck, which is entirely black with two runs of grip tape and the company’s emblem in the centre. The deck is rather large, with plenty of space for your feet to rest. The anti-slip stripes provide excellent balance and safety. The deck is equipped with a retractable kickstand for smooth parking.

Controls & Display:

The Raptor 2 is fitted with the new EYE LCD ver. 3(Ey3) -a sleek-looking display attached to an index finger-throttle. By separating the existing two-button combination type with an independent three buttons, the MiniMotor’s 3rd-generation EYE throttle allows intuitive and quick operations. The LCD display keeps you informed on various aspects of the scooter, such as the current speed, % of battery left, trip distance, and motor mode (Eco, normal or turbo)

The Ey3 gives you full control over the scooter, encompassing the throttle, mode button, power button and setting button. As such, it gives you convenient access to several options such as cruise control, rear electric brakes, auto-off, motor output and soft start, among others. There’s also an optional fingerprint to unlock your scooter using fingerprints.

The Raptor 2 has the new EYE LCD ver. 3 (Ey3), which is a sleek-looking display coupled to an index finger-throttle. The MiniMotor’s 3rd-generation EYE throttle offers easy and speedy actions by splitting the traditional two-button combo type with three separate buttons. The LCD display provides information about the scooter’s current speed, remaining battery percentage, travel distance, and engine mode (Eco, normal or turbo)

The Ey3 provides complete control of the scooter, including the throttle, mode, power, and setting buttons. As a result, you’ll get easy access to features like cruise control, rear electronic brakes, auto-off, motor output, and soft start, among others. There’s also the option of using your fingerprint to unlock your scooter.

Water Resistance:

Because to its lightweight and foldable construction, the Raptor 2 shines in terms of portability. The stem is secured to the deck by a locking clasp once folded, making it easy to transport. The scooter also folds up into a little bundle that weighs only 50 pounds (22.6 Kg). As a result, the scooter may be simply taken upstairs, transported in the trunk of your car, or stowed in small locations.

The Raptor 2 is a lightweight, high-performance electric scooter. If you need a strong scooter for your last-mile trip, you should consider it.

Reliability:

The Raptor 2 is a trustworthy MiniMotor scooter simply because of the reputation these scooters have earned through time. The Raptor 2 provides the needed performance, range, and gradeability while remaining lightweight and portable.

Warranty:

It comes with a one-year guarantee that does not cover regular wear and tear or water or liquid damage. MiniMotors offers pleasant customer service that may be reached by email or phone. If you have any problems with your Raptor 2 scooter, you can count on great customer support.

Known Issues:

MiniMotors made significant improvements to the Raptor 2 over its predecessor, yet the scooter still has flaws. The absence of an angled foothold that allows riders to rest their foot securely while riding. The absence of this function causes riders to exert pressure on the back fender, causing it to be easily damaged.

Maintenance:

Because of its non-pneumatic tyres and rear drum brake, the Raptor 2 is a low-maintenance scooter that is ideal for urban use. However, just like any other gadget, you’ll need to maintain the scooter. The following are some popular scooter maintenance practises:

  • Before putting the scooter away, clean it.
  • Check when consumable parts such the hinge bolt, battery, steering tube, handle stem, and locking slide should be replaced.
  • Examine and repair any scooter parts that have been damaged by the elements.
  • Tighten the brake pads on a regular basis because they tend to loosen with time.
  • Only use the approved chargers to charge the scooter.
