To get to these numbers, the Dualtron Thunder electric scooter, equips two electric motors with 1200w power, one on each wheel. That is, 2400 watts of total rated power and an amazing peak of 5400 watts, which gives a lot of power to a vehicle that weighs only 42 kg. It is true that it is heavier than other commercial scooters in the market but these definitely do not reach the performance numbers that the Dualtron Thunder.
To feed these two amazing motors, the Dualtron Thunder is equipped with a 60v, 35Ah battery with LG cells. This battery is powered by the charger that comes with the serial equipment and it takes approximately 20 hours to be fully charged. Optionally there are two alternatives to improve the waiting time. The first option is to connect a second charger, which reduces the waiting time by half, 10 hours and the second alternative is to use the high-performance charger with an effective charging time around to 5 hours. In addition, it comes equipped with an additional connector to add an extra battery and increase the driving time. The standard battery autonomy is around 75 miles (120 km).
Dualtron Thunder controls the enormous performance of the engines through its control command using three different speeds and two available modes: A single motor (for city use and save battery mode) and both motors (for high performance). It has a control panel on the right side where you can select the desired speed and on the left side, a red button activates the use of one or two motors.
The feel of the speed of the Dualtron Thunder is awesome and one must very well grip to the handlebars as well as having a good posture to stay on the platform. When passing through off-road terrain, the suspension has excellent behaviour, feeling very stable. It is recommended anyway, be very careful about the speed if you are driving on this kind of surfaces.
Lighting is an important point for night drivers. Dualtron Thunder has two LED lights on the front of the platform and very well illuminated taillights as normal driving conditions. Additionally, it implements a set of coloured LED lights on the pole and platform that can be adjusted with a remote control that comes in the box and that gives it a very modern and striking appearance at night.
About lighting, a very interesting aspect is the implementation of hazard lights that although it is true, it can be a feature that could pass unnoticed by some users, when you need to use them, you’ll realize the true Importance and safety by driving. Other stand up scooters on the market do not incorporate it. Because hazard lights are a standard precautionary warning for drivers of vehicles on public roads, it’s instinctively easier for them to warn that they should exercise caution when passing close to you.
A separate chapter is related to the brakes. Being a high-performance electric scooter, Dualtron Thunder implements disc brakes on both wheels, hydraulically operated and with an electronic anti-lock control system (ABS), which prevents the wheels are locking when using the brakes in an emergency.
Perhaps you’re asking yourself at this moment: Well, and what is this for? and the answer is very simple: When wheels is turning and obviously advancing, you stay control of the direction. In an emergency situation in which the brakes are applied with force, the wheels stop spinning and the vehicle skids on the track caused of the inertia, that is, it continues to move in a straight line without the possibility of controlling it. The scooter is being dragged until it stops completely. An electronic ABS system what it does is release the brake and re-activate it repeatedly so that even though you have the handlebar pressed in its entirety, the wheels can still rotate just enough to keep the steering and dodge the danger. This is a feature that does not have smaller scooters and is only found in motorcycles, cars, and heavy vehicles.
Additionally, Dualtron Thunder has the ability to disable this braking safety method at will for a very interesting reason. In “Free Style” sport driving, you may want to try a “drifting driving style” or use the brakes making turn the rear side of the vehicle just for the pleasure to feel a new adrenaline sensation. However, it is important to mention that this practice requires a lot of expertise and above all to have safety equipment that protects it from the inevitable falls that it will suffer. Here, you will find the necessary security equipment to be well protected.
