Electric Review: Boosted Rev Electric Scooter



hey everybody Micah here from electric and today I'm reviewing the boosted Rev electric scooter at 1600 dollars it's a pretty pricy scooter but we're gonna see if the boosted name and the quality that comes with it make it worth the price let's check it out for the boosted Rev to be worth the price it's gonna have to have some seriously good performance with a top speed of around 24 miles per hour thanks to dual 750 watt motors they'll likely have a combined peak output of over 2 kilowatts the boosted Rev definitely has performance on lock it can climb just about anything and accelerates like there's no tomorrow I've reviewed a lot of electric scooters and the boosted Rev is definitely in the top 10 percent or so when it comes to raw power and torque the great thing about powerful motors too is that they also provide powerful regenerative braking just like boosted's high-powered electric skateboards that offer phenomenal motor breaking the boosted Rev also has powerful motor braking I almost never touched the disc brake and I pretty much forgot that the foot brake was even there I just used the regen braking all the time because it works so well the throttle is also really comfortable the knurled wheel feels much like boosted skateboard remote throttles and offers an intuitive interface forward to go forwards backwards to stop it doesn't get much simpler than that the boosted Rev also has great build quality and the entire scooter just feels like a tank even when jumping around on the scooter it just felt incredibly solid if I could make one addition it would probably be full suspension boosted will tell you that the Rev doesn't need suspension because it has fat 3-inch wide tires I'll tell you that is half true the tires work great at absorbing some bumps and I was even able to do some off-roading on single track but they definitely don't replace full suspension for cobblestones or other high-impact or rough terrain still most people will be using their boosted revs on fairly decent streets and bike lanes the ultimate question now is simply is it worth it and man this is really a tough one don't get me wrong I've been grinning ear-to-ear while riding around on the boosted Rev all week it's simply a pleasure to ride and it makes a terrific commuter vehicle but it's $1,600 if it had full suspension then I'd say it's a no brainer yes buy it but without full suspension I just give the caveat that it won't ride as nicely on really rough roads and cobblestone streets for the majority of riders though they'll be perfectly happy with the ride comfort on everyday streets and bike lanes so unless your local roads are totally cratered the fat tires on the boosted Rev will likely be more than enough for you at the end of the day the boosted Rev is of course a premium scooter if you're on a budget then you won't be considering the boosted rev you'll be looking at $300 budget scooters but for anyone that doesn't immediately recoil when you hear the price then you'll likely be very happy with the Rev and considering boosted offers a 30-day guarantee to try out the scooter and decide if you like it you really can't go wrong the boosted Rev is top quality and it's a blast to ride its price will certainly limit its audience but for those they can swing it they'll be happy they did thanks for watching everyone I hope you enjoyed that review if you did why don't you give it a thumbs up and don't forget to subscribe so you can check out all of electrics electric vehicle videos we'll see you next time you

  1. Great video, thanks for that. Anyways, I need to get this off my chest, so they stole their idea from Xiaomi, increased the price and called it premium?? BANG innovation right there. See nobody says a thing when reverse copycat occurs. Personally I don't mind companies copycat each other, we consumers win. However I am just tired of this growing hypocrisy that we in the west are always original, creative and innovative. Give me a break, seriously.

  2. Hey you! Are you a twenty something guy watching this video considering getting this? Let me help you. Scooters are for grandmas. Get an electric skateboard and live a little.

  3. I have an eMove cruiser with full suspension, double disc brakes for only $1200 when I bought it and it's way better than this one.

  5. For basically the same price my daughter's Speedway 4 Pro outperforms this scooter in every aspect. The Rev might have quicker acceleration but that's it. But considering it has two 750-watt Motors compared to 1 600 watt motor on the speedway 4 Pro it better accelerate quicker. For people waiting to see a second generation Rev with suspension don't hold your breath. With that frame design and no swing arms suspension is impossible.

  6. Thanks for being honest. And I think your assessment is accurate: it's a great scooter but $1600 considering it does not have full suspension doesn't make it a great value. I bought the Ninebot Max for a grand less (but still waiting for mine to arrive)

  7. There are cheap ebikes. There are cheap scooters. There are ebikes that cost way more than this, and could be bought for doing the same commute as someone buying the Rev. This is about as expensive as a fairly entry level ebike from an established brand.

  8. Great video. But it be nice to hear which speed setting use the most. And if you felt like there’s a big difference between the three modes

  9. Yes, it needs full suspension. Not so sure about the throttle and regen wheel? Until, some needed improvements happen I will look elsewhere.
