Blown away. Fast and aggressive with adjustable settings to make it perfect for cruises. Middle of the city? Out on the salt flats? Slow? Fast? This scooter is for anyone looking to level up. The way its built means you can maintain, repair, and catch air with this BEAST of a scooter. Wear a helmet. 10/10.
I ordered two of the D4 2.0 for my wife and I. There was minimal assembly. Just check the tire pressure and ride. Just watch the brakes, they are a bit touchy.
After about a week with the new Roadrunner RS5 2.0 I have to say I have had zero issues or complaints. Apart from the size and weight, it makes up for itself with comfort and distance. I travel to work about 20 minutes ride each way with gravel roads, asphalt streets, and bike trails. The suspension may seem firm at first but after a while you break in the hydraulic springs and feel very few bumps. On the topic of charging, I haven’t had to charge this scooter in four days when using first gear. When it comes to torque going up hills, I was skeptical but quickly found out it has absolutely no decrease in cruising speed when you hit a 25 degree slope.
The bright lights and solid build design really shows with the price you pay for performance and quality.
Overall this scooter is a must buy for long range and all terrain traveling! Have not thought about buying another kind since.
Amazing product 👌 I'm really enjoying it it's worth the price 100% very smooth and very reliable as a daily transportation vehicle. If you're in need of a scooter ! Go ahead, get yourself one , you will not regret it . The quality is there on part's and on the frame of the scooter. Again loved it .
I’m struggling to find criticism for this scooter. This thing is amazing. Coming from a cheaper $1000 Chinese knock-off, it is a night and day difference. It feels solidly constructed down to every last nut and bolt. Sine wave controller is so smooth, but doesn’t have that same burst of speed from a square wave controller, so if max speed is important to you, that might be worth noting. I will gladly lose a bit of acceleration for the sake of stability. There are settings that can be adjusted, I think, to increase that acceleration force though, but I can’t speak on it since I haven’t tried it. Suspension is butter, it does amazing on the public roads and even on some mild gravel and rock paths that I have tried. I have heard Roadrunner customer support is next level, but thankfully I have had no need to contact them in the 8 days I have owned it so far. The blinkers are a cool detail, although one I haven’t really used. The headlight is adequate but not really sufficient for night riding, but hey, I’m reaching here. Overall, this is the one you have been looking for. If you are here reading this then you know your stuff already and are just waiting to convince yourself to make the jump. Let me settle your mind and just say, GO FOR IT.
Had my new RS5 out multiple times now and have been asked what kind of scooter is that and where did you get it?
Proud to tell everyone that it’s a Roadrunner!!!!!!!
You just can’t beat the value these guys bring to the powered scooter world, find a scooter that is built well with 90% of the options you would want on a fast scooter like Hydraulic Brakes, Steering Damper, 40 mph top speed, decent range for UNDER $1,300 SHIPPED?! These guys did it! I have both the D4 + 2.0 and the D4 + 4.0 and man what a difference in suspension performance and stopping power is night and day difference as well! So glad I upgraded to the 4.0 it’s the best bang for your buck period. Keep doing yo thang Roadrunner! Thanks!
It looks so good and better looking than picture on the website. remember that this scooter is not a toy. Don’t underestimate the power of this bad boy. I fell off the scooter going 30mph because I didn’t know how to stop properly I educated myself via youtube and found how to stop. You have to lean back and squeeze the break. If you don’t lean back when stopping you will fall. Before your ride watch some youtube videos on how to stop. I love this scooter love how it looks
I bought my Scooter in April 2023 and rode it for around 800 miles before installing the steering dampener
You can ride the RS5 without it just fine but I have to say I love having the steering dampener on as it keeps the handlebars from wobbling when I lift my hand to look at my watch or wave (which I don't recommend)
I really like the scooter. No problems going up hills and that's what I like and it's quick fast I'm still a little bit scared of putting it in second and third gear yet I'm just getting used to it scooter. Only thing I don't like about it the display needs to be a little bit better so you can see it in the Sun other than that it's a cool scooter.
Before buying I considered several options, and ended up going with the RS5 from RR because of the removable battery, good turn signals and back light, tubeless tires, hill climbing power, speed capable of matching cars on suburban streets, and the US based brand with responsive customer service. With a scooter this heavy it's a significant advantage to have a removable battery. I chose the RS5, and I like that at a later date I could get a second battery to upgrade it to the RS5+ and not only have a longer range from 1 battery but have the ability to swap and extend the range. Now for a few things that could be improved. The multi-tool it comes with is to short/bulky to be able to get into the areas to tighten screws, be prepared to get your own set of long hex wrenches and adjustable cresent wrench(found at my local hardware store). I'd really like for this scooter to have traction control, and also a higher IP water rating so I don't have to stress about random weather changes and can at least ride it slowly to the train if it happens to start raining(Lime scooters can do this) also other scoots on that market have up to an IPX6 water resistance rating(so it is possible). The front headlight could also be improved a lot if it had more spill/wasn't such a narrow beam. The cords by the handlebars are very tight, I'd like more slack to be able to upgrade it to some folding bike handlebars, also the current handlebar is tapered and bent with very minimal room for accessories like a phone holder, mirrors, aftermarket light(the front stock light is weak and narrow beamed, but the other side and back lights are good at night), rear view camera screen, ect... and I've had to get handlebar doublers. I can't tell the difference between regen braking Pb1-4 and they don't seem to noticeably effect the battery voltage when applying the brake, Pb5 is very strong on gear 1 but is strong yet smooth on gears 2-3, Pb5 causes a noticeable spike in the battery voltage(gives some juice back), I'd really like some kinda add-on that's a seperate throttle for the regen brakes, or maybe like an update where if you push and hold D/S while applying the throttle it switches to a variable regen brake?(this sounds to complicated mid ride, maybe another button next to the throttle to switch between brake/gas for smoothly going down hills with a variable brake setting yet also keep the regular ebrake settings so they can engage at full force when street riding). In summary Pb5 is pretty good for riding on the streets and stoping smooth and strong at full speed, but it's really sudden/jerky if I'm trying to slowly roll down a hill at a controlled pace. The charge port on the outside of the scooter needs an improved cover that seals it better, especially because water damage isn't covered by the warrantee(also if you take out the battery there's 3 little holes on the bottom, 2 visible under the battery and 1 under the controller section). The real world minimum range for me on the RS5(52V, 23.4Ah, 1217Wh)is about 18.5miles(I had to push it back about 0.5mi, so the odometer shows 19mi with an empty battery), but I was going up a lot of hills at 25ish mph and around 30-40mph on roads, and I'm 230lbs with a large heavy backpack. I have yet to test out the max range while going slow on gear 1. Also I'd like to see one with an unique and original look. The RS5 looks very very similar to the Vsett 10+, Kukrin G3 pro, and Maxfun 10 Pro, for example the Minimotors Blade X looks weird but also unique, even the Mukuta 10+ has similar specs but also has a unique look that sets it apart from the Vsett or other similar scoots. Overall though it beats all the other scooters in it's price range for the features, price during sales/good value, and customer service. I really like this scooter and I'm excited to ride it more when it becomes summer again. I think this will help increase my mobility within the public transportation system and also pay for itself in 6.75 months by canceling out a majority of my ride share costs, if I were to buy a car it would take 10-12yrs to cancel out those costs(not including maintenance or gas). I also think this has a major advantage over mopeds or motorcycles because it's very portable. PEV's are the transport of the future.
Only had a short time after fully charging scooter and filling tires to propped psi ,assembly went quick for me as I’m an ase certified technician in the automotive field, fit and finish is above par, quality level of build is above par , noticeably high quality components if not all fasteners are high quality stainless steel , first ride was excellent, was able to get it in dual motor speed 2 , it was frightening, I decided to park it until I get a helmet and propper body protection , wow what a blast , brakes are spot on, I’m 6.4 235 pounds and it let me know who the boss was , it was the scooter , I’m terrified to go to 3rd gear dual motor 🤨 it is unreal how it pulls , and I live on a rather big hill , no issues at all pulled me up the hill like I wasn’t even on it , just awesome, don’t hesitate if your looking for a fun toy , but be mindful and wear proper protection, because this isn’t a child’s toy , it is extremely high quality, machine work and finish are above my expectations, quality is far above what I expected, home run in my opinion, remember treat it with respect it is extremely fast and a whole lot of fun !
My rs5 scooter is everything I could have ever wished for well built all the parts can be replaced easily just plug n play I live in san francisco where there are many steep hills and my rs5 handle them all quite easily no more avoiding the hills the power is more than adequate for such a city like Frisco taking it one day at a time with my new toy/scooter love at first site 💙 ❤️ 😀 💕
I purchased this as an upgrade from the Emove Cruiser and this thing is almost terrifyingly powerful! I'm 270 pounds and it's strong enough to carry me and still go 40 miles uphill on it's third speed mode with both motors engaged, it's amazing! I feel a lot safer in traffic now that I can hit the speed limit.
The brakes are also very responsive, the first time I hit them I almost launched myself off because I pressed down slightly too hard, you have to treat them gently because a little bit with them goes a long way!
I had read some people saying that this is a good beginners scooter though, and I do have some worries about if that's true or not, if you're just starting out with this I would strongly suggest sticking with a single motor until you're used to it, because with both engaged you don't have a gentle increase into your desired speed, you're just THERE now, and you'd better be ready. Also you desperately want the steering dampner if you're planning on taking this monster as fast at it can go, once you hit around 40 the speed wobbles on it become intense, and can easily wipe you out if you're not being cautious.
And for some minor complaints, the handlebars not folding down makes it take up a lot of space no matter where you put it, and there's not really a good place for a handlebar mounted light on it, you can't get it in the center pointing directly ahead as you would like, the only places I've found so far that I can put the light I already had are off to the side a little, which makes lighting a little awkward.
But overall, this beast is worth every penny, just if you get one treat it with respect and care, this scooter is very much not a toy. And if you're not careful, you can very easily hurt yourself on it, be sure that you know what you're doing when on it.
This is the best escooter I've ever used. This is truly a premium, high performance scooter. I been using escooters for almost a decade from multiple companies, in every class an this is my third scooter from Roadrunner (two Nanrobots and now the RS5 2.0). I've seen the evolution of escooters first hand and what Roadrunner has done with this new line of scooters is amazing. Solid build, high capacity easy to access and remove battery, tubeless tires, top of the line hydraulic breaks and motor, large deck, modern design and the list of features goes on and on. Thank you Roadrunner for listening to the riders when making this scooter. I know I'll enjoy my RS5 2.0 for many miles and years to come.
