At $5,400, the new eScooter isn’t cheap, but Red Bull backs that up with the RBS#01’s specs. The scooter boasts a top speed of just over 27 miles per hour and a range of just 37 miles, making it a viable commuter for cities or otherwise bike-friendly routes. The team behind the scooter claims the model will take quite a lot of punishment before failing — up to 3G of load to be exact.
The scooter’s hub motor produces 59 foot-pounds of torque and the whole thing only weighs a scant 50 pounds thanks to the utilization of carbon fiber on every conceivable surface and structure. The RBS further lives up to its performance heritage with drilled rotors and calibers that would be more at home on a race car than a commuter scooter. A wide riding deck and huge sticky tires make the scooter handle incredibly well, according to the manufacturer. Pre-orders opened at the Formula 1 Austin Grand Prix last month and deliveries are slated for early 2023, though the website lists shipments as starting in summer 2023.
