EMOVE Cruiser vs Speedway IV Pro
We compare two nearly identical electric scooters: the EMOVE Cruiser versus Speedway IV Pro, also known as the Speedway 4. However, these two electric scooters have some significant differences, including a large price difference.
The recently updated for 2019 EMOVE Cruiser packs a massive range and boatload of new features. These include an official IP67 rating, semi-hydraulic disc brakes, a quality LG battery pack, and tubeless 10″ pneumatic tires. The EMOVE achieved a massive 50-mile range during our real-world testing.
The MiniMotors Speedway IV Pro is a well-established electric scooter with renown MiniMotors brand and is a scooter that has gone through multiple generations of development. It weighs nearly the same as Cruiser and also features a single 600 W electric motor and dual disc brakes.
EMOVE Cruiser Pros
- Dual semi-hydraulic Xtech disc brakes, which will give better modulation and braking strength compared to the Speedway’s mechanical disc brakes.
- An official IP67 rating whereas the Speedway 4 Pro has no official IP rating. The IP rating (short for ingress protection) describes how water resistant the scooter is and in the EMOVE’s case it is very tolerant and can be ridden in the rain. Very few scooters have this water resistance rating.
- The EMOVE Cruiser has tubeless pneumatic tires whereas the Speedway IV Pro has inner tube tires. Tubeless pneumatic tires will be more flat resistance than inner tube tires and are easy to repair using slime if a flat does occur.
- The Cruiser has a 352 lb weight limit, compared to the Speedway IV Pro’s 299 lb weight limit.
- EMOVE Cruiser has a massive 1586 watt hour LG battery pack which gives it 50 miles of real world range (according to our tests). The Speedway 4 has a smaller 1331 Wh battery and less range.
Speedway IV Pros
- The Speedway 4 Pro doesn’t have any clear advantages compared to the EMOVE Cruiser. It is made by a more well-known manufacturer, MiniMotors, but falls short of the Cruiser in most areas. The Cruiser is simply the newer, better, cheaper version of the Speedway 4.
The EMOVE Cruiser and Speedway IV Pro are nearly identical scooters in many aspects — design, appearance, size, battery, specifications. However, the Cruiser is clearly the winner here. It copies all the great things about the Speedway IV Pro, but packs in numerous upgraded components and is hundred of dollars less expensive.
The Cruiser is sold and supported by VORO Motors. VORO Motors is not as well-known as MiniMotors, but is a very established and respected distributor. Owners of the EMOVE line of electric scooters generally give very high marks for both the scooter and VORO for support.
If you must have the more established MiniMotors Speedway brand, the Speedway IV Pro is available directly from eWheels.
