Thank you for watching our Juiced Bikes Live Show last week! We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback and all of your great questions on the new Scorpion X. While we have responded to most questions posted, we thought it would be helpful to share a comprehensive Scorpion X FAQ in one convenient location. You asked and we're answering!
Q: Is there a chart that compares the previous Scorpion to the Scorpion X and to the HyperScorpion?

Q: Would you say the power distribution is evenly distributed throughtout the entirety of a battery's single charge?
This depends on the rider and what assist modes/speed/terrain they are traveling. It’s like a car, miles per gallon, the faster you go the more hills and more acceleration makes MPG go down.
Q: I would like to know the difference between the HyperScorpion and the Scorpion X?
The HyperScorpion has even more upgrades than the Scorpion X. The HyperScorpion offers a larger 1000w retroblade motor, 52v/19ah battery range, higher top speed up to 30+, alarm and turn signals.
