Dualtron Eagle 2020 PRO Review
Sometime last September 2019 as I was told, Minimotors Dualtron Philippines was invited to a press event for its dealers worldwide. In that event, Minimotors announced the production of its latest products slated for 2020 release.
What transpired exactly of course was not revealed to me but what happened was immediately the local dealer jumped and moved mountains to get this Eagle Pro to the Philippines and the moment it arrived I was asked to give it a test.
As a backgrounder, I have been riding various Electric Kick Scooters since Feb 2018 and have roughly traveled over 12000 kilometers using them due to the horrendous traffic situation in Metro Manila.
Here are the specifications:
Motor: 2 x 3600W (Max) BDLC Motors, 10” Pneumatic (split rim)
Battery: 60V, 22.4Ah LG cells
Charging Time: 12+ hours using 1.7A charger
Max Range: 85 KM
Max Speed: 75 KPH
Net Weight: 29.7 KG
Other features: Eye LCD, optional fingerprint scanner, folding lock built-in.
Range at 25kph speed constant.
The Dualtron Eagle Pro
Here’s the GoPro footage of the midnight run I did to take the Eagle Pro through its paces. Click here to watch the video!
And here’s the data I got from the GPS watch I use to measure performance independent of the built-in LCD.
Stable at high speed. No handlebar wobble experienced at all. On the Spider I am used to handlebar wobble beginning at 55kph that required me to either slow down or perch myself on the front of the deck (Titanic pose) which isn’t something I nor anyone will do in a real world commute situation.
The Ebrake performance has improved over all other previous Dualtrons, we were used to the “lag” wherein regenerative braking occurred around 1 second after one pressed the brake lever, on the Eagle Pro it was cut to maybe half of that so that really helps reduce dependence on the mechanical brakes alone to slow you down from a fast sprint.
DT3 riders shouldn’t feel they got shafted. The Eagle Pro does NOT have the same insane torque to burn rubber from standing starts. This one feels kinder so it’s less stressful. You can see from the Strava analysis that my heart rate didn’t spike to 90
100bpm which was a sure indicator I wasn’t concentrating really hard to maintain top speed mashing down the throttle for over 300400 meters during my speed run. On Thunders, Ultra and DT3 prior to me using a steering damper I would normally see 100 bpm heart rates indicating my conscious attempt to keep it standing and not wipe-out.
I like the Eagle Pro. I wouldn’t mind having it as well. It’s a great entry to the world of Dualtron electric scooters. As we end 2019, I personally have witnessed the admiration of the public of the brand. Last year I had to explain to car drivers/motorcycle riders while waiting for the light to turn green what a EKS was. Now it’s more common to hear “Wow Dualtron!” and “Cool bro!”. The word Dualtron has become THE scooter people know are good and this new model will just continue to improve the brand.
What it looks like inside the box
The handlebar is foldable similar to new generation Dualtrons. The throttle is equipped with EY3
Wheels are 10 inches and components look alike with the DT MX and Limited. Brakes use the Repute brand as default mechanical brakes
Front mudguard contains an eagle emblem. The first of all Dualtrons to place this kind of design
Eagle uses a DT3 Hub Core. You can see in the upper right that there's a hook at the rear side of the deck, used to clip when folded
Brake lights in color red. Lights have more spacious cover compared to other DTs
The rear side of the deck. A clip is attached by default to lock your DT when folded
What it looks on daylight
What it looks at night. Lights are all illuminating with the LED panels on the stem
Another finishing shot!
