What is the difference between a brushed and brushless electric motor?

The 2020 Lunar Nova x8™ uses the newest technology and houses a brushless motor. The basic difference is: brushless motors are a more advanced technology that produces double the power, run cooler, are more efficient, and much longer-lasting. Brushless motors are typically 85-90% efficient whereas brushed DC motors are around 75-80% efficient. This difference in efficiency means that more of the total power used by the motor is being turned into rotational force and less is being lost as heat. For a more detailed difference simply Google “Brushed vs Brushless Motors”.

    Are you guys coming out with a model thats more powerful than this?

  2. Mira Reese

    I am a mom with 2 very active kids. I got to speak directly with the owner and he recommended this model for my size. I am 120 pounds and 5 feet tall. I must say its exactly what I wanted. I had a Currie and an E-zip as well as a Razor scooter throughout the years, and this model beats them all.

    It’s perfect for going around our town while my kid’s bike. I can more than keep up. I love the size and how compact it is. It folds up and stores in my first-floor closet.

    I have been lucky so far with finding great deals online and feel like for the value this machine cant be beat. I am very pleased with the power and performance and can tell its built very sturdy. I also got a helmet and a lock from Luner and they are wonderful. I will be making more trips out with the kids now. Thanks, Luner scooters.

      I recall our conversation and so happy you took the time to leave a review. It means a lot to us. I hope you and the family are enjoying lots of fun outdoor trips now thanks to Lunar Scooters. I was happy to help.
      Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you and if you get a moment please add a photo to the review of you and kids enjoying the ride.


  3. Darren V

    I am new to the scooter world. I did tons of research and fell in love with this nova. I am so happy I did find this model. Its exactly what I needed. I go to and from work and cant take a big heavy scooter up my stairs. This thing weights the perfect weight for me to carry. I am around 175 pound and 5 foot 11. I cant say how much this thing moves me! I hit 29 mph today. I really am impressed I can also go up hills in my area of San Fransico. I will be continuing to tell my friends about Lunar and this awesome machine. Thanks Jason for helping me over the phone with my order.

    Darren V.

    • Keith G.

      Hi Darren,

      I spoke with Jason and he remembers speaking with you and helping you with your order. He says thanks for the love and support. We are happy that you are pleased with the Novas performance. It is quite amazing that a machine this compact and lightweight can go as far and as fast as it can. Please continue to help us spread the word about our machines and we really do appreciate your business and review.

    as another person on here mentioned, I had to wait about 3 weeks for their backorder to come in. Once it did, I was notified right away and the UPS tracking number they gave me told me the exact day it would arrive. Once it did, I was very happy.

    I had to call the company to ask a few troubleshooting questions however. Instructions are vague. (how to change speeds, it has 3 speeds. Also how to change from KM to MPH, but lukily was an easy fix. Ill share here in case anyone else wants to know.

    1. to change the speed on my nova all I had to do was, turn the machine on by pushing the power button on for 4 seconds. once on, I then hit the power button quickly once, until the numbers flashed, then select your speed by hitting mode. 3 is the fastest gear and selecting 1 will give you a top speed around 10 mph. I actually hit 29 mph today on it on gear 3.

    2. to change the km to mph, once the machine is on hold the mode button and power button down for a few seconds until PO shows up on screen, then hit mode a few times until you see MPH show up and then his power again. Thats it.

    I have the Boosted Rev scooter and paid literally double the price than this for a scooter that outperforms my Boosted Rev. I get double the miles than my boosted board and also get the same 29 mph top speed. Also, this thing has a slight suspension that my boosted does not.

    (EDIT)- I asked the Lunar to update this review and mention that Boosted boards are now out of business and no longer even work on machines or carry parts for the machine I have. Lunar has been super helpful throughout this whole purchase and they have been in business for 10+ years and say that are doing fabulous and not going anywhere soon! Nice to know I can get parts in the future.

    I also like the lights and side LED which my boosted does not have. I also like the ride, my boosted is stiff, and this feels like it has a lot more bounce and give. I will say I do like my throttle design on my boosted board better, but thats about it. I say NOVA all the way

    • Keith G.

      Hi Azaan,

      We are so pleased to hear you like your Nova more than your boosted rev. We heard about the brand Boosted going bankrupt and it shocked us. They are an awesome brand, and sorry to see them struggle and sorry to hear they left you and so many riders scrambling to find parts. But we are happy to be able to give you an outstanding product and be here for you now and hopefully for many many years to come. We have a long track history and aren’t going anywhere. We are blessed that we are having the best year of sales to date and we are so happy to be helping so many riders find the scooters of their dreams. thanks again for your review, business, and support.

  5. Vernon Dowling Sr.

    It arrived and what an awesome machine!

    Waited a little longer than I wanted, but after doing my research and looking at all the options available, I decided to go with Lunar. I am very happy with my decision.

    The owner was super helpful over the phone and helped guide me in making the right choice. The nova fits me perfectly. I am 5’11 and around 190 pounds. I still hit the advertised speed of 28 on flat. I have only put about 67 miles total on it since I got it last week but I can say its wonderful. Actually exceeds my expectations. It is well built, lightweight, fast, and goes plenty far enough for my work commute. All in all this machine was one of the best purchases of this crappy 2020 year. Thanks, Lunar Scooters for providing excellent customer service and offering a top-notch machine. You have my support.


    • Keith G.
