We put 14″ bigger knobby tires on this scooter along with a chain twice as thick as any other chain on any other electric scooter, so it can handle this speed and torque without sacrificing any safety. These tires can handle any terrain thrown at it. It is equipped with a high output 50a 48v 20ah LifePo4 Lithium battery; it is 80% larger and has double the output of the battery we use in our 1000-lithium. This is the world’s fastest and most powerful built electric scooter in its class. Recommended age is 16 years old and up.

How much faster is our Rocket than all other models sold?

How much faster is our newest Lunar Rocket than every other model we have ever sold? Well, the quick answer is 5,800 rpm’s faster. To give a point of reference our Lunar Scooter 1000 model hits only 2,800 rpm’s (revolutions per minute). Our next biggest machine, the 1200 lithium model tops out with a motor rotation speed of 3,200 rpm’s. The 2020 Lunar Rocket 1800 hits an incredibly insane 5,800 rpm of speed. It is honestly ready to take off and can even do wheelies it has so much torque!

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

The 2020 Lunar Rocket™ 1800 (Brushless Lithium Electric Scooter) 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 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”.

How much faster is the Lunar Rocket than the Lunar Scooter 1200 lithium

With the added 500 watts and added RPM from its more powerful motor, the scooter is now capable of hitting speeds close to 35-40 mph *** (max 45 mph downhill. The most noticeable difference, however, is its increased take-off speed. In addition, this scooter is capable of carrying a 350-pound rider up hills—now that’s power!

  1. Douglas Cássia

    I have only had this thing less than a week, but could not help but give my 2 cents. I am a Lunar customer for years. had the 1200 lithium and the cruiser model for myself and kids. This new model is incredible in every sense of the word. So much power its almost scary. I had my neighbor race with the 1200 lithium next to mine and it was no contest. The rocket is exactly what it claims. I love the customer support if I ever need anything and I also love the fact that I usually don’t have any issues with machines, other than just normal wear from all the riding we do as a family. I love the rockets huge wheels. I thought they might not stand up to par as well as the 1200 lithiums wider tire, but these can in fact do everything my lithium model can. They are rouhgly same weight but its night and day with things performance. I have really nothing but great things to share with others about this model. I do wish it had a carbon fiber like my 1200 but I get that they try and keep the cost down. I can always add that aftermarket which i might do. They are def onto something with this machine. Thanks, guys for everything. Cant’ wait to see what you come up with next, but for now this suits my needs perfect…thanks

    • Keith G.

      Hi Douglass, you are very welcome. Thanks for being a loyal LS customer over the years. Happy the Lunar Rocket is exceeding all of our expectations. Remember to always be safe and wear a helmet riding the rocket!

  2. Dean V.

    Hey LS team, was waiting to write my review. Happy 420, your typical California guy here. This is the only scooter I have ever had that can handle my hills where I am located. I am not lightweight, 230 pounds give or take.

    I love this machine. It’s only 2 weeks old now so still too new to tell if it will hold up over time but it seems to be great construction so I have no doubts it should last a while. It would be cool if next model had an option for solar charging. I have to bring this upstairs, but Its still all good. Very happy with my purchase.

    • Keith G.

      Hi Dean,

      LOL, happy holidays to you. Hopefully, the rocket is keeping you high in the skies!! Thanks for the love and support man! BTW, the battery is removable and has its own carrying case. So all you have to do is remove that pack (takes about 10 seconds to unplug and bring the bag with you to charge outside of the machine). The rocket comes with an included adapter that will allow you to take the battery out and charge it anywhere without the need to have it hooked into the machine. Always follow safety instructions for charging.

  3. Eshan Kearney

    Ha, this thing is insane fast I cant imagine going 40 plus as I am a 67 year old. I am 6 foot 3 and I can stand up fully. I choose to sit down as I my knees hurt on long trips so having a seat is great. I spoke with the owner I believe and he helped me with my purchase. I was originally looking at the Lunar Cruiser model but he directed me towards this because it has a removable seat. I was scared because it weights almost double of that of the cruiser that it would be to heavy, but because I can remove the battery it makes moving it around easier. I am very happy with my purchase and its been 2 months I am just doing it because I love the product. I would have put 5 stars if it came with some free accessories. That would be nice. I realize they make some money selling those but I wish it came standard. I wanted a light so purchased that after market.

    • Keith G.

      Hey Eshan,

      Rock on man! Sorry about having to buy that light separate but we actually do that for security and safety. We have noticed that scooter models that have lights built in were more susceptible to being stolen and or the lights ripped off the machine causing damage. By selling our lights and accessories to be able to be quickly removed this helps combat that issue. Thanks again though for the review and for helping our business.

    Put around 15 miles on my new Rocket today…my community loves golf carts…got an offer already to trade for a cart…NO WAY!!…this machine is an animal!!…love it…was a little skeptical upon order because China manufacturing often is pretty shoddy…The rocket is well built, with quality parts, and is quite sturdy…its height was a little hard to get used to since I’ve been riding on an old Huffy “Buzz” for years…the speed is almost scary…by the way, Keith, owner of Lunar Scooters more often than not, answers the phone when you call…good guy, helpful and informative…Thanks for all your help Keith!!

    • Keith G.


      Thanks for the awesome review. I do my best to help every rider that joins our team. Super thrilled you love the Lunar Rocket and happy you are helping spead the word about our scooters. So cool about that potential trade! The Rocket can outperform any golf cart any day of the week, so keep your rocket and keep them jealous.

  5. Dieuby Bernard

    The scooter arrived to house and I couldn’t wait to put it together. Putting it together was quick easy. All around the scooter is great, money well spent.

    • Keith G.

      Hey Dieuby,

      Happy the machine was easy to put together- Make sure to charge fully before first ride and follow safety/maintenance instructions.

  6. Eli Goncalves

    I’d like to know how long does the battery last after a full charge, if I drive non stop. Could anybody help me with that question?

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Hey Eli,

      Based on 150 pound rider and flat terrain- the machines can go between 26-30 miles-

  7. Damarsi O. (verified owner)

    Owned it for 4 weeks. No issues at all. We LOVE IT! It is super fast.

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Hello Damarsi,

      Thanks for buying from us. We know its fast, just ride safe and always wear a helmet and follow rules- With so much attention on these things now its always great to set a good example for all others to see.

  8. Nicholas Auriemma

    Overall Fantastic BEAST of a Scooter, Highly Reccomended

    My 2 Cents:

    1. Box and scooter is very heavy and requires 1 very strong person or 2 people to lift
    2. Assembly is minimal -wheel and handle bars, took me 30 mins total
    3. Battery out of the box only took 4 hours to full charge (i guess arrives partially charged?)
    4. Scooter is a lot larger and heavier than I expected, very high quality
    5. I had a blast riding this thing and I am 6’2″ tall and weigh 260 pounds
    6. I reached top speed of 31 on flat surface and 35 going down a hill. I rode 8 miles in 30 minutes (average 16 mph city) and had over half charge left over at the end
    7. Suspension is amazing i could not feel any bumps or potholes.
    8. Couldn’t find much info on PSI in tires, easy to fill I put 30 PSI in both front and back worked great!
    9. I also added some grease to the chain which doesnt really have any on it from factory.

    Condiser: purchasing LED headlight/taillight so people will see you, also I recommend side mirrors.

    • Keith G.

      Hey Nicholas-

      Thanks for this detailed and very helpful review- Here are some responses to some of your points to make your riding experience more exciting

      1. Scooter weighs 74 pounds, and with padding from the box when it ships is around 85 pounds- so yes you need a strong set of arms
      2. assembly is indeed minimal- happy it was easy for you
      3. The battery does indeed come partially charged- always charge fully before taking it for your first voyage
      4. Awesome- We know its BADASS!
      5. Also awesome- kICK ASS!
      6. You purchased the 2018 model- all 2019 models now have a larger chain and sprocket taking away some take off torque (potential for wheelies) but giving you a 7mph increased top speed-
      7. the big suspension is very helpful for bumps-
      8. The proper psi pressure for the tires are 35 PSI
      9. Using lithium based grease is ideal for the chain- It is greased minimally from the factory though
      10. Agree about purchasing our LED lights and taillights- They help a ton-

      Thanks again for this review-

  9. Chuck Sprauer

    …fellow Rocket owners…and future owners…WHAT A MACHINE!!…after my 20th charge since purchase (I’m retired), this baby keeps making me smile…20 charges at minimum 25 miles per charge equal my 500 mile estimate…
    NOTES: I find that I rarely use “turbo” button…neighborhoods speed limits are 25-35…no need for faster, but if a big ferocious mutt chases me, HE’S TOAST…added orange ground effects, mirror, lights, front and rear…suggest to lubricate pivot points to get rid of any squeaks…took off the knobby tires and purchased street replacements…huge difference in handling, noise, and stability…maybe even added a mile or two MPH…I am 63 and was a little shaky standing up, but with the street tires…VERY COMFORTABLE…knobbys are great for the trails but my riding is ALL street, and these tires are fine in grass also…and sooo quiet now…one things for sure however…I definitely do not want to try THAT again!!…I would recommend the change and have suggested to Lunar owner, Keith that, in addition to carrying the entire rear wheel with new knobby, sprocket, and brake disk already ON THE RIM, he should try to stock the same with the street tire…after buying the tires, a three pack of special tools for 20 bucks, after I PUNCTURED two tubes trying to put new tires on the rim, in addition to getting the knobby tires OFF…wow, really fought it…so I think the 80 bucks Lunar charges for the whole shebang, done and on the rim, IS A DEAL…also had to find matching orange paint afterward to fix the rims after marring the paint all up trying to get the tire on!!…and…I COULDN’T RIDE FOR FOUR FULL DAYS!!…OMG!!…I definitely will buy my parts from Lunar, they stand behind what they sell…theres a lot of Chinese-made junk out there…anyhow, all in all, it was well worth the effort…I AM LOVING MY ROCKET…and Lunar Scooters is THE ONLY place I would ever recommend…HAPPY SCOOTERING!!

    • Keith G.


      500 miles! WOW! Sounds like the rocket is performing exactly as it should. We will certainly take your advice and consider adding street performance tires to our parts page as well. Thanks for giving riders an update after putting some serious use on the machine- It really helps riders know that these things are not cheap construction and made to last a lifetime! Thanks again for the comment and happy safe riding.

  13. Joe Valdivia (verified owner)

    I recieved the Lunar 1800 watt scooter days ago. I didnt know what to really expect, but man was is suprised. This scooter is a beast of a scooter. I was terrified in a good way to ride this scooter right from the get go.
    However, after i started to get a feel for the ride of the scooter and my initial fear, I couldn’t hold back my pure joy. Side note, i have never been on an electric scooter before, or anything similar. I wanted this to be a pure first time experience. Thank God i never rode on a bird or lime scooter before this. This scooter is an instant hit. Money well spent. Oh and by the way…. Buy a helmet, this is definitely needed. This is as advertised. Definitely not a toy to be taken lightly.

    • Keith G.


      Great pic. May the force be with you. Love the star wars t-shirt-

      Thanks for the review and for letting riders know about wearing a helmet- Definitely needed with the rocket as you can literally go from 0-35/40 in seconds.

  14. DaVonte Jones

    My name is DeVonte and I own the rocket-
    I am very happy with this purchase-
    I like that its big, fast and foldable
    I use it for commuting to work in the city
    Get the horn (its loud af) as its needed for safety
    thank you

    • Keith G.

      Mr. Jones,

      The rocket is indeed big, fast and super fun to ride and easy to fold. The audible horn we sell is super effective and LOUD. Thanks for rating.

  15. David G.

    4 stars- Would be 5 if all the extra accessories arrived on Time. Granted they all came, but took about 2 weeks to get everything. Scooter came first, Then the light, and my horn came last- All in all the scooter is amazing, just wish the horn and light came with it. Thats all.

  16. Brian

    Love my rocket. I’m 6’2 320 I know more than allowed but no issues at all with this machine. Pulls me no problem at all . I use mine to fish with so I’m also pulling 20 +lb carp with me also and still no troubles . Love it love it !!!!.lunar has my business forever .Does 29-33 mph with me on flat and no issues climbing hills at all. I give it 5 ++ stars. I call it a machine just because of the torque you would think you were on a combustible gas powered machine . Never would’ve thought a electric scooter would be so torquey.Im a believer in LUNAR FOREVER !!!!. Keep up the fantastic job Keith and co. Great job on a awesome MACHINE!!!!!!!!!!

    • Keith G.

      Brian. If I was to hire a paid review writer I would def hire you. That’s great, I’m glad you are enjoying the machine. Happy I was able to convince you on the phone that this machine was right for you. If you would be so kind, show the lunar crowd a picture of your fishing success next to the scooter.

      Happy and safe riding-

    1000 MILE REVIEW…Took me a little longer to get to 1000 miles for my second review…all is soooo well…still love this machine…got away from me once on takeoff with the “turbo” button unintentionally activated…little damage…be CAREFUL…this is not a toy!!…the only little issue I have is constant attention to the chain drive system…do yourself a favor and build a little stand so the rear tire is off the ground when making chain adjustments…the right tension and a well lubricated chain make your drive so quiet and smooth…leave A LITTLE PLAY IN THE CHAIN TENSION…the chain should have A LITTLE “give” to it…maybe a half inch of movement up and down with moderate pressure halfway between the two sprockets…otherwise, the chain is quite noisy and the HUM from the motor seems like it is straining…keep your chain damp with a good lube…silicone spray doesn’t last long, I like using the wetter lube spray like the one I use on my garage door rollers…put a rag or old towel under and behind the rear wheel to catch the lubricant so it doesnt make a mess of your driveway…while on your stand you can accelerate to knock off some excsess…all in all, this is a great bike…the Tesla of electric scooters…finally, distributers come and go, I strongly suggest purchasing from Lunar Scooters…they will be in business years from now, and back up their product with great advice and follow up…happy scootering!!…

    • Keith G.


      WOW. 1K miles. That is awesome.

      This is such an honest and helpful review- I am sure riders will have some follow up questions for you, which I encourage them to ask here on the review section, or they can email us directly and we can continue to offer support. Once again thanks for writing this for others and great advice about the chain. Absolutely great tips. To make it very clear, we did not pay or ask Chuck S. to write this review. He did this on his own because he loves his Lunar Rocket.

      Happy and safe continued riding Chuck. Waiting to see the next review at 2 thousand miles.

  18. David Greenberg

    Owned now for 6 months-
    1. fast
    2. goes the distance- I am 6 foot 3 and roughly 250 pounds and I can go anywhere with this. I usually go between 15-25 miles on a single commute without issue-
    3. I enjoy the build quality- I beat it up and it handles the abuse
    4. Love the shocks- Can go over big bumps and rocks without issue
    5. Tires are sturdy- I hit potholes here in Ashville and have had no issues. My bike tires have been replaced 2 times since I purchased this machine. So the rubber is thicker than a bike.

    1. not easy to get on and off the subway- I realize for its size its more of a street/off-road machine, not meant to be moved up and down stairs that easily. I do it anyway and its hard on the back.
    2. wish the handlebars were higher- I am 6’3 and have to bend over slightly when standing up to make it comfy- I would say its ok, but really designed for 6 foot and under for everyday use- I usually use the seat anyway which is perfect.
    3. I wish the machine had a digital battery gauge so I knew exactly to the number how much juice is left.

    All in all, a smooth, fast, and fun ride-

    • Keith G.

      Hello David,

      First off, thanks very much for the review- Its helpful to see what is working well and what we need to look into for the future-

      in regards to the cons part-
      1. I do understand how big the rocket can feel sometimes. For subaway/stairs our lunar cruiser is really designed for urban settings. The rocket is much more of an off road beast.
      2. The bars are the longest they can be to allow for folding of the rocket and still fit in a trunk. Maybe on future designs we can find a way to fold them somehow.
      3. That would be a nice feature- Our cruiser model has this feature and its nice, but it does add a lot to the cost- We wanted to keep the machine cost down as much as possible. The battery gauge on the machine now is good also, I realize its not digial but the red, yellow and green bars do work.

    Absolute perfection rocket is no joke I’m just going to say as a 15 years old (did it so you know roughly how old I am) this is perfect for going to school takes you there fast and can charge in school.

    • Keith G.

      Please be safe and always wear a helmet- The machine is intended for riders 16 years of age and older-Also make sure you always charge the machine in a safe location *this is mentioned in the safety instruction.
      Happy ridding.

    this scooter takes you from point A to point B in the same time as a car would. Great!

    • Keith G.

      Happy to hear-
      As fast as a car commute- No parking issues- No nasty car emissions- That is what we love about LUNAR.

    The Lunar Rocket 1800 is the best adult toy ever!

    The purchase of the Lunar Rocket was bought to be the best adult toy I ever bought. Turns out that the Lunar Rocket is just as practical.

    Multiple Trips into Center City from my office (a ride that takes approximately 20 minutes) at about 8 to 10 miles (each way) has been a fun and much less expensive trip. Additionally, I bought a $90 bike lock, disconnect the batteries (which I take with me in their pack) and lock-up the scooter where you’d park a bike.

    Over the last month, I have saved more than $150 in parking fees alone; but had a blast doing it. Additionally, I have saved a great deal of time not getting stuck in vehicle traffic when coming from Center City during rush hour.

    * Fast – Average speed for me over 80 miles traveled so far is about 20 mph
    * Takes the hits of City potholes, sidewalks and streets
    * Versatile
    * Inexpensive form of City travel
    * 20+ miles per full charge is more than enough
    * Amazing service and response times from Lunar Scooter. Owner, Keith, is on-the-top of his game, especially in an industry that is unregulated and very sporadic.

    * Heavy. The scooter is at least 65 lbs. Not easy to load into a vehicle, of any kind. But the weight (in my opinion) helps with City streets.
    * Battery indicator. The battery indicator is not very consistent and does not provide enough detail. So, you need to ride a bit to find out how it reads.
    * Brakes. Personal preference here. I’d like the next model to have larger, more secure brakes. When doing top speed, it is hard to stop within a practical distance.

    P.S. – This model does not have a GPS or speedometer, so you will need to buy a Bike Phone Holder and download an app. I use Speedometer, a free app with a 99% accuracy rating.

      Hi Ryan,

      What a very thoughtful and thorough review. You address some great points here. I am sure future riders will be very thankful to have this information.

      Regarding your Upsides: Thank you so much for acknowledging all the hard work that goes into our company and our products

      Regarding Downsides: Scooter is sturdy indeed to handle those big city potholes. If lightweight is what riders need/want the cruiser model we sell is perfect for that.
      Battery indicator: You are 100% right. The gauge could be made to be more advanced/sensitive, but your solution of using an app to learn the color levels of our indicator is brilliant.
      Brakes: Adjusting the brakes is the same system as any bicycle. If that is not something you have done before a quick youtube search of “Adjusting Mechanical Disk Brakes” can help you out with making sure to get the adjustments just right. Its the same exact system on all bikes so any bike shop could also adjust for you if ever needed.

      Once again thanks for the review and sweet picture.

    I had my first electric scooter in 2002 and it raised eyes but it was brand new to most. The Lunar is mega fast and I ride all through downtown DC all day and night. I added a front light and back light and plan to put led lights on bottom to make glowing effect. If you live in the city this is major convenience. Only one downfall it needs to have a left and right blinker and a light up effect so people know yor coming. Other than that get your Lunar it’s a blast.

    • Keith G. (verified owner)


      Sounds like you have blinged out your ride! Can we see a pic after you add the lights on the bottom? I know on behalf of our riders that we would love to see what the finished result looks like. Thanks for posting and sharing your experience with the Rocket thus far.

    KEITH…Let me say first and foremost…THANK YOU for the phone call, even tho I was out…taking the time to explain the “tariffs” was very much appreciated…and…I support Trumps efforts…hopefully he will get it done…I have referred the neighbors that ask about my bike to you and your follow-up is a great reason why…I get it, and will stop whining now, and get on with my review…God Bless…Chuck S

    I now have amassed OVER ONE THOUSAND MILES ON MY ROCKET!!…this last 500 took a little longer than the first, but one thing’s for sure…I still look for every excuse I can to ride this beast!!…everything still A-OK, as a matter of fact, for myself, even BETTER than the first 500 miles…Why??…I ordered a smaller sprocket…actually, I believe it is the stock one that comes on the Lunar 1200…about an inch and a half or so SMALLER diameter…needed the matching chain too, and smaller sprocket makes for less torque, but a little faster speed…I am 64 next month, as I said in my last review, I “lost it” only once when the Turbo button was inadvertently ON…I am too old for wheelies, and this machine will do them, however, I am even happier now than I was…I weigh 205 and .I’m hitting 35 down a slight grade in my neighborhood WITHOUT Turbo…I’m sure 45 is attainable, but not by me!!…the torque is actually fine for Florida…no hills…and this thing still MOVES PRETTY DARN QUICK OFF THE LINE…kept up with my little grad-daughters mini bike!!…I still love it, and am already thinking about when I am going to have to get another one, because Ive worn this one out…and…I’ll stick with Lunar…they’ll still be around…THANK YOU TO OWNER KEITH, WHO ALWAYS CALLS BACK IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION!!…Happy Scootering to all…Chuck S…

    I’m waiting your reply. By Email.

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Hello Shakur,

      At this time our distribution is only inside of the USA. Since we offer free shipping anywhere inside the us, I would suggest shipping to the closest destination here and making secondary travel arrangements once it gets to your location in the US.

  29. Nick

    I just bought one and it is awesome. I love it. Kieth the owner of lunar scooters is very helpful if you have any questions about it.

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Hey Nick,

      Thanks for the nice comment. Do you have a picture you can add to the review? Thanks

    i wanna ask you about turbo button , it’s will active when i click or unclick ? and i dun know why i was ordered orange color but u sent to me the white one ???

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Hi Brian,

      I had been in contact with your girlfriend who made the purchase on your behalf and I had told her we only had white in stock at the time. She said that was fine. So that is what was shipped-

      Regarding the turbo/econo button, when the button is pressed in it cuts the speed of the motor down, when left out it is in turbo mode. Hope this clarifies things.

    Get it; I guarantee it’ll be the best $1,300 you’ve ever spent. We live in a little place called Gladstone, Oregon–a quaint town (most people joke that it’s Maybury) of 3sq miles. Luckily the scooter comes in Orange and Black–the town high school colors. My husband and I own a holistic wellness shop ( just five blocks down the road, so this little beast has become our 2nd car. I also plan and MC our local community festival, which as a parade. At 9:30 one fine August morning, I was riding around with a megaphone strapped to myself waking them up in preparation for the parade soon to begin.

    Since I’m doing all-street riding, the knobbies were chewed up in about 4 months of riding it daily (up to 5+ miles, I actually take the long route to work, it’s only five blocks down one street, or I can take the pedestrian path that’s 3mi, crossing two rivers and going through a nature park.)
    I switched to road tires, and the ride is AMAZING! I thought it was good before, but now the scooter is absolutely silent. I seriously love my scooter, and one of my favorite things about it is that it’s completely unbranded. They throw in some decals you can put on there, but meh. I ride this guy for at least a hundred miles per month and I love it.

    WARNING: Don’t run it up hills for any extended period of time. My front control box completely blew out and fused together after a particularly long ride with many hills. When I called, Keith sent me the replacement parts (was still under warranty) and made everything right.

    The best thing I have to say about buying the scooter through this site is that their customer service is impeccable. They have always returned my calls and emails, threw in extra parts when things went south, and more than anything, they’re nice.

    Thank you Keith and Staff for giving me such a fun daily commute.

    • Keith G. (verified owner)

      Dr. Bryce,

      It is wonderful to hear that Lunar Scooters is providing you with a scooter that has become your 2nd car replacement option. We love hearing that. Any way to cut down on carbon emissions is a plus in our book.
      Also what a cool way to get the word on (megaphone!!). Love it.

      We are always here to help and happy our services and product have given you such enjoyment. Here is to the next 1k miles!
