In 2021, the Apollo Phantom broke the rigid mold of electric scooter designs available at the time and introduced the first center-mounted display on the first fully-integrated performance scooter.

Now in its fourth iteration, the Phantom beats out its previous versions in almost every metric. We’ve been eager to compare the Apollo Phantom V4 to its predecessor, the already excellent Phantom V3. You can see the results of our ultimate shootout below.

Our speed, acceleration, range, and hill climb tests showed that this is without a doubt the best generation yet of the dual-motor sports scooter that changed everyone’s expectations for performance electric scooters when it came out.

We performance-tested the Apollo Phantom V4 versus the V3, head-to-head, and also tested the Phantom V4 with two different-sized riders to see the difference 70 pounds in rider weight makes when it comes to acceleration, top speed, etc.

Who Is This Scooter For?

post-image-1The Apollo Phantom V4 is for riders who want a solid, fast dual-motor sports scooter with lots of range. You can find more raw power per dollar in other scooters, but the Phantom is so stable, it makes it easy to use its power safely.

The Phantom V4 gives you the ability to get into crazy fast, full-on car speeds in the city, and lets you get more aggressive with both the throttle and the brakes than most other scooters in its price range.
