Hiboy S2R is the perfect companion for adults as it comes with multiple features. These include a removable battery, easy foldability, and a decent mileage per charge.
Its detachable battery feature is the most convenient of all because you get to swap it with a high-powered alternative. Apart from that, you can always carry a spare battery to extend your scooter's battery life.
But that’s not all…!
It has numerous other features on offer and in this Hiboy S2R review we will explore all of them in brief detail. So, let’s get going.
Hiboy 2SR Review
The Hiboy S2R packs quite a punch with its powerful battery and motor. It is designed for adults with some safety features and is incredibly lightweight. The following section of this Hiboy S2R review will discuss some of the technical details associated with this scooter.
Hiboy 2SR Electric Scooter Technical Details
Let’s begin our Hiboy S2R review by discussing the motor and power. The S2R comes with a powerful 350W motor that is brushless. Therefore, this electric scooter won’t make any sounds while you are operating it.
But being noiseless is not the only feature of this motor. It can also allow you to ride at a top speed of 19 miles per hour. Therefore, if you deem an electric scooter that you can use for your commute, Hiboy S2R is the best option.
Additionally, this powerful motor is easily accessible for repair and maintenance purposes. This motor can conveniently handle an inclination of up to 15% provided you don’t exceed the weight limit of 220 lbs.
Besides that, you also get to use its conveniently accessible speed and cruise control according to your riding requirements.
Next up in our Hiboy S2R review is the scooter’s removable battery. The company has equipped this electric scooter with an innovative battery design. It ensures convenient replacement of your scooter battery within 3 seconds.
Additionally, you can reach up to 17 miles per charge. This might be a bit disappointing for some but Hiboy provides you with a facility to buy another battery and double your mileage per charge.
With another battery, you can easily reach up to 34 miles per charge which is far more impressive. You need to get both your batteries ready before you get on the road so you don’t have to deal with battery issues during your commute.
The removable battery is not that heavy so it will not increase the overall weight of the scooter. Hence, you can conveniently carry your Hiboy 2SR electric scooter anywhere.
Design and Structure
Next up on our Hiboy S2R review is design and structure. One of the best features associated with this aspect of the scooter is its foldable design and lightweight.
The electric scooter has a very sleek design and can come with a max load capacity of 220 lbs. Its weight ranges around 31 lbs and is pretty convenient to fold up and carry with you. With the sleek construction, the Hiboy S2R scooter can fit right in-car trunks very easily. No matter how compact storage space is available, with such a design you can always make the most of it.
Another excellent feature of this design is the swappable battery that allows you to extend your mileage. This is a brilliant feature to customize the mileage of your electric scooter according to your needs.
Lights & Braking system
Now, let’s talk about the lights and braking system in this Hiboy S2R review. The electric scooter comes with solid tires that are 8.5-inch in size. Therefore, the scooter requires a good quality braking system.
Hiboy has made sure that the rider of this scooter remains safe all the time. It has equipped the scooter with a dual braking system featuring a disc brake on the rear end and an electric ABS regenerative braking system on the front end.
The scooter will be highly responsive when you press the brakes. Moreover, this Hiboy S2R e-scooter also features a light system to keep the rider safe while riding in dark conditions.
Such a lighting and braking system provides you a lot of confidence on the road and keeps you safe in low light conditions.

Hiboy 2RS Review and Video Test
Comparison with GOTRAX Apex Electric Scooter
Overall, the Hiboy S2R electric scooter is perfect in terms of convenience and performance. But how does it compare with a similar electric scooter of another brand? The closest in competitions to the S2R is the GOTRAX Apex (check last price here).
The GOTRAX Apex also comes with a foldable design but it is almost half the price of what the S2R has on it. So, you will save if you go for the Apex. However, you will notice that the Apex comes with different kinds of bells and whistles as compared to the S2R.
For instance, there is an LED display on the handlebar of the Apex, and folds far smoother than the S2R. But when you compare the overall performance and output, the S2R takes the lead by a significant margin.
For example, the GOTRAX Apex scooter comes with a mileage of 15 miles per charge which is lower than S2R’s 17 miles per charge range. Additionally, the Apex can reach up to a top speed of 15.5 miles per hour which is also lower than S2R’s 19 miles per hour.
And the reason for that is, the GOTRAX Apex only features a 250W motor in comparison to the 350W motor of the Hiboy S2R. So, you might end up saving more with the Apex but it is also an e-scooter with lower capacity. And if you are searching for a better top speed and more mileage, you should go for the S2R electric scooter.
So, after going through this Hiboy S2R review, we can conclude this is a decent machine to take on longer commutes as well. Its changeable battery features allow you to customize its power and mileage according to your commute needs and it is a huge convenience. Furthermore, it comes with a decent top speed and mileage.
