Rascal Vortex

The new Vortex is the flagship scooter in the Rascal range, a high performance full-sized 8 mph scooter. Featuring a modern, sophisticated styling, it is a premium scooter.

Product Description

Performance

Newly released in late 2021, the Vortex is the top performing Rascal scooter, a "bigger brother" to the best-selling Vecta Sport. It features a 900 Watt high-torque motor, giving it that extra power above and beyond its competitors, backed up by the Max Grip limited slip differential gearbox. The robust, sturdy chassis lets the Vortex offer a hefty 28.5 stone weight capacity, while large 75 Ah batteries give it an impressive range.

Comfort

The Vortex can comfortably accommodate those of all shapes and sizes, thanks to its highly adjustable seat and tiller. This ensures you can always find a comfortable sitting position, whether tall, short, slender or large. The captain's style seat is ergonomically shaped and well padded, featuring lumbar support, a headrest and adjustable armrests.

Performance suspension gives a great ride, and combines well with the large pneumatic tyres. These run-flat RunOn tyres will get you home even in the unlikely event of a puncture, ensuring you never get stranded.

Style

Aside from the smaller Vecta Sport, there's nothing else out there that looks like the Vortex. It has a unique, sophisticated styling to it, with a sleek tiller, modern LED lighting, sporty wing mirrors and attractive bodywork. A choice of two striking colours is available - titanium blue and metallic heather. Both look exceptional.

The waterproof superfast USB charging port is another luxury feature on the Vortex, allowing you to charge your mobile when on the go.

Canopy

An optional solid canopy is available that is designed specifically for the Vortex, ensuring it fits well and doesn't compromise on looks. A compact top box comes as standard with the solid canopy, and optional roll-up sides are available as well. Both options are on the Motability scheme, allowing you easy access to an all-weather scooter.

Our Verdict
The Vortex is a premium scooter for those after a model that blends style, power and performance while keeping you in the utmost of comfort. While cheaper models are available that are superficially similar, the drive on the Vortex is outstanding and really needs to be tried.

We'd recommend trying it alongside other top performing models such as the Vita Sport or the Colt Executive.
