Nanrobot D6+: The Lowdown

Nanrobot D6+ electric scooter side

Released into the market in the first quarter of 2021, the Nanrobot D6+ is a revolutionary electric scooter that thrills city-dwellers with adrenaline-rushing speeds, and off-road riders with incredible hill-climbing power. It packs a massive 52V 26 AH battery that can take you up to 45 miles (72 km) on a single charge. But that’s not all! The battery powers the scooter’s dual brushless 1000W motors to yield a top speed of 40 mph (64 km/h).

Regarding safety, the D6+ comes with a solid and compact aluminium-alloy frame, 10-inch high-performance tyres, and a wide deck for unmatched comfort and stability. It also boasts three integrated lights for illumination and visibility and powerful front and rear disk electronic and hydraulic brakes for a smooth stoppage. Riders will also love the front and rear hydraulic-spring shock absorbers that make it easier to navigate most pothole-ridden terrains.

The D6+ also features several ergonomically designed controls, comes with an IP55 rating for water resistance, while it can carry a maximum-load capacity of 330 pounds (136 kg). You will also love its fantastic foldable design. On the downside though, its 77 pound (34 kg) of weight will make the D6+ tiring to carry across long distances.

NanRobot D6+ Summary

Although NanRobot has produced some top-performing e-scooters previously, there is no doubt that the D6+ is in a league of its own. This scooter comes with a massive 50V 26AH battery that powers the two independent 1000W brushless motors. With such power, this machine can reach a maximum speed of 40 mph (64 km/h) and go up to 45 miles (72 km) on a single charge. It also comes with Eco and Turbo modes and buttons to activate or deactivate the second motor for better regulation of power and speed. Its all-wheel drive means that skidding or getting stuck on muddy roads will be the least of your worries.

In addition to its power features, the D6+ also comes with well-thought-out safety features. First, it boasts a sturdy frame built from low-density aluminium alloy and a long and large deck for enhanced stability and comfort. Second, the 10-inch pneumatic off-road tyres deliver unmatched traction and rolling efficiency on any terrain. Add to this the C-type dual-spring hydraulic suspension into the mix, and you can understand why this beast can manage even the bumpiest of roads.

With such oomph and speed, the Nanrobot D6+ requires incredible braking power and this another area it doesn’t disappoint. The e-scooter combines electronic and hydraulic braking for smooth and solid stopping. During our review, we found both to be so powerful that they can throw you off-balance if you don’t prepare before coming to a halt.

The Nanrobot D6+ electric scooter is also designed with night riders in mind. Its bright and aesthetically appealing set of LED headlights help to perfectly illuminate your path at night, while the taillights, sidelights, and signal lights ensure that you stay visible to other motorists on the road.

Additionally, all controls are well laid out on the dashboard, and the foldable mechanism makes it easy to lift and store the scooter in your boot. Impressively, D6+ is rated with IP55 standard water resistance which protects your machine in case rain pours while you’re outside riding.

If you’re looking for a comfortable, safe, powerful and durable electric scooter for your off-road or around-town adventures, then the Nanrobot D+ is a machine we cannot recommend highly enough!

Performance Overview

Although the Nanrobot D6+ boasts everything you expect to find in a world-class electric cooter, one of its significant highlights is its overall performance. Put simply, the two 1000W motors make this machine an off-road beast.

The dual brushless motors deliver a top speed of 40mph, making the D6+ among the fastest mini-vehicles on the market, and since its maximum speed is panic-inducing, then riders can switch between the Eco and Turbo modes to enjoy lower speeds when they want to.

If you live in an area with bumpy, pothole-ridden or uneven roads, then this electric scooter has the right tools to help you manage them with ease. First, it comes fitted with 10-inch pneumatic off-road tyres that offer unmatched grip and smooth rolling efficiency. Additionally, the spring-hydraulic suspension is mounted on both the front and rear wheels to absorb all kinds of shocks, thereby keeping the scooter perfectly stable.

Other excellent features that guarantee optimal performance include the wide and long deck—which offers enough space for footrest—exceptional stopping power, and a sturdy and stable frame. We also can’t fail to mention the elegantly positioned controls and ergonomic handlebars that make riding the scooter hassle-free.

Top Speed & Acceleration

With two interdependent motors that produce 2000W, this electric scooter can hit a top speed of 40 mph 64 km/h). While such speed is enough to make a statement, we recommend that you exercise moderation especially while riding through busy city streets.

Accelerating feels super smooth and steady while cruising on the Nanrobot D6+. The machine comes with two riding modes that allow you to choose how you want to attack the pavement. With the Eco mode, you will enjoy decent speeds and save battery power; on the other hand, the Turbo mode activates both motors thereby allowing for insane speed.

Hill Climbing

The D6+’s hill-climbing ability is why this machine is dubbed an “off-road beast”. The scooter’s 2 x 1000W motor allows it to tackle hills with a maximum inclination of 30 degrees, while maintaining a decent speed. Of course, this will depend on a few things such as the rider’s weight, the battery level and direction of wind among other aspects.

Battery Life & Range

The Nanrobot D6+ comes with a 50V 26AH lithium-ion battery that delivers a maximum range of 45 miles (72 km) on a single charge. The battery takes 10 hours to charge with a single lithium battery charger but you can lower the charging time to about five hours if you use two chargers simultaneously. However, there are claims that this scooter’s battery life leaves a lot to be desired especially when it comes to longevity.

Motor Configuration

The Nanrobot D6+ electric scooter is equipped with two hub motors on each wheel. The duo yields a joint total of 2,000 watts worth of power output. This means that the D6+ sits at the upper echelon alongside the Zero 10x and Dualtron X. While the Nanrobot official website doesn’t specify whether the wattage is nominal or peak, no one can question the incredible power of this mini-vehicle.

Construction & Build Quality

Apart from its power, speed and comfort, the next best thing about this scooter is its solid construction. Given that it’s designed for off-road riding, its entire frame is made from low-density aluminium alloy and it weighs about 77 pounds (34 kg). In addition, the deck is padded with a rough, rubbery material for increased traction, while the handlebars are covered with the same material to reduce friction and make them easy to latch onto. D6+ can carry up to 330 pounds (149 kg or about two mid-sized adults).

Suspension

The D6+ can manage all rough or bumpy terrains, thanks to its top-notch dual suspension. The spring-hydraulic shock-absorbers on the front and rear wheels combine well with its 10- inch tyres to offer more stability and comfort.

Ride Quality

The D6+ is one of the most comfortable and stable machines on the market. It comes with a sturdy and compact frame, an extra-large and padded deck, ultra-wide tyres, and elegantly positioned controls. Additionally, it boasts dual suspension for improved shock absorption while riding on rough terrain, and a simple locking mechanism for easier storage and portability. Stopping the e-scooter is easy since it combines electronic and hydraulic braking. Finally, the IP55 water resistance rating means that components are hardly affected by water while you’re cascading home through the rain.

Braking

Since this scooter can reach a maximum speed of 40 mph (64 km/h), the brakes must also be robust and dependable. The high-performance machine comes with electronic and hydraulic brakes that deliver near-instant halts. However, while the brakes are powerful and dependable, riders should reduce the scooter’s speed before they stop. Trying to bring this e-scooter to an abrupt halt may affect your balance—or even lead to an awkward fall.

Portability

The Nanrobot D6+ electric scooter is not a machine that riders can carry for long distances; this scooter weighs a whopping 77 pounds (34 kg)! The good news though is that it easily folds and latches. A Two-Snap-On folding mechanism allows the stem to collapse and connect with the scooter’s body, thereby creating a solid structure that can be carried in the boot of a medium-sized vehicle.

Water Resistance

The D6+ is rated IP55 for water resistance. This means that most of the scooter’s components won’t be affected by water while you ride in the rain or after it has stopped raining. Even then, it doesn’t mean you should test your mini-vehicle by cascading through every puddle or get entirely submerged in water. There are still some electrical components that require minimal exposure to water, so be cautious with those.

Lights

If you enjoy after-dark adventures, then you’re in luck! This electric scooter from Nanrobot comes with various integrated lights to illuminate your path and signal other motorists on the road. It boasts bright LED headlights, visually appealing sidelight and rear signal lights.

Tyres

The Nanrobot D6+ body rests on 10-inch pneumatic off-road tyres, which boast outstanding rolling efficiency and grip for fantastic ride quality. So, whether you want a scooter for daily use or just a weekend adventure, the durable tubed tyres will provide enhanced stability and a smooth driving experience on any surface.

Deck

With this foldable electric scooter, you won’t have to place one foot behind the other while riding. This scooter comes with a 24-cm-wide deck, which means that you will have enough space to keep your feet side by side while tackling all kinds of terrains. A wide deck also allows you to assume the correct posture, which is essential when navigating bumpy roads or taking longer rides.

Controls & Display

This high-performance electric scooter boasts ergonomically designed controls that are comfortably latched onto the two handlebars. Since this scooter comes with rear and front brakes, the brake levers are placed on both handles. The left handlebar also houses other controls, such as the key lock, horn button, signal-light buttons and on/off headlight button.

The accelerator sits to the right, alongside the clear LCD display. This latter shows the power level, ride time, battery level speed, and more. In addition, it boasts two switches that allow riders to switch between modes.

Reliability, Warranty & Customer Support

As a brainchild of Nanrobot—one of the most reputable electric scooter companies worldwide—D6+ is highly dependable. This machine is stable, fast, powerful and comfortable. Nanrobot offers an extended 1–2-year warranty, but you will have to fork out more cash to enrol in it.

Nanrobot also boasts responsive and reliable customer support. Considering that most of the improvements to the D6+ are what customers complained about in the original Nanrobot D6 model, they clearly listen and respond to their customer’s queries.

Maintenance

To ensure that this device performs optimally, riders should tighten the screws, watch for any broken or torn parts and check the tyre pressure regularly. Also, change the battery as soon as it starts showing signs of aging, adjust the brakes and dust off the entire scooter after each use.

Accessories & Upgrades

  • D6+ Fast Charger
  • D6+ Seat
  • D6+ T-Type Bar
  • D6+ Rear Fender
  • D6+ Tyre and Tube

Known Issues

At the time of writing this review, D6+ is still relatively new on the market, which means only a few people have had the privilege of using it for some time. However, from our research and experience riding it, we feel that there are a few issues that we feel should be addressed. First, its battery life is underwhelming compared to competitors in its category. Additionally, the brakes are a little tight and can make riders stumble if they don’t adjust them before use.

Is this E-Scooter value for money and is it worth buying?

The Nanrobot D6+ ranks among the most impressive electric mini-vehicles we’ve seen on the market to date. This e-scooter delivers incredible top speed, packs reliable safety features and is extremely comfortable on the road. Whether you’re looking for a scooter to scour new off-road trails or enjoy around-town escapades with, the D6+ can do it all. While not the cheapest, its features totally justify this price. But don’t take our word for it; get yours today and experience all this first-hand!
