Some of the world’s best riders are set to race on the fastest electric scooter around the streets of Dubai.
Sixteen top male and female riders will compete together in a knockout style race for the title of the first Dubai Electric Scooter Cup champion.
Designed specifically for the event, the RS-Zero DXB edition is the fastest electric race scooter in the world with a top speed of over 140 kph.
